Help! I published a site and it deleted the wwwroot folder RRS feed

  • User-296881257 posted

    I published a site today, and during this process it deposited the project files in c:\inetpub rather than in a folder within inetpub.   Then it deleted wwwroot and it's subfolders.   Anyone have any ideas how this may have happened and how to avoid in the process?   This was a server that a vendor set up and wondering if there were permissions.   IIS7 with VS2010. 

     

    Essentially I wanted another independent site on this server and didn't want it comingled with anything the applications were currently using in c:\inetpub\wwwroot.  

     

    Thanks in advance for any input!!

    Hello,

    It depends on your FTP account home directory settings. It should directory you want (by example webstite1), not the wwwroot.

    Yes,  normally it creates a folder - website one and puts it in the location. wwwroot.  I directed it to place it in inetpub instead but it did not create the new folder instead merged and deleted.

    Hi wrknmom,

    Thanks for your post!

    According to your description, I would like to know that do the physical path of your Default Web Site is "c:\inetpub\wwwroot"?

    Please provide the detail steps about publish your project.

    On the other hand, you can create a new website in the IIS, then publish your project and check the result.

    Thanks

    Best Regards
