Problems in deploying WebMatrix application to a server

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

hi there,

I have developed a simple "test" project and the files are in .CSHTML. The application works fine locally. However, when I publish to the server, the application fails to load. It throws 404 Page Not Found error. The .CSHTML is rendered by the server though however, when it is trying to pull something from the SQL Compact database, it throws this error message.

Another thing to note down: I installed WebMatrix application on the server and I then try to run my project with this WebMatrix application. It works. In other words, the project works fine with the URL like http://localhost:8448/gallery/Item-101029, however it fails when I try to browse to it publicly via URL http://www.myDomain.com/gallery/Item-101029.

Would you please advise what did I do wrong here? I can see that the SQL compact database is in my App_data folder. Why does http://www.myDomain.com/gallery/Item-101029 fails to work? Thanks in advanced for all the advises

Error while Deploying WebMatrix Beta Application having SQL Database on Remote Server


Hello All,

I have created "DotNetNuke SQL Database Application" from the WebMatrix Gallery.

Now I want to deploy it on the remote server using Web Deploy method.

Without selecting SQL database, application is deployed successfully but when I select SQL database it gives following error:

Publish : Error - Make sure the database connection string for the server is correct and that you have appropriate permission to access the database. (Web Deploy provider is dbFullSql).

Can anyone have the solution of this error?

Thanks in advance....

Problems deploying Report in Local Server (localhost)


OK, I'm kind of new to SQL Server 2008 and I'm having issues trying to deploy a report in my local server.


Basically, I installed SQL Server 2008 R2 in my personal desktop and because of this, I thought no Service Account were necessary since I was going to be the only one accesing it; anyway; I've created a set of reports and everything works fine; but when I try to deploy them, they won't go through.

I open a browser and type http:\\localhost\reportserver and it actually requests me for a password; the username is already populated, which is the name of my computer, but then for the password, I didn't set up any password for anything, during the installation and if I put my computer password, it doesn'y work either, after three attemps, the browser simply goes blank.

I'm sure this might be a very basic issue, but I've been trying to look for answer, online, through forums etc; and no good luck yet...


Thanks in advanced for all your help!



Deploying Web Application from VS.Net 10 to Windows Server 2003



I have built my site using VS.Net 2010 on my XP machine. I would like to deploy it to my server which is a Windows 2003 Server. I have tried to do it with FTP, but it keeps failing with the error that "Front Page Extensions are not installed on the web server". When I check the server the extensions were installed and I also checked IIS and the service for the extension is allowed. How can I get this done? I need to deploy my site urgently.

Your advise is welcome.



deploying to msdeploy does not support a proxy server


I am trying to deploy through webmatrix but my system Proxy server configuration is not being used. I assume that webmatrix would detect the proxy server settings and use that for the msdeploy calls under the hood. Can anyone confirm this is a know issue?

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.

Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Problems building 32-bit .NETapplication that uses 64-bit COM server

I have a .NET application that uses a 3rd party 32bit DLL, so I need to build it using the x86 platform instead of 'Any CPU'. I also have a 64bit out-of-proc COM server that I reference the EXE directly in the project.  The project builds fine for 'Any CPU' but can't run on 64bit Windows because of the 32-bit dll.  This is expected.  But when I specify 'x86' the build fails and I get: TlbImp : error TI0000: A single valid machine type compatible with the input type library must be specified. C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Microsoft.Common.targets(1558,9): warning MSB3283: Cannot find wrapper assembly for type library "Engine_ATLServiceLib". Basically this tells me that it failed to build the Interop Dll for the COM server object.  First off I am puzzled that I get this message when a platform is specified, I would've expected this when I build for 'Any CPU'.  That aside, I am thinking the TlbImp needs a '/Win32' or something, but I can't see how to do this in the IDE based on the platform.  Furthermore I am wondering if the marshalling in said Interop dll will be correct when the 32bit managed code talks with the 64bit COM object. Does anybody know what to do here?

Problems migrating 32-bit SQCLR routine to 64-bit SQL Server

Greetings. I have written a 32-bit SQLCLR routine that uses the 10.2g Oracle.DataAccess library to draw Oracle data through SQLServer queries. (This tool was necessary due to issues we had with the Oracle native client). This has been in place and working without issue for about two years. This tool required the independent registration of about six (?) other system assemblies, which worked without incident (various warnings about using unsupported assemblies aside). We use permission_set = unsafe for all these DLL's. We are now in the process of migrating this tool to the newer 64-bit version of SQL Server 2008 on our Windows 2008 Server R2, and we have a problem. We took our list of base assemblies from the 32-bit installation and registered them against the Framework64 version of the same DLL's on the SQL Server 2008 box, and that step worked. We found that the Oracle.DataAccess library we had could not be registered in the 64-bit SQL Server because it was an x86-specific version. We then discovered that the 64-bit version of the Oracle.DataAccess library was available only in the update patchset, which we obtained and installed. Unfortunately, adding the assembly now fails: When I attempt the CreateAssembly on the 64-bit Oracle.DataAccess.dll within the 64-bit instance of SQL Server, I now receive a new error, to-wit: "Assembly '

Having problems installing/setting up SQL Server 2008 Express/R2 for ASP.NET user management on deve

I'm a bit new to installing and configuring, well, just about anything regarding databases, so please bear with me. I'm currently building a couple of ASP.NET MVC 2 sites.  I'm following along with the MVCMusicStore tutorial, and am trying to set up user management using ASP.NET's configuration tool.  The problem is that ASP.NET can't 'see' the database. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my laptop.  It's the version which is available on the Web Platform Installer (I believe it's Express).  When I try running the aspnet_sqlreg.exe program to set up my user management database, it can't tell that I'm running any version of SQL Server at all.  I get an exception about 'named pipes', and some other things I don't understand at the moment. Obviously, this is all a bit over my head.  Is there an idiot proof guide or tutorial available that describes, step-by-step, how to: 1. Install SQL Server 2008 on a development PC 2. How to configure it to be used by Visual Studio 2010 Professional 3. How to properly upload/modify the db on the production server with what's on the development PC Essentially, all the things that the ASP.NET tutorials gloss over.  Any suggestions, links to documentation, or other nudges in the right direction would be immensely appreciated.

problems with using SQLEXPRESS database on a server

I made an application that reads a KML file every few minutes and puts the data in a SQLEXPRESS database. It works perfectly on my laptop, but when I move everything to the server where it has to run, the application doesn't find the database anymore. I tried lots of connectionstrings already, but none works. I have to admit that my knowledge of connectionstrings is not that big, so I think the answer will be very simple. In my program I point to the app.config file who looks like this atm (remember, I changed the connectionstring a couple of times already, and I have no idea anymore where I started): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <configuration> <connectionStrings> <add name="ships" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=C:\Inetpub\ftproot\eu006202\www.ortelius.icso.be\AIS\ships.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/> </connectionStrings> </configuration> I pasted the error I get on http://www.webbouwers.be/error.png Any idea what I need to do to get it work? Thank you in advance, L.
