Use Copy Web to Deploy a Web Application

Use Copy Web to Deploy a Web Application

Instead of copying all the files manually you can use the Copy Web Application feature in Visual InterDev 6.0 to easily move your Web application from one server to another. This feature gives you the ability to create new Webs or connect to existing Webs on your destination Web server. This feature also provides the added functionality to copy only your latest site revisions. In order to use the Copy Web Application feature, you must have the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions installed on the destination server to which you are copying.

  • From the Project menu, choose Web Project. From the submenu, choose Copy Web Application.
  • In the Source Web Server section, choose the Master Web Server option, because it points to your current Web project. The option to use the Local Web Server is available if you want to copy from your solution file instead. Remember, if you use the solution file, it may not contain all of the pages that are located on the master Web server.
  • In the Destination Web Server section, type your destination server name in the Server Name box. Then, in the Web project text box, type your project name or delete the contents and it will change to Root Web.
  • If this is a new project on the destination Web server, clear the Add to an existing Web project option. If you are publishing to the root Web, you will leave the option Add to an existing Web Project selected, because this site was created by default when the server was set up.
