Host Maps and Apps Gallery on your Web Server

Maps and Apps Gallery can optionally be hosted on a Microsoft Internet Information Service (IIS) web server.

To host Maps and Apps Gallery on your web server, complete the following steps:

  1. Download and unzip the Maps and Apps Gallery application files.
  2. Copy the contents to your web server so they can be accessed as a website or virtual directory. In Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), the default web server directory is <your directory>\Inetpub\wwwroot\.
  3. Browse to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  4. Right-click the web server directory folder for the application and choose Convert to Application.
  5. Choose the ASP.NET v4.0 or ASP.NET v4.5 application pool and click OK.
  6. Type the URL http://<yourServer>/<yourSite>/index.html into your Internet browser with the appropriate substitutions. This will open a fully-configured version of Maps and Apps Gallery and will confirm that the application is properly set up on the web server.
  7. Review the configuration options that are available when hosting this application locally.
