  • Question

  • User1196168007 posted

    I have two machines source machine, where the web deploy tool is installed and the target machine where the websites are hosted.

    I want to run the web deploy command in the source machine and it has to create the Web Deploy package for the website hosted on the Target server.

    Basically the Web deploy tool will NOT be installed on the destination server, but still i want to create packages from it. How this can be achieved?

    Hi Pradeep,

    Welcome to asp.net forum.

    According to your description above, you want to deploy your asp.net app using Web Deploy command line.

    The principal elements of the Msdeploy.exe command line are a verb (also called an operation), a source, an optional destination, and optional operation settings. The verb and source are required. A destination is required by some verbs, but not others. Optional operation settings modify how the command runs. Reference: Web Deploy Command Line Syntax

    Questions about using the Microsoft Web Deployment Tool to sync or migrate sites and servers, you can get help from Web Deployment Tool (MS Deploy) forum.

    Best regards,
