Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer
Today I reviewed how to install dotnetnuke with my students. Word to the wise... Use the latest version of the starter kit. I ran into some problems today with some of my students who had the old version of the starter kit. The problem was a simple fix but with a class of 15 and only 45 minutes of class time, I didn't figure out what the problem was until the students left. I'll try to explain... The earlier version of the starter kit requires you to add a database to the project and to rename the web.config file. This version has host, host-admin,admin as username and passwords. The newer version of the starter kit is so easy to use because you don't have to make any changes at all. It will add the database and mofify the webconfig file on the fly. There is a difference in the username and password that is used. host/dnnhost and admin/dnnadmin Students are very impatient when it comes to files being built and if an error occurs. They are so use to things working and not for real world problems that might happen. This may change for them as they explore dotnetnuke in the next several weeks. We start building pages and adding modules next. Posted on Tuesday, October 17, 2006 2:26 PM Teaching with ASP.NET , DotNetNuke , Teaching AP CS | Back to top
