I am using VS2010 on a Windows 7 desktop to develop a client-server application and a Windows Server 2008 R2 server on my office LAN with IIS7 to test the server side ASP code. I have already established FTP configuration between the desktop and server
of the LAN, but when I try to "Publish Web Site" from Visual Studio I get the following error:
Error: Unable to create the Web site 'http://10.0.0.2/testWebsite'. The Web server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed.
I understand that FPSE is being retired, but installed it on the server so that quick publishing would be enabled directly from VS2010. (Note: I did not accomplish the owsadm.exe part of the FPSE install because I could not figure out the syntax for my
particular website. This might explain my problem, I don't know.)
I am comfortable using FTP or another tool to publish the website, but I am not entirely sure which files to copy over to testing or production servers, and for this reason I would prefer that Visual Studio decides which components to deploy.
The website tests fine from Visual Studio when executed from the desktop's localhost instance of IIS, but I have not been able to access it from the server via http from a remote client over the LAN.
Can anyone provide guidance in using owsadm.exe to extend FPSE to my test website, or an alternate technology for ASP.Net test publishing and deployment? Thanks...
