I have a new ASP.Net 2.0 website I developed and am using the default ASPNETDB.MDF under the APP_DATA folder to store user name and passwords that I create using the Web Site Administration Tool.
I am trying to deploy this Web Site on a separate Windows 2003 server box and have copied the contents of my Web Project Folder into c:\Inetpub\wwwroot. So the APP_DATA is now a sub-folder of wwwroot.
When I run the Web Site in a browser it will not accept any logins that I had created on the development server, acts as if there are no user's setup. I have installed SQL Server Express on the production server but still no luck. Why?
