Server requirements

All-in-one installer

The all-in-one installer takes care of most of the configuration. All you need is a correctly set-up web server and a database server, essentially. The person that does the installation should have sufficient permissions to access said systems.

The user carrying out the installation of Dime.Scheduler can perform his task almost entirely using the installer. For example, the Windows features can be switched on programmatically so it is no longer necessary to turn them on manually. Likewise, the installation scripts will create website application pools, websites, event log sources, windows services.

Life has gotten a lot easier with the all-in-one installer. The user can focus on providing the correct parameters and the installer will take care of the rest.
