@blowdart: thank blowdart!
i am using WebForms, i tried both web site and web application, none of they creates Forgot page for me. i can create it myself, I know i need to wire it up with email server, but i don't know how to wire it up with Identity (maybe in web.config?). can you please help?
In VS2013 they should create the page for you. What authentication options did you choose when creating the project?
If I go File -> New Project, then choose ASP.NET Web Application (making sure it's .NET Framework 4.5), click OK then on the right what does it say beside "Authentication:"?
WebForms or MVC?
If I create an MVC app I get a password recovery page at http://.../Account/ForgotPassword
For WebForms it's under /Account/Forgot
But you do need to do some work to wire it up, because we don't know what email you're using.
@blowdart: Ah, that makes sense. I was thinking each web server would have its own instance of a state server. So what's the real benefit of using SQLServer or StateServer or vice versa? You have a single point of failure in both cases. Is persistence across reboots the only benefit of using SQLServer?
Well, you can have fail over SQL servers quite easily. But given that session should be transient data anyway IMO ....
Compiler switches? No; just plain old code. Start a new MVC project. Look at how the routes are configured, how security is wired up, it's all code.
Connection strings, the simple stuff is still there, but as configuration tends to be program specific anyway for the more complicated bits like, for example, reading roles from a config file, would end up being you writing code to read and process it, so why pretend a generic solution is going to cut it?
