It is Simple. Copy all the files and Paste it in the Directory on your server, if you are using a Database, you need to change the connection string to point to the SQL Server or Database server on the Server. and set the default document to the page you want.

Hi,

Microsoft always suggests to use the Visual studio publish option to publish a web site...once u publish that in a server u can simply copy the contents and move to n number of serves only thing we need to check the web.config in order to replace the conn strings for each and every environmnet

I think we have to take a backup of your site/application/form from central admin and restore into the production server.

Will it get all customized sites?
Am I right?
