https://github.com/YAFNET/YAFNET :

1. Where is web.config in YetAnotherForum.NET directory? Is it missing on purpose or it's not included for some reason?
2. I saw that in db.config you are attaching |DataDirectory|Database.mdf; - does the forum seriously uses attached db? Autogenerates schema in it on first execution? How is it initial structure / data populated?
3. Presuming I have db running - how to start the website locally? Starting YAF project does nothing because of missing web.config

Thanks for the answers and I hope I'll be able to contribute to the project

OK, for anyone who stumbles upon this post:
1. There is webconfigs directory - need to copy web.config from there.

I'm now on #2 - need to update my sql server express since the database is created using Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 SP2 (and I have "only" SQL Server 2008).

This is an empty database. Simply remove it and create your own. You can use any database - just change your connection string.

Yeah - just now saw that after I finished installation process.

I'll now browse setting and code and get back here later.

One question though - why are .config files tracked / in repo? Meaning - now that I've changed .config files for my local dev env I obviously can't send that commit to master. How do you guys deal with those files? You have local .gitignore?

Also my Visual Studio heavily modified .csproj files - do you use some other IDE? Or Visual Studio 2012?

I'm using Visual Studio 2012 Express for Web to compile YAF. Granted, I don't make any changes. I just compile the source in RELEASE and use the DLL's.
