We have created a new test Wordpress website on our SBS2008 server running IIS7. When you are on the server and browse to http://localhost/wordpress
, the website looks & works fine, and the login to make modifications to the site works perfect. The Wordpress folder is currently under the Default website.
We host our real website, abc.com, at netsol. We want to change our Internet DNS to point to our static IP and have abc.com display the Wordpress site.
When you are on our server and browse to http://localhost
, you get the default IIS7 webpage. I can edit the Basic Settings of the Default site and change the Physical Path to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wordpre
ss, and then browsing to http://localhost
brings up the Wordpress site with the theme busted, and the site login breaks, along with webmail.
I have little experience with IIS and while I was able to follow tutorials to get a Wordpress site running properly, I’m afraid I will have to modify all the .php files or even start over from scratch creating the Wordpress site properly.
Does anyone have an easy solution to my dilemma, or can even give me steps on what I should do in IIS first (create a new website named abc.com…) before re-creating the Wordpress site? Thanks in advance! Steve
