Hi David,

The project set up is already with me but i am not able to set up with the provided system configuration.

Am getting error: "No Connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"

  • Is there any more detail in the event log?
  • Are you runing Visual Studio as an administrator
  • Do you have full access rights to the folder that EPiServer is installed in?

In your stack trace there is:

"....A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections..." 

Is not just a problem with ConnectionString? Are you able to login to SQL with settings from your ConnectionString?

Yes I am able to run properly without any issue.

Now i have figured out this issue, but now am getting below issue when am running application.

====================================================

Server Error in '/' Application.

EPiServer 7.0.586.24 can only be used with database version 7003, current version is 6201. Make sure both database and assemblies are upgraded correctly. 

================================================

Thanks.

The core of episerver require a database with a higher version number ie. you have tried to connect an old database to a newer solution. Not sure if possible but there is an update command in nuget package manager console if you have the correct version of episerver. If not you are able to update a database via the deployment center tool. That tool is available for version of episerver to 7.5 after that they use nuget inside visual studio. But do be able to use episerver nuget you also need to configure VS to use the nuget feed that can be found at http://nuget.episerver.com

Can you try running the Update-EPiDatabase command in the Nuget package manager console?

As Eric mentioned you need to use Deployment center to upgdate when you have CMS verison 7.0. Updates using NuGet start from after CMS 7.5. But your database seem to be even older, I'm guessing CMS 6. That can hardly be an MVC site (MVC was first supported in 7.0), are you perhaps connected to the wrong database?

Ah, good point @Magnus and @Eric.
"Do you remember back in the old days, when we used Deployment center?" Aparently, I do not :)

Haha well I had the pleasure to work with the good old tool the other day :) nice to use actually when you need to install db on a sql server directly
