Katmandoo is built using the .NET core framework. This is a cross platform framework and should be compatible with most commonly used operating systems. Please let the Katmandoo team know if you are having any issues in your environment.
Katmandoo can be setup and run locally using the .NET core runtime, or SDK which can be found at https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download. Katmandoo can be run locally using Kestral, but also hosted through a reverse proxy on IIS or Apache.
If Katmandoo is installed on a Windows server for shared connection, the code will run directly from IIS. Other environments will require a reverse proxy via Apache. General instructions on Hosting ASP.NET Core on Windows with IIS can be found at in Microsoft documentation pages.
There are a number of steps involved in the installation of Katmandoo which are specific to the installation environment.
- Install .NET on the server
- Deploy the Katmandoo files to the server
- Install/Configure the Database Server
- Install the Katmandoo database
- Install/Configure the Web Server
Once the setup is complete ensure that the login page is shown. NB. The database connection does not need to be setup and appsettings.json file does not need to be configured to view the settings page.
