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.
- I created a new database, and updated the connection string with the new database and login.
- Ran the site in IIS
- Sitefinity initiated an upgrade from 1 to 6400 (Installed version of sitefinity is 10.0.6400.0)
- Installation (or rather the upgrade) finished without any visible issues and landed on the Sitefinity login page.
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.
