Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

Hello Joe,

 

I have a question about using mojoportal with other applications.

I will explain.

 

I have a shared hosting account wiht mojoportal installed on it. (ex. www.abc.com)

 

How can I install a .NET application on a sub domain for example http://support.abc.com. without getting an error?

 

by the way it is .NET helpdesk ticketing application.

 

Thanks.

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

You shouldn't get any kind of error by hosting a different .NET application on a sub-domain of your mojoportal domain. Have you created a new website with the sub-domain using your hosting provider's control panel? If so, you should be good to go.

What errors are you receiving?

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

Hi,

I really need to make an FAQ entry about this soon as it comes up fairly often, its not a mojoportal issue but a general ASP.NET issue.

If you have one .NET app running at the root and another running as an application in a virtual sub directory the parent Web.config can interfere with the child because there is config inheritance. The way around it is to wrap conflicting items in a location element in Web.config. There are many articles on the net about this, one is this post in Rick Strahl's blog.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

yah so your child app is trying to load dlls defined in the mojoportal web.config. As I said do some googling and reading up on how to use the location element to resolve these issues.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

Cabrera,

I would just like to point out that you are installing your app in a virtual-directory under your domain that is hosting mojoPortal. You said in your original post that you are running your HelpDesk app in a sub-domain. Sub-domains and virtual-directories are very different. You might want to try running your HelpDesk app in a sub-domain as that should not present any problems or conflicts with other ASP.NET apps.

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

I am hosting my website using godaddy.com and godaddy automatically sets a subdomain as a virtual folder.

Should I keep it that way or should I delete this settings from IIS?

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

A fine example of why I don't like GoDaddy. :-) You could use my hosting. :-)

If GoDaddy will let you create a new site (not a virtual directory) using a sub-domain, that will do the trick. I don't have a GoDaddy account so I can't mess with their settings to figure out how to do that for you. Sorry...

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

Everything Joe Davis has said is true.

Be aware also that godaddy url masking is a problem with mojoportal, disable that if you are using it.

In addition to making the /Data folder writable you must also make the /App_Data folder writable and follow the medium trust instructions linked previously. There are people using mojoPortal on godaddy. I don't know if they use multiple apps or not.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

Joe,

 

I was able to render a simple .aspx page by removing the virtual folder setting from IIS, however, in order for me to properly view this page I had to move the compiled assembly to the root bin directory folder where mojoportal is running.

 

Can I specified where to look for assemblies in my child web.config file?

Re: Hosting other applications on IIS separate from Mojoportal

I think all that setting did was remove the application settings from IIS for the directory in which your helpdesk app is installed. This will not work properly, I can almost guarantee that.

You might want to get in touch GoDaddy support to see what the proper procedure is for creating a new website which uses your sub-domain as its host header. This should get you a whole new application pool and everything so your sites are running independent of each other.
