Creating a SQL Express database

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

The goal is to treat databases like documents:  When the user creates a new 'document', the application programmically creates.  Currently the databse being used is SQLite, we are looking at SQL Express as an option, but we must overcome this hertial first:

Q: Are there any good examples of creating a empty SQL Express database programmatically?

So that i can host it in other systems as well without any windows authentication.  I know that VS2010 setup also installs the SQL client which is requiredto create and manage sql databse files/quries etc

 

i dont know the default userID and password for SQLauthentication. As the express setup did not asked any credentials while installing SQL components

Create user is creating aspxxxx.mdf database in my app_data folder

  

I had already setup roles for my pages and requirements call for ability to manage and create users.

So i was looking at code that allows you to do so using membership, even though i got the page to work, it was creating a database in my app_data folder.. i already have SQLExpress setup with the asp schema, but cant figure out how to get my application to use that instead of creating the db in the folder?

What am i missing or doing wrong?

I have the following setup in my web.config file..

		<authentication mode="Windows"/>
		<authorization>
			<deny users="?"/>
		</authorization>
    <membership>
      <providers>
        <add name="SqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
        connectionStringName="connectn"
        enablePasswordRetrieval="false"

Creating an database search application in VS C#

  
Hello everyone, I wish to create a C# application that will have a form and a text box where I can enter a text, and then ask the application to search if this text exists in a database.

database size limit about SQL Server 2005 Express

  
I know that there is a size limit (4 GB) for SQL Server 2005 Express, but I am not quite sure if the limit is applied for only ONE database data file or for ALL the database data, suppose I have two databases DB1 and DB2, so which of the following statement is correct? A. The size limit for DB1 is 4GB, and the size limit for DB2 is also 4GB, so if DB1 is 3G and DB2 is 3.5G,that will be OK. B. The total size for both DB1 and DB2 can not be larger than 4GB, which means if DB1 is 3G, then DB2 can not be large than 1G.

Error when running an SQL script to restore a database on SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

  
Hi, At work, I use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. At home, I also use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. Whenever I do work on the database at work, I usually restore the database at home (or vice versa) I have been using the following SQL scripts to back up the database and to restore the same database (at work or at home). BackupRealEstate.sql USE Master BACKUP DATABASE [RealEstate] TO DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, INIT, NAME = N'RealEstate-Full Database Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10 GO RestoreRealEstate.sql USE Master RESTORE DATABASE [RealEstate] FROM DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH  FILE = 1, NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10 GO Everything worked fine until I replaced my 8yo home computer with a newer and faster one. My new home computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I use the latest SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. When I tried to run the above restore SQL script, I got the following error message: Msg 3101, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. There was no other application/process using this database. Can someone please help me? Regards,
