I am doing testing on a windows 2008 server with a few DNN portals.
I have a local site called: http://instantbi-webhosting613dev.com
I can get to it ok.
Inside this portal I have http://mensbusinessassociation613.com. I have defined the alias for the portal fine.
When I try to find this via google it does not find it.
When I go to the IIS server and try and access this from sites, manage sites, browse site I get the following message.
Domain Name Does Not Exist In The Database
DotNetNuke supports multiple portals from a single database/codebase. It accomplishes this by converting the URL of the client browser Request to a valid PortalID in the Portals database table. The following steps describe the process:
Web Server Processing
When a web server receives a Request from a client browser, it compares the file name extension on the target URL resource to its Application Extension Mappings defined in IIS.
Based on the corresponding match, IIS then sends the Request to the defined Executable Path ( aspnet_asapi.dll in the case of ASP.NET Requests ).
The aspnet_isapi.dll engine processes the Request in an ordered series of events beginning with Application_BeginRequest.
I can not for the life of me see why it is not getting to this alias. If you click on
You will see that the site on the web has it's aliases defined properly.
What I have done on the local host is to define mensbusinessassociation613.com as an alias and then also set it up as a web site in the IIS server. I set dot net version to 4.0 and so it starts...it just can not see the alias to get going as presented by the message.
Can anyone please point me to where I might need to look to figure out how to get at alias hosted portals on my local server? I am at a bit of a loss on this one.
PS. I do have mensbusinessassociation613.com in the host name in the bindings.
Thanks in Advance
I amd using IIS7, DNN 6.13, window 2008.
