Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:37:08 PM

Seems as though changing the mail settings to "remote email server" did the trick.
,

I have noticed that during the file import, that some of the pictures get messed up.  I can import aroun 150 pictures into different albums, say 3 albums with 50 each.

I have noticed however that some of the get messed up.  What is happening is...the thumbnail will be correct, but after you click it the picture that shows up is one form a different album.

Any cure for this?

,



recently i've been getting a lot of unspecified errors.  i've been running aspbanner for about a year and a half now.  i don't know what would have caused all these problems.  also, for some reason it won't maintain my log-in, ever time i got from page to page or try to submit a form it asks me log-in again.

one last thing... if you did an upgrade from a previous version and didnt do the whole database field thing right during the upgrade process as stated here you could have trouble.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo174-1.htm

Meaning you should check your new database with the field structure of an unmodified new database and make sure all field names match up perfectly.. especially paying attention to the username and password fields

One last thing..
If you did an import via text file and didn't import all the fields ASPProtect needs you could possibly have problems as well.. though I don't think this relates to the timeout so it probably is not the case

,

Hallo,

Can I change the number of the access levels?

I want to have about 20 levels...

Wink

, Ok, set up a new web.config in root, with just the suggested code.

that worked to get this....


Configuration Error

Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

Source File: D:\hshome~aspnetprotect\web.config    Line: 411

any ideas?

The code is ok..

Your getting an error because no banners are showing up in that zones rotation.

run this directly in the browser and you will see that there are no banners being generated for that zone ID
http://www.poconocommuter.com/aspbanner/aspbanner_inc.asp?Ba nnerZone=6

As a matter of fact I dont see any banners showing up for any zones previous to 6 which tells me either you dont have valid banners in there or the application variable info got corrupted do to a server crash / power off or something.

I would check out this article for starters... aspprotect is very similar to asp photo gallery and so are a lot of the page names.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=49& PN=1

Jeromy, You should have access to that page.

,

I am testing this now and there is something wrong.

PayPal is hitting the ipn.asp but the database is not being updated.

I will figure it out shortly though and post the anwer here.

,
I had a question about user registration and how it works, mainly because I am having a problem.
 
When a user registers, with the email verification setting, I am assuming that there is supposed to be a new record created in the USERS table in the database. What could cause this not to happen?
 
Actually, in testing further I found that with the setting at Auto, Manual, or email, the record is not added to the table. And, if I am logged in as admin, the Add User button does not do anything.
 
I can however edit and delete user records...
 
Hmmm, adding a Category yields the same thing. And loggin in as a non-admin user still displays some of the menu items for admin, but then gives a page can not be found error if you click on one (ie, approve).
 
This looks like a db issue to me, I will have to try this with access and on a test server...
 
Any thoughts?

cwilliams38303.8507291667,

ya, thats basically what I was gonna do..

BTW.. if that other app is going crazy with an access database it could be the cause of all the slowdown with ASPProtect... what happens there is it is using so much database driver time that it robs other things that also access a database... so basically ASPProtect isn't asking its database for much but your other application and database are cripping that part of the system and causing it to run like crapola

If your other app is using a system dsn try changing it to use a dsn-less connection... it might actually help

,

I think I've got it to work somewhat.  I modified the 2checkout1 & 2 asp file to use and pass Product_id.  It now identifies the product correctly.  I'm good fo now. Thanks for the info though.

-Jason

New question...

When someone edits their personal information, such as address, is there any way to set it so that someone in the office can receive an e-mail noting the changes?

 

Thanks.

Some Screenshots












, [QUOTE=afifm]

I was actually able to do similar thing by allowing our dedicated search engine to access the site unchallanged.

<%
If Trim(Left(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT"),11)) = "MYPASSWORD" Then  
 SearchFlag = True
End If
 
If SearchFlag <> True Then
If Session("Access_Level") > CHECKFOR or Session("Access_Level") = "" Then 
%>
<!--#include virtual="/Auth/check_user_Code.asp" -->
<head>
<title>My Title</title>

</head>

<body>

My Protected stuff here

</body>

</html>

For this to work, the search engine must pass the PW to the web site. I just was not sure how to do the same thing with IPs. I will play with the code and see what happens. If it works, I will post it here to help others, if this is OK with forum rules.

Thanks,

Mo

[/QUOTE]

I just added couple of lines and it works fine

If (Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")) = "xxx.xx.xxx.xxx" Then 
 ' Session("PasswordAccess") = "Yes"
 SearchFlag = true
End If

,

noted.

1.) this has been explored and because of the way groups works is not feasable. Because us this I wrote code to allow you to view and sort all users for any group on the actual groups page. You pick a groups and then click the "Show Users" button

2.) noted

,

SQL Database Creation (NEW INSTALL)

If you are creating a new database do so using SQL enterprise manager.
Create a new database called whatever you like and keep all the default settings. If using an existing sql database skip that step.

Now open up SQL Query Analyzer

unzip the following sql script and open it in query analyser.
2005-02-20_132116_aspprotect_v7_sql_script.zip

VERY IMPORTANT
On the drop down box at the top right make sure your intended database is selected. Otherwise your changes may effect the wrong database in your SQL server.

Then load the script  into the Query Analyzer.  Click the green play button at the top. If everything goes well the response should read something like this.

******************************************************
(1 row(s) affected)
******************************************************

If so the tables have been created in your existing database.

Now make sure an existing or new SQL user has (public / datareader / datawriter) permissions for the new tables. You will be referencing this user in the asp code connection string so this user must be set up correctly. You may need your SQL server admins or hosting company to help you on this step as you may not have access to do this. You may not need to create a user and set permissions as the sql user you were logged in as to use query analyzer may by default get the correct permissions on anything you create.

Regardless, as you can see from this screenshot I made a SQL user called "aspprotectuser" and proceeded to set the permissions for that user. Under database access giving him (public,datareader, and datewriter permissions).


Now, in the ASP files provided with ASPProtect edit "dataconn_inc.asp" with a text editor and modify the connection string info. Be sure to change the info to match your server,username, and password.

Below is an example of valid connection string.

ConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=poseidon;Initial Catalog=aspprotect;User Id=aspprotectuser;Password=temp;"

The  "Data Source" setting is either the Network Name for the SQL Server or the IP Address. For local servers you can sometimes use an IP of "127.0.0.1" or the name of the local server.

"Initial Catalog" is the name of your database.

Now, in the ASP files provided with ASPProtect edit "dataconn_inc.asp" with a text editor and set the DatabaseType variable to SQL like so.

DatabaseType = "SQL"

cwilliams38403.6834953704,

I am using cdont to send email. what do i have to do send email to other display my full name instead  of email address. In other word I want to see first name last name  in their email client instead of email address.

thanks for your help

 

 

, We have upgraded to IIS 6, but as I recall  aspbanner continued to work fine for at least 3 months after the upgrade.  I would like to reinstall, but I cannot find the zip file.

Cookies are turned on in my browers, I've tried both Internet Explorer and FireFox, niether stay logged-in.

humm

expiration dates in the aspprotect system are not used at all when using paypal subscriptions.. all date handling is done on their end actually

and they of course send notices from their system to the user regarding their subscription and when it renews,cancels, etc etc

so I am pretty sure any errors with that would have more to do with the info you used for the subscription setup and possibly any paypal settings associated with it

its hard to say at this point

The smart thing to do I think.. would be to sign up someone using another PayPal account (your allowed 2)... and while doing it be very careful about the subscription setup data.. and then as soon as the subscription is created review all the info in the paypal system and see if the length of the subscription / expiration.. etc etc in the paypal system info looks right..

at least then you can begin to troubleshoot what is going on...

, Windows 2000 server you said ? Just checking on that one ?,

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, "I can login for the first time."

when you say that what exactly does that mean, because in this version you do not just log in for the 1st time.

What I am saying is there are steps where you run a special page to intially get into the system, then you setup a new user, then you make them an admin, and then you can log in as them.

You left all of that out of your story...

I really need all details in order to help.. is this an upgrade or a new install, etc etc etc

I would also advise very carefully comparing the fields in your sql database to the sql creation scripts to make sure all the field settings are correct.

Lastly, please tell me what name/email you ordered the product under so I can check your purchase.

Thanks,

sorry, I am guilty of being very tired and didnt read your message fully.

I know this forum area is called "database connection issues" but it is only meant for generic issues.

Issues specific to a particular application need to go in that applications area in the forum. It keeps the forums more organized and helps other people fnd help later on.

So please post in the correct area.
I will answer this question soon. I have to do something 1st though.

,

Chris, if there is no way to change this, I understand. I just though maybe it might be possible and I can't find out if i don't ask.

Thanks Chris.

Let me know.

Hello,

I do not really understand what you mean?
There are no country and city lists in ASPClassifieds.

cwilliams38391.0301388889,

When I add a user, I can not activat it.

It sends me back to log on and will now allow me to log in as admin???

I can restart the APP and log in as Admin, but the user I added

is still not activated??

My system will also not allow me to set the Stay Loged in FLag.

It just ignores it....

 

 

,

humm.. their FAQ is interesting...it looks like some sort of .NET configuration issue regarding security policies like you mentioned

Thats one of the big problems with hosting .NET. Some hosting companies just do do some oddball things. ASPProtect.NET works under default conditions but when hosts go around locking things down to the max there is bound to be trouble. This is the 1st I have heard of this.

Now, ASPProtect.NET does use the "System.Data.OleDb" and "System.Data.Odbc" which your host says they block because they require full trust.

All I can really say at the moment is go with a hosting company like www.alentus.com or www.maximumasp.com that does not restrict your .NET abilities so much.

In the meantime I am going to ask John Evans what he thinks about this.

,

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

 

,

expiration dates are not used in aspprotect's database when signing someone up using PayPal subscriptions because the PayPal system keeps track of all of that and will automatically send posts to the approtect system if a user needs to be deactivated for not paying or for whatever reason.

As you will notice in that thread about subscriptions the paypal signup data you use for the person determines their membership pricing and details..
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=186& ;PN=1

Basically the system takes care of everything.
PayPal takes care of everything.

However you want to look at it.

 

 

cwilliams38446.6609953704,

Ahhh....yes, I always forget about the cache.  That's exactly what it was. 

 I had made modifications to the import_pics.asp file, because I added more fields to the db, and made the import folder path dynamic, but I seem to have forgotten to add in the response.expires=0

Once I added this back in it has stopped messing up.

What was happening was, it wasn't overwriting the files, nor were they too big, but you would click on one thumbnail in an album(category) and it would display a picture from a totally different category.  It seems browser cache was the culprit, however.

Thanks for the quick reply, great product tooo!!!

Why all the pages at the directory .../password_admin/ are very slow to open online?

vaghelis38300.5280208333,

All fixed and working

 

Thanks

If you need to know how to enable them on your test server.

, Say, is it possible to get something to whack every totally inactive account? Preferably joke ones that nobody every actually logged on with.

I'd want to have it delete the account if the following conditions were met:

1. Active = NO
2. Counter < 1 or is a null value
3. Access <1 or is a null value (some people may have logged on and let their accounts expire, so they may want to log back in again with the same info)

I suppose an advanced version of a mass delete tool would allow the admin to select different parameters, but there would DEFINITELY need to be a "Are you sure? REALLY REALLY SURE???" step in there to make sure you didn't toast your database without being stupid twice in a row.

If I knew ASP code, I'd write it myself. I don't, so I make a pitch for a new feature...
cwilliams38456.0980671296,

its a text file   you just edit it with notepad..  if ya mess it up ya put an original copy back in

no biggie either way

jump in there..

I just showed ya exactly what to change.. its a no brainer man
This is simple source code. It's meant to be edited and hacked.

The only reason I warn you is so you can't blame me later on if it effects something

I am just trying to help


If ya dont like that solution why not just use periods for the first name field.. or a dash or something... then nobody will really see it

or maybe store the company name in the first_name field

seems like clever things to try without changing the code..

good luck...

cwilliams38326.870474537,
  • What kind of encryption do you use with version 7?
  • If I purchase version 7 and use it on my site with a new SQL database then migrate the old records from version 6 so I can by-pass the issue with my home-grown Base 64 encryption, do you forsee other issues with the upgrade?
,

Sounds great, Sold!

Thanks Christopher!

,

Is it possible to set the user account time limits when they register? I am using email verification and am trying to have their accout expire 32 days after their initial login.

Also I have an issue with the email notification not notifying me when a new user logs in. It does a beautiful job notifying the new user.  I do not understand why my server will send to one and not the other, I ahve searched the links but none seem to answer this.

Thank you for your help and insight
