Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:42:49 PM

again I will ask you what is the real error??

see the link above when I asked you the 1st time.
(I need the error details and line number.. etc etc)

and what kind of a server are you trying to run it on ?
you mention xp pro but in a confusing way ?

, My guess is they are not going to allow you to run your own oledb connector out of your own personal bin directory.

I don't think your going to be able to modify aspprotect to work under that environment very easily, but I would give 1&1 a chance to explain their reasoning and they might actually be able to provide a simple fix who knows.
I have never seen a situation where a host goes messing around with .NET that worked out good for anyone. I'm sure they have a reason, but the entire world writes code to work on the platform as Microsoft shipped it not as someone decided was a better way to set it up.


,



Attached is a SQL script to create the ASPProtect Database with the Option Pack Changes already applied. This lets you create the database in one step and you wont have to make the option pack changes as they are already there.

This only applies to people using MSSQL and doing a new installation.

This scripts are run via SQL Enterprise Manager.

You make a new database then run this script on it in query manager.

2004-06-14_180056_aspprotect_w_option_pack.zip cwilliams38152.7522569444,

Is there a limit to how many access levels the program has?  We were thinking of having a different access level for each client that logs on our site so we can customize their web experience.  We see 6 in one place of the program, 8 in another, but is there any reason why we couldn't make 100 more?

Thanks again for the help!

,

Here is the complete page with the error message:

============================================================ ===

Unspecified error



This means there is most likely a problem with the "ConnectionString" info that you specified.

If you are using a DSN-Less Connection with MSACCESS.

Check that the physical path to the database has been specified correctly.
It has to be perfect and correct. It cannot be specified using "http://" or by using "server.mappath".
It has to be specified like the following example.

ConnectionString = "DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\advpass_pro\_database\passwords.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=admin;PASSWORD=Xpass"

If this is running on an NT server or Win2000 Server make sure that permissions have been set on the database.
Only the server admins can do this. If you are not the admin you will have to ask for this to be done.



If you are using a System DSN

It is not set up correctly. Again, make sure the permissions have been set for the database and that the system DSN has been set up correctly by the server admins.

============================================================ ===

I am the only one on the site since I just transferred the files and in the testing phase.  It is using an MSAccess DB

 

,

well, assuming that function works and is vbscript not vb
(if it is vb code it may need some conversion work)

anyway

in "users/add_new_account.asp"

you would put the code for that function anywhere in the page.. it does not matter where as long as it is in code tags <% %>

then.. right under this part of the same page

If Zipcode_Postal_Code_Required = True Then
 If  Zipcode_Postal_Code = "" Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a Zipcode_Postal_Code.\n\n")
 End IF
End If


add this

If Check_Postcode(Zipcode_Postal_Code) <> True Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a Valid Zipcode_Postal_Code.\n\n")
End If

No guarantees but that is the gist of it

cwilliams38381.6456828704,
Excellent
 
Thanks, the DESC addition did the trick!

,

it might also be a good idea for you to try a simple text file writing example like this on your server and see if it hangs as well

http://www.devasp.com/samples/writetofile.asp

for troubleshooting sake

this is sounding more and more like the filesystem object is blocked or disabled on your server

,

yea.. it sounds like aspimage is not working right.

You wont get any errors..

I would suggest using some of aspimage's sample asp pages in your web and see if they do their thing. You need to be sure aspimage is working correctly under the ,ost simple of circumstances

Though ASPImage is the standard in ASP image resizing and has been around forever and it works very well. Their support is almost non-existant.. in 6 years they have never answered any email I have sent them. I have sent them 6 or so over the years and then just stopped trying. I bought a server bundle too way back then for like 300.00 or so when we had a company called gisco. You would think they could answer my emails. I think that guy just made a ton of asp components back in the day and then just took a seriously long vacation. Updated them a few times in between when he felt like it and making good money the whole time.. More power too him I guess. I'd love to be in his shoes when he sells an enterprise license for 3000.00. Maybe he isn't even around anymore and the someone he knows just kept the sales going. Who knows..

Anyway... it does a great job when ya get it working.

Personally this is how I install it and it works every time.
I like to put their dll in the system32 folder.
Register it.
Run their licensing prog to make it a full version if you paid for it yet.
Right click on the dll and give the "everyone" account modify permissions
Right click on the "windows/temp" folder and give it the same permissions

,

Thanks for your rapid responses, your support is excellent!

It may be best that I stick with html then. You mention that is stresses the Version 7 software, would the unlimited version perform any differently if I use multiple zones?

Also, if I do go with a single zone, would either program be able to make sure each banner is unique, or would there by duplicates for each page view?

Sorry to post so many questions in one day.

,

Could be a mod I guess - it would be nice to have an option on the admin settings page to lock down access of all pages and redirect to a specified  "lockdown" page upon attempted login.

If I'm updating the large files on the server and someone attempts a download, they'll get a partial ZIP file or an error.

[QUOTE=cwilliams]
Is that a real term or just something you named it cause they have like a zillion people using that SQL server?[/QUOTE]

yeah thats it, you buy into a part of the sql server so it's an sql server hotel...

,

Have SQL 2000 backend...
We just moved from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003, used import data routine in SQL to move data.

Logged into admin area. When adding new user, no record is created. However, editing record works just fine.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

,

Kurt,

There really is no default width in general.

The thing to remember is that the default.asp page includes a lot of different pages.. and some of those pages also include pages.

Now all of this gets wrapped by the header and footer include files so in a sense what you do there can effect everything inside to a certain degree.

Now there are some widths set here and there for different tables and what not on certain pages, but its really the kind of situation where you just have to dig around in the code and experiment until you eventualy find what you are looking for and get the desired result.

I'd love to tell you there is easy way to just set a width, but it is not that simple.

Maybe someday it will be. Just not in the current version.

, You are right.
I have SQL server.
From August to today I have used a very simple login system and now I come back to you for better.
I can insert, edit, delete  users but it happens what I mentioned in my first message.
,

Ok I used the following for the sql string.. is this correct?

SELECT COUNT(Album_ID) AS Alb_Count FROM " & tbl_label_albums & " WHERE (User_ID = " & CmdListUsers("User_ID") & " AND Album_Active = '-1'" & ")"

,

one thing to note... the time period we are talking about is going to to be whatever you have the session timeout set at in the settings.

perhaps making that value lower like 10 minutes is an option for you.. and might help to deal with situation

Hi-

Thanks for the quick response to my previous posts.

This is my issue:

I have read over all the docs and installation instructions and can't find a way to do this:

my default page in my root dir will be a log in page which will take the user once his level is validated to a "home page". Is there a page in your examples that will perform the function of this log in page? or should I rename check_user_inc.asp as the default and change it's html output to make it look like my log in page?

I also looked within the code for check_user_inc.asp and did not see where to specify where the user will go once he signs in.

Your help is appreciated

,

Wondering what might be causing a long delay to display the login screen?  This does seem to be intermittent.  Could be server/ISP related? Have experienced enough times to justify posting this question.

I can count up to 20 seconds after clicking on the link.  After login all other selections zip right along without problem.

Please be aware folks..

This file is not provided by CJWSoft. Though this may work very well use of it is not supported in any way. We have not tested it.

This user is not using the option pack so this file will not be compatible with anyone using that because it does not have support for groups and some of the other new features.

Regardless..we appretiate users sharing ideas and solutions that they have come up with.

cwilliams38313.499837963,

It worked after bout 15 minutes.  I receive a response of *3*

However, when I log in as a user who is only a mamber of group1 I still get a response of *3*

,

Hi,

The source code comes with it.
They are the.vb files.

I don't give out any project files for reasons stated in the article below.

Please read this in full if you want to edit the application in Visual Studio.NET

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo85-1.htm

,

The default database password is "temp"

This is noted in the docs. You can also see the current password by looking at your connection string.

cwilliams38176.7913888889,

Confused  Hi, we purched ASP Protect a few months back and had it installed on our hosting company under a "temporary" domain name -- cidrasensors.com

We are now about ready to switch this development site over to production and I need to change the domain from cidrasensors.com to cidra.com

My hosting company wants us to create a new accounting and re-set everyting up.

So...based on this, I have a few questions for you:

1. Do I need to re-install the software? or can I copy from one account to the other?

2. Assuming I can copy the software to the new account - are there changes that will need to be made to point to the new domain?

3. If I decide I wanted to keep the first account alive for development purposes (never turn on the website domain to the public) - would I need to have a seperate ASP Protect license? 

4. If I decided to ask you to do the transfer for us - is that covered in the $20 Installation fee I saw on the web?  

 

, I sent you a PM, Has this been resolved ?, huh?  I think I just covered that as that is the way it must be done., I am out of the server now and I have to get up early to help friends pour concrete in a huge building in 20-30 degree weather (woo hoo)

So I am going to take a break on this until later tommoro.

In the mean time try connecting to the access database with no password on it as well as the access 97 version that I put in the data folder... and see if it runs any faster...screens like the user screen should load fast... not after 15 seconds of waiting like they seem to be doing right now

If none of that helps which it probably wont I can set up the database for you here including the importing later tommoro when I am done pouring concrete
,

I am in process of upgrading from v6 to v7.  I have made database changes, can connect to database and get in to Administration area just fine.  However when I go to create a new user I get the following error

 

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0cc1'

Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

/password_admin/save.asp, line 227

Thanks

 

,

Encountered another issue.  When entering a user name correct but the wrong password get the following error:

 

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in string in query expression '(Username = 'ROBERT') AND (Password = 'ZŁ$'.

/check_user_inc.asp, line 115

Did I do something else wrong?!

 

Thanks

, alternate databases are right here.. the documentation clearly links to this, its really not difficult to find

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo164-1.htm,

More info on the groups session variable.

Session("Groups") will contain the ID numbers of whatever groups the user is a part of.
It does not store the descriptive name of that group. It will show the same data that is actually stored in the "Groups" field in the database.

for example it might hold a value like this

*2*,*5*,*9*

meaning a user is part of groups 2, 5, and 9

so if you wanted to check to see if a user was part of a particular group you would do something like this

<%
If InStr(Session("Groups"),"*9*") Then
     Response.Write("You are a member of group 9")
End If
%>


Taking this even further, if you really wanted to get a particular group's name or description you would have to query the database like so. In this case we ask it the name and description for group 9.

 Group_ID=9
 Set ConnPasswords = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
 ConnPasswords.Open ConnectionString
 Set cmdTemp = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
 Set CmdEditGroup = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
 cmdTemp.CommandText = "SELECT " & tbl_label_groups & ".* FROM " & tbl_label_groups & " WHERE (Group_ID = " & Group_ID & ")"
 cmdTemp.CommandType = 1
 Set cmdTemp.ActiveConnection = ConnPasswords
 CmdEditGroup.Open cmdTemp, , 0, 1
  
 Group_Name = CmdEditGroup("Group_Name")
 Group_Desc = CmdEditGroup("Group_Desc")

, you can edit the look of it but because it is licensed software the links to aspbanner and the aspbanner logo.. etc etc must remain  otherwise change it all you like.,

Regarding (ASP Photo Gallery Pro)

If you are looking to import a very, very, large number of images, the upload feature might not be sufficient for you. I have done some work using a unix terminal to be able to upload as many images as I would like by simply placing the images in the directory and renaming the images. There are other ways to rename the images, but I am very familiar with Linux, so I chose to do it this way. If you are running Linux, MacOS, or another Linux-based OS, you can simply pull up a terminal and run the following command in the appropriate directory. If you run Windows, I'd suggest CygWin, which creates a Linuxenvironment (Linux shell). It can be found at www.cygwin.com In order to be recognized by the ASP software, the images must be in the format of pic_"Album Number"_"Picture Number".jpg . Therefore, the following code is run to accomplish the file name change (on one line without wordwrap):

ls -1 DSC* |
sed 's/DSCN//g'
sed 's/.JPG//g' |
awk '{print "mv DSCN"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".jpg"}'
This command will change all files beginning in "DSCN" to "pic_9_*Picture Number*".

This does have a slight problem however. If there is a large number of pictures, 0's become a problem. For example, if there are 200 pictures, picture 1 will show up as pic_9_001.jpg. This can be fixed by the following command, which will eliminate unneccesary 0's (All on one line once more):

ls -1 --color='never' pic_9_0*
|sed 's/_0/_/g'
|sed 's/pic_9_//g'
|sed 's/.jpg//g'
|awk '{print "mv pic_9_0"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".JPG"}'

This command eliminates 1 zero. It should be run as many times as needed to eliminate all zero's.

Please Note: These commands will only show the resultant set (The list of picture names). In order to execute them, they must be output to a shell script using the ">" character as follows:

ls -1 DSC* |
sed 's/DSCN//g'
sed 's/.JPG//g' |
awk '{print "mv DSCN"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".jpg"}' > temp.sh

Then, the shell script must be run using the following command:

sh temp.sh

This might take a few moments, depending on the amount of picture names that are being changed.

IMPORTANT: BACK UP all files before changing file names. Also, view the resultant sets to make sure it's what you want before outputting to a shell script.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post or e-mail me @ JPortnoy@checkernet.com

(Capcha Security Image Mod)

This mod will add a Capcha Security Image to the registration signup form.



Instructions:

Download the latest version of the ASP Security Image Generator from this site. http://www.tipstricks.org/

Unzip that download and copy "aspcaptcha.asp" and "aspcaptcha_distort.asp" into the aspprotect "users" folder.

Now edit "users/register.asp" with a text editor and add the code shown below in blue. The code to add goes near the bottom of the form right above the submit button. Just add the blue code. The code around it is shown to help you find the area of code where it gets placed.


    <tr>
      <td valign="top" align="right"><font face="Arial" size="2"><strong>
  Newsletter</strong></font></td> ; ; ; ; ; ; ;
      <td valign="top">
  <input type="checkbox" name="Newsletter" value="True" checked>
  <font face="Arial" size="1">Do you want to be subscribed to the
  newsletter ?</font></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
      <td valign="top" align="right"></td>
      <td valign="top">&nbsp;<img src="aspcaptcha.asp" alt="" width="86" height="21" />
   <font face="Arial" size="2" color="#000000">Type the characters shown in image for verification.</font><br>
   <input name="strCAPTCHA" type="text" id="strCAPTCHA" maxlength="8" /></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
        <p align="center"><input type="submit" value="Register"></p>
      </td>
    </tr>


ok, now edit "users/add_new_account.asp" with a text editor and add the code shown below in blue. Just add the blue code. The code around it is shown to help you find the area of code where it gets placed.

If User_Custom6_Used = True Then
 If User_Custom6_Required = True Then
  If  Custom6 = "" Then
   ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a " & User_Custom6_Name &".\n\n")
  End IF
 End If
End If
 
 strCAPTCHA = Trim(Request.Form("strCAPTCHA"))
 if strCAPTCHA = Trim(Session("CAPTCHA_" & Session.SessionID)) then
 else
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You did not type in the verification info correctly.\n\n")
 End If 

 
If ErrorMessage <> "" Then
 Response.Redirect "register.asp?" & Request.Form & "&ErrorMessage=" & ErrorMessage
 Response.End
End If

Your done. You just added a Capcha Security Image to your signup form. If you would like a more distorted image that is more difficult for an automated program to figure out change the image tag to call the "aspcaptcha_distort.asp" page instead. It will look more like this.

I have gone back to your original files and uploaded them to another server folder and instead of using a DSN I have tried this with a DSN less connection and changed the database to MS Access 2002.

This has corrected the problem.
I will check this out again using the DSN with access 2002 to see if this was the problem. It may be something to do with an older format of database on this particular server.

I will let you know what I find.

Thanks for your  quick reply.

I am trying to import a file, and I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03f9'

Expected 'Then'

/aspprotect/password_admin/upload_post.asp, line 6

If Session("Admin") <> "True"
-----------------------------^
 
Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Thank you.

Hi there, I am not exactly what you mean when you say "moved some of the include files to user"

are you saying you are moving files around ? I am not sure what you mean there.

but.. the parent path issue is described in detail here

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo5-1.htm


Having is enabled is actually a requirment of the photo gallery application as stated on the web site
http://www.aspphotogallery.com/aspgallery_pro.asp

You can certainly still use the apllication but as that article says you will need to change any file includes to virtual includes so they will work with parent paths disabled



 

,

The only major usability issue I've found to date is multi-zone banners. Cloning is helpful to a point, but then if you have a change to that banner, you have to make the change 6 times or what have you. I think, even at the expense of speed, multi-zone capability for a single banner would be excellent addition. Of course, that supposes I haven't just missed it and it's already there.

cwilliams38453.6665509259,

I really need more info on what you have going on?

This can sometimes be cause by a slow server / bad data connection.

Sometimes caused when someone is using the option pack but did not make the proper changes to the database.

Sometimes caused when a user adds users the database on his own and does some "incorrect" things..

The more details you can provide the better. Think of anything and everything and describe it.

SQL or MSACCESS... version of either
Server OS
Using Option Pack or not
Did you have your host set permissions...

etc etc etc
