Problem using ASP.NET 2.0 Membership and Roles

    I have set-up my web app to use ASP.NET 2.0 membership and roles. It
    works OK on my local Windows XP Professional PC but when I upload the
    site to our Windows 2003 development server it doesn't. The local and
    development server web sites both point to the same SQL Server 2005
    database (located on the development server). When I connect to the
    development server web site and enter my (correct) username and
    password using the Login Control I just get the standard message 'Your
    login attempt was not successful. Please try again.' When I change the
    development server web.config to use no authentication or authorisation
    (i.e. remove the respective tags) then I can interact with the site
    fine. There's obviously some difference between the 2 machines but I
    cannot spot it.

    I've found a solution thanks to someone on another forum. The
    apsnet_Applications table stores the application name. This was
    different between the 2 machines. I've added an applicationName
    property in the web.config to a generic name and changed the entry in
    the table.
