This sharepoint site was working until we had to demote and promote the server. (Don't ask). I had a good backup of the database but when i restore them I get the "Under Configuration" page when trying to connect to http://servername
and I get "Cannot connect to the configuration database" when I try to connect to http://localhost
or when I try to open Sharepoint 3.0 Central Administration.
What I did to get to this point. I removed and reinstalled WSS 3.0. This re-created the Windows Internal Database and then I ran the Sharepoint Products and Tech Configuration Wizard. After that completed I restored the admin and config databases to the ones created by the wizard.
I'm sure I did something wrong but I don't know what.
Anyone care to point out what i did wrong?
Thanks in advance!
