Lets Learn Umbraco 2 - Installation


There exist several ways of installing Umbraco such as installing and configuring a webserver(e.g. IIS) and a database (e.g. SQL). In my opinion, the easiest way to install Umbraco is to use Webmatrix

If you want to go with the Webmatrix method, just follow the installation process, then, use the Webmatrix’s app gallery which consists of several open source projects such as Umbraco. Follow through the Webmatrix’s installation process until the end. In the end, webmatrix will open a new localhost site which is the Umbraco’s installation and configuration wizard if you are using a version that is older than version 7, if it’s version 7 or newer, it should direct you to the websites administration panel after it finishes automatic installation.
