Project Web App - Internet Accessible


I am having trouble with getting our PWA site to be accessible from the internet, and in turn, I have found it behaves kinda strangely with IIS. So, most web sites, I go into IIS, add the Cert, change the binding, and go! Not so much with PWA.

Fist of all, I do not even see PWA as a web site in IIS, I have SharePoint 80, Default, and SharePoint Web Services. If I browse to any of them, I do not get to PWA. If I go to http://servername/PWA, I get the PWA site. If I go to http://ServerIP/PWA, I don't get the site.

In conclusion, how does PWA work with IIS, and how do I make it public (internet) over 443?

PWA (Project Web Access) is a SUBSITE in a SharePoint web application. Therefore in IIS manager you will only see the SharePoint web app - everything else is then handled through SharePoints page parsers/mappings.

In your case you have to do two things:
- Create Alternate Access Mappings in SharePoint Central Administration
- Configure the IIS web site for SharePoint in regards to reflect the bindings

A really good document in regards to AAM (which is not specific to PWA as this is related to SharePoint only):
BTW, which SharePoint / Project Server version?

Thanks for the reply Rainer. Its Project Server 2013 and SharePoint 2013.

I am going to look at the guide you sent and see if I can't figure this out. I will let you know how it goes!
