Local Development

Below you can find the minimum requirements to run Umbraco 13 on your machine:

When using Visual Studio as your primary Integrated Development Environment (IDE) we recommend finding and downloading the Software Development Kits (SDKs) for Visual Studio.


Recommendation requirements to run Umbraco

As Umbraco releases are aligned to the .NET release cadence, it's also aligned with Microsoft's Long-term support policy for the underlying framework. For the best experience, we would recommend that you ensure to be on the latest and supported Microsoft versions to run and host Umbraco CMS:

For the above, as Umbraco version 13 is based on .NET 8 you will need to follow the .NET 8 supported versions.

For more information, see the Host and deploy ASP.NET Core applications article in the Microsoft documentation.

You can use Umbraco Cloud to manage the hosting infrastructure. All Umbraco Cloud plans are hosted on Microsoft Azure, which gives your site a proven and solid foundation.

Other recommendation

  • Ability to set file permissions to include create/read/write (or better) for the user that "owns" the Application Pool for your site. This would typically be NETWORK SERVICE.

Database Account Roles

The database account used in the connection string will need permission to read and write from tables. It will also require permission to create schema during installs and upgrades:

  • The db_owner role has full permissions on the database.

  • To use an account with more restricted permissions, the db_datareader and db_datawriter roles will be needed for normal use to read from and write to the database. The db_ddladmin role, which can modify the database schema, is required for installs and upgrades of the CMS and/or any packages that create database tables.

For more information on the Database-level roles, see the Microsoft documentation.
