    Hi all,

    At present I am using a connection string stored in my web.config file. What I want to know is that, when I deploy this appication on another network(intranet), how can I manage this connection string?

    Certain issues related to this are:

    - In my web application I have an option to create a new company. If a new company is created, I want that the blank database should be created with the company name. how this is possbile and in this case how I'll manage my connection string?

    Regards,

    The web.config is an xml file and I think there are a few 3th party tools that you can buy to work with it on a live server. But I would not do that because I believe that anytime you change your web.config you force your whole site to recompile.

    I think the best way to handle these database connections is to put them in a main database. Which is a smart way to do it anyway it makes managing these other companies alot easyer. You can create a class that will pull the right database connection from the main database for each companies.
