    I'm running Plesk 9.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5. I have two sites on this server configured through Plesk to the default physical path (C:\inetpub\vhosts\[domain]). I'm now trying to deploy some open-source software that requires a virtual directory configured as an application at (let's say) C:\Software\WebRoot.

    I tried creating a site directly in IIS with a Physical Path of C:\Software\WebRoot, but browsing to http://localhost/SiteName still looks for the site files in C:\inetpub\vhosts\default\htdocs\SiteName. I know I could change the Virtual Hosts location, but that would (I believe) break my existing sites, which I don't want to do.

    How do I go about configuring a single site to use C:\Software\Webroot instead of the default path? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Did you try to change vhost location with Plesk reconfigurator?
