How to connect to MSSQL remotely using Visual FoxPro
Posted by on 21 December 2010 04:19 PM

Upon assisting a customer with this, the following connection string worked fine on a Windows 7, Visual Fox Pro 9.0 setup -

 

DRIVER=SQL Server Native Client 10.0;SERVER=SERVER.arvixe.com;UID=myuserid;PWD=mypassword;APP=Microsoft Visual FoxPro;DATABASE=mydatabase;

Where SERVER is the name of the server you are on (based on the email that you received) and
myuserid, mypassword and mydatabase are outlined from within your control panel under the Databases section

I am going to purchase personal ASP account, i must ensure that:
when installing NOP 1.90 manually, how can i get a connectionstring and
put it into configure file before this installation, secondly do supporting the publishing NOP into your web through the MS Visual studio 2010 ?

You would simply use the following type of connection string in your nopcommerce config file -
<connectionStrings>
<add name="NopSqlConnection" connectionString="Data Source=sql2k802.discountasp.net;Initial Catalog=DBNAME;User ID=DBUSERID;Password=DBUSERPW;Integrated Security=FALSE;Persist Security Info=False;Connect Timeout=120" />
</connectionStrings>

You would specify the db name, db username and password when creating them through the control panel.
