DNN Connection Strings

Article ID: 1143

 Back to Search

DNN installations on our servers use the SQL Server 2005, we do not use SQL Server Express on our Shared Hosting Environments so please do not use SQL Server 2005/2008 EXPRESS connection strings.  Instead, use SQL Server 2005/2008 Connection strings.

If you do not have these, here is an example of what you should have bellow:

This one goes under <connectionStrings>

<add name="SiteSqlServer" connectionString=";Database=DBNAME;uid=DBUSERID;pwd=DBPASSWORD;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

This one goes under <AppSettings>

<add key="SiteSqlServer" value=";Database=DBNAME;uid=DBUSER;pwd=DBPASSWORD;" />
