Hi EPiServer team,
I am trying to get start with EPiServer 7 and I have just install the Alloy Sample site by following the "Get-Started" guide(the one with 5 main steps: http://world.episerver.com/en/Documentation/CMS/Get-started/EPiServer-7-CMS/7-CMS/).
Now I have been up to the step-3: "Open the templates". However, I encounter some issues about entering the EDIT MODE(administrative mode) of the sample Alloy site. According to the info published in the page:
what I need to do is going to the editorial and administrative user interface for the Alloy site by adding "Episerver" to the URL,
my sample site is installed in the path --- E:\EPiServer\Sites\MyEPiServerSite, I can see the Alloy site by entering http://localhost:17000, but once I enter --- http://localhost:17000/EPiServer, it just show me some error message as below:
So, can anyone tell me what is wrong here and any solutions or hints? I just want to enter the edit mode of the sample Alloy site.
Can't I just add " /Episerver " at the end of the URL http://<hostname>:17000 ? Or what else should I do?
Can anyone help though?
I have the same problem. So I tried to add /Home/Episerver (Home is the url to the UI that it make you choose when you install epi server CMS) at the end of the url and something changed.
Now I get a prompt to add a user and password, but it does not login with the user and password used to register on the epi world website.
Anyone knows what is going on here?
Yes, when I type in http://localhost:17000/your/relative/path/to/UI/MyEPiServerSite
it shows up a login page as well.
However, there is no way for me to register or doing anything except entering username and password, but the username and password pair for episerverworld doesn't work here at all.
Anyone has any idea about this?
And also, once I create a Episerver project in Visual studio2010, and trying to open it in browser, same situation ----- this login page.
I have just figured it out!
The username and password you need for the login here are either the Windows Authentication or SQL Server Authentication.
It depends on which one you did choose during the process of installing the sample site.
I use the Windows Authentication username and password and it works 100%.
Hint: Maybe you can check it by entering command net user in cmd console, and those info will show up.
Hope this helps!
No, it's not working for me. I've now tried every username and password, nothing works. Could it be a licence problem? I used the MAC address, but I'm on a virtual machine so that could be a problem.
Note: The path to edit and admin (episerver user interface) is set during the installation process (part of the wizard), look for EPiServer User Interface - Relative Path. Enter a path that, when combined with any of the site bindings, should access the UI interface.
So, if you get 404 message when trying url http://<hostname>:17000/episerver means that you specified something else as UI path when installing.
I managed to get in.
my EpiServer UI URL is ~/Home/
my EpiServer Site URL is http://localhost:1700/ where I find the Alloy website
so if I type http://localhost:1700/Home/ I can login with a new admin user I created on my machine (but not with my user that is also an administrator)
And https://localhost:1700/Home/episerver keep giving a 404 error.
Thanks for help and hope this will help others.
