Real World IIS: Adding Web Deployment Tool Support to Community Application ZIP Packages (videocast)

If you package your application in ZIP format, you can add Web Deployment Tool support to simplify the installation of your application on Windows. Our open source application partners (ASP.NET apps like DotNetNuke and PHP apps like WordPress) add this Web Deployment Tool integration as part of being included in the Windows Web Application Gallery (as defined in the Web App Gallery Principles).

This 12 minute videocast shows you how to:

  1. Start from a WordPress zip package without Web Deployment Tool support from the WordPress community site.

  2. Look at and add manifest.xml, parameters.xml and install.sql files to the WordPress package.

  3. Import the new modified WordPress package using the IIS7 Manager (the new "Manage Packages" action, powered by Web Deployment Tool). This validates that the WordPress app deploys easily and works using the Web Deployment tool integration for the new WordPress package.
