 1Running BlogEngine.NET using SQL Server 2005 and up:
 3If you wish to use SQL Server to store all your blog data, this folder has all the 
 4information you'll likely need.  The scripts included here are for SQL Server 2005 and up.
 5They could be modified to be used with earlier or later versions if needed.
 7Included is the Initial Setup script for use with new installation of 3.0.  Also,
 8included is an upgrade script for earlier versions.  In addition, you 
 9will find a sample web.config file with the needed changes to use SQL Server.
11Instructions for new setup:
131. Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to your SQL Server.
142. Create a new database if desired.
153. Execute the Setup script against the database you want to add the BlogEngine data to.
164. Rename SQLServerWeb.Config to Web.config and copy it to your blog folder.  (This will
17overwrite your existing web.config file.  If this is not a new installation, make sure 
18you have a backup).
195. Update the BlogEngine connection string in the web.config.
206. Surf out to your Blog and see the welcome post.
217. Login with the username admin and password admin.  Change the password.
