I've been trying to install Orchard to my normal Windows web server. I do not have access to desktop or anything else.

I've downloaded .zip file and send everything that is under /Orchard file to the ftp. But its not working.

Installations in documentation is not for smt like this and I've been unable to find any info on google.

Can anyone tell me how I am going to install orchard to my Windows Hosting?

I have currently this error,
Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".
<!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> <configuration>
    <customErrors mode="Off"/>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.
<!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> <configuration>
    <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

After I made the custom error = off,

I am getting

Server Error in '/' Application.

Security Exception

Orchard requires full trust, perhaps your server is running in medium trust?

That was it. I asked my server manager to give me full trust and now it is up and working.

Also,thanks for the great work you did on orchard.
