I am hosting an application on an IIS 7.5 server. The url is, it is mapped to foobar/current.

I am now trying to add a bug tracking system ( which is run as a separate application. I created a "second level" new app under site foobar and called it btnet. Is mapped to the pysical directory foobarcom/btnet and uses a new 4.0 app pool

When I now go to my reqest is not served by the (second level) btnet app as I expected but by the foobar parent app. (Which of course can't make sense of the path.)

What do I have to do to get the second level app activated? Bonus point: Is there a better bug tracking system that works with sqlserver08/IIS? (Unfortunately, installing mysql or postgres is not an option for me.)

Cheers, Duffy

Voting to move to server fault. This is a server configuration question. – NotMe Oct 18 '11 at 22:05

Please double check whether you have mapped the application properly.

Do you think a hosting issue tracking system is good option? It saves you a lot of effort in setting up the server. You can check out Issue Tracking Anywhere to see if it fits your needs.

The mapping is correct, as far as I can see. However, I noticed that ISS lists the content of the "parent app" foobar directly under the sites tab and the "secondary app" btnet (for on the same level as the foobar content. I would have expected foobar and foobar/btnet to be two parallel apps. – duffy Oct 19 '11 at 9:48
