Posted by admin under General  sBlog.Net  sBlog.Net v2.0  on Feb 24 2013

To get started with this project, you need the following:

  • ASP.Net 4 Framework
  • Visual Studio 2010
  • ASP.Net MVC 3
  • MS SQL Server (or MS SQL Server Express)

Assuming, you satisfy the pre-requisites, follow the steps below to get started!

  • Download the sBlog.Net sources and open it in Visual Studio
  • Launch MS SQL server, create a new database for use by your blog - as an administrator or a user who has db_creator privileges. If the database was created by the user that is going to be used in the web.config file, skip the following steps to give db_owner access.
    • Then, if you don't already have a login, create a login
    • Now, you need to provide access to the newly created database for the user you created in the previous step
    • To do this, expand Security, then expand Logins, right click on the user your created, choose Properties
    • In the dialog that appears, choose User Mapping
    • In the right pane, select the database you created, check the checkbox corresponding to the new database
    • In the Database role membership section, choose db_owner, click on OK
  • Go to visual studio, expand the sBlog.Net project, open the web.config file and modify the connection string to use the new database, user you created
  • Hit on Ctrl + F5, you will get to the setup screen. Just follow the on-screen instructions from now on!

Hello Amit, Good to know that you got the blog installed! When you go to the page where you add a new post / page, if syntax highlighter is enabled, you will see a "syntax highlighter usage" link. Click on that find out how you could use the syntax highlighter! Hope this helps!

Hello Jezzy! This error just implies that your password is "not" strong enough. Just click on the ? mark next to the field and that will give you the requirements for the password! Hope this helps!
