I am kinda new to asp.net. I used asp backing flash for most of the site work i have done, but I have shied away from flash and I am having some issues understanding asp.net membership.
I am currently using the web.config file to set the credentials for forms authentication. I would like to store the member credentials in an xml file, but I can only seem to find examples on the net about how to store the credentials in an sql database. I could create my own authentication system using session variables and xml. But it is mentioned all over the net that this is frowned upon.
So how do i save member information in a separate xml file? and if I do. is there a difference in how I authenticate a user?
I would like to also point out that I am using a webserver that supports only asp.net 2.0
