Installing Public Templates on an EPiServer CMS 5 R2 site with an Oracle Database

The PowerShell script we shipped with EPiServer CMS 5 R2 for installing Public Templates was unfortunately tied to MS SQL Server as the user interface wizard you use in the EPiServer Installation Manager to select the site does a hard coded check to see if the SQL Server database exists and is connectable. Obviously this doesn't work so well when the DB is Oracle :-)

So here you will find a new PowerShell script that skips the database check and installs the Public Templates on an Oracle site. Copy the file to the EPiServer CMS 5 R2 installation in the following folder:

<Program Files>\EPiServer\CMS\5.2.375.7\Install\Modules\PublicTemplates.

Next time you start the EPiServer Installation Manager you should see a new node under the 'Installed Products\EPiServer CMS\Version 5.2.375.7' node called 'Install Public Templates (No Db Check)'.
