Publish to IIS6 from VS2008 fails when I use 'Wildcard applicatiion map' RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1250549141 posted

    I have just written my first ASP.NET MVC application in VS2008. It runs perfectly locally, and it also published without problem to my web server (Windows 2003/ IIS6) the first time. I run many other web sites there, all of them always publish without problem.

    Then of course I had to create a 'Wildcard applicatiion map' so that IIS could find and process my "pages" even though they don't end in .aspx when you use MVC.

    After that when I try to publish from VS2008, it fails with:

    Unable to create the Web site 'http://www.100wordbooks.com/'. You are not authorized to perform the current operation.

    If I remove the 'Wildcard applicatiion map' then the publishing works again (but of course my application won't work anymore), and when I add it again, the publishing stops working.

    Can someone give me a hint to how I can solve this so that I can publish while I have the 'Wildcard applicatiion map' active?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    Unable to create the Web site 'http://www.100wordbooks.com/'. You are not authorized to perform the current operation.

    So far, I haven't find a solid solution for this problem, alternatively, we can create the MVC website in Virtual Directory directly, so that any changes in visual studio will take effect on the web site in IIS immediately.

     Regards

    Anyone have a resolution for this?  I always used web Deployment Projects and manually copied the files up but a client i'm working with uses this method and he can no longer publish his files using Publish from withing his Visual Studio environment

    Would love to get a workaround.....
