I've having trouble configuring WMS out of MapGuide Open Source. Here's what I've done so far:

  1. Installed MapGuide
  2. Downloaded MapGuide Maestro
  3. Created a "feature" in Maestro that connects to MSSQL2008
  4. Added the "feature" to a new layer
  5. Added the new layer to a new map
  6. Combined those three things into a "package", imported that into Site Administrator.

Thus, MapGuide has access to the data, and WMS in enabled. Yet, doing a GetCapabilities request returns a 404 out of my browser and a result but no information about the data from the MapGuide UI.

How do I "point" the WMS service to my MSSQL data?

I seem to have solved the problem, as GetCapabilities now reflects my data.

The only change that I made was to right click my Layer in MapGuide Maestro and click Properties. In the WMS tab, I entered some details for the title and selected the checkbox that was named something like Available or Enabled. That did the trick!
