Need helps on deploying a web services or web app to an existing web server

Hi people,

I am going to deploy a new web service and a new web application to an existing web server, which is also hosting several other web apps. I am told that the IIS CAN NOT BE STOPPED, which means I can not build a MSIs to install them.

Looks like only two options I can use:


2) Publish the web service or web app through the VS 2008.

Can anyone please give me some advices what is the best way to have a deployment without any interruptings and less problems.

Thank you.

use FTP to copy files from your system to web hoster system. you can search and download the FTP software from web or use visualstudio's built-in ftp.

 login into your account from ftp and upload your files. and test.

 Thanks raju for the info.

It is deployed in an intranet server. It is not necessary to FTP.

When we want to deploy a website to server, we can precompile this website or xcopy the website files to the virtual directory on IIS, and then configure it, such as ASP.NET version etc.

For more information, see Deploying ASP.NET Applications (

I look forward to receiving your test results.

How do I merge web services' app.config with web app's web.config? Help!!
I have a web application project that uses a separate class library containing web service references (service layer). I want to be able to configure the web reference URLs dynamically and I know you can set this up by setting the URL behavior to  'Dynamic', etc, etc. The problem is VS2005 puts the URLs in the project's app.config file. When the class library becomes a DLL component, I have no way of accessing the app.config file.Is there a way to make the web reference project to look for the URLs in the web.config instead of its app.config? Or is there a way to merge this app.config w...

Deploying VS.NET 2005 Crystal on a Web Server for Web App
Can someone confirm when/where the Crystal for VS.NET 2005 Merge Modules will be available?Secondarily.. I am wanting to deploy to a web server and with VS.NET 2003 v (and VS.NET 2002 version), I had to use the merge modules to be able to enter in our product key otherwise we had licensing issues.I just read a post that seemed to imply that this may not be needed with VS.NET 2005 version.. is that so?I am able to create a installation package by choosing Crystal as a prerequisite in the VS.NET 2005 setup project, but that seems more like the thing we would do if we were shipping out a WinFor...

Deploy 3.5 web app on .NET 3.0 web server?

Web Deployment and Web Services
I was looking at the Web Deployment application and as much info as I could find here on the site.  Searching for "web services" turned up nothing in this forum though. I see it is possible so that the web.config can be edited and copied differently using the Web Deployment, but I was curious if there is a way to update web service references? Using it on development I point it to a sample web services that work with a test database, and when I push to live, I would like to have it correctly point to web services on the production web server that point to the live database.  Is i...
