I am getting the following error initializing providers (VS 2005) and can't figure out where the problem is.  Where can I find more detailed information on the problem?  I purposely made the user id invalid on the connection string, and the error message is the same, so I dont think it is actually opening the database.

The aspnet_regsql tool - that's for Microsoft's SQL only, or will it work with MySql as well?

You're correct, it will not work with MySql, what I meant was how did you install your DB schema?  You could use aspnet_regsql and install Membership and Role db schema to SQL Express edition and use that schema as a reference.

Here is a good example of membership and role providers for MySql:

For mysql you don't need aspnet_regsql already, because it supports self schema.
In the code autogenerateschema="true" line will do that for you. But my problem is; it works in my local but when i upload to server it gives ;

The accepted solution is wrong.

You can use MySQL.

You need check your connection string it's correct and working. Also check the the MySQL user you are using in that string has the sufficient permissions to add tables and etc.
