Mysql profile provider using standard database format RRS feed

  • Question

  • User546159910 posted

    I am using mysql, and would like to be able to use the profile provider in my asp.net web application project. I found a custom profile provider, but it stores data in xml format. I followed the tutorial from here: http://leedumond.com/blog/asp-net-profiles-in-web-application-projects/. Does anyone know how I can store data in standard database format? Has anyone tried sqltableprofileprovider with mysql?

    If not possible, can someone please suggest how I can go about adding extra fields for the user whose data is stored using membership provider?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    You create a custom profile provider when:

    • You need to store profile information in a data source, such as in a FoxPro database or in an Oracle database, that is not supported by the profile providers included with the .NET Framework.

    • You need to manage profile information using a database schema that is different from the database schema used by the providers included with the .NET Framework. A common example is that you want to integrate profile information with user data in an existing SQL Server database.

    about Implementing membership provider you can refer to  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/f1kyba5e.aspx
