I don't know if it's the "best" idea, but check your connectionstring to make sure you're using the right one. Also make sure your database is setup properly to accept your connectionstring credentials. I'm just giving general advice because, well, i have
no idea what your code/connectionstring/setup looks like.

Thanks for your post!
First, please check whether remote connections has already been enabled in the Sql Server, for more information, please refer to
Secondly, please check whether the connectionstring is correct in the web.config. For more information, please refer to
It may like this:
Data Source=188.8.131.52,1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;
Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;
