Hi All. I am warpped around the axle on this one. Installed the YAF as recommended in my existing application. Getting DB connection errors. My existing application uses a seperate App.Config file. I merged all the necessary chages to the existing applications web config and makes a reference to the App.Config file. I added the yafnet connection string key to the App.config file. Now Im getting the following error while loading up the forums.

Line 248: get

Line 249: {

Line 250:

Line 251: //return ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["yafnet"].ConnectionString;

Line 252: }

[NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.]

YAF.Classes.Config.get_ConnectionString() in C:\Yafsrc\YAF.Classes\YAF.Classes.Config\Config.cs:250

YAF.Classes.Data.YafDBConnManager.InitConnection() in C:\Yafsrc\YAF.Classes\YAF.Classes.Data\DBAccess.cs:75



Does anyone know why Im getting this issue or I cant keep the connection string in the AppConfig file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is not your app.config file. It's your db.config file.

Add the yafnet connection string where you are putting your connection strings.
