Error 26: RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi good evening...

     When i add new "SQL server database" in my web application i'm getting error as "A network-related or instance-specific error occured while establishing a connection to sql server.  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 Interface, error:26-Error Location server/instance specified)

    I'm beginner in asp.net.. can you please help me to resolve this error....

    Earlier i did't get any error like this.. I got this error once when i uninstalled sql server 2010 and vs2012...

    I'm at present using vs 2010 with inbuilt database and got this error.. 

    Thank you.. Have a smiley day...
