New but excited about the possibilities of Orchard CMS. For our configuration a dedicated winserver 2008 r2 IIS 7.5 with SQL Server 2008 R2 after many hours are not able to get around login failures for the "database connection string".
After lots of searching, more hours than I want to admit to here spent on this, bugging the dedicated support staff (who are in my opinion the BEST in the business, bar none) not able to get to a start up screen for Orchard.
My brain is like scrambled eggs now because I know replies to this will ask "can you give us the error". This was always a failed login. But I can login into management studio under windows authentication.
So has to be someone out there that may have faced this problem. If you have that is great post that soluiton or any idea of how to get around this. If you are a tech and want to make a few dollars by squaring this away for me, pm me (this is
my first post so I don't know if pm available in this discussion) or give me your contact info.
During this process I tried to install several times. Noticed in IIS in app pool 4 instances of orchard cms running.
So if you can help in anyway would be appreciated.
