Are you as annoyed as I am about the cost to host your LightSwitch applications on Azure? And as your number of applications increase, so does the cost. Not to mention the annoying spin up time for your application once it has been idled out.
But then again, what are the options? Visual Studio Publishing Wizard for LightSwitch no longer makes it easy to publish to 3rd party shared hosting. And even the method it does provide, there is little documentation on how to accomplish this. And THEN, what documentation is out there, seems to be way out dated and the instructions fail miserably.
What a mess.
Hopefully I can help you get back to being able to use shared hosting. I’m going to step you thru the process that I use with my own hosting provider. And show that once you are configured up, its really quite easy. And fairly inexpensive!
