Possible conflict: how to disable WSS to see if that is the problem?
Posted on 2006-06-12
I have a client who has asked a 3rd party software company to install their software on his server. It is web based software and uses IIS.
Unfortunately - it is not working as designed - and it seems to be a conflict with WSS (Sharepoint is also running on the server).
Their website seems to have been setup as a sharepoint site - and this seems to be the problem.
Does anyone know a way to disable sharepoint so that I can see if their software then works as designed? Or am I looking at backing up and uninstalling sharepoint? (Which the client is willing to do if it comes to it). If it does come to that - I have used the stsadm binary to backup localhost - is this all I need to do to backup all the sites under localhost?
Many thanks in advance.
