hosting two different sites with different master pages on the same server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a sharepoint site with a customized master page and template (wkpstd.aspx) i would like to move it to be hosted on the same server as another different site.

    Is it possible to host these different sites on the same server (they have different master page and wkpstd.aspx)? it would be great if you could give some information on how to move the site to be hosted on the same server as another existing one and how to apply to it its customized master page and wkpstd.aspx (different from the existing site)?

    thank you

  • Hi SharePoint user

    From your description I understood that the server remains same and there are two different sites / web portal on which you want to deploy different master pages, right.

    If yes then you can use different master pages on two different sites on same SharePoint server.

    Please refer following articles to get an idea how to deploy master pages on SharePoint sites.
