Kartris User Guide

2.2.3. Setup routine

In Visual Studio, click to run the web site. You will get a warning that there were errors (this is because we don't yet have a database). Click YES to run the last successful build. You should see the setup routine in your web browser.

Follow the steps through. You will get to a step that lets you setup a database. Specify the path to your SQL Server, choose a database name and select that this is a new database, and Kartris can create and populate this for you. The checkbox to add demo data adds a few sample products and orders, which make it easier to test the basic features, and can easily be deleted later.

Installing the database can take a few minutes. Once done, you should see the admin account details that the setup routine created for you. We suggest you make a note of these now somewhere safe. You can change the password later if you wish, from within the Kartris back end.

Once you get to the end of the setup process, you should see two links, to access the front and back ends of Kartris.

The setup routine will make changes to the web.config file, to include the connection string to the new database and some other minor changs.
