I have created a WebSite in IIS, with the following correct physical path: d:\inetpub\wwwroot\nameofsite. When i try and browse for this site, I get a 404 resource missing error. From the webserver, there error states it is looking for the resource in d:\inetpub\webmail\nameofsite. When I move the resource to this location, it works. I don't understand why it would claim the resources are in inetpub\webmail dir, when I never specfied it there. I deleted the site, and created it again, in case I did it by accident, but it still does it.

Thanks in advance

Are you looking to goto d:\inetpub\webmail\entitialviridordahsboard\entitialviridordahsboard ???

Error is from the Map Request Handler Change image 4 forward from /entitalvirtidordashbord to 109.108.142.135

    Looks to me like your also hosting multiple sites with the same IP address. You can do this with port 80 and site bindings like you have in image5 however you cannot forward traffic to the sites ip address. You need to set your DNS records A name to point to the ip address not a forwarder. – Jamin Quimby Jan 16 '15 at 19:50
  • Thank you Jamie. I'll confess, i am predominantly a programmer, and website setup really is new to me, so you'll have to excuse my inexperience. To answer your above question, I am looking to goto d:\inetpub\wwwroot\enitialviridordashboard, but it seems to be wanting to goto the webmail version, as per image 1. – John Jan 16 '15 at 22:23
  • sorry I meant, Jamin – John Jan 16 '15 at 22:30
  • Do you host the webmail on the same ip address? I assume the WebPortalSTW site. – Jamin Quimby Jan 16 '15 at 22:42
  • By following you last comment about changing the DNS records A name, it now works a treat. Now enitialviridordashboard.co.uk hits my holding page. Thank you so much for your help – John Jan 16 '15 at 22:42
