Chapter 8. ASP.NET Configuration
When working with ASP.NET, you'll be called on to configure your ASP.NET applications. One major advantage that ASP.NET has over classic ASP is that most of the important configuration options for ASP.NET applications are stored in configuration files that reside in the web application directory. This makes it considerably easier to deploy an application from one server to another or to replicate an application across a web farm, since the application's configuration information will be copied along with the Web Form Pages, code-behind classes, and assemblies that make up the application.
