Help, I went through the wizard successfully I think.  Didn't get any errors.  I see my database created in SQL 2005 also.  uManage is stuck in offline so I removed the file but it goes right back to the begining of the wizard.  I have followed the manual way too but it made things more confusing.  Any help will be greatly appreicated.  Great tool you have here, I hope to get it working.

My guess is that the application does not have write permissions to the web.config file.  Make sure your Application Service account has permission to write to the configuration file.  After which you will need to delete the database and database user.  Then restart the wizard and it should all work fine.

Let me know if that helps.

I have manually setup the application from source, but i am not able to move past the wizard. I have verified permissions to the web config, and have renamed the AppOffline.htm. I have also set the launch setup wizard value to false in the web.config.


any ideas?

I'm running into the same issue with beta 1.3. The database was created in SQL 2008, but I don't believe that the connection strings are being created correctly in the web.config. It appears to be writing to the file (the encrypted data section is present), but the site remains in offline mode.
