Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:47:38 PM

It's MS Access, Version 7 (the Full one).

Anyway, I had inadvertently changed the user_id field type to "number".  When I changed it back to "autonumber", everything went back to normal.

 

Thanks you very much for your quick reply and sorry to have bothered you.

,

You would set the groups during users signup the same way you would do the expiration in the following example.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo170-1.htm

The groups field need to be set the exact same way it would look like in the database of course

So, if a user was part of groups 1, and 2

You would look in the database and see this in the groups fields for that user

*1*,*2*

so in the signup code you set that like so

CmdAddUser.Fields("Groups") = "*1*,*2*"

This info only applies to resgitrations and signups using the "users" folder.
if you wanted to make different sceanrios you would need to carefully make a copy of the users folder and adjust it accordingly

Is there a way to set various members to upload a limit of photos. So, one member can only upload 5 photos in 1 album and another can upload 30 photos in 2 albums. Even if you just set a permission for the number of uploads for each member.

Thank you

,

Is there an easy way to make this work with reoccurring a monthly or yearly subscription?

, Bingo! that did it.  Somehow the data must have gotten corrupted. 

Hopefully that will do for me. Seems like everything is humming along and looks great!

Thanks again,

Laura
, I am trying to understand how/where the "Log_Off_URL" variable is set
I have searched the forum for that string but don't get real good
results...I think the _'s are replaced with spaces for the search.

I am learning how to use the groups options and have modified some of
your example access level examples to test out group stuff.  At the
bottom of the default.asp page I see a "LOG OFF SYSTEM" link that is
filled with a link stored in the Log_Off_URL variable and it looks
like that is being set back to the default.asp file somehow.  So when
I click on it it just refreshes the page and appears to keep my user
logged in. 

Seems like it should log out the user and redisplay the
login page.  Is there a way to log totally off and have the login page
show up again?  I am sure I am missing some obvious thing
somewhere...I can see where the Log_Off_URL variable is being created
in the config_inc.asp file but did'nt know where to look for more
info.  Can you point me to an existing forum link?

Thanks!!
, Got it.  Thanks Chris!

After turning off the friendly errors, here is the detail.

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0131'
Disallowed Parent Path

/users/register.asp, line 16
The Include file '../dataconn_inc.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.

ANSWER:
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=5&K W=Disallowed+Parent+Path+

lancem38310.6408101852, I believe that solved the problem as I have not heard from this person since I sent him the code.,

Permissions and Folder Locations

By default and to keep things clean we store everything in folder called "data"

That folder then has it in 4 sub folders

database (where the .mdb and temporary .ldb files are handled)
export (where the aspprotect export files are saved)
logfiles (where the aspprotect logfiles are saved)
user_pics (where the user pictures are saved)

Doing it this way makes it very easy for a system administrator to right click on one folder and set permissions for that folder and all of it's child folders.

Now, that being said.. you do not have to use these folders.

For example if you already have a folder in your web with modify permissions for the anonymous webserver account then you can use that one folder to store all of the 4 things above.

You'd simply edit your data connection string to point to that folder and then edit the other paths in the settings area of ASPProtect.

We did it that way so you would have options in case your hosting company was being difficult with your ASP hosting needs.

cwilliams38403.6837962963,

The file check_user_inc.asp as the lines: (which include Session("groups")

 Here we set some valus about the user into session variables
   Session("PasswordAccess") = "Yes"
   Session("Access_Level") = CmdCheckUser("Access_Level")
   Session("Admin") = CmdCheckUser("Admin")
   Session("Active") = CmdCheckUser("Active")
   Session("Expiration_Date") = Expiration_Date
   Session("User_ID") = CmdCheckUser("User_ID")
   Session("Groups") = CmdCheckUser("Groups")
   Session("Redirection_URL") = CmdCheckUser("Redirection_URL")
   Session("Password") = RC4(CmdCheckUser("Password"), PasswordEncryptionKey)
   Session("Username") = CmdCheckUser("Username")

,

When a user 1st signs up a proper case function is run on certain fields.
This is only once on user signup and never done in the admin area.

It's goal is to keep things entered in Proper Case,

so if someone enters "chris williams" it becomes "Chris Williams"

It's not perfect but it helps a lot to keep the data clean and more consistent. Since it only happens during registration those values can be changed later by the admin or the user if someone wants to.

The function is only applied to the fields that it makes sense to apply it to.... 
In your case adding a drop down menu means you want exactly what is in your drop down to appear so you wouldn't want it happening.

That being said, it is really easy to remove this situation from any field it is happening to during registration.

So edit "users/add_new_account.asp" with a text editor

find

CmdAddUser.Fields("Company_Name") = PCase(Company_Name)

and change it to

CmdAddUser.Fields("Company_Name") = Company_Name

That is all that is needed to made the change

cwilliams38421.5069328704, sorry for the confusion, but I am not that good with the tech explantions yet.
what it boils down to is I have an Access Database containing over 100 members names.  I want only those people to be able to get into the secure pages.
Thanks.  Harvey
,

On the banner rotation order screen it says:

"The Order Of These Banners Will Change Randomly From Time To Time"

Can you tell me the function that does this? I'd like to increase the frequency with which the rotation order changes.

Thanks!

Hey, I run a business and I will not have things like that mentioned in these forums.

,

I am having problems accessing the admin site at the following URL:

http://www.drsweisberg.com/password_admin/default.asp

It brings up the login page, but when I enter the admin/test, it times out.  The DB is the copy with no password and it resides in a directory on the same server hosting the site but it is not in a folder viewable by web users.  This is how the dataconn_inc.asp is set:

<%
'*** Below are the only two settings you need to edit in this file
 
ConnectionString = "DSN=drweisberg;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}"
DatabaseType = "MSACCESS"
%>

The ODBC is setup and the IUSR has read/write/modify permissions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

,

I did all that you sugessted and all failed, you  said "I did a sign up.. your verify URL is not saved/set in the application variables. is this somthing I can change manually?  below are the steps I performed......

1 - made sure the web is it's own application in IIS

2 - Reset IIS in command promt

3 - Restarted the server, the only thing is I have not waited perhaps long enough for it to kick in. but it should have with the restart.

I am running windows 2003 on the front end with wondows 2003 and Exchange 2003 on the back end, is there anything else that may be causing this issure?

Thank you!

Matt...

, Any updates on this ?, Its not a known issue.. I would try the original code before you made any changes and see if it still happens to you.

It seems to be working fine here for me in amy test web.

I am going to look into some more in the meantime.cwilliams38341.7166782407,

We are emailing a weekly newsletter via the Newsletter feature.  Many clients complain that they are not receiving the newsletter.  The emails are not bouncing back indicating that they possibly are not being sent to begin with. 

Is there any way we can determine if ASP is making it through the entire database of subscribers?

, Ahhh, I see it, thanks that was the ticket.

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.

Christopher

Many Thanks

Seems like its working just got to test it bit to see, though it wasnt going to work as I had one too many End If's after the last part of the code you done for me. But even I eventually sussed it, nothing to do with your bit just another mistake on my part

Great to get support like this especially on a Saturday

regards

John

, Humm..

I have no idea where links to hose graphics are being called.

I checked the source of edt_banner.asp and I see no calls to any images named like that

I didnt see any calls in the header and footer files either...

, Chris,

Well some good news! This from my hosting company this morning...

"
I'd say that the vendor is right so I've submitted a work order to
create the *****.com/aspnetprotect directory as an application.
If there are any other directories for which this needs to be done,
please let us know. This particular task always needs to be performed
by our staff.


If you need to follow up on this job with one of our on-line or phone
technicians, you can reference ticket id 11860.

With regards

Thanks for your help thus far

cwilliams38455.5654513889, Not sure how to response.write the session variable,

rrabago

I have been looking over the code and also doing some tests.

So far everything in the code looks correct and everything I have tried has worked correctly. If I select an access level and active users it is not sending emails to inactive users as you stated.

Are you using the option pack ?

cwilliams38103.9618402778,

If things are not perfect there will be no log files and no errors.. it can only be one of these things really
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo313-2.htm

You may also want to make your the filesystem on the server is working and not disabled by norton script blocking or anything random like that. Testing the filesystem object is best done by writing a simple text file to a folder. Plenty of examples of doing that can be found at www.aspin.com

Recent activity is temporary and admin activity in the admin area is not tracked. If your application in IIS has reset or there has been no activity in the users area or in pages you protected there will be nothing there. The busier your site the more chance something will be there. For example usually our online demo has something there except right after 4am when my server does an iisreset.

, Totally 100% depends on what you are doing.. you certainly can't be renaming any fields unless you plan on editing a lot of code that references them. Adding new fields is nothing to worry about.

Also, you really should post a question like this under the forum section for the application you are referring to as well as specify exactly what changes you are talking about. For example I don't even know what application you are referring to.

I sell about 8 applications., I would like to change this file name to the typical Login.aspx, how to do this? I have a VS 2003 but need instrutions if that's the route to go., You do not run that page by itself. That is not how forms based authentication in .NET works. That is a special page used by the web.config file. It is automatically used when you protect one of your existing .NET pages but is not meant to run on itís own thus the error.

To answer your other question a user is not sent anywhere. You protect existing ASP.NET pages as shown in the documentation and the examples. If sent to any protected page they are either
prompted with a login box or if logged in they see the page as usual. If they log in the form posts to itself and they end up at the same page after supplying proper login credentials. That is how ASP.NET forms based authentication works. I suggest you get a good book on ASP.NET that explains all of that if you are still confused.

Now, if you really want some sort of page to redirect them somewhere after login make a basic asp.net page.. protect it.. and then use a redirect statement.
,

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!!!

,

yes. what you are talking about has to do with norton ad blocking software.. it blocks images or paths that have the word "ad" in them.. and you see red x's where images should be on web sites.. usually

it is different then what this thread initially mentions which has to do with a code/server issue with the application variables.

,

I was told by my ISP to use localhost and it should work and it does not. It does not require authentication to send e-mails.

Any other ideas?

 

 

Thanks

, when did you puchase/download the application? you may have old code., I am not talking about image resizing. I need to know if it is possible to limit the upload to images where their height or width is less than 500 PIX. ,

Protecting ASP Pages

To protect a page without using the Access_Level or Groups feature simply add this code to the top of that page.

Put this under the <%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

This is an example of a File Server Side Include. You could also use a Virtual Server Side Include.

The following URL explains what Server Side Includes are.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

Now when someone runs that page they will prompted to login. They will not be allowed access to that page until they successfully logged in.

An example of doing this is provided in the "default.asp" file included in the root of the Password System.
Look at the source code with a text editor to see the working code. It is quite simple.


 Protecting ASP Pages Using Access Levels

To protect a page using the Access Level feature simply add this code to the top of that page.
You simply specify the Access Level before the include file is called. In this example we are protecting the page with Access Level 4.

Put this under the <%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<% CHECKFOR = "4" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

This is an example of a File Server Side Include. You could also use a Virtual Server Side Include.

The following URL explains what Server Side Includes are.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

Now when someone runs that page they will prompted to login. They will not be allowed access to that page until they successfully logged in as a Level 4 user.

Examples of managing Access Levels are provided in the "multiple_access_levels" folder included in the root of the Password System.
Look at the source code of the ASP pages in that folder with a text editor to see the working code. Again, It is quite simple to follow.


Protecting ASP Pages Using Groups

Please see the code generators in the admin are for the code to do that.

cwilliams38403.6864351852,

Its still not there as labeled 'internet guest'.  There's a 'guest' and a host of others.  Is there a way to identify it as the proper guest account to use with ASPProtect?

Also, looking through support documentation, I see other possibilities it could be (http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/permissions.asp).  Is there a way of telling which the problem is and whether we use a dsn connection or not?

The error we are getting is

 Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x1340 Thread 0x17a4 DBC 0x162becc Jet'.

/aspprotect/scripts/populate_config_variables_inc.asp, line 11

Christopher,

I can empathize. It can be a real pain to stablize a server and fend off hack attacks.

As for beta testing, I was referring to once you get to the point where you're ready to release it to the public whether it's this month, next month, etc.

Good Luck!

Al

If you have an album with more than 96 pictures, the spacing in the tables can become incorrect, with pictures touching each other. (This program is not designed to handle more than 96 pictures due to server speed, but it can handle more than 96 with minor changes to the code.) Also, after 96 pictures, the pictures will not have 6 on a line, but rather 6 on a line up to 96 pictures and then the rest of the pictures on one line next to each other extending to the right of the screen endlessly. To fix this, I simply edited the ASP code using the following loop. It can be a perminent fix, because I used the maxpicsperalbum variable to define the spacing.

<%
Dim SixInterval
For SixInterval = 2 to maxpicsperalbum
 SixInterval = SixInterval + 5
%>
 <% If PicIndex = SixInterval THEN %> 
  </tr>
  <tr>
 <% End If %>
<% Next %>


Then, the following code must be commented out:

<% If PicIndex = 6 or PicIndex = 12 or PicIndex = 18 or PicIndex = 24 or PicIndex = 30 or PicIndex = 36 or PicIndex = 42 or PicIndex = 48 or PicIndex = 54 or PicIndex = 60 or PicIndex = 66 or PicIndex = 72 or PicIndex = 78 or PicIndex = 84 or PicIndex = 90 or PicIndex = 96 Then %>
 </tr>
 <tr>
<% End If %>

This code can be found in scripts/view_album_style*STYLE NUMBER*_inc.asp . (STYLE NUMBER depending on which style you are using (found in config file))

This change in code will enter a new table row after each 6th picture. You can have more or less than 6 pictures per line depending on the width of your files and preference by changing  changing the number 5 in this line of code: SixInterval = SixInterval + 5

If you have any questions, JPortnoy@Checkernet.com
