In web.config:

<add name="ApplicationServices"
="" connectionstring="data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|<b>DataDirectory</b>|\aspnetdb.mdf;User Instance=true" providername="System.Data.SqlClient">

** |DataDirectory| I need to provide the same '.mdf' for two seperate web applications. How can I achieve this?


Thanks. How can I connect to the same sqlexpress default db using connection string or I'll have to make use of custom providers?

If you use a connection string that connects to a database instance, instead of to a physical file, there should be no issue. Otherwise, I suspect you can only do it if one site is in a subdomain of another, or if you can set up file access so that a full path can be used ( although I doubt this is possible, a web app does not have access above it's root, I think you'd need to make your DB file visible to the world on a URL to do that ).
