Hi DNN community,
I was first introduced to DNN at the launch if the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.
It all seem very interesting and good, the ability to use a open source framework for quickly developing web sites.
I have never used SQL, I have only used ACCESS but with DNN i have had to learn about SQL and howe to implement it.
Since the 24th of Novemeber i have been trying , and trying and trying, with no luck i have trolled through pages upon pages of advice trying to uinderstand why i cannot get it up and running.
I have tryed several ways,
I have 2 hard drives , one has Windows 2003 Server, the other hard drive has XP Pro SP2. XP PRO runs IIS 5.1 and Win 2003 has IIS 6.
I have tryed with VS 2005, and i have tred with VS web developer. I have tryed with the default SQLEXPRESS and I have tryed with SQL 2005. both with no joy.
I think i have narrowed my problem down. My knowlege of IIS is insufficeient to allow permissions to ASP account or the NT AUTHORUTY/SYSTEM account.
I have done what was suggested about allowing permissions and still am unable to get DNN up and running.
After doing everything that has been suggested on this fourm ,i ended up getting SERVICE UNAVAILABLE.
again pulling my hair out and definitly putting me behind sechulde,
I am not in a business, my computer is a home computer, can some expalin to me please, when you have a ordinary home PC say XP, an you install IIS on it what do i need to change to allow me to firstly remove the UNDER CONSTRUCTION page away from localhost
and allow permissions so that DNN can run. I have followed the instructions given and still nothing is there something else that im missing please
I have promised a web site to some one and wanted to use DNN but running in to a brick wall,

There are some excellent free videos at
http://www.dnncreative.com/Home/2005Issues/Issueno4/tabid/206/Default.aspx worth reviewing.. they may help you.
An alternative, would to install V2 of DNN so you can use the Access based version. Once you have a good working knowledge of DNN, you could move up to V3.2
