I'm doing Web Applications that are always hosted in IIS (from 6 to 7), and I always have problems in deploying.
The applications work most of the time "out-of-the-box" but sometimes it's just terrible.
Last time, installing it on a IIS 7 where Share Point Server was installed I found out that, even SPS is running in a different WebSite, I needed to remove SPS compression. Other time was about application.config had with 32bit application running as it stopped the AppPool on the 2st request (this article helped) .
I wonder... because the web applications always work with no problems in Visual Studio, can't I aggregate Cassini Web Server and deploy my Web Application just like any other windows application?
Cassini or anything else...
What are your thoughts about it and what can I do to stop having so many problems with some installations?
