To install the job site, you need to complete the following two steps:
First, copy all the files from the CD-ROM to a directory on your computer. Next, launch Internet Services Manager and create a new virtual directory named aspnetjobs that points to the directory where you copied the files.
Next, install all the tables and stored procedures used by the job site. An installation script for the database objects is included on the CD-ROM that accompanies this book. Follow these steps:
The script creates a new database named AspNETJobs . It automatically adds all the necessary database tables and stored procedures. Finally, it adds a new login named AspNETJobsUser with the password secret .
The InstallAspNETJobsDatabase.sql script assumes that you have your SQL Server database configured to use SQL Server authentication. If you have only Windows authentication enabled, you need to manually add a login that has access to the AspNETJobs database. You'll also need to modify the Web.Config file to use the proper login.
After you complete these steps, you can request the home page of the job site application by entering the following URL in your browser:
If you encounter problems when executing the InstallAspNETJobsDatabase.sql script, try stopping and starting your database server to clear away any existing connections.
