I'm trying to install on my pc (localhost before placing on real hosting address) i didn't got to far. I've entered configuration password and then came this messsage.

"There has been a serious error loading the forum. No further information is available.
Please contact the administrator if this message persists."

on my PC i have sql 2005 Management Studio, VStudio 2005, Win XP SP3.

in db.config i've tryed following:

add name="WebConnectionString" connectionString="data source=ALEJANDRO;initial catalog=YAF;User Id=**;Password=*****;persist security info=False;packet size=4096

add name="YAF" connectionString="data source=ALEJANDRO;initial catalog=YAF;User Id=**;Password=*****

add name="YAF" connectionString="data source=localhost;initial catalog=YAF;User Id=**;Password=*****
and several other combinations.

Install procedure says:
1. unzip file in folder
2. select web.config - i've took it from webconfigs folder and move one folder up
3. create blank database in SQL called YAF
4. then i've created virual directory and open Localhost/ (then go to 1. sentence)

YAF is the blank database which i've created in sql 2005 Management Studio
Why would you change the name of the connection string?

The web.configs in the \Configs folder use a connection string called "yafnet".

When I post fp:mddubs in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Mek 🙂, who stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

could you be so kind and tell me what to put in conn. string (i'm not an IT expert).

this is my current db.config

add name="yafnet" connectionString="data source=ALEJANDRO;initial catalog=YAF;User Id=**;Password=***;persist security info=False;packet size=4096

alejandro is computer name
YAF is name of database
USer ID and Password is to enter in database
