Enabling SharePoint 2013 ‘Apps’
After installing and configuring SharePoint 2013, if you try to visit the SharePoint App Store you will notice a warning message ‘Sorry, apps are turned off. If you know who runs the server, tell them to enable apps.”. Well lucky for us, we run this server so it’s time to configure it to run Apps.
Basically SharePoint apps can be deployed in three ways –
– Provider-hosted (Developer or IT department provides the hosting infrastructure) – Autohosted (Uses Windows Azure or SQL Azure for hosting) – SharePoint-hosted (Hosted inside existing SharePoint infrastructure)
In order to install an App from the App Store you must setup an isolated App Domain, this is because Apps from the store deploy to their own app domain and run under a separate process from your SharePoint sites. If your SharePoint site uses the DNS alias http://sharepoint.contoso.com you could have *.apps.contoso.com as your app domain. I’m going to walkthrough the process required to set-up your environment for Apps but at a high level, if you need more details for each step then head on over to the MSDN documentation.
