Problem Creating Web Project on Hosted Server

P: n/a
BG
Hey All,

Using VB.Net Standard 2003. WIN 2000/Pro & WIN XP Pro 2002.

Trying to create an ASP.Net web app out on the server that I lease from.

Steps that I'm using...

File>New>Project>ASP.Net Web App
Location = Http:///www.Myhosting site.net/Appname
Close Solution is checked.
Click OK.
I then get the "Creating New Web" window which displays the correct path of
the server and application.
After a few seconds, I get a msg "Unable to retrieve folder information from
the server. Not Found".
So I cancel out. Yet when I log into my hosted site as admin and look at the
structure, I see a folder for the ASP.Net app that I was trying to create.
This folder contains nothing and IS NOT setup as a web application. It's my
understanding that VS.Net does this by default.

In the VB.Net project options, I have "Frontpage" & "Link repair" selected.
I have "FrontPage Extensions" enabled on both WIN 200 & WIN XP. I am a
member of the VS Developers on both of my home computers.

If I attempt a "Project>Copy Project" route then I get prompted for a login
and password to the hosted site. Msg states "This operation requires author
permission for www.Myhosting site.net:80. My host is using ports 1430 &
14330 I believe. Problem here?? When I supply my CORRECT login and password
to the host I get "The user name or password you entered is incorrect, or
you do not have authorization to perform this operation." I then use the
SAME login and password to log into my hosted site and lo' & behold the app
that fails has a folder in the host. I now have a crap-load of test app
folders I have to get rid of.

Anyone that feels up to it is more than welcome to respond.

Thanks,

BG

Hi,

Check with MyHosting and make sure your account is setup
properly to copy a project to them.
