    A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server

    .Net SqlClient Data Provider

    A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

     

    ITS MEAN YOUR DATABASE IS DOWN? OR CHANGED WITHOUT NOTIFICATION FIRST?

    Hi @nurmaabi, thanks for posting.

    This can be caused by a few different issues, as indicated in the error message. A common reason is if the database name is incorrect in the connection. You may want to double check all of your database connection information to ensure it is correct.

    If you are connecting to the database remotely, it also possible that the hosting plan expired. You may also want to check your account.
