After you install Sitefinity CMS, create your project, and activate your license, you must open it in a browser to set it up.
The Project Startup wizard appears in a web browser.
NOTE: If you do not have an SQL Server Express installed on your computer, you can download it from www.microsoft.com/express/database/
NOTE: If you want to install your project to Windows Azure, select Microsoft SQL Server to work locally. Later, you will migrate the local database to SQL Azure. For more information, see Deploy projects to Windows Azure.
IMPORTANT: If you want to use MySQL, you can have multilingual scenarios only in split tables mode. Fore more information, see Administration: Persist multilingual fields in separate tables for each language.
NOTE: If your website is going to use non-Latin characters, you must verify that the MySQL Server option default-character-set is set to utf8. You can do this during the installation process or, on a later stage, by editing the my.ini file, which, by default, is located in C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server VERSION\.
Sitefinity CMS passwords must be at least 7 characters long and is recommended to
contain at least one number and one special character, for example, admin@3.
