    Hi there

    Can anyone help me to get started with SQL Express 2008 to be used with SF.

    I have SQL Express 2008 RC 2 installed and to me it seems to be running (screenshot)

    Created a web in Project Manager

    Clicked on go to administration

    Did choose SQLExpress but can't seem to connect (See screenshots)

    ---------------------------------
    Can you tell me what steps SF makes when using SQL Express. Since there seems to be a sitefinity.mdf in the App_Data folder upon creation.

    What will the setup do when you choose SQLExpress

    Sorry for basic questions

    It was a real coincident. I opend a test account with arvixe.com and googled some and found a good blog entry http://blog.arvixe.com/using-telerik-sitefinity-with-arvixe-shared-plans/

    After connecting to SQL instead of SQL express with localhost\SQLExpress it worked.

    Is this the correct way to do it?
    Is the other SQLExpress Option only to be used when you setup directly on hosing sever.
