I have loaded my strater kit on a Hosting system. However of course it did not work. I'm sure it has to do with my database (ASPnetdb.MDF) and the others.
I need to configure the Web.config file. I'm being hosted by Ihost. If someone could give me feedback. Also could I use this on an Access Database
Classified starter kit with MS Access

Why would u want to use Access DB? If its a limitation from the host then i would strongly recommend you finding another host provider (Most of us here use godaddy.)
First thing to do is disable customErrors from web.config to get detailed info on the error you are trying to fix. Next would be tackle one issue at a time...
starting with the db connection string which you would need to get from your hosting provider..

Thanks for your reply. I have set the web.config customerror mode to "off" But I'm not getting details.
<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

First, not to be rude or anything but please dont email me a private msg whenever you reply here...I check the forum regularly and I try to help whenever I can..
To answer your question. If you are still not getting anything then your hosting account is probably set to run in .NET 1.1 and not .NET 2.0..Check your hosting control panel and change it to 2.0

Sorry, new to the forums. Just getting use to the software.
My host is running ASP 2.0, I have DotNetNuke running on the system.
One thing, the database : Could there be a probel there?

try this link and see if it helps
Conversion to Access imho is totally contrary to the whole basis of the starter kit - you seem to have developed your site in SQLExpress on your local machine and the connection string is still pointing there
Read through the link you hosting company should be able to provide sql shared hosting

Your strings are pointing to your local computers settings, you need to get the format for connecting from your host provider.
Mine's with godaddy, and a correct format would look something like this:
<add name="classifiedsConnection" connectionString="Data Source=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx;
<add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx;
Talk to your host.

Thanks all. I will try these thing see if they help

Just as a note, this is SQL server not ACCESS....so you don't get confused,
Make sure your hosting company gives you 2 databases (1 will be used to the application, the other will be used to the membership)...
You can join the two but thats just more work..

I have a dotNetNuke database could it be used for one of the 2 database?
