I'm using MS Web Deploy 3.5 on my Windows Server 2008 r2 box running iis 7.0 to create a package of an existing website using the following command in a batch file:
C:\Progra~1\IIS\Micros~1\msdeploy.exe -verb:sync -enableLink:AppPoolExtension -source:apphostconfig="mywebsite.com.au" -dest:package=c:\mywebsite.com.au.zip
and after copying that to a location on my Windows Server 2012 r2 box running iis 8.5, I use the following command to import it:
C:\Progra~1\IIS\Micros~1\msdeploy.exe -verb:sync -enableLink:AppPoolExtension -source:package=c:\Shared\mywebsite.com.au.zip -dest:apphostconfig="mywebsite.com.au" > msdeploysync-mywebsite.com.au.log
It shows no error and all of the files now appear in the correct location in c:\inetpub, but nothing appears in IIS's website or application pool list...
Can someone please help determine what is going wrong here?
