Hi. I have just installed 2005 in my on my database server.
Now, I have a web server and will need to access my database
from my web server for simple stuff such as querying the database
and checking tables, etc, etc. What should I be installing on the
Web server? Should I be downloading the full installation like I
did on my database server? Seems like over-kill, no? What are
the 2005 basics I will need for accessing my DB server over the network?

Thanks in advance.

is it the express or full version?

Hi. Thanks for responding.
Its the full version of the express.
That is what I have installed on the database server.
Now, I just want to be able to query the db server from
the web server and make sure that the code I am writing
on the web server is checking out with the tables, etc.
I dont know much about networking SQL - do I need to
reinstall the full express package on my web server?

thanks for any help.

No i dont think so. I do alot of web development using Visual Web Developer. My development machine has jus the IDE (No SQL) and my DB server has SQL. All i do is create a connection pointing to the DB server.

ok, thanks. yes, i use the same IDE. but, in VWD you can't run queries, you just have access to tables.
