Putting PowerStore 4.5 in the root with an existing site in ASP

Putting PowerStore 4.5 in the root with an existing site in ASP

Hi All,

I have a current website that was made in ASP several years ago and will be putting those products into PowerStore 4.5. Currently the ASP site is in root and I upgraded the server to IIS7 and everything tests out okay on the PHP front for use.

My question is, can I put the PowerStore files into the root while the ASP files are there and get the store built with products or should I make a new directory for the store and put the files there?

I have been reading some of the posts about moving the store once it has been created and that does not seem to be the best thing to do.

even though the site is an asp site, it is possible that some of the supporting CSS or Javascript files may have the same name and could overwrite CSS or Javascript files from your ASP site.

Look carefully at the file structure of the power store files, and the file structure of your site to make sure that power store will not overwrite any of your files before proceeding.

If it does not look like power store will overwrite your existing site files, then it should be fine to install it to the root of your site.

Thanks Jason, I will look into that before I upload files. I would much rather go that route than move it once I'm done.
