Use the following instructions to install version 1.0.34 through 1.0.49 of WebDocs Windows.



Setting Up SQL Express 2005

  1. If you do not already have SQL Server Express 2005, install it.

    SQL Server Configuration Manager opens.

    1. Expand SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration and click Protocols for SQLEXPRESS
    2. Double-click TCP/IP.
    3. In Enabled, choose Yes.
    4. Click OK
  4. Restart SQL Server Express:
    1. Click SQL Server 2005 Services
    2. Double-click SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS)
    3. Click Restart.

    Note: This is equivalent to SQL Enterprise Manager in SQL Server 2000.


Installing the WebDocs Server

  1. Select all options in the WebDocs installer.

    Note: If you are installing on a server with SQL Server 2005 Express, choose localhost\SQLEXPRESS for the database server host instead of just localhost, because SQL Server 2005 supports multiple named server instances on a single PC.

  2. In util.asp, set WebDocs user and password to match your SQL Server user info for sa.
  3. In Web.Config:
    1. Set your DSN information for the sa user.

    • In SQL Server, choose the SQL Server instance or host name.
    • In UID, type sa.
    • In PWD, type the password for sa.
    • In Database, type webdocs.
    • Do not make any changes to Version Query
  3. Click Test Connection to test the connection.
  4. Click Determine Version to determine the current version of the WebDocs database. 
  5. If the webdocs database does not exist and the current version is unknown, click Create Database.
  6. In Update Script Info, check the scripts you need to run based on your current version and the version you are updating to.

    For example: If you had version 1.0.16, check the 1.0.18 and all the rest of the script versions to update.

  7. Back up the webdocs database:
    • If the SQL Server instance is on the same PC as the WebDocs server, check Perform backup prior to running first script.
    • Otherwise, use SQL Enterprise Manager to back up the database manually.
  8. Click Run Scripts to create or update the webdocs database.

Installing Soap SDK and Microsoft Web Service Extensions

  1. Install Microsoft Soap SDK 3.0 - C:\program files\webdocs\soapsdk.exe
