First, thank you for your time.
For testing purposes, within IIS I have created a local website called TestPublishing. After configuring this new site, with what I think are correct settings, I tested the site. I created an index.html file and placed it into the virtual directory. The contents of the index.html file is:
I then went to the browser and typed in this url:
And sure enough my index.html file is loaded and served up and Test Publishing
is shown. Yay!
Then, from Visual Studio when I publish an application to this url I get the following error:
It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.
What do I need to give to you, in order for you to help me solve this (the steps I took to configure the site, the folder hierarchy, etc)?
Again, thank you for your time,
