aspx file

    string strUserName = User.Identity.Name;
    MembershipUser currentUser = Membership.GetUser(strUserName);

Default Membership Provider could not be found.
The exception that is thrown when a configuration system error has occurred.

The web.config file is exactly what I used when the app was created in asp.net 4.5.
I know that the Membership object uses the SQL membership database.

What should I change?

Thanks,

web.config:

    <remove name="MemberShipSQLConnectionString"/>
    <add name="MemberShipSQLConnectionString"

This fixed it:
Changed this:

 <membership defaultProvider="DefaultMembershipProvider">
     
      <providers>
       
        <add name="SQLProvider" connectionStringName="MemberShipSQLConnectionString"
             enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
             enablePasswordReset="true"
             requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
             applicationName="StockPro"
             requiresUniqueEmail="true"
             passwordFormat="Hashed"
             maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5"
             passwordAttemptWindow="10"
             minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0"
             minRequiredPasswordLength="8"
             type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"/>
      </providers>
 
    </membership>



To this:

   <membership defaultProvider="SQLProvider">

      <providers>
       
        <add name="SQLProvider"
             connectionStringName="MemberShipSQLConnectionString"
             enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
             enablePasswordReset="true"
             requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
             applicationName="StockPro"
             requiresUniqueEmail="true"
             passwordFormat="Hashed"
             maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5"
             passwordAttemptWindow="10"
             minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0"
             minRequiredPasswordLength="8"
             type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"/>
      </providers>
