How to Repair In nopCommerce, the ConnectionString attribute has not been initialized.

connection-string entity-framework nopcommerce ysod

Question

I'm trying to integrate nopCommerce into a third party system but am hitting a problem when I try to access any nopCommerce pages. Because I'm integrating with a third party system I've had to merge web.configs and copy all files over. I have a standalone install of nopCommerce aswell and that is running fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The error I am getting is as follows:


The ConnectionString property has not been initialized. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: The ConnectionString property has not been initialized.

You need to have a valid connection string for the NopCommerce database in web.config, and you need to ensure that it gets read.

At Application_Start in global.asax NopCommerce reads in the connection string and injects it into the business logic DLL. If that doesn't happen, the data access layer (in the business logic DLL) won't be able to open a connection and you'll get the error you just posted. I suggest check web.config and global.asax; if both look good put a breakpoint in Application_Start.
