New Installation and Configuration
In this chapter, we shall follow a series of steps for the installation of SharePoint 2013. Some readers may have experience with installation of SharePoint 2013, or a previous version of SharePoint. The installation of SharePoint 2013 is similar to that of SharePoint 2010. Whether you are a SharePoint guru, or you are new to SharePoint, this chapter will guide you through the typical steps and best practices for standing up a small farm, for use in your organization, or for use as part of your development environment. The principles for standing up a large farm also follow those in this chapter and involve repeating many of the steps for additional web-front-end (WFE) or application servers in your farm.
