Sitecore XP 10.2 Initial Release – Installation – Docker Way

CMS for sitecore

This blog post is a summary of my own experience for Sitecore Experience Platform 10.2 Initial Release (e.g Sitecore 10.2.0) installation on my machine with the following install guide:

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10 version 1903 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
    • DNS set to 8.8.8.8 for SC10.2
  3. to avoid any conflicts, we should ensure the following ports are not being used by another process: 443, 8079, 8984, and14330 (Page 6 in Installation Guide for Developer Workstation with Containers)
    • Networking requirements for SC10.2
    • stop IIS

  9. open a browser, navigate to https://xp0cm.localhost/, we would see the default Sitecore page and a valid SSL certificate
    • Connection is secured for SC10.2
  10. open a browser, navigate to https://xp0cm.localhost/sitecore, we should be able to login with the admin user and b password by default
    • Connection is secured and the version is 10.2.0
  11. DON’T FORGET to perform the following thing as well (Page 12 in Installation Guide for Developer Workstation with Containers)
