Deploying ASP.net 2.0 in release mode

Greetings, I'm getting ready to deploy my asp.net 2.0 web application to a prodution server.  all the tutorials I've been looking at talk about changing the "Build Mode" to "releas" instead of Debug.  for some reason, I don't have a "release" option in my drop down menue of build modes.  I only have a debug option. Any idea what I need to do to set my build mode ot release?  Thanks.

Hi Chaffe,

I think that it is enough to publish your web site by using Build ->Publish your web project

Cheers!

In your web.config, to release a version of your application, ensure the compilation tage has the debug set to false.

Here's what I use for deployment;

<compilation debug="false" strict="false" explicit="true">

The MS comment in the web.config states:

            Set compilation debug="true" to insert debugging
            symbols into the compiled page. Because this
            affects performance, set this value to true only
            during development.

badalpatel, the thing about this option is that it doesn't give me the choice to exclude any files that I don't want to upload.   that's why I was leaning more toward the option under "WebSite > Copy web site."  any thoughts?

Do these files change or are the ones you don't want to upload a specific file type? For example, when I publish my site, I don't want *.doc files to be published as I use these for documentation.

So within my compilation tags I put:

            <compilation debug="false" strict="false" explicit="true">
                  <buildProviders>
                        <add extension=".doc" type="System.Web.Compilation.IgnoreFileBuildProvider"/>
                        <add extension=".vsd" type="System.Web.Compilation.IgnoreFileBuildProvider"/>
                  </buildProviders>
                                </compilation>

sandip132, Thanks for the link.

thefritterfatboy, say I want to exclude a whole directory (and its content) from being published.  how do I go about setting that in my web.config?  Thanks.

Not sure if you can. I know if you add the "hidden" attribute to a folder it won't publish but not sure you can exclude a folder from compilation any other way. I'll let you know if I find it.
