If you want EF to create your database under App_Data folder.

First set your connection string as below. Please note that the name should be same as your DbContext class name.

<add name="AppDB"
           connectionString="data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|mydatabase.mdf;User Instance=true;Initial Catalog=myDataBase"
           providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

Example of context file.

public class AppDB : DbContext
        public AppDB()
            : base("name=AppDB")
