Make sure you have .net framework version 4.0 installed on your server.

Below is step by step approach I use for compiling and publishing.

Behind the scenes, Visual Studio's Publish Web Site dialog box invokes the ASP.NET compilation tool (aspnet_compiler.exe) to precompile the website. Alternatively, you can invoke this tool from the command line. In fact, if you use Visual Web Developer then you will need to run the compiler tool from the command line, as Visual Web Developer's Build menu does not include the Publish Web Site option.
To use the compiler tool from the command line, start by dropping to the command line and navigating to the framework directory, %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727. Next, enter the following statement into the command line:
Step 1: Copy this ¿ cd C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319 to command line
Step 2: Copy this and change physical path and location folder:
aspnet_compiler -p "physical_path_to_app" -v / -f -u "target_location_folder"
for project hope, use:
aspnet_compiler -p "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ph_actual" -v / -f -u "c:\hope"
The above command launches the ASP.NET compiler tool (aspnet_compiler.exe) and, via the -p switch, instructs it to precompile the website rooted at physical_path_to_app; this value will be something like C:\MySites\BookReviews, and should be delimited by quotation marks.
The -v switch specifies the virtual directory of the site. If your site is registered as the default website in the IIS metabase then you can omit the -p switch and just specify the virtual directory of the application. If you use the -p switch, the value proceeding the -v switch indicates the root of the website, and is used to resolve application-root references. For instance, if you specify a value of -v /MySite then references in the application to ~/path/file will be resolved as ~/MySite/path/file. Because the Book Reviews site is located at the root directory at my web hosting company I have used the switch -v /.
The -f switch, if present, instructs the compilation tool to overwrite the target_location_folder directory if it already exists. If you omit the -f switch and the target location folder already exists, the compilation tool will quit with the error: "error ASPRUNTIME: The target directory is not empty. Please delete it manually or choose a different target."
The -u switch, if present, informs the tool to create an updatable user interface. Omit this switch to precompile the site with a non-updatable user interface.
Lastly, the target_location_folder is the physical path to the target location directory; this value will be something like C:\MySites\Output\BookReviews, and should be delimited by quotation marks.
