Unable to provision SQL Express 2008 R2 databases RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings, I'm new to WebSitePanel and this is my first setup. I'm running on Windows Server 2008R2. I installed SQL Express 2008 R2 before installing WebSitePanel with the Web Platform Installer. I did set authentication to Mixed Mode per the documentation.

    After setting up WSP and adding a user with a hosting space with a package that is allowed 5 databases of unlimited DB and unlimited log size, with Backups, Restores, and Truncate all enabled; I am unable to provision SQL Server 2008 databases.

    When I attempt to add the database I receive an error that says "System.Exception: Exception of type 'System.Exception' was thrown." Looking in the SQL Manager application, I can see that no database has been created.

    I would appreciate any advice for things to check or possible configuration steps I may have missed. Thank you!
