This shouldn´t be any problem to connect from an sqlexpress to a ordinary sql 2005 there is no changes in the db. You should use the same user that you used on the local machine or you create a new user that is dbowner for you db and uses the schema [dbowner]. Then you have to use that user in you connectionstring in web.config. Best Regards Eric Pettersson(EPiServer)
