MapPath sometimes refers to the directory the .NET solution is in and not the website and sometimes it does refers to the website itself. If we add the tilde character (~) it will return the website's path.

For example I have my solution at C:\Projects\src\MeinApp and inside that directory is the website (C:\Projects\src\MeinApp\WebService).
MapPath("/Schemas") will return 'C:\Projects\src\MeinApp\Schemas\' but
MapPath("~/Schemas") will return 'C:\Projects\src\MeinApp\WebService\Schemas'
which is what we finally want.

string dir = HostingEnvironment.MapPath("~/Schemas");
