Hi everybody,

I have problems finding the database belonging to my DNN 7.3.2

I have installed the portal locally using webmatrix3.
Is DNN using a database file only or can I browse the database with Management Studio?

 My problem is that I get a DB.Null exception when trying to browse the database with webmatrix.

Thanks for all hints, I feel (and surely am) a bloody beginner....

By default, DNN uses /app_data/database.mdf in user instance mode

Thanks for the quick reply !

And sorry for not being precisely. I need to find a method how to browse the database. I can find the database.mdf file but how do I open it?

Do I need to attach it in Management Studio? I am just afraid to destroy something as it is not so easy to "repair" an installation of DNN.

 

Thanks in advance,

Gunther

You may attach it to a database server using SSMS, but you need to detach it again, for DNN being able to access it using the same connection strings.

Thanks Sebastian!

I guess I need more background information: Which instance of SQLServer should i use to browse the database. The engines that are available in SSMS do not show the engine with the DNN Database. As written before I have installed DNN using webmatrix "out of the box".

Thanks for help!
