SUMMARY

This step-by-step article describes how to use the Site Editor utility (Editsite.exe) to create multiple Microsoft Project Web Access Web sites for Microsoft Project Server 2002.

Use the Site Editor utility to configure Microsoft Project Server for multiple Web sites. By doing so, you can connect to one or more Microsoft Project Web Access Web sites on the same server. This environment is ideal for administrators who want to use different Microsoft Project Web Access Web sites for different groups of users.

How to Use the Site Editor Utility to Create Multiple Microsoft Project Access Web Sites for Microsoft Project Server

  1. Download the Site Editor utility (Editsite.exe). To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=123a740b-9512-4a21-89fb-5a20819c20c7&DisplayLang=en
  2. Before you use Editsite.exe to create a new virtual directory (site) for Microsoft Project Server, you have to first determine the passwords for the MSProjectServer and MSProjectUser user accounts. The passwords for MSProjectServerUser and MSProjectUser are located in the following key in the Windows registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\MS Project\WebClient Server
    To locate the password for MSProjectServerUser and MSProjectUser, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
    3. Locate and then select the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\MS Project\WebClient Server
    4. To locate the password for MSProjectServerUser, double-click PSPassword in the right pane of the Registry Editor window.
    5. Make a note of the password that is displayed in the Value data box.
    6. To locate the password for MSProjectUser, double-click PrjPassword in the right pane of the Registry Editor window.
    7. Make a note of the password that is displayed in the Value data box.
    8. Click Cancel, and then quit Registry Editor.
  3. Start Windows Explorer, navigate to the location on your hard disk to which you downloaded Editsite.exe, and then double-click Editsite.exe.
  4. Under Virtual Directory, click Add.
  5. In the Create a new site dialog box, type a name for the new virtual directory in the Site Name box. For example, type ProjectServer2.
  6. In the Project Server directory box, verify that the path to the Microsoft Project Server folder on your hard disk is correct.
  7. In the Web Site to use box, select the Web site that you want to use (for example Default Web Site), and then click Create.

    The new virtual directory is displayed in the Virtual Directory list.
  8. In the Virtual Directory list, click the new virtual directory that you created in step 7.
  9. Under Site Information, type PC10DSN in the DSN Name box.
  10. Under Database Information, type the name of your SQL Server and Microsoft Project Server database in the SQL Server and Database boxes.
  11. Under Project Server User, type MSProjectServerUser in the Username box.
  12. Type the password that you located in step 2 for MSProjectServerUser in the Password box.
  13. Under Project User, type MSProjectUser in the Username box.
  14. Type the password that you located in step 2 for MSProjectUser in the Password box.
  15. Click Save, and then quit the Site Editor utility.
NOTES:
  • You can also create multiple Microsoft Project Server databases on the same Microsoft SQL Server 2000 computer if you create a new database, and then restore a backup copy of your Microsoft Project Server database to the new database.
  • Additionally, you can manually set up the Microsoft Project Server database, tables, and SQL Server user accounts. For more information about how to do this, see the "Advanced Tasks" section of the Microsoft Project Server Installation Guide.

    The Microsoft Project Server Installation Guide (Pjsvr10.chm) is located in the Docs folder on the Microsoft Project Server CD-ROM and in the Program Files\Microsoft Project Server\Help\1033 folder on your hard disk (in a default installation of Microsoft Project Server).

Connect to the New Microsoft Project Web Access Web Site

Start your browser, and then connect to the Microsoft Project Web Access Web site that you created.

For example, use the following the Uniform Resource Locator (URL), where ServerName is the name of the server, and VirtualDirectoryName is the name of the new virtual directory that you created:
http://ServerName/VirtualDirectoryName
