Hi,

Having moved from VS2003 I am a bit confused about some of the structures of a project - I find it strange having a db file appearing within a project folder and always assumed that a db file had to be in the SQL \ Data folder ... am I right in saying that this structure is just for the development stage and you have to move any db file on the server to the SQL\ Data folder ?

    • Yes, you can say that.

      Actually you can attach your database to an instance of SQL server even when you leave it in that folder. Once you publish the site you will not need that folder for SQL databases because the hosting provider will attach/restore your database to their SQL instance.
