Getting Start

Most of the declaration has been done in xp0-configuration.ps1 that we can see here

##### Sitecore's packages
$SitecoreAzureToolKitPackageName = "Sitecore Azure Toolkit*.zip"
$SitecoreModules = @(
        ModulePath      = "$($AssetsPath)\Sitecore PowerShell Extensions-4.7.2 for Sitecore"
        ModuleName      = "SPE-4.7.2" 
        ModuleDatabase  = "mastercore"
        ModulePath      = "$($AssetsPath)\Sitecore Experience Accelerator 1.8.1 rev. 190319 for"
        ModuleName      = "SXA-1.8.1" 
        IsSxA           = $true
        ModuleDatabase  = "mastercore"

Now, let open PowerShell Window as Administrator, then execute the following commands

Set-Location -Path "D:\sitecore-nine-utility"

Let install SPE & SXA


If the installation is successfully

What did the script do?

  • It convert SPE and SXA package to Sitecore WebDeploy Package (also know as * file) by using Sitecore Azure Toolkit
  • Using Sitecore Installation Framework (SIF in short) to install those scwdp packages.

So, what’s next?

After the script executed successfully, let access the url with the legend credential admin/b; then access the Sitecore’s item at path /sitecore/system/Settings/Foundation/Experience Accelerator/Upgrade/Current to verify the version of SXA

If we plan to install Sitecore Commerce, so let move to Part-3
