DNN local set up problem

A DNN local set up problem can be quite a vexing experience especially for someone new. Few small little problems can stop the whole local set up process for a DNN developer. Here we are providing to some basic DNN local set up problem that can occur while installing a DNN site. We have decided to detail our day-to-day experience on the common problems faced with local DNN install.

Note: We are assuming that the local set up consists of a Windows XP Pro machine running IIS 6.0/7.5, SQL Server 2005/2008, and the .NET 3.5/4.0 Framework.

Error 1. A windows display, "Cannot open database requested in login" or Login fails or Login failed for user. This error mostly occurs if you install a DNN site on your hosting sever and try to upload files from your local computer. The settings for DB and DNN files have to match. This is showcased in the figure 1 below:

Error 2. An error message says, "Connection Error" as shown in figure 2. This error occurs while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2008, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. Make sure you fill in all the information correctly while installing the DNN site.

Error 3. An error message says, "Dotnetnuke error" as shown in figure 2. This is quite a common error that occurs when your SQL script didn't script everything. It can happen either due to the bad database or you didn't copy all of the files from your development site to production site. The best way to move your DB is to backup and restore a SQL Server BAK file.
