Umbraco 7 first look and installation

I’ve recently been involved in a project deploying an open source .Net based CMS called Umbraco. It’s been interesting to compare it to more mature products like Microsoft SharePoint and in particular the web content management features.

First step is to install from source, this is a quick post to show the installation steps:

1) Grab the source (7.0.1) from GitHub
Um7GitHub

2) This is how the 7.0.1 source tree looks:
Um7Solution

3) Initial install screen
InstallOne

4) Accept the license
InstallTwo

5) Tell the installation about your database
InstallThree

6) Install the database
InstallFour

7) Setup login details
InstallFive

8) Starter kit screen
InstallSix

9) Install a starter kit (or not in this case)
InstallSeven

10) Complete the setup.
InstallEight

I’ll be looking more at Umbraco 7 and how the development process works, this will happen in future posts.
