As I posted this thing in a different forum but no body helped.
I have created a role "registered" (using Administration wizard) also and created one user under this role. But still cant login to the

Data Source=LAPTOP\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=yaf_db;User ID=myuser;Password=mypassword
~/upload/
1

false






and here is my web.config





type="Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.Configuration.RewriterConfigurationSectionHandler,
Intelligencia.UrlRewriter"/>


connectionString="Data Source=LAPTOP\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=mem_DB;User ID=myserid;
Password=mypassword"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>







applicationName="/"
name="customRoleProvider"
type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider"/>





applicationName="/"

Sorry but custom membership providers are outside the scope of support I can provide.... just way too many variables.

Hi Jaben,

No, its not custom. its just standard aspnet membership and roles.
I think you guys are saying it can be used, but dont know how.

You have 2 different databases configured - one for your existing members and the other for yaf. I'm pretty sure they need to be the same database. It's ok to install yaf into your existing database, it prefixes everything with "yaf_" so it won't overwrite anything.

I was wrong - it doesn't need to be the same database.

There isn't anything you need to change in the web.config for yaf to work with your existing membership. Yaf will use whatever provider you already have configured. The first time an authenticated user visits the forum, yaf will add that user to its database.

You still need to install and configure yaf itself, though. You said that you created the "Registered" role. The yaf install does this, so if you had to do this yourself, it sounds like maybe you didn't run the install?

Hi jshelper,

When you say authenticated user, how can it be authenticated when it doesnt find that user in
yaf database, coz that user is in other tables (aspnet_Membership and others). It wont let the user
go, coz it validates to its own tables, or should i use some other interface to log in where they are authonticated
by aspnet tables.

Your help will be appritiated.

Yaf doesn't do the authentication - asp.net does. Yaf just asks asp.net who the current user is.
