So I have my solution with several Projects
I read your post about "Deploying solutions with multiple web projects on AppHarbor" (
and followed the solution file convention

But i am getting the message "Welcome to nginx!" when the deploy is complete

I read on this discussion "Build is active but dont deploy" (
that the Project type might be configured as Class Library, In my case it was, so I tried
to change it to "Windows Application" but I received a compilation error when deploying

So what can I do in order to fix this issue and be able to deploy my application?

My last deploy is

Thanks in advance for your help

    I took a look at the most recently deployed build, and it looks like an issue with the web.config configuration file. In particular, it's missing the system.web\compilation. Try adding that and deploy the application again (might be as simple as adding the relevant line in the system.web element like this example:

         <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.5.2">
         // Your existing configuration

    Thanks for the assistance
    I made the changes you suggested on my web.config file and I'm still getting the "Welcom to nginx" message

    I made the changes on this file:
    because its the one on the root of the Web Application, and nothing happened

    So I also made the changes on the other web.config files I have on the project
    Still getting the welcome to nginx message
