C# - Encrypt The Connection Strings In Web.config?

Dec 20, 2010

I'm trying to encrypt the connection strings in my web.config. I'm following:


however when I get to the part with the command:

aspnet_regiis -pe "connectionStrings" -app "/MyApplication" -prov "MyProvider"

it keeps complaining:

"The configuration for the virtual path '/MyApplication' and site 'Default Web Site' cannot be opened

Failed to map the path '/myapplication'

I'm fairly sure I've followed the instructions correctly. I created the project named 'MyApplication' directly in the 'C:' root.

Perhaps I should be following a different set of instructions?

Web Config - Where Should Connection Strings Be Stored In A N-tier Application

Sep 29, 2010

I have an ASP.NET project which is pretty n-tier, by namespace, but I need to separate into three projects: Data Layer, Middle Tier and Front End.

I am doing this because...

A) It seems the right thing to do, and

B) I am having all sorts of problems running unit tests for ASP.NET hosted assemblies.

Anyway, my question is, where do you keep your config info?

Right now, for example, my middle tier classes (which uses Linq to SQL) automatically pull their connection string information from the web.config when instantiating a new data context.

If my data layer is in another project can/should it be using the web.config for configuration info?

If so, how will a unit test, (typically in a separate assembly) provide soch configuration info?

C# - Switch Between 2 Connection Strings In Web.Config (Activate One For DBML)

May 21, 2010

I have two connection strings (both in Web.Config: CS_Local and CS_Production) for my DBML (Linq to SQL). In my Global.Asax/Application_Start I run some production preparation methods if the request is non-local (!HttpContext.Current.Request.IsLocal). Within that part, I'd also like to change the current connection string used by my DBML from the standard CS_Local to CS_Production.

Jun 1, 2010

I have looked for ideas on this and read several posts but none of them seems to be because the problem is that web.com (my host) doesnt allow us to update web.config on their server programmatically. I can use example codes and encrypt them on my local pc but heres the error i get when I run them on the live site:

An error occurred loading a configuration file: Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed. (machine.config)

ADO.NET :: LINQ And Web Application Connection Strings

Dec 25, 2010

i want define connectionSreing in the web.config and then use it for DataContext ConnectionString. i do that : 1. i creat a class in App_Code :(MisaghDB is my database)

partial class MisaghDataContext
partial void OnCreated()
this.Connection.ConnectionString =
// or
public partial class MisaghDataContext
public MisaghDataContext() : base (ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MisaghDBConnectionString"].ConnectionString)

2. Add the connection string to my web.config file:

<add name="MisaghDBConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=NAZLIN-HP;Initial Catalog=MisaghDB;Integrated Security=True"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

3. Right click on the DBML file design surface and chose properties. Select "none" for the Connection property.now should i change DBML file designer.cs (Misagh.designer.cs) ? The code should I delete in this file(DBMLfile designer.cs)? this is a part of my DBMLfile designer.cs :

public partial class MisaghDataContext : System.Data.Linq.DataContext
private static System.Data.Linq.Mapping.MappingSource mappingSource = new AttributeMappingSource();
public NorthwindDataContext() :
base(global::WindowsFormsApplication2.Properties.Settings.Default.NorthwindConnectionString, mappingSource)
public NorthwindDataContext(string connection) :
base(connection, mappingSource)
public NorthwindDataContext(System.Data.IDbConnection connection) :
base(connection, mappingSource)
public NorthwindDataContext(string connection, System.Data.Linq.Mapping.MappingSource mappingSource) :
base(connection, mappingSource)
public NorthwindDataContext(System.Data.IDbConnection connection, System.Data.Linq.Mapping.MappingSource mappingSource) :
base(connection, mappingSource)
