I have started making a website for my business but I have run into problems. This is my first attempt at coding .asp and am using MS VWD 2005 Express. I have a template I am using am have not changed anything on the back end. I have a windows host setup to handle my website, but for some reason I am getting the following error. Can anyone help me out with this? Again, I am completely new to .asp and most likely I did something wrong or didn't set something up I was suppose to. When I test it locally on my machine, it runs fine, but not when I upload it to my webserver. Here is the error:
Server Error in '/' Application.
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
SQLExpress database file auto-creation error:
1. The connection string specifies a local Sql Server Express instance using a database location within the applications App_Data directory. The provider attempted to automatically create the application services database because the provider determined that the database does not exist. The following configuration requirements are necessary to successfully check for existence of the application services database and automatically create the application services database:
2. If the applications App_Data directory does not already exist, the web server account must have read and write access to the applications directory. This is necessary because the web server account will automatically create the App_Data directory if it does not already exist.
If the applications App_Data directory already exists, the web server account only requires read and write access to the applications App_Data directory. This is necessary because the web server account will attempt to verify that the Sql Server Express database already exists within the applications App_Data directory. Revoking read access on the App_Data directory from the web server account will prevent the provider from correctly determining if the Sql Server Express database already exists. This will cause an error when the provider attempts to create a duplicate of an already existing database. Write access is required because the web server accounts credentials are used when creating the new database.
3. Sql Server Express must be installed on the machine.
4. The process identity for the web server account must have a local user profile. See the readme document for details on how to create a local user profile for both machine and domain accounts.

Mrs TimJ -
I will send you the code. The code is straight from Microsoft's personal web site starter kit that comes packaged with MS Visual Web Developer 2005 Express. When I run debug it runs fine on my local machine, but when it is uploaded I get the error.
The entire site zipped is 6.5mb. I will send it out.
Thanks for your help!
