Getting the error: "provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified"

This error usually indicates that your application is trying to connect to a SQL Express database. We do not support SQL Express databases on our shared servers.

 

You will have to upsize your SQL Express Database to SQL 2008 and change the web.config file connection string to point to the SQL server.
