Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:44:09 PM

Hi,

I don't see any good reason to rename any of those files.

Changing them though may involve changes to the code recompiling, etc etc... it is not something I support.

,

It happens at least once per hour or every time a banner is edited in the system by the admin.

Changing its frequency would be somewhat complicated. You'll have to make changes to the code in a few places and you will effect performance adversely by doing it more often as it will mean a lot more database queries which defeats the purpose of doing it once per hour to conserve resources. The reason is when you change the frequency of that you also change the frequency of the entire banner application variable caching system. It difficult to explain but it unlike most banner systems out there it basically fetches banner rotation info every so often instead of every single time your page needs a banner. It stores this rotation and cycling information in ultra fast application variables. The docs actually go over a little bit of how that process actually functions under "using the system / Setting Up Banners
"

Its a customization I just can not support and I do not recommend doing, but if you really want to you should look at the "aspbanner_inc.asp" file

this is the part that makes it happen at least once per hour (requires visitors to your site to happen obviously)... you'd have to cleverly recode it to work slightly more often

' Checks the time the banner data was last updated and basically updates it if an hour or more has passed
If Cint(Application("BannersLastUpdated")) <> Cint(Hour(time)) Then
%>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="appinfo_inc.asp"-->
<%
End If


There may be more to changing this than that, but this is all I can tell you.

(Password_Email_Confirmation_Mod) for ASPProtect Version 7.x

This will change the basic registration pages so that the email address and password entered must be confirmed when signing up. This eliminates the auto generated password during signup.

Some may prefer it working this way.

Directions:
Back up your existing ASPProtect installation.

Copy the two new files into your "users" folder

"register.asp"
"add_new_account.asp"

2005-12-01_182201_Password_Email_Confirmation_Mod.zip

, 1st of all when I look at the site I see a lot of non US characters and I can see the regional settings of the site are foreign.

ASPClassifieds in only intended to run under US and Canadian regional settings as stated on the site.

Thus the BIG notice on the purchase page.
http://www.aspclassifieds.com/purchase.asp

It won't run right like that for a lot of reasons and it is not supported like that as that notice says.

The categories showing 0 is just one of the problems you will have.

If I help you fix this it will just lead to 4 more issues right after.

If you would like support with the classifieds application you need to run it on a server with US or Canadian regional settings like the site says. , Best setup I recomend is just setting up a rig and making a workgroup. No real reason for a production machine to have any access to internal security when you think about it.

classic asp should be pretty easy to move, just set up new webs and dump the scripts in there. If you have 2 machines its always easier to look at the one while your building the other. Basically copy the setup and tada... the only thing you might need to remeber is components (if your using any) and thats usually not a very big deal either.

Point sort of being at some point your going to have to change that thing around and while its no fun you have to imagine now is a better time to bite the bullet and get it set up the right way. Your alternative is to mess around for hours and hours praying that you change domain wide security to the point that running NET apps on that domain controller works. Personally I wouldnt sleep well knowing I had just messed around so bad with the OS that I had no clue what bugs and security holes I might have accidently opened in the process. I wont even get into the possible things that might stop working on the rest of the domain if you fiddle with accounts like "Network Service"

Oh and if thats not enough reason to make you think about it, consider how hard it will be to try and rember what you did at 2AM 6 months from now if that machine takes a dive or some critical update undoes what you changed.

I feel for you though, trust me we have all been down that road once or twice. Get some sleep and in the AM the task at hand wont seem nearly as bad. You live and you learn, and you will definatly be WAY better off making things right sooner than later

,

do you have the smtp part of iis installed on your machine

cdonts needs that

then again I am not sure you can even use cdonts on a xp box without making some changes...

cdonts has kinds died out and as of windows 2000 basically got replaces by cdosys

,

You should read my article on server side includes… the path to the include file must of course be adjusted depending on where in your web you are.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

You will also notice if you look at the provided example pages that the include paths have been adjusted to make sense.

If it is 2 directories down it should probably look different..

example:)   "../../checkuser_inc.asp"

It’s weird that if you are not getting an error because if the path to the server side include is wrong you should get a nasty server error.

Also..

The ASPProtect system and any pages it protects must also be part of the same Application in IIS. It’s the nature of forms based authentication. Do a google search if you are not sure what an application is in IIS.

Lasty…. If you are logged in at the time

Whether your current session at the site is still active… or you have the cookie set to remember you.

Well, nothing will happen… cause your already logged in and you will just see the page as normal.

Perhaps things are working and you just don’t understand that part ?

You need to go to the log off page.. log off… then close all instances of the web browser windows..

Then come back to the site… then see if it prompts you to log in.

cwilliams38228.9837152778,

The main users screen... the 1st screen you see when you go to the admin area..  where you email an individual user..

The settings I am referring to being the various emailing settings on the settings screen, The settings you showed me.

As for emailing via a remote server over dsl. It may not be working because the ISP's block the port (25) to stop people from running email servers over their dsl.

Your POP3 works because POP3 uses port 110.

If you want to send emails from your local server on your dsl you should probably install the SMTP service of IIS if you have not and send emails using that with CDOSYS. Either that or get a commerical DSL account with a static IP that allows for running email servers.

, ok.. glad it is doing it's thing,

I downloaded v7 3/7/2005

 

I entered a password that was supposed to be all caps with only first letter caps. 

 

it is odd, if I go to other user and enter wrong password that does not come up.  it apprpriately goes to a screen that says Access Denied.

thx

,

That is by design, removing and deleting are two different things as far as the classifieds system goes.

A regular user can only remove an ad from the category index. (which makes the ad inactive)

An admin however can truly delete an ad from the system.

,

Has any one used the aspmail function to send emails from within your site? If so what did you use as the AspMail_Host string in the connections database?

thank you

, ok, that is what you are suppose to do... not having that path info set can cause all sorts of trouble.,

Anyway,

How busy your site is actually won't be the only factor. Really the application should not restart unless something happens. If the IIS application is reseting alot it could very well be the ISP restarting the server or doing IISRESETS as well or other sites on the server causing the application pools to restart.. etc etc etc  Quality ASP hosting is important. Regardless your hosting company most likely will not admit to anything be out of the ordinary.

As far as that directory deleting itself on you.. I doubt they will have an answer for that one. All I can tell for sure is I didn't put any code to delete it in there.

,

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

, I have been told it does as I got about 5 people or so who upgraded but I have not used SQL 2005 yet. I'll order a copy.,

Hey, I run a business and I will not have things like that mentioned in these forums.

,

I getting a strange error with ASPProtect.

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

Unclosed quotation mark before the character string '¾_^Ö'.

/aspprotect/check_user_inc.asp, line 114

If I check the database directly "¾_^Ö" is the exact string for the password.

Any Ideas

Hello Chris,

I have switched to Alentus and have the permissions set correctly and Parent paths turned on.  I cannot figure out how to connect to the database.  Should I have the database in the aspprotect/data/database folder, or in the data folder that Alentus has in my root directory?  once that is determined, how do I decide what the path to that database is?  I have tried many things, but this is what the setup page tells me to enter in the data_conn file DBQ=D:\Websites\www.mysite.com\aspprotect\data\database\ASPP rotect_access2002.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp

Thank You

Hi,

Actually that is not a feature at this time. Only the admin can add an image for user. If you look at the code for that you could adapt it for individual user use fairly easily provided you are decent with ASP.

That feature will probably be added some day, but there was no time to add it to into the current version and I can not give you a time on when it will be added. The complicated part is making some sort of approval process in case a user adds something undesirable and also limited file sizes which is hard to do without somesort of 3rd party uplaod component being involved.

Hello,
 
As I have my site hosted by a web hosting company (1and1.com), I want to make sure the ASP Photo Gallery software runs correctly before I buy. I am not sure about whether or not they support parent paths because I can find nothing in the online faqs. But, I have two other ASP apps (Forum and News from Web Wiz) running on the site, both connecting to Access databases. I remember having problems initially setting these up because I kept trying to use paths like ../db/wwforum.mdb like I would normally do when referencing images or pages in other folders.
 
Anyway, here are the database connection strings for the two apps. The first is for the Forum, which is at /forum/common.asp connecting to a database in /db/wwForum.mdb. The second is for the News, at /news/common.asp accessing /db/news.mdb.
 
'Virtual path to database
 strDbPathAndName = Server.MapPath("/db/wwForum.mdb")
 
'Database connection info and driver
strCon = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("/db/news.mdb")
 
Thanks for your help, hopefully I'll be setting up my new galleries this weekend!

,

can add photo album but after i upload a pic, nothing shows.

where do i look to research why pics aren't showing in the albums

,

yeah.. thats an old graphic probably only seen in a few places.

it is not on the main site
http://www.cjwsoft.com/
or here
http://www.aspprotect.com/
or here
http://www.aspbanner.com/
or here
http://www.aspclassifieds.com/
or here
http://www.aspphotogallery.com/

but I am sure there are a couple of pages left over still using it like the aspvendor and asplistings pages.. etc    I am aware of it, just been too busy to go change them and I didn't consider it a big deal

2003 servers are NT based anyway

, Actually quite well.  I have this problem worked out and it actually isn't to bad.  But  now I am getting some strange error messages.  I will start another post.

Cheers
Roy
,

Humm, Did you make any changes to the code ?
Solid Black is not the default so it must have changed at least once.

Otherwise it might be some sort of application variable problem.
I would make sure the web is and "application" in the IIS console.

 

, That is by design and how it is designed to function.

There is no easy way to do what you are asking about.

Can it be done ?, sure!!

But it is a lot of custom coding to sort it all out and not something we support.

If I were you I would simply edit the login box screen to show some hyperlinks and options should a person need to use them. ,

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....

, "get_me_in.asp" just hangs during a new install. Nothing happens no matter how long you wait and IIS may temporarily hang up as well.

You may very well be running something like norton antivirus with norton script blocker on your server? Or something similar?

It can cause issues when ASP uses the filesystem object and cause never ending page hangs like you are having.

Read this..
http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2180, Say, I just thought of one last thing.

Your not by any chance running something like norton antivirus with norton script blocker on that server are you ?

It can cause issues when ASP uses the filesystem object and cause never ending page hangs like you are having.

There are other apps as well that can cause it to hang.

http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2180

And ASPProtect does use the filesystem object.,

One last thing..

This is bad

http://www.bones.myftpsite.net/rfamilystuff/pictures/

there are .asp files in there people can run that you dont want people running..

u should delete the asp files in there or turn off directory listing...

take care,

CJW

Also, I found this page which specifically talks about hidden IPN form values to change currencies

https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/acc/ipn-info

mc_currency For payment IPNs, this is the currency of the payment. For non-payment subscription IPNs, this is the currency of the subscription.
"USD" The currency of the payment is U.S. Dollars.
"CAD" The currency of the payment is Canadian Dollars.
"GBP" The currency of the payment is Pounds Sterling.
"EUR" The currency of the payment is Euros.
"JPY" The currency of the payment is Yen.

cwilliams38459.9616087963,

It turns out that I never enabled ASP.net on the site. After doing that the skins work much better. I'll have to poke around and see what other functionality is now available.

Thanks!

Al

, it probably means the page you are trying to protect is (not in an iis application or not in the same iis application) which it needs to be

for a situation like using ASPProtect you really want your root of your virtual directory set up as one big application in IIS. (after you inquired about it your hosting company probably went and set the ASPProtect folder as an application in IIS which means any pages you protect need to be in there as well. (truth is they should have had your entire web starting from the root set as one in the 1st place..... its standard practice for any experienced hosting company) cwilliams38456.9306828704,

Chris -

Sorry, I am looking at your code on view_item.asp and I have noticed that you are calling 3 variable; start_date, end_date, and image_url that do not exist in the databases that you provided.  Do I have the updated package for ASPVendor?

 

,

if you use either of those options the mail server info you use must of course be valid (example: mail.somesite.com) your host can provide that info

you should also make sure your sending the emails using an account at your email server.. not some other email you have


other than that if it does not send emails it could be because your hosting company may require authentication for outgoing emails...

ask them ...

if that is the case the version of ASPBanner you have does not support sending email that way and you would need to add the necessary code to any places that send email... in order for emailing to work

,

Hi, I have not gotten anything from you about it.

click on the PM button below and send it that way through the forums.

Thanks

,

I noticed that is grabbing the wrong URL for some reason. Even when i mouse over the URL its somehow getting the users sub directory. How.. i dont know... when i erase that users in the url it works perfectly.

I am looking at the code in the .vb file and i dont see anything that could be causing it to do that... but then again i am no programmer LOL

Its obviously kicking in that users subdirectory somehow... what are your thoughts?

,

well, you should probably be backing up the SQL database on a regular basis. That is between you and hosting company. If they let you connect via SQL Enterprise Manager you can do backups on your own.

As far as the aspprotect files and folders go back them up somewhere, and then only worry about backing them up again if you change some of the files.

That's really all there is to it. None of the ASPProtect files change on their own except the generated log files that you may or may not care about backing up.

I mean the important thing is the Database, and then of course any your own .asp pages that you protected as well as any custimizations you made to the users area or your site...

,

here ya go

, Chris, and all who read this post.

Don't run away!
I believe that perhaps I gave Chris good cause for this post to be created. But dont fear.

When it comes to most languages I am a newbie, let alone ASP.NET. I did not choose to have an application for my site to be built in ASP.NET. However it was and I had paid for that program and it needed protecting!

Now I did have a few problems, however NONE were with ASPProtect.NET. It is brilliant. NONE were with Chris and the support he provides. I believe he must work 24/7 judging by the speed of replies and the timezone differences.

In the end all the problems were down to MY typos and a web host who insisted that any problem was a conflict and not their server set-up.(which it was!)

Having eliminated the typo and changed web provider to a less arrogant company. ASPProtect.NET installed and ran out of the box. Truely impressive.

As a newbie it is not something I would like to do again. But with help from Chris and from a friend with ASP.NET knowledge any issues were very quickly resolved.

An A+ recommendation for CJWSoft. I love it!
