With 1.6 we were now able to use SQL databases on our windows IIS Server to install Joomla. SQL is now a value thats able to be selected as a database type in the inital install. I am attempting to do a HOT Start install of one of the 1.6 templates how ever in the install of the template under the database configuration section in one of the 1.6 Templates only My SQL and MySQLI are valid inputs for database types.


Any help would be GREEEEATLY appreciated.. i attempted to install a 1.5 template over top of a 1.6 install and lost all sample data so thats why im trying to do a fresh 1.6 install with sample data useing the HOT start process.

HotStart is nothing but classic Joomla with modified sample data SQL file (it imports our sample data, not Joomla's default sample data).

So, if you can't install default Joomla on this server, you can't install our HotStart as well.

If you can install default Joomla on your server, use the same settings when installing HotStart.

I can install the classic 1.6 install downloaded from the Joomla site. However there database setup section of the installation allows for SQLserver 2008 to be used instead of just MySQL based databases.

When using the install processes from your HOT start install you do not have the same options during the database setup as i did when i did the initial install using the downloaded install files from Joomlas site...

You can try to manually change includes\database.php before installation to match original(from regular joomla) after installation on MS SQL

Not sure which database php file you refering to edit, the one in the hotstart zip file? prior to the installation to match the file information of the one thats currently installed and working?

Would have to be prior to install sense the installation wont go past the the database setup page with out a database being selected. and sense my IT folks wont install MySQL on this windows server lol i'll have to hope this will do the trick.

You can look at batabase.php of standard joomla to see how it looks after installation.

Then befor you start with hot star change it's batabase.php
Main thing is probaly:
jimport( 'joomla.database.database.mysql' );
to
jimport( 'joomla.database.database.mssql' );

but I'am not sure about that. never did that.
