When we deploy our application as an IIS web application, we will use “Deploy an IIS Web Site” to create both IIS web site and IIS web application.
The deployment steps look like:
|Step||Step Name||Package ID||Deployment Type|
|Step 1||Create Web Site||DummyPackage||IIS Web Site|
|Step 2||Create Web Application||ApplicationPackage||IIS Web Application|
In step 1, what we want is to create and config an IIS web site, we use a dummy empty package as a workaround since in “Deploy an IIS Web Site” a package ID is required.
Is there a way that we can still use the “Deploy an IIS Web Site” to create and config a web site without using this kind of workaround? Since when we create a release, the DummyPackage is always there and creates confusion.
