I have SQL2008 installed on my Win2008 server, and its been working fine - I have sites running using SQL databases etc..
I thought I would install SQL2008 SP1, but after install I cannot connect to SQL via Management Studio, and in configuration manager I cannot start SQL?
TITLE: Connect to Server
Cannot connect to #MYINSTANCENAME#.
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: -1)
I'm not really a techie so a bit stuck?? any ideas??
