I have person's  website on a server.  The website runs fine on the server..we remoted to it and ran it on the server.



They  want to push their site up to my server.  They have VS 2008.  When they click BUILD > PUBLISH>  Site: http://www.mysite.com....They get a prompt to enter a user name and password.   This is to access the server.  

Do I need to create a user account for this person.  I dont want them to have system wide access.  Only access to their website to remote publish.

What would be next steps?

Yes, you would need to create an account for them that has the ability to FTP.  If they already have FTP access, they can use that username and password.  Otherwise, you will need to setup FTP publishing services for the site.

Here is a link that might help: Setting up FTP Publishing on Sever 2008

They can publish the site in their local and upload the updates to the server location using the FTP Access.

As per ccbbc_cs ., Create a FTP Account for the user and provide them a FTP username and password.Using this they can upload a file to the server.

And also Provide access to the Folder where Site is pointed in IIS.

Apparently I did this wrong and appeared to come across as impatient.  Not my intent.  So, here we go again.


If you have trouble with the suggestions, I'll be glad to help you further.  Just let me know how it goes.
