I ran into a problem installing SXA (Sitecore Experience Accelerator) 1.8 on a new Sitecore 9.2 instance. The problem is with SPE. The latest version of SPE on Marketplace is 5.0
Sitecore 9.2 requires Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) 1.9, not 1.8.
SXA 1.9 for Sitecore 9.2 requires either:
- The official Sitecore Powershell Extensions 5.1 version: https://github.com/SitecorePowerShell/Console/releases/tag/5.1
- The SXA build of Sitecore Powershell Extensions 5.0 for Sitecore 9.2: https://dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Experience_Accelerator/19/Sitecore_Experience_Accelerator_190.aspx
SXA 1.8 requires SPE 5.1, which as of right now is not available on Marketplace. If you're installing SXA 1.8 on 9.2, download SPE 5.1 from GitHub https://github.com/SitecorePowerShell/Console/releases/tag/5.1.
SPE is also available on the download site from Sitecore itself ;)
You can find it on the list of downloads for SXA 1.9: https://dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Experience_Accelerator/19/Sitecore_Experience_Accelerator_190.aspx
Two versions are available there:
- Sitecore PowerShell Extension 5.0 for Sitecore 9.1
- Sitecore PowerShell Extension 5.0 for Sitecore 9.2
That is not yet the 5.1 version - but according to the install guides for SXA, SPE 5.0 should be sufficient.
