I have a SharePoint 2007 site running under 64 bit Windows 2008 R2. The sharepoint works fine. I can even open the libraries as web folders (webdav) without any issues. I have created a virtual directory in IIS that points to a directory
on the server. Whenever I try to open the virtual directory (https://my.server.com/dir) as a webfolder, I get the SharePoint home web folder instead (https://my.server.com).
I have been able to open subordinate SharePoint web folders without any issues (https://my.server.com/MPD/Shared%20Documents). It appears that SharePoint is intercepting my request for
https://my.server.com/dir. According to documentation, SharePoint should ignore any non-SP directories in IIS. In previous versions we could exclude specific directories from being SharePoint managed, but
not in 2007 or later.
I have followed all of the directions to configure the virtual directory in IIS to use WebDAV.
This is the code I use for the page to open the virtual directory.
