SETTING UP THE UMBRACO FOLDER STRUCTURE

There are a few folders in the Umbraco install that you must have access to, and a few that you will want to include in the event that you are extending Umbraco's functionality or working with configuration files.

Table B-1 lists all the Umbraco folders that you should include as part of your Visual Studio project and how they map to your Umbraco installation. See Figure B-1 for a view of the project structure.
