Install Sitefinity CMS

Depending on how you want to use Sitefinity there are the following installation paths:

  • Use Sitefinity CMS with .NET Core Renderer only

    RECOMMENDATION: For new projects, we recommend installing Sitefinity CMS in .NET Core mode and create your project, based on the .NET Core framework.

    In this case, you install Sitefinity CMS with a lighter NuGet package that runs only .NET Core pages and then connect it with the .NET Core Renderer.
  • Use Sitefinity in a hybrid mode with .NET Core Renderer and MVC pages.

    RECOMMENDATION: We recommend using this mode to migrate MVC to .NET Core pages.

    You install Sitefinity CMS with the full NuGet package, and then connect it with the .NET Core Renderer
  • Use Sitefinity with MVC pages only
    You install Sitefinity CMS with the full NuGet package, without installing and setting up a .NET Core Renderer.
