can't deploy my web API RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1642115476 posted


    I created a web API in Visual Studio and now I want to deploy it to our remote server. I'm trying to setup a publish profile but it's not able to connect. Here is a screen shot of the settings I'm using and the error I'm getting:

    publish profile and error

    The error box that you see comes after I click Validate Connection and then Failed (click for details).

    It says to make sure Web Deploy is installed and that Web Management Service is running, and they both are. I followed the link but it more or less tells me the same thing.

    I also opened port 8172 (now disabled) as that apparently is the port for deploying web apps like my API. I tried tacking on :8172 to the end of the computer name but that had no effect.

    Knowing the destination URL might help but I assume (since we don’t have a domain for the API) it would be the same as the remote connection string (ec2-54-159-229-158.compute-1.amazonaws.com), and it seems to be an optional field so I left it blank.

    Does anything stand out as odd? Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I fixed the problem.

    Because the API site is under Default Web Site, the site name had to be "Default Web Site/RiskAliveAPI".

    Thanks for the feedback.
