Installation of version 2.3.4.5

Followed this script and still get an error for page not found:

Note: This installation requires SQL 2005 database add-on.

1. Download the latest release files for mojoPortal MS SQL installation. Note: Currently this is mojoportal-2-3-1-6-mssql-deploymentfiles.zip (2-3-1-6 is the current version subject to change in future versions).

2. Unzip this file on your local machine and you will see a wwwroot folder.

3. Go to the wwwroot folder and find the Web.config file. Open this file with your favorite text editor such as notepad. Find the following text inside this file:

< add key="MSSQLConnectionString" value="server=yourservername;UID=yourusername;PWD=yourpassword;database=yourdatabasename" />
and replace the values yourservername, yourusername, yourpassword and yourdatabasename with those from your DiscountASP.NET account. You can find that information under Database Management in Control Panel (or go there directly by clicking one of the following links: SQL2008 or SQL2005).

4. Using an FTP client, connect to your site at your host. Upload all the files from the wwwroot folder to the root or to a subdirectory of your site. If you will be running multiple ASP.NET applications, we recommend moving files to a subdirectory of your site.

5. Login to your Control Panel and click on the "IIS Tools" link, then click the "Default Documents" link - move Default.aspx to the top of the list like this:

default.aspx
index.html
index.htm
index.asp
index.aspx
default.htm
default.html
default.asp
6. If you have uploaded the files to a subdirectory, make that directory an application starting point using the Web Application Tool.

7. Make sure the /Data folder is completely writable by the web process, set permissions on this folder if needed.

8. Visit http://YourHostedDomainName.com/Setup/Default.aspx to complete the installation, it will run all the needed database scripts and other configuration (if you installed in a subdirectory; http://YourHostedDomainName.com/subdirectory/Setup/Default.aspx.

Note: use Internet Explorer for the step above. You will not be able to perform the installation with Firefox or Google Chrome either for that matter

which was probably the issue I encountered here.

9. Login with admin@admin.com and the password: admin, then click the "My Profile" link to change the password and secure your new site.

There are other settings in the Web.config that you may wish to edit for things like SSL and SMTP.

If you have any difficulty or questions, please post in the Mojoportal forums.

Re: Installation of version 2.3.4.5

Hi,

Where did you find that set of instructions? The current version of mojoPortal is 2.3.4.8 and we do not recommend setting your database connection string in the web.config but rather the user.config. Also, there is no limitation on which Browser you use for running the Setup page.

You should follow the instructions located here: http://www.mojoportal.com/installation-quick-start.aspx.

HTH,
Joe D.
