    Hi,

    We have an existing website (e.g. http://www.example.com) writen in ASP .Net 2.0, with various pages (e.g. http://www.example.com/some-function.aspx). We want to provide our users with some static content as well, and we need this to be driven by a basic CMS. But we do not want the whole site to be CMS driven, just a section within it. We want it to be on the same domain, within a "content" folder (e.g. http://www.example.com/content/some-article.aspx would be driven by the CMS, but not the rest of the site).

    Is this possible? If so, how do I do this? Would it involve an Alias or Virtual Directory in IIS? Would this cause issues with web configs, and perhaps paths to pages and images?

    Many thanks,
    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    You can still wrap the whole system to Sitefinity. All of your existing pages will be embedded as External Pages in Sitefinity - just to have them in the Sitemap. This means that you will not rework the existing pages in any way, but still you will have centralized administration.

    Other than that, you can upload the sitefinity project in a sub directory of your domain. As for the web.config files and the settings, it is enough to stop the settings inheritance from the main web.config to the child ones - please refer to the discussion at web,config inheritance for more information.

    All the best,
    Georgi
