Does ASPProtect 7 work with SQL 2005?,

Actually, your whole site is like that.

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

You should definetly fix that..
I can't help ya with it though. You'll have to figure it out.

I know ya can do it...

later

Than you 

I'm happy after changing to XML parser for two of the ads. Later I'll change the other codes to XML, never to use iframe again!

,

Parent paths being enabled on the server is a requirement of the application. That error means just what it says.

you can change all the server side includes to virtual includes that will work or you can ask you host to enable parent paths.. those are the options

I have a solution for asp already but thanks anyway. Is there a good book or other learning tool I can purchase that you might know about? I would know where to start about how create a timed subscription in .NET.

, Oh, I just remembered something..
It's been a while since I did this... :)

Nevermind what I said above as that is a different sort of "debug"


When you want to debug like your talking about find this section in the "web.config"

<compilation defaultLanguage="vb" debug="false" />

change it to this

<compilation defaultLanguage="vb" debug="true" />

When you run the code in a production environment change it back though

You really should check out the documentation regarding the config file before you go any farther.

If the server supports ASP.NET you do not have to spend any money to have real fast loading thumbnails.


Also, licenses of ASPImage only cost 69.95 and regardless any quality host supporting ASP should have one of the 3 supported resizing components installed or else you should consider a better host like www.alentus.com Places like that have good hosting prices and give you access to 3000.00 worth of 3rd party asp components.

 

,

I am also getting the "Unspecified Error" message.  I just transferred my site to IIS 5.0 and I get that error now.  However it does not happen everytime.  I can click on a page and it opens fine and then I hit refresh in the browser and I get the "Unspecified Error" message.  What could be causing this?

 

 

,

I got ya. Well hey, that's what's great about the iframe right?

,

That carrot doesn't really exist in the file, so I'm not sure.

I did download and place the ASPTEST file in www.drsweisberg.com/asptest and when I try to load the 2 pages it fails to load.  I have another site on the same server and I uploaded the same exact set of files and the asp pages load.  www.klarman.com/asptest

http://www.drsweisberg.com/asptest/server_info.asp

http://www.klarman.com/asptest/server_info.asp

This is how I set the connection:

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\klarman\asptest\_database\asptest.m db;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\drsweisberg\asptest\_database\aspte st.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

,

I am up to speed on how it works. My goal was to not have just a link to a protected page- so that when a user clicks it they get the "access denied" screen and then have to log in. My goal was to avoid that if possible by having them log in and then redirected to the protected page.

So this isnt possible? The only way for it to work is for a user to click a link to the protected page, get the denied screen, then login and be redirected?

Or is there another way..?

I made my point by rebuttling your "cafepress" with agreeing "YES" that is what i want... now you are changing this around on me. I dont think i can be ANY clearer in what i intend to do. It is extremely clear and i am not sure why its becoming more than it should be. I just want the user to be able to log in from ANY PAGE ON THE WEBSITE AND THEN BE REDIRECTED TO THE PROTECTED PAGE IF THE HAVE THE PROPER CREDENTIALS. It would be nice if this software gave an error message when an incorrect username/password was entered instead of simply refreshing the screen.

,

Its still not there as labeled 'internet guest'.  There's a 'guest' and a host of others.  Is there a way to identify it as the proper guest account to use with ASPProtect?

Also, looking through support documentation, I see other possibilities it could be (http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/permissions.asp).  Is there a way of telling which the problem is and whether we use a dsn connection or not?

The error we are getting is

 Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x1340 Thread 0x17a4 DBC 0x162becc Jet'.

/aspprotect/scripts/populate_config_variables_inc.asp, line 11

, yea.. keep us posted... thats weird,

OK, thanks.

This user is talking about preparing more than 100 pics at a time for an album that already exists and doing it using linux.

I asked the user to post the code here because I think it is interesting and it may help someone who is working with the app.

This article is not for everyone for a few reasons.

1.) The application can already mass import pics on it's own. It does 100 pics pretty quickly on a decent server. The built in method also resizes pictures and make low res thumbnails should your server support a supported ASP image resizing component. The method above simply rename pictures in a folder so the application will see them as part of an album.

2.) We don't support or recommend that anyone sets the application to use more than 100 pics per album. It is just not tuned for that and there will be issues. Please dont ask me what they are as it is complicated and I am not sure/dont remember what they all are.

3.) Your going to have to be familiar with linux to use the code shown above.

cwilliams38210.5694444444,

Probably not... javascript calling complex javascript is not a good thing and is often a problem.

I would try one of the other methods such as the xml parser if possible.

, not anything built into the app... it would be done with client side javascript if you wanted to look into it...  my client side javascript skills are ziltch, like I mentioned are you by chance running something like Norton Antivirus Script Blocking ?? That can cause timeouts and all sorts of problems with ASP as can other software like it. ,

Hi Chris:

Is there a way I can include the username and password in the URL of a protected page to gain access to a that page without going through the log-in page?

I'm not quite sure what the syntax would be in the URL.

I dont know about your error on line 6 when uploading..

as far as the manaully edited import file not working I would really need to see it. There has to be somethin wrong with it's format.

I really need more information and possibly acess to the system to do some troubleshooting...

This is anot a feature anyone has ever had an issue like this with.

, I down loaded your latest ASPProtect.NET_v1.4 and now when i try to get in the admin area it won't let me in. The admin box is selected in the database under the admin user and i can update my user information (password and Address, not username). Is there something that was changed on this version or is it more likely user error on my part? What do you think i should try first?,

I am still a little confused... one thing I would like to mention is that the passwords in the aspprotect database are encrypted... meaning you cant just add a password to the user database by hand because it wont be the encrypted value and wont work.

It is something the application takes care of when you add a user via the web based interface.

You can however still add users manaully or with careful import/exporting... but you will have to use the existing password conversion technique which is covered at the end of our upgrade instructions in these forums.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo174-1.htm

Basically you want to add a field to the "ASPP_Users" table called "Old_Password" and that is where you enter the password in plain text. Then after you are finished adding users to the database manually you do this.

You want to run a special page via the browser.

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/convert_to_encrypted.asp


Which will convert the passwords to the encrypted value for you.
See the bottom of this thread for all the info on that.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo174-1.htm

,

I think I've found the problem..

The password "abcdefgh" works

The password "abcdefghi" does not

(username "ace45")

Passwords can obviously only contain up to and including 8 characters... By some coincidence I only used short passwords with MS Access.

 

, It is common when testing a site that this happens because of the nature of session variables.

Admins have access to EVERYTHING so it is very important when testing different user accounts that you specifically log out... and then close every single browser window before logging in as a different user. This is to ensure session info from the previous user does not overlap in any areas.
(The session variable for admin access being the main one)

Under normal circumstances a user would not log in with many different accounts on the same computer this this would only be a problem for a developer who is testing.

So make sure you go to the to log-off page and log off.. then close all browser windows.. then test another user.

If all this is not the case then something else is going on and I will need more information. I pretty much know the level checking code for ASPProtect Version 6 is correct as there has been no reason to change any of it in over a year. I would have heard reports of problems with it. , while technically that shouldnt be showing that with two slashes that is actually valid and will not effect whether that feature works or not.

so if you are getting an error that is not the reason.. as far as windows is concerned // is the same as slash in that scenario?

what is your error? I need details. Like some code and an error at a line number ?

99% of the time it is permissions and sometimes it is related to the filesystem object being disabled on the server or script blocking software such as norton antivirus ,

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.

, Along with being able to set an expiry date or number of impressions, is it possible to add another option for a banner to be "non-expiring"?

With our current ad software (which we are transferring all data from to ASPBanner), we run banners for both paid advertisers, and for our own services. The banners relating to our own services, we would like to set to "non-expiring" so they appear all the time. ,

Hi

I've tried almost anything here... I'm using an online SQL SERVER database with ASPProtect 7, and I can't login after my initial creation of the admin account.

It works fine with Access... I believe I have checked all the fields created by the sql statement (which was run with no errors),

What could be the problem here? could it be a problem that I run my local IIS against the online sql server?

sincerely,

Morten

, if you are talking about IPN subscriptions and how they work paypal has detailed manauls on their site.. if you are talking about asp.net in general there are probably a lot of good books..

the reason I said look at the aspprotect 7 code is cause the applications and database are very similar and the same techniques will apply for the most part as far as how the ipn subscription posts from paypal talk to the database and what happens during the various post events.. etc etc etc ,

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,

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



 

,

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?

 

, Thanks Chris,

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

cwilliams38300.5380092593,

a. Sorry for the missunderstanding

b . Im running XP pro and done what was explained

c. The iis stops responding - Till I make iisrest

thanks

Ran

, ok, now were getting somewhere

I didn't know you imported from another system,

chances are you are missing field information that an ASPProtect user requires.

Start off from scratch with a new aspprotect database... create a new user and look at the info that gets entered by default for every field in the database

make sure when you import a user that you mimic it all

dont import directly using access because the passwords will not get converted to encrypted versions of themselves correctly.. and the whole process will be usesless as no passwords will be correct

Use the import feature built into ASPProtect.. because it is smart enough to take the clear text passwords and encrypt them accordingly

if you want to know a correctly formatted import file needs to look like make one and check it out

do one user at a time and make sure you can log in to an example protected page till you get it right...

once you get that working do them all

Thats really the best advice I can give you. , [QUOTE=cwilliams]

Every application we sell that has a password on the database uses "temp"

Also, the password is in the connection string in the dataconn_inc.asp file.

After all, the ASP code needs to know the password just like anyone that wants to open the database would.

[/QUOTE]

That i have, my question revolves around the all the users and passwords that I in that database. I need to be able to export that list to word for a mail merge list, but when I do the passwords show up encrypted. I need to be able to get an unencypted list.

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

,

Hi Chris,

The hosting company has been doing some work apparently regarding the database connection issue. Still something is funky

When I type in www.vickerylightning.com/aspgallery/default.asp I get the custom 404 error page and I noticed that it is trying to open the following:

http://www.vickerylightning.com/skins/default/settings.asp

Is that what it is supposed to do?

Thanks!
Rhona, the rookie
