To do this, you need to define managed paths using inclusions/exclusions. What you use really depends on what you need.

To remove one folder (e.g., PHP) from your SharePoint web so that files may be executed normally:

  1. Log into "HostPilot Control Panel > Web/FTP Server > Web Server > Website Tools > SharePoint Services > Install/Uninstall > Define managed paths".
  2. Under "Excluded paths" type in the folder name (e.g., "PHP") and press "Add."

To remove SharePoint from the root folder and install it on subfolders:

  1. Log into "HostPilot Control Panel > Web/FTP Server > Web Server > Website Tools > SharePoint Services > Install/Uninstall > Define managed paths".
  2. Under "Included paths" type in the name of the directory you want SharePoint installed in, select "Explicit Inclusion" and press "Add."
  3. PLEASE NOTE:If you have already deployed active content to your SharePoint site, make sure you have a backup of your data before removing SharePoint from the root directory. Once it has been removed, the data will be lost.
    Press "Remove" across from (root).
  4. Go to "HostPilot Control Panel > Web/FTP Server > Web Server > Website Tools > SharePoint Services > Install/Uninstall > Create top-level Web site".
  5. Select "Create site at this URL".
  6. Select your folder from the drop-down list.
  7. Type in an e-mail address, and press "Create Site".
  8. After a few minutes, a page will come up with your URL. Click on the URL.
  9. Select a template from the list and press "OK".
  10. Thereafter, you will be able to view your SharePoint site at http://www.yourdomain.name/subfolder.
PLEASE NOTE:
  • Once you remove SharePoint extensions from the (root) folder, you will not be able to use the management interface in "HostPilot Control Panel > Web/FTP Server > Web Server > Website Tools > SharePoint Services > Manage". You will need to manage extensions by going to the SharePoint site and clicking on "Site Settings."
  • Once you remove SharePoint extensions from a folder, you will not be able to use FrontPage 2003 to publish to that folder.
