Hi everyone, I downloaded YAF and unzipped it in the IIS server's shared directory where other web site/apps reside. It now sits in a structure like this: C:\SharedIISFolder\DiscussionForum\.

I created the SQL Server database and modified the db.config file with the proper connection string.

<%@ Page Language="c#" CodeFile="default.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="True" Inherits="YAF.Install._default" %>
