Setup an app store in SharePoint

If you want to create your own SP app store, then you need to go through quite a few steps..
Here we go!

In Central Admin

First create a new app catalog site

 
I created one on http://server:2013/sites/apps  

Create the app mgmt service application and the Subscription service app

Create the subscription service app

$account = Get-SPManagedAccount domainaccount

$appPool = New-SPServiceApplicationPool -Name SubscriptionServiceAppPool -Account $account

$serviceApp = New-SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication -ApplicationPool $appPool -name “Subscription Settings Service Application” -DatabaseName “SubscriptionSettingsDB”

$serviceAppProxy = New-SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplicationProxy -ServiceApplication $serviceApp

 
Then make sure the services are started, both for App Management and for Subscriptions

Then stop the Timer service

Restart the WWW service
Start the Timer service

Create an alias on your DNS (or use whatever apps domain you want), like apps.yourserver.com

Add that URL in the Configure Apps URL in CA and the prefix you wish to use (I chose “apps”)


On your site
Make sure Publishing site collection features are activated
When you choose “Add an app” and click on “From your organization”, any apps you have added should be visible now:
