I have successfully installed basic version of DNN without a problem.  My company has a DNN test site that was set up by someone else that I took over for with no knowledge and no documentation.  It is set up as a child portal which makes setting up internal links especially hard.  I want to move it to a production server as the parent and only portal.  I tried to back up the DB and it cause many problems due to being a child portal.  I apparently need to separate the DB of the parent and the child portals (he used the same DB instead of different DBs), I have tried opening it with the SQL Express studio manager and don't see anything about the different portals.  When I moved the backedup DBs to another PC and tried to run the DNN site without seperating I get this error:

Server Error in '/hypercube' Application.

Could not find stored procedure 'dbo.GetPortals'.

I have to get this site moved and want it to be the parent portal, due to the fact a module we use has issues being used on a child portal.  What do I have to do.  Please be as specific as you can.  I know about the alias however I need a complete move and I would like to make this a clean move (only files needed).

I've never messed with moving DNN but the error points to the SQL database. It can't find a stored procedure in the database.

My guess is you need to try to work on moving the database over.

the good thing here at least is that you now have the connection open, can you open the db using the SQL Server Management Studio?
