Setup

Overview

The following articles describe how to setup Sitefinity CMS to work with a standalone ASP.NET Core application as renderer.

You first install Sitefinity NuGet packages in an ASP.NET Core application. This enables the application to render ASP.NET Core pages and to serve as a Sitefinity CMS proxy for all other types of pages, created with Sitefinity.

PREREQUISITES: To setup and run the Renderer application:
  • You must have installed ASP.NET Core SDK 6.0
  • You must have upgraded your Sitefinity CMS to version 14.1.
  • Your Sitefinity license must include both your Renderer application domain (the frontend) and your Sitefinity CMS domain (the backend).

After you have run and tested this scenario and you can move to a cloud hosting or a mixed hosting configuration. For more information, see Hosting configurations.
