Note: Before editing or deleting any files, back up the files.

Notes:
We recommend making changes at a time when FAWeb users are not logged in. If you make changes while users are logged in to FAWeb, each user's session is ended and all work since the last save will be lost.

To use the Sample database edit the WEB.CONFIG file as follows: 

  1. On the Faculty Access for the Web server, open Windows Explorer or My Computer and locate the directory where Faculty Access for the Web is installed.

    Note: The default directory is C:\Program Files\Blackbaud\FAWeb7
     
  2. Right-click the file Web.config and select Properties.
     
  3. Unmark the Read-only checkbox and click OK.
     
  4. Open the Web.Config file with Notepad.
     
  5. On the line that reads add key="AFNINI" value, change the number in quotes to 50. This line is under the <'appSettings'> section.
     
  6. Save and close the file.
     
  7. Log into the Education Edge sample database on the Web Server.
     
  8. Log into FAWeb as normal using a username/password from the sample database. 

To use a different network database edit the WEB.CONFIG file as follows:

  2. Right-click the file Web.config and select Properties.
     
  3. Unmark the Read-only checkbox and click OK.
     
  4. Open the Web.Config file with Notepad.
     
  5. On the line that reads add key="AFNINI" value, change the number in quotes to 2. This line is under the <'appSettings'> section.
     
  6. Save and close the file.
     
  7. Log into the Education Edge database on the Web Server.
