Understanding Sites, Applications, and Virtual Directories on IIS 7

 

renaming applications in IIS 7.0

 

  1. open C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config as Administrator
  2. find the application entry
  3. changed the value (“/Site1”) of the path attribute at the application element and nothing more:
    1. <application path="/Site1" applicationPool="DefaultAppPool">
          <virtualDirectory
              path="/"
              physicalPath="C:\Sites\Site1" />

      </application>
  4. I had to restart IIS (iisreset from command-line) for this to work
