Hosting website on my computer


 I have finished working on a website and I'd like to host it on my own computer (For testing purposes).

 I made it in Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition (C#).

 I'm not new to web hosting but I'm not sure how I go about hosting it on my own computer, especially when my website is comprised of a web service as well (2 projects).

 I've searched the net but im still not sure how I do it with a web service (all my methods are on the web service)

 Thanks in advance

 Windows XP Pro SP3, installing IIS as I write this.

5/4/2009 3:01:58 PM

Okay I got an HTML file running from my IP address, 

then I added a virtual directory to my website for the web services.

When I tried to access them through localhost they gave me errors, I then followed this guide that said it would fix it:

1. Unregistered all the versions of ASP.NET with command "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis –ua".

2. Deleted the ASPNET account from "Local Users and Group – Users".

3. Then registered ASP.NET 2.0 with IIS using "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis –i".

4. Gave permissions to the ASPNET account using "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis –ga machinename\ASPNET".

5. Reset the IIS and that resolved the issue for ASP.NET 2.0.

6. We registered ASP.NET 1.1 with IIS as well using command "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis –i".

7. Reset the IIS.



Then, I tried to access the services again but this time I was blocked out because of a 403 error... anyway I succeeded in adding the web references from inside

the project, so that worked.


But now, when I go to the Login Page of my website thorugh localhost I get this:

Server Application Unavailable

The web application you are attempting to access on this web server is currently unavailable.  Please hit the "Refresh" button in your web browser to retry your request.

Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure can be found in the application event log of the web server. Please review this log entry to discover what caused this error to occur.


now I dont know what to do from here.

How to Create a Simple Web Form for Go Daddy hosted site from Visual Web Dev 2005 Express Edition
I have spent all weekend trying to make my simple form mail WORK.  And now, much forum hunting and Go Daddy calling later, I want to post what I have learned, hoping to save another newbie a loooooong weekend.  So here goes:1) If you don't have one already, create an e-mail account at Go Daddy.  It will take about 15 minutes to become active.  Write down your user id and password, then forge ahead with the rest of this.  It will take you less than an hour, depending on how detailed your form is.2) Create your form in MS VWD 2005 X ed using the Wizard tool...

Visual Web Dev 2005 Express & SQL 2005 Express
Last week I downloaded and installed Vis Web Dev Express 2005 and have it running absolutely fine.  2 days later I downloaded the most recent SQL Server Express but when I try to install it, I get a message saying it has "detected incompatible beta components fromVisual Studio or SQL Server" and that I must "run the build clean up wizard from the cd."  Since I downloaded both parts I dont have a cd.  I dont particularly want to uninstall webdev express because the download was so slow the first time and it doesn't leave an install file for reinstallation.  What's my best ...

How to have VS web server host at a website root? (VWD 2005 Express Edition)
If I was using the full version of VS 2005, then this wouldn't be a problem with an web application, but with VWD EE, it likes to tack on a virtual directory (or folder name) matching the web project name.  Is there anyway to modify my machine so that this web server loads the pages at the root: ie: localhost:####/index.aspxinstead of localhost:####/MyAppName/index.asp?  wow.. no replies.well anyway, it's so easy to change, just somewhat hiding (I expected it to be in the website "property pages".  It's right under website properties(F4).  ...

move database from web dev express to SQL 2005 or SQL Express
I'm guessing something like this has been posted before, but I'm having trouble finding excatly what I'm looking for.  Here's the situation. I am building a site based on the club starter kit.  The database appears to be part of the web project.  I've modified some of the tables so it's not the original club database anymore. I would like to move this database to SQL Express (i.e. the database will appear in my SQL Server Mgmt. Studio) and I would also like to try to move it to SQL 2005.  I don't have a host yet, so I think being able to move it to either product would ...

I have Visual Studio .NET installed and have purchased a textbook for learning that uses examples, cases, and projects which reference use of Visual Web Developer Express 2005 (VWD).

I downloaded VWD and started to install it but stopped as I noticed the intallation as about to copy all it's files into the same directory the contained Visual Studio.

Move website from VS 2005 Standard to Visual Web Developer 2005 Express
I am working with a partner who is using Visual Studio 2005 Standard edition and I am using Visual Web Developer 2005 Express. I have found a tutorial to move the website from express to the standard version. Is there a way to move a website from Visual Studio 2005 Standare edition to Visual Web Developer Express? What options might we have? If it is only a Web site, you can simple open it in VWD Express, no changes needed. If it is a solution with multiple sites or other projects like class library or control library, you won't be able to open it in VWD Express as it only supports Web sit...

Visual web developer 2005 express to visual web developer 2008 express
 I created a project(web site) in vwd 2005 on Win XP. Upon trying vwd 2008 on Vista home premium, and opening the project and selecting to convert to 3.5 .Net, the formatting is not correct.
