DNN Installation

A case study

DNN Installation – Ace-Dnn is fully involved in DNN administration in each field including up-gradation, migration, skinning and development. Here, in the following case study we are sharing some important DNN installation guidelines that are being followed by us such as:

The Environment we currently work on:

  1. Server Type(Windows Server - VPS or Dedicated)
  2. Operating Systems (32bit/64bit)
  3. Dot Net Framework version(2.0/4.0)
  4. Hardware specifications (RAM/HDD/CPU)
  5. Firewall Status (In-built/External)
  6. Modules Integration (In-built/Third Party)
  7. DNN version (4.X/5.X/6.X)
  8. DNN Portals (Parent/Child)

 

We use the local server for the development work of a DNN site; while the cloud server is used by our company for live functioning of a website.

Communication Method that we prefer to communicate with:

  1. Skype
  2. Mikogo
  3. Teamviewer
  4. Gotomeetings

 

IIS and databases used with DNN

  1. IIS Details (6.0/7.0)
  2. MSSQL Database versions (2005/2008/2008R2)

 

What are the steps to be followed for DNN Installation?

We follow strict guidelines when it comes to the DNN installation. However, keep in mind that this installation is intended for a development environment and not for production. It's safe to assume that additional security measures will need to be taken before employing IIS or any of the other components in a production environment. Some of the common steps that our company follows with DNN installation are:

1. Downloading source code and extracting it.

DNN Installation

After extracting, rename it to "test_DNN".

2. Create DB.

DNN Installation

Open MSSQL Management Studio and right click Database and Click New Database.

DNN Installation

Then, create DB with name "test_DNN"

3. Configure to IIS.

DNN Installation

Open IIS and right click sites and click Add web Site.
