WebSite vs WebApplication RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1066344940 posted

    I created a web site, that uses classes which I have in an App_Code folder. I also use some WebReferences like the GeoCodeService, RouteService, etc..., which I have in a App_WebReferences folder. I am using a SQL Server database for getting/updating/inserting data. I normally create new projects in VS as WebApps. I mistakenly created this project as a WebSite. I need to know the issues I wil face now when I deploy my site to the test server, and then production. I remember doing this before and I could not get it to work, and I had to recreate the whole project as a WebApp. I dont want to do this again. I understand that there are advantages and disadvantages to WebSite vs WebApplication. But my question is, can I just copy the whole project over and let IIS compile the site?
