Error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server


Posted in ,

I oftentimes encounter this specific error when I try to connect to my SQL server.

"An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005,
this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.
(provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2)"

Possible cause would be your SQL Service isn't running.

To fix this - check the SQL service under the Services.msc if it is actively running. If not enable it. This will let you log into your local server with ease.

Heartbreak by Anonymous


Heartbreak is an odd kind of pain because you're not dying and you're not even sick...

For all intents & purposes, you're perfectly fine.
Yet inside, where your heart used to be, you hurt so much that you can't breathe, you can't sleep and you can't stop the tears from falling.

You may eat too much; you may not eat at all.

Non-smokers light up...
Non-drinkers find a bar...

A broken heart is one of the world's greatest equalizer, because it can turn even the sweetest angel into a freaking devil.
