Help needed

Aug 13, 2012 at 9:20 AM

Hi,

I followed all the steps mentioned at

http://wiki.sensenet.com/index.php?title=How_to_set_up_development_environment

I was able to go from step 1 to 13. Was also able to go to step 14 (Set up IIS site). I have a confusion here for step 14. I was asked to visit another URL and step 3 and 4 were to be done. The path mentioned here on the seconf URL is '%sourceroot%\Source\SenseNet\WebSite' but on the previous URL it was 'C:\development\MyWebApplication\Source'

This is where I am bit confused. Also I found that the 'ROOT' folder remains empty after I run the bat file. Also the Solution that I created do not have any .aspx page in it. How should I make my new empty web project that I created run? The 'InstallMyWepApplication.bat' ran successfully.

What did I do wrong?

Thanks

Hi,

thank you for the comments. I have added some info that should clear the confusion at step 14. You will have to set up your IIS site to point to your website - which is where your web.config file is located. In the example it is c:\development\MyWebApplication\Source\MyWebApplication\MyWebApplication. So set the physical path of your iis site to this location, and that's it.

The 'Root' folder contains content that will be imported. It is empty, because the example only shows how to set up the initial working environment, from which you can start working on your project. While working you will create new files (ascx, html, etc.), which you will place in the Root folder MANUALLY, and after you've done that you can import these content to your repository, so that you can work with these content in your ECMS. Also, you can work with your Root folder the other way around: create content in the repository using Sense/Net ECMS, then export the created content to your solution's Root folder, and check them into the TFS so that your colleagues can import those into their repository.

To run your new empty web project, simply request the corresponding url you have set in the IIS, like http://localhost, and the main screen of your ECMS should appear.
