1 Answer 1


Try something like:

appcmd.exe set config  -section:system.applicationHost/sites /[name='My Site'].[path='/'].[path='/'].physicalPath:"c:\newpath"  /commit:apphost
  • Thanks. This worked for me... appcmd set site /site.name:"site name" /application[path='/'].virtualDirectory[path='/'].physicalPath:"D:\newpath". Yours might work as well! Feb 21, 2020 at 22:56
