I have a Sitefinity instance working locally; no errors, all fine.
I wanted to test a deployment scenario, where I publish from Visual Studio into a local folder where I already mapped in IIS to run the site at a defined hostname.
I wanted to see if I could use the "working code" with a fresh database.
However, during installation it didn't ask for creating an account. I checked the database for `sf_users` table, there were no records in it either.
So, what did I miss here? How could I install Sitefinity on a blank database?
I really appreciate any guidance here.
You need to force Sitefinity's installation process. You need to follow this step:
After that, you need to recycle app pool on your website. Then Sitefinity will ask you questions about DB connection, admin user and etc.
P.S. Removing configs will delete all yours Dynamic modules, and everything. It will be completely clean
