Need help with Windows SBS 2008 and setting up website testing


  • Hi,

    I have a small network with the SBS 2008 server running as a domain controller.  It has IIS7 running on it as well.  What I am trying to do is develop small web apps and then test them on the server in a directory other than under wwwroot or at least in their own subfolder under wwwroot.

    I can create a site in IIS7 manager just fine.  but I cannot seem to figure out the proper authentication, authority or whatever.  Also, no matter what address i try, I get either a 403 (access denied) error or 404 (it's just not found).

    I try to look it up in my workstation browser as http://server:80 (or whatever port I assigned) or i try server.domain.local.

    Nothing works at all.

    I've been doing research for 3 days and am at the end of my rope.

    Several years ago I did Server 2003 standard and IIS6 and had figured it out, but this has me stumped.
