We want to install WP with MS SQL server 2005 on Windows 2000 server. We've download DB extraction plugin and installed all PHP, url re-write in the appropriate directory as instructed in standard WP installation guide for MS SQL server on Windows.
While starting the installation, it first prompts that no config file is created so press next for WP to create it. After that it brings the DB where we provide SQL server name, db name, user, password and leave everything else as it is. Pressing next button throws an error "Could not establish connection with the database".
We have verified all the steps but no luck. Could you tell us what is the possible cause for this error and how to make it work with MS SQL server?
