    VS Website to VS Website Project

    Hello Umbrcians,

    I am very new to .NET domain and I have created a New Web Site in Visual Studio 2015, Installed Umbraco and build the website.

    I wanted to publish and upload on the server. I was told to change Website to Project in VS before publishing..

    Please advice how should I proceed. What are the steps to convert Website to a Project and publish.

    Awaiting your earliest solution.

    Hello and welcome to our.

    I think you will find a website is a project in VS?

    You can change your build from debug to release in configuration manager.

    You are correct, there are two ways of creating "websites" in Visual Studio. One is to create a "New Website" and one is to create a new "Web Application". The latter is what you want. When you go to File > New Project, you'll want to select this:

    Web Application

    Getting all your files from your website in to that web application will be a bit of a pain. I'd start by installing Umbraco into that project using NuGet. Once you've done that, then you can start migrating things over manually (copying files and such) and it'll be a bit easier.

    Mr. Nicho,

    I have created one project in VS and installed Umbraco freshly, then transferred the website folders to the Project

    I am thrown errors when I bulid the solution, most of the errors are about Duplicate.

    From Visual studio create a Empty project and using Nuget Manger add the Umbraco CMS package, this is the easiest way for Creating Umbraco project

    Mr. Manju,

    Earlier I created as New Website in Visual Studio and I am having problem with namespace.

    As per received advice, I have installed Umbraco and transferred the files, where I am thrown errors while building.

    Is that ok to proceed or to be fixed
