Hi,

I was trying to setup blogEngine v1.6 using sql server. I have looked at the setup video and trying to follow the steps given, but not successful. Can someone tell me how to configure the connection strings to use sql server? and how to configure the default provider? I'm using VS 2008 and SQL 2008.

Thanks in advance

In the Setup\SqlServer folder, there's a web.config file you can use that is setup to use the DbBlogProvider in BE.  The file name is "SQLServerWeb.Config".  Rename to web.config and put it in the root folder.  The only change I think you would need to make would be to update the connection string.
