Deploy to a specific web application


Ive added the wsp to sharepoint but when deploying it from the SharePoint administration site, it seems that its only possible to deploy globally to the whole server?

I wanted to test this in separate web app before deploying it to one that users access.

I know its possible to deploy to a single web application using the install spsolution cmdlet but am weary of trying this incase it deploys globally as indicated by the SP Admin app.

I am afraid this is how it works currently. You are more than welcome to download the source code and change the scope.

Also note that you can activate the feature on a single site collection (even though it is deployed globally) to test in a single site.

Ive deployed it but cant figue out how you enable the menu?

ive checked and can see other users have had similar issues but still not sure where specifically this would be.
