I'm trying to setup FBA for SharePoint 2010 in my environment.
I've written my custom membership provider that communicates with my custom SQL database - i'm not using default SQL FBA database for this.
I've implemented login/registration controls for user creation and authentication.
I'm using only membership not role provider (i don't need to validate any roles !)
When i debug the application, everything seems to work fine as far as communicating to my custom database is concerned, i can debug my application properly. perfect
but somehow, i'm not able to setup the FBA working.
in my extended web application - when user is validated - i get 500 error - saying that user could not be validated. As far as i have seen - this is because claims authentication fails for that user !
i've followed all the steps to configure FBA for SharePoint 2010 but still this is not working fine.
I've modified the web.config for central administration site
added in web.config - connection string and membership provider
same for STS web.config- my web application and extended web application
in extended web app i've setup default claims membership provider as the default (i) - as it was mentioned in many of the blogs.
