Sitecore Install Checklist

Here is a list of things I find helpful to do when I first setup an instance of Sitecore.  As I find more I will continue to update this list.

  1. add the IIS App Pool to the Performance Log Users group
  2. change admin password
    1. create admin users for each developer (helps identify who’s doing what)
  3. <setting name=”HtmlEditor.DefaultProfile” value=”/sitecore/system/Settings/Html Editor Profiles/Rich Text Full”/>
  4. <setting name=”Media.DisableFileMedia” value=”true”/>
  5. Link Manager – lowercase, remove aspx, disable languageEbbedding
    1. Here’s an example: LinkManager
  8. <setting name=”Media.RequestExtension” value=”” />
  9. <setting name=”Media.IncludeExtensionsInItemNames” value=”true” />
