New Kentico Installer


This section describes the installation of Kentico released before 5/2013. If you are looking for the new installation type documentation, see the Kentico CMS 7 Installer Documentation.



Use this file to install the program files on your development machine.




Installation on a shared hosting server


If you're going to run Kentico CMS on a shared hosting server, you do not need to run any EXE file or register any DLL file on the server (you're usually not allowed to do that anyway). Please read Additional configuration tasks -> Installation on shared hosting server to find out how to solve this.


1. Run KenticoCMS_<version>.exe. You will see the welcome screen.




2. Click Next.

3. Read and accept the license agreement and click Next.




4. Choose the location where the Kentico Web Installer and documentation will be deployed.

5. Click Next and Install.

- Please note: this is not the folder where your website will be placed, it's only a place for Kentico CMS program files and help files.




6. After the installation is finished, enable the Launch Kentico Web Installer option and click Finish.

7. Continue to the Web Installer chapter.
