Standalone Configuration

To get yourself up and running quickly with the CMS, you can use it with the built in website host. Follow these steps: (The projects can also be executed from visual studio n debug mode)
  1. Create a database in SQL Server 2008 Express or Above, and copy the schema to the database from the MethodWorx.CMS.Database project. By default the system uses a database name called "CMS" however this can be changed
  2. Publish the MethodWorx.CMS.UI project to IIS
  3. Publish the MethodWorx.CMS.WebHost project to IIS
  4. If you are not using the database name CMS, or the database is not on your local server you can set the connection string the appSettings of the web.config file of MethodWorx.CMS.UI, and the WebConfiguration section of MethodWorx.CMS.WebHost project
  5. Attempt to log in, if the database is empty it should create a default user with the username: admin and password: admin
