How to load the same web service to several site at the same time?

Posted on 2007-10-03

I have a simple C#.NET web service that I'd like to run in several places at the same time.  And I'd like to update them at the same time.  Is this possible?  Can this be done from Visual Studio 2005?  Can I use FTP to send particular files?  Which files?

How do I update a running site?  Must I halt the service (how do I do that?) before uploading the new version?

    Visual Studio lets us publish a web service but it let's us publish it only one at a time. I am not sure to your business what is the factor of tolerance in terms of all these web services staying insync.

    How many instances of the web services are you looking to sync?

    just a few, but I thought it would be kinda cool for them to be syncronized.  But I guess it's really no big deal.


    P.S. I wonder if I could FTP certain files to multiple websites?  What file types would need to be updated to upgrade a web service to a new version?

    Accepted Solution

    All the DLL's, web.config , the asmx file and any other app speific images/ xml's that you might have. There is no need to copy the CS Files or proj files.
