Install SharePoint 2010 on server with public website RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to run SharePoint Foundation 2010 on the same server with my public facing website created using Expression Web 4?

    Goal:  The public website is for everyone, obviously, but there will be links on the public website to direct users to the public facing SharePoint Foundation 2010 site so clients can log on and view reports from SQL Server Reporting Services that are integrated with SharePoint Foundation 2010. 

    Is this possible?  Caveats?

    Should you do it? No

    You can have both pure IIS sites and SharePoint sites on the same server(s). It certainly is not recommended, but sometimes the need is there and resources are limited. In that case make sure that you configure the SharePoint web application wit host headers and verify that the IIS bindings (hostheaders vs ports) do not interfere with each other.

  • Dirk,

    Thank you for your answer.  If this is all just a matter of proper configuration, then this is probably the way we will go.  Like you said, sometimes the need is there and resources are limited.
