Installation Issues with SharePoint 2007 and Other IIS Environments

When installing DBXL on servers with SharePoint 2007 or servers which have any special .config entries you may get the following error in the Qdabra Error Log.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Database Accelerator
Event Category: None
Event ID: 2000
Description: Error initializing DBXL database. Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=utf-8', but expected 'text/xml'. The request failed with the error message: -- The file you are attempting to save or retrieve has been blocked from this Web site by the server administrators.

One of the possible reasons for this was covered in a previous blog post. That blog post also provided a solution for the issue. Another possible solution follows.

Locate the web.config file located in the QdabraWebService directory, and open it with Notepad. Find the <httpModules> tags and replace its contents with the following three lines:

    <clear />
    <add name="OutputCache"   type="System.Web.Caching.OutputCacheModule"/>
    <add name="WindowsAuthentication" type="System.Web.Security.WindowsAuthenticationModule"/>

This is to clear the entries from the root folder and add the essential modules needed for DBXL for the webservice to function.
