One of the big buzzwords these days is "Cloud". I see it on TV commercials during football games all the time and often wonder if 99% of the audience has any clue what the commercial is actually talking about. The cloud is essentially a hosting service where you can host your databases or web sites. It is a cost-efficient way of getting applications up and running without investing a lot of money in infrastructure. this article will show you how to build and rebuild ASP.NET web application to the cloud hosting.
Note: User has administration access to the website
Here is step by step how to build and rebuild your ASP.NET application in cloud hosting:
Login to the Classic Cloud Control Panel
If you are new to ASPHostPortal Cloud, please refer to Adding a new website and add the website.
NOTE: The domain must have .Net and Asp technology Feature enabled. This can be verified and changed if necessary in the Features tab of the domain as shown below.
Navigate to Hosting -> Cloud Sites -> This will list all the domains/websites owned by the account and click on the website to be updated.
Create the following two files:
1. First_asp_page.asp - This is a simple ASP page
<title>My First ASP Page</title>
<body bgcolor="white" text="black">
strMessage = "Hello World"
Response.Write ("The time on the server is: " & Time())
2. web.config - This is the configuration file. Fill in your username and password to allow impersonation. Refer to MSDN for more information
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<identity impersonate="true" userName="dfw\YOURNAME" password="YOURPASSWORD" />
Verify that logging is turned on if needed. Refer to Enable logging for a website
Upload the two files created to the main directory of the website using one of the following two methods
ftp - Refer to Upload content to a website using FTP
File Manager - Refer to Upload content to a website using the File Manager
Navigate to the First_asp_page.asp using the Test URL if necessary. Refer to Use a staging URL. Ensure that it is served by Cloud Sites.
You can rebuild your ASP.NET Application. There are two methods you can use the rebuild the application in IIS.
The first method is to use the Rebuild App link in the General Settings tab of your Classic Cloud Control Panel. To access this just go to Hosting -> Cloud Sites -> Click on the website in question -> Then scroll down and you should see the Rebuild App link to the right.
The second method is to simply delete and reupload your web.config file.
