Trouble with publishing project to server...

Hi there.

I started working on a new VB.NET project. It's my first real attempt to make a .NET project. I used classic asp in the past, and all those files is tricking me. This is the case:
At my hosting company I have some old projects stored. In the www-folder (the root of my webserver) I have subfolders with projects, and this new .NET has got a folder too.
Now when I try to publish my very first page, I get an error message with compiling.
When I publish my project, the web.config ends up in the project-folder. Not in the www.root. So I moved it manually to the root on the server, but I have the feeling that it's not the right thing to do.
Can anyone please guide me how to do the publishing correct? Let me know if you need more info.

Best regards

Ulrich

Commented:
if its in the sub folder of the root folder. I would suggest create Virtual directory for your application.
The problem was that the bin-folder didn't end up in the root. I configured the ftp-upload wrong. It works now. :-)
