I have two live servers with there own publisher and incoming directories. Most of the time there is no issue when publishing, although sometimes the HTTP IIS deployer instance is not available. If this is the case, the publishing fails as expected. The problem I am having is that the aspx page file that was supposed to be republished, is now gone. Is this standard behavior? Could it be that the roll-back not work anymore when the IIS deployer goes offline? Does the ASPX file normally get overwritten, or is it deleted before the new file is placed?
P.S. We do use a deployer extention that edits the file that is being published. But this happens in the first step after the ZIP file is unpacked and ready to be deployed.
