Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:38:10 PM

Those access levels are not used and are nothing to worry about. They are left over from the ASPProtect core which I used for the users area of ASPBanner.

I am not sure what you did but its not a none, Unless I know more I can not make any guesses what happened. I would make sure in the database that the user is active and the expiration date field for them if there is one is empty,

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

There is nothing built in to the system but it is very doable.
However, you need to be a decent asp coder because your going to have to write some code.

Basically you would want to do a check on the screen where a user uploads to count how many pictures they have uploaded.

Then act accordinly and either let them or dont let them proceed.

 

On a side note the overall filesize limit of the total of all pictures a user can upload can be set when you edit a user.

 

,

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...

,

ok, then I need more information.

Was the code changed ? Thats the big one. If it worked and now it doesn't something must have changed. Things just don't stop working on their own. I would try putting the original files back in there for everything but the config and dataconn files just to make sure and see and if it works with the original files. (back up your old ones 1st so you can copy them back of course)

Also, perhaps PM me the site info so I can go look as well.

,

User Registration

The "users" folder allows users to sign themselves up and edit there accounts as well as retrieve lost passwords..

In the settings tab of the ASPProtect admin area there are options for which fields are used and which are mandatory when a user signs up. The only validation the system performs by default is checking for mandatory status. If you want to add more validation so reduce the chances of input errors that is up to you.

You can add additional server side validation by doing server side checks on the save pages... you can also make the field sizes larger in the database if you think you need to. You'll need to be good with ASP to do this.

Always backup your files before making changes to them so that you can revert back to a working copy if you mess something up.

Hi Chris,

We installed our key onto the live server.

However, since our temp key has expired, we can't access our application on our development machine because the login won't work anywhere except on the live server.

Of course we can access the application on dev, if we remove the aspprotect tags, but if we need to log in to do something unique to the user, then we have a problem.

Can we get another temp key from you? And would there be a better long term solution to this debug/maintanence issue?

--JP

,

ok, well as far as what else to try I already told you..

you need to manually compare all those field settings with the sql script and make sure they all got set correctly...

you also need to tell me what email/name you ordered the application under... before I will continue this support with you.. at this point I don't know if you purchased the application or if you are using the unsupported lite version

I installed the ASPProtect.NET project no problem.  I am using VS.NET 2003 on Windows XP SP2 (and fully patched).  I am able to build the project successfully, however I cannot debug the project.  I get an error "Unable to start debugging on the web server. The project is not configured to be debugged."  The web app runs fine just browsing to it.

I know this is an isolated problem particular to this project.  I have MANY other .NET projects that I can debug without any problems.  I have tried going into IIS and turn on the debugging for server-side script debugging and making sure my IIS application setting were configured correctly.

Can anyone shed any light on this at all?  Christopher, is there any reason I should not be able to debug this?  (i.e. the aspprotectlicense.dll)

Thanks,

K

, ok.. glad it is doing it's thing,

Hi there,

Just bought ASPProtect 7.0 last week and just got around to installing it. I've gotten through the installation and am now trying to test the (Forgot Password) functionality.

I get the following error when I type in the e-mail (or in some cases the username) and Post the form. 

Error was [11004] Valid name, no data record of requested type

I know that the add user functionality is pointing to the correct database (I see the additional rows via SQL Enterprise Manager) and that the e-mail address I am looking for is in the SQL database. 

Any ideas? Any other information you need?

Thanks,
Toni


, Your assumption was incorrect.... the login count has nothing to do with that. The login count only has one purpose and that is to limit the amount of times a user can log in if you want to do that.

Logging in for the 1st time means the time at which they 1st login and their session at the site is created... If there session ends and they come back and login they will get redirected because it will be the 1st time again.

Forms Based Authentication is all about sessions and session variables.

If you only want them redirected somewhere based on the login count that is something you have to work out and check on your own. It's very doable.

Seems like now I should have explained that better but I never thought anyone would think it meant what you thought.,

[QUOTE=cwilliams]I would like to delete the SQL tables and set them up from scratch using enterprise manager and sql query manager and see what happens

If that is ok with you let me know.

Something is wrong like I said...  almost seems like the database is caching old password info from the field.[/QUOTE]

Sure go ahead

,

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

,

That is by design, removing and deleting are two different things as far as the classifieds system goes.

A regular user can only remove an ad from the category index. (which makes the ad inactive)

An admin however can truly delete an ad from the system.

,
Chris-
 
That appears to have fixed it!!! Thanks alot for your patience, I will never question your brilliance (or customer service) again! Where do I write you a smashing review?
Thanks!
 
, I didn't think that was it, but just to prove, I just viewed the same album from 2 different IP's.  It did not increment the "hits".   ,

You might just learn something and actually get your project finished before 2010

your over there hacking away on your virus infested WaReZ machine

 

LOL thanks for the good laugh-- i guess its time to do some reading and making my own mods to the program..

btw i never insulted cafrepress.. not sure where you got that from- just advised that what they have is exactly what i want to have done. How much for your service?

, it makes zero sense really... in the 4 years we have sold this application this is really the weirdest thing anyone has had happen..,

one thing to note... the time period we are talking about is going to to be whatever you have the session timeout set at in the settings.

perhaps making that value lower like 10 minutes is an option for you.. and might help to deal with situation

 

,

Yes, as long as each installation is in in it's own web site.
(or at least in it's own application in IIS)
Meaning you could have 5 directories in your site each with the app installed as long as each directory got set as an application in IIS.

Remember, a license must purchased for each running install except for development reasons on local machines.

cwilliams38400.5162384259,

I do not have any programming knowledge and have what might be a simple question.

I am having a hard time getting my hosting company to modify the rights on the data folder. They state they support ASP and access databases however this is the response I got when I requested the modify permissions set for the internet guest account:

Were the rights changed on the data folder?  No, we do not manage rights to folders.

My question to you is: Doesn't supporting asp require those permissions be set on the database folder or can asp (not just aspprotect) work without those rights modified?

Thanks

, YAY! I FOUND A BUG IN MY TESTING!!! Do I get a cool t-shirt or a coupon for Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream? 

Hehehe... seriously, thanks for digging deeper and spotting the error. You got some mad skillz and some excellent service, Mr. Cwilliams!
,

Thanks for that.

 

I have tried InStr("*2*",>"0") in the query design window but it does not return any members.  

 

I have orded a Access Bible to help me in furture

Hello,

If you are using ASPProtect Version 7 it is possible because version 7 supports html emailing. In any other version it would require some custom coding to add html email support. You would have to sort it out by experimenting and editing the emailing code. All the email methods have documentation on the web in some form or another showing how to send html emails.

Also,
sometimes depending on the email component being used and the email client reading the email a link in a text based email will get hyperlinked automatically. For example outlook usually will do that, but it doesn't always in other situations.

Lastly, we have special upgrade pricing should anyone want to upgrade to ASPProtect Version 7. It really has a ton of great features.

Best Regards,

Chris Williams

cwilliams38415.6414236111, humm,

thats a new one.. something is very wrong.

Please show me screenshots of exactly what happens and what you see. It does not make any sense so I need more info or I least need it described in more detail., I use the group feature and would like to know if it is possible to change or delete members from a group in bulk. For example if I have 200 users registered for group 1 and 3 how could I delete all members from group 3 in one pass rather than editing 200 individual  members?,

I really do not know.. maybe it is a conflict with something else..

I run many instances of aspbanner on my servers and I have every item to log enabled for my iis log files... my stats server software which reads those log files (livestats and smarterstats) have never reported any 404 errors related to (aspbanner/those images)...

I do not know what is happening in your situation..

sorry.

, Ok, I tried what you suggested but the program won't let me leave the date area on the banner ad blank. I reset it to a date in 2010.

I deleted the Level 1 Access note in the notes area.

I then attempted to access the banner stats using the correct info and the right link.  Again,  got this message: 

ACCESS DENIED

INVALID Username & Password

Username HAS EXPIRED

Any ideas? Should I just delete the whole account and start fresh?

TIA,

Laura
,

Still not ready... I have no time to finsih it at the moment..

release date is unknown...

 

, Then you should have current enough code.

If you PM me the encryption key you are using and the plain text password for this user I can see if I can reproduce the error and come up with a fix.

I believe you found one of the rare examples where the encryption creates a strange character that messes up things. Sometimes those characters are not even visable.

Changing the password should solve the problem in the meantime.,

I have connected to countless DB's using my own applications written in dreamweaver and have tested them on my own server and also my web facing one.  BUT this seems to be different.  no matter what I try I still get this error.

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x440 Thread 0x6b0 DBC 0x1f995bc Jet'.

On both a windows 2000 server and also a windows 2003 server. Also using both DSN and DSN less connection and oledb.

Any help would be greatly apprectiated.

Thanks

,

Chris:

The string is being saved and I get a .wav ring sound to confirm.  I have tried editing in "notepad" and then running the "data/show_path_info.asp" file after with the same results.

Ken

 

 

,

Thanks!  Will try both.

 

Appreciate the support.

,

Yea.. that error is totally because the asp pages are looking for fields in the database that are not there.. and causing a nasty loop.

 

if using the option pack you must go over the directions very carefully...
Make sure everything works step by step..

After upgrading to option pack code you either need to upgrade the database from the base system or use the newer database provided with the option pack.

Then.. you want to test every function of the groups.. if pages act slow and seem odd... especially the groups page and edit users page..
Then your not using a valid database. Either you didnt upgrade the old one, are not using the new one, or your connecting to an older verison by accident and not realizing it.

That's pretty much it...

cwilliams38300.5555671296, Can I copy the file into the export folder and then the import user function?,

As an update to this thread I fixed the "upload_post.asp" page quite some time ago but forgot to post the updated file here.

So here it is.

2005-09-16_165913_upload_post.zip

,

works fine now

,

Got any info for me on this ?

Chris

, They really have do not have anything  to do with each other as far as code and numbering goes, but I really do not fully understand your question or where you are going with this.  (the part about the user setup ?)

Groups are more powerful than access levels and are meant to replace them. Access Levels are only there for backward compatibilty with older versions. ,
