my SP2010 site by defaul goes to: xxx.xx.x.xxx:xxxx/SitePages/Inicio.aspx now i need the main site is: xxx.xx.x.xxx:xxxx/Publico/default.aspx any idea plz?


If Publico is a Document library (or a module you have added) then it's easy.

Using SharePoint Designer

  1. Open the site using SPD
  2. Click All Files (at the bottom of Navigation)
  3. Click your Document library/Module (Publico)
  4. Right click the aspx page you want as default
  5. Select Set as Home Page

Or in PowerShell use:

$w = Get-SPWeb http://xxx.xx.x.xxx:xxxx
$root = $w.RootFolder
$root.WelcomePage = "publico/default.aspx"

But if Publico is a subsite or even separate site collection then you need some more work:

  1. Add a redirect.aspx like this to a document library in the root site:

    <title>Redirect Page</title>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://xxx.xx.x.xxx:xxxx/Publico/default.aspx" />

  2. Use the above method to set the redirect.aspx as WelcomePage for the root site

  • It's working I had the second case. Muchas gracias por la ayuda. – Carlos Mar 16 '12 at 18:56
