asp.net-mvc c# code-first entity-framework-6 sql-server

Question

I'm working on a joke web application.

I work with C#, Entity Framework, MVC and I do code-first.

Now when i try to read out something in my DB, the error I put in the title shows up. And I have no idea what to look for. I looked up Google but I didn't quite get an answer...

I try to provide all the code that you could need to know:

public class Context : DbContext
{
    public DbSet<Categorie> Categories {get;set;}

    public Context() : base("Witze_DB")
    {
    }
}

public class HomeController : Controller
{
    private Context db;

    public HomeController(Context db)
    {
        this.db = db;
    }

    public ActionResult Index()
    {
        var allCats = db.Categories;
        return View(allCats);
    }
}

And this is the Index.cshtml file:

@model IEnumerable<Witze.Categorie>

@{
ViewBag.Title = "Index";
}

<h2>Index</h2>

<p>
@Html.ActionLink("Create New", "Create")
</p>
<table>
<tr>
    <th>
        @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.Name)
    </th>
    <th></th>
</tr>

@foreach (var item in Model) {
<tr>
    <td>
        @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Name)
    </td>
    <td>
        @Html.ActionLink("Edit", "Edit", new { id=item.CategorieId }) |
        @Html.ActionLink("Details", "Details", new { id=item.CategorieId }) |
        @Html.ActionLink("Delete", "Delete", new { id=item.CategorieId })
    </td>
</tr>
}

</table>

This is what I get back: (it would be much longer, if it does help you I will post the rest as well, it's just more System.Data.SqlClient...)

Accepted Answer

Have a look at the stacktrace, you have the following error:

The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 52 - Unable to locate a Local Database Runtime installation. Verify that SQL Server Express is properly installed and that the Local Database Runtime feature is enabled.

Most probably, your connection string is invalid.
