Our monthly Virtual Happy Hour is happening this week, Fri Feb 23!
Hello!We are starting up a new EPiServer-project. I have a question about best pratices concerning setting up the project. Do I create the EPiServer-project from the visual studio EPiServer-project template and then check it in to TFS and let the other teammembers get the project from TFS? Or is it better to create an empty web site from the Deployment Center open the project in VS and check it in to TFS? I would think the best way for the project members to work on the project via the built in web server in VS. By doing so new project members could simply get the project from TFS and press the Run-button in VS, and start the application(assuming we have a common dev-database pointed out in the connectionstrings.config...)
Do you boys and girls have any tips?
I would say that both ways have their pros and cons essentially due to the fact that we have different web servers with different configuraton requirements.
As you say, it is quite common to have a shared test database and this can be setup using Deployment Center ("Install SQL Server database"). This can of course be accomplished with both approaches.
Hi! And thx for answer!Correct, after reading your answer I guess we should use the deployment center to create the project(we plan to use epistore and create+). The problem is: We cannot create an empty web site via the Deployment Center. See my other thread. Am I doing something wrong or why is it not working?
Thx for answer!
