Using the BlogEngine.NET SQL Server Provider Screencast

-   Jan 04, 2008 -   BlogEngine.NET, Screencasts -   , , ,

SQLProvider My second 1.3 screencast is a walk through of setting up the SQL Server provider from BlogEngine.NET.  It starts where the Installation screencast leaves off and takes you through database setup and updating your web.config. 

The SQL Provider setup changed a bit between versions 1.2 and 1.3 making the old screencast incorrect.  I hope to be writing a more detailed post about SQL provider setup in the day ahead.

Anyway, this is a very short video but hopefully someone will find it somewhat helpful.  It is available in both an in page Flash version and Windows Media format.

Didn't work for me util I added connectionStingName="mySQLname" to the MSSQLBlogProvider in web.config

See WorkItemId 3557

You might find this odd, but if you change the name of the connection string name from BlogEngine to something else, you will need to let the provider know.  

BE is set to expect a connection string named BlogEngine as used in the default web.config and in the screencast.  If you want to use a connection string name other than BlogEngine, you must add the connectionStringName property to the MSSQLProvider in the web.config.

I really looked at this as a more advanced option and didn't include it in the installation video.

How do you make the Screencasts especial hosting does need?

I used Camtasia Studio for making these screencasts.  It is a great tool.  I simply upload the files and it is ready for viewing on my host.  Nothing special is required on the hosting side.

Hey Now Al,
Another great vid. I just got the MSSQL Provider setup from the assistance of your screencast.
