Have you tried searching the site? I found this question which looks to be an exact duplicate sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/17779/… –  Kit Menke Sep 1 '11 at 13:42

Should be a case of just deploying the WSP to the other farm. Are you have any problems in particular? –  James Love Sep 1 '11 at 13:42
    
i updated my question –  Abu Hamzah Sep 1 '11 at 14:51
    
The path to the WSP needs to be in quotes if it contains spaces –  Dave Wise Sep 1 '11 at 14:55
    
okay... so i create a folder(c:\Deployment\MyFirstWebPart.wsp) on root without any space and i still get the error, i have updated my question. –  Abu Hamzah Sep 1 '11 at 15:06

You would follow the standard deployment steps used for all Sharepoint WSPs. Copy the WSP to the file system of one of the servers in the farm, then open the SharePoint Management Console and execute the commands below. You will have to tailor the commands to fit your environment

Add-SPSolution fullpathtoWSP
Install-SPSolution –Identity NameOfWSP –WebApplication http://WebAppurl -GACDeployment

(give it time to deploy across the farm - you can check this status in Central Admin)

Enable-SPFeature -Identity "FeatureName" -Url http://SiteOrWebUrlForFeature

` Copy the WSP to the file system of one of the servers in the farm` what does server farm means? is that a location where i need to copy? - i am new to SP –  Abu Hamzah Sep 1 '11 at 14:30
    
Use whatever mechanisms you have at your disposal in order to copy the WSP file from your development machine to a windows folder on one of the machines that is part of the SharePoint farm that you want to deploy it to. If you are using Remote Desktop, then you can literally copy from the dev machine, open Windows Explorer on the server and paste it into the folder on the server. –  Dave Wise Sep 1 '11 at 14:36
    
thanks Dave, but my question what location do you want me to copy to? i will be copying from my local machine to VM machine and i am not sure what location should i copy to. –  Abu Hamzah Sep 1 '11 at 14:38
    
The location doesn't matter other than you will need to provide that path in your Add-SPSolution command –  Dave Wise Sep 1 '11 at 14:39
    
paste it into the folder on the server which folder/location should i copy –  Abu Hamzah Sep 1 '11 at 14:39
