By default, Squared Up is installed into the IIS 'Default Web Site'.

Squared Up can be installed to an alternative website using a command line option.


To install to a website other than the 'Default Web Site', run the setup application from the command line as follows: 

SquaredUpInstaller-2.X.exe --prop.websitename:<website name>


For example: 

SquaredUpInstaller-2.1.exe --prop.websitename:"My Custom Web Site"

 Squared Up will create a new virtual directory (named 'SquaredUp' by default) under the website specified.

1. The website name is case-sensitive.

2. The install location is set independently from the website. By default, Squared Up will installed to the IIS root directory (typically C:\inetpub\wwwroot). We recommend that you set the install location to a path corresponding to the custom website root.

For example:
SquaredUpInstaller-2.1.exe --prop.websitename:"My Custom Web Site" --prop.installroot:C:\inetpub\mycustomwebsiteroot
