I am setting up a local copy of Umbraco from a existing Umbraco install, am able to log into the backend and view all the "Content", "Media", "Users" it matches exactly what I see if I log into the existing install.
But when I go to view any of the pages on the website I see nothing, this error appears in the umbracoLog table

I am sure it is probably something that I have overlooked, I have editted the <add key="umbracoDbDSN" /> to use my local database settings.
it looks like your SQL server isn't configured correctly. When you start up SQL Server Management Studio, can you log into your server with the credentials from the connection string used and access the database that is used?
To solve your problem you most likely have to configure your connections for SQL server. Do the following:
1. All programs -> Microsoft SQL Server xxx -> Configuration Tools -> SQL Server Configuration Manager, launch that2. Select SQL Server Network Configuration and the Protocols for xxxx [with xxxx being your db instance]3. You should see 4 entries here: Shared Memory, Named Pipers, TCP/IP, VIA4. Make sure Named Pipes is Enabled5. Make sure TCP/IP is Enabled as well; right-click on TCP/IP and select Properties6. Select tab IP Addresses, select for all entries Active=Yes and Enabled=Yes, click OK7. You will most likely get the message 'You must restart the service for your changes to take effect' or similar; go to SQL Server Services in the Configuration Manager, right click on the entry 'SQL Server (xxx)' [with xxx being your db instance] and choose Restart
That should do the trick! Please see also here for more info on setting up Umbraco.
Hope that helps,
Thank you for the reply
Yes the settings I have in web.config work when logging into SQL. All the protolcols are enabled and I checked that the IP addresses where active and enabled.
This is the screen when I log into Umbraco
When I try to browse the website I get this
When I check the umbracoLog table it has the named pipes error in it.
Oops trust my first forum post to be an embrassing one.
There is also a Connections.config file in the root bin directory that had connectionstring setting that needed to be changed
Welcome to the forums. I'm happy you got your problem solved. Don't be embarrased - we can all get confused about stuff and then asking for help is the only way forward. You got your problem solved by yourself and everything is good.
If you have further questions etc. don't hesitate to ask. We're friendly bunch who just likes to help each other out. Sometimes we all get confused about the obvious. We're only human :-)
Thanks Jan, appreciate the comments!
Hehe, glad you got it figured out (that's what counts in the end, right?). Don't worry, these 'stupid' mistakes happen all the time, the good thing is that we now got a nice forum entry about that so the next guy/girl looking for the same thing will hopefully get that resolved in no time at all. :)
