i am not getting how to run mvc app under iis not for deploy

Steps to deploy MVC application.

1) Changes in Web.Config, change connectionstring if you are using Windows Authentication mode then switch to SQL Server Mode in SQL Server Authentication,
Authenticate using user id and password.

2) use following connection string if you have hosted it on IIS
connectionString="Data Source=something;user id=something;password=something;Initial Catalog=databasename" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"

3 Once you have changed the connection string,

Change the user access rights of the project main folder,
a) right click folder,
b) go to Security, in security click Edit button
c) click Add,search for IUSR or current user of the system
d) click ok, provide full access rights to the newly add user

4) Publish your website as usual

5) Do all the changes and restart your IIS

Mark as answer if you find it useful!!Best of luck Smile | :)

For deploying web application to IIS through Visual Studio, follow the deployment steps as described in the following article-
ASP.NET Web Deployment using Visual Studio[^]

Hope, it helps :)
