I can't work out the connection string for this DB

Hi. So I have this horrible SQLite database that I connect to fine using this monstrosity of a connection string...

What should I use instead for a relative pathway to my database that I can use to publish to a server please??

<add name="SQLiteEntities" connectionString="metadata=res://*/Model1.csdl|res://*/Model1.ssdl|res://*/Model1.msl;provider=System.Data.SQLite;provider connection string="data source=C:\Users\Rob\Dropbox\Rob Businesses\Bribie Indoor soccer\Bribie website\WaqarOctober2014\Soccer\Soccer\App_Data\1.080000.sql"" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" /></connectionStrings>

What programming language are you using?  I suggest you click on "Request Attention" to get that added to your Topic Areas so you will have a better chance of someone knowing what you need.  Also remove 'MySQL' because that has nothing to do with your question.

Thanks Dave - I'm using Visual Basic but the connection string should be the same across Visual Studio and more. There was no option for SQLite and I wanted to make it obvious that it was a database question, hence the MySQL inclusion.

I not sure about the connection string being the same.  Here http://system.data.sqlite.org/index.html/doc/trunk/www/index.wiki is info about the ADO.NET interface for SQLite.
