Orchard Installation

Oct 6, 2010 at 10:59 PM


I am trying to install Orchard locally so I can take a look at it and have a play around. However, I have got as far as filling out the installation fields including the connection string but on hitting the "Finish Setup" button I get redirected to http://localhost/orchard with a 405 error.

I am running IIS 5.1 and SQL Server 2005 on XP.

Can anyone help?

On a non-server OS such as XP, you can use the built-in web server from Visual Studio 2010 or IIS Express from WebMatrix. IIS 5 probably won't work and won't be supported.

Same here with XP + IIS6

Hi bertandleroy,

Thanks for the heads up. I am using Visual Studio's built in cassinni web server and all is working OK now.
