So, I need to host multiple websites using IIS7.
The default website that comes configured works flawlessly.
I added yet another web site using "Add Web Site" under "Sites":
site name: portal
application pool: portal
physical path: C:\portaldirectory
IP address: All Unassigned
host name: portal.mydomain.com
When I try to browse there (on the web server or from outside) I get an error:
"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
No HTTP error code or anything like that.
The configuration of my default web site is as follows (which works flawlessly):
site name: default web site (doh)
application pool: DefaultAppPool
Physical path: %SystemDrive%\inetpub\wwwroot
IP address: *
When I browse to mydomain.com, the default website loads as intended.
What could be the problem here? I didn't set anything else outside of IIS7 (merely mentioning it so you wouldn't assume that I have set other possible settings that come naturally for someone who knows what they are doing)
Thanks in advance!
