SQL Timeout

Errors and Error Messages
Q: I receive the following error after logging into EP, and a long wait for the screen to change:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.

Please try to make the following modifications in your Web.Config file (it's in the EP root folder - using Notepad, only).

----before the modification----

<sessionPageState historySize="99" />
    <sessionState mode="SQLServer" sqlConnectionString="server=yourserver;Trusted_Connection=false;uid=youruser;pwd=yourpass;enlist=false;" />

----after the modification----


<sessionPageState historySize="20" />
    <sessionState mode="SQLServer" sqlConnectionString="server=yourserver;Trusted_Connection=false;uid=youruser;pwd=yourpass;enlist=false;" timeout="600" />

where yourserver - SQL server name, youruser - SQL server user name, yourpass - SQL server user password.
