Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:49:08 PM

I am having trouble getting any information to show up in the log files directory or anything showing up on the log files tab in the administrator.  I have set the following variables under the settings tab:

UseLogFiles checked and
value of LogFileDirectory is "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wf\data\logfiles"

I checked the permissions on that folder and they are set so that the Internet Guest account has full control on that directory.

I also checked RecentActiveUsers and RecentPageRequrests.

I am sure I am missing something simple but no files are ever showing up in the logfiles directory...anyone have similar problems or at least successes?

Thanks!!


,

someone has to do something other than me.. i've given up

if i give u the username/pw can you set this up on the network solutions host and ask them to set whatever permissions are needed?

cant do it anymore....

You cannot use server mappath in the connecting string of the application. If you want to know why read my article.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/physical-path.asp

Make your connecting string just like in my example.. do not use the oledb connection string either as it will cause other problems.

If you need to find out the path to the mdb file you can use server.mappath to get that info but do not put server mappath in the connecting string. See my article again.

then if the database folder has proper permissions and the path to the mdb file is valid it will work... otherwise you get useless errors,  its really that simple.

You also may want to download ASPTest from www.cjwsoft.com it is designed to show a person how to setup a working data connection.,

dsn-less is the way to go..
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo9-2.htm

you also need to use newer versions of the database as the odbc drivers on the server are sometimes very new and no longer work with access 97 databases

, FYI. There is a typo in the upgrade (6.0 to 7.0) instructions. It specifies adding a field named "passwords". Should be "password"., I have been using the AspHttp Component method for displaying my ads along with the google adsense code.  However, in the last few days my site was taking too long to load, so I replaced the AspHttp component, with Javascript method.  The site was back to speed.  But now, the Google Adsense banners do not show up.  Is there a solution for that?  Can the Javascript show Adsense banners also?  Because they do show the Flash banners.,

Aspprotect issue

I need the ability to allow users to view url links on a page, based on the

group(s) they are a member of.  If the user is the member of one group (group 1 in the following example) the code works fine.

<% If Session("GROUPS") = "*1*" then %>  "view link #1"

However, if the user is a member of more than one group (let's say 1 & 5), I cannot make the code work.  

I have tried various versions of wildcards, nothing seems to get me there.

I fairly new at ASP, and I am sure I'm missing something simple.

Any help would be appreciated.

 

,

I'll try to help when I get back tues night,, see the contact page for info on where I am .
http://www.cjwsoft.com/contact/default.asp?Subject=CJWSoft+G eneral+Inquiry

,

That's exactly what it was.

The site owner couldn't see their own ads because Norton was blocking anything with the word ad in it.

On another note: I changed the word 'ad' to 'listing' and got it to show even with Norton.

 

, I have no idea.. perhaps PM me info on how to log into your site and reproduce the issue.,

I am running .asp pages and using the longer code method to display flash banners on my site.

I have noticed a considerable decrease in the loading of my index page when I have a banner called.  When I remove the banner, all is fine.

Any suggestions?

Dave

, who knows, thanks for your input, I am further than I was when I started talking to you!,

ALL FIXED.. tested with real paypal accounts and a live system
works perfectly

THIS FIX IS ONLY FOR PAYPAL SUBSCRIPTIONS

Download this file "ipn.asp" and put it in the "paypal_sub_signup" folder
2005-03-10_164645_aspprotect_subscription_fix.zip

Basically somehow an older version of the this file was in the original download archive.

I am VERY SORRY

Anyone who purchased ASPProtect 7 before March 11, 2005 should download this fix.

cwilliams38421.7018055556,

If you run asplistings auto in its own folder with its own application in IIS. Connected to its own database.

And you run your other version of ASPListiings in its own folder with its own application in IIS. Connected to its own database.

You will have zero major changes to make to anything... other than what you did above..

But remember theyare the same app and share a lot of thing including sessions and application variables.. that is why if they are installed in the same domain each one needs its own application set in the IIS console so they run seperately of one another.

cwilliams38312.5189814815,

Well I have the web hosting tech looking into the memory issues at this point.  Unfortunately I don't have another machine to be able to run the asp on that would run it correctly so that I can just publish it over.

,

Look in the "check_user_inc.asp" file..

You'll see the name of the cookie there and also get an idea how to access it.

In most versions it looks like this.

Request.Cookies("PASWORDSYSTEMCOOKIE")("COOKIE_USERNAME")

You'll want the cookie for the username because the session variable will not exist unless they have actually gone to a protected page during that session at the site.

It would probably be best the check for both the session and the cookie. That will make sure people logged in that arent using the cookie option still see the message you want to display.

Sorta like this..

GetUsername = ""
If Request.Cookies("PASWORDSYSTEMCOOKIE")("COOKIE_USERNAME") <> "" Then
GetUsername = Request.Cookies("PASWORDSYSTEMCOOKIE")("COOKIE_USERNAME")
Else If Session("Username") <> "" Then
GetUsername = Session("Username")
End If

Response.Write GetUsername

cwilliams38298.9175, oh, its timing out during the import ??

I didnt know that. I thought you said it was timing out after when you tried to log in.

That changes everything...

Let me start again cause I think I know the problem., Oh snap. Tried the blank database and got the same errors. Fixed THE FILE PATHS to conform to the AspProtect 7 setup, and it worked like a champ. I still need to copy and paste the info, but it's working just fine with the ones I add manually.

Moral of the story: FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER.
,

I purchased two site licenses for ASP Protect a while back and am now trying to implement the application.

The connection to the database is fine, because it recognizes the user and displays the user name.  However, there must be a problem with the permission because I get the DNS error information from the On Error in the check_user_inc.asp file.

I set the permissions on my PC as you indicated, both on the folder and the database file.  But get the error and cannot access the database to view or modify.  I also uploaded the file to my web server and set the permissions as well, but get the same problem.

You mention on your forum that it is not the code, but I don't understand if the code is correct and if it finds the database and the permissions have been set as you indicate, why doesn't the code work?

,

More Upgrade Info

To upgrade an existing ASPBanner system please follow these steps.

Back up your old system completely before starting.

Install the new system per the installation instructions that came with it.

Once it is running simply use your old ASPBanner database with the new system.

You may also want to keep your banner images folder from before in the same location so your existing banners still link to valid image urls because the new system stores banner images in a new location.

Since the config table in the database is no longer used you will need to go to the settings screen of aspbanner again and configure things. The config table in your old database can be deleted or left alone. It won't be used anymore so it does not matter either way.

That is all there is to it. If you have any issues please ask in the forums and we will help you out.

cwilliams38211.7525231481, Oh, to clarify the above.  We did not change any columns in your [Users] database or any other table., Got it.  Thanks Chris!

I think you getting all confused about dsn's and what they really are.

A system dsn gets created via the ODBC control panel and gets listed there. A system dsn is nothing more than a registry entry telling information about where the database is an how to connect to it. Then every time code accesses the database it has to do a registry lookup. The whole process adds a lot of delays, causes very poor performance and is unnecessary.

A dsn-less connection simply connects directly to the database by specifying the driver being used, where the database is, and some other information like the password if there is one.

To get aspprotect or any other ASP application using a database all you have to do is make sure the database folder has correct permissions and then make a connection string like so. (with the correct info for your directory structure of course)

DBQ=c:\inetpub\wwwroot\aspprotect_6\data\database\ASPProtect _access2002.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp

If you are wondering Access databases always use the same username.

So, basically if permissions are set correctly and the directory is valid it will work.
It is really that simple. 99% of the time when people have problems it is one or the other.

That being said, don't worry about the odbc control panel and what is listed there for connections. All we really care about is that odbc drivers are installed and somewhat current.


One last thign for reference: even if you do make a system dsn the database folder still needs the correct permissions.

cwilliams38417.7371643518, Thank you!!

Yippee!

I really do not know.. maybe it is a conflict with something else..

I run many instances of aspbanner on my servers and I have every item to log enabled for my iis log files... my stats server software which reads those log files (livestats and smarterstats) have never reported any 404 errors related to (aspbanner/those images)...

I do not know what is happening in your situation..

sorry.

,

Whein I went by the numbers off of your directions, which work well up to that point, the import would time out.

At that point I tried to import directly into access...and then it hung trying to login.

okay so I've put in a clean database and created a new record for me as admin.

,

let's try this... edit that page with a text editor like notepad...

Carefully replace any instance of "Cint" with "CDbl".. I may have missed some of those when testing the last time I edited the code.

, Alright...I'll try those out.  Also, if I do the data import on my laptop initially and just publish it to the server do you think that will help?,

It is refered to as the internet guest account but that isn't the actual username. The username is different for every machine. It usually starts off with "IUSR_" and then your machine name. "Internet Guest Account" is always the account's full name as labeled by IIS when it is installed.

Regardless,

If an account isn't listed you have to add it.

Click (add-advanced-find now) and it will list off all the user accounts on the machine

You can also click (add-advanced) and simply type in the account name or part of it.

Some more tips:

If on a local machine you always just give the "everyone" account full control which is pretty much going to make anything work.

You can also go to computer management in your server's administrative tools and view all of the accounts  and groups there under "Local Users and Groups".

Found this but I dont really know what to do with it or even if its the right thing.

It's probably something I could do for you as a custom project if you are interesting in paying to have that work done, but it is probably not something that will be added to this version of aspbanner as it is in my opinion a feature more suited for a more expensive software package.

It is also difficult to get ASP code to do things on it's own. Scheduling something to run on the server or some other clever scenario is necessary and that usually means it would be unique to each persons setup.

(gif, bmp, jpg, zip, exe, pdf, rar, mp3,etc..)
cwilliams38413.5933680556, You can not edit that code with dreamweaver. It will re-arrange the asp and kill it.
If you want to change the look of the login html you have to edit the html by hand in a text editor.

Or create what you want on a blank page using your editor of choice and carefully use parts of that in the ASPProtect code.

In version 7 the login screen is one asp page by itself and is much easier to edit with just about any editor. In version 6 you have to know your html and be careful.

Either way I am not sure templates are a good idea for something like that. That sort of thing tends to cause problems with dynamic code that executes under different directory levels. You want to stick to regular html techniques. ,

ok,

IE and firefox do some things differently.

It could very well have to do with MIME types set on the server for your website. pdf probably isnt set as a mime type which can cause issues with file streaming situations.

Mime types are either set in the IIS console for your web site under the http headers tab or you can try setting the content-type header to 'application/pdf' right on the asp page the does the streaming

see this article which shows how to do that
http://psacake.com/web/gj.asp

'Specify a MIME type such as "text/html", "image/gif" or "application/pdf"
Response.contenttype = "application/pdf"
'Useful in cases for unknown file types

You would want to put the code that sets the contentype as close to the top of the asp page doing the streaming as possible.

I purchased the ASPGallery Pro last week and still cannot get it running. When I enter www.vickerylightning.com/aspgallery/dataconn_inc.asp on the screen it says "Not a valid bookmark"

Below is the connection string. My hosting company uses server map paths:

'Create database connection

'Create a connection odject
Set adoCon = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

'Database connection info and driver
'strCon = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("aspgallery_access2002.mdb")

'Alternative drivers faster than the generic access one above
'strCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("aspgallery_access97.mdb") 'This one is if you use Access 97
'strCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("aspgallery_access2000.mdb") 'This one is for Access 2000/2002
GalleryConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Jet OLEDB:Database Password=temp; Data Source=\\NAWINFS04\home\users\web\b2623\rh.vickery2004\aspga llery\aspgallery_access2002.mdb; "
GalleryDatabaseType = "MSACCESS"

adoCon.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="&Server.MapPath ("\aspgallery\aspgallery_access2002.mdb") & ";"

Definitely need some assistance!

I just added this line to the paypal1.asp page

<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="CAD">

and it worked.  Clearly other values can be entered for other currencies.  Everything was listed in this manual https://www.paypal.com/en_US/pdf/subscriptions.pdf.

I am not entirely sure how one configures the system to assign a user to a specific group.  For example, let say I have created two groups A and B, and I have pages protected by the code generated in the admin area for groups A and B.  I know I can assign access to these groups in the admin area.  However,  it is not clear to me how I do it automatically through the registration process.

UPDATE..

Installed a new rack mount 1u server this week.

3.2 ghz hyperthreading 1 mb l2 cache prescott cpu
2 gb pf pc3200 kingston memory
SATA Raid.. (2) 120 gb drives running hardware raid 1

It is a supermicro 1u server case and server motherboard.
The hard drives are SATA 150 120 gb 7200 rpm Diamondmax Maxtors

All high end server type stuff... It's a very powerful server and has been running great all week. 500+ hours uptime so far.

Running Windows 2003 Server Enterprise
SQL 2000 Enterprise SP3
SmarterMail
SmarterStats
Windows DNS
ZipEnable (which I am reviewing for them)
ServerMask (which I am reviewing for them)
A ton of ASP Components which I have purchased over the years.

So that means I can now focus my attention on creating software again instead of being a system admin. (Due to these server issues over the past few months I am now back to godly status as far as windows system administration goes.. not to mention I am now back up to speed on the latest processors and hardware)

So, getting back to ASP Photo Gallery...

I spent about 20 more hours this week on the new version of ASP Photo Gallery Pro.. I have another 40 or more to put into it as I have a lot I want to do.

I think it will be ready within the next three weeks. I know a lot of you have been waiting for something.

cwilliams38331.5907060185,

no, there is not not.

If you wanted to to that you would have to add some code to check their album count in the database and not allow them to make a new album if they were at the limit.

cwilliams38433.0233680556,

Ok nevermind that... i got by that wasn't paying attention...

The problem is even before this which i didn't know until now.

I placed the protect tag in a page i called members.aspx

When i go to this page is says ACCESS DENIED etc etc etc.

When i go to login to view this page i get the error..which i DIDNT know because i assumed it was working. This is the error im getting:

Server Error in '/MAP' Application.

The resource cannot be found.

Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

If you like it that way you should be able to have the same subcategory associated with the same category because they won't show up as duplicated, but as slighty differnt because it will say what category it is part of now also. So if you put it like you had before you called me It should work ok. Its still going to show each subcategory twice because they are part of different categories but at least it will show the category next to it. Its up to you..
