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

I have a situation where there is a server running IIS7 - it contains a mix of .ASP, .NET and PHP solutions in separate directories.

I'd like to install a copy of Wordpress at:


and I'd like to be running it on a EC2 Instance (ie different IP) and be able to handle all rewriting etc... while not affecting the operation of the current site.

How can I achieve this?


Important - this must be a subfolder not a subdomain!

is it the IIS server the one at the front. i.e. the one that will be hosting www.mysite.com? Where is the apache (from your tag)? –  drone.ah Jan 24 '13 at 15:01
Take a look at URL Rewrite. You can use it to rewrite the URL to the other server. iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite –  Matt Houser Jan 24 '13 at 16:01
