Sample Website Installation Plan

The following guidelines explain how to install a website application.

Getting Started

It is recommended that you install and verify the software in your test environment prior to deploying it to your production environment.

Warning – When specifying an existing database as the installation target, this install process will replace that existing database. Be sure to back-up your existing database prior to installation in case you want to uninstall the solution and restore the original database.
