I have written a WCF service which runs successfully on a development server. I then decided to move this over to our company’s Test 2012R2 server. To do this I followed these steps:
1. On development server I published a Web deployment Package, configuration release
This created a packaging folder with a zipped folder and a .deploy, .parameters and a .sourceManifest.
2. I Copied this folder over to the Test 2012R2 server and in IIS 8.5 created a new website which I right clicked and selected Deploy & Import Application and selected the zipped folder. After doing the website was placed into wwwroot on test server.
3. In IIS I can now right click the website, switch to feature view and Browse and the initial Logon Page is displayed. But when I enter http://localhost/Account/Login.aspx
to try to log on, the system just hangs. If I was back in the development server I could debug the code to find out where the issue is. However with the deployed package I have no source to debug. So how can I troubleshoot ?
What is the best way for me to find out what is happening to this application on the test server. I am relatively new to this area so please give as much detail as possible in your comments.
