Default Help with membership Provider...

Hi, i need to implement a Custom membership provider since i need to validate users from an online db sql server 2005 (not express) .

So i write the class CustomMembershipProvider.cs and put into my app_code folder, then i configured my web.config

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0">
            <deny users="?" />
      <membership defaultProvider = "CustomMembershipProviver"
             userIsOnlineTimeWindow = "15">
          <add name = "CustomMembershipProvider"
             type = "CustomMembershipProvider"
             connectionStringName = "xString"
             enablePasswordRetrieval = "true"
             enablePasswordReset = "true"
             requiresQuestionAndAnswer = "true"
             writeExceptionsToEventLog = "true" />

    <add name="xString" connectionString="Server=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;UID=xxxx; pwd=xxxxxx;Database=xxxxx" />

and i just got a error: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

 <deny users="?" />
Line 6: </authorization>
Line 7: <membership defaultProvider = "CustomMembershipProviver" AT THIS LINE RED
Line 8: userIsOnlineTimeWindow = "15">
Line 9: <providers>

i'm missing something?, may i do something more?... or there is something wrong?

This line says it all. Go into IIS and make sure your project is configured as an application.
