To deploy your ASP.NET site to Linux, you can follow these steps:
- Make sure your ASP.NET site is compatible with Linux:
Ensure that your site is built using ASP.NET Core, as it is cross-platform and can run on Linux.
Make any necessary adjustments to your site's code if it relies on Windows-specific features or APIs.
- Prepare your Linux environment:
Choose a popular Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu, CentOS, or Debian, which tends to have better support for .NET Core.
Install the required dependencies and runtime on your Linux server for running .NET Core applications.
- Publish your ASP.NET Core site:
Open a terminal or command prompt on your development machine.
Use the dotnet publish command to publish your ASP.NET Core site:
dotnet publish -c Release -o
- Transfer the published files to your Linux server:
Use FTP, SCP, SFTP, or any other file transfer method to copy the published files to your Linux server.
- Set up a web server on Linux:
Configure a web server on your Linux machine, such as Nginx or Apache, to serve your ASP.NET Core site.
Configure the web server to proxy requests to your ASP.NET Core app running on a specific port, such as Kestrel.
- Start your ASP.NET Core app:
Open a terminal on your Linux server.
Navigate to the published folder where you transferred the files.
Start your ASP.NET Core app by running the following command:
- Verify the deployment:
Open a web browser and access your Linux server's IP address or domain name to see if your ASP.NET Core site is running correctly.
Note: Remember to ensure that your Linux server is properly secured and protected before deploying your ASP.NET site.
