Companyweb on Server 2003 SBS not working. In IIS if I try to browse the companyweb it fails to display. Likewise users unable to view in IE. Errors started occurring around 10pm Friday night and they have not been able to view since. Database files are present in the default location. I have looked at the various eventlogs but not found anything that might explain how to fix.

Hang on... what are all those errors in the log about?

It looks like the SQL database broke, at first glance.

Looks that way. It cant connect to the database. The files are there. I dont know how to get into SQL to check anything. Its the standard install of SBS 2003 and unlike SQL 2005+ there is no management console. Is there one I can download. Tehre are many repeated errors referring to the problem. The one attached refers to the database issue.

If you have R2, then SQLRun_Tools.exe on the SBS CD.

Else, you can check Add/Remove Programs for the SQL Tools and if not that, then get Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express, which I know should work on R2.

The 32-bit version of SQL Server Management Studio Express can be downloaded from here: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9729744

The 64-bit version is at http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9729745

Your SQL Server Express instance will be hidden, so when you run Management Studio you will need to type the following in to the server name field: \\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query

This assumes that your instance of SQL Server Express is actually running. If it is not, you won't be able to connect as above.  Type services.msc from a command prompt or the "run box" then look down the list for "SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS)" - what is the status of the service?
