unable to get mojoPortal to work, need help with setup

Hi,

I am trying out mojoPortal and having difficulty getting it to work.

I downloaded mojoPortal version "mojoportal-2-3-9-7-mssql-net40-deploymentfiles", set it up on a Windows 7 Home premium running IIS 7.5 and when i browsed the site it correctly showed me the message no database was configured.

I then downloaded My SQL version - mysql-5.6.11-winx64 & connector version - mysql-connector-net-6.6.5, I then created a empty schema - mojoprod.

I then updated the connection in the user.xml as follows:

  <add key="MySqlConnectionString" value="Server=localhost;Database=mojoprod;Uid=root;Pwd=mysql;Charset=utf8;" />

Now when i browse the site after those change "http://14.97.247.212/Setup/Default.aspx" I get a "Page cannot be displayed" message on screen.

Please can you guide me to complete this setup quickly.

Regards,

Ramesh

Re: unable to get mojoPortal to work, need help with setup

For MySql you need to download our data layer for mysql from the codeplex download page and replace the dlls in the /bin folder with the ones from there(MySql connector is included in the package you don't need to download it separately). See the article Using MySql.

You need to make sure that .NET framework 4 or ideally 4.5 is installed and enabled on the site in IIS.

Then if you still get errors see Basic Troubleshooting

Note that if user.config exists in the root of the site then that is where to set the connection string.

Re: unable to get mojoPortal to work, need help with setup

Thank for the prompt response Joe.

I do have .net framework 4.0 configured for this site.

I'll setup the data layer as instructed and go through the other links you provided.

I'll get back to you if I have any difficulty.

 

Ramesh.
