Moreover DotNetNuke is very easy to install on your PC. So the discussion this time. I will discuss how to install DotNetNuke on your PC. In general, DotNetNuke installation process does not take more than 15 minutes. But if you encounter an error, please check the back, make sure you have meet the minumum requirements for hardware and software you have to install DotNetNuke.

How To Install DotNetNuke 7 on your PC?

  • Create a folder on a Web server where DotNetNuke will be executed. For example, in this manual use the folder C: \ DotNetNuke, however, you can choose the location and name of the other. Set permission on this folder so that IIS uses the account "Full Control".

If IIS has not got the permissions "Full Control", right click on the root folder. Click "Sharing and Security" followed by the Security tab. If the Security tab does not exist, you have to "turn off" file sharing simply by choosing Tools> Folder Options, and then click the View tab. Uncheck the option "Use simple file sharing" and click OK. You can now right-click the root folder and access the Security tab

On the Security tab, tick-related accounts that have permissions "Full Control" to this folder (Windows XP using the account ASPNET and other editions of Windows using the account NETWORK SERVICE).

  • If you are using SQL Server, it is necessary to configure the DotNetNuke order to access the database. To do this open the file C: \ DotNetNuke \ web.config using Notepad application.

 Note : If you use the SQL Express configuration, there is no need for additional configuration INSTALL package is configured to use SQL Express by default.

  • Remove the following line at the connectionStrings:
    <Add name = "SiteSqlServer" connectionString = "Data Source =. \ SQLExpress; AttachDBFilename = | DataDirectory | Database.mdf; Integrated Security = True; User Instance = True" providerName = "System.Data.SqlClient" />
  • Delete this line in the appSettings:
    <Add key = "SiteSqlServer" value = "Data Source" =. \ SQLExpress; AttachDBFilename = | DataDirectory | Database.mdf; Integrated Security = True; User Instance = True "/>
  • Delete and edit the following line in the connectionStrings section to match the host name Database server and access your identity:
    <Add name = "SiteSqlServer" connectionString = "Server = (local); Database = DotNetNuke; uid =; pwd =;" providerName = "System.Data.SqlClient" />
  • Delete and edit the following line in the appSettings section to match the host name Database server and access your identity:
    <Add key = "SiteSqlServer" value = "Server = (local); Database = DotNetNuke; uid =; pwd =;" />
  • Save and close the web.config file. You can also store backup files with names web.config.bak as a precaution when the installation process fails and you need to start over.
  • Open the IIS Management Console application Start> Control Panel> Administrative Tools and expand Default Web Site. Create a new Virtual Directory named DotNetNuke then navigate to the folder C:\DotNetNuke. You can choose another name for the Virtual Directory liking (if you do, it needs to be adjusted on the instruction "DotNetNuke Wizard")

Umbraco 7.2.8 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Reset Umbraco Password?

clock March 30, 2016 23:11 by author Anthony

Every computer user both desktop and computer connected to the network would have to know the username and password. Username is your identity to enter into a network, including ATM networks. While the password is the key to your username can be identified and can enter the network.

Username and password are very useful and should not be underestimated, because if your username and password known to other people, then all the data and systems that you have can be problematic. Therefore username and password is one of the important facilities in the computerized system. Besides passwords should be updated or updated at any time. For the system to which you have remained safe and comfortable.

The requirement to use a password:

  • Use a password that's at least 8 characters mixed with numbers and uppercase and lowercase letters.
  • Do not show while typing passwords on those around you.
  • Always remember your password.

Passwords are the key words that you have to remember, but there are times when you forgot your password. In this article, I will discuss how to reset the password on Umbraco 7 manually via database.You try to log into Umbraco but it turns out your password is incorrect. Not a problem as long as you have access to the database and filesystem. 

The first thing you should do is open SQL Manager later locate the folder umbracoUser. Umbraco user passwords stored in your database Umbraco in the umbracoUser table, in userPassword column.

In the table, look for your account to be reset, and make a note to Id you want to update. The password will be encrypted for security reasons, and the password will be stored as a hash for security. So we can not just simply typing long passwords in plain text and expect to get the results directly. We need to know the hash code for several common passwords.

1
2
userPassword Value :   /7IIcyNxAts3fvQYe2PI3d19cDU=
Password :             password
1
2
userPassword Value :   d9xnUXsUah9gycu7D0TpRYcx19c=
Password :             admin
1
2
userPassword Value :   bnWxWyFdCueCcKrqniYK9iAS+7E=
Password :             default

But Umbraco using hashing simple with just a few lines of code. You can generate your hashed password and put it in the user table Password column in umbracoUser table for your user account.

  1. string password = "mypassword";  
  2. HMACSHA1 hash = new HMACSHA1();  
  3. hash.Key = Encoding.Unicode.GetBytes(password);  
  4. string encodedPassword = Convert.ToBase64String(hash.ComputeHash(Encoding.Unicode.GetBytes(password))); 

You just use the generated hash the password and then update records in the table. After that you can log back into Umbraco with your new password.
