In the Existing Configuration step in the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard, you specify which aspect of your existing configuration you want to configure.
The options are:
Reconfigure system – Choose this option to edit your AppDNA server configuration – for example, to reconfigure the web site to use a different port or to enter a new password for the user account that the AppDNA web site uses to connect to the database. When you click Next, the Edit Configuration step opens.
Add database – Choose this option to create a new AppDNA database and a site that you can use to connect to it within AppDNA. When you click Next, the Database Creation step opens.
Having multiple databases is useful if you want to test your web applications separately from your desktop applications, for example. Using multiple databases is also useful for system integrators who need to test several customers’ application portfolios at the same time. See Databases for more information.
Add existing database – Choose this option to add an existing AppDNA database to your AppDNA installation. For example, you can use this option to add an old database that is located on a different SQL Server machine to your AppDNA web site. The wizard will automatically upgrade the database if necessary and create a site that you can use to connect to the database within AppDNA. When you click Next, the Add Existing Database step opens.
To open the Existing Configuration step
