ASP.NET 2.0 web application linked to Live webserver
Posted on 2013-12-09
I had to make changes to a project build using Visual Studio 2003. It was hosted on a Live webserver from where I copied it. I pasted it on my local machine on the same network. I had to put in under C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myproject to get it to open. I checked the path on the references and they pointed to the Live webserver \\Livewebserver\wwwroot$\myproject. I ignored it.
When I compiled the project on my machine, the dlls got updated in the \bin on Live webserver. The dlls on my machine at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myproject\bin remained the same. Gladly I did not make any change!
What is happening here? I don't want the Live dlls to effect when I compile on my local machine. How can I create version independent of Live webserver to use for development purpose. Please advise.
