Moving from Dev to production


I have a fully up-and-running DNN site on my home machine. I want to go live with it.

Is there a way to migrate the site, instead of create the site on my prod server and manually add all the modifications/changes I have made?

I have an existing DNN portal on my prod site under a different domain name which I want to preserve.

Any pointers?

There are several posts about this already (try a search), but here are the quick directions (because I'm on my way to work).

  1. Make a backup of everything
  2. Delete everything off the remote server (excluding any admin control panels, stats software, etc that the host has placed there for you).
  3. On you local installation, add two portal aliases for your domain name ( and
  4. Make sure your database is ready on the remote server and gather your connection string.
  5. FTP the entire contents of your local site to the remote server.
  6. Fire up SQL Enterprise Manager.
  7. Right click on your existing database and "All Tasks/Export Data"
  8. Enter the information for this and your remote SQL server.
  9. Specify to copy objects and data to the destination server.
  10. On the "Select objects to copy" page
    1. Uncheck "Use default options"
    2. Click the "options" button
    3. Uncheck "copy database users and roles"
    4. Uncheck "copy object level permissions"
    5. presss ok
  11. Click next a couple of times and be prepared to wait for a while until it's done.

Hey Alex, just to toss in a warning for novice sql server users: sql server is notoriously hard to manage this way. I have given up trying, preferring instead to simple export and import .bak files. It is infinitely more trustworthy (at least in my experience). Most hosts handle this task well, unless they are restoring a db with a differing name. Easy once you have done it a couple of times, next to impossible if you are just just fumbling around Ü

Just a little warning for newcomers... cheers, drew..

Help Moving DNN install from DEV to PRODUCTION
Hey all, I'm hoping this will be a simple issue.. I installed DNN locally (//localhost/dnn) and everything is working fine.  Now I took the DB and moved it to my hosting company SQL box, moved the code over, created a new web application in IIS and it is now housed at say  The first time I tried to access I redirected me to //localhost/dnn, so I remembered from old DNN versions about the Portal Alias, so I modified the values in PortalAlias from "localhost/dnn" to "".  Now I get a weird error: R...

Moving from dev machine to production web server
I'm trying to move my application from my workstation, where i do all the development, to the actual web server. i've created the folder and put all files (.aspx and aspx.vb)...however when i try to visit the first page, which looks for a cookie that i set on another page, I get the following: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Need Help! Just moved our application into production and tried to configure for .NET 2.0
Hi, I hope someone can help. We just moved our application that has been upgraded from .NET 1.1 to .NET 2.0 into production. We installed .NET 2.0 Framework and the AJAX extensions. When I first went to test the site I received an error that referenced the web.config. It was hanging on the System.WebExtensions SectionGroup. I googled this problem and I was reminded that I needed to configure the site to run under the new .NET 2.0 framework in IIS. I went into IIS 6.0 and navigated to the tab of the properties of our website. The ASP.Net Version drop down was blank. I c...

Moving To Production
So I've been building an e-commerce system based on the beer house. I've been building it and testing it using the built-in web server that comes with visual studio.

When I try to view the application I get this error in IE: Server Error in Application "Default Web Site/TheBugZoo" HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error Description: This application is running in an application pool that uses the Integrated .NET mode.

Moving to .net
Hi,I have inherited a very large asp application and would like to move to .net. I think I have everything installed properly and am not sure how much mixing I can do with the old asp code. I'd like to convert a page or group of pages at a time, without breaking the application.  Is it possible to run both asp (3 I think) and 2.0 in the same website? One example of the type of thing I'd like to do:If I create a new page (aspx file) I'd like to be able to include the existing navigation  code, which is an asp file.  Can I do that?Any help or pointers to help is greatly ...

Moving to Production
I'm creating my first test app on a machine with everything local to it. I've noticed that as I add DataAdapters, etc they are all configured with the connection strings for this local way of working. What is the best way to handle this, as obviously when the sites goes into production it's going to be running on a different machine with an SQL server on a different machine again? I assume there is a way to make sure I can copy the 'code' over and have all database connections just work? (At the moment I'm not putting my data connections in a seperate layer as a web service, which w...
