Can't publish the project to local IIS

  1. Avatar of AAziz

    I'm trying to publish the project to an IIS. I have followed the instructions but it gives me white page. I give the Network services to DB and IIS pool but still response with white page. in addition I want to know if I want the way how to change the DB.

    Hello AAziz,

    You can change database connection string in your Web.config section, under <connectionStrings> tag.

    If the page appears to be empty, you need to enable detailed errors to see what's wrong

    Which version of MVC does your project use? Formally we support 4.0 and there may be issues with newer versions
