You need to change the connection string in SambaPOS to connect to the other instance.
However I do not recommend you set it up like this, because running 2 instances of SQL Server is just wasting system resources.
Just uninstall the 2nd instance of SQL Server, and then add your SambaPOS5 database to your original instance. You can have any number of databases on the same instance of SQL Server 2014. The fact one is v4 and the other v5 is irrelevant, because SQL Server will just the database engine, it only matters for SambaPOS that you each version of the software to the correct database.
Thanks Markjw and JTRTech for the quick response, pls how do i create a different database for the Sambapos V5 without affecting my version for V4 database since i want both to run a different database serving two different Restaurant. Thank you
You dont have a database part of the string? So not sure whats going on there.
There is a button which gives you a field list for the sections of the string if you feel more comfortable editing with that.
You don’t need multiple instances just multiple databases.
I have at least a dozen databases for different versions and clients so can just change database name in connection string to go between setups.
These all run under a single instance.
While you could run multiple instances there isn’t a need to.
