I have combined the two mdf file databases in the starter kit into one file, and attached it to my hosted SQL Server 2005 database. It runs fine locally, and when I change the connection string to only the remote SQL server database, the site again works
fine when run locally using the remote DB. However, when I upload my files to the server, and run the website on the hosted server, I receive the following error.
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces,
error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)
I receive this error when I try to log in to the site, otherwise I can view it just fine. Any ideas? Is there a unique connection string that we are supposed to use due to the attached mdf file? Thanks.
