If it is a website, you can right click on the top level and select convert to web application.

What I am doing is not modifying my web sites but, instead, making a new web app that will host my services and publish it up.  Then will will be able to reference that site for my data needs.

I would like to publish the web site in a local IIS , not in a web hoster

From what I have read, this works only on IIS7. Is this your case? You also have to publish to a web application, not a website.  So, instead of digevcelegal.com, it would be the name of the website/appname.  For example: "Default Web Site/MyWebApp"  The url must be http://localhost/MsDeploy.axd and the Web Management service must be running on the IIS server.  You must also have permissions for the site set for your login name to be able to publish. Your WebApp must be set to the same .NET version you developed with.

Correct me if I am wrong about IIS7 only because, I am trying to deploy a web service to a Windows Server 2003 IIS6 box and it just won't go.

Oh, wow I just found my answer for deploying to IIS6 w/ VS 2010.  Since you did not say what version you had, I will post this here for you just in case.

Hi Anders,
Yes IIS6 can also support one click publish, you will have to set up remote agent for that...
Please follow the below steps for completing the remote agent install

1. Download the Web Deploy from http://www.iis.net/. (It actually comes installed with VS 2010 but you may not have it on the server)
2. Run the MSI file to install the tool.
3. Select a Custom installation to choose what to install.
4. Click on the remote service node to install the remote service.
5. Complete the installation.
6. Manually start the service by running the following command:
net start msdepsvc
7. Ensure that port 80 is open in the firewall.
Hope this helps...

hi cefranklin:

Maybe most of my problems were that Im didnt know the difference between A web Application and a Web Site , correct me if Im wrong , a web Application is a project that must be "appended" to an existing web site, meanwhile a website is a completely new project, my mistake was have starter a project without know the difference, as long as my real intention was begin a new web site from scratch.
