    Hello Rosy,

    There seems to be a problem with your SQL server.  It is not up or you cannot access it. You could take a look at this article Troubleshooting: Timeout Expired and try to narrow down the problem. You could also create a simple page in another ASP.NET web application and use SqlConnect to try the connection.

    Best wishes,
