"I couldn't find a database server on '(IP ADDRESS)':"
"[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified"
How do I get SS to see external database I am using the install.php to install silverstripe and I was able to get everything but the database working on iis 7.5
using module mssql
The first thing I would check is the SQL Server Network configuration. By default TCPIP connections are disabled. I assume it's 2.4.x not 3 you are installing?
