IIS-6 Question? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    Let me know if I posted this in the wrong forum and direct me to the right one if possible.

    My company's website is hosted on our server as LIVE or in PRODUCTION. All the files are stored in a
    live, production environment. No one here but me who have real .Net knowledge. One marketing director are doing some minor updating on the site LIVE (mostly some quick & dirty cut and past).

    I managed to grabbed these pages and load into visual studio .net 2.0 but there's no solution and no way of using breakpoints to test in a testing environment. All I did so far is some minor update on LIVE production.

    My problem is that I need to clone a working section which is not active at the moment. Clone it and rename it for a specific client. How do I make it an active website? I am familiar with IIS-6 but not enough to make me a mediocre user. I tried to make a new virtual directory from within the current working directory but am not successful. Normally I would deploy to the server and create a new virtual directory if it doesn't already exists. Do I create a directory from withing "Web Sites" >>> "FTS" (globe icon) >>> "New Clone Name"???

    One possible solution is to fine the previous page, which is the working & non-active page, that link to this login page and create a new link (response.redirect) to a new clone? If so, is there a way to correct this LIVE/PRODUCTION problem? The application already have a few errors, including IIS-6 error, and I am surprise it's working.
