Visual Studio Deployment

Posted on 2010-08-26

Last Modified: 2013-11-27
I'm developing an asp.net app on my laptop and FTP'ing the files up to my production server.  Can I skip this step and have Visual Studio build right to my remote server?  (I have full access to the Windows Server 2008 R2)

If so, are there any reasons why I may not want to do this?  Thanks,

Justin

I have tried that and moved some configurations but it didnt worked, the problem is that VS uses a webserver configured for Debuggin and my production server does not have that configurations.

I had not went too far on making my Production server compatible, as I want it to BE a production server, and enabling the debugging may interfer with my other websites

Now that i remember more... VS uses localhost by default, and cannot publish to other machine or host, there is no place to configure this

@JT_SIRO what version of VS are you using.
In VS2008 you can use the VS development server your localhost or a custom web server (you enter the url for this).
The custom web server would be your remote server.

I'm using VS 2008.  I'll have to try the custom web server set up.  I have a test instance of my application, so I'd just point it there, then migrate to Prod from within the same server.  That sounds like a good approach, doesn't it?

Is your laptop in the same domain?
