I had a SQL version of 1.5.  All my posts were stored in SQL but my users came from Users.xml under appdata.   I've upgraded, and everything was successful, however, I have no users.  It wants to 'read' my users from dbo.be_Users which is an empty table.   All my users are in users.xml.   I can manually add them to the table, but not sure how to do this properly as the table has a blogid field that I do not know what goes in there.    I want to make sure if i manually add them, then the existing posts won't be properly associated to them.   How can I fix my blog?  Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

You should be able to log in as admin/admin and add users from admin panel.

Also, web.config has separate membership provider entry that you can set to DB or XML per your choice.
