I change my web.config...i change VB code behind files...nothing is causing it to recompile.  All the old DLL's are still in the BIN folder.   I am opening a website directly on a server in Visual Studio 2010 and making changes, saving them straight to the server, but nothing is recompiling.

What do I need to do to cause my website to recompile?

IIS7, Window server 2008

You need to build and publish the updated solution to your server's virtual directory.

1. Try to delete all temporary files from folder C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files. Sometimes these files not gets updated and then try to access your website. This will ensure that fresh files are created there.

No need to worry for deleting those files as they would be recreated by asp.net when request arrives for page.

2. Try to reset iis. (https://support.gearhost.com/KB/a191/how-to-reset-iis-with-the-iis-reset-command.aspx)

Perform IISReset as well.
