I have a ASP.NET app (4.6.1) and i installed via NuGet the 51Degrees.mobi-web (22.214.171.124). I see this created all the necessary files, including the 80+MB 51Degrees.dat file in the root of App_Data.
GIT has detected all these files but I'd like to NOT store the large 51Degrees.dat file in GIT and instead have .NET regenerate/download this file if it detects it missing (LITE).
Is this feasible? What is the recommendation for source control when using 51Degrees?
I tried deleting/renaming this file and starting the app but nothing happened (didn't regenerate). Though this could be due to some other issue, as I can't yet confirm the system is working yet. The App_Data folder has full permissions to the user that is the Identity for the given App Pool.
Thanks for the guidance as we evaluate this product.
