I have been roped in to helping configure a current cloud install of Acumatica, and frankly, I’m out of my depth. I have a technical background, but have not used or configured any similar software.
I thought that a good approach would be to start with a local installation on my Windows 10 Machine. I use it for video editing, so it’s quite well equipped. That would allow me to play with the company's data set safely in a sandbox. It would also allow me to work my way through Acumatica training guides (A150 looks like a good one to start with).
My first question concerns which version of Acumatica to install. The company is using 2021 R2 (Build 21.210.0030), and the A150 lesson seems to need 2022 R1. Do I need to install both versions (one to run A150 lessons, and one to play with the company’s data set)?
I decided to start with the download of ERP 2021 R2 Update 4 from the Acumatica site, but it seems to be an earlier version (21.204.0055) than the one we’re running in the cloud. I tried installing it, but had no success. The installer said it required IIS 7 or later. I installed IIS 10 Express (and SQL Server 2019 Express for good luck), but the installer still asked for IIS 7 or later.
I’m hoping that there’s a detailed installation instruction somewhere that assumes no pre-knowledge. Any hints, tips, or pointers would be gratefully received. Also, please feel free to suggest a better approach to learning this stuff if I’m way off base.
Thanks in advance
