Hi Experts,

I have a couple of websites on a Win2003 / IIS / Plesk 10.4.4.

I'm wondering, how can I make directory, which is virtual currently, NOT virtual?

Thank you!

I don't understand.  The "virtual" part only applies to access by IIS.  It still has to be a real directory in the operating system.

you can set any directory to "virtual", but how can you un-set it?

This isn't making any sense.  "virtual" has nothing to do with the actual directory.  It is only about how IIS sees it, nothing more.  If this is about the other question where you have <!-- #include virtual = "/includes/common.asp" --> ,  the word 'virtual' just tells IIS to look for it in the root of the web site.
