All you need to do is copy the content from the ALC directory, to the home directory at the root of your website.

In IIS, expand your website, the right click on ALC and Explore.  Copy all of the contents of it.  Now go back into IIS, and right click click at the root level of your website (name.com) and choose Explore again.  Now paste all of the content from /ALC into this folder.

Now all of the content that was in ALC is now accessible from the root of your website.

*  Moving content to one higher level to the root folder is one option...

* Setting Home directory in IIS property windo to ALC directory is another option .. ( Hope not other files in root is needed by this site... )

Sorry for the delay

I was out of the office.

servoadmin your option 2 is what I need.  I put that on a previous project but I dont remember how I actualy change the Starting point that, I think, must be in my case
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ALC

I try many combination by changing the Local path of the Web site property, Changing the application name tio get it right but nothing works.  Do you have any idea on how to do that?

Thanks

Hello every one

Since I didnot find a way to do exactly what I want I found a way around.

I did build a  http://name.com web site that redirect to http://name.com/ALC and that do the trick.

Still I wish I can do better if you have an idea post it.

Thanks
