Multiple site Deployment

Hi

We have created 2 sites Site 1 and Site 2 with folders, Site 1 is working fine.

For the Site 2 we are facing a problem to pointing in IIS (Folder).

We have done the following changes like
1. Folder mapped to site 2 (ex: accountingsite)
2. created site2 in IIS and pointed to same folder like localhost:mojoportal (both sites pointed to same folder of mojoportal)
3. Added the Host name 192.168.0.8 forums.firstsite.home & 192.168.0.8 blogs.secondsite.home

But when we browse the sites only site1 will display site2 is not displaying
We are ussing 2.3.1.9 MS SQL

I have done also changes as per document.

Please help me

Regards
Dhanraj Manure

Re: Multiples iste Deployment

To use the multiple site feature of mojoPortal, you do not need to create multiple IIS sites. You need one IIS site with the urls for both sites in the bindings (IIS7) or the Host Header (IIS6). Follow the instructions below for creating the additional site in mojoPortal:

  1. From within the first mojoPortal site, select Administration > Site Settings.
  2. Change the dropdown next to the Site Title to New Site.
  3. Replace the Site Title with a name for the new site.
  4. Click the Save button.
  5. Click the Host Name Mapping tab.
  6. Enter the url for the new site and click the Add Host Name button.
  7. Click the Features tab.
  8. Select the features you want to use on the second site.
  9. Click the Save button.

If your DNS and IIS settings are correct, the single mojoPortal installation will now serve both site.

HTH,

Re: Multiples iste Deployment

If you are using Folder based multiple sites you do not need to do anything in IIS or DNS. What you must do is create the folder that will represent the second site. For example, if your second site is named CompanyBlogs and you want it to be accessed by browsing to http://yoursite.com/companyblogs, you need to create the companyblogs folder at the root of your site and put an empty file named default.aspx inside the folder.

Re: Multiples iste Deployment

Hi Dhanraj,

I am sorry but I am confused. Are you using a different domain for your second site? If so, the folder has nothing to do with it.

Is your site accessible via the internet? If so and you don't mind giving me administrator privileges, I would be more than happy to check it out and see what I can do to help you. You can email login details to joe (at) i7media (dot) net.

Thanks,
Joe D.

Re: Multiples iste Deployment

Hi Joe

Thanks for replying

Yes we are using different domains like
forums.mysite.com
blogs.mysite.com
www.mynewwebsite.com

We are deployed on the staging server, But we want to deploy it on production.
I am not able to configure the 2nd site in IIS, also how to point (Site 2 Folder) to domain blogs.mysite.com.

As mojo supports multiple sites, Is it supports multiple domains also?

Plz help me

Re: Multiples iste Deployment

Hi Dhanraj,

I explained how to do this in my first post. You need to add your domains and sub-domains to the host header list on the site that is running mojoPortal in IIS. You will have only one IIS website running mojoPortal in this scenario. For DNS, you should have the domains and sub-domains pointing to the same IP address as your currently running mojoPortal site.

Follow steps 1 through 9 in my first post to get mojoPortal setup for multiple sites.

Hope this helps,
Joe D.
