Different types of DNN Installation Guide

There are two major types of installation in DNN as given below:

Steps involved in dotnetnuke installation Guide

Note: We are assuming that the installation is done on a Windows XP Pro machine running IIS 6.0/7.5, SQL Server 2005/2008, and the .NET 3.5/4.0 Framework.

Step 1. Identify your configuration - The first step in the installation process is identifying your hardware and software environment. Dotnetnuke installation requires certain prerequisites such as the DNN 6 version requires Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 or SQL Express, Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) 5+, IIS 7 is recommended and Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1. You must make sure that the above tools are smoothly executable on your machine.

Step 2. Download the dotnetnuke package - DNN 6.2 package can be downloaded from the link http://www.codeplex.com/ as displayed in figure 1. This link will navigate you directly to the installation package.
