SIF-less 2.1.2 – Validation at Execution

I was thinking to myself the other night, “Self. What happens if I bork my system after I’ve generated my SIFless-EZ script? What if I reboot and solr doesn’t come back up. What if I accidentally lock out my admin SQL account? What if Coronas don’t magically transport me to a tropical place where I’m…


SIF-less – Time for a re-brand?

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… ok no When I first conceived of SIF-less, the thought was to make Sitecore 9 installs easier. Because…they were hard. Unnecessarily hard. And..it did that for me. And I thought it was cute to give it a silly name. And then someone else wanted to…


SIF-less 2.1.1

Hey all, just pushed out a new version of SIF-less.  It was a quickie.  Updates include: Forcing HTTPS on XP0 installs. Thanks to Łukasz Skowroński for the blog post. Also, the AlllowedCorsOrigins for identify server will be working already with HTTPS. (Stack Overflow here.) The Password Recovery Url should now be HTTPS by default. The role for…


SIF-less 2 is here. Now with 100% more 9.1 support

It’s been a while since an update has come out for SIF-less. <Insert excuse about real life and work balance here> <Insert indifferent response to said excuse here> Now that THAT is out of the way, let’s talk about what’s new: Now supports 9.1  This is a biggie. It had a couple of side effects,…


SIF-less 2 Beta 3 – Now with Habitat!

Last week, Sitecore release a new version of Sitecore Habitat.  One of the goals I’ve had with SIF-less is to allow for a greater flexibility in provisioning instances of Sitecore.  While there is in fact a new version of SIF-less here, the majority of the work allow for a Habitat flavor of Sitecore 9.0.2 was…


SIF-less 2 Beta Update 2

This isn’t an insignificant one.  Here’s the good updates: Completely revamped the uninstall process. Rather than using SIF for uninstall, we’re going with plain PowerShell.  This might not be the end-game here, but this is a lot cleaner and fault tolerant.  It can also be re-run multiple times to clean up an instance, and it…


SIF-less 2 Beta – Update 1

This release has a couple new features, as well as some bug fixes.  It’s getting closer.  It also has added a couple new items to my “to-do” list. Bug Fixes No longer crashes when selecting certain topologies Fixed an error when replacing bookmarks in the EZ ps1 files New Features Changed Versions and Typologies to…


Welcome to SIF-less 2. Beta Edition!

I started this an embarassingly long time ago, in a galaxy far away.  Actually it was an alcohol-infused one-man hackathon where I secured first place.  Anywho, here goes nothing (If you want to skip right to getting started, scroll to “Getting Started”) Why a new SIF-less? The first one was ok, in my eyes. I…


SIF-less Version 0.5.0 – More Requirements Checks!

One of the biggest feedbacks from SIF-less’s release was that while the validation checks in the Test Window were nice, there were some instances where the validation would pass, but the install would still fail.  This release closes some of those gaps and adds in a few more tests to ensure you have a higher…


Introducing SIF-less for Easy Sitecore 9 Installation

  After working through some of the initial shock of the new install process, I took to some tinkering.  What I came up with was something I dubbed SIF-less. It’s a little less SIF than a standard SC9 install takes.  That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with SIF. It’s an amazing framework.  It is…
