Configuring IIS 6
I have hosted a site on IIS 6. I want to assign some urls to the site for accessing it publicly.
Here's the structure of the Folders that I have hosted on IIS:
1. Root Folder --> Default.aspx
Now, I have a domain name that looks like --> www.xyz.com
Ideally, I would just enter the main url i.e "www.xyz.com" in the IIS --> Site Properties --> Web Site --> Advanced --> and enter the URL in the Site Identification area with port no. 80.
But, my current required needs that the above mentioned default.aspx page opens when someone goes to the url of kind --> www.xyz.com/blogs/
Now, IIS is not letting me make this kind of entry in the Site Identification area.
So, one of the options is that I should place my website folder with the structure like:
Root Folder --> blogs --> default.aspx
But, can this be done, using the IIS?
Create a virtual folder under the website in the IIS admin panel. Point the directory to the original files. That should do the trick.
it worked. but in the end, it was jst creating folder...doesnt matter to me, as long it doesnt require me to create a folder in my own code.
