I have built a website using Visual Web Developer 2008 and I'm trying to publish it to my local machine
I have tried compiling from a command prompt (successfully I think) and copied the compiled files to a folder named inetpub/wwwroot/wow1, but I cannot launch the website using http://localhost/wow1/default.aspx
. I just get a 404 error
I have followed the instructions in the related question, including reinstalling .net framework.
I am sure I am doing something radically wrong, but not sure I understand what I am doing.
I didn't realise I couldn't publish from Visual Web Developer 2008 express until I had built the site.
I am using IIS 7 on Windows Vista SP2 .
If you need any further information, please ask.
This is really urgent as I have built this website and need to get it deployed, hence the 500 points on offer.
