Sitecore XP 10.0 Update 1 – Installation – Docker Way

Speed up sitecore banner

From Sitecore 10.0 Update 1 (aka Sitecore version 10.0.1), the installation by using containers is stable. It should be the first option of us (other options are SIF way and SIA way) – Sitecore enthusiastic guys (especially for front-end folks so they don’t have to install a ton of software products before working with Sitecore :D)

This blog post is a summary of my own experience for Sitecore Experience Platform 10.0 Update 1 installation on my machine with the following install guide:

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10 version 1809 or higher
  • >= 16 Gb of memory
  • Sitecore 10 license file
  • the latest Docker Desktop

Step-by-step Guide

  1. ensure to set up your docker environment by following https://containers.doc.sitecore.com/docs/environment-setup
  2. try to bypass some common network issues by setting DNS servers in the Docker engine configuration:
    • open Docker Desktop and then select Settings => Docker Engine
    • ensure the value of the "dns" key is set to ["8.8.8.8"] if any
    • click Apply & Restart button
    • sc1001_1
  3. to avoid any conflicts, we should ensure the following ports are not being used by another process: 443, 8079, 8984, and 14330 (Page 6 in Installation Guide for Developer Workstation with Containers)
    • table
    • stop IIS
      • Graphical user interface, text, application, website
    • stop windows services if any
    • quit Skype for sure
  4. create a new folder D:\sc1001_install
  5. download and unzip Container Deployment Package
  6. correct the Sitecore version 10.0.1-ltsc2019 in D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0\.evn
    • sc1001_15
  7. create all certificates and initialize the environment file of Windows Server Core version ltsc2019 and XP Single topology (xp0)
    • download init.ps1 and then put it into D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • ensure that this file C:\license\license.xml is available, otherwise will see this error message later License file is not found. or “License not found at ‘C:\license\license.xml’”
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute .\init.ps1 -LicenseXmlPath C:\license\license.xml
    • sc1001_7
    • Note: able to change other default values as well
    • text
  8. pull Sitecore docker images
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute docker-compose pull
    • text
    • Graphical user interface, text, email
  9. spin up the container-based Sitecore instances
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute docker-compose up --d
    • sc1001_8
  10. open a browser, navigate to https://cm.sc1001.localhost/, we would see the default Sitecore page and a valid SSL certificate
    • sc1001_9
  11. open a browser, navigate to https://cm.sc1001.localhost/sitecore, we should be able to login with the admin user and b password by default
    • sc1001_10

Notes

  1. for stopping the Sitecore instances without losing the changes
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute  docker-compose stop
    • sc1001_11
    • start the Sitecore instances again by executing  docker-compose start
    • sc1001_12
  2. for data cleanup
    • download clean.ps1 and then put it into D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1001_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.0.1.004842.221\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute  docker-compose down
    • execute  .\clean
    • sc1001_14

Happy Sitecore 10.0.1 Installation!
