How to Set Up Windows Sharepoint

As easy as Microsoft's legendary SharePoint platform is to use, setting up a standalone version of this environment is as nearly as straightforward. A leading collaboration tool from the beginning, you can now have a base install of SharePoint installed and operational in a few simple steps. Though SharePoint 2010 is new, at its core, it is still an ASP.NET 2.0 application built to run on a 64-bit version of Windows 2008 Server. Follow along as we run through configuration prerequisites and the SharePoint 2010 server installation itself. Note: This article assumes that you have a fully functional Windows Server 2008 R2 server to perform the installation on.

Setting Up Windows SharePoint

Step 1
Download SharePoint Foundation 2010 to your 2008 server's desktop. Right-click the SharePoint Foundation icon and select the "Run as Administrator" option to begin the installation and to open the initial menu.

Step 2
Click the "Install software prerequisites" hotlink in the installation window. The product preparation tool window will pop up and inform you that it will check your system for the required products and updates. Click the "Next" button.

Step 3
Accept the license agreement by selecting the check box and clicking the "Next" button. A pop up window will appear confirming the success of the software prerequisites installation.

Step 4
Click the "Install SharePoint Foundation" hotlink. Accept the software license terms and click the "Continue" button.

Step 5
Click the "Standalone" button to install a single server with the default settings. Once completed, you should see a window titled "Run Configuration Wizard". Make sure the "run configuration wizard" option is checked and click the "Close" button.

Step 6
Click the "Next" button of the SharePoint configuration wizard window. A prompt may appear informing you that some services may have to be started or reset during the configuration process. Click the "Yes" button to continue. Once configured, you should receive a message that SharePoint Foundation 2010 has been successfully installed.
