- [Instructor] You may have noticed…that there's a web.config file…in the directory along with your published binaries.…It plays an important role,…but maybe not the one you expect.…If you've used ASP.NET in the past,…you're probably familiar with using web.config…to store configuration for your application.…ASP.NET Core doesn't web.config…because it uses a new configuration model instead.…So, why is web.config in this folder?…It turns out that IIS still needs web.config…even if ASP.NET Core isn't using it.…Web.config is used to configure…the ASP.NET Core module that IIS uses…to act as a reverse proxy to cast rule.…
It's important that web.config exists…in the root of the published directory.…It's required for IIS to properly host…your ASP.NET Core applications,…and it also prevents IIS from accidentally…serving the content from the Project directory,…which could contain sensitive configuration files.…So, you don't want to remove it.…Visual Studio and dotnet publish…both use a tool called publish-iis…to generate the web.config file for you automatically.…
