Publish application

The application is published by moving the application files to a web server, converting them to an application, and defining the application pool using Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). This workflow uses Microsoft IIS 7. If you are using a different version, modify the workflow as necessary. Contact your server administrator for information about setting up the application on a virtual directory, server security, or installing and configuring ASP.NET.
