I had no trouble whatsoever following this tutorial leading to the authentication part.
I'm running MVC with VS10 SP1 and MySQL (connector 6.3.something). I have several pages and functions in my code that successfully uses the database.
Everything works well during chapter 7 of the tutorial. I can create users and roles and the schema gets autogenerated. Every time that I go to a page that requires authentication, the logon pages comes up as expected. However, after clicking the "log
on" button, the same page gets reloaded. No sign of a failed or a successful logon. It's just the same page. (I saw some people had the same issue, but never reported how to fixed).
Following the code, I noticed that this function never gets called. I assume it should:
public ActionResult LogOn(LogOnModel model, string returnUrl)
