we have been made to take over the hosting of a database that we used to outsource, since I have no former experience with SQL I don’t really know what I am doing , so here goes.
I have installed 2012 sql express on our 2008 server and have downloaded the files via FTP from the old hosts of the site.

I want to run the database so that internal staff can still connect  to it the same way using IE, I don’t need to be able to connect from outside the network VIA the internet.
I have downloaded the back up of the database and all the site documents from the old supplier
My question is can I get this database running on my server and what changes should I need looking it too to make it all work
