I have been working on DNN local installation fine. I uploaded it to my live server today, after changing both the ConnectionString and Portal Aliases. I am using DNN 3.2.2
Now, I wanted to run it again locally, I changed back the ConnectionString and the Portal Aliases and tried to lunch it. What is happening is as follows:
I can see the progress bar moving and it reaches 100%, it keeps on flickering and the Portal 0 never opens!!!
I do have a child website, ifI access it, it works fine. But the main portal is not loading.

I've only run into a problem one time trying to run a dnn site locally and i fixed it by doing the following
In our web.config for the value server= use a actual ip address instead of saying localhost for the server value for what ever your local ip configuration is.
You can find this by running in windows dos mode and typing ipconfig. This will give you the ip of your local machine.
in other words try this
value="Server=192.number.number.number;Database=nameof database;uid=youruserid;pwd=your password
Also important make sure you've set up the permissions correctly under SQL Security Logins.
Not sure if any of these will help in your situation, but its better than having nothing to try.

Thank you RegGFX.
The issue is that, the day after I had this situation everything worked just fine. Althought when I upload the dnn to a live server, I didn't do any changes to my local installation.
Now it works fine, thanks again for your contribution.
