I downloaded the nopCommerce 4.00 source today, ran it in VS 2017.latest. I setup a database and it went through the install, all looks good with demo data.
Now I want to publish this to my server and run it there as I will when it's time to move from development to production. I used web deploy and published but when it runs I get the install screen again. It doesn't know of the database connection and I'm not sure what else. I looked at the docs and there is no topic that I found on publishing your site.
Please outline what is the proper way to publish to a server and what files need to be uploaded, included, or configured so that I can run development locally and publish and test production when ready to deploy.
