Yup, it probably means the virtual directory is not configured as an Application in IIS.

You did put this in a plain folder in your web, correcct ?
Not a subweb

Regarding the application settings for the virtual directory.. if it is your server you set that stuff up in the IIS console.

If hosted somewhere it is there responsibility to have that set up correctly for you and you need to contact them and ask them what the deal is.

cwilliams38455.9035300926, I assume so you can clean up users that register, but then never pay ?,



I'm using Aspimage and SQL. Photos are 2464 x 1632 px, tried the upload and import directory methods, same results: thumbnails ok, full images 0 bytes.

, no the "expected path" is something that gets generated for you if you have parent paths enabled. to help you fill things in correctly...

basically if parent paths are enabled it shows you what the path should be for each path field on the settings page... if parent paths are disabled there will be nothing to the right of expected path for technical reasons (lack of being able to do a "../../" to figure out the paths more or less)

in that case there is a file called "expected_paths" in the data folder that you can run to tell you the expected path info
,

well, I was curious myself so I just tried it.

Good news is it worked just as I thought.

Only problem is your changing things to allow authentication info to be passed over the net in a url. If you can live with the security implications then it will work. I mean a sniffer could see that and end up knowing the username and password.. not likely but just putting that out there.

Of course now that I think about it unless you are running under SSL (https://) when you log in normally that info is in the post info anyway and possible to get at.. course not right out in the open like when you put it in the url and less likely to be noticed.

As long as your not doing it to access critical areas like the admin pages... and you monitor the log files once in a while it's probably nothing to worry about.

, Thanks for the information. We added the name manually instead of using the App_Name variable., if you just see code then you do not have ASP and Web Server setup correctly.. Basic IIS Server Setup stuff and not something I cover, but there is plenty of info out there.

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

Honestly cannot comment much about v7 since it was just installed on a new server.  We have been running 5.03 for years so I'm looking forward to the new features in v7.

,

Hello,

VBScript is the most popular ASP scripting language, and has the most support available. I estimate that less than 5% of the ASP coders out there use anything other than vbscript

That being said it specifically says on the aspprotect site ASPProtect is only for use in protecting asp using "vbscript" as the language.

http://www.aspprotect.com/more_info_full_v7.asp

http://www.aspprotect.com/comparison.asp

it is something I specified very clearly for this very reason.

Sorry, but you can not use ASPProtect to protect pages using Language="Javascript". The code is too complex to be mixed with server side Javascript.

To password protect asp pages written using "Javascript" you really need a an application specifically written in and designed to work with ASP pages written using "Javascript". And then of course that application would not be able to protect ".asp" pages written using "vbscript." (I mean never say never, but it would be a ton of work to get both working and I doubt you will ever see a commercial application that does both)

as for switching back and forth between vbscript and javascript you really can't except with very simple code. Doing so with anything complex can be extremely problematic because the order of execution sometimes gets all mixed up because of the complexity of the code being used.

That doesn't mean it can not work....

You would really want to do something like this.


do not specify a default language at the top

surround the aspprotect include file with this

<SCRIPT Language="vbscript">

</script>

surround your javascript code with this

<SCRIPT Language="JavaScript">

</script>

then make sure none the code including the aspprotect include file has any <% or %> tags in it

that means you have to remove that sort of thing everywhere... that means a lot of work if you used a lot of that sort of thing instead of response.writes to write out html type stuff

and again... I don't know if you would ever get it all working

,

Hello,

no default setting for something like that... what your thinking about doing is on the right track I'd say

,

How to set a new users expiration date.

You'll need to edit the "users/add_new_account.asp" with a text editor.

Find this section..

<%
CmdAddUser.Fields("ValidateEmailCode") = ValidateEmailCode
CmdAddUser.Fields("Access_Level") = "4"
' PUT YOUR CODE HERE
CmdAdduser.Update
ID = CmdAdduser("ID")
CmdAdduser.Close
Set CmdAdduser = Nothing
ConnPasswords.Close
Set ConnPasswords = Nothing
%>

You'll want to add code like this right between the Acccess_Level  and Updates section

CmdAddUser.Fields("Expiration_Date") = Date + 60

That will give take todays date and add 60 days to it.
You can of course do whatever you want here.

Actually, any database value for the user can be set during registration.

You can also change the default Access_Level to whatever you like.

 

 

 

 

cwilliams38088.4986689815,

OK, I updated the server with the SP 8 Jet updates and this had no effect.

Then I loaded the asptest file and put in the correct path. The results were:

Failed: Database could not be connected to....

Error reported from server:
Error source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers
Error number: -2147467259
Error description: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x784 Thread 0x854 DBC 0x2101014 Jet'.

,

To hopefully wrap this thread up...

This user showed me his site and things were working for me as they should.

We came to the conlusion that the weird behavior he was experiencing was because he was using AutoComplete in Internet Explorer....

It was automatically filling in the fields with his username/password that he had autocomplete save.

So it was a web browser usage issue.. not the code.

cwilliams38165.5102546296,

Regarding (ASP Photo Gallery Pro)

If you are looking to import a very, very, large number of images, the upload feature might not be sufficient for you. I have done some work using a unix terminal to be able to upload as many images as I would like by simply placing the images in the directory and renaming the images. There are other ways to rename the images, but I am very familiar with Linux, so I chose to do it this way. If you are running Linux, MacOS, or another Linux-based OS, you can simply pull up a terminal and run the following command in the appropriate directory. If you run Windows, I'd suggest CygWin, which creates a Linuxenvironment (Linux shell). It can be found at www.cygwin.com In order to be recognized by the ASP software, the images must be in the format of pic_"Album Number"_"Picture Number".jpg . Therefore, the following code is run to accomplish the file name change (on one line without wordwrap):

ls -1 DSC* |
sed 's/DSCN//g'
sed 's/.JPG//g' |
awk '{print "mv DSCN"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".jpg"}'
This command will change all files beginning in "DSCN" to "pic_9_*Picture Number*".

This does have a slight problem however. If there is a large number of pictures, 0's become a problem. For example, if there are 200 pictures, picture 1 will show up as pic_9_001.jpg. This can be fixed by the following command, which will eliminate unneccesary 0's (All on one line once more):

ls -1 --color='never' pic_9_0*
|sed 's/_0/_/g'
|sed 's/pic_9_//g'
|sed 's/.jpg//g'
|awk '{print "mv pic_9_0"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".JPG"}'

This command eliminates 1 zero. It should be run as many times as needed to eliminate all zero's.

Please Note: These commands will only show the resultant set (The list of picture names). In order to execute them, they must be output to a shell script using the ">" character as follows:

ls -1 DSC* |
sed 's/DSCN//g'
sed 's/.JPG//g' |
awk '{print "mv DSCN"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".jpg"}' > temp.sh

Then, the shell script must be run using the following command:

sh temp.sh

This might take a few moments, depending on the amount of picture names that are being changed.

IMPORTANT: BACK UP all files before changing file names. Also, view the resultant sets to make sure it's what you want before outputting to a shell script.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post or e-mail me @ JPortnoy@checkernet.com

cwilliams38210.5703009259, and did you response.write that session value to see if it holds anything to ensure it is being set ,

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

Really awesome, thanks..

If possible please be sure to respond to the email they send so the review ends up authenticated

 

 

, I've been working on it for quite some time.... doesn't seem to be working as of yet :(,

No rush, I have it out on the internet, but have not gone live with the site yet.

Thanks for responding,

Enjoy your well deserved break

,

There are 8 Access Levels by default.. they work like this.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=166& ; ; ;PN=1

Access Levels exist in ASPProtect Version 7 for backward compatibilty for customers using previous versions.

Truth is Groups are the replacement for Access Levels and they are much more powerful and flexible. You can also make as many of them as you want in the admin area.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=167& ; ; ;PN=1


On a side note:
We also coded ASPProtect Version 7 so there could technically be as many access levels as you wanted. It's not supported but if you really wanted more Access Levels you would carefully add more Access Levels to the drop down choices when you edit a user. "edit.asp"

I don't know why anyone would want to use Access Levels however when they can use Groups.

cwilliams38433.5546875, ya it should have uploaded that no problem...

what about something blocking the use of the filesystem object and causing these timeouts ?

Your not running anything like Norton Script Blocker are you ?
Its part of Norton Antivirus or Internet Security and causes all sorts of problems with ASP when it is running on a server. Especailly when using the filesystem object to deal with text files and when uploading via pure asp.

It could be the cause of the all these problems or something like it ?

It will cause a timeout like your getting and give no real reason why.

More info on that.
http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2180, Thank you!  I thought that is what had to be done, just didn't want to miss out on a short cut if there was one.  Thanks again,
Hi,
 
I have a question re ASP Protect, I have got it up and running on a dev server which also hosts a e-com engine (ASP / Access), when users check out they are presented with the e-com log in screen (which is sharing the same ASPP_User table). All's well and registration and editing user details is fine both in the Admin section and the front end of ASP and if I request an email reminder from the ecom scripts I get back the encrypted password.  
 
I'm using <% = Session("Email") %> and <% = Session("Password") %> to populate the fields on the ecom log in page so users can click though and progress, the checkout process needs the username/password, all user info shows up ok, however, when I proceed with these credentials, it doesn't work, even though I know these to be correct and even without requesting a password reminder and using the one that gets me in everywhere else, I still can't get through? do I need some code re the crypto so the ecom can decode??
 
Any help would be great - I've been on it for about 10 hours, and checked through the posts here but can't fathom it out?
 
Thanks Craig

This is what it says in that thread I pointed you to

This zip file contains 3 sets of alternate files depending on your situation. You simply replace your existing aspprotect v7.x files with these new ones.

I really dont see what is confusing about it. I think I explained it all in detail in that thread.

, I just started using ASPJpeg, and i used the "generate_new_thumbnails.asp" to create new thumbs of all of the existing albums.  It generates the thumbs just fine, but they don't get picked up by the "Randomly Selected Photo" section.  If I upload new pics, they will show up in the random photo area.

So, it reads the new upload thumbs, but not the newly generated ones using your .asp page. 

Is there anything I can do?    ,

Three questions here:

1. I am having a problem with characters being displayed properly when viewing listings. Some alphabet characters and punctuation characters do not display properly when viewing the pages.

 

Sample here:

 

 

http://www.hibari2.com/lanoitanretni/kokusai_profiles/view_i tem.asp?Ad_ID=102&CatLevel=2&Cat1_ID=3&Cat2_ID=& amp; amp; amp; amp;Cat3_ID=&Cat4_ID=&FromSearch=True&SearchPage =%2Flanoitanretni%2Fkokusai%5Fprofiles%2Fdefault%2Easp%3FCat Level%3D2%26Cat1%5FID%3D3

 

 

In the access database I was looking at the properties for the ‘Ad_Custom’ fields. Unicode Compression is 'Yes' but IME Mode is set to 'No Control'. I wonder by changing this to ‘Hiragana’ if will solve the issue.

Note: the essays are typed in English on computer with Japanese OS, and then pasted up. Even though they are typed in English, there are several setting that may affect the output.

 

 

2. I want to reverse sort order for listings instead of listing 4, 5, 6, 7, I’d like to sort 7, 6, 5, 4… Could you tell me which page has to be edited, and in simplest terms what has to be changed?

 

3. Also, I’d like to increase the default display of ‘items per page’ from 25 to 100. Could you tell me which page has to be edited, and in simplest terms what has to be changed?

 

Thanks

 

HIBARI38155.8447569444, I didn't know about it. I will try to check it out some more this week.

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

,

Hello,

1.)

I dont really have any ideas about the japanese characters. I also don't have any ideas about changing settings in the database. Your going to have to do some research on all of that.

Perhaps try pasting the text into a text document 1st.. then copy/paste them into the application. Perhaps that will eliminate any unseen weird characters. I do it sometimes when pasting things from word to my html editors and it works great.


2.)

I dont/cant support custimization to the code but here are some tips to get you started.

edit "items_inc.asp" carefully with a text editor
(back it up before you begin so you can revert back)

change this anywhere you see it

?SORTBY=Name

to

?SORTBY=Name+Asc

or

?SORTBY=Name+Desc

Expiriment to see which gives you the desired sorting.
Do the same process for the price.
The + Sign just passes a "space" back to the page in the proper format if you are wondering.

3.)

The items for page setting is easy. Just go to the settings page when logged in as the admin. Edit this field.   "ResultPageSize"

cwilliams38157.5340277778,

The only other thing I can think of if you are not getting any errors.

Is that you may have the path to the server include file correct but ASP server side code is not executing in that part of your web site.

 

You can do a simple test to tell if it is...

Make a simple ".asp" page in the same folder.

Put only this code in it.

 

<% Response.Write ("ASP is executing") %>

then run the page via the web browser thru the server..

If the text prints out ASP is running... if you don't see anything it is not

cwilliams38229.5820486111,

is that lindsey lohan and her fake boobs as ur avatar?

I am installing IIS and all of its glory on the other computer now... gotta love remote desktop (the pc is at work  )

, We would like to give a member an opportunity to upload an image when on their profile page. How does this work with the photo option on the settings page? Is this the intended usage? Thank You. ,

Hi, I am glad you like the system.
Thx for the comments..

The banner logic in aspbanner it tweaked for speed and performance.. that sort of thing really wouldn't fit into the current code structure very well. It would slow things down and be a nightmare to code because of the way aspbanner uses ultra fast application variables for the banner rotation. Basically its a feature I didnt incorporate for performance and pricing reasons.

I would suggest making different zones for different conditions.. then surrounding the banner calling code with if else logic so a different baner zone was called under certain conditions.

That way performance would not be effected and you could actually show a different group of banners based on certain conditions.

Sorry, but that is the best advice I can offer at this time.

I built ASPBanner for performance and at this time I refuse to sacrifice that for any feature that will slow it down and consume more resources.

cwilliams38383.5395601852,

Glad it worked

cwilliams38406.5549074074,

When I enter www.vickerylightning.com/aspgallery/dataconn_inc.asp on the screen it says "Not a valid bookmark"

 

as far as that goes I have no idea.. I have never seen that message before but you are not suppose to run that page by itself regardless.. it is an include file not meant to run on its own

, At the bottom of my "users" list page, it asks the question "number of users displayed per page"?  After hitting a larger number than the default of 1-25, it increases the number of users per page to that number.  But as soon as I leave that page, it goes back to the default.  Any thoughts?, that information is actually not helpful in determining whether parent paths is enabled or not.

You should really ask your hosting company or better yet try doing a server side include to page one directory up and see if you get an error.

example

<!--#include file = "../myfile.asp"-->
cwilliams38302.6484259259, 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. ,
