Members only area setup to query existing database before allowing creation of account RRS feed

  • Question

  • I followed this walkthrough:

    Walkthrough: Creating a Web Site with Membership and User Login

    It was very helpful in creating the members login area.

    My next step is to link it to an existing database, so it will make sure the person who is trying to create an account is in that database. Is this easily done, or not possible? 

    I also need to know what I should do with the database. Should it be uploaded onto the webserver? It is currently kept in Microsoft Access, but I believe I need to put it into SQL? I apologize, I am not very knowledgeable about databases and how they work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
