The question Mike adresses here is the following:
"When I try to install Magelia Webstore, Web Platform Installer wants to install SQL Server Express but I would like to use the SQL Server R2 that is already installed"
Here is the solution that Aloys from our R&D team came up with :
First you have to know that WebPI has its own logic and Magelia WebStore setup process is independent from Web Platform Installer. So, even if you install Magelia WebStore using WebPI and install a SQL Server Database, during Magelia WebStore setup process,
you would still be able to use your SQL Server R2 instance.
But the best solution, as you suggest, is to apply the following procedure and that way, you wil not have to install SQL Server Express
In Web Platform Installer, go to « Options », and check « Click to enable remote database support » indicate the name of the existing DB:
Then click install and web PI will ask which database to use and you will be able to indicate your DB with the password for the sa account
This will enable you NOT TO install SQL Server Express
During the installation proess, Magelia Serup will ask you again for this information. This is due to the fact that Magelia WebStore is independant from Magelia WebStore.
Please confirm that it solved the problem.
