    I would like Sitefinity to power my site's root (e.g. but don't want all of the Sitefinity files cluttering up my root directory. Is there a way to allow me to install the Sitefinity files to a subdirectory, but have my webpages exist in the site root?

    In other words, I currently make Sitefinity a virtual directory to my site like this: But I want it to resolve to, but still keep the Sitefinity files in a sub-directory still. I do not want to clutter my root directory with Sitefinity files. Can anyone help with this?

    Thank you for your question. 

    Unfortunately this will not be possible - the reason for this is that Sitefinity should receive the request anyway. If you are storing the files elsewhere, but rather to the place accepting the request, Sitefinity will not even be triggered to process it. 

    What do you think about the option to create a new web site, which runs on root level, but different port number? Let's say this will be http://root:81. This is possible, just select the root node in the IIS console tree, and click on Add Web Site. 

    Kind regards,
