Publishing XML supports both FTP method and Web deploy method. Let us see deployment using Web Deploy method. You would also notice that server name with https prefix, we have setup this URL with SSL certificate so that you can safely deploy your website over internet. One more thing you would notice is "Remote connection string not required" against this Movies DB it is because this MoviesDB application uses integrated SQL Compact Databases .SDF and so you would not require an explict or external MS SQL Server access on your hosting account, if your web application uses MSSQL or MySQL server then it would be filled in with information by default from Publishing XML. Ok, now that you have imported the settings lets Click on validate settings to connect to the server. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-import-publishingxml_03.png[/img] You have done your validation part and is successful, the information you have got on Publish setting is fine and able to connect to server. Click on save button to save this setting on your project. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-publishing-validatesettings_03.png[/img] [b]Step 3: Publishing[/b] You are done with the server validation part, let us now start publishing website. Click on Publish. This will perform compatibility check with the server to see you web application is compatible with the server / web hosting account. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-publish-compatibilitysettings_03.png[/img] Accept and proceed with compatibility check with the server. WebMatrix will upload few sample / test files to the server to check the server requirement for your website. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-compatibilitychecking-uploadingfiles_03.png[/img] You would then see WebMatrix validating the server requirement, for this MoviesDB website you would need ASP.NET setup and support for simple HTML on server. It is validated and WebMatrix found them available on our Web hosting account. Click on Continue to proceed with deployment. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-publish-compatibility-results_03.png[/img] The Publish Preview dialog box appears. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-publish-preview_03.png[/img] Review the list of files and databases and make changes if necessary. For example, you might want to clear check boxes under Changed Files to exclude some files. [quote]Important: If you're publishing a database and the database already exists in the hosting provider's site, whatever is in that database will be overwritten. [/quote] Click Continue. WebMatrix publishes the website, showing status messages in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. The publishing process is done in the background, which means you can continue to work in WebMatrix while it is publishing. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-publishing-yourwebhosting_02.png[/img] In the notification bar at the bottom of the screen, you can click Log to see a detailed log of the publishing activity. [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-deployment-log_03.png[/img] If you see something in the log that catches your attention during the publishing process, you can click Pause Scroll to go back and examine what you saw more carefully. When the publishing process is complete, the notification bar lets you know: [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-publishing-complete_02.png[/img] [b]Step 4: Review Site[/b] To verify that publishing was successful, browse to the site. If you published a database, make sure you try any pages that display data from the database. [quote]Note: If your site has a Web.config file, the copy on your web hosting account on web server might look slightly different. For example, if you published a SQL Server database, it will have the our web hosting SQL connection string value so that the published site will use the database at the hosting provider.[/quote] [img]http://www.hostasp.net/articles/images/webmatrix/webmatrix-review-websites_03.png[/img] In the next Topic we will show how to download [b]DotNetNuke[/b] using WebMatrix Gallery, and set them up locally, test and then deploy remotely on a server.]]> <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix-deployment.html">WebMatrix Deployment</a>, <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix.html">WebMatrix</a>, <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix-publishing.html">WebMatrix Publishing</a> Sun, 25 Sep 2011 19:57:32 +0000 Getting Started with WebMatrix - Part-2 WebMatrix Create Website from Template https://www.hostasp.net/forums/question/getting-started-with-webmatrix-part-2-webmatrix-create-website-from-template.html https://www.hostasp.net/forums/question/getting-started-with-webmatrix-part-2-webmatrix-create-website-from-template.html <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix-deployment.html">WebMatrix Deployment</a>, <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix.html">WebMatrix</a>, <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix-publishing.html">WebMatrix Publishing</a> Thu, 22 Sep 2011 11:34:46 +0000 Getting Started with WebMatrix - Part-1 WebMatrix Installation https://www.hostasp.net/forums/question/getting-started-with-webmatrix-part-1-webmatrix-installation.html https://www.hostasp.net/forums/question/getting-started-with-webmatrix-part-1-webmatrix-installation.html <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix.html">WebMatrix</a>, <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix-deployment.html">WebMatrix Deployment</a>, <a href="/forums/tags/webmatrix-publishing.html">WebMatrix Publishing</a> Thu, 22 Sep 2011 03:23:35 +0000
