Hi richard, thanks for your reply.
I have downloaded the microsoft SQL free express and the admin studio, but cant 
figure out what to do now it's instaled, i don't know nothing about sql or how 
to use it, you see.
My idea is that if i created an sql database, i have a login script that logs 
users in to a profile server, and the script can log the users in to the 
database, stating what workstation logged in, time, date, and so forth.
The other sql server i have also downloaded and tried is my sql for the web, 
that's a commandline app, i tried figuring that out to build some kind of web 
interfaces as well.
the microsoft express runs fine, it's just a question of what to do with it.
Kind regards: Jamie.

  I'm running Sql Server Express OK.  What seems to be the problem with it?
  Is it running when you look in the ControlPanel>Admin Services list for local 
  I also have the dFree downloaded Administration Studio but have not heard of 
a Web Based version, if you have a url I'll look at it or thry and Google 
  I use VWD and Express with Sql Server Express and had no problems so 
  What can you tell so far about the status of Sql Server Express on your 
machine?  It needs to be running before you can use it.
  I think you can have it set to automatically start when the computer is 
booted from the Control Panel> Admin Tools > Local Services but I've not looked 
at it in some time.  I guess the first thing is to figure out if you have a 
good Download and Install and that Sql Server is running so let me know if you 
can check that out or I'll figure out how to do it if you need help.
  After that it should be simple enough to build a test DataBase using, 
the Admin Tools or something else.

    Hi there.
    This is directed to all of the database gooroows out there.
    I cant actually figure out how to get sql running, so i was wondering, has 
anyone else had it working? i obtained the admin web interface to control sql 
via a web interface.
    I am not a commandline kind of person you see, and where ever possible use 
gui applications.
    Also, has anyone ever used microsoft sql express? i have a coppy on here, 
but cant figure it out, i have looked at the help and it's not exactly clear.
    As a note to the php admin interface, anyone got it to run? i havn't, even 
though i have php installed on a web server here.
    Kind regards: Jamie.
