Extending your Webs

IIS (Internet Information Server) running under Windows XP Pro only allows 
the creation of a single web-server.

 

You can however, extend your webs in one of two ways...

 

First Method

 

Create a virtual folder anywhere on your disk(s). (see virtual folders entry). 
This example is called fentest

 

Extend 1

        

To set up a web in the directory select Open (NOT New) in FrontPage 
and navigate to the virtual folder

 

Extend 2   Extend 3

 

When you click on Open FrontPage will show this message  

 

Extend 3  

 

If you click on Yes the Web will be set up in your virtual directory and can be called from pages in your web-server. Note that the URL will take the form of

 

   http://webservername/foldername/default.htm  

 

or if you have a fully qualified domain name 

 

   http://mydnsname/foldername/default.htm 


Second Method

 

Sub webs can be created under the main web. This can be done directly in the IIS snap-in

 

Extend 5

 

Or it can be done in FrontPage

 

Extend 6

 

Extend 7

 

You can now go ahead and create pages in your sub-web.

(It's worth noting that if you're really just concerned with keeping your site 'tidy' and manageable, then you don't have to follow either of the preceding methods - just create folders in your web ! )
