Can I define a site collection on the root of a wildcard managed path RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have defined a wildcard managed path name “documents”, and then I created the following site collections under it:-

    ../documents/HRDept
    ../documents/SalesDept
    etc.

    But the problem i am facing is that I can not define a site on the root of the managed path, and if I try to navigate to the following address “http://../documents/” no page will be displayed.

    So if there a way to define a site collection on the root of a wild card managed path ?.

  • Hi john,

    Since the two managed paths cannot have the same name, another workaround is adding a higher level managed path before the "documents".

    Wildcard managed path "xyz/documents" is for creating the department site collection.

    Wildcard managed path "xyz" is for creating the documents site collection.

    Thanks
