This step-by-step article discusses how to disable debugging for ASP.NET applications.
ASP.NET supports compiling applications in a special debug mode that facilitates developer troubleshooting. Debug mode causes ASP.NET to compile applications with extra information that enables a debugger to closely monitor and control the execution of an application. Applications that are compiled in debug mode execute as expected. However, the performance of the application is affected. To avoid the effect on performance, it is a good idea to enable debugging only when a developer is doing interactive troubleshooting. By default, debugging is disabled, and although debugging is frequently enabled to troubleshoot a problem, it is also frequently not disabled again after the problem is resolved. This article describes how to disable debugging for an ASP.NET application.
