How to copy/clone IIS7 website on local server?
Posted on 2012-08-24
I have an existing IIS7 website that I would like to clone and have it be on the same local server. So I would have 2 identical sites that have different Site IDs (running off different IPs/ports).
I've tried to export the shared configuration & import, but that only replaces the current sites instead of adding a new one (even if I change the existing Site ID before the import). I've also seen suggestions to modify the \windows\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config file, but I'm not familiar enough w/ the file to make the appropriate changes.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
