I've made a website using aps.net v2012 , i cant piblish the website to the host target because "The Web server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed. "
Is there any other way to deploy the website without source code ?
Thank you in advance

create a local website in IIS on your computer and then FTP (Filezilla is my recommended client) the files to your remote server that are in the locally published folder. You'll need to update your web.config to match the new environment.
You can also manually pick off files, taking just the web.config/aspx/ascx/master files, bin directory DLLs, images, css, js etc, but not deploying vb or cs code behind files, and transmit over FTP to your hosting account.

if the solution has been built already, you don't have to have the source files to deploy, you only need the source files if you are planning to change things or take advantage of some of visual studio's automated deployments. If you can/will deploy files
manually, whether it be by mapping a drive to another server or via FTP or other manual means, you just need to know what files the server requires to run a website, and which files are only needed to generate code (such as code behind for webforms or contoller/model
files for an MVC project).

Please just use FTP like Filezilla, CoreFTP, SmartFTP to upload all your files. You can download Filezilla for FREE and to upload it, you can check our blog at
