WAPIC (Coelacanth) must be setup to connect to specific databases, without these connection strings the Coelacanth.ServiceHost will fail to communicate with the database. When doing an installation via the MSI the connection strings are setup automatically however if you do a manual installation you will need to specify the proper settings for each string.

  1. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\COELACANTH\ folder.
  2. Edit the Coelacanth.ServiceHost.exe.config file with notepad.
  3. Verify the are valid for the 3 connections for the Control database and Chapi Logging database. If your computer name was MyServer with a SQL Instance of Cyrious your connection strings would resemble this example.
  4. Change the Password=9999999 to the valid password for the two SQL user accounts for chapi and cyrious.
