  • Plesk Sitebuilder for Windows


After reinstalling MSSQL, or after importing a database from another server or correcting related accounts, the file web.config of Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder contains incorrect information.

For example:

<add name="WSBConnection" connectionString="Connect Timeout=180;Data Source=localhost;User Id=D836976A742949B1B30D3DC3E348DEBD;Pwd=747D358E96B64CEDA4898C077AF0F250WsB-5.0.0-forever!..;Database=sitebuilder5ABE07F3E75B98F48B41A9DBCB1D3791"/>


Make sure that the UserID, Pwd, and Database correspond to those in MSSQL.

After making all necessary changes, encrypt the configuration file section with the following command:

\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis  -pef connectionStrings [path to web dir]
