Hello, I need to figure out why when transferring orchard in web deploy with web matrix, it works, but if I use the ftp transfer with web matrix does not work .. Why did this thing happen?

Maybe your ftp transfer was incomplete or had failures. Impossible to know with that little information. But it does work usually: I've done it countless times.

I noticed that if I was using the web deploy everything worked, using the ftp transfer the first error I received was on the root of the web config .. I thought it depended on the type of protocol used to synchronize ..

Thanks for the reply

Did the errors happen during the transfer, or the transfer succeeded but you could not launch the site?

That's right, a successful transfer ftp.
Recalling the site to me the errors of the web config, I also associated write permissions on the folder app_data .. Using the web deploy no errors everything ok

Ah, yes, Web Deploy can take care of permissions for you, ftp can't, as it's just doing file transfers. So yes, you need a properly configured site on the other side, in particular permissions need to be set-up properly on app_data, media, modules and themes.
