MVC3 Ap in Visual Studio 2010- Changed to use Local IIS Web Server and can not get it back to VS dev server
I changed from running Use Visual Studio Development Server to Local IIS Web Server becasue I read it would create the virtual directories properly - it did not - once I navigate out of the account area I get HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
Requested URL https://localhost:443/xxx/Index
Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\xxx\Index
I have been googling and trying to get it to work, but can not and can no longer debug - Now I am trying to change it back and it keeps starting in Local IIS Web. I have HOSED myself and don't know where to go from here. Thank you
In terms of getting back to using the VS web server you should just need to:
- Right click on the web project in VS
- Selection properties
- Go to the web tab
- Select "use visual studio web server" radio button
For the sake of not leaving questions unanswered, I tried all of the suggestions above, and many more, and got nowhere. I was in an early phase at the time, and I had to move on, so I ended up creating a new solution, and porting things over. Not the best idea, but I had to go forward, and I had taken enough time. It is still living on my machine, and I plan to go back and figure it out at some point. Hopefully, I'll have more understanding and will be able to post what I did wrong so someone else can save some time. Thanks all for attempting.
