I copied down one starter kit (Personal website) from www.asp.net. Its running fine in Visual Studio 2005. Then I took web hosting with some web host and when i published my site. Its running with error saying to add custom error tag in either of the following
<!-- Web.Config Configuration File --><configuration> <system.web> <customErrors mode="Off"/> </system.web></configuration>
<configuration> <system.web> <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/> </system.web></configuration>
I tried both, but still no effect.
I asked my webhost about it, and he says that i need to buy MS SQL database in that hosting package (its separate from hosting charges), only then it will work. And other reason he told is that, in the web.config file
the datasource mentioned is ".\SQLExpress ". And for that he will have to move the website to another server which supports SQL 2k5.
Now I need to know that also, can i use the website by mentioning SQL 2000 also? if yes then how?
Also provide me solution/answer to above problem.
Thanks in advance,

The Personal Web Starter Kit can use SQL 2000, You can download the SQL script
here I believe that the script works both for 2005 and 2000.
Also if you don't want to pay for SQL Server there is an alternate, the Personal Starter kit for Access. You can read this
thread about it and decide if you want to go that route or not.
