I am new to Umbraco and I am facing an Issue. I have source code(developed by someone else) of an umbraco website(already deployed) in which I have made some fixes just in views and now want to deploy it again on server through ftp. But I am not able, I have deployed a website before so can someone please help me from start how to do it.
Thanks in advance
What do you mean you are not able to FTP?
Do you mean... You don't know how to OR you can't, due to an error or something? Do you have RDP access by any chance?
Just trying to understand what the actual issue is you are having.
Hi Craig thanks for reply.
I am uploading website code using a software 'filezilla'. When it's done uploading, there are only files tree on my domain. I mean no page renders, just a tree showing like this
I don't even know which file to change before deploying. Basically I am very new to deploying. Sorry for my english
What is your hosting package?
Have you specified a default document in your web.config?
Have you also set up your database?
And have you updated your web.config to point to your live database?
I know it's not a hosting package issue.
I have not specified a default document. I'll follow this link to set a default document.
No I have not set my database again for deployment. Can you please guide me more about it.
You will need to deploy your database then and update your web.config file with the new Connection String.
Ensure all files have been copied up from Local to the Live server.
Have a google around, you will find loads of information about this.
Let me know how it goes for you.
I am trying to 'connect to Database' in visual studio where I enter my server name and db credentials(I created on my hosting account) but it keep saying login failed for username. So can you please tell me how to deploy my database or what i am doing wrong?
So your issue is connecting to SQL Server, NOT deploying it!
From the error message, you have provided... Either your username OR password is incorrect.
One way to test this quickly, instead of changing web.config and deploying all the time etc. is to test the connecting from SQL Management Studio with the same credentials.
Make sure all spelling and casing are correct.
It's a code of an already deployed website. So in local environment i am not able to use umbraco back office. I was trying to deploy Umbraco.sdf(in App_Data folder). I just wanted to put all scenario in front of you so you can tell if there is any other problem.
I'll test from SQL Management Studio and tell you if it worked or not
I have tried testing in SQL Management Studio and this is the error
Am not 100% sure about your setup/environment...
But are you sure that is the correct SQL server host? And do you have the correct permission for the user you are trying to login as (i.e. SA etc.).
Yes I have checked, User is assigned all roles. Moreover I tried to connect with another database on different server but same error appears
Hmmm, not 100% sure what could be the cause.
I have never seen this error before, I assume it is an issue with your environment/setup.
Sorry, I can't be more helpful.
No problem, thank you
Thank you so much for your help. I'll apply the changes and i'll let you know.
It also looks like you are missing a bunch of folders... (like Umbraco, Umbraco_client, etc).
if you are deploying from within visual studio, I think you need to add all of those folders to the project in order to have it work right. (there are other folders and files as well.
Actually it was not fully uploaded when i take screenshot therefore some folders were missing.
Just make sure you edit your connection string. If you are not too sure, you can contact your support team
Thanks for reply. I have already make changes in it. waiting for website to fully deploy and will let you know if it did work or not
This is what a typical folder structure looks like in my case:
