Installing on CD/CM environment

This section covers how to install Ucommerce, when running Sitecore Content Delivery and Content Management as seperate entities.

The Content Management setup

  • Install Sitecore.
  • Create seperate database for Ucommerce.
  • Add reference to database in ConnectionStrings.config
  • Install Ucommerce via the Sitecore installation wizard.

The Content Delivery setup

  • Install Sitecore.
  • Change role to ContentDelivery in web.config:
    
    <add key="role:define" value="ContentDelivery" />
    
    
  • Remove connectionstring to master database:
    
    <!-- <add name="master" connectionString="user id=?;password=?;Data Source=.;Database=cd_env_Sitecore.Master" /> -->
    
    
  • Add connectionstring to the Ucommerce database from the Content Management environment:
    
    <add name="ucommerce" connectionString="user id=?;password=?;Data Source=.;Database=cm_env_Ucommerce" />
    
    
  • Copy Ucommerce files into the folderstructure (these can be taken from the Content Management project):

    • Add assemblies starting with Ucommerce to bin folder (they have the format Ucommerce.*.dll)
    • Add the /bin/ucommerce folder along with its contents.
    • Add Ucommerce folder to the sitecore modules/Shell folder along with its contents.
    • Add Ucommerce config files to App_Config/Include (they have the format Sitecore.uCommerce.*.config)
      • Disable Sitecore.uCommerce.initialize.config and Sitecore.uCommerce.Pipelines.ModifyPipelines.config. This can be done by renaming or deleting them.
  • In sitecore modules/Shell/Ucommerce/Configuration/Shell.config change nameOfContentDatabase to web

    
    <nameOfContentDatabase>web</nameOfContentDatabase>
    
    

Make changes to web.config:

  • Add to <configSections> :
    
    <section name="syscache" type="NHibernate.Caches.SysCache.SysCacheSectionHandler, NHibernate.Caches.SysCache, Version=5.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=6876f2ea66c9f443" requirePermission="false"/>   
    <section name="clientDependency" type="ClientDependency.Core.Config.ClientDependencySection, ClientDependency.Core, Version=1.8.2.1" requirePermission="false"/>
    
  • Add to <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"> :
    
    <add name="ClientDependencyModule" type="ClientDependency.Core.Module.ClientDependencyModule, ClientDependency.Core, Version=1.8.2.1, Culture=neutral"/>
    
  • Add to <handlers> :
    
    <add verb="*" path="PaymentRequest.axd" preCondition="integratedMode" name="PaymentRequest" type="Ucommerce.Transactions.Payments.PaymentRequestForm, Ucommerce"/>
    <add verb="*" path="PaymentProcessor.axd" preCondition="integratedMode" name="PaymentProcessor" type="Ucommerce.Transactions.Payments.PaymentProcessor, Ucommerce"/>
    <add verb="*" name="ClientDependency" preCondition="integratedMode" path="DependencyHandler.axd" type="ClientDependency.Core.CompositeFiles.CompositeDependencyHandler, ClientDependency.Core, Version=1.8.2.1, Culture=neutral"/>
    
  • Add to <controls> :
    
    <add tagPrefix="commerce" namespace="Ucommerce.Presentation.Web.Controls" assembly="Ucommerce.Presentation"/>
    
  • Change <compilation> :
    
    <compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="true" targetFramework="4.7">
    
  • Add to <assemblies> :
    
    <add assembly="ClientDependency.Core, Version=1.8.2.1, Culture=neutral"/>

  • Register a custom implementation of ISitecoreContext as a new app in the apps folder.

As shown in this piece of documentation. In the configuration of this component, the nameOfContentDatabase parameter should be changed to 'web'. Like this:

    
    <component id="SitecoreContext" service="Ucommerce.Sitecore.ISitecoreContext, Ucommerce.Sitecore" type="Ucommerce.Sitecore.SitecoreContext, Ucommerce.Sitecore">
        <parameters>
            <backEndDomainName>sitecore</backEndDomainName>
            <nameOfContentDatabase>web</nameOfContentDatabase>
            <shouldPullTemplatesFromSitecore>false</shouldPullTemplatesFromSitecore>
        </parameters>
    </component>
