Simple CMS cannot establish a connection to the Database.


Please make sure that the information specified in the connection string section of the configuration file is correct. Below is an example (this example needs to be customized)

<connectionStrings>
<add name="CmsDb" connectionString="Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=SimpleCms;uid=CmsUser;pwd=SimpleCms;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
</connectionStrings>

Click the 'Setup Database' button to configure the database using the connection string specified in your configuration file. You MUST have a working connection string to a database with a login account which has access to create the required table. This account will also need permission to perform standard SQL commands on the database. Make sure that the ASP.NET account also has access to select from the database, or users will not be able to view these pages you create.
