Type in http://umbraco.local on your local machine and the Splash screen for Umbraco setup should appear on your browser...
To make it easier for any newbie to follow, I have added in some of the screen grabs as I went along setting up a Umbraco MVC Starter Kit
|Umbraco Setup screen detailing the tasks at hand|
- Accept the Umbraco License
- Setup a database
- Set an Admin password
- Install a starter kit
The option to use SQL CE 4 does not make it neccessary to provide connection details and login credentials as it would be needed for other database options provided.
|Database installation completed|
|Setting up an Admin password|
|Installing a Starter Kit - I opted out from installing any of the pre-defined ones|
The next step is to install a Starter Kit. If you need to install the MVC Starter Kit, you should choose not to install a starter kit. This will enable you to install the MVC Starter Kit later on.
|The initial backoffice screen after installation|
|Search and install the Standard Website MVC Starter Kit|
|Standard Website MVC Package Installation|
|License Screen for the Standard Website MVC Package|
|The initial Umbraco backoffice screen after installation of MVC package|
|The website soon after the package was installed|
Next on my list is getting this site up and running on a free hosting provider...
