Want to change your MOSS MySite URL?

Recently I had a customer who wanted to change the URL of his MySite Application in MOSS.
He had the MySites running with a non-standard port, for example 1234:
1-port1234

He wanted to change the URL to, let’s say testapp.local.
Here is what you need to do:

1. Extend the MySite Web Application
2-extendwebapp

2. With the extension of a Web Application, you create an additional Alternate Access Mapping entry. You have to edit the entries for the MySite Application:
3-AAM1 4-swap1

3. It should look like this when you swapped the entries:
5-AAM2

4. Make an IISRESET to apply the changes.

6. Now your MySite Link should point to the new URL with Hostheader:
6-result

That’s it!
