How to get MVC.NET to work on shared host?


 I am not sure what I need to tell my host in order to run an MVC.NET application on their server. I tried simply publishing it, but I got an error. My host support said to simply change the version to in the web.config file. I tried this and this did not work. I was told by my host that .NET 3.5 was installed. I am not sure what to tell them to do in order to allow MVC.NET applications to run.

Thanks in advance

 They'll need to download and install the extentions. 

However, it's likely to be shared hosting, and considering the extensions are not even in beta, it's just a preview, it's unlikely that your host will be willing to install it.


Good luck.

Rather than installing the extensions, can you not just copy the new .dll's to your bin directory?

Should I change something in web.config except simple copying System.Web.Extensions.dll to /bin directory?

You may just replace the corresponding assembly references from inside the opened solution in Visual Studio.

Choose these "copied-to-bin" files as the new referencies.

ScottGu says that this is going to be addressed in next the drop of MVC released at the same time as MIX08 (Early March).

MVC on .Net 2.0 shared hosting
My web host only supports up to .Net 2.0.  They have also informed me that because .Net 3.0 and up are full trust applications, that they will not be upgrading to 3.0 for quite some time.  I want to use the MVC framework now without having to pay for a more expensive web host.  Does anyone know of a reliable set up for .Net 2.0?  I've found a couple tutorials on google and such but they don't work when I try to run them.  I keep getting config errors. Usually pertaining to frame work or assemblies not found.  I don't care if I have to create this fro...

MVC is only for .Net 3.5? Is it not available for .Net 2.0?
Hello. I´m new to MVC and I want to try it.. My fist question is: MVC is only for .Net 3.5? Is it not available for .Net 2.0?Thanks!  You could get it to run on 2.0:, but you would be better advised to get 3.5 SP1.  It is free, after all.  So is Visual Web Developer Express, so you can play with it. Regards Mike [MVP - ASP/ASP.NET]My site ASP.NET MVC distributed assemblies reference System.Core.dll assembly from .NET FW 3.5 so you need .NET FW 3.5 to run ASP.NET MVC.Don't forget to click &qu...

 Any advantage on the .Net MVC? Thanks BillwWebhost4lifeQuality Hosting, Quality Performance, Quality Pricing!Best Asp.Net Hosting! If you mean what are the advantages of ASP.Net MVC over the standard WebForms model, here's my list:Testability - Since your logic is within a standard .Net class (the Controller) you can test it by just constructing a new instance of that class and calling the method.  Sure, it gets a little more complex in more advanced scenarios, but I still find it much easier than testing WebForms appsStrong Separation of Concerns - In MVC, the framework g...
