Moving development files to server - Deployment? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-241974620 posted


    I have created a website which is working fine with my system using VS development server (not IIS).

    Now I need to move it to my website over internet. I have enabled asp.net2.0 in the server.

    Since it is FTP moving i can't use deployment tools. What i did was, just published my website (using VS2005) and created the precompiled website.

    Now I have copied the files in the folder to my website. But it is throwing error "Cannot load assemebly....".

    Some thing related to web.config file.

    COuld any one help me with the changes to be made for server in web.config file?

    IS it not been enough to create precompiled website? Am i missing any thing else.

    Note: I haven't moved the solution file since it is not part precompiled file

    Thanks in Advance,

     cannot load assembly can happen when your references are missing. check your references. if you are using any third party control, make sure you copy the referenced dll into your bin folder on server.
