VS 2013 test/debug of web site in IIS

I've got an asp.net website, not a project, that I would like to test/debug under VS 2013 in IIS, instead of the local IIS Express that comes with VS.   I've got a separate test version on my LAN under IIS, but it's not set up for debug testing.

I'm pretty sure I used to do this, but I've forgotten how, and I've gone brain dead on locating information on this.  It all seems to be about projects instead of sites.

Any links to guidelines on this would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Yes I did thanks, however I could not translate that into kind of meaningful action, or to tell whether I've done it right or not. Like I said brain-dead. I think if I could look at it from a couple different angles it would help.  I'm hoping to avoid just experimenting with it until I get it right. Plenty of other stuff to work on.

Actually, as usual, asking dumb questions on expert exchange forces me to think harder. So I sketched it out and I remembered that I need to build a link to the IIS instance of the site, on my browser favorites page, and get into IIS that way. And then somehow Visual Studio is going to interact with IIS, and I don't need to know the technology, I just have to understand how to operate the control to make it work. maybe more neurons in the morning.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So, you start Visual Studio, Open the website, attach to IIS, start debug mode then go to your browser and open the URL of the site on IIS, to the start page that you want, and Visual Studio then auto magically starts execution monitoring and control in debug mode of the site code as it operates in IIS.  Is that the general idea?

That one's pretty explicit about what's supposed to happen.
