[Mono-aspnet-list] How to deploy ASP.NET project from Visual Studio to Mono?

A noobish question to be sure, but I've extensively searched Mono's site and
MSDN and haven't come up with a description of how to go from working in VS
to deploying in Mono. I'm developing a relatively simple MVC web app in
VS2015 that works with MySQL DB that I will then handoff to an Apache w/
Mono server owner and want to make sure it is deployed properly (neither of
us have experience with Mono before).

Let's say I go through the MVC tutorial on MSDN and create a web app project
called MvcMovie that is found in "...\Documents\Visual Studio
2015\Projects\MvcMovie" within this directory are folders ".vs", "MvcMovie",
"packages" and the solution file. I have several questions:

-To make sure it works in Mono do I need to do a special build in VS2015 or
does the default build settings work just fine?

-For deploying the app do I just zip up everything in ...\Projects\MvcMovie
w/ the exception of the solution file and then tell the owner to unzip it in
a particular directory within Mono?
  --The Mono documentation says "If the prefix used to configure XSP was
/usr, the sample [ASP.NET] files are located in /usr/lib/xsp/test." So
reading inbetween the lines, would the Apache server owner unzip in
"[...]/lib/xsp/" and that would be all that was required for deployment?
