installed today the forum-software
all went fine until the point : Web Wiz Forums Database setup is now complete
that was OK, as I could see on the host-server via HeidiSQL and via SQL Server Management Studio,
going to the forum admin area, it says
CONNECTION NOT POSSIBLE folder needs permissions.... blabla
WHAT IS THIS: I do not use a database-folder, which has on the hoster ALL permissions.
I have a connection String which I added to the web.config
BUT the application does not use my connectionString (local VisualStudio does) and the credentials in the database-settings.asp, which I set according to the web.config are irgnored ...

Classic ASP does not use a web.config file for database connections instead the connectiong string is within one of the ASP files.

In the case of web wiz forums the database connection string is stored in the files within the 'database' folder.

In order for web wiz forums to install correctly using the install wizard you need to have read, write, and modify permissions set for the websites IUSR account on the forums 'database' folder in order that the database settings and connection string can be setup in the files stored in the 'database' folder.
