I'm having trouble setting up our external web server.
Since we have a pretty small audience, we got one cheap server and are using SQL Server Express for the database and ASP.NET for the application, all on one box. (We are using GoDaddy for the hosting.)
Regardless of how bad these constraints are, this is where I'm stuck.
Everything is working OK, except that SQL Server will not successfully complete an install. Originally I was using the Web Platform Installer for it, but it was trying to read the entire installer into memory to calculate the file hash.
Running the installer works almost all of the way to the end, which verifies to me that the server meets the minimum reqs to install.
