SambaPOS Database Configuration


#164

What error are you getting?


#165

nothing happen when i press “start client now”


#166

Message server has nothing to do with SQL server. Just restart Sambapos after entering the connection string.


#167

now i’m getting this
message server not connected


#168

You don’t need message server unless you plan to use a kitchen screen or want to update entity screens on multiple tills.

If you do then you need to search forum for message server setup. Message server is NOT part of your database.


#169

can i ask you? here is my question before this.
im sorry for asking much…


#170

SQL server when clients are connected via connect string will allow you to do that yes.


#171

i’m not using kitchen screen… i’m trying to use the same sambapos data on 2 windows user accounts. is it possible? my last choice would be buying windows tablet.


#172

so i just have to paste the same data connection string on both sambapos in different windows user account? im using one pc


#173

It won’t be possible with android tablet and RDP. If that’s what you mean.


#174

for right now, my android can log in on user account A on pc, and i can use user account B on the same PC at the same time. Now Im trying to make sambapos can send data through user account A to B. Is it possible?


#175

No that won’t work you have a few options already given to you.


#176

Okay thank you.

Now i have to learn how to use Data connection string.
why it is not showing connected even i already type data connection string?


#177

That is for message server. Samba does not show an indicator for database connection. If you enter the string and restart Sambapos and it loads then it worked.


#178

thank you sir.

I should try this between 2 pc first right before i buy windows tablet?
Is it same(normal installation as in PC) to install sambapos on windows tablet?


#179

Sirrr!!! It work perfectly on android!!!
thank you sir!!!


#180

I came up to this point on server although the message Server port is 8383 as you mentioned in installation
now from there what to do with the client computer
please help me


#181

As kendash said message server is not the same thing as your database so ignore it for now.
Connection string is what you need to sort out. Thats what will make your samaba installs all look at the same data.

@ JTRTech
Thank you
Please ignore the other post as am asking in two posts lets use this post
What to do with the Client computer to connect


#183

Thats what happens when you ask the same question multiple times :stuck_out_tongue:

This is all well documented on the forum, you connection string will need to point to the sql database on the server machine.
Pretty much you change the localhost in the string to the name of the server as the client machine does not have a database on itself.
Try searching the forum, many many posts about setting up sql and multiple terminals.
