    I have a local instance that was initially created using a local SDF file. I now want to point that to a remote db but can't find a way to force the local instance to use the new connection string.

    How do I force a local cloud build to use remote db?

    Thanks Mark

    You should be able to just change the connectionstring in web.config, but I'm not sure you will get all the content moved to your other environments.

    I would suggest you have a chat with the support in umbraco cloud on this.

    When you start the project locally the Deploy plugin steps in and creates the local db and uses that:

    Umbraco.Deploy.Cloud.LocalInitializer - Run :: initializing

    Umbraco.Deploy.Cloud.LocalInitializer - Run :: Is not running remote, Is not using Sql Azure.

    Umbraco.Deploy.Cloud.LocalInitializer - Run :: web.config configured with a SqlServer/LocalDb database.

    Even if you have a remote DB in the web.config!
