I need to run a website with just windows authentication. Given the following situation:
- The location of the default website is: c:\inetpub\wwwroot
- The location of my code is: c:\Sites\WebApp
- My hostfile is edited so any .local i use points to 127.0.0.1
- I am using Windows 7 professional
- IIS version: 7.5
I have created a new application called 'AppX' underneath the default website and point it to c:\Sites\WebApp. It will use the DefaultappPool. When I switch off anonymous and switch on windows authentication all works well when I go to localhost/AppX/.
What I really want is a new website (No need to question why I want this). So I created a 2nd website and did exact the same creation of the application. Everything is the same; destination, app pool and authentication.
Now when I browse to this website web2.local/AppX/ I get the 401.2 - Unauthorized error. What am I missing here?
UPDATE: I also tried to create a new website directly pointing to the target folder. Same settings for authentication, applicationpool, etc. Same result as using an application in a new website.
