Windows Server 2012 R2 HTTP Redirect

Here are my steps to help you to both enable and use HTTP redirect so you can redirect from a web folder to another location without relying on a client-side redirect:

  1. Go to Server Manager
  2. Click Add roles and features
  3. Click Server Selection
  4. Select a server from the server pool
  5. Next
  6. In tree nav, go to Web Server (IIS) > Web Server > Common HTTP Features
  7. Check the checkbox beside HTTP Redirection
  8. Click Next until it continues through installation
  9. Close
  10. Go to IIS Manager
  11. Drill down to the folder of interest
  12. Double-click the HTTP Redirect icon in the right pane under IIS that now shows up
  13. Enter necessary info
  14. Click Apply on the far right
