Database Connection Error after uninstalling MS SQL 2008
« on: March 19, 2019, 03:45:08 PM »
I have roundcube Version 0.8.4 installed on a Windows 2008 Server, SP2 64 Bit machine. This  server also has MS SQL 2008 & 2014 installed.

The database was migrated off of 2008 and put on MS SQL 2014. I updated the db.inc.php file to point to the MSSQL 2014. It worked fine. I know it was workign off the 2014 instance because I detached the 2008 database and everything still worked.

Now the problem...I un-installed MS SQL 2008 as I had moved all databases. Roundcube has never been able to find the database since then, throwing this error:

DATABASE ERROR: CONNECTION FAILED!
Unable to connect to the database!
Please contact your server-administrator.

The connection string should be right because it worked prior to the software un-install of MS SQL 2008.

Any suggestion? I am at a loss as to why roundcube cannot find the database anymore?
