I'm creating a custom MembershipProvider for FBA authentification.

When I access the root url of the web app http://sp:6336/, my provider is initialized. Value of "applicationName" in web.config is ok. I save it to private field.

Then I choose "FBA" in combobox.

Then, in validate user, value of "applicationName" is lost. Because I am in another instance of the custom membership, and "current" web.config is the one of central administration!

What is wrong with my config?
