    This is a place to discuss Web Hosting Gallery requirements (i.e. Spotlight requirements) and ask/answer questions about server setup and configuration.

    Documentation for the process is here:

    1. Install/configure required components.  Using Web Platform Installer or going about it manually, this article provides the necessary details to install and configure the correct set of server components.

    2. Validate server configuration.  We have built a small command line tool for you to run on your server to check and ensure that everything has been installed and configured correctly.

    3. Create a publishing Profile XML.  One of the new features in WebMatrix is the ability for a customer to load an XML file that contains all the necessary information to connect and publish their site.  This article walks you through the schema for this XML file.

    4. Format publishing information in your new account emails.  We will suggest how to format the credentials you send to new customers to make it easy for them to then enter the information in WebMatrix.


    We look forward to seeing your newly Spotlighted offers in the Hosting Gallery soon!
