User Accounts ASPNET.mdf
 

I have an ASPNET application running on LAN intranet created with WebDev 2005. At the time, I used a modified version of one of their quickstart samples which included user accounts administration.
I no longer have WebDev 2005 installed but now have WebDev 2008 and it seemingly does no longer have this same feature built in.

(The application is deployed on the server of this intranet. WebDev is not installed there but on a client pc.)

Unfortunately, the application stopped recognizing my user name and paswords. It can connect to the SQL Server instance but does no longer recognize the password.

My questions are now:

1) Can I still administer users and passwords as before with the web based administration tool (I just cannot find out how to connect to this now, as it was being called via the Web dev menu.
How would I do it?

2) Anyone having any experience why suddenly user names / passwords are no longer recognized? Entries for the users still exist in the ASPNET.mdf but they are not plain text. I do know the correct name and password which used to work, that is not the problem.

Regards

Peter

Hi there...

If you know the user name, can you just recover the password to your email? or at least the email you provide when you "register" into the site?...

Users can be "blocked" after 3 tries of entering a wrong password. When that happens, you have to unlock them (using some facilities you add to your site)...

Thanks Gonzalo, great idea.

Just doesn't work unfortunately - I had disabled any such recovery procedure ...

Is there any place where I can look for how these "automatic" user control things are put together? It's all totally ready-made by MS, but there got to be some documentation on it, just I seem to not be able to find much now, since it's maybe "outdated"?

I usually found that kind of info in msdn (over internet). There are examples on how to make that pages that add functionality to the security issue...
