    I have downloaded SiteFinity_2_5_1.exe and am trying to install the software.

    I am not able to access the Project Manager page, it asks me  to
     "Enter username and password for "" at http://localhost "

    what exactly should be entered as username and password.

    Thanks,
    Tushar

    Tushar,

    The Sitefinity Project Manager is using windows authentication with impersonation and the anonymous access is forbidden. By default, IE automatically authenticates the user with the currently logged on the client machine windows or domain user. In Mozilla Firefox it asks an username and password - a Windows or Domain account for the machine Sitefinity is installed on. In your case - at localhost, you should enter a an username and password you logged on the computer with.

    Greetings,
    Vlad

    Your explanation does not help. I changed my windows user account and added a password. I am logged under that same user. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Jesse,

    If your computer is in domain you should enter:

    Username: [DOMAIN name]\[domain account name]
    Password: [password]

    else you should enter:

    Username: [computer name]\[windows account name]
    Password: [password]

    Also make sure that the account you are logging with has appropriate permissions to the Project Manager folder (C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity2.7\ProjectManager).

    If the above doesn't help, please elaborate more about the problem you have.

    I am still having trouble accessing the project manager. I would really like to test the upcoming version, and I initially tried to install both 2.7 and 3.0 at the same time. Could this be why I am having this problem? Do you have any detailed installation manuals that I could look through?

    Hello Jesse,

    Unfortunately we still don't have enough information to tell you what could be the problem. Having v2.7 and v3.0 at same time is not the reason - I have all versions of Sitefinity on my PC and they are all working.
    Can you please send us more details about your problem?

    Kind regards,
    Vlad

    Vlad, I'm also haveing this same issue. I installed IIS per default parameters then installed Sitefinity 3.2. All went well. When I try to access the sitefinity executable and my firefox comes up with a prompt for username and password. I have tried as you suggesting with the Username: [DOMAIN name]\[domain account name]
    Password: [password] and Username: [computer name]\[windows account name]
    Password: [password], but to no avail. Is there something I'm missing here?  Thanks for any help you can give.

    Hi Luis,

    We are not sure what exactly do you mean by accessing the "Sitefinity executable", so it would be really helpful if you can elaborate a bit more on your issue.
    Our understanding is that after the installation, you are not able to login in the Sitefinity Project Manager, by requesting the following URL: http://localhost/telerik/Sitefinity3.2. The information provided by my colleague Vlad covers all possible scenarios for logging in the application. This is why we recommend you try once again logging in by using your own credentials on the PC. Make sure your password is not empty.

    Thank you for your time.

    Kind regards,

    I've received this error before, and I fixed it by making sure that the permissions in the webfolder (for example it might be c:\inetpub\wwwroot\sitefinity) are set to allow the ASPNET and the IUSR access.

    right click the folder and select properties, then Sharing and Security tab. there make sure the ASPNET and the IUSER_[yourcomputername] are allowed read access to the folder and all subfolders.

    hope that this was helpful!

    Hi Guys,

    I installed Sitefinity a while back and got it working with a lot of effort eventually.
    Once it is working, it is the most awesome CMS.

    I have however installed the latest version for 3.6 Hotfix. Firefox is asking me for a username and password and I have been through all the suggestions on this page as well as give that folder my own account access with full rights.

    Is there something I am overlooking here?

    Thanks,
    James

    Hello James,

    You should enter your windows credentials  to authenticate yourself or use IE. You can check Vlad's post from 3/30/2006 8:38:37 AM. You can find the following posts useful.

    All the best,

    Hi Ivan,

    Believe me, i have tried everything now. And if I try IE, I get

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


    I am running Windows XP Pro, SP 3. Sitefintiy 3 .6 SP1 Hotfix

    If need be, and if it would solve Sitefinity installations in future, I could allow you remote access to my machhine so that you can see what I mean?

    Thanks,
    James

    Hi James,

    Generally we proceed with Remove Desktop only in case we are sure that the problem could be related to any bug in Sitefinity or complex customer implementation that affects some of our code. Do you have problems running the project through cassini web server?

    Hi Ivan,

    I eventually opened the project with MS Visual Web Developer and then built the site which then started up the Web Server (Cassini). I was able to build a project but now when I try to edit the site I get an error:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    The resource cannot be found.

    Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

    Requested URL: /MyProject/Sitefinity/Default.aspx


    Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.3082; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.3082


    According to Microsoft's posts here they say that it's because of a trailing slash in my IIS. But I have done what they said and the problem still happens. Have you got any ideas why this happens?

    Hello James,

    The requested page should exist in the project. It makes a redirect to "~/Sitefinity/Admin/Default.aspx". Try accessing the dashboard typing the location above. If you are not logged in you should see the login screen.
