    Manual Install of Umbraco

    I have unzipped the binaries to the following environment

    • Windows Server 2008 R2
    • IIS 7
    • SQL 2008 R2
    • Visual Studio 2013

    My question is: Where is the install wizard?

    I have set up a virtual directory in IIS and then converted it to an application. I have given rights to the main folder and all subfolders to my own domain admin account, I have created an empty database and created a SQL Server authenticated admin account with db ownership role. I have looked for a Setup.exe or other binary to start installing but cannot locate one. Am I missing something?

    Do you have the /umbraco and /umbraco_client directories yet? Or did you just install the /bin?

    What happens when you try to hit the site in a browser?

    My favorite way to install umbraco is via the nuget packages. You could try that as well.

    Install-Package UmbracoCms
    

    That should give you all of the files you need to run through the installation wizard in the browser.

    When I try to open the site (application directory) in IE browser I get a 401.2 Unauthorized error.

    Are you able to load any of the umbraco backoffice? Try giving IIS_IUSRS access to the folder and subfolders maybe? What user is the App Pool running under?

    Does this look relevant at all? http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-6346

    I haven't tried putting Umbraco in a virtual directory, but I've heard about some issues. It sometimes helps to tweet links to these forum posts to #umbraco.

    Thanks for the quick response. I am totally new to Umbraco and am simply trying to demo this and other open source cms systems to decide which way forward for developing a company intranet, So I have questions like:

    • What is the backoffice?
    • When the other technologies install this package (NuGet, WebMatrix, etc.) what scripts get run to create the db tables and content folders?
    • Should I create a solution in VS2013, and try to run the site there? Or try to create an install solution there?
