Installation issue

Feb 2, 2012 at 8:47 AM

I'm moving a support request from comments.

The user sv219 posted on comments:

Would you tell me what steps is necessary to perform for manual installation. Now I'm getting error: "500 - Internal server error."

I did next steps:
- Create database "PGT_Forum"
- run scripts "mssql.nearforums-db.sql". Scripts was executed successfully.
- copy all directories and files from "web" directory to my server
- create site in IIS
- update web.config file, modify connection string to: <add name="Forums" connectionString="Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=PGT_Forum;Integrated Security=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

on server installed:
- Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64) Mar 29 2009 10:11:52 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Web Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 <X64> (Build 6002: Service Pack 2) 
- IIS 6 SP2
- .NET Framework 4.0

May be I missed something?

From what I can see, you should not use "Integrated Security=True" on an IIS website, it would require to set up the credentials on the IIS pool. Instead, use SQL server security with username and password in the connection string.

On the other hand, to see the full error set the customErrors configuration element in the web.config to "Off".


Let us know if it helped, if not, please include the exception message so we can give you more accurate information.

Kind Regards,
