I have been trying for quite some time now to solve my problem. I am unsure if there is a fault with my database or if there is something wrong with the code or my connection string. On my local system, the YAF website works perfectly.
This is the error that i get

Server Error in '/' Application.
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

I have no idea why it would be causing a null reference error, am i doing something wrong when it comes to uploading the website? I am using VS 2008 to do my editing and uploading through the VS 2008 ftp. The whole website builds successfully with no errors. You can check it out at www.pwnconclave.com
Can someone please help me?

I'd start by getting the "recommended" connection string settings from your ISP. In the mean time, post your string here, maybe we can spot something.

ok i will place the connection string here on my next post, i was wondering, does that particular line of code "Line 108: this.Controls.Add( forumControl );" call the database?
