Unable to debug published ASP.NET website

Have been struggling to debug ASP.NET application but had no success what so ever. For time being drop the thought of publishing the website using Visual Studio (2005/2008/2010).

Lets start with the Manual process :-

1. Create a folder under C:\inetpub\wwwroot for eg: MyWebsite
2. Goto IIS, right click on Default Website -> Select Add application
3. Specify Alias, select location, select the required application pool and select OK
4. Now goto Visual Studio, right click on the website -> Publish
5. Go back to IIS and select the application created "MyWebsite"
6. double click on Authentication
7. Now select the following:-
- Anonymous (Enabled),
- Impersonation (Disabled),
- Basic (Disabled),
- Digest (Disabled),
- Forms (Enabled)
- Windows (Disabled)
Note: Assuming web.config is configured to use forms authentication
8. Restart default website.

All of this seems quite easy and looks very familiar. But a small mistake in configuring correct authentication might lead to frustrating situations.

The more you know, the more you realize you know nothing.
