I'm trying to put an app on the web and I'm having some trouble with the login control.  Everytime I try to log in I get this error:  Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again.

I've gone through this entire site:  http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/27682/Your-Login-Attempt-was-not-Successful-Please-Try

and i applied all the tricks and it still isnt working.  I think I may have boffed something up in the web.config.  Here is my web.config:  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
