Tips On Setting up Sitecore Content Delivery Server

Setting up a Content Delivery Server the first time is not easy but there is help.
Firstly, download the Sitecore Scaling Guide and the SwitchMasterToWeb.Config
from this SDN Link

Once you have followed the above steps you may get the following error:

Exception: System.InvalidOperationException
Message: Could not find configuration node: databases/database[@id='master']

If you are running Sitecore 6.5 the fix is to open the SwitchMasterToWeb.Config and paste this at the bottom just inside the  </sitecore>
<!– extra setting to bypass analytics error –>
<setting name=“Analytics.DefaultDefinitionDatabase“ value=“web“ />
If you still get the error or are running 6.4 or lower then there may be references to master in the web.config that were added after the standard install.  One example is the news mover module.  The solution is to find all references to these (<database>master</database>) in your web.config and comment them out.
