Hi Good Morning Everybody,
I have two doubts...Here in our company we use FTP to upload files into the server.I joined here as fresher..What they do here is they publish the project in local system and upload the files into FTP...My doubt is while publishing Should we change the connection settings in web.config file as per server or else no need....These projects are already in implementation only Supporting is going on now..Some modifications are going on for some files...
Another Doubt is my system has visual studio 2005..Since it is old Am thinking to update my Studio..Will it support to that existing projects also..Any problem if I update my Visual Studio...

Updation of Visual studio we will not get problem you can do it.As your saying to change connection string you can do that by clicking a button before uploading by accessing tag of web config file.

VisualStudio supports the backward compatibility. It is not an issue.

If the server connectivity differs on moving to different environment, then you need to update in the web.config file. Otherwise, it will point to the older/previous server connection. It depends on your project requirement.

If the connection settings are not as it should be for the deployed website then you need to change it.

my system has visual studio 2005..Since it is old Am thinking to update my Studio..Will it support to that existing projects also.
When you try to use new Visual Studio, it will ask you to upgrade your project. Once upgraded, there will be change in assembly references. You need to make sure, post deployement all the needed assemblies are in place on server. To start with, correct .NET Framework.

If you go ahead for these changes, make sure you consult someone old in the project to get the insights and proper direction.
