    We've been working on a project for a couple of weeks using Sitefinity 3.6 community edition using a Windows XP Professional box (IIS5.1/Sql Server 2005) .

    Somehow our IIS metabase has been corrupted while upgrading a third party tool; The only chance to get it up working again was to reinstall IIS from scratch.

    We are now facing a big problem trying to get our previous installed sitefinity 3.6 community working properly.

    Could anyone tell us how to configure IIS5.1 (Permissions, Virutal Directory paths) considering we have already installed sitefinity 3.6 on the server?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi alessio marziali,

    Generally the only thing that you should do is setting the virtual path to project's root and enable Forms Authentication.

    All the best,
