Help understanding the deployment process

Posted 11 June 2014 - 06:10 AM

Hello -

I am almost through my first year of developing in .NET (programming in general). I have gotten pretty comfortable building asp.net web applications, and recently was asked to build a website for a friend. I am very confident in the actual 'building process', but not so much when it comes time to get it live.

What is the overall process for a web application and its database to get deployed and published to a host, like godaddy?

I am working in Visual Studio 2013, with SQL Server 2012 for my data.

Any help/insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Make sure the host has windows IIS running.
Make sure the DB, on the host, contains the table/data you need from the local.
Right click on your project and click 'publish'.
- Personally I publish to a local folder and then ftp/copy the files to the required public html directory on the host.
Make sure the connection strings, in the web config, are pointed to the db on the host and not local.
Test.

The majority of my time is spent getting the server to behave properly for the first run around. Get in the habit of writing down everything you've tried lol.
