Setting up a ASPX on a web server

I am new to ASPX web development and just wanted to know the steps for installing a new web application on a web server.  I have a new aspx program that I am ready to run on the web server.  After I copy over the programs to the web server folder, do I need to register a URL?

You should be able to publish the web site to the server, or publish locally, and copy to the server.  If you publish locally, then you would need to manually create the web site and application pool on the server.

Hi,

First and foremost, what framework is your asp.net, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5?

What server version are you running, server 2003, server 2008, 2008 r2, 2012?

What version of IIS, IIS7, IIS8?

To find out IIS version, try these steps:
