Deleting global.asax

by jesper In reply to ASP.NET Global.asax file

The global.asax file is optional as written in this article. Be aware though that if you use any kind of Session objects, you need a global.asx with at least an empty Session_Start event procedure. If not present, IIS will create af nw session on every request to the server.

I struggled with this for some time before I discovered this.

So I am already using this file, all though it doesn't have any coding in it. That said i wil probably implement my own logging scheme, via the Application_BeginRequest event next time i make a website with a need for specialized logging.
