    Dear Sir,

    I am no IT people but lately I have given the role to monitor the department's website. Obviously, why I am writing here is that the website uses sitefinity but problem rises.

    The problem is simple. The server administration (belongs to the mother organization) do not allow enough access to the server , hence I am not able to edit the pages with the sitefinity pages online. They wanted me to design the webpage in my own system and then upload it to the server using some SFTP thing.

    So I am hoping to transfer the whole website(together with the sitefinity package) to my system and then uses the sitefinity administration page to edit the pages. (Eventhough maybe that means I need to download and upload the whole thing whenever I need to update the website.)

    But as I said, I have no IT background, I don't know what asp is, and don't know how to setup server. And the company, who designed the website for us, refuses to do anymore aftersales service. So I'm stuck.

    Could you tell me if my method is usable? or what kind of thing I should do? just gimme the direction, I'll figure out the rest.   Hopefully.

    Looking forward for your reply.

    Hello Ben,

    Since all pages are stored to the database you need to get a database backup and restore it on a local server. Then FTP all files to your local server and change the project's web.config to point to your SQL. You could take a look at our system requirements and documentation.
