Hello fellow hosters! This article builds on the previous article in the series.
I want to add in some Facebook support to my MojoPortal site. In order to do that, it is best to have a published site as some things only work on a published site. In this article, I am going to take the local MojoPortal website I have created in previous posts and useWebMatrix2 to publish it to the internet. I assume you already have your site open in WebMatrix2. I prefer to use WebDeploy as that makes publishing your database a piece of cake. You do need to make sure your remote site is setup for this, so that’s what I’ll do first.

I surprised myself by becoming quite a fan of WebMatrix, so I was keen to give the new WebMatrix2 beta a go and see how it shapes up.
I’ve found WebMatrix very easy to use and surprisingly robust. It gave me a very easy way to install and run my CMS websites locally and then to publish them, and also to resync my local environment to the published one. In particular note it allows publishing of an SQL database with just a tick of a box (once the connection string has been entered).
