Having worked right through the book, I have finally been able to put everything together for a website. However, I am having some problems deploying the site. This is what I have managed to do:
- Managed to create T SQL scripts to deploy the schema and data
- Managed to compile the site into a different local folder by using Build->Publish Web site. This created a compiled copy of the project/solution in the specified local folder. (i.e. with lots of Dlls in the bin folder)
Now I am trying to merge all the dlls into a single dll. I am doing this by opening the compiled project and adding a Web Deployment Project. Although I manage to add the deployment project, I can't build it - error "The application is already compiled". So where am I going wrong?
And once I manage to merge the dlls what comes next?
Also I am wondering if anyone has managed to use the hosting company
. If so any comments on that?
Any help greatly appreciated.
