I am trying to set the database type in one of the root folders outside the www/ folder. To set the database type address, I want to use the whereami.asp facility. The problem is that I don't know what to type into my explorer to execute the whereami.asp file. Can anyone help?

If you're using IIS to create a virtual folder, then you'd use the virtual path to point to the database. For example:

Virtual folder="forum/myDB" actual location="c:\forumdb" (outside the "c:\inetpub\wwwroot" path)

In config.asp, you'd use server.mappath("myDB/mdbfilename.mdb")
