Just wondering is this possible : I have some local databases which run fine. If I could move them all up to a server online it would be great (with their data and all that).

Currently, what I'm doing is creating the datbaases remotely and creating the tables to match the ones on my project along with the tables then uploading using webmatrix and setting the appropriate connection string to the databases on the server (not even sure if this will work, haven't been able to test it yet).

Just wondering, since I'd potentially save a lot of time and effort, could I just move the local database online as part of the publish process?
