I am trying to setup sql management studio and i cant connect to a server name. Been trying to find the sql config manager but i cant find it anywhere on my computer, and i have searched on youtube and on google and tried many solutions but i simply cant solve it.
Even checked my firewall if it blocks the ports etc. Im not very good at this so please how do i solve this? Is it possible to download the configuration manager somewhere? I have been trying to look for it but i cant find any download link.
Here is what it says:
Connect to Server 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) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2)
