The user you're using in SQL doesn't have permissions to do whatever you're doing. Since you're moving to production perhaps you're still using the development user?

I'm using Forms authentication.
My default page is called Default.aspx. All there is is in Default.aspx is a login control. If login is successful, the user gets redirected to a page called MainPage.aspx.
MainPage.aspx doesn't make any calls to the SQL server. It just has a bunch of Menus with links to other pages.
So, when I browse to my website, I get the Default.aspx page, I enter a username and password and as soon as I hit enter I get the error.

In order for the user to login they needs access to SQL Server that is the point of Forms authentication.

Can you guys explain?
I'm using the self-standing asp.net membership... the membership information is stored in a database file in App_Code by default.
I've configured my users and roles using the Asp.net configuration tool through Visual Studio.

Well, I configured my application to use the SQL server instead of the built-in db file. Although you guys didn't give me a clear answer, you got me thinking in the right direction.
