Error occurred in deployment step ‘Install app for SharePoint’: Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site. – SharePoint 2013

Posted: January 3, 2013 in Apps, Code, Errors, SharePoint 2013

When you try creating a SharePoint 2013 App project in a SharePoint hosted model and when you try to deploy the solution, you get an error “Error occurred in deployment step ‘Install app for SharePoint’: Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site.”

One thing you should remember is, Always the app should be published/deployed to the developer site. That is, while creating a site collection/site where you want to deploy the app, create it using the “Developer Site” template under the Collaboration tab. Now you will be able to deploy your app on the site.
