Microsoft SQL Server (Express)

Learn how to send and receive SMS messages using a Microsoft SQL Server (Express) database with Diafaan SMS Server. Let Diafaan SMS Server create the database tables or create the database tables manually with an SQL script.

 

Microsoft SQL Server

Microsoft SQL Server is Microsoft's high performance SQL Server relational database management system. Drivers to access the database are built-in in Microsoft Windows so it is not necessary to install any additional drivers to use the database.

 

Microsoft SQL Server Express

Microsoft SQL Server Express is a freely-downloadable and distributable version of Microsoft's SQL Server relational database management system. For all intent and purposes it is compatible with the regular version of Microsoft SQL Server and uses the same drivers. The only practical difference is that \SQLEXPRESS should be added to the data source (server) name in the connection string.

 

Create the SMSServer database

You can use the setup wizard to create the database tables and fields for the MessageOut, MessageIn and MessageLog tables.
