Identifying the UI / Util URL


I recently started working on a project that I have not been in contact with from the start and since developing for EPiServer is quite new to me, I have a couple of thoughts / questions regarding the approach I need to take.

For starters; How do I identify the UI / Util-path? In the web-config I found the siteSettings-tag with the attribute uiUrl to uiUrl="http://localhost:7117/customerUI/"

However when I start it up, I get a 404 at that address ( http://localhost:7117 works )

Any thoughts on that?

Second I am looking for information about deployment capabilities with episerver/vs2008 if I do not have direct contact with the production server, hence the site is for internal use only where I cant access it. Is it possible to create some sort of a Setup project as you can with WebServices in general? If so, what should one think of while doing it?

Hope there's someone with answers out there!

http://localhost:7117/customerUI/edit and http://localhost:7117/customerUI/admin are the paths for Edit and Admin mode. When it comes to deployment, I usually use a tool called UnleashIt, I've a blog post describing how to use it here: I've also been looking at Web Deploy, but haven't gotten around to testing it out yet :).
