When setting up a server, we installed SQL Server 2008. Now it turns out we don't need it, and we want to use the free Express version instead. Ideally without much interruption to things using the database. Is it possible to install Express side by side with the full version without disrupting things?
The tables are small and the load is relatively light. As in, there are maybe 30 rows in each table, and a few aspx pages that use them to keep track of state. We're not doing anything other than simple queries on a few tables in our current setup. I could get by using SQLite, if I wanted to rewrite some ASP.NET pages to use it.
