    Unanswered: Hosted SQL Server: Where to start?

    I just added a 30MB SQL Server 2000 space for my site.

    My host said that it only provides the space and nothing else. They will not be providing any means to connect to the database like Enterprise Manager 2000 or MS Client Network Utility. I'm not familiar with any of these and I looked at Microsoft's site to download it but I cannot find it.

    Do you have any suggestions on how I go about setting up my hosted SQL Server? If those utilities are costly, are there cheaper/free alternatives?

    Thanks.

    A decent free SQL app you can try is:

    http://www.aquafold.com/

    Its free for personal use or $89 for a corporate license. It connects to SQL and Oracle dbs.

    Somebody referred to the SQL Server Web Data Administrator.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    It is an MSI file. How do I install this on a shared hosting account?

    Thanks.

    Get the IP address/username/password they are giving you to connect to the SQL Server. You can the register the server with the IP Address. That's "usually" how the webhosts handle this.
