I'm having trouble getting a very simple CCS website to load locally for testing. I have XP-Pro computer which has IIS 5.1 loaded. I think I need tips on setting up the server db connection, publishing it properly, etc. Please help as client needs this asap.

Normally I would prefer all files published on c:\Inetpub\wwwroot

Say your CCS project is inside c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\project1CCS

It's logical that your web files are inside c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\project1WWW

Therefore on projectsettings the server path is c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\project1WWW

And the live URL is http://localhost/project1WWW

This is local testing, for CCS, and WWW files when your page moved to a live site then you edit SERVERUrl of common.asp to something like

Regarding ServerDB if it's SQL let CCS handle it or find the connection string on common.asp then simply edit the datasource.

If it's an mdb, then use a server variable instead of coding d:/..... or c:/....

Normally I would use something like

Dim dbpath_
dbpath_ = Request.ServerVariables("APPL_PHYSICAL_PATH") & "\project1WWWyourmdb.mdb;"

ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="&dbpath_&"Persist Security Info=False"

Please experiment with this connection
