The transaction log for database 'Sharepoint_Config' is full

The above problem i faced serveral times earlier and that lead me to post it here for someone who is looking for solution.

Solution : 

1. On your SQL Server -> open the SQL Server Management Studio.

2. Connect to the local SQL Server

3. Right click SharePoint_Config -> Properties -> Options.  Change Recover Model from Full to Simple.

4.  Click OK.

5. Right click SharePoint_Config, go to Tasks -> Shrink -> Shrink Files.  Select a File type of Log, then Shrink

This should solve the problem.

Thank you !!!
