I need to allow my website to recompile at run time if I change the code on my code behind pages. I run .net 2.0 and I have two projects in my solution. I did setup a table where I store some site variables and I need to recompile in VS to apply the changed values. I heard if I change my web.config file the site should recompile but it doesn't, and it wouldn't help me with my code behind pages either.
I do know, run time compile is possible but I need you experts to show me the way it gets done.
Thank you in advance for your help and time.

This is surely because you have a "Web Application" instead of a "Web Site". An application is compiled and only requires DLLs and .aspx/.ascx to run. In a Web Site, you copy all your files (.aspx, .cs, ...) and it will be compiled on the server.

when you change the web.config the site is not recompiled just all the sessions are reset and the users have to log in again.
to recompile the website you need to do it manually

for that look at the following link from MSDN

So my understanding from your post is that there is no way to precompile a website (application) and still able to JIT at runtime.  
Could I start in VS with a "Blank Solution".
Add  a "Web Site".
Add my my existing projects to the solution.
Add the project references to "Web Site".
Move only my Web Site to the web server with precompiled ".aspx" pointers.
Would that allow me to take advatage of JIT.

No, you have to create a new project using the Web Site template and move all your forms/classes, ... to this new project

there is another solution anyhow
if you publish your website on your build machine and make an individual assembly for each webpage then if you change your code behind you can publish it agian and then just paste you aspx file and the corresponding page assembly from the bin folder and update your website pages and assemblies

this allows you to do partial updates
