In this next step we will assume that you have tested your application on the development web site and you are now ready to deploy it to the production web site.

Since you application has already been published to Alpha Cloud (and deployed to the Development web site), we don't need to go through the publish step again. We can just deploy the previously published application to the Production web site.


Start by selection the Deployments command:


This will bring up the Deployments dialog. Select the Production deployment in the Deployment, Name dropdown box.



Then click the Add to Schedule button to schedule a new deployment for the Production web site.

This will add a new row to the Deployments table. You can specify the version of the application (currently set to 1) and the version of the Alpha Anywhere server (currently set to build 6315) that you want to use for you deployment.

You can also specify when the Deployment should become active (currently set for immediately, but you can schedule deployments for the future) and you can specify how long the deployment is active (currently set to Perpetual)




Once you have filled in all of the details of the new scheduled deployment, click the Apply Changes button.


When you close this dialog, Alpha Cloud will being executing the steps to deploy version 1 of your application to the production web site. Since you may want to watch progress as your application is being deployed, click the Show Cloud View on Close before you close this dialog.

The Cloud View dialog will come up and it will show the steps being performed. Once the deployment is complete, you can click on the Web Site Link hyperlink to open your production web site in your browser.
