Web Site Deployment

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Stuart Ferguson, Oct 7, 2005.

  1. I am currently in the process of learning ASP.Net using Visual Studio
    2005 and have the following question regarding deployment to IIS.

    If i use the Publish Web Site menu option within the IDE the aspx files
    are copied up to my specified location which is fair enough however
    there are a number of files copied to my bin folder on the IIS Folder
    (e.g. App_Web_main.aspx.cdcab7d2.dll).

    The question is what are these files for and are they needed for a live
    deployment ?

  2. Stuart,

    The .dll files in the bin directory are essential. Those files are the
    compiled code (all your code-behind pages) that contain your business logic.
    They are built from the .vb files. It's the .vb files that aren't necessary
    to your production website.
