What's the recommended way to manage an ASP.NET web application, running under IIS 7 (on Windows Server 2008 R2)?
By "manage", I mean (at least):
- Stop a web application,
- Fetch (update to) the latest SVN revision,
- Start the web application again.
I am not sure if I should go for a full remote desktop connection for this (if that is even appropriate for a server machine), or there is a simpler and safer way to do this limited set of actions.
If remote desktop is the only/preferred way to do it, I would appreciate at least a link to some safety considerations.
