See Overriding Connection Strings. Does that apply to websites using ASP.Net Web Forms? The article says “the issue you’re experiencing”. I am not sure what issue that is. How does the author know what I am experiencing? That article probably does not apply to me so it would help if it could say something so I know to ignore it.
What makes things more confusing is that there are connection strings when I execute in GearHost but the relevant connection string is wrong.
