FAQ: How to Move PortalGuard Web Site folder to a Different Location

Requirement:

Move the “inetpub\PortalGuard” Web Site folder to somewhere other than the default C Drive location.

 

Reason:

C Drives are not always formatted to be very large or there may be a drive that is always backed up and this is the more ideal place for the “inetpub\PortalGuard” Web Site folder to be stored.

 

Solution:

    2. Create a new “inetpub” folder at the new location – for our example we will use D:
    3. Move the PortalGuard folder from C:\inetpub to D:\inetpub.
    4. From within the IIS Manager, update advanced settings on the PortalGuard web site to have “D” in the path instead of “C”:

a.Right click the PortalGuard web site from the IIS Manager, choose “Manage Web Site” and then “Advanced Settings…”
