Hi I been using the kentico 8 and i have upgraded it to 8.1 but due to the errors, I wanted to downgrade back to Kentico 8 and try again. I have already pasted all the folders but the site is showing the System Error with sql connection failed. I have checked the web.config but the connection string is correct. Please do help. Thanks.
The error is stated below
The application could not connect to the database, please check the connection string in the web.config file and SQL server availability.
Try restarting IIS. The connection could be cached. Also ensure IIS is pointing to the correct directory.
I've got this same message and I've restarted IIS, double checked connection string, etc. It's working on my local machine using the same database (shared sql db on network vm).
