Sharepoint on SBS 2003 wont start???
I have an issue with my Small Business Server 2003. My company homepage wont open and i get sharepoint errors. i tried restarting the sharepoit service but it just stops again, almost instantly. i have checked the permissions for sharepoint and all is well.
anyone have any ideas, before i revert to a backup tape.

Event ID 1000
I have googled this and found only a couple if things 1st was about security and the other was sql, i have re-installed sql, and the permissions on the sharepoint are as they should be.
also the companyweb page comes back with this :
Cannot connect to the configuration database. For tips on troubleshooting this error, search for article 823287 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com.
i have checked this aswell and comes back to permissions, but as i say, they are correct. as far as i can tell nothing has attacked the server, and no one has access to it except myself, and i havent changed anything in months, but this has only started happening over the last week.
Event ID 1000
#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_Config on SBSSERVER\SharePoint. Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.
