    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.

    Thanks guys

    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.

    Have you tried the solution on this ms kb KB840685

    WORKAROUND

    To do this, follow these steps.
