Support for Host Named Site Collections (deployment to a single web application)

Dec 5, 2012 at 10:47 PM

Microsoft is now strongly recommending using Host Named Site Collections instead of Path Based Site Collections. Do you have any plans to update AutoSPInstaller to support a single web application architecture that utilizes host named site collections?

Yes, as you probably discovered this enhancement was added recently to AutoSPInstaller.

Hi Brian

Is there an example xml file for this configuration? Looking at the comments in the previous autoinstaller.xml the script expects at least two web applications (portal and MySiteHost) - presumably this has now changed?

Yes, you can comment out the MySiteHost web app section entirely and just go with HNSC for the MySite Host and any other site collections under the Portal web app.
