    Hey Roy,

    Welcome to the Umbraco forum!

    Sorry to hear you're having problems getting set up.

    Your connection string in the web.config needs to be

    <add key="umbracoDbDSN" value="server=127.0.0.1;database=cmacchi_umbraco;user id=cmacchi_umbraco;password=d4t4b0ss!!" />

    If this doesn't work I think there's two likely problems:
    either
    1) Your file permissions are not set correctly.
    2) Your SQL user is not set up correctly, do you have any way of testing this? (If you had SQL Server Management you could try logging in as this user and ensuring you could log in)
    Hope this helps, let me know
    Rich

    1) Make sure that the TCP/IP protocol is enabled on your SQL Server (usually it's disabled by default for a local installation);

    2) If you use IP address to identify your server in connection string, as a rule you need to set a port separating it from the address with a comma (like '127.0.0.1,1433');

    3) If you use a named instance of the SQL Server, then you need to set an instance name after the address with a backslash (like '127.0.0.1,1433\SQLEXPRESS');

    Hey Roy,

    Here are a list of the permissions needed you might have to get your host to set them.

    I know this forum question is a little outdated. But I don't see any tutorials on how to upload Umbraco on hostgator. Could some explain to me how to install Umbraco on hostgator?

     

    Thanks.

    Yes I have figured out how to configure Umbraco on HostGator. There are a few changes you have to make in the web.config file. These are the steps that I took in order to configure Umbraco on HostGator.
