    I'm trying to set up a project with SQL Express, however Sitefinity throws MySQL configuration error after I pass the screen with the admin credentials. Do I need to add any additional connection string or maybe install again Sitefinity ?

    Anyway I fixed it. Seems that the issue is with the default SiteMap provider, which is installed by default along with the MySQL .Net Connector. So the sitemap should be either excluded in the project's web.config file or to run the MySQL installer and remove the .Net Connector
