Installation Guide

Choosing the Installation Type (Web App)

There are two options of installing the Web App which define how technicians will access the web application:

  • Installing as a web site — This configuration gives you the advantage of having a "nice" URL for accessing the Web App such as "" (or "" if you have a web site with a third-level domain name).

  • Installing into a virtual directory — In this configuration, your URL for accessing the Web App will include the virtual directory name (such as "").

By default, all Alloy Navigator web applications are deployed to "Alloy Navigator Site," a dedicated website on your IIS web server, on a custom port 81. However, you can decide to deploy the applications to the default website in IIS or create a new IIS website with settings that are specific to the requirements of your organization. To meet industry standard security requirements, you could consider switching over to HTTPS.

INFO: For instructions on how to configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for a site, see Microsoft: How to enable SSL for all customers who interact with your Web site in IIS.
