Sharepoint services error

I have a single-server installation of WSS3.0 using Windows Internal Database and also has a standalone install of Search Server Express 2008 on the same machine.

In the settings (Operations--Services on Server) for Windows SharePoint Services Search Service I changed the Content Access Account from Local Service to a local account I created called SPCrawler.

Now I get errors in the event log and the Admin Site does not show all the content (shows Render Error) for a little while, then works, then has the error again. Seems to be after a job runs and then it reverts back. I can't get to the Operations page again until it reverts back.

I tried to set the Content Access Account back to Local Service but it just takes me to the Unknown Error page with a link back to the site.

In the Event log I get:

Event 5214:
Insufficient SQL database permissions for user '' in database SharePoint_AdminContent
(notice the empty quotes for user!)

Event 3760:
SQL Database 'WSS_Content' on SQL Server instance 'np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$Microsoft##SSEE\sql\query' not found. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.
Cannot open database "WSS_Content" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'BC1CNQ\SPCrawler'.
A severe error occurred on the current command.  The results, if any, should be discarded.

Can anyone help?

You have to give the user access on the SQL Server.
To do that you need to install the Management Studio Express

and then connect to the pipe as described here:

Then you have to give the user SPCrawler access on your content database WSS_Content

Ok, tried to do that - it seemed to fix the admin site but then broke the user site in a similar way.
I then changed the Content Access account to Administrator and it seemed to fix it all.

I compared the Local Service permissions with another server I have and found that indeed it was missing access to WSS_Content. I am leaving the account as Administrator however since this is essentially the same permissions (even though it says not to use an admin account).

The reason I got into this mess in the first place was that no search results were being returned for my users except for me since I am site admin. I found that I needed to activate Office Server Site Search by going to Application Management-->Manage Web Application Features.

Sharepoint sure is touchy!
