Archiving Web Application or WebSite  sourcecode

When archiving your source code for a Web application or Website , in regards to .sln and .proj files, I would assume you would archive the .csproj file and not the .sln file. Because I assume the .sln  content could be pointing to a different folder than where you downloaded your source for your development environment. Of course, the Website does not have a .csproj file.
Am I correct?

If all your source code in included under the same directory structure, simply archive the directory. The .sln references files with a relative path whenever possible, so if they are all under the same directory, moving it somewhere else will make no difference.

I agree. I did notice in creating a website (not a web application) that it seems that you have to go  to the Visual Studio Tools - Options-  Projects and Solutions to set  where the .sln file will be created. The Project Location textbox  sets where the .sln will be located but not the website files.  Website  files (.aspx, .cs, etc) they 're placed in the folder you designated in the Name text box of your New Website dialog.
