I copied my project to my hosting server space and received the following message while trying to run it:
The database '[path\MDF file] cannot be opened because it is version 655. This server supports version 611 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported.
Any suggestions? I imagine it has to do with me using SQL Server Express 2008 and the hosting provider isn't. If so, where do I go from here? Does SSE have scripts available for re-creating the tables, and in another version?

I received word from my hosting provider that indeed it's a SQL Server 2005 and 2008 compatibility issue. They suggested that I could upgrade to 2008, which will cost more. So, I have a couple a questions that I'll need to have answered here:
1) Will there be any significant performance differences or disadvantages by using 05 instead of 08? The site will have relatively light usage.
2) When I (fatefully, as it now turns out) upgraded from 05 to 08, I had a terrible time with the process and even had to wipe my disk clean due to upgrading difficulties. From anyone who has had experience with upgrading (or downgrading, as the case may
be) between SQL Server versions, what are the most important considerations for accomplishing this task, so that I don't run into compatibility issues again?

I uninstalled 08 and installed 05. When I try to create the database by using ASP.Net Configuration, the tool's web page repeatedly returns "An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again." In what other way can I create the standard aspnetdb.mdf

Closing this because it has evolved into a separate issue.

WARNING!!! Be sure to back up your ASPNETDB.MDF data before doing this.
I had the same problem and solved it by deleting the ASPNETDB.MDF and aspnetdb_log.ldf files from the App_Data folder. They get recreated the next time you run your application.
I was doing this on a proof of concept website and did not have any valuable information saved in the ASPNETDB.MDF database.

Sorry deletion was not the answer, it does not work, rather I donot have such files on my system.
