Virtual Directories

  Asked By: Sydney    Date: Nov 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1113

The Portal usually runs within it's own web site in IIS. Is it possible
to create a virtual directory in that same web site to run a web based
application and tell SPS to exclude that path? I cannot get this to
work. I don't know if this is possible.

It is, create  the virtual  directory in IIS first, then go in the Windows
Sharepoint Services admin, select the virtual server, click on managed path  and
add the virtual dir as an excluded path

I have done this with several web  sites. Unfortunately once I exclude
them from managed paths, FrontPage can no longer access these web sites.
Is there some trick to getting to these excluded paths to make changes?

SharePoint doesn't play well with FrontPage extensions, so on sites extended
with SharePoint it handles communication with FrontPage, and therefore doing an
exclusion turns of the communication. You have 3 options:

1) Use FrontPage locally on the server and use the file path
2) Deploy to the /_layouts/ folder which doesn't need exclusions
3) Setup a seperate virtual  server - if it need SharePoint context (e.g. you
want to use the Object Model) then run  this using the SharePoint app pool
identity, but don't extend the vserver

I believe so - you need to add your virtual  directory to the exclusions
lists in the Managed Paths via SharePoint Central Administration
