I recently set up a new virtual dedicated server using Windows Server 2008 Standard edition. I have a basic question. I would like to upload a DLL file to a secure location on server. I would like this file saved above the root folder to prevent the ability to download or access file.
1. Can you please tell me where to create a bin folder for dll files? Would something like this be recommended?
Bin folder created here:c:\inetpub\wwwroot\bin\
Website Directory created here: c:\inetpub\wwwroot\website1\
2. Once i create the folder and upload the file, are there any special instructions that i need to know to access that dll in my asp.net web page? For example, do i need to register it in any config files? Or anywhere in IIS manager on web server? Or does IIS asp.net framework detect dll files automatically?
I hope my questions are clear. Simply put, I would like a primer on how / where to save DLL files and get them working in my asp.net web pages.
