How to create a virtual directory in IIS using Windows 7
What is a Virtual Directory ?
A virtual directory represents a web application and it points to a physical folder in your computer.
How to create it in IIS on Windows 7 ?
In IIS (Internet Information Services Manager), as shown in the screenshot below, right click on a website under which you want to create a virtual directory. In this example “DemoSite” is the website under which I will be creating my virtual folder.
This can be done by right clicking it and selecting the “Add Virtual Directory” option.
Next you will get a window like the one below in the screenshot, where you will have to enter an “Alias” name for the virtual directory and also provide a Physical Path to it.
Click Ok and your virtual path is ready to use.
