So I've built and tested a site only using localhost to view it, so far.
I want to now publish the site to a domain.
I've got a subdomain setup with Godaddy.
I know that I can use a FTP client to get the files on the server.
But my question is what do I have to do to setup the domain/subdomain for the site to work on it?
Any advice would be most appreciated :)
Press please right button on the root node of your site and select "Culture and Hostnames" item. Here you can add domains for each root node in your site.
How many domain/subdomain do you need?
What is the structure of your site?
Sorry think i didn't explain it properly, i've created the subdomain and published my site/files from Visual Studio to the domain BUT just can't get it to work.
Tried numerous things and keep getting stuck at different errors (Read things like changing bits in the web.config file etc) and just won't run
Does anyone know of a step-by-step method for uploading a site from scratch to a host server?
First off, running umbraco at GoDaddy is a pain. But it can be done. The performance isn't great though.
I can't remember exactly how I got it working when I tried it, but I think you can set permissions (read/write/modify) on the folders via GoDaddy's online tools or via FTP. GoDaddy does not set the permissions when you upload, and this is probably why you run into problems.
It will most likely be permissions on the folders that Umbraco needs to write to.
See the following:
I have recently Upload my Umbraco Project on GoDaddy Hosting
That's it. Hosting of Umbraco is same as any other MVC application on Godaddy
Great tutorial how to upload files to Godaddy, agree with you, usually it not a problem at all.
Check if your domain has the requirments needed for it to host an Umbraco site:
