Default aspnetdb.mdf

This is the exception I get when my app tries to run:

An attempt to attach an auto-named database for file C:\Documents and Settings\MyServer\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\WebSites\MyApplication\App_Data\aspnetdb.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists,
or specified file cannot be opened, or it is located on UNC share.

Also I looked at the connection manager and this is what I found:

LocalSQLServer: data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspn etdb.mdf;User Instance=true

What is meant by LocalSqlServer?

My database is also listed, however, it has the connection string that is in my web config file.

Should the aspnetdb be listed in my web config also?

Thank you,
