Hi,
I've created one more site within the same Win 2008 server but I get this error

Service Unavailable


HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.

when I am going to the new site, that is
http://my-friend.co

then I have to stop the new site and start the old one, that is

http://my-friend.co/Start

and I get no problem when going to the old site, using the same server. why?

Hi,

In the host header, you will need to use the site name instead of IP address for the two websites.

Many thanks. Are you talking about Site Bindings or not? If not, where is host header?

Yes that is in the Bindings.. hostname, port, ip address, one must be unique for each site

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

Here are the bindings I have, while I also have the same for the previous site, which is working fine.

No, I've started VS2013 already, which is of the new site I am talking about, while VS2012 is of the previous site.

Yes, I have.

The question is why I cannot go to
http://my-friend.co

but I have to go to this

http://my-friend.co/Start

in iis manager go to the site,
you will be presented with this viewif you switch to content view
Content View
What do you see there? Perhaps you should change your virtual directory to <whatever_it_is_now> to <whatever_it_is_now>\start

you first have to SELECT the site as shown here
http://screencast.com/t/EXOiSB5H

I'm thinking that all you will see in the content is the folder start so you have to change the virtual directory to point to <path>\VS2012\Start

since virtual directory that you named vs2012 can be pointing ANYWHERE what are the contents of that folder! is the folder start actually the location of your website's aspx/html files?

VS2012 is actually pointing to this physical folder

C:\inetpub\VS2012

to which each time I do deploy the relevant projects.
