Publish Failed

although my publish usually works for my asp.net 2.0 projects, sometimes it
just says "Publish Failed". Is there anywhere I can look to see the reason?
Perhaps a log?

Hi Gary,

As Dave has suggested, the straight info about website publishing is the
output window. Generally the publish web site will go through the following
two steps:

1. perform precompilation against the web application

2.clear the target directory(virtual directory in IIS or physical file
folder) and deploy all the files (of the web application) into the target
directory

In the output window you can check at which stage does the publish website
operation fail. For example, at the first stage, if there are some error
which will only occur at precompilation, that will cause the stage 1 fail.
Or some times if the target directory has something configured incorrectly.
Such as the IIS virtual dir is not set to the correct ASP.NET version or
some old files are locked and prevent them from being cleared. Mostly,
publish failed will be caused by IIS side configuration issue such as
authenitcation setting....

So far there is no dedicated log file on this at VS 2005 side.

If there is any further questions on this, please feel free to post here.

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng
