ASP.NET ensure website is using a particular configuration string when published to server

Last Modified: 2012-07-11

As the title suggests, I am using a different database during development. It's easy enough to ensure that I am using the development database during development because I can do a simple debug.assert to ensure I am using the correct connection string.

However, I can't quite think how I would ensure that when the site is being published, or on the server, that a check is made to ensure the production version is using the production database.

Can anyone provide info on that?

Thanks, Aiden
