  1. If you made a copy of one application as the base for another, be sure to delete the publishing profile, and then recreate it. This is because each application has a unique GUID, generated by the Publishing Profile. If you do not re-create the publishing profile, the GUIDs may be the same and this will cause security problems.
  2. Although you can publish projects directly to c:\a5webroot, it is always best to publish each project to a subfolder under c:\a5webroot.

  1. The value for Folder (see image below) under Publishing using FTP/LAN should be "projectname".
