I have deployed the DXA in IIS. I have a website configured as like this IIS--MyDomain--MySite-1. So, say for eg: https://jey.com/mystagingsite is the site developed and deployed by DXA.

Now, I have configured the cd_dynamic and cd_link config file as below.

 <Host Domain="jey.com/mystagingsite/" Port="443" Protocol="https" Path="/" />

When I hit the version.json, am getting error as below

No matching Localization found for URL 'https://jey.com/mystagingsite/version.json'

"MyStagingSite" is the virtual directory and converted as a application too with 443 port.

If i publish and point the DXA to "https://jey.com" it works fine. So, how to point the site to the virtual directory?

Update: Please note that adding the staging and active website needs to be served from the same URL but with different context like https://jey.com/mystagingwebsite and https://jey.com/mywebsite. So adding the publication path and adding path to DXA configuration may not work in our scenario.

We also noticed the the application is trying to resolve to jey.com/mystagingwebsite:443 during resolution. Any suggestions are appreciated.

  • Be sure the Publication ID matches, the Domain attribute doesn't have a path, and the Path has the correct path ("/mysite" in this case). Alternatively you could try changing the Publication path in the Publication properties, but it's probably best to leave that alone for future upgrades. Commented Oct 14, 2016 at 22:33
  • Hi Reyes - Please check the updated question. Publication ID is perfect. Because of my existing IIS site setup, i need to add the Virtual Directory name in the domain. Also i need to add some extra in the publication property. But if i add the virtual directory in the domain, DXA excluding the virutal directory in the URL domain property. So, am getting the No matching URL found exception.

  • As far as I know, domains do not have paths. Try instead: <Host Domain="jey.com" Port="443" Protocol="https" Path="/mystagingsite" />. Otherwise also add the version of Tridion you're working with for help from others. Commented Oct 15, 2016 at 2:26
  • am using Tridion 2013 SP1. If i add "mystagingsite" in path. DXA looking file path in Broke DB as /mystagingsite/version.json. But in DB, it is actually it will be /version.json.

What you want is not possible in 2013 SP1 in general; it is only possible with SDL Web 8 Topology Manager (using so-called context-relative URLs in CM).
