Like, you know, the members and roles are stored in the database. Like, in the various aspnet_* tables. Like when you sign up for a user (like using the Login control) you get a record in, like, you know, aspnet_Users and in aspnet_Membership.

Like, maybe you are looking at the wrong database? Like you think you create them in one, but they end up in the App_Data folder of your website?

Like, all in all, the data for the Membership services *is* stored in the aspnetdb.mdf database by default (located in App_Data). Like, however, it's possible to change this location. Like this means you should find Users, Roles, Profile, Personalization and more in the database for your application.

Like which database did you check?

Like cheers,
