I have authentication on my site and it works fine on my local machine but it has stopped working on my live one. Basically once a user logs in, if the role he/she has is listed in web.config as being "Access denied" then it redirects them to a page where they are given an error message.On the live on it doesn't redirect the user, it brings up a page with "Access denied creating App_Data subdirectory etc.." on it.I noticed that there is no App_Data folder on the live site, but there is on my local pc (with a ASPNETDB.mdf file in it). So I created an App_Data folder on the live site and now I don't get the "Access denied " error but a timeout error instead.I presume this is because the live site does not have the ASPNETDB.mdf file.I am wondering for user authentication does this file have to be on the live site, could someone have deleted it? If so can I copy the one from my local pc to the live site?I hope I am making sense, thanks for any replies.
