The readme.txt mentions a "Data" directory, in which you can find the basic structure of a stack exchange site. The readme file states:
The Data directory contains a blank schema for a "Stack" site and the schema for data explorer.
Within the source code I cannot find that directory.
Furthermore, the web.config requires two connection strings:
<connectionStrings> <add name="AppConnection" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=DataExplorer;Integrated Security=True;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" /> <add name="ReaderConnection" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=!!DB!!;Integrated Security=True;" /> </connectionStrings>
The first connection string is self explanatory from the readme.
Run migrate.local.bat in the migration directory, then import some data about the sites from the SeedData/sites.sql script. It assumes the DB is called "DataExplorer", if you name it differently or have a named instance, you will have to edit the batch file (which I did for the SQLEXPRESS instance).
The following line states:
Import data into the Stack Overflow database (and any other databases you wish to query) alternatively if a DB exists you can simple run queries that do not depend on data like "SELECT 1"
This connection string can be pointed at any db (which works), but I would like to point it at this empty SE schema.
The readme suggests this should exist but I can't find it. Any pointers?
