ASPNETDB and machine.config

Discussion in 'Databases' started by Herna, Aug 7, 2012.

  1. Why does my ASPNETDB database on the server keep on giving the following error (figure 1), after I have logged in, when in fact the machine.config at line 238 is as indicated in figure 2. Which machine.config does the ASPNETDB actually read? When I run the same application from my computer using the same database, it works perfectly.

    Server Error in '/' Application.
