What is easiest no fail way to publish asp.net app?
Sorry a bit of an open ended question but I am having issues deploying an asp.net report project and any solution to get the site up is fine.
I am running Win7/SQL 2008 and want to publish a asp.net report site that I created in VS 2008. Website launches when I run in debug in Visual studio but I want to publish the site so that it can be seen on the LAN.
I published the files off to a folder and started up the IIS manager and added a new site and pointed to that folder. Set the permission on the folder to share to everyone.
However when I go to the DNS name I put in for the website it does not launch. Any ideas on this?
I see websites out there talking about a web sharing tab on the folder properties but I do not see that when I go to folders. Why might that be?
Another avenue I have not pursued yet is publishing directly to a website. Has anyone tried that? Is that better or worse than publishing to filesystem?
