Should I try to put all of the files within the autogenerated personal.mdf into the SQL2005 folders on my database?
if you're using SQL Server 2005 you can attach your .mdf & .ldf file within SQL Server Managament Studio. Just right click on the Databases node and choose Attach...
You also need to let SQL Server know which database you're going to use for the membership database. There's a great tutorial that I used in the past available:
Configuring ASP.NET 2.0 Application Services to use SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 2005
In the tutorial it also states that you must update your web.config. This needs to be done every time you're creating a new web application. If you don't want to do this, like me, you can also change it in the machine.config file (make a backup of that file
first just to be sure!).
