Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:51:26 PM

thats because you can not have exchange server running at the same time as the windows IIS virtual smtp server..

they clash with one another... and thats why the emails never get picked up by the iis stmp server

you have to send the emails another way like using a true remote mail server..  I am not sure but if your exchange server can do pop 3 you can probably use that that way

you may be able to change the pickup directory that cdosys uses under the virtual SMTP scenario, but I am not sure if that will work with exchange picking it up, but maybe it will work ok because you said it does when you paste them in there manually.. I do not really know.. you'd have to try it and edit the email sub routine to use that pickup path

"scripts/emailing_subs_inc.asp" is where you could try editing that path

,

Editing the look of the login page.

In this version editing the look of the login page is very easy.
You can make this login page look exactly like you web site if you like.

You want to edit the "scripts/login_form_inc.asp" file.

It can be edited with any editor as long as the existing bits of server side code in it and the login form remain in tact.

The best thing to do is back it up before you start editing it.
Then if you goof it up you can revert back to the original.

If you edit this page with FrontPage enable the "show all" feature.
Its the little PIE sign in your icons. It will show the server side code as yellow things on the screen so you know where they are and can be careful not to delete them.

Sorry, there is no option for that.

I'll take it into consideration, but the way the banner rotation logic works would make adding such an option very complicated.

Just give it  an expiration date way into the future if you do not want an ad to expire anytime soon.

I usually just make all my ads expire in like 2020 or something like that since I don't want them to stop running either on some of my sites.

cwilliams38247.1116319444, ok, glad it is working, sounds like the data/export folde does not have permissions,

Right,  I've done that.  My concern is that it will time out again while I'm trying to import the file.

The import/export manager does not show up under the users tab when I log in normally.  I have to pull up the page in frontpage and then preview it a browser to get it to show.

, No, Unfortunately.
I have seen your messages.
I have not edited the code at all.
Tomorrow I will install the sql database again from your script as I did before and I will try again. I will send all the details.
Thank you again.
, YAY FOR ASPPROTECT 7!!!

Now I need to know... how can I automate PayPal subscriptions and purchases? I'd like it so that once PayPal gets its money, my accounts get marked active.

Now, the documentation on this site currently says, to point the IPN post action to a null page. Yet, I see an IPN.asp in my files for PayPal subs and PayPal purchases...  Looking over the code there, I see actions to make accounts active and stuff like that. Is the page ready for prime time, or should I hold off for a new version?
cwilliams38421.7014814815,

Does emailing work under the simplest scenario ? (directly from the users screen)

Thats the way to test it..

All that error means is whatever reason the settings you have chosen are not working. It could be the server. It could be what you chosen. (and yes I realize your pop info from outlook should probably work with the settings you chose)

Whenever I do installs I often have to try 3-5 different emailing scenarios before I come across one that works.

Each time making some changes and sending out test emails from the users screen until I get somewhere. Often time getting a working example of how your Hosting Company wants you to send email from ASP is the info to get your hands on. (what method and settings)

In this case they may have blocked the usee of a remote server and want you to use some other settings for sending email from asp. A lot of times they put that info in their help system.

If I were you I would start by trying the other two CDOSYS options for starters, and then try the remote server option again but using "localhost" as the server, if none of those work consult your host for example code and settings to send email from asp. If you still have no luck I can help for sure.

Realize too when testing the emails may take a bit to arrive. A delay of sorts. Best to type in a quick note about which method you are trying in the email text. That way when you finally get one delivered you'll know which method worked.

,

it's ok

one step at a time and at each step testing things.. then when you mess something up you can figure it out a lot easier

cwilliams38456.1106018519,

Thought that was already done....

Back to the drawing board...

, do you have the url path to the registration page set correctly in the settings cause not having it there would do that ? ,

This is what "John Evans" of CJWSoft has to say on the matter...

"I think that’s pretty much impossible. If the server sees a .JPG or .JPEG extension why in the world would it go and try to read it or do anything with it.

I believe there may have been some issues with Outlook and Outlook express that made it look like a vbs script sent as an attachment was actually a JPG because someone found an exploit in those programs and it would appear as if double extension files were one thing when in fact they were not.

Having a real time virus scanner on the server (which any good host will) should also catch anything infected being built on the server drives as the file uploads. Always worked for me and I had a lot of people uploading ZIP files on winxptheme.com at one point. Many had viruses in them although I suspect it was totally innocent on the end users part. Some people didn’t even know they had a virus on their rig. 

Fact is anything is possible but I think chances of getting a virus or being hacked in some way from this sort of upload are really slim."

 

cwilliams38447.0602083333, 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. ,

How can I make so it goes to certain webpages if user enters valid username and password??

I suppose user enters its information on check_user_inc.asp page, and username and password are stored on SQL database.

Thanks

Dear Support Team

I have read and Installed your v8 banner software

exactly as explained on XP pro which contains other asp working app.

I have problems with the " Application " and " Session" in your scripts

things that make the iis fall dead.

also in the file asp _unlimited_config.asp

you have exlained that every thing must be kept without the "" marks.

well i get http 500 error cause of it.

 

Please advise

Thanks

Ran

 

 

, I really need more detailed information to say anything about it.

I would try different methods of calling banners as well to see if that helps., its no different than linking to an image or another page. you have to adjust the path to the include file based on what directory you are in.. or you get an error

This is noted in the admin area on the code generator page which also gives you 2 examples of ways of calling the server side include. (Virtual or File include)

These threads below are also full of info. I found them by doing a quick search and they should help you out as well.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=349&KW =The+include+file

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=303&KW =The+include+file

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=236&KW =The+include+file ,

After understanding how the count works i checked the IP in the db.  They are all set to the same IP (my web server) no matter what ip is doing the viewing.  This is probably due to my ISA2004 firewall that is posting the ip address of the web server with each log on.  So, can you help me with where the code would be to modify so the db does not get updated?  I risk the refresh problem, don't think it is an issue with me.

 

Thanks,

,

Well Chris:

I logged off too soon after your last response. Your last idea was the answer. I am running McAfee as my virus-scanner on the mail server I am running. There was a script inhibitor enabled as a worm detection function. When I disabled it, your software responded correctly. I guess I can do without that, although with everything thrown at the net these days, it makes me a little nervous.

Thanks

Thanks.

hi,

no.., not unless you come up with some clever way to handle it on your own
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=369&KW =https
read 2nd to last post

The way ASPProtect ships it is designed to either be in http:// the whole time or https:// the whole time.... (there curently is no solution from me allowing going from one to the other)

sorry

, ASPProtect 7 Customization Service

As some people seem to have a lot of trouble editing ASP code I am currently willing to consider doing ASP Programming custimization work to the registration pages/database as well as the admin area of ASPProtect Version 7.

things like drop down lists, yes/no fields, new database fields, edit screen additions... etc etc

things that might take an ASP novice forever but I could do in reasonable time.

PM me detailed specs on what you want and will then provide a quote if interested. I get paid via PayPal ahead of time and am charging 40/hour for my time which is a discounted rate. (partially since I am so familiar with the application and partially because you have made a purchase from CJWSoft)

So to be very clear...

You tell me exactly what you want in detail, If I agree and you like the price quote, I get paid, I write the code, you get the code, I fix any minor bugs or errors if I made if any, and everyone is happy. That's the deal.

Pain in the ass people or people not willing to spend money for quality work done quickly need not contact me. I get enough of that as it is and my time is valuable. I also may refuse a job if I don't have time or just don't want to do the work involved. Really how well you describe what you want and the intelligence level vibe I get from you has a lot to do with whether I will do the job or not.,

I have imported like 50,000 users into an access database when testing... it took like 4-5 minutes but worked..

course it really all depends on the setup how many you can get away with

something must still be wrong

have you tried just importing 1 or 2 users for troubleshooting sake ?

I would also recommend that after any timeout you reboot the server or at the very least do an "iisreset" to get things back to normal

, Has this been resolved ?,

I think you may be using old code where that was an issue... I am going to PM you the latest version..

to be safe upgrade all the ASP files except the dataconn_inc.asp files and your config_inc.asp files

"be real careful not to lose your current encryption keys in the "config_inc.asp" file or you will be in real trouble

You can use your existing database

 

,

Another good tip is to make a copy of the "password_admin/default.asp" named whatever you like..

"default2.asp" would work...

then maybe add a link to it from the header_inc.asp file

then you can modify that one all you want and your will still have the original around.



That concept works for a lot of things.. for example you could make a copy of the "users" folder and call it "users2"  granted a few paths might need to be changed here and there but really not a lot. (how do you think the paypal signup folders were created, they started as a copy of the "users" folder of course)

You can even make a copy of the "check_users_inc,asp" file if you like. Then make a copy of the "scripts/login_form_inc.asp" file... then make your new "check_user_inc.asp" file reference it.

Then you can password protect pages using different versions of the "check_user_inc.asp" file. Why ? well maybe you want different looking logn forms for different parts of your website or you want to make a lot of changes to the "check_user_inc.asp" file and want to leave the original alone.

The sky is the limit really. When it comes down to it besides the actual guts of the "check_user_inc.asp" file ASPProtect is nothing but html tags and chunks of simple server side code that produce more html dynamically. What your browser ends up with is basic html. (some client side javascript in certain cases, but that is pretty basic stuff too.)

cwilliams38422.509525463, 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. ,

All this being said installing the desktop version of SQL may be a little tricky as it may complain that your SA account needs a strict password.

The solution is to run the SQL Desktop setup.exe with some parameters specifying a password for the SA account.

So you go to the command prompt or make a shortcut to the setup file and run something like this

setup.exe SAPWD="YourPassword"

minus the quotes...

I got that info from this article and it worked fine
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/Q_21036508.html

The other thing to remember is it might take a reboot to actually see the SQL server icon running in the taskbar. You may also need to go into the administrative services and enable the "SQLSERVERAGENT" as well as set its startup type to "automatic"

And a reboot here and there..

Whammo... your in business...

DONE IT

DON'T WORRY!

DON'T ASK HOW, BUT NOW IT WORKS!!

THANK YOU IF IT WAS YOU, OR THANK YOU GOD IF IT WAS ME!!!

, It is most likely because they have something running like Norton Ad Blocker.

Or something of that nature that blocks anything with certain words in it like "ad"

They are running something that is doing it.cwilliams38450.0079282407, Flash files cannot track clicks unless you edit the original flash file to link to the aspbanner system redirect URL.. feeding it the correct ID of the banner.

When that link is clicked on it will then track the click and redirect the user to the “link url” specified for that banner. 

The system actually generates the necessary ASPBanner URL for you. That link is shown on the banner edit screen.(you must save the banner at least once and come back to that screen to see the link though) 

Really the best way to show it is with an example as seen below.



Basically the flash banner file "powerasp.swf" highlighted in green needs to be edited to link to the banner redirect url which is highlighted in red.... the banner redirect url will then track the click and ultimately send the user to the Link_URL highligthed in blue.

All banners systems work this way when it comes to flash files.
It’s the nature of flash and the web browser, 

The flash source code must be edited to link to the redirect url in the ASPBanner system. There is no possible way any banner system can track a flash click unless the flash file links to the banner system 1st.... because that click is handled by Flash and the web browser. 

In some cases if you do have the original source file for the flash banner then you are out of luck as far as tracking clicks goes.



On a side note... if you create flash banners the way this article says you can actually feed a .swf flash file a link for it to click to. Instead of it being hardcoded.

http://www.macromedia.com/resources/richmedia/tracking/desig ners_guide/index.html

This is really the way everyone should design their flash banners from now on because the url it links to can be easily changed at any time without editing the flash file source code. 

cwilliams38325.740162037,

Same here.  Thinking it might be server load or the bandwidth to the server.

Thanks for checking!

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,

We can't seem to find the purchase emails for this install of ASPProtect.

It would have been in May 2004 for NetOptions LLC or CareerMatrix.com

We noticed it should have been v6 of ASPProtect.

Can you resend the download links?

,

My ISP uses ASPSmartMail. The email confirmation works except when I try to register an AOL user the server returns an error 500.

 

, I checked the SQL table and had 1 banner with no zone ID. I added it in
directly through the SQL interface and now it seems to be ok., aspprotect does not use a global.asa file

I would start by looking there and seeing what is going on ... with line 33

I dont see how it could be related to aspprotect in any way

Global.asa files fire on their own and what they do depends on what code is put in them, "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.
