    How do you know an error is occurring if you aren't receiving any kind of error messages? Are any errors occurring at all or is some specific functionality not working?

    Have you tried setting the roleManager element to enabled (the default value for it is false)? 

    <roleManager defaultProvider="DefaultRoleProvider" enabled="true">

    Well for starters you could add the following to your web.config:

    <configuration> <system.web> <customErrors mode="off"></customErrors> </system.web> </configuration>

    This should allow you to get a more detailed error message about what is wrong. See if that get's you started down the right path. It should at least provide more information about what might be wrong.

    Update - try this in your web.config:

    <connectionStrings> <remove name="LocalSqlServer" /> <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Server=mssql3322.dotnet-host.com;Database=aspnetdb3;Uid=SomeUserNAme;Password=SomePassword;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/> <add name="ConnectionString" connectionString="Server=mssql3322.dotnet-host.com;Database=aspnetdb3;Uid=SomeUserNAme;Password=SomePassword;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/> </connectionStrings>

    Update - That worked! Here is a short explanation why: By default the ASP membership classes use the connection string LocalSqlServer. The reason the code worked on your local machine is because the connection LocalSqlServer is defined in a machine level config file to point to the local sql database. When you published it the SqlDataSource/GridView worked because it was pulling the connection named ConnectionString that pointed to the correct server. However ASP membership was still trying to connect to the LocalSqlServer connection. The above config just ignores the machine level LocalSqlServer connection and defines it's own (and it leaves the ConnectionString one in place so that the GridView continues to function.
