Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:43:54 PM

Here is the complete page with the error message:

============================================================ ===

Unspecified error



This means there is most likely a problem with the "ConnectionString" info that you specified.

If you are using a DSN-Less Connection with MSACCESS.

Check that the physical path to the database has been specified correctly.
It has to be perfect and correct. It cannot be specified using "http://" or by using "server.mappath".
It has to be specified like the following example.

ConnectionString = "DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\advpass_pro\_database\passwords.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=admin;PASSWORD=Xpass"

If this is running on an NT server or Win2000 Server make sure that permissions have been set on the database.
Only the server admins can do this. If you are not the admin you will have to ask for this to be done.



If you are using a System DSN

It is not set up correctly. Again, make sure the permissions have been set for the database and that the system DSN has been set up correctly by the server admins.

============================================================ ===

I am the only one on the site since I just transferred the files and in the testing phase.  It is using an MSAccess DB

 

, Please try this URL www.telepedia.net/pages/chem_periex.asp
It is protected by GROUPACCESS "6" and the username:dimitris and password:tele
In the administration area, I have arranged this username as member of the group 6.
Thank you in advance for your help
,



"save_pic_desc.asp"

in both the admin and users area needs to be edited

You'll see something like this...

If Len(Image_Description) > 250  Then

 

just change 250 to something higher.. I wouldn't go much over 500 though as it may cause problems.. I am really not sure.. Changing it higher is done at your own risk.

cwilliams38300.5727314815, ok thanks,

I am getting closer.

 

This error actually does not have anything to do with the forgotten password feature or your database.

 

It has to do with the settings you chose for emailing.

it relates to aspmail and it not liking the remotehost you used, or something like that.... etc etc

,

  Much thanks, the duplicate incl's I spaced on and should have caught.  The hidden form variable was a key issue.  Thanks for the syntax and the help.  Now I get this page together. j  As a note - I got faster results by dropping my timeout to 3 minutes temporarily while progging and cleared browser cache between tests.  Thanks again.

,

Noted:
I actually did not think you did.

As far as debugging goes.. thats all built into visual studio.net.
There is a tag you edit in the web.config file to enable project debugging
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo251-1.htm

Like I said though for changes to ASPProtect.NET I'd start off from scratch and stick with vb.net... using the visual.studio.net interface is not really vary hard to remove and change things you dont' need even if you are a C# coder. Especially simple stuff like you mentioned.

,

If we wanted to user groups, is the "Access Level" in the User setup the same ID as what the group access would be?  Ex. If John had Access Level 4 and the page specified <% GROUPACCESS = "4" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

I'm asking because there is no Group Access Level in the user setup.  Thanks

,

Our home page is not showing up gives this error:

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0126'

Include file not found

/Default.asp, line 246

The include file 'elib/articles/home_feature1.asp' was not found.

, the email address thing could be done many ways... personally I would remove the username field from the registration form.. and modify things so the email field got used for username and for email when everything gets saved on the page that register.asp posts to. ... it would all require some messing around with the code and time... nothing too hard really

as for the password thing it all happens in the register.asp file.. the same page the registration screen is on in the web browser.. again a little bit of fooling around and time but not difficult ,

actually  I just went to it again and it was somewhat slow coming up this time..

perhaps you have some issues with the sql database.

it should be instant.. like this one I run on my server
http://banserver.powerasp.com/aspbanner/

I suppose it could also have something to do with sql server resources but its hard to say..

 

cwilliams38319.7859722222,

I get this error, Any ideas?

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] '(unknown)' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

/guestbook/save.asp, line 109

,

Chris, that fixed it.  Found 2-references to guestbook2 in the file show_messages_inc.asp located in the \guestbook\ directory.

Suggestion for future release.  Create an option to email the admin when a message is posted.  If this code already exists please advise.

Thanks, Lance

, I will give you permission to move it since you asked., Oh, it does seem to put the photo in the correct directory.,

When using the ASPProtect admin panel. My firewall software is going crazy or Blocking it on the Mass E-Mail, Newsletter, and other pages.

Here are some of the messages:

[Unauthorized Access Attempt] This signatures detects an attempt by a web server to deliver a malicious HTML page to a browser client, in an

I am using Black Ice...

Will users also get this kind of activity from the pages ??? Or is it only because of using the Admin Interface of the software ???

Thanks

 

 

, We have no add-ons for anything but accepting payments through paypal and 2checkout... if you want to accept payments through some other setup you have make a payment directory addon and write code to do it based on the system you are using..

We provide the ASP source code so that is doable for someone that is good with ASP. If not then it won't be doable.
,

Hope the wedding went well.  I have one this weekend.

I was successful at performing an upload.  The free upload software was either not configure properly (probably) or not working.  I downloaded the trial version of softartisan's upload (which is like over $300) and it started working. 

Can more than one photo be uploaded at one time (like a whole folder full of photos) or does each have to be done individually?

,

Okay, I did that, now I get:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c'

Path not found

/aspprotect/password_admin/upload_post.asp, line 292

,

Disallowed Parent Path

The Include file '../dataconn_inc.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory. 

When you get an error like this it is because parent paths are disabled on the web server. This is a setting in the IIS console for your website.

If it is not enabled on you server you will have to ask your host to enable parent paths for your website.

This is what the settings screen looks like on an XP Machine



Additional Information:

It is enabled by default on IIS4-IIS5 but in IIS6 it is disabled by default.
It is a minor security risk to have enabled and some hosts can be difficult about setting it.

Truth is, if your hosting ASP for customers you need to enable this setting if the customer requests it. Especially since 90% of the ASP applications out there require the setting.

Hosting companies should if they are serious about hosting ASP.


If they won't your only option is to go through all the code and convert the file includes to virtual includes.

http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

The trouble with virtual includes is they are different depending on the layout of your website. (that's why web application developers generally don't use them)

Basically if you are in a sub domain the path for the virtual include is going to be different then if you were in the root.. etc etc

Also.. someone developing on a local machine would need totally different virtual includes on the development server than they would on the live server. Server Side includes are processed before ASP so there is no way to make them SMART, so to speak. Server Side includes are hardcoded and that's that.

In my opinion virtual includes are pretty useless for commercial web based applications...  Since you don't know where the customers plan to install the apps.
And YES there are some tricks when designing the applications that make it less of an issue but they are not perfect solutions.

For example...

The virtual include below would work if the application or code was installed in the root
<!--#include virtual = /somefile.asp"-->

But if the application or code was installed in a directory called "somedirectory" the virtual include directive would need to look like this

<!--#include virtual = "/somedirectory/somefile.asp"-->

cwilliams38391.6033101852,

you have to check the session variables for groups a little differently.. info on that is here

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo198-1.htm

,

I know what is happening.. its the old single quote thing messing up the query string..
but it shouldnt be happening with the newer code as I fixed it.

If you like I can go in and reproduce/fix the issue. I can not think of any other way I can help you as other users have not reported the issue.

Chances are if it is happening in one situation it will happen again in the future.. it really all depends on the passwords being used and your encyrption key... other passwords may produce the issue even if the password is correct

basically once the password gets encrypted it by chance has a single quote in it... then it messes up the query

I take care of the situation by replacing the single quote with a double quote but it looks like you found a situation where that didn't work out

 

cwilliams38453.8921990741,

I apologize if I've missed this, but I would love to see the ability to auto-e-mail the advertiser at some randomly set interval before the banner expires. Ideally, I would also be cc'd on this e-mail so I can stay in touch. If the advertiser wants to renew, I can receive payment and change the expiration date without their banner ever falling out of service.

Since e-mail is already built into the program, would it be difficult to add a routine that checks for expiring banners at some daily interval, and contacts the advertiser?

To get really fancy, the e-mail could include the ability for me to add a button for paypal, allowing the advertiser to easily click and send off another payment.

Best,

Wayne

cwilliams38426.5449537037,

The login page sends the user to redirect.asp (which is as follows)

<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->
 
<%
If InStr(Session("Groups"),"*1*") Then
    Response.Redirect("gp01.asp")
End If
%>

<%
If InStr(Session("Groups"),"*2*") Then
    Response.Redirect("gp02.asp")
End If
%>

 

I am not being redirected to gp02.asp if I am a member of group2.  Also, we wish users who are part of group 2 and 3 to go to a different page (ie. gp2-3.asp)

Thanks in advance.

,

perhaps the filesystem object is disabled on the server ?
or some sort of script blocking is running and causing a problem ?

other than that I can take a look if you put it up on a live server.

,

check permissions for the user you are connecting to the SQL database.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo122-1.htm

That user may not have permission to make new data

Also,  check all field and table settings manually by comparing them to the SQL creation script we provide. You may very well be missing auto increment and primary keys which would make adding new data not work.

It is most likely one of those two things.

,

it is not uncommon for folder permissions to be lost or changed on a server.. a lot of things can cause it

if it was working and now you can not edit or write new data to the database it is most likely permissions

I would triple check permissions... see my articles if there is any doubt on how permissions are set

Glad it is working.. for anyone reading this the customer bascially did this
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=36& PN=1

That being said asp photo gallery actually has a few more places that send email that you going to need to modify as well. Off hand the reply to album, admin massemail, admin send email,and postcard features come to mind possibly as 3 of them.

using a multiple file search and replace utility like ReplaceEm would be the easy way to do all of this in one step and find all the instances

http://www.orbit.org/replace/

 

 

cwilliams38420.4424537037,

Yes I did see that, and created the new project as well as imported the DLL's. I guess my question is; is it as easy as rename the file from aspprotectlogin.aspx to login.aspx and then running the release to regenerate? I know this is a novice question as I am a novice to .NET but the fastest way to learn is to do. Also I know youíre an advanced programmer with better things to do so if Iím stepping over the line from technical help to basic programming I should already know, feel free to point me somewhere ells.

,

It really means just what it says. Your connection string is just not valid and the sql server speicifed can not be reached. The username and password could also be invalid. Since you already had a database set up you should use the same username and password you have always been using. You also need to use the same database name you have always been using. Without actually knowing more and seeing what you are doing it is pretty hard to tell you anymore than that.

The directions and sql scripts given are for setting up a new sql database. Applying them to an existing sql database requires a slightly different approach. Modificiations to the SQL scripts elimintating references to the usernames/password/database we suggest in the scripts is also a good idea.

A data connection is a low level as it gets. Until you get that working you are really not even touching any of the code in the ASPListings application.

If you want I have no problem going into your sql server and web and setting up for you correctly.

cwilliams38301.7362037037,

ok,

IE and firefox do some things differently.

It could very well have to do with MIME types set on the server for your website. pdf probably isnt set as a mime type which can cause issues with file streaming situations.

Mime types are either set in the IIS console for your web site under the http headers tab or you can try setting the content-type header to 'application/pdf' right on the asp page the does the streaming

see this article which shows how to do that
http://psacake.com/web/gj.asp

'Specify a MIME type such as "text/html", "image/gif" or "application/pdf"
Response.contenttype = "application/pdf"
'Useful in cases for unknown file types

You would want to put the code that sets the contentype as close to the top of the asp page doing the streaming as possible.

,

Terribly sorry, but we are not software-technical.  So can you please tell us exactly which folder the database would be in.

Thanks in advance.

,

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,

ASPProtect and PayPal are fully automated and ready to go.
Accounts will automatically get activated after payment.

We actually do not tell you to put nothing in the PayPal system for the IPN URL. Something has to be there or PayPal will not let you enable IPN. We actually tell you in you PayPal settings to turn on IPN and make up an IPN url because something has to go there. (I think we suggested making a blank asp page on you're site to send it to) It really doesn't matter where you send that but it might as well be a valid page on your site to avoid any 404 errors in your logs when a non ASPProtect payment comes in.

You see, we dont set that IPN url set in the PayPal system because each ASPProtect signup script directory (single payment and subcription) uses it own IPN url and that all gets set on the fly by the aspprotect system. There is a way to overide the defaul IPN url is what I am saying.

Also:
A  lot of people already have something there and we didn't want the ASPProtect system to interfere with things they already had going on.

cwilliams38421.530787037,

The problem was in config_inc.asp. we had renamed the field in the DB but didn't change it in this file.

But we changed it, it is back to normal.

 

Thanks

,

The album ID thing is completely normal and by design. Once an ID in the database is used it can not be used again. That is how autonumber fields in a database work.

As far as not being able to delete images... Are you by chance using ASP.NET to show dynamic thumbnails... Because if you are you must turn that feature off and wait 20 minutes or so (maybe more) before you will be able to delete any of the images. It is because the current version of the ASP.NET script used to make the thumbnails locks the images on the server temporarily anytime it creates a thumbnail.

It is a known issue... and there is no fix at the moment other than what I told you above.

cwilliams38324.744525463,

Sorry about earlier post in wrong area-

I have followed instructions to set up access levels (adding the

<% CHECKFOR = "4" %>    for user level 4 for instance.) The database is connecting properly and the basic check for login is taking place, but it seems that all users have access to all levels no matter what is on the database; i.e I set up a test page with "checkfor=4" and all users have access to it, even those with lower leve access.

Any ideas?

Thanks

,

The parent paths things really should not be an issue.

This is an article from the troubleshooting section of the documentation that takes care of it all very easily.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo162-1.htm


As for a good host that knows ASP and does not mess around when you ask for something. I always recommened www.alentus.com

 

,

More Info in Case Anyone is Interested:

This bug was mentioned by a couple people. The cause of it was never really understood until I recently re-wrote some of the banner code for an upcoming version.

The fix for this bug was very simple. It was just one of those weird situations where code should have worked but did not. I added some code to do it a bit differently and it worked as it should have..

It really still makes no sense to me why it didnt work the way it was, but at least there is a fix.
