Visual Studio 2008’s identity crisis during Web Publish?
I’ve been trying to publish up a few changes for the Web Gallery and keep getting an odd error on one of the images.
Unable to add ‘Images/filetypes/5.png’ to the Web site. The server sent a response which SharePoint Designer could not parse. If you are trying to connect to a Windows SharePoint Services server, check with the server’s administrator to make sure Windows SharePoint Services is installed properly.
SharePoint, meh? I have Designer, but it’s in a VM—while not as destructive as FrontPage, I still don’t like it on my main development machines. So… where the heck is that error coming from? My server doesn’t have WSS or MOSS installed on them—they’re just plain, old IIS 6 servers. In addition, none of the shares have FrontPage extensions loaded on them. Unfortunately, a Google search turns up nothing.
Thankfully, the site publishes just fine without that one image file. I have been FTPing it up (though it hasn’t been changing, so no biggie)..
Update: Maybe Publish is just quirky. Today I received:
Unable to add ‘SomeFile.aspx’ to the Web site. Could not find a Web server at ‘ftp.tiredstudent.com’ on port 21. Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly. If you are sure that everything is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service.
The odd thing is that the file was about 50% through the publish process—and the next file worked. Republishing also fixed the problem. Crazy.
