Reading from web configuration file

Last Modified: 2015-06-18
I can read connection string from webconfig file  from visual studio from the below mentioned code
in login.aspx page

 Private constr As String
    Private rootWebConfig As System.Configuration.Configuration
    Private connString As System.Configuration.ConnectionStringSettings

rootWebConfig = System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration("/WEBUI")    where WEBUI is project folder where webconfig resides.

        connString = rootWebConfig.ConnectionStrings.ConnectionStrings("Sqlserver")
        constr = connString.ConnectionString

I created  web deploy package and imported into localhost IIS 7. import application worked fine. when I tried to browse the login.aspx from IIS published folder I get the following msg

Server Error in '/KHWEB' Application.  -  KHWEB  web application name in IIS7

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
