Did you install the database and set the connection string in the dashboard config?

On the machine where you're running the dashboard, do you have permission to write to the event log?

Got it to work. Once I started the database and corrected the config file, the dashboard started to work.

Would be helpful if the Installation section in the users guide had a bit more detail.

Thanks.

huntantr: Are you using Presto? If so, do you like it? If not, what would make it better and worth using?
