Configure VS 2008 to run from Web Server

Posted 06 April 2010 - 08:46 AM

Hello,

I'm working in a managed environment where I don't have admin rights on my local machine, but I do on the web server. I can't "run" a VS 2008 web application locally because the machines are restricted by group policy. I can compile successfully, though. What I need to do (hopefully) is to configure VS 2008 to compile the app locally, copy / deploy the files to the web server, then run the app from the webserver with debugging. Oh, and all web server traffic is limited to SSL.

I've Googled quite a bit and can't find how to configure this, or even if it's possible.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Check out Remote Debugging in Visual Studio 2008

You seem to be asking to be able to debug a web application that is published on a remote server. This should help you out with that.

Thanks for your response!

I'm kind of asking that, but a bit different. BTW, I won't be able to use remote debugging - after reading the article you posted, it requires you to open ports through firewalls, etc. I won't be able to do all that. The system is fairly restricted.

That being said, however, I can share the deployment (web) directory and map it on my development computer. So, I guess I can compile locally, then "publish" the application to the directory, the open in a browser. I would think there should be an easier way, but maybe not.

If you can map the shared space from the remote server to your PC, then that's probably what I would do. Not the best solution, but it might be your only solution. Not sure how debugging is going to go though.
