I will start out by saying I am "totally new" to SQL databases and I need some assistance with setting up ".config" files and connecting to a database via a sub-domain address. Lets start by saying that I have been able to set up a subdomain called: "acen.mydomain.com" I have created a subfolder in my web space called "acen" where I have uploaded the folders, aspx files, and .config files that work with the SQL database, lets call "database1." I think I have successfully uploaded the "database1" database to the Winhost SQL Server and I have been able to successfully BACKUP and RESTORE database1. So, although I am not 100% sure, I think I am getting close for this being true. Here is a snippet of code from my "web.config" file which is located in the subfolder called "acen." ############# <appSettings> <add key="sql_connectionstring" value="Server=.\SQLServer;Data Source=tcp:s04.Winhost.com; Initial Catalog=database1; User ID=database1_user; Password=**********; Integrated Security=False" /> <add key="sql_database_name" value="database1" /> <add key="acen_version_number" value="2.20.00" /> <add key="acen_version" value="full" /> </appSettings> <system.web> <globalization culture="en-GB" uiCulture="en-GB"/> <customErrors mode="Off"/> <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms name="acen2Cookie" loginUrl="/ACEN/login.aspx" protection="All" slidingExpiration="false" enableCrossAppRedirects="false" path="/"/> </authentication> <pages buffer="true" enableSessionState="true" enableViewState="true" enableViewStateMac="true" autoEventWireup="true" validateRequest="true"/> <machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="SHA1"/> ############## Most of this was already included in the config file as an example, which was included as part of the database web application. So, once the correct changes have been made to the web.config file, here is what I would like to do. When users type http://acen.mydomain.com" in their browsers, I would like for the "login.aspx" page in the ACEN subfolder to connect to the "database1" SQL database on the Winhost servers and display the login page so users can sign in. Hopefully, i have explained this the best I can. If this is unclear, please let me know and I will do my best to clarify anything. Thanks in Advance.
