onion.net Installation Manual

In your onion.net Download Center, a current onion.net distribution is available for download. Based on this, you can create a local onion.net runtime environment or perform an onion.net server installation.

The onion.net runtime environment is to be used on workstations and comprises all server components of a Windows desktop application. Thanks to this, it is possible to set it up quickly and to use it for learning, demonstration and development purposes. For the productive use of onion.net or for the evaluation of the product with several editors, we would like to ask you to perform an onion.net server installation. This manual installation needs to be performed directly on the target systems and comprises several Windows and ASP.NET services.

System prerequisites

For the installation of onion.net, the following prerequisites need to be fulfilled:

  • Microsoft Windows XP or more recent version (onion.net runtime environment)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or more recent version (server installation)
  • Microsoft .NET Framework Version 3.5
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008

The .NET Framework version 3.5 forms part of the automatic update since 2009 and may thus already be installed on the computer.

It is also possible to use the SQL Server 2008 Express R2 version as SQL Server that is available free of charge. The productive use is free of charge, but limited to a data volume of 10 GB.
