Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:51:32 PM

IT worked just as cwilliams said. I did see the IP address being stored in the table but it didn't dawn on me that it was tied in to the view count, I tried it from a different IP address and it worked great .

Good coding Christopher

Thanks

John

,

all I can say is try other things...  like

mail.yoursite.com

or

smtp.yoursite.com

etc etc etc

replacing yoursite with the name of your domain of course


the settings for sending email via ASP are no different then the settings you would use in outlook or something... except sometimes on the server level localhost works as the email server because they set it up to allow that

and of course those 3rd party emailing components need to actually be installed on the server

,



Hi,

That is not enough to go on. I need details in order to help.

,

Christopher
We are actually having a lot of problems with this software.

Apart from the above problem of the email not being in the database as details above we also do not get any reply emails from any forms, the mass email button does not appear and the forgotten password does not send emails either.

We have CDONTS Version: 2.80 Installed as the email system, this is operational on the server. I have tested this with server_info.asp to check.

I can email you direct any other information you may need.

Regards

, Has this been resolved ?, Ok, for starters what is the real error ? Please read this.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo11-1.htm

2nd I always recommend using CDOSYS before any other email component. All servers have it running by default and ASPProtect supports some a html editor if you use that component. I would give that a try as well. It's the best emailing option.
, MSACCESS or SQL server ?,

Your SQL statement to the database is the key.

You want to change the sortby hyperlink on that page so that it will in turn change the dynamic sql statement to sort the way you want

Find

?SORTBY=Date_Created

change it to

?SORTBY=Date_Created+ASC

or maybe

?SORTBY=Date_Created+DESC


One of them is the default anyway, but I cant remember which is which off hand so just try them both till you get the desired result

 

near the top you can also change the default sortby when thet page is loaded

SORTBY = Request("SORTBY")
If SORTBY = "" Then
 SORTBY = "Name"
End If

there you would use a space though.. not a "+" sign when adding the ASC or DESC

The + sign is only used in the hyperlinks because it means a space for browsers that can't deal with spaces in links

cwilliams38406.6011458333,

[QUOTE=cwilliams]I would like to delete the SQL tables and set them up from scratch using enterprise manager and sql query manager and see what happens

If that is ok with you let me know.

Something is wrong like I said...  almost seems like the database is caching old password info from the field.[/QUOTE]

Sure go ahead

, This is the error that I am getting when I try to add a banner...

[code]Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e09'

EXECUTE permission denied on object 'sp_ASPBanner_GetZones', database
'aspbanner', owner 'dbo'.

/aspbanner/appinfo_inc.asp, line 67[/code]

also, when i go to the banners tab i see this in the banner list...

[code](3 Banners Found)

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e14'

Line 1: Incorrect syntax near '='.

/aspbanner/banners.asp, line 306[/code]

Help., When a logged in user with specific group rights tries to look at a page that has different group membership requirements the Login screen comes up giving them an opportunity to login with different rights to view the page.  If you log in again with your current user name the same login screen returns with the added words something to the effect of "Access Denied, you dont have group rights to this page...".

The only way to get back to the previous page is to hit the back button on the browser (there is not a back button on the denied page). 

I would really rather not even present the "login again" screen to a user but just have a custom page that says "access denied" of my own design with a back button on it.  Is this an option provided for in ASPProtect currently?  I did not see it in the admin section settings tab.  Is there a separate "login again" asp file that is being used for this group access deny message that I could alter, or does it always have to be the login asp file?
Or would this require me modifying the check_user_inc.asp file around line 356 to change this behavior (I don't want to screw up any other stuff though...).

Thanks!!

Oh, PS.  just a quick check...it looks like if a user is an "admin" he automatically gets to see all group pages regardless of which set of group numbers are assigned in his user account...is that right?





, I posted this in the wrong forum. Sorry.

I have installed ASPProtect on a client's website and I have been notified that some of their customers have been unable to login to the protected pages.

On testing it seems that the issues seem to be related to how cookies are being stored by IE 6.

ASPProtect is being used to protect particular template files within a Content Mangement System. 90% of the time it is working fine but on the odd occassion particular cutomers are unabe to login.

After quite a bit of testing I have managed to find the scenario in which it starts to have problems and was hoping you may be able to provide a solution.

If a customer enters the wrong password, then reenters the correct username and password, they receive a message "template can not be found" from the Content Management System. This message is generated when a url is entered that contains a link to a template file that does not exist. In this case the template does exist. If I remove the ASPProtect code the page opens without error.

Everytime they re-enter the details they receive the same message.

If they close down the browser and then reenter the correct details in some instances the page will open correctly.

More often than not, they have to delete cookies and temporary files and  close the browser. This seems to fix the problem again for most users. For users who's web access is heavily cached by an internal server, even this does not work.

Have you come across this problem before and can you suggest a remedy.

If you can email me privately I can give you the URL and access codes.

Thanks,

Stuart ,

It a generic error that means something is wrong with your data connection.

, and when I go to your now.. its very fast again..,

pretty clever...

If anyone is interested in what the Mod function actually does this article explains it nicely. They even use it for the same purpose in the examples.

cwilliams38210.6791898148,

When did you download the ASPProtect Version 7 zip file ?

what did you enter as a wrong password to make that happen ?

does it it do it when other wrong passwords are entered ?

 

cwilliams38452.722037037,

Hi, its just not something i can suppport as I do not support custmizations to the code epecially when dealing with an image component that is not supported by the application.

Sorry, its something you have to figure out. Bascially I would suggest looking at the existing asp image resizing code and using that as a guide.

Have you considered just buying a license of ASPImage and asking the host if they will install it after you purchase it. It sounds like it may save you a lot of time.

If you are ever looking for a good host for ASP. www.alentus.com is one of the best. There 9.95 plan gives you access to 3000.00 of commercial quaility asp components also which is nice.

After turning off the friendly errors, here is the detail.

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0131'
Disallowed Parent Path

/users/register.asp, line 16
The Include file '../dataconn_inc.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.

ANSWER:

lancem38310.6408101852,

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.

,

how about translating the error to english..

Looks to me off hand that it would have something to do with the SQL server itself not being run in an english lcid/format and causing some sort of date issue.

I would also suggest you start off with a brand new blank SQL ASPBanner database and make sure that works before you attemp t to import any data into it.

, Actually this was rather easy to fix.  Once you restrict the permissions on the folder, open up IIS admin. Goto the selected folder, and right click/properties.  Once there you modify directory listing and add defauly.asp to documents.  This will provide an automatic load with you enter in the unmask route.  ,

See, and that's what I thought.  What's interesting is that if I call either an aspx page or an asp page in the iframe tag, it asks me if I want to open the page, it doesn't display it.  I'm using IE6 so there's not problem with the support for the tag.

I'll keep looking to find out what's going on. I think the iframe method might work best.

JDooley

, ok, so from your PM Iknow you are using SQL server with IIS5.
You say you created the SQL database using the provided scripts and  that is good.

What is going on may just be a weird odbc issue that sometimes happens on IIS5 when using SQL server and I have an idea on how to remedy it.

Edit the "config_inc.asp" with notepad.

Change

If  Application("SERVER_SOFTWARE") = "" Then
 Application("SERVER_SOFTWARE") = Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_SOFTWARE")
End If


To

Application("SERVER_SOFTWARE") = "iis/6"

And lets see if that helps the situation.

it will change some SQL String query values in the application from "-1" to "1"

either should always work but under certain scenariois only one or the other works,

Not sure because of the nature of the javascript method

 

for starters tighten up the html around the banner call

 

change

 

<tr>
<td width="460" height="60" align="center" valign="middle" class="imagead">
<!------- ASPBanner Ad code ------------->
<script language="JavaScript">
var code = '';
var now = new Date();
var nIndex = now.getTime();
document.write('<s' + 'cript src=" http://www.nababaseball.com/aspbannernet/aspbanner/injectban ner.aspx?BannerZone=1&nocache=' + nIndex + '">');
document.write('</' + 's' + 'cript>');
</script>
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(jscode);</script >

</td>

 

to

 

<tr>
<td width="460" height="60" align="center" valign="middle" class="imagead">
<script language="JavaScript">
var code = '';
var now = new Date();
var nIndex = now.getTime();
document.write('<s' + 'cript src=" http://www.nababaseball.com/aspbannernet/aspbanner/injectban ner.aspx?BannerZone=1&nocache=' + nIndex + '">');
document.write('</' + 's' + 'cript>');
</script>
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(jscode);</script >
</td>

 

 

If that doesn't help I would suggest using the ASP 3.0 version of ASPBanner. It can serve banners to a any type of page extension and it runs just as well as the .NET version. There is a new iframe method for calling banners that you can try instead of the javascript. The iframe method is explained in the ASPBanner Unlimited section of the forum.

cwilliams38150.6443634259,

it is an email server/setting issue most likely

your email server probably requires outgoing authentication or something like that and that is why internal emails can be sent to but nothing else

its something along those lines

this will help you see the real error instead of the generic 500
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo11-1.htm

,

so, on control_pics.asp where you see

<% =TempDesc %>

you could try doing this instead

<% =Replace(TempDesc,"&nbsp","") %>

 

 

,

I have narrowed it down.  The ../ for includes will not work with .asp files but will work in .shtml files.

any ideas?

, FYI. There is a typo in the upgrade (6.0 to 7.0) instructions. It specifies adding a field named "passwords". Should be "password".,

umm.. rename the pages to ".asp"

After all these are ASP scripts we are dealing with and the product is called ASPProtect.

The web site says it is used to protect ".asp" pages

And the directions tell you to put the protection code on ".asp" pages.

ASP can not run in ".html" pages

If you do not know basic things like this you should really learn the basics of ASP before you try to use the application. I would suggest a good book or two. ASPProtect is for people that have at least some experience with Active Server Pages.

, OK, so I misread the instructions. Wouldn't have been the first time that happened...  but I just had an account get created, guy then paid, and... no activation. I had to go in the next day and do that by hand. What should I do to look for troubleshooting on the issue? I've got all the default directories set up and all the files where they should be. What next? , question 2 is answered best here

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=319&KW =paypal

Ok, got it.  Didn't know if there was something already set up for this that I was missing.


>>I should also mention that the paypals scenarios used in ASPProtect can not be tested using PayPal's sandbox.

Ok.  Thanks.


>>Also test using two real PayPal accounts and on a live setup. (You'll allowed two paypal accounts) then you can log into the other and refund the transctions and of course it makes sense to use low amount like 1 cent and what not.

Yeah, been messing around with that.  Got everything going except the return page which I can't do until the site is live. 


>>Also, I'd love to see what you came up with with the integration. I have been working on it here as well and took it in a different direction as I plan to sell directions for it as an add-on for aspprotect.

Ok.  Will email you with a username and password for access to the site once it's live. 

Sounds like a great add-on for ASPProtect!

Thanks!
Michelle

 


, Yes, you are right.  That was the problem.  Sorry  

Cheers
Roy
, After you click the link in the confirmation e-mail you are directed to the Thank you page.  Right above is a sign in link.  When I click this I get that funky error message.

I am trying to integrate  the scripts with the look of my site,  if that is what you mean by changing things around too much.  But, I don't think I have done anything out of the ordinary.

Cheers,
Roy
, Windows 2000 server you said ? Just checking on that one ?, They really have do not have anything  to do with each other as far as code and numbering goes, but I really do not fully understand your question or where you are going with this.  (the part about the user setup ?)

Groups are more powerful than access levels and are meant to replace them. Access Levels are only there for backward compatibilty with older versions. , Hello dear Chris

I can login for the first time. I exit from the browser and then I cannot login again. This happens for every user.
I noticed that the values in the fields "Login_limit" and "Active" in the ASPP_Users table in the SQL changed to NULL and 0 when login and remained in those values after close the browser.
If manually I change the values it is ok but the problem repeated.
Thank you in advance.
,

Just to put an end to this thread here is the solution for anyone reading.

The permissions were ok.

The data connection string never got edited in the "dataconn_inc.asp" file so it was invalid the whole time.

Once that was corrected the application ran.

So really this whole thread was over not following the directions and not editing the data connection string... 

 

,

I hear ya.. problem is it just does not fit into the banner rotation logic.

I know it sounds like a simple thing, but it is not because ASPBanner does it's rotation logic in a totolly unique way that no other system I know of does. It basically does everything in memory.

I just don't see anyway to do add what you are asking about without totolly re-writing how it works. The system would have to rely totally on complex (SQL queries / stored procedures) to do the banner rotation like every other poorly performing system out there.

It's really hard to explain, but I just no way I see to add it to the high performance application variable banner logic.  If I changed the system to not use those application variables there would be a tremendous performance loss because the database would be doing about 90% more work than it currently does.

As I have said before sacrificing performance is just not something I am willing to do.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo144-1.htm

I built ASPBanner for performance and speed and that has always been it's main intention.

I leave the bloated features to the competition. If I lose sales because of it that is just unfortunate. I want the best performing system. The system I can be proud of. The system that can handle millions of impressions per day under a MSSQL or MYSQL installation and not even flinch. That is what ASPBanner is all about.

The other thing is pricing. The price is kept low partically because the feature set is low.

Maybe someday there will be a version with more features and less performace. I really do not know. Right now it's just not something I plan on doing.

,

The way the application ships there are no password confirmation areas anywhere ? Please be more specific as to what you have done and if any mods are involved ?

If you are talking about one of the MODS please realize they are not supported. http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo459-1.htm

Even though they are not supported I look them over pretty closely and I know of no issue like you mentioned so I would suggest re-downloading the MOD. Perhaps you got a corrupt download or file.

,

Hello,

Yes, that is how it works. Unless you make modifications to the code there is no way to easily do what you are talking about.

If you design the site to be intelligent that scenario should never happen.

For example.. you should only be offering links to pages that the current logged in user has access to. You do this by checking the session variables and with simple if-else logic around your html links.

It requires some work but if you dont give them links to pages they dont have access to what you are talking about will not happen.

Here are some simple examples.

Here is an example using access levels.

<%
If Session("Access_Level") = "1"  Then
' show links to pages that allow access level 1
End If
%>

And one for groups..

<%
If Instr(Session("Groups"),"*6*") or Instr(Session("Groups"),"*7*") Then
' show links to pages that allow groups 6 and 7
End If
%>
