I have setup my web server machine as a separate machine to the IO server. When logging onto the web server and then adding a deployment I get an error similar to the following:

"Error Saving Deployment: Ether the Citect project path or the web deployment preparation is invalid"

The following has also been checked:
- Users have adequate access permissions for both machines
- The appropriate project folders on the IO server have been shared with the Web server
- UNC or mapped drives will both produce the same result
- Navigating to the IO server file location is successful

As a result no projects can be added to a deployment from the web server. What is required to resolve this?

If the above have been checked and has not proved successful, you can try 'pushing' the files from the IO server to the Web server when the web preparation deployment is being executed. In other words this will copy the contents of the IO server ..\User\<Project_Name>\WebDeploy folder into the ..\deploy\<Project_Name> folder in the remote Web server machine.

To do this set the following in your citect.ini file:
DeployRoot = <path>

Where <path> is a location pointing to the deploy folder in your Web server machine. This can be configured using either mapped drives or UNC paths.
