Standalone installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010

Here’s my walk through of installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 on a stand alone Windows Server.

Standalone installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010


Some points to note with this method:


1. There are not many prompts. All the defaults are taken.


2. New SharePoint site ends up on the default web site for the server on port 80.


3. You get a SharePoint Team template by default.


4. You get SQL Server 2008 Express installed which has a 4GB database limit.


5. You generally can’t expand this installation to allow multi server (i.e. a SharePoint farm)


This is really the most basic of SharePoint Foundation installs. Watch out for further installation examples, coming soon.
