ASP.NET Provider login problem

ASP.NET Provider login problem

Postby monkamonka » Mon 05 Jun 2006 19:15

I have the mysqldirect 3.50 and an series of pages. I have setup the proper users and roles to allow myself to view pages. I have also configured the machine.config with the appropriate connection string. I am using Visual Studio 2005 and when I use the development host to test the site, it works perfectly. However when I publish the site to the same computer, which is also the server, it no longer works from the local computer or a remote computer on the network.

It prompts me for the username and password like normal, however, when I input this, it says "ypur login attempt was not successful. Please try again."

I cannot figure out what is going wrong.

Please check your connection settings, machine.config settings, whether needed provider is attached; try to create a user.

My guess is that your applicationname on the local server is different from the actual applicationname of your ASP.NET project.
If you look at the accesslist tables you will see that it's not only the Username/PW combination that will grant access, but also the applicationname is checked.
So if you change the applicationname of that virtual directory in your local IIS settings then I am pretty sure that it's gonna work.

Good luck
