Connection String Doesn't Update from Web Config File
I have an application that I developed in VB2002 and let Visual Web Dev 2005 convert it. However when I run the application I get an error message saying invalid login or password for the SQL Server I am trying to use (new server and username). I have updated it in the webconfig file however if I do a search for the old server name it is on every aspx file that I reference my connection string in the Web Form Designer Generated Code....
Why isn't it using the connection string I have in the webconfig file?

1) I've got a web.config whose sections related to the application be it for SMTP settings and other sections related to the application should be editable while deploying it in the target web server
2) I don't want to use 'Replace Config files' option
Is there an existing MSBuild task that can be used to accomplish this? Or do i have to roll-out a Window application and launch that as part of the task to get this done and put this in the one of the build phases be it "After Build"

Im having issues doing this. and when i remove the authentication from the swf/web.config it still doesnt seem to be applying to the child website at all. Whats the proper way to set a child website? Thanks!!
The lower most web.config overrides all previous settings. So if you remove the section from the /swf/web.config whatever settings you have in the web.config in the next higher level will have an effect on the content of the child folder.So instead of removing a section, try giving appropriate settings in the /swf/web.config....web.config, app.config Connection strings

I have a web application that comprises the following:
A web project (with a web.config file containing a connection string - but no data access code in the web project)
A data access project that uses LINQ-SQL classes to provide entities to the web project UI (this project has a settings file and an app.config - both of which have connection strings)
When I build and deploy, there is no settings file or app.config in the Bin directory with the data access .dll, but changing the connection string in the web.config file doesn't change the database accordingly - so ...Why we use Web.Config File for connection string wether we can use class Library for get connection for whole web Application

Friend, Web.config has its own advantages.
1) Web.Config is used to store the important information like connections strings etc...so that it can be modified even after the code has been deployed to the server without compiling the entire application again.
2) Since it is a XML file, there is no need of building the project of you are going to change the connection strings.

I see multiples web.config files in the framework 2.0 folder. There is a way to had a web.config.mylibrary file that contains part of the configuration section.For example, I want that the profile section to be in the web.config.mylibrary file and when the web site will be load, the two web.config will be merge. Is it possible to such thing ?
It is possible to-do this using the configSource property on configuration section elements. You could then store different configuration sections in different configuration files in a distributed way.Here is a MSD...Need to put this in a web.config file.

Actually right now I have to update the web.config file which have the settings of my web service project.
I have some tags which already exist there…
I want to replace this full tag with new values….
In this project, I am able to get the string (actually xml tag sets) from the web.config file.
My task is to generate a new string (xml tag string) and replace the old one with the new one.
For more clarification, let me put some exmaple:
i have web.config like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
DNN writes to the web.config file by design.
Is this common practice for web applications? I ask because this strikes me as a possible security hole.

Ok, I have searched everywhere and not been able to find an answer yet so I hope someone can help me. I have an application that uses a key in the web.config file to reference a connection string to SQL Server 2000. In the development environment, this works as expected. However, when I edit the web.config file to reference a new database (initial catalog) it doesn't seem to register for some of the command objects (based on stored procs). I will receive an error that the user could not log on to database X, even though the connection should now be referencing database Y. This only happens w...
