I am attempting to create and test my first string connection to a sql server test database, without success.
I will provide here all the information to connect the database here, and will change the credentials later. Anyway, this is just a test database.
I created this test database on godaddy.com. I entered the name of the database and provided a password. The string they then recommend is:
.com; Initial Catalog=testtest12345; User ID=testtest12345; Password='your password';
My password is: Test1Test
I tried in the web.config, inside the <connectionstrings>, to add this line:
<add name="testfirststring" connectionString="Data Source=testtest12345.db.26
.com; Initial Catalog=testtest12345; User ID=testtest12345; Password=Test1Test;" providerName="System.Data.
Then, from visual studio, I dragged and droped a SqlDataSource, in the body of my default.aspx page, which generated the line:
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"></asp:SqlDa
Then, in design view, I right click and chose Configure data source. I choose my testfirststring connection which is available in the menu, and when i press next, i get the error message shown in the image below. I really do not know what I can do.
Anyone would know what I am doing wrong? Anyone is able to connect to my database?
Thanks! I am clueless here.
Error message from Visual Studio: "Database schema could not be retrieved from this connection..."
