Coldfusion, Access Database, New Server -- Data Source Not Found
Posted on 2005-05-16
I am very much a Newbie and very much confused.
I used Coldfusion MX7, Acess 2000, and Dreamweaver MX 2004 and am trying to load my dynamic site on a Crystaltech server. Since they do not allow RDS connections, I have been having problems getting my CF pages to work. I keep getting the error "Data source Name could not be found."
I have configured and tested the DNS through CF Administrator and it works. Although after testing, it gives me the info: "connection string dsn=name" and I don't know what to do with that. So maybe that's the problem. The site worked fine off my hard drive; it was only once I put it up on the Crystaltech site that I had problems.
I am learning as I go along, and my client has been patient, but it's wearing thin and my frustration level is increasing. I have read and tried so many things, that I am more confused than ever, so please HELP!
Thank-you in advance.
