How to create an SQL Express database

In this guide we explain how you can create a database. We use the Microsoft SQL Express database server that can be downloaded from the Microsoft website.

Step 1. - Download and install Microsoft SQL Express.

You can download the Microsoft SQL Express Database Server from the following location:

Download details: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition

Step 2 - Create your database in Microsoft SQL Express

You can create a database and the appropriate database tables by opening a windows command prompt (Start->Run->cmd.exe), and starting the SQL Command interpreter by typing:

cd C:\
sqlcmd -S .\SQLExpress

Once the SQL command interpreter is running, you should enter the following commands

create database ozeki

use ozeki

sp_addLogin 'ozekiuser', 'ozekipass'

sp_addsrvrolemember 'ozekiuser', 'sysadmin'

Step 3 - Make Microsoft SQL Express ready to accept your username and password

Unless you have mixed mode authentication configured in SQL express, you will not be able to connect to your database from Ozeki NG because Ozeki NG runs as a system service in the background. To enable mixed - mode authentication, you should open the registry editor (Start->run->regedit.exe) and in the Registry you should change the LoginMode value from 1 to "2", here:


LoginMode =2

After this change you might have to restart the SQL Express to make sure the changes take effect.
