Im having some trouble pointing my asp.net mvc4 web application to another location.

I created the models/controller based on entity framework code first method.

Real simple app just a couple model classes.  They connected wonderfully to sql express but now I want to move the database to a test sql server.

Im not sure how to change the connection.  There is no connection string in the web.config so I have no idea where its storing the connection.  I have a connection in server explorer to sql express and also to my staging sql server.  The other thing I dont like is th wacky name it gives the database in sql server.  Gets a little long for my taste.

Any help is appreciated.

Actually I just found a solution.  I needed to download the newer entity framework.

Will look into how to rename the db without freaking out the code first mechanisms in visual studio.
