Web Applications Stopping On Deploy

I have set up a project that simply copies files into a web application folder. When it does this, other web applications fault and stop.

Now this could be down to some dodgy programming, but, if I manually copy the files over, then everything is fine…What is happening that I cant see?


Thanks for reaching out! Couple of questions about your setup:

  • When you say “web application” you mean “IIS Web applications”, right?
  • Which version of Octopus are you running?
  • Could you send us your deployment log? feel free to mark this conversation as Private if you want to keep the shared files between you and our staff.
  • Is this happening in all your Tentacles or just in a handful?


Hi Dalmiro,

Thanks for getting back to me. The issue I have is not octopus based, so I will close this topic.
