ASP.NET – Great explanation of Server.MapPath parameters “.”, “..”, “~”, @”\”, “/” and “/path”

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/18

Thanks StackOverflow user splattne (Stefan Platnner) for explaining the differences between the various parameters you can pass to Server.MapPath, and giving some very clear examples.

You can also use it with HostingEnvironment.MapPath, which has the added benefit that it doesn’t require HttpContext (for more detail on it, see Working With HttpContext.Current).
