i've just installed umbraco 8.3 on my local machine without any problems. If i try to start it from Visual studio it works fine but, after configure it on my local IIS if i try to navigate it i get:
Boot failed: Umbraco cannot run. See Umbraco's log file for more details.
-> Umbraco.Core.Exceptions.BootFailedException: A connection string is configured but Umbraco could not connect to the database.
in Umbraco.Core.RuntimeState.DetermineRuntimeLevel(IUmbracoDatabaseFactory databaseFactory, ILogger logger) in D:\a\1\s\src\Umbraco.Core\RuntimeState.cs:riga 194

Thanks in advace
Its probably a SQL Permissions issue, if you run your site via Visual Studio and IISExpress it runs under your windows account, so if you connect to the Database with integrated permissions it is using your windows account.
when you run via IIS it will probably be running under the "Network Service" account, you should either give that account access to teh SQL server or look at using a SQL username/password to connect.
if you are not using SQL but SQL Express check file permissions, again see if "Network Service" has write access to the app_data folder.
I'm not that familiar with these things, could you please point me in the right way on what and where should I change these permissions.
I can only run it via Visual Studio like you mentioned, but want to run it via IIS and not sure how to get past the issue.
In the past I was able to run the sites from IIS with connection string to remote SQLExpress2017.
ok perfect now it works fine was a permission issue.
Thanks a lot for you help!
Hello Davide, i have same issue as you had. can you please guide me how did you solve that?
thanks in advance.
I have seen a similar problem with Umbarco v9.0.1 after deploying the code to an Azure App Service and the problem was due to a connection string error.
PS: I wrote a blog about the problem and my solution, hope this helps someone.
