How to publish web application in VS 2013 to another server IIS? RRS feed

    I have tried on Publish Web -> Publish Method : Web Deploy. It required "Web Management Service" started & Installation of Web Deploy in the Destination Server.

    Diagnosis - Web Management Service or Remote Agent is not installed or unreachable on the remote computer.Resolution - Verify that Remote Agent Service or Web Management Service are started on the remote computer, depending on which one you are connecting to. You can do a "net start wmsvc & net start msdepsvc" on the remote computer to ensure these services are started. Also, ensure that a firewall is not interrupting communications with the destination.

    But both net start command returns "The service name is invalid"


    1. How can I fix the above issue?

    2. Can I use File System or Web Deploy Package methods? Any step by step guide?

    3. Do I need to first create IIS virtual directory on the target server or just the physical path in C:\inetpub\wwwroot ?
