copy files doesn't work on my host

don't know yet if this is an fyi or I'm missing something

this is for the mysql version, followed all the 7 parts of directions in the quick install guide, this seemed too easy :-)

with my host, smartasp.net, after copy all the files to a designated virtual directory (application) nothing runs just get the  dreaded error: "Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Optimization, Version=1.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.", 

they are advising me to use vs web publish which will be fun considering the size of mojo, 4500+ files all told in a vs website project 

I do have another application I wrote from scratch running on this host, that is published via vs, so I know at least that works, of course my project is an ameba compared to the size and complexity of mojo.  I believe vs publish when using ftp simply copies the files up but the copied files need to be a successfully built app/website, and vs knows just what to copy, for mojo I'm assuming the zip package is the same thing, eg. all the files from a successfully built vs project?

Re: copy files doesn't work on my host

Hi,

How you copy the files to the server shouldn't matter. If you're FTP-ing all of the files, it should run. Are you sure your host is providing you with a server that has .NET 4.6.2 installed?

Thanks,
Joe

Re: copy files doesn't work on my host

thanks for the reply,  I have to process error messages more  thoroughly in the future and I know better about that, ("The system cannot find the file specified.") duh!!!

I was literally missing the 'System.Web.Optimization.dll, somehow the filezilla upload missed it and 16 other .dll's so after I fixed that everything has come up ok, I am up and running but that has turned out to be easy part! due to your great attention to detail and code that actually works.

I have to say right now I'm struggling just to get a basic 4-5 page site up, was hoping to find a starter template type thing , but that doesn't seem to be applicable with mojo with what I have looked at so far. Hopefully once I get  few basics rolling like a master page things will roll a little better. .
