Database connection error (1) IIS win2003 sql2008

Post by liranbp2012 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:26 pm

Hi everybody,
I'm new to joomla and built demo site on my local PC (win7,sql2008) installed from Web Platform Installer.
All works good, I want to switch to sql 2005 and done it good, transfer the DB and change the configuration.php file. still all works :)

Now I want to move the site to my server (win 2003 r2,iis,sql 2005) I did all the things and finally got this error "Database connection error (1): JLIB_DATABASE_ERROR_ADAPTER_SQLSRV".
also I tried install the joomla 2.5 from Web Platform Installer and did it well and all ok but the first run didn't works and bring me the same error.

What should I do? What I'm missing ???

Best Regards

Assuming the Windows server 2003 only has IIS6 as default then Joomla is not compatible with this. The minimum requirement is IIS7.
