    Fresh Installation - Unable to install packages

    Hello,

    I have just done a fresh install on umbraco 4.7 and am getting an error when the installation step hits the skinning phase. I see an error Opps...Unable top connect to the package repository.

    This isnt the end of the world as i have my site in a package i can install. The problem is when i log into the site and try to expand the packages node it closes straight away and i can't install any packages?

    To install i have:

    Downloaded the lastest version of Umbraco 4.7
    Created new database and created a user
    Created a website in IIS

    I am running windows 7 with IIS7, sql server 2008?

    I have successfully installed this version of Umbraco on my other laptop but want to start using my new laptop so im trying to move it over.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    My guess is that you havent set alle the permissions right to folders?! :-)

    Hi,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I just added full permissions for NETWORK SERVICE on the root folder and i still can't open the packages node?

    Was this the correct? Are there other permissions to be added?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Have you tried to reinstall Umbraco?

    Are you sure you have all the right permissions to the root and subfolders? :-)

    I set up all permissions the same way like i have done it befor on the umbraco 4.5.

    Also during installation i got the error '

    Oops...the installer can't connect to the repository

    ' in Starter kit section.

    Okay... So you are trying to install the starter kit?! What if you try not to choose a template, but a totally clean version?!

    Follow this guide, especially permission sections in IIS 7. It was easy installation following this guide multiple times for me.

    http://our.umbraco.org/wiki/install-and-setup/how-to-install-umbraco-on-windows-server-2008

    You may also require permission to windows\temp folder for IIS_USR, I had this problem initially for installing some starter kit. Not remembering exactly.

    Thanks,

    Rajeev

    I have the same problem.

    I have seen that many people write in the forum with this problem.

    I have tried to install umbraco in windows xp service pack3 and windows server 2003 and it has always this problem.

    I followed all hints from the forum: checking internet connections, changing permissions of c:\windows\temp, checking permissions in IIS, changing permission of umbraco directories and files and other BUT I am not able to install Umbraco and then add a starter kit.

    Please tell me what I really need to do, I am tired to change permissions to half world to gain nothing.

    Thanks,

    Mario

    This might be a proxy issue - we had similar problems accessing packages and licences on our 4.7.2 installation. We finally got it working with some changes to our web.config file, details of which can be found here:

    Giving permissions to the Windows/Temp folder made this work for me.

    If App Pool IIS7+ is AppPoolIdentity then give permissions to IIS_IUSR

    If app pool identity is NETWORK_SERVICE then give windows/Temp folder permissions to NETWORK_SERVICE.

     

    It is a real pain, when you are starting Umbraco getting this issue, and it should 100% be covered in the setup instructions clearly.

    I would definately say its either of two problems.

    1. The application pool identity as Johnny Seven says above,

    2. Are you running behind a proxy server at all?  I have seen problems under this circumstance.

    Just had this issue after setting up on a fresh Windows installation (new SSD). Giving IIS_IUSR access to 'C:\Windows\Temp' solved this for me. Annoying little problem.

    Cheers
