Adding Connectionstring in web.config file

Hello, I want to add a certain line in the web.config file which would be the connectionstring.  I want to add the following line:

<add key="ConnectionString" value="server=test,4155;database=testdb;uid=admin;pwd=Password"/>

Where exactly would I add this <add key> line in my web.config file?

Generally for connection strings you would add them to the <connectionStrings /> section rather than <appSettings />

you have to add the key in appsettings, however you can use the connectionstring key

      <appSettings>
     <add key="ConnectionString" value="server=test,4155;database=testdb;uid=admin;pwd=Password"/>
 </appSettings>
 <connectionStrings>
            <add name="ConnectionString" connectionString="server=test,4155;database=testdb;uid=admin;pwd=Password"/>
      </connectionStrings>
