#50071: Unable to connect to the database SharePoint_Config_29c26fca
932abcb6 on xxxxxx\Microsoft##SSEE. Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.
I have followed most of the many reports of this issue but they mainly relate to a failed MS update that broke SharePoint and does not seem to be my issue.
I can connect to the database via SQL Server Management Studio Express using np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$Microsof
This may be relevant. If connecting to companyweb via IE8 I just get a 404. If I try using Firefox I am prompted for a user and password and then get:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

In offering suggestions please don't assume I have tried the obvious. I am completely lost when it comes to the SharePoint Services and SQL in general. As an end user this is an area you never venture into until it breaks!
