Null exception on commerce initialization


I am currently building a 7.5 commerce site using parts of the sample site code. I started receiving the error below but unsure what I have done to cause it. Would anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve it? 

ERROR EPiServer.Framework.Initialization.InitializationEngine: Initialize action failed for Initialize on class Mediachase.Commerce.Initialization.CommerceInitialization, Mediachase.Commerce, Version=7.5.394.2, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=6e58b501b34abce3

Sorry for the late replying. Hoping you already solved this.

From what I saw, there is a problem with the transaction - might be the database is timed out or unreachable at initialization.

Please check if database is up and running. And I also recommend to upgrade your site to latest version - via nuget packages. The latest packages solve bugs and add new functionalities without additional licenses or breaking changes.
