cannot connect to the database server - installation wizard

Mar 25, 2011 at 8:43 PM

I have double checked my settings, and verified the SA password. But when i'm on the database configuration step, I keep getting an error that it cannot connect to the database server. is it possible to specify a different sql authentication account?

 

thanks,

Jason,

No it uses the SA account because it has rights to setup and install a database. Can you confirm you can use the SA account with SQL management studio?

Hello,

Yes. You need change the connectionString in the web.config file in your website.
