Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:44:33 PM

It should be released sometime late May 2004 or early June 2004 but no gurantees as I am pretty busy right now with some projects.

There will be upgrade instructions and it should be a fairly easy upgrade.

, Then, you would have to add those users to the aspprotect user database. You would do so using the built in import/export features of msaccess and being very carteful about it. It is not a process we support and the technique used would be unique to any situation. Its basic database work though but still you have to be able to do it.

ASPProtect uses its own user database and you have to use that database. ASPPortect can not authenticate users using some other existing database.

Does that make sense ?,



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.

Hello -

Believe it or not I finally can access the photogallery. You were right Chris regarding the unzipping of the files.

Now onto the next challenge! I have set up three categories and proceeded to create a test album. I uploaded a couple of pictures (yeah that worked!!!) but the album does not show up on the default.asp page under the category.

Please advise -

Is there a way to upload photos to individual user directories? I don't want all the picture files in a single directory.

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

, I get the following message when trying to  look up the sysdiag.aspx and the default.aspx files. Why? I have followed all the install instructions.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

cwilliams38454.4276388889,

This server is sitting in my den on a DSL circuit, so I don't have a hosting company. The install for Windows 2000 server is with default settings for all components installed.

I am not sure what you are referring to when you say:

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

What user screen?

What settings are you referring to that I may have chosen?

,

The redirection at 1st login feature is supposed to work like I explain in this thread.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo385-1.htm

Though what you just said is a bit confusing it sounds like you have some sort of browser problem and it is doing the redirect every single time. ?

I would suggest reseting all your browser settings to normal and making sure cookies are enabled because forms based authentication uses session variables and cookies must be enabled for session variables to work correctly. If not something like this could happen as the redirection at 1st login would happen over and over every time.

So try it on other computers and try with firefox as well as IE. Many people go nuts with their browser settings and way too much stuff blocked which can cuse all sorts of issues. Also some script blocking and firewall software can cause problems so disable all of that when testing.

You may also have created some sort of endless loop. (I really need to know way more information on what you did to know that for sure)

You may also want to consider doing your redirects manually meaning you protect a a page and right after the protection you use regular ASP redirect statements to redirect the user whevever you like based on their session info which is available to easily check immediatly after someone gets through the authentication.

I still stand behind my statements that redirection is not good site design. You really really need to understand and plan your ASP pages as well as have a very good understanding of the session and how all of that works if you use redirection with a password authentication scenario. You should never be redirecting someone to an ".htm" pages except during testing because you wont be able to stop users who are not supposed to go there from going there directly.

Hi,

I have just one quick question, I know this works with Paypal but does this work with Merchant Account?

How difficult it is to make it workable with Merchant account? I appreciate your answer.

Thanks.

 

 

 

,

as I look at your installation more I notice that you are using MSSQl as the database type.

chances are that is the source of these problems. Fields in the sql database are most likely not all set correctly

it is very important that the sql tables and fields are set up exactly as described and that the sql script we provide runs without error

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo160-1.htm

if you create the sql database other than the way we tell you to or the sql script doesn't do its job setting all the field types/constraints/primary keys/etc..... for some reason .. then weird things like this can happen

at this time this is my best guess as to what is going on

I would examing the sql script we provide and compare the information set in it for each field and table to your existing SQL database to see if everything got set correctly.. I would start by checking these fields 1st of all as they are very important.... (username,password,expiration_date,admin,active)

in the meantime testing the ASPProtect system with an Access database will prove that all the ASP code is working as it is supposed to if you are interested in doing that

, on that particular page check the session variables manually (not using the include)

that way you are keeping the login access checking to an absolute minimum, elminating any form processing from the login procedure, and keeping the upload script happy

like so

<%
If Not InStr(Session("Groups"),"*1*") Then
    ' do whatever
End If
%>

you could response.write something followed by a response.end

or you might even want to response.redirect them to some other page that using the "check_user_inc.asp" where they can log in

And if you are going to be using a free asp upload script use this one as it is probably the best pure code upload solution available as far as performance goes.

http://www.freeaspupload.net
,

if it is your own XP machine there is no reason you should edit that config file manually.

simply set permissions on the data folder and all the folders in it and the application will write to the config files on its own... if you are having problems chances are you are not setting permissions correctly.. please read all of this
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo56-1.htm

if is not an XP machine (your post was confusing and I am not sure) then this is an article for 2003 server
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo136-1.htm

Most importantly whats the real error ? error 500 does not help figure out anything
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo11-1.htm

lastly make sure you go into iis and make that web its own application

,

You can't unless you plan on editiing and custimizing the code.

The application is only designed to have one kind of admin and that kind has full access to the admin area.

You can of course give any user access to stats for their banners via the bannerstats page.

That is how it works. There are no other levels of admin access.

 

,

Running in parallel for testing is actually a smart way to do it, but the truth is you don't use anything from version 6 except the upgraded database (we have a tutorial on how to upgrade the database)

Version 7 was a drastic change /rewrite to all of the asp files that come with the application. So you will be starting out with fresh version 7 ".asp" files and folders... You will also find that once you get version 7 running that editing certain things like the look of the users area and the login screens is much easier to do.

That being said any of your own ".asp" pages that you protect use the same protection code they always did, so there will be no drastic changes needed there when you do finalize the upgrade.



If using MSACCESS as the database I suggest installing the application somewhere in your web and using a fresh ASPProtect 7 database. Once you are familiar with the setup and everything is working fine. Attempt the database conversion and when your done stick your converted database in there and see if everything is ok.

Also, if you already purchased the application download the latest version before doing the install. It's the same download URL. If you don't have it email me and I can hook you up. I have added some new features and fixed a couple minor things since it's release.

So far the feedback on version 7 has been awesome..

cwilliams38414.0133680556,

I am brought to a logon page in which I cannot access the page.  This must be due to the check_user_inc.asp include.  Without the include I get a blank page.

,

as far as sql goes if you follow the instructions with give for setting up a new database you shouldnt have any issues and permissions should be already set. because we handle that in the sql script we give you.. "its a good thing to look at and it is pretty easy to understand what is going on""

however using another account could cause permissions issues.."yes, even sa"     basically the username your using needs datareader and datawriter permissions to all tables used by the photo gallery system and you probably have to go specifically set them usin ght e security tab for your database in enterprise manager. This is more of SQL server 101 than anything to do with the Photo Gallery Code so I am not going to get into it too deeply, but that is definetly the issue.  Permissions...

cwilliams38303.6065740741,

Thanks for the quick reply!

I was thinking it was an ASP config/install issue.

I usually deal with Linux/PHP, so this is all new to me :)

,

how di I change the currency dollar sign to gdp pound sign ?

I need all my tranactions in gdp puund sterling to use on paypal

regards

simon

,
Rather than bill customers through my PayPal account in $$$ can I get ASPProtect to send through the amount to PayPal in (pounds sterling)?
 
I am using PayPal (non-subscription) [paypal_signup]
 
Many thanks
 
Ian
,

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

,

when I go to that url is seems fairly fast and somewhat normal.. even when I try to log in it pops right back up asking for login info again..

I would check to make sure you are not running anything that might be effecting your web browsing.. software firewalls.. ad blockers.. script blockers... norton internet security.. zone alarm... anything like that

they can all effect a lot of things regarding how web browsers act.

,

If you bought ASPBanner Unlimited Version 7.3 Before August/01/2004 this file needs to be updated.

It fixes a bug where CODE type banners do not work correctly with a weight higher than 1.

Basically, blank banners will rotate and you will see nothing sometimes.

Copy this file into your ASPBanner folder over the existing file of the same name.

cwilliams38209.5383680556,

Good Morning - I am receiving an Http 500 internal server error when I go to add a new user via the register.asp page.   the url when the error appears is: .../users/add_new_account.asp

I think the error has to do with my email component setting - becuase it works fine otherwise.

I have the email component setting set to CDOSYS (using remote server) with the mail.remote.server set to email.cidra.com - email address set to webmaster@cidra.com

Note: I receive the email notification and the user does get added.

Can you help please? Shirley

UPDATE...I just figured out that it only errors when the email address I use for the user is NOT from cidra.com -- Any idea why?

 

,

I'm having another problem-hopefully it's a quick fix.

 

If i try to login as a user in the Http://localhost/aspprotectlogin.aspx page

 

it tries to go to a page: default.aspx    

 

Server Error in '/' Application.


The resource cannot be found.

Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested Url: /default.aspx

 

When i log in as admin from the aspprotectadmin/default.aspx that works fine...

where should the user be sent when they log in? Am i supposed to specify that or is it automatic? Why isnt it working for me? I dont believe i changed any settings that correspond to that either

,

i downloaded the latest version. i also downloaded the sql script provided and ran in sql query analyser to create the tables.

After that i ran a special page to intially get into the system,

then setup a new user, then make them an admin,

and after that i logged out and again when i try to login iam not able to login.  When i check the ASpp_User table 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. But if the value are Nulls or 0 it means it's not active and it's not allowing me to login.

Pls advice

 

,

That would be great.

I am sure you know that many virus that are sent via email have the same property. (double extension). The code can be executed even though Windows identifies them as simple text files etc.

Thanks again

,

I had not rebooted after installing the Jet driver updates, so I tried that and the asptest page worked fine, and said that all the tests were successful and that the data connection was setup correctly. I then installed aspprotect again, but with the same results. I cannot log-in from the get_me_in.asp page. It still says that it is opening the page, but does not respons for an indefinite period. The asptest page is in the same directory.

I have looked for alternate databases for this product on your site, but I cannot seem to find them.

,

I've encountered another problem.  When i edit the link for existing banners and save it, the banner reverts to the old link instead of the new one.

The directory where the the database is located to rwed so the permissions is not a problem.

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks

 

,

Post a request in the "custom code work" forum.
Perhaps another customer will want to do the work or help you out with some code.

I am just too busy to do any custom work for quite a while.

 

,

Humm.. that should have worked fine

why are you getting a "OLE DB" error I wonder ?

I need more information. 

Database being used and version ?
Server OS Version?
Connection String being used ?

etc etc

, no worries from me.  As with most software projects, i tweak the heck out of them and then have to make a big decision about whether or not i even want/need to upgrade.

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,

I dont understand why I would get an error? -- I'm not sending the email from internal - so why would it try to validate?

I'm trying to send an email to an independent place - just like I would send an email to you

Am I using the wrong email setting - should I be doing something other than using "remote server"

,
Excellent.
 
Payment now taken in .
 
Pasted <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GDP"> into

humm, I dont know then..

If you want PM me your site info and I will go in and troubleshoot.

Frontpage or frontpage access, either way

and also the site URL

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

,

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
%>

cwilliams38354.0786921296,

Thank you....  yes it does

 

Is there a limit in the number of Zones you can have in the database.

 

thanking you

, I already gave execute permissions to the stored procedures and that
cleared up the first error, but the second one I still can't figure out.,

OK.  If no return page is set, do they end up on a PayPal confirmation page and have to navigate back to my site by going Back or typing the web address?
