Installation

Maybe I am missing something but the only docs I can find on installation is very limiting.

Right now I have used the IIS/Visual Studio 2010 install approach. It is installed to the point where it is asking me for a userid/password and I cannot find any documentation on this. Any userid/password that I enter says that it is invalid.

Also, how do I set up a SQL Server database for this?

Hi,

when you ran the web application (Composite C1) the first time you were greeted with a Start wizard, where you selected language settings, default site and username / password for the default admin account. You should use that account to login. If this is not the case, please provide me with info on what you downloaded / how you ran it the first time.

For reference, check this video showing the setup procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y12dPpc4egA - here WebMatrix is used, but the Start wizard experience should be the same across WebMatrix, IIS and VS2010.

About SQL support, please see http://compositec1.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=230691 - in short the 'dynamic SQL provider' plugin from Composite is not free open source, but a commercial add on. Feel free to add you feeling about that to the thread.

 

Thanks

Marcus
