SiteCore installation procedures and troubleshooting

18 Apr

Install IIS 6.0 or later (Start > Programs and Features >Turn windows features on or off)

IIS

Install SQL server 2008 express, and set the Authentication Mode to be “mixed”, use strong password, otherwise it will complain! Smile

  SQL4

Install the Sitecore using the setup package. The instance name is important and you will access the site and its control panel viat http://site/sitecore, where the name “site” is the input string you entered below.

setup1setup2

setup3setup4

setup5setup6

setup7setup8

setup9setupa

In certain senarioes, unfornately, you will find that the setup process is rolled back:

setupb

To solve this, in the “web server name” page, setup advanced option, change the .net version from 2.0 to 4.0

setup_advanced setup_advanced_1

Now the setup runs smoothly. And you will find a new folder named “MySite” is created beneath the inetpub\www\

Launch Sitecore:

ENJOY!
