    Boot failed: Umbraco cannot run

    I have setup my blank umbraco site with default DB and now I am trying to host it in my network so that back end office can be accessed from any computer in my network.

    But as you can see the following error related to connection string stating that umbraco cant be connected to database. enter image description here

    Check your database rights. Umbraco can't access the database, probably some permissions issue.

    Hope this helps,

    I was finally able to solve it. There were a couple of steps which I missed which are as follows:

    1. Since I was publishing my site to another folder, somehow the new path was not changed in advance setting in IIS (although I was able to explore in that folder)

    2. I didn't include App_Data folder(having Umbraco.Sdf file) and some other important folder, hence the connection string issue.

    After above two, I was able to host my umbraco project in my network.

    NOTE: If you will be debugging your application, then you should first exclude app_data folder from your project.
