Unable to Connect to database server

  • Unable to Connect to database server
  • Hi, I have run into a problem when trying to connect the database with the project files on my arvixe server.  I go to mysite.myarvixeserver.com and I get the SF Manager project start up screen.  I put in the information, SQL server, server name, port, username, password, and the name of the database I uploaded. Upon continuing I receive this error:

    There was an error trying to connect to the Database Server:
    Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.

    What does this error mean and how do I fix it?  How do i retrieve the 'LoaderExceptions property'?  This is my first sitefinity project, am I doing this whole thing wrong?
  • Hello Tyler,

    Please make sure that you have all your configuration files in their respective folder and you have set the connection string properly so it matches your server.

    When trying to deploy a website to Arvixe, please make sure to check their blog about Sitefinity deployment:


    as well as our documentation on that matter:


    Also please make sure that the SQL user has enough permissions and the schema owner is dbo / or another one based on your settings..

    All the best,
