How to deploy and activate an webservice

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by Zorglub, Aug 1, 2014.

  1. Hi,

    I created an webservice that my website will use.

    I tried to follow the instruction to publish directly from Visual Studio 2010 to the ftp site.
    Took me a few tries and error until I got it right.
    Visual Studio told me the process completed successfully.

    But now when I connect with ftp to my site, I do not see any files uploaded.

    And I am not sure what to do now.
    How can I make it so that I can access from my website to my webservice (worked perfectly on my local machine server).

    You should try using the web deploy method since it will make sure you deploy the necessary files into the directory you wish to deploy to. Read our article to make sure you deploy your necessary dependencies here:

    You might also find this forum post interesting and helpful because the person was also web deploying a web service using Visual Studio here:
