I trying to add MySQL as database on the setup module Orchard.Setup and i have comming a bit now but in one step there is something that using sqlserver instead of my mysql provider.

I running the full source code but trying to only change in Orchard.Setup but when i running and debugging i finding that in the file ShellCOntainerFactory.cs line 47 there is a big function that runs and somewhere that i can not find calling the function DataModule.AttachToComponentRegistration in the file DataModule.cs and there its somehow has been changed from MySql provider to sql stuff that i can not find where its being set.

Do anyone has any idea where its calling the AttachToComponentRegistration function and where the sql stuff sets?

Becouse i getting this error message when i run the setup with MySQL:

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
Please help, i hope someone that worked on the sql implemenation knows anything about this...

That gets called automatically by Autofac (since it's a Module). You might be able to use [OrchardSuppressDependency(...)] to quash it ...

randompete: I dont understand... what is Autofac?

Autofac is the dependency injection framework Orchard uses.

You might want to familiarise yourself with and the rest of the developer documentation before attempting anything as difficult as replacing the database layer ...
