installation issues

Mar 12, 2015 at 8:15 PM
I followed the installation instructions but I seem to be missing some details?!
Copied the files in my new website
Created database kbvault, run the script, no errors,
browse to <website>/Dashboard and got the folllowing meesage after 1st login

[SqlException (0x80131904): Cannot open database "kbvault" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'IIS APPPOOL\<websitename>'.]

What credentials do I need to set at the kbvault database to get the acces I need?

Server win2012, sql2012

Try this and please report back your findings:
  1. Create a new local windows user (IE call it SVC-KBVault)
  2. Create a new AppPool for KBVault (IE call it KBVault)
  3. Assign the new user SVC-KBVault, to the newly created KBVault AppPool
  4. On your IIS Website change the AppPool from the deafault AppPool to the new KBVault AppPool you just created
  5. In SQL give the SVC-KBVault user permission to the KBVault SQL database (DBO if you aren't too concerned with security and just want it to work)

Thank you for the explanation, but I'm not there yet.
Done all of the above steps and when I login on the Dashboard I get the following errorpage

[SqlException (0x80131904): Invalid column name 'Author'.]

I can log in in SSMS as the user created and do a query (select * from dbo.article) and get back alle collums.
Where Am I missing something?

Desperately created new database onder administator account,
created new site, copied the kbvault,zip content in this directory,
added the administrator account to the AppPool just to see it work 1 time,

after login in in the dashboard with admin/admin this is the responcw
