    Hello,

    We are in the midst of getting a client set up with a Sitefinity website. The client has purchased and downloaded Sitefinity, but are now reluctant to install it on their server. They are hoping that we will install Sitefinity on our own server and then push the site (and the SF CMS) to their server once the project is complete.

    Is this possible? Or would we need to purchase a separate version of Sitefinity to house on our own server?

    Thanks,

    Jeff Paul

    Hi Jeffrey,

    It does not matter where you will install Sitefinity, because the license key is generated per domain name. So, the important part here is where you will host the website.
    Generally the procedure is as follows

    1. Install Sitefinity on a local machine and create the project
    2. Migrate the project to your production server.

    Thanks for the help, Ivan. Are there instructions somewhere that explain how to move the project from our server to the production server?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Hello Jeffrey,

    Here are the steps

    1. Create a backup of your database
    2. Zip the entire project as is
    3. FTP the project from staging to production
    4. Restore the zip to your production server
    5. Restore the database backup to your production database server
    6. Change the connection string in the web.config to point to the new database location.
