Site Deployment Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Does anyone know if it's possible to prevent a website folder from being deployed?  There was a way in FrontPage to tag a folder with "do not publish" and can't find anything similar in VS'05.  The reason is that I'm trying to avoid a folder overwrite and prevent the contents from getting deleted.

Any advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

How to solve concurrent site issue


Hi All,

I have developed a ASP.NET2.0 web site with SQL 2000 backend and number users to site is approx. 5-10.

I have developed one Administration page which controls user roles to access this site; onclick of Update button in admin page the role gets updated into the system. I have written simple query in the code to update the user roles into database; Ajax implemented in admin page;

Issue: If 2-3 users tries to update the admin roles; latest update reflected in the database and same displayed in the admin page;

I am looking for a solution to solve this problem by application code change since i dont have flexible to change the database end; if one users update the system, it should not allow other users to perform any operation; please let me know if any standard approach can be implemented with minor code change.

Thanks in Advance,

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)



I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?


Issue with Picture Library Slideshow Web Part after export/import of site collection (SP2010)


I recently exported/imported an SP2010 site collection from Dev to Prod. The site collection had about 90 sites, which were all driven from a site template. Once the export/import had taken place, I created an additional 15 sites (in Prod), using the original site template that was created in the Dev environment. Everything seemed to be working just fine, but I found an issue with the Picture Library Slideshow Web Parts (PLSWP) on all the sites that were created in Prod. Basically, I have a Picture Library, and any pictures added to this library show up in the PLSWP. The original 80 site's PLSWP works fine, but the new 15 sites will not show the pictures through the PLSWP (the viewer just shows up blank). Here is the difference in the html output of the picture viewer:

 PLSWP from Dev:

Service deployment issue



I have a WCF service that is hosted in Windows service and has been tested on the local box. Now I want to deploy it on the dev box (Windows Server 2003 SP2) and test it remotely with mutiple clients accessing it simulateously. Our dev box doesn't have Visual Studio on it and I couldn't find installutil.

The WCF Service and Windows Service were both developed on the guidelines found in this forum and on the SMDN.

1. Where do I look for installutil on the dev box? Or, can I just copy it from my local machine to somewhere on the dev box?

2. What files do I need to copy to dev box in order to install the service there?

2. Do I need to make any changes to the config before moving to dev box?

Application deployment - database connection issue


Hi, I finished an intranet application using webconfig to store my connection string to an Access database which has linked tables to SQL Server 2005.

Everything works perfectly, but when I publish the application on a IIS server service, it seems like all connections fail... :(


I looked up on internet but found nothing on this. I think my webconfig file is correct :


    <add key="dbconnect" value="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=//192.168.xxx.x/Websites/xxx/xxx.accdb;Persist Security Info=True"/>


Any idea why it happens?


thanks alot !

Creating custom site template from a site that has a subsite - issue

  1. We created a Report Center site (a subsite) inside our site and then saved the site as a custom site template (including content). When we create the site out of this template, the site does not include the Report Center subsite. Can someone explain why?
  2. The report center was created for Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and we had published those KPIs on the parent site. We were hoping the any site created with our custom site template would show the KPIs. But we see only the KPI web part on the new site (created from our custom site template) without any KPI data. The reason is obvious because the data was coming from the Report Center subsite that does not get created by our custom site template. How do we accomplish this task via a custom site template?

After SharePoint 2007 upgrade to SharePoint 2010 issue with custom site(s)


With our 2007 site(s) we had a custom module (we developed) to swap out the application.master with our own master page which resembled the site default.master.  This worked great.

After the upgrade, out site's main pages looked fine however when navigating to the admin type pages (settings/viewlists etc.) pages the module stopped working.

1.) I have figured out something things with respect to what is going on but am still at a loss to how best resolve.  We want the layouts/admin pages to have the same master page as the main user pages.   I have read in 2010 this is now possible.  How can I achieve this?


2.) Currently, when navigating to the sites/settings page the site is using template/layouts/layoutsv3.master as the master page.  The settings.aspx page has DynamicMasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master" .  It was my understanding that when DynamicMasterPageFile was set to default.master it would use the master page from the site.  So, with that said I am confused why it is using layoutsv3.master

any help would be appreciated

the site default page issue


Hi All,

I have set the site default page is default.aspx and set that page allowed without user authentication

if we call http://www.mydomain.com/default.aspx, it is working without authentication

but if we are calling without filename (http://www.mydomain.com) , it is redirected to

the problem is, if we are calling without filename (http://www.mydomain.com), it should not redirect to login.aspx page

because the default.aspx page is not accecpted as the domain default page.

Notes : I have converted asp.net 2.0 to asp.net 4.0 web application. after conversion conly  this problem arises
