Publishing a web application project

Last Modified: 2013-12-14
I am trying to figure out the best way to publish a web application project.  Currently I am developing in C# using Visual Studio 2005.  My server is running IIS 6.0.  All that we are really hosting on the server is one Classic ASP application and now my new .NET application.  Using the publish wizard in VS 2005, I was able to get the web application project onto the server but could only get it to function if I put it at the root of the default web site.  I can see more of these applications being developed in the near future so what I would like to do is have a folder under the root, we'll call it NET_APPS, and then publish the application there.  I tried this already but got the "Theme cannot be found in the application or global theme directories." error and that was a major headache.  Just looking for kind of a general best practice here on publishing.
