Hello everybody,
I'm a new employee now and the mission of installing NowSMS, linking it to the server and Database was assigned to me as my first task without any help offered

so I really really need your help please, I read the guide and understood how to install the NowSMS, but I couldn't find anything that is related to linking it with a database, and what is the connection string I need to write in the sql ?

Thank you in advance :)}

Any database connection string is independent of NowSMS. It is whatever your database needs.

Think of it this way...

Could you write a script (PHP, ASP, or other web scripting language) that processed a web form where the user entered text into the form and your script used that text to interface to the database ?

When you define a 2-way command in NowSMS it essentially works the same way, it is like the text message is a web form being submitted to your script (2-way command).

A good starting point example in PHP can be found here:

It shows you how the data from the text message is passed to a PHP script. You would need to add logic to interface with your database.
