I'm publishing my first ASP.NET website to a shared hosting environment. (GoDaddy) I have been testing it using my local machine, and everything works fine.

When i published the site using the "Publish Web Site" tool, the site returns an error for any pages that are in the root directory.  Files that are located in folders work fine.  The error isn't specific, but when i removed the check for "Allow this precompiled site to be updateable" the site works fine.

This is good, but if anyone wants to make changes to a file on the server, they can not.  All the files show up with a text message: "This is a marker file generated by the precompilation tool, and should not be deleted"

Is there some web.config setting i need to change to enable the site to be published to a root directory?  I can't seem to find anything on this.

Thanks for your help!
