Creating a new Microsoft SQL Database

GFI WebMonitor supports both Microsoft® SQL Server Express and Microsoft® SQL Server databases.


There is no need to create a blank database in SQL first. Just add a unique name on the Database Name field and GFI WebMonitor creates a new database on the background.

To create a new database:

  1. In GFI WebMonitor, go to Settings > Core Settings > Database.
  2. From Database Type, select SQL Server.
  3. In the SQL Server field, type the SQL Server instance name.
  4. In the Authentication area, select one of the following:
Option Description
Windows Authentication Select this option to use Windows® credentials when connecting to your SQL Server®.
SQL Server Authentication If your SQL Server® has been installed in SQL Server Authentication Mode, select this option and provide Username and Password.
  1. In the Database Name field, type the name of the database you want to create in SQL Server®.
