Hi, I have totally customised the starter kit and everything works perfectly using local host. I am totally new to asp.net and I have no clue at all how to upload it to my web server. It won't let me log in to the site, I'm guessing I need a database for
users, but don't know how to make this.
Please could someone give me a step by step guide starting from uploading to web server up to it working on the web? I will be forever grateful for this

Yeah, I've done that bit. I'm getting loads of errors, don't know how to do the <conntectionStrings> bit for my web server to connect to my mssql database, and I don't know what I'm supposed to put in the database or how to do it.
I just have no clue how to create the database for users. Is there some tool I need such as the asp.net configuration tool that is on visual studio? Is there one similar to use for the internet?
Any help will be so much appriciated.
Thanks in advance

I published my site on my computer using the localhost before I published my site to a host computer.
You must check your host computer to see which sql server they are using sql2000, or sql2005.
There are serveral post on how to setup your database using sql2005.
I switched to sql2005, setup a new database and then use my localhost to test the new database.
After I loaded up my new database with pictures I ftped all the files to the host computer.
They copied all tables, stored procedure, etc to a new database and
then I edited the connection string to match the new database. They gave me an example of the string
