##Build in visual studio
Make sure to allow NuGet Package Restore in VS (Tools > Options > Package Manager). The first buid of the project will take quite a while, be patient, it will finish at some point.
Upon build a web.config file will be copied into the
OurUmbraco.Site project which you can use in the following step.
##Database restore Download the SQL Server Database from: http://umbracoreleases.blob.core.windows.net/ourumbraco/OurDev.zip
Restore the database to SQL Server 2012 SP2 (won't work on earlier version) and update the connection strings (
##Logging in All users and members use the same password: Not_A_Real_Password
To log in, try
Not_A_Real_Password for the backoffice and
Not_A_Real_Password for the frontend.
##Projects Area If the projects area seems empty then that's because you need to rebuild the Examine indexes for it through the Developer section of Umbraco
If the documentation area seems empty then that's because you need to download the documentation, look for the the
Github Documentation tab in the dashboards in the Developer section of Umbraco and use the
Get Docs!! button.
##Syncing your fork with the original repository To sync your fork with this original one, you'll have to add the upstream url once:
git remote add upstream git://github.com/umbraco/OurUmbraco.git
And then each time you want to get the changes:
git fetch upstream git rebase upstream/master
Yes, this is a scary command line operation, don't you love it?! :-D
