Port SQL Express database to your host's SQL Server - tutorials description

Take the tutorial   Back to the tutorials list

One of the biggest frustrations for web developers who have created a membership based website using the asp.net controls, is figuring out how to port the SQL Express membership database with all its tables and relationships to the SQL server of their web hosting company.

The process varies from host-to-host. Connection strings vary, and getting help is sporadic. This tutorial will be directed specifically to the step-by-step of setting up your site with our favored hosting company Arvixe although you could probably use the information with other hosting companies.

PLEASE NOTE:  We no longer recommend Arvixe as a web host

We have left this tutorial in place simply as a learning tool. We ourselves no longer use Arvixe.
