Create Visual Studio Project From hosted Site

Howdy All,

Is it possible to have Visual Studio 2005 create a project form an
existing hosted website? In other words I want to be able connect via
ftp to my website structure and have it pull down all the files and
create a local project from it?

I know things like DreamWeaver will do this ... and I have been poking
around VS 2005 and haven't seen anything that jumps out at me.

Thanks in advance

No not really. I don't seem to have "open existing web site". When I
go to File -Open the choices are "Project/Solution", "Web Site",
"File", "Convert". Of course the logical choice there is "Web Site",
and when you select that it brings up a dialog box with "File System",
"Local IIS", "FTP Site", "Remote Site", "Source Control". There the
two possible options are FTP Site and Remote Site. FTP site works but
simply points up to the server so it seems any changes that are made
are made on the server itself. "Remote Site" requires that FrontPage
Server Extenstions be installed and I don't want that on the site
becuase of security concerns.

Maybe I didn't make clear what I am looking for. In DreamWeaver and
some other it will create a local copy that you can make changes to
and test in before you "deploy" or "put" them back up on the server.

Thanks

re:

How do you access the site now ? Via FTP ?

What I'd suggest is copying the site, via FTP,
to your local HDD, and creating a local website with those files.

After you've made all the changes you want to make, *publish* the site to a
different local directory and copy back, via FTP, to the original site.

Another option would be copying the site, via FTP, to your local HDD,
and creating a local website with those files, and then publishing the
new website to your remote server.

That won't require Front Page Server Extensions.

Hi all, I have 2 dev. machines, the 1st is Win 2000 with .NET 7.0 and the 2nd is XP Pro with .NET 2003. My Web Server is Win 2000 Server with IIS 5.0. I can create a new project on my test server from the 1st machine, but I receive an 'HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server error" from my Web Server. My userid/password are the same on all 3 machines.
