asp app from vs 2012 to website...

There is a simple application in aps.net (in vs 2012) reading data from a 2008R2 SQL server.  To publish this test site, what steps I should take, if anything other than the following:

1. FTP asp files to the host IIS folder
2. Run SQL Script in the host SQL Server
3. Refresh the connection string
4. Upload data and test the site.

Please advise me with any particular detail I need to be extra careful with.

FYI, I don't have IIS active in my computer. Apparently I should have activated it prior to installation of SQL Server or Visual Studio (I don't remember which). The sequence was important and I wasn't able to have IIS activated.

Thank you.

I think there is a way to add it after the fact.  Are you on windows 7 or 8 for development?

Windows 7.

I just signed up with Godaddy and have access to IIS folder. But it will be nice if I can get IIS active in my laptop as well.

Do I need to use LINQ in my FTP'ed asp files to create the tables I want in host's SQL Server? I suppose I never will have access to their SQL Management Studio to run my SQL scripts to create tables, stored proc, etc?

Thanks,

Mike

It sounds like what you really need is to get things working on your lap top properly instead of a work around.

I would close or delete this question and start a new one on how to get iis and sql server going after you have installed VS.  

I think I found an answer but I am not an expert in that and would hate to get you to do something that could go wrong.  If it were me, I would back up, uninstall VS and reinstall.  But I think there is a better way.

Just start a new question and perhaps use the topics windows7, sql server and sql server 2008.  I know you have 2012 but those same experts will subscribe to the alerts for the other sql topics.

Thank you for the direction. I will do just that. But meanwhile, could you add a feed back to:

I don't know know LINQ.    You don't have to use sql manager studio, I like it because I like the visual.   Once you install everything correctly that should be available.

Hi Mike,
Definitely best to get it running local before pushing.
Use the SQL2008 data migration tool to migrate the db, or alternatively your host may provide an 'Attach from backup' feature. Then ftp to your hosted ftp location all site files, may need to set up new connection based on the username and pwd allocated by your SQL host provider.

You should be able to get IIS running/installed on your Win7 machine.
Installing IIS 7.5 on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate

To create IIS websites on your local machine using VS Express you need to run VSE as administrator, or no can do IIS site creation.

Respectfully yours,
Alan
p.s. Didn't know godaddy support asp .net and sql2008R2 platforms?
