If you want to deploy Kentico CMS directly to the live server (or generally to a remote server), you need to follow these steps:


1.Install Kentico CMS on your local machine if you haven't done so yet.
2.Run Kentico CMS Web Installer (you can find it in Start -> All Programs -> Kentico CMS).
3.Choose to install Kentico CMS on a remote (production or testing) server and enter the path C:\tempfiles. Finish the wizard - it only copies the files to the given folder. You do not need to have Visual Studio installed.
4.Copy the files from your local folder C:\tempfiles to the root of the website using FTP. If you want to use a sub-folder, you will need to create a new virtual directory as described in Creating a virtual directory.
5.Open web browser and navigate to your website. You will be displayed with Database Setup Wizard.
6.Go through the wizard and create a new Kentico CMS database on your live server.
7.At the end of the Database Setup Wizard, choose either to create a new website or import your existing Kentico CMS website.
