first of all: I'm not new in the world of web developers. For years I'm using PHP, started switching over to Frameworks like CakePHP but everytime I came back to my old lovely PHP. NOW it's end with that #*$!. I wanna start with ASP.net, looked some vids and started to explore it a little bit. It was simple to code a login system with the toolbox. When I'm using the login/membership profiles, where the hell ASP.net stores the data? How can I store it in the SQL Server Database to access it later? Example: After logging in I wanna show the username of the logged in person.
Thanks for your tips.
Ah, a second question: How did you started with ASP.net? Did you know some good tutorial-sites for it?
Probably the best resource for learning ASP.Net is... asp.net :)
To find your Membership tables, have a look in the App_Data folder of your project, you should find a SQLExpress database in there.
To store this in your own database you can use the aspnet_regsql.exe [msdn.microsoft.com] tool, which prepares the database with the required tables and stored procedures for using Membership. You can then adapt the web.config file to point to the new DB.
Here is a great tutorial on using the ASP.Net membership:
