How can I change the default database connection for membership?

I have set up a website with membership login which works fine locally, though when hosted, the database has changed location and name. How can I change settings so the login control and the create user control will reference this new database configuration instead of looking for old database. The database itself is exactly the same; it has been created from the .BAK file from old DB.

Cheers.

In the web.config of your website search for the tag like

<connectionStrings>
  <add name="ADConnectionString"
   connectionString="server=MyServer,database=mydatabase,integrated security=true;" />
</connectionStrings>

In this change the name of server only as you said that database name & other settings are same. Then try

Not quite what I need I think... The connection string you show there is not used by the login or create user controls. These controls set their own connections to a database that they create. I have other controls that access the same database via the connection string in the web.config. This I have updated and the controls connect fine, but the login still creates error as below

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

I think it must be because the control is still looking for the original database. I need to change the provider within configuration manager??

The connection string that currently works in web.config is as below;

Server=mssql001.web24.net.au;Database=MWFDB;Uid=finnatic;Pwd=scout7;

so I need the login control and create new user control to reference this database connection.

Ideas??
