    I was reading the installation guide about how to install Sitefinity projects into a different web site.  It shows using the rootSubPath key in appSettings, but i'm running IIS7 which does not have the same type of path as the example ("/W3SVC/859801432/Root").  This is a specifically IIS6 and lower path.  How should this be done for IIS7?  I do not have any entries for IIsWebServer in my MetaBase.xml file as this is now tracked in applicationHost.config.  Thanks.

    Hi Richardsonke,

    In this case we recommend you using the Blank Project approach - http://sitefinitywatch.com/blog/09-02-24/Installing_Sitefinity_using_Blank_Project.aspx
    This way you will start up with a blank project, you could store its physical files wherever you want and can create its application(virtual directory) under the node you want.

    Hope this helps. 

    Kind regards,
