IIS Web App Deploy is NOT creating a new web site

I have followed the tutorial video, my package gets deployed via the listener tentacle; logs are all green saying it all worked; but I still have no new site. Reading the logs, it doesn’t appear to be even trying to configure IIS. Is there some checkbox I am missing?

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for reaching out!

Can you follow the below instructions to send us a deployment log? That should give us a glimpse of what’s going on and what could be missing:

1) Add these 2 variables to your project http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Debug+problems+with+Octopus+variables

2) Create a new release (so the new variables take effect) and deploy it. If possible skip as many steps as you can and only leave step we are troubleshooting in order to avoid the noise in the log.

3) Send us the raw log of that deployment http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Get+the+raw+output+from+a+task


Simply creating the new release “fixes” the problem. Do I need to create a new release, every time I change or update a process?

Correct. Changes only take effect once you create a new release.

If you just re-deploy a release, it’ll keep using the same snapshot of the deployment process over and over.
