I used WebMatrix to deploy a Wordpress website and it works just fine if I launch it from WebMatrix. However if I shut WebMatrix down and try to open the website in I.E using the complete URL on the local machine I get a "page not found error". If I launch
WebMatrix and click on the site and then return to I.E. the site opens just fine.
I have looked and cannot find a setting in WebMatrix or within the Wordpress site to tell it to load and be available even if WebMatrix is not running.
Is this something which needs to be configured in IIS?
Thanks in advance,

As far as I know, WebMatrix hosts the app on IIS Express
If you close WebMatrix, IIS Express is not running, so you could not access to web site if you enter the url in IE.
