Move project to remote server

My net connection doesn't allow me to use visual studio to directly create my project on my colocated server (Win Serv. 2003). So I'm developing/testing locally and now need to upload the project to the remote server.

So far, I've found one document that talks about moving a project but it assumes I have vs on both machine. While I have the 1.1 framework installed (and a couple basic .aspx pages) already running on the remote box I shouldn't have to install Visual Studio there...I just want to upload whatever it takes to serve my new pages from there.

Where's the recipe?

thankx

Juststeve,

Just move *.aspx, web.config,global.asax, and the bin directory to the remote server. You will need just the mentioned files in making your asp.net up and running.

Best, Nauman.

Hi nauman_ahmed,

also you have to create your directory as virtual directory in the IIS ( open IIS console, right click on your directory's name and choose Properties and there in Directory tab click on Create button

You can deploy an ASP.NET Web application using one of the following three deployment options.

- XCOPY Deployment
- Using the Copy Project option in VS .NET
- Deployment using VS.NET installer

To read more about each option: http://www.15seconds.com/issue/030806.htm

Although, moving files (the way previously suggested) through FTP will stay easier. You can use tools like:
