It has been a while since I blogged, I would like with you guys the process of installing Sitecore 9. It is a different process there is no SIM, most of the steps are manual.

So what have I installed prior to proceeding with the installation process:

  • Windows 10 machine
  • IIS
  • .NET
  • .NET Core 2.0
  • SQL
  • SQL Management Studio

Also you need to adjust some security settings on your Windows Machine

net user administrator /active:yes
net user guest /active:yes
net user administrator *

Before we jump into the next step, lets download the source files. So what you will need:

Also you will need to add some stuff to the IIS, if you dont have it already:

  • Web Deploy 3.6 for Hosting Servers
  • URL Rewrite

We are going to run all of this in the Windows Power Shell.

First step will be to register the repository:

Register-PSRepository -Name SitecoreGallery -SourceLocation https://sitecore.myget.org/F/sc-powershell/api/v2

Next we will install the Sitecore Installation Framework

Install-Module SitecoreInstallFramework

Next we will install Fundamentals

Install-Module SitecoreFundamentals

After that we will move onto installing Solr

From your Power-shell run the files that you have downloaded Lazy-Solr.

Make all your configuration changes, as needed. Pay attention to the JAVA_HOME path, make sure everything is reflected correctly.

Solr should run automatically once installation is completed. https://solr.8983/solr/#/

Once that is completed and everything looks good, lets move on to the next step, the Sif-less step.

Extract SIFless.zip and run as administrator the SIFLess.exe

Fill out all the necessary parameters: Should look something like this.

After you click on to the Generate Files, it will generate Powershell scripts in the same directory where SIFLess.exe is. You will go ahead and run that ps1 script. Once you run the script and installation is successful, you should be to access it, from the browser at the following URL:

http://xp0.sc

  1. Hiya,

    This fails :

    Register-PSRepository -Name SitecoreGallery -SourceLocation https://sitecore.myget.org/F/sc-powershell/api/v2

    with

    Register-PSRepository : The term ‘Register-PSRepository’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script
    file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct
    and try again.
