Default Deploying the site

Hi all
I'm developing a website that follows the same structure of ThePhile.COM (and i'm using VS.NET 2003)... now i created a WebProject...and called it MySite...this created
1-Folder under Visual Studio Projects called MySite that contains MySite.sln
2-Folder under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot called MySite and contains all other project files...(aspx..ascx..etc)

Then i added 5 Class Library Projetcs...this created 5 folders under the folder (that contains the solution file)....Visual Studio Projects\MySite\ ....

Now...How can i deploy this site...how can i make an executable file (using VS.NET) to deploy it?

Please...It is for a client and i have to deploy it correctly (to a public server)...Thanks in advance

Open the project in VS.

Go To Project (Toolbar)
Then Copy Project

Select File Share, and type in a desistantion folder.

From the copy menu, choose "Only Files Needed To Run This Application"

and click ok.

This will copy on the files needed to run the project in its compiled state. Make sure the project is in release mode before you do this. Then you should be able to xcopy up to the server and then set it up as you wish from there.

The other poster who mentioned "Copy Project" was correct - this is the way most of us deploy projects will only live on one server.

If you need to deploy to multiple servers, or servers that are outside of your direct control, a Web Setup .msi file (for the Microsoft Installer) may be the best option. These can also create the virtual diretory for you.

How to add a new setup project to the solution.

1. Right-click on solution, Add, New Project
2. left side, Setup and Deployment Projects
3. Right side, Web Setup Project

Please so research on the web for "Web Setup Project".
