    Does the project manager need to be installed under the default website (localhost) or can it be installed under a different domain?

    I have tried to copt the project manager files to a different domain and it works to a degree but when creating new projects the manager creates the virtual directory for that project under localhost. Can this be changed?

    Can this be changed so that the "create project wizard" creates the virtual directory under a different domain?

    Hello senzani,

    The Sitefinity installer looks for the default IIS site (Default Web Site w3svc/1/root) to install the virtual directories. If that site is stopped or does not exist, it would fail in creating the virtual directories.

    However, there is a way to change this if you edit the MetaBase.xml which is the actual XML file that contains IIS configuration settings. Here is how to tell the installer to create the virtual directories under a website called "My Test":

    1. Open the %SystemRoot%\System32\Inetsrv\MetaBase.xml file and from the respective IIsWebServer element, copy the number in red.
    <IIsWebServer    Location ="/LM/W3SVC/859801432"
    ServerComment="My Test"
    2. Open the /telerik/Sitefinity3.1/ProjectManager/Web.Config file and in the <appSettings> section, add this:
    <add key="rootSubPath" value="/W3SVC/859801432/Root" />
    4. Restart IIS and create your Sitefinity project.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
