Installing DBXL – beware of multiple hostnames!

 When you install Qdabra DBXL on your server you may encounter errors such as "Error initializing DBXL database" -->The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found". One of the reasons this happens is that your site is configured to use multiple hostnames or multiple IP addresses. If DBXL picks the wrong hostname/IP, the installation will fail.

The easiest workaround is to go to your site settings (IIS management console) and temporarily remove all hostnames/IP addresses that will not work. Make sure only to leave the hostname that the currently logged-in user can access. After DBXL installs successfully you can re-add the additional hostnames and/or IP addresses.
