Re: WCF <-> DNN BLog Series Index

Good series,

So, how would you go about adding the same wcf service to a DNN site when you are unable to open the entire site with VS?

@ry,
There's no need to open the entire site with VS. You just need to have a reference to your DNN site in your module. The only piece of the DNN site itself that you need to change is the web.config and you can do that with notepad

Re: WCF <-> DNN BLog Series Index

Thx for the quick reply, and sorry about the double post.

So, I just create a custom DNN module that is nothing but a WCF service then edit the sites web config with my desired endpoints, binding and behaviors?

Re: WCF <-> DNN BLog Series Index

This works great on my development machine, but when I move it to the production server I get 404 File not found. What have I not done?

Thanks for all the groundwork.

Re: WCF <-> DNN BLog Series Index

I'm installing .NET 4 on the server - I think that might help.

Re: DotNetNuke and WCF Blog Series Index

i don't get it. Do you just modify the web.config with the new service information then copy the dll created in the bin folder over to the live site from the development machine? What, do you move or can you describe how to deploy this to a live web site?

Thanks!
