Topic: How to get the database set up? SQLEXPRESS 2005
I downloaded PunBB, and installed it into a new website using Microsoft Web Developer Express.
I set the startup page to be index.aspx.
I then created a new database using SQL Express 2005, and put that database into the APPData Folder.
When I compile and start the project everything runs fine. I see the Install page and cannot get it to locate the Database.
I named the database Punbb, and it is attached to the SQL Express 2005 instance. When I open the SQL manager I can see the database with no problem.
But everytime I attempt to get the INDEX.ASPX page I get these errors:
Can not connect to DB.ERROR  [Microsoft][SQL Native Client][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'xxxxxx'.
The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.
ERROR  [Microsoft][SQL Native Client][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'xxxxx'.
The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection
So why can I sign in with SQL manager but not the install.aspx page?
The database must have been created using a trusted connection which uses my Windows userid/password.
BTW I'm no expert at creating database's with proper authorities, I must have not created it correctly but don't know what to do. Any help is much appreaciated.
