    I have my hosting with (ASP.NET 3.5 verfied webhosting) and have access to IIS7 tools.

    But I presume will not be able to run your sitefinity installer on the server.

    Is there a workaround for installing on a shared hosting?

    Hi Amir,

    The executable could be run only in Full trust environment with an administrative account. The same applies for the database upgrade. You should install the executable on your local server and then FTP the project to your server. Another option is using Dedicated server or VPS.
