How to configure 2 sites to use Port 80?

Hello,

I have sites using port 80 already on SharePoint 2013 server.  I like to create another site using port 80.  Some other admin created, but I don't know the steps.

How can I do this?

Thanks,

Paul

Simply configure the new site using host headers.

This will allow you to bind the additional site to use port 80

Simple concept is to keep some uniqueness in IIS when using same port in more than one web app or bindings. Either use a host header or map an ip address to it.

I created a host header for the second web application with Port 80 being used, but in IIS 7 it says the application can not be started because its sharing the same port as the other website using port 80.

What can I do now?

Can you provide a screen shot of your iis manager with sites expanded please

You indicated web application above and I am not sure if you are trying to bind an application or a site.

Are there any other ip addresses on this computer ?
If so, simply binding the site to another ip will give you what you want with little or no complexity.

You can simply edit the site bindings and specify an ip address from the dropdown if more than one ip address is present on the computer.

I am not sure why host names  are not working for you as expected since this is a standard config, that is used to achieve the exact functionality you are after.

Basically, I followed these steps:

http://community.bamboosolutions.com/blogs/sharepoint-2013/archive/2013/02/12/how-to-create-a-second-web-application-using-the-default-port-80-in-sharepoint-2013.aspx

Internet Explorer is The page can't be displayed.

One the server, I have one site with port 80

I have 5 sites on the same server with ports 80, 81, 82, 4358, and 32298.

This is a Windows 2012 Server, with IIS Manager 6.2.  I added the host entry in the host file, but the site did not come up.

Oddly, in SharePoint administrator, it shows all sites with port 80, but when I look at the Bindings in IIS, they show the different ports. Not sure why that is.

Ok so can you please post a screenshot of the IIS config from IIS manager for me (with sites expanded)


This will make it a little easier to understand what you are working with.

I will just create the sites with non-port 80.  I really don't have a strong requirement to have all of my sites on port 80.
