So since IIS only allows me to install applications (in this instance, wordpress) as containers under the parent of a Web Site, I need to redirect all the root URL requests sent to my domain, to the application's container.
Example: Request to www.mywebsite.com should go to the application wordpress.
IIS Tree Looks as such:
Mywebsite (IIS web site) -- wordpress (Application)
Is there a way to do this that is transparent to the user? I don't want to transform the URL into www.mywebsite.com/wordpress - I want it to remain www.mywebsite.com.
When a user hits www.mywebsite.com it should not transform the url in the user's browser - but the user should be hitting the wordpress application in IIS,=.
Another way to put this may be better stated as - is there a way to setup a web binding for an application specifically?
I have tried using HTTP Redirect and URL Rewrite but have been unsucessful in getting the results I desire.
(This is on a Win Server 2008R2 box with IIS7.5)
