    It's having trouble connecting to your databases.
    The problem is in your connection strings in your web.config

    How do you know what you tried is right?

    Post your connection strings in your web.config

    Don't forget to xxxxxx out your passwords.

    And what host provider are you using?

    You welcome

    But i don't think is about connection string 


       <add name="classifiedsConnection" connectionString="   Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=C:\Documents and Settings\Luigi Corrias\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\WebSites\Classifieds\App_Data\CLASSIFIEDSDB.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"  />

    Like I said it's wrong.

    What you have, as is above, when you first run the kit works fine on your local computer,
    and it needs to stay as you already have it for your local computer.

    I have a online web.config that is obviosly only for online use.
    In your online version you conection strings should look something like this.

        <add name="classifiedsConnection" connectionString="Data Source=whsql-vxxxxxxxxxxsecureserver.net;
          Initial Catalog=xxxxxxxxxx;
          User ID=user;
          Password='Pass';" />

        <remove name="LocalSqlServer"/>

        <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source=whsql-xxxxxxxxxxxx.secureserver.net;
          Initial Catalog=xxxxxxxxxxxx;
          User ID=user;
          Password='pass';" />


    There are two databases, the first string points to your classifieds database.
    And the second points to the members database.

    Keep in mind that the settings I have shown you above are for godaddy.
    Your's is probably close, but not exact.

    You will need to contact your host provider, whoever that may be, to find out exactly what it should be.

    If it is godaddy, I recently did a walk through with someone else, it may help you.


    Good Luck

    It has to be one or the other.

    So what I did is changed it to the online connection string version, save it,
    uploaded it, made sure it works right, undid the changes I just made, and saved it again.

    This way my local works, and online works.

    When you get it right, I highly recommend making a backup of everything.

    I already gave you a sample working with godaddy.

    And those .mdf files are your local databases.
    You have to create new databases online in your host provider's control panel.
    I recommend using MSSQL databases.

    And then you use scripts, as mentioned earlier, to fill the database.

    If this is just a problem connecting on your local computer, you do nothing.

    All you need is the .net framework installed,
    and run your kit in Visual Web Developer or Visual Studio.

    If you are did that, then I don't know.

    I have seen other post before in this forum where they were trying to test it on a local intranet network.
    I guess it can be a pain.

    No idea how to fix that though.

    Good Luck
