Deploying asp.net application on IIS 7 by a complete beginner
Posted on 2010-09-22
I know I am trespassing on professional’s territory here, where I have no right to be, but I need help in the following:
I am trying, for the first time, to deploy an Asp.net application on a Windows 2008 Server.
I see many articles out there on how to go about doing that, but my question is a simple one (maybe a naïve one too):
if I simply take the Asp.net application from my local machine and place it into the wwwroot directory (inside the inetpub directory of the server’s drive C) wouldn’t this be a workable type of deployment, or do I have to deploy it in some other way?
Please help me arrive at the simplest form of deployment.
