Installing SPS NEXT to WSS

  Asked By: Sydney    Date: Jan 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 948

I need to place SPS next to WSS on the same machine (rather than
stacked one on another.) I'm using some third-party components that
don't function well on SPS, yet I need the search and taxonomy
functions provided by Portal.

My first thought is to install them on seperate virtual directories
on the same server? Can that be done? If so, does anyone know of
documentation outlining how to designate a specific virtual server
during installation?

Alternate strategies?

I would do the followings:

create two Directories under Inetpub:

create two website, ( not virtual  directories)
pointing to the two directories accordingly. Make usre
that those two directories are empty.

( either using different port number or using host
header , I prefer host header name )

Install Sharepoint and point the WSS to the WSS site
and SPS to the SPS site. ( be patient, SPS site
creation takes time, You may have to wait for a lillte
bit for the site to appear )
