I have reached a point where I can start moving my SL project to a staging server for testing purposes. With my first few attempts, I have been changing the ServiceReferences.ClientConfig by mdifying from http://localhost/MyLocalSite/ to the web address in four projects - (In addition to the Silverlight project I have three business libraries). After compiling, I copy all the contents of the local website, except for the connectionStrings.config file, to the server website. I saw a dns setting in the Web.config file, so I also change that.
The Silverlight app does load without any errors but none of the content from my three business libraries is showing up. In other words nothing that is used for Binding comes up. I know the connection strings and database connections are okay because, one I have to log in; and two, before loading the Silverlight module there is an Asp.Net page with a list of subjects that come from the DB ant that is displayed in a DataGrid just fine.
Staging Web Server is Server 2008. Has no FrontPage extensions. ( I would rather do without them since they have become an orphan child already). I wonder if we could have a one, two, three of instructions about what to do for this. Thanks.
I misspoke. After compiling, It is the contents of the Release folder that I copy to the Server, not the contents of my local wesite.
I need urgent help, we are scheduled to have a teleconference with the customer the next day, to show the progress and get some feedback.
Additional Information: It looks like while from the Login page and Default.aspx, two different databases are accessed properly, the third database that is used exclusively by the Silverlight App is not being touched. The connection strings for all three databases have the same exact format except for the name of the DB, of course. On the development machine, there has never been a problem.
The trouble is, I don't know how I can go about debugging this issue. I would appreciate some suggestions.
