i don't know how to use a Encrypted ConnectionString with RoleManager in ASP.NET This is code in Web.config. 

<add name="strConnectionString" connectionString="eF8w9r2UJOsk0Ps3pxmV7/Fy/xPR2hN2S7BrC1iOYNnAUaI8AqkSm5bw7r+ta4sePWSV9t/3Spnpz6wsFpvMmcppNpqM5Zk7iiDqWVgIV4k="/>
<roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="CustomizedRoleProvider">

And in project I create a library to read web config

private readonly string SQLConnectionString =

if I change my ConnectionString like this, it's working: 

<add name="strConnectionString" connectionString="server=My-PCMSSQL2008; database=MyDB; uid=sa; pwd=passw0rd;"/>

Configuration :: How Does IIS 7 Gets The Connection String

Jun 17, 2010

I have created a ASP.NET 4 application in VS 2010 using Silverlight and RIA Services.

After finishing the first release on my development pc, I'm starting some deployment testing in a server in my local network.

After sucessfully published the web application using the Visual Studio FTP publishing option, I notice two strange things:

1 - On the IIS properties of the website I have uploaded my files to, you can see now a connection string, named as LocalSqlServer that points to the aspnetdb.mdf database file. I had a look in the web.config file and I could not find this connection strind defined there. So, where is it located? Where did IIs got it from?

2 - As the aspnetdb.mdf file is not deployed withtin the web application and I a musing SQL express in my testing server, where can I drop the mdf and ldf files so they can be attached when the applicaiton runs? I know I can perform an attach operation using management studio,but I'm wandering where is the DataDirectory folder ASP.NET looks for to attach it at runtime?

Configuration :: Is Possible To Have More Then One Connection String In The Web.config

Oct 19, 2010

I have been preparing for a conversion of an old application to an ASP.NET webapplication at beginning of the year. Generally, the development version of the webapp will also be the webapp that goes into production. We here make "clones" of the database server, assign new name, etc, which is then used for development, training, and so on without any threat of changing data on the real db (sql server 2005). I know it is possible to have more then one connection string in the web.config. My question centers around if there is a simple method for allow multiple connection strings and pick the one that is to be used for dev, production, training, and so on? I originally thought about constructing some type of admin form that the connection string can be selected from.

Configuration :: Connection String Encryption?

Nov 3, 2010

I was reading about how it is a good idea to encrypt the connection strings for security purposes. I came up with a solution that I think may be somewhat elegant, but there may be big flaws in my thinking. I am overworked and tired :)

Basically I have a setting in the web config EncryptConnectionString. In the Global.asax. Application_Start I am checking this in the config. If it is true, I am encrypting the connection strings. If it is false, I am decrypting the connection string.

Question #1 Is there a better way?

Configuration :: Cannot Get The Connection String Correct?

Aug 15, 2010

I finished my first asp mvc project and want to post it to a iis7/sql2008 server.I published the site just fine and migrated the sqlexpress database to sql2008 with no problems.However, when I run the program it still connects tp sqlexpress and opens a user instance.For the life of me I cannot get the connection string correct:

The current sring is:

<add name="AlertEntities" connectionString="metadata=res://*/Models.Alert.csdl|res://*/Models.Alert.ssdl|res://*/Models.Alert.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string="Data Source=.SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|Alert.mdf;Integrated
Security=True;User Instance=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True"" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />

How do I change this to make it see the sql2008 database?

Configuration :: Multiple SQL Instance In Connection String?

Dec 9, 2010

I have 3 Databases that I am pulling data from for my web site. 2 of the databases are in the same SQL instance, however the 3rd one is in a different SQL instance. Both of the SQL instances are installed on the same server, one of them is a Named instance and the other is installed under the default instance. So my connection strings look something like this:

<add name="ABCConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=BobDataDB;Initial Catalog=Bob;User ID=*******;Password=*********;" ProviderName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<add name="BCDConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=BobDataDB;Initial Catalog=Sue;User ID=*******;Password=*********;" ProviderName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<add name="EFGConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=Bob;Initial Catalog=Sue;User ID=*******;Password=*********;" ProviderName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

I'm in the process of moving this application from the Development Server to the Production Server when I noticed this issue. Previously the ABC and BCD connectionStrings where pointing to a different server and instance. So my question is how do I get this wo work with the server names being the same but the instances being different?

Configuration :: Variables In SqlDataSource Connection String?

Aug 13, 2010

Some databases that my application has to access have their name according to the current year because the ERP we work with creates a new database every year, so, now it's working with the 2010db database. There are two options (as far as I know) for the ConnectionString property of a SqlDataSource: 1) hard-code it or 2) pick it up from the web.config file.

I don't want to change manually the connection string every year, so, how can I solve this? I would need to take the value of Now.Year either in the hard-coded ConnectionString or for the Web.Config ConnectionString, but I don't know how to do that.

Configuration :: Set Membership Connection String At Run Time?

Mar 22, 2010

This may be more of a general ASP.NET question although I'm not sure. My project is MVC 1.0 so I thought I'd post here. I've searched but found nothing specifically applicable.

I'm using the default membership/authentication functionality as provided by the MVC template. The requirement is that I allow the user to set the connection properties individually in the <appSettings> section of Web.config rather than as a single value in the <connectionStrings> section. I can easily enough retrieve the data and turn it into a connection string, but I can see no way to make use of it in code.

Configuration :: SQL Server 2008 - Can't Get Connection String Right After Many Attempts

Mar 8, 2011

I have a new server that I am attempting to deply my very first asp.net website on. I have installed SQL 2008 r2 and loaded my DB on it. I am able to access the server/DB through Visual Stuidio. At least I know i can call it from the webserver to my local PC.

For some reason I just cant get my we.config's connection strong right. It might even be the <provider> info that I have wrong. I am just too inexperienced to know for sure. My Web.Config is very short so I will post all of it here.

-- Code is posted at the end --

How do I modify my local project to use my webservers DB instead of the standard SQL Express DB? The only connection string

Machine.Config that points to the sqlexpress database. Again I lack the experience to know how to do this. I am using Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 r2 on my local pc.
