I worked on a DOT.NET web application made to couple of program and had to write 2 new stored procedures. This has been tested in Module Office and ready for production deployment. I am first time deploying such type of application. What should I do next for my deployment plan?
I have already created the deployable file (say xxx.csproj_deploy), under that I have Debug folder and xxx.csproj_deploy.wdproj file. Under Debug folder, I have bin, config, images, obj etc. folders and bunch of *.aspx and *.aspx.resx files.
Here the question, do I need to deploy the whole xxx.csproj_deploy folder or just the Debug folder? Before copying in production, I know I have the take backup of the original website. Whatelse I need to do? I just would like take all kind of precautions I need to. Please try to help. FYI, I am using Visual Studio 2008. Thank you a bunch in advance.
