Hi Vahid.

I think I can help you with question 4 and 6:

4. To get the News, faq, etc functionality you have to download them seperately. It is done through the Console->System->packages. There is a video-guide here: . Maybe it wont work before you have fixed error 1(outbound https/soap connection).

6. By default Composite C1 do not use a dabase, but xml files! You can access the data with C# using this syntax:  See more here:

DataConnection connection = new DataConnection();
If you wante to migrate to a mssql instead of xml files, theres is video-guide here:

And the important thing with the datalayer, is that it doesn't matter if you use xml-files or mssql, the code is the same, you stil retrieve, update, create and delete stuff through the DataConnection-class.

1. Regarding the required internet-connection it has been discussed several times, maybe the best and most clarifying discussion is this one

5. Errors are logged and stored under ~/App_Data. They can be viewed as raw text-files, in the Server Log viewer inside the Console or live with the Log Viewer application. Read more about logging here
