SQL Server Express 2005?

Dec 14, 2009 at 11:02 PM

Installing Blogengine.net for the first time. Anxious to give it a test drive.

We'd like to go the DB route rather than the XML route (though am curious if there are arguments for just sticking with XML).

Our DB Server, alas, is 2000. It looks like we can use it, but we introduce some potential issues with field validation due to BE using some fields centric to 2005 only.

We *do* have access to SQL Server Express 2005 on the web server, however. Is that a viable option? Has anyone used that DB for BE? If so, any gotchas?

SQL Server 2005 will work perfectly fine.  Express edition and the non-express editions are using the same engine ... so both are good.
