Hi praveenkhade,

The IIS is basically the layer that sits between your web pages and your users. It manages, amongst other things, the connections to and security settings of your websites.

There are a few steps you need to take to browse a website through your IIS.
  1. Have you got IIS installed? You need to add it through the windows Add/Remove Programs - Add/Remove Components section of control panel. A guide to doing so is here.
  2. Now run the IIS console. Click Start, Run, type inetmgr & hit enter.
  3. Next up create your website in the IIS: click on Web Sites then right click on the default website and select new virtual directory. Enter the name and location of your website using the wizard.
  4. Open your browser and enter the address of your website - it will be <name or ip of IIS server>/<name of website>
Hopefully that should get you browsing your pages.

Let me know how you get on,

Dr B

DrBunchman's reply was great.

Once you have your IIS set up you can use Visual Studio 2005's publish feature to publish your website to the web server.

We need to know if you have IIS installed, and what version of IIS you're running so that we can help you further.

I've moved this thread to the IIS forum.

By default when making a web-based project I have to pick where I want it on my local IIS (VS2005).
So it's already there and can be run from a browser at anytime?

That's weird, I don't think that I ever had to do that with 2005. VS2005 comes with that built in Dev environment and doesn't require IIS in order to develop web apps.....why would it make you pick an IIS?

Yes I do but the location box defaults to File System which is where I store it.

I've never tried setting the location as HTTP (in fact I've never noticed it before)

When the web site is not setup as the default then MapPath("virtname") returns the correct physical path for a virtual directory which has been setup. However, when the web site is setup as the default web site then MapPath("virtname") doesn't return the correct physical path. For example, http://localhost/mws/default.aspx MapPath("virtdir") in this instance correctly returns "C:\mws\data"
