I have installed the SharePoint Foundation in production server using standalone configuration.
at that time I faced a problem of port 80. There was no configuration asked from the SharePoint but SharePoint was installed and started using port-80. Now my other sites that was running on port-80 was stopped dramatically. After checking in IIS I found the
"Default Website" was stopped.
Now it was urgent to resolve the issue. I did a little bit search and found a solution that I need extend the web application from central admin and use port 79 instead of 80. After the new will started working, remove the port-80 site of SharePoint from IIS
and use port-79 site.
I did the same given. My problem was resolved.
Now The Problem is :
After one day, I was installing the Search Server Express. The Search Server Express was installed successfully but while running configuration wizard I got an error
of about not having SharePoint Site on port-80. The error was asking me about to create a site on port-80 instead of site running on port-79 as a Default Site.
Next step I have tried was again run setup of search Server Express. Here there was two option i.e. to remove or to repair the setup. I selected the repair option. Here
I got the error unable to repair the Search Server express. Please check the log file.
Now I need:
How to install/re-install the or configure the Search server express on foundation? so it should start working.
Which step is missed, I am facing problem in install?
I cant do:
I cant uninstall the SharePoint Foundation. As my site is deployed.
I cant use port-80 because other applications are working/running on port-80.
The easiest way to deal with this kind of situation is to use DNS.
Create a DNS entry for SharePoint something like SharePoint.YourCompany.com which points to the IP of the SharePoint web server and then configure that value (SharePoint.YourCompany.com) as the host header for the SharePoint root site collection, all on
port 80. That way the Search Server can find your site on port 80 and SharePoint can co-exists happily with your other web apps on port 80.
