Moving FogBUGZ to other site

I would like to move fogBUGZ to another IIS site within the same server. I have created the virtual directory in the destination site with the same settings, but I keep getting "The FogBUGZ database is down or could not be found" errors. I can access FogBUGZ from the location where the installer put it, but would like to move it to "under" our intranet, like this:

from http://servername.domain.local/fogbugz/ (default web site, working)
to http://intranet.domain.local/fogbugz/ (not working)

You probably have to set all the settings the same... for instance, go to the directory security tab and click on anonymous access edit, then hit edit again.  You should see the FogBUGZ user and password there.  If you don't you'll need to set it.

Also you should set the customer error for 500/100 errors to the url /fogbugz/internalerror.asp

I think that should take care of it.

Setting the anonymous access account did fix it. Now I get the chance to log in, select the user I would like to log in to and press "log on". And get back the standard default screen with still logged off.

There was an IE6 bug that caused this behavior (along with not being able to log into HotMail or MSN). If you have IE6, make sure you have latest patches.
