    Have you considered setting up apache rather than IIS? Much easier you setup and configure.

    Re: Problems getting joomla to work

    not thought about that, i'll give it a go but that still won't sort out the sql issue

    this is the specific error

    error No. 1045
    Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

    I currently run an intranet site on joomla using http://apache2triad.net/

    Has everything you need in one package. Just drop in the joomla core and run the install and you are good to go.

    Are you sure the MySQL service is running?

    Re: Problems getting joomla to work

    would i need to remove iis from my server in order to install apache cause i currently have a maths program that is constantly being used set up in iis so i couldn't take that off.

    Yes you can have both running on the same box. There are a few ways of setting it up. Take alook here http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...r=asc&start=15

    Instead of uniservity, try Moodle. Moodle is an open source course management system.

    Re: Problems getting joomla to work

    I'd recommend getting a combined package of the core services - "WAMP Server" springs to mind. It includes Apache, PHP and MySQL and pre-configures them for you. It also includes a system tray service manager.

    Well if its for a demo you could install apache2triad on a Laptop / PC and create your site to show SMT and then just transfer to a webserver at a later date if SMT like it.
