This document contains instructions on how to create a template for a small business website using a content management system called Orchard, ecommerce software called Magelia, all running on a Windows Azure cloud instance (or locally/other). Since Orchard is not commonly used, documentation for its setup, which is a custom configuration, is put in a step-by- step manner. Many times the standard is first show how to perform the task first view example then just give the technically spec for further operations of the same type. The documentation for Magelia, however, is already fabricated extensively and will be linked to when needed. The overall object of this documentation is to create and implement a dynamic, easy-to-use site for a small business.
