    Sitefinity db connection string used to be in web.config in 3.7 and doesn't seem to be there anymore in 4.1. I found a post that said it was in the App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/DataConfig.config file, but I don't seem to have that file in my project. Can someone please direct me to the connection string info so i can change it?

    sitefinity v4.1
    THanks,

    ...that's where it is...if you dont see it in VS, try the file system directly?

    VS2010 has an include button at the top of the solution explorer, perhaps you need to toggle that and Include the file in the in the solution?

    Yup, the file is there, but the solution doesn't include it - either add the file to the solution so it is visible inside VS, or just edit the underlying file in notepad if you feel the need :)
