Please help install TimeTracker RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-324358052 posted


    I have read the instructions and downloaded the files. I created the local database called "timetracker" and ran "timetracker-add.sql". I had to go into .net 2.0 to run some sql.exe program to allow aspnet. Not sure what this is but I found an article that suggests this. My goal is to install the application and run it against my local sql server database. Please help by providing the necessary steps. I remember a while back where all I had to run was a msi and it would install the website, database, and all I had to do was open up the solution. Is that not the case anymore. Please help

    1) in VWD create a new Web Site and point it directly to your IIS local web server call it TimeTracker e.g. http://localhost/TimeTracker (since I have problem getting VWD web server to work using the Beta release) this step will create a web site on your local IIS, you can do this manually too.
    2) Unzip the file downloaded into the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\TimeTracker and overwrite any files there.
    3) Launch the site in IE e.g. http://localhost/TimeTracker/Default.aspx

    Check in web.config for connectionString, configure it according to your server name, password etc.

    In Time Tracking System, it uses inbuild Membership classes for user creation, updation etc..

    You have to register your DB with ASP.NET Membership classes by executing the command line utility in VS prompt

    aspnet_regsql, it will open one window, where you  have to configure DB.

    Hope it will help you, let me know.
