Converting and old 4.7 app to .net6 and unsure how to change old calls to methods which are not in 6

Occasional Visitor

I am converting an old app to .net6 but cannot find a solution for a couple of errors which I am getting.


Any help would be appreciated


        public static DbConnection Connection(HttpContextBase httpContext, string configurationFileName, string connectionName)
            return Connection(connectionName);

 error occuring on HttpContextBase


            internal static Configuration Find(string name)
                // Search configurations used and imported from xml stores.
                Configuration configuration = _configurations.Value.Find(c => c.Name == name);
                if (configuration != null) return configuration;
                // TODO: Search configurations in settings.setting.

                // Search configurations in web.config and <applicationname>.config.
                var newconfiguration = new Configuration()
                    Name = name,
                    ConnectionString = WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[name].ConnectionString,
                    ProviderName = WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[name].ProviderName,
                    Provider = AddProvider(WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[name].ProviderName)
                return newconfiguration;



Error occuring on ConnectionString[name]
