Installing server-side “Web Site Administration Tool”


When you use Membership provider for user authorization in your .NET project, you have access to the Web Site Administration Tool (WSAT) from the Visual Studio IDE. But when you have deployed the web application to a test and/or production server, the WSAT web client can’t be used to directly maintaining the membership tables in the test and/or production enviroment.

Off course, you can maintain the membership provider tables directly in SQL Management Studio and do the SELECTs and  UPDATEs yourself, but there are an easier way of doing this.

I found this nice solution by Rahul Soni today on how to deploy the Web Site Administration Tool server-side
