Publishing problem - some advice?

Oct 26, 2011 at 5:21 PM


this is not a RazorC question but rather a Webmatrix question (I thought some people in this forum may have some insights now that I have a pretty decent website working on my local server, but have problems publishing it).

When I press publish, I always get back to "Publish Settings" window, where "Validate connection" button confirms that the connection was successful.  Pressing "Save" there does not appear to do anything at all...  The only think I can do afterwards is press "Cancel". 

I don't see how to get to the "Publish Compatibility" and "Publish Preview" steps.

Any advice?

Let me start from saying you can just use any FTP program to upload your site to server, you dont have to use build in Publish option for that.

Now in WebMatrix top menu/ribbon you have publish button and small arrow under it. Click on that arrow to access menu with settings, compatibility check, etc.  If your host support web deploy use it if not make sure to select FTP.
