Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

how can i bind a URL to a web application that is a child of the default website in IIS 7 ?

i can do this no problem when i create a normal web site in IIS, using the bindings and then pointing the URL in the hosts file.

i can access my website like this http://localhost/websiteName

what i would like is to access it.. with http://websiteName/

Is the answer not.. make a new website? Or are you running on Windows desktop OS? –  ITHedgeHog Apr 26 '11 at 10:11
that would be easier, but i have been given a staging server that has that config, so im trying to replicate that –  Truegilly Apr 26 '11 at 10:20
