Installing Umbraco

This guide will list the required steps for installing Umbraco 7 on an ASP.NET hosting solution from Surftown. Please be aware that it is not possible to install Umbraco on PHP hosting packages.

1. Select the correct ASP.NET version. Make sure you have ASP.NET 4.0 or 4.6 in integrated mode selected and that 32-bit support has been disabled.

modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true
