    Instructions for installing Umbraco for beginners

    Hello community, I am a beginner to Umbraco, I have consulted a lot of Asp.Net CMS such as Kentico, mojoPortal or Orc-hard, in the end I still choose Umbraco when friends advise me through yowhatsapp. However, I need everyone's help. Please help me!

    Hi Johnnyhawk

    I think there will soon be a revamped version of the getting started section in the documentation, but in the meantime this is a fairly good starting point for installing Umbraco locally:

    But it's also possible to install Umbraco on a server, and only make updates via the backoffice - it depends on the size of your site and how you intend to work with it (there is also a fully hosted version of Umbraco supported by the core team called 'Umbraco Cloud' - - which has a no code solution called Uno).

    But if you are installing locally and working with Visual Studio as a developer, then yes, install it locally following the advice on the first link.

    Again there are a whole lot of nuances on how you deploy your solution to a production environment, it depends again on lots of factors, size of site, number of developers, source control, build server pipeline, hosting environment etc etc (Umbraco Cloud is designed to make this simpler, but as a result is slightly more expensive to host)

    There is some useful information here on 'source control' which also sort of accidentally explains the components that make up an Umbraco installation so this might also be useful!

    Good luck with your Umbraco adventure!
