I got DNN *.*.13 installed and running.
IIS and MS SQL MSDE is installed and running.
I have logged in as Admin and tweaked a few pages, used the Wizards, and so on. So I have a simple little site setup just to test things.
How do I now make this viewable to the world? I have tried numerous things without success.
FWIW, when I run Apache, I have a little "Hello World" page that will come up when I
http://<my IP>, so I know I have connectivity.
When I shut down Apache and fire up IIS and SQL, I get the basic site not ready page from IIS (Home inet\www)
If I try to explicitly go to \myIP\DotNetNuke or set the IIS default directory to \DNN\Portals\0, I get another error of some kind (generally saying page not found or some such).
I could not see anything in the documents. Simply stated, what does one do to publish their working pages for all to see??

I'm having the same problem. Did you find a solution for this?

I think i found a way to fix this.
Login as Host and under portals, edit the current portal and a portal alias as
This makes it accessible from any other computer.
I have another problem now. It takes too long to load the site. I have a comcast cable connection so i dont think that is the problem.

For any alias, you will have to add that into the portal alias list seperated by commas. If your IP changes, you will have to update it.
IIS loads the DLL's into memory for a certain amount of time. If you don't access the site for a while it unloads these DLL's to save room. There were modules in v2.1.2 called keep alive that would help keep things in memory. I don't know if anyone has made
these for 3.1.3. Maybe the source is out there and its an easy conversion. Also with 3.1.3 you can set a global cache for the modules in the host settings. This can help things too. If your site gets enough hits a day, you won't have to worry about this anymore.
