    If you are installing the portal to a directory other then your root, connect to your site with ftp client and create this directory. Then convert this directory to a web application. Please see this KB article for the instructions on how to do it. If you are installing the application to the root, just skip this step since the root directory is already the application starting point.

    Download mojoPortal from here. Choose the .NET Framework version of the application. By the time this article was written, I downloaded the following zip archive: In this file name ‘mssql’ means Microsoft SQL Server, and ‘net40’ means ASP.NET Framwork 4.0. Download the appropriate zip archive to your local machine and unzip it.

    Navigate to ‘wwwroot’ directory, locate ‘user.config.sample’ file and rename it to ‘user.config’. Open this file with a text or xml editor and locate the following string:

    <add key="MSSQLConnectionString" value="server=(local);UID=mojouser;PWD=mojo123;database=mojo" />
    Replace the connection parameters in this string with the parameters of your database. Please visit your Database Management Tools to get that parameter. Below is an example of how your new connection string should look like:

    <add key="MSSQLConnectionString" value=";UID=DB_12345_MyDB_user;PWD=MyPassword;database=DB_12345_MyDB" />
    Save user.config file and upload all files from ‘wwwroot’ directory to the installation directory on the server. Be patient, there are almost 8K files to upload so it can take a while.

    After uploading your files, set the appropriate ASP.NET Framework (4.0 or 3.5) in your control panel here.

    By default, mojoPortal requires full trust. Please connect to your site with IIS Manager and set the trust level to full. If it is already set to full, set it to medium and then immediately back to full. This step will properly configure your site. If you do not do this, you will receive an error during setup. Please see this KB article for the instructions on how to connect to your site with IIS Manager.

    Visit YourInstallationDirectory/Setup/Default.aspx URL and complete the installation of your portal.
