The model backing the 'bwavenueDbContext' context has changed since the database was created. Consider using Code First Migrations to update the database
here is the error image
How can I resolve it?why is it throwing the error?
You may have done database changes in the database, anytime you create a new database, or if you change something about the entity class declarations, such as adding properties or changing data types, then it will detect that the model and the database are not in sync. By default it will simply give you the above error.
You need to run command of
Update-database, in the Nuget package manager console.
Or see "RecreateDatabaseIfModelChanges Feature" in this article: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/07/16/code-first-development-with-entity-framework-4.aspx
You basically need to provide a database initializer that inherits from DropCreateDatabaseIfModelChanges (RecreateDatabaseIfModelChanges is now deprecated). To do this, simply add this line to the
Application_Start method of your
Once you go to production and no longer want to lose data, then you'd remove this initializer and instead use Database Migrations so that you can deploy changes without losing data.
Or in Application_Start() Method in Global.asax.cs file
