I want to create a web application tied to a domain name within my server. Following are the steps I followed:
- Modified the server host file for www.xyz.com to resolve to localhost
- I am able to ping www.xyz.com which does resolve to localhost
- Create a web applicaiton with host header www.xyz.com
- Created a site collection
But I can't login to that site for reason. When I visit http://www.xyz.com through the browser, I get prompted for credentials but it doesnt accept my credentials even though I assigned myself as the site collection admin. Did I miss step above? With 2007, I followed the same steps and it works.
Any help will be appreciated.
