Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 2:28:56 PM

I noticed that is grabbing the wrong URL for some reason. Even when i mouse over the URL its somehow getting the users sub directory. How.. i dont know... when i erase that users in the url it works perfectly.

I am looking at the code in the .vb file and i dont see anything that could be causing it to do that... but then again i am no programmer LOL

Its obviously kicking in that users subdirectory somehow... what are your thoughts?

,

I have been working on this. 2Checkout is like the most confusing and worst payment processing company on the planet. There are things about that page I just don not understand as many times as I read through it.

Doesn't seem like this stuff is mandatory just yet. (I asked)

I should have something soon.

,



Just installed software,  when I attempt to log on I get the following error (actually this is after I moved some of the include files to user).

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0131'

Disallowed Parent Path

/gallery_admin/default.asp, line 25

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

 

What do I need to do to fix?

 

thanks.

,

you basically have to edit the html in the links in the various pages and remove them... some are in includes files

use a text editor and be causious / back things up before you remove links so you can revert back

,

Can you incorporate a secure log in within the scripting.  I would like the account information to be secure without having to have the whole site using running through a secure (https://) path.  If this is possible, the scripting is perfect!

, I have ASPPhotoGallery installed. Everything has been working great for some time. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, I am not getting the "Hits" incremented when a user opens an album. It works when an administrator is logged on. Does not for any anonymous users. Everything else seems to work fine. Again, this used to work. Any ideas. ,

After I approve someone's username and password, then go to send them the default e mail telling them of the approval, the e mail never goes through.  The e mailing used to work well for many months, but it stopped working.  Any thoughts?

,

its a text file   you just edit it with notepad..  if ya mess it up ya put an original copy back in

no biggie either way

jump in there..

I just showed ya exactly what to change.. its a no brainer man
This is simple source code. It's meant to be edited and hacked.

The only reason I warn you is so you can't blame me later on if it effects something

I am just trying to help


If ya dont like that solution why not just use periods for the first name field.. or a dash or something... then nobody will really see it

or maybe store the company name in the first_name field

seems like clever things to try without changing the code..

good luck...

I getting a strange error with ASPProtect.

 Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e14'

Unclosed quotation mark before the character string '_^'.

/aspprotect/check_user_inc.asp, line 114

If I check the database directly "_^" is the exact string for the password.

Any Ideas

I have been having some display issues with the .NET version of ASPBanner.  I set the size of the image, and I set the size of the banner and there is still white space above and below the image.  I am not using a text link below the banner, so I have it set to blank.

Here is a link to my page. 

http://www.nababaseball.com

Two of the three banners in the rotation on the main page have non-white backgrounds so it's easy to see the issue I'm talking about.

Is there a way to tighten up the formatting so that the image fits onto the page in the size specified?

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



 

, Sounds crazy. I recently took over this web site and all IT duties. User today said member area was not working. All pages would not display. After restoring some files I got the members area partially working. But I cannot find where the database sits. I am able to get in and view users in the admin are and log in as a member. Thanks.,

Chris-

A general question - Can you have multiple instance of the gallery on the same server? 

, It is not something I did when I wrote the emailing sub routines. You would have to edit the email sub routine for CDONTS and add something to it most likely. The email sub routines are in the "scripts" folder in the "emailing_subs_inc.asp" file.

I am not sure you can do that when using CDONTS though I think you can do it with CDOSYS. You would have to do some research and edit the code like I mentioned.
,

when you get back to work.. your   "redirect.asp" needs the password include file at the top of it.. or that wont work either..

and of course those pages you send people to all need to be repaired

,

ok.. There are various spots that call the end_date variable.  That is why I am asking.  Then incorporating it into the forms that have been developed, made me wonder.

 

, Hi,

ok, I am a bit confused... you make it sound like as if you are running a different version than you were when you ordered this a couple/few weeks back... that confuses me because you were able to log in to the admin area of aspprotect.net before? weren't you ?

there have been no changes to the download or the version in quite some time ?

I guess I need more information to make any sort of guess at this point. I do not know enough., Thank you...I thought I was doing something wrong - and thanks for the tip on the virtual path.,

Just wanted to say how much I like the program! I hunted for days and finally purchased a Perl based product. After several days of goofing with it I gave up. ASPPhoto worked right on first install!!!!

 

Way to go!

, I purchased the photo upload software and it all works fine, except when I
try to click the categories I've created on the home page they don't show
any of the albums I've created and designated as that category. I went to
one of the example sites at http://www.minnessota.com/users/
place_new_album.asp?CatAdValue=
and it works fine. When you click Photos(40) it takes you to the 40
photos. I'm sure it's some setting I missed or something simple. Could
you email me back soon and let me know what to do/try? Thanks. ,

Hallo,

Can I change the number of the access levels?

I want to have about 20 levels...

Wink

,

You not getting a blank page.. you getting an error. You just can't see it because it appears you edited the page background to black.

error '80040211'

2004-08-19_122127_ASPBanner_V7.3_code_banner_encode_decode_m od.zip

This is an Expirmental MOD for ASPBanner Version 7.3 Only
Do not use it on other versions....

It encodes CODE Banner information before saving it into the application variables that handle banner rotation. It then decodes that information before displaying them on your web pages.

The reason for this is SOME very complex javascript does not always save correctly into the application variables that rotate banners (even when not using the JavaScript Method to display the banners)

This way the javascript or whatever you entered comes out on your web page exactly as you entered it and runs correctly.. but there is little more processing going on to handle the encoding and decoding. But its probably nothing to worry about and won't effect performance at all.

Unless your having a problem don't use this mod. It is not officially supported in any way.

-- DIRECTIONS --

( COPY THESE FILES INTO YOUR ASPBANNER DIRECTORY AND BACK UP ALL THE FILES THAT YOU WILL BE REPLACING ))
(( SO YOU CAN REVERT BACK IF THERE IS TROUBLE ))


If you are wondering if the "appinfo_inc.asp" included has the weight banner bug fix applied to it already. That is a bug mentioned in our forums

ALSO:

(( YOU CAN NOT USE THE INCLUDE METHODS OF CALLING BANNERS WITH THIS CODE ))

(( YOU CAN NOT USE THE JAVASCRIPT METHOD OF CALLING BANNERS WITH THIS CODE ))

(( USE ONE OF THE OTHER METHODS ))

cwilliams38229.4189930556,

If you are using version 6 CDOSYS is not supported. That is one reason why version 7 came out. If you want to rewrite the code to work with CDOSYS in version 6 that is something you need to sort out on your own as I do not support custimization to the code.

, 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.
, I swapped a few emails with CJW regarding support for ASPMail.  This application works with this software.  I host my site with a private hosting company named 'Intermedia.net' and this is what I had to do to make this application work.

    1 - Change email settings to 'SASMTPMail' installed
    2 - Find all instances of the following code:
   
                If ASPMail_Installed = true then
                  &nbs p; Set Mailer = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")
                Else
                  &nbs p; Set Mailer = Server.CreateObject("SoftArtisans.SMTPMail")
                End If
    Change this code to simply:
                Set Mailer = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")

    3 - that was about it.  The files that I needed to change are:
       /users/email_password.asp
       /users/add_new_account.asp
       /gallery_admin/approve_album.asp
       /email_friend.asp

I believe that's all i needed to change.  Any questions I'd be happy to try to help out.  [CJW -- for some reason i needed a restart on the server, it's all good now http://www.iphotosite.com/galleryapp/default.asp.  I'll be putting in a redirect for that location/domain later today.

Chris,

When I set up a test user name it does accept name and passwords and the passwords are encrypted, no problem there.

All I want to do is to restrict access to the protected pages to the members only. Only those users will be accepted and allowed to view.

I have entered all of thier names, address, phone number, email and company in the database, which is still named ASPProtect_access2002.mdb and in the fpdb directory of wwwroot. To get it there I uploaded via FTP.  I hope I expained the situation well enough.

, I have multiple zone banners displayed on a single page using the AspHTTP Component Method.

However, in IE 6.x and NS 7.x each banner has some text displayed before it similar to:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0 Date: Fri, 17 Sep 2004 07:15:12 GMT MicrosoftOfficeWebServer: 5.0_Pub Connection: Keep-Alive Content-Length: 229 Content-Type: text/html Set-Cookie: ASPSESSIONIDAASSDQBA=HAICCGCANEBEPANCDHLHJJGC; path=/ Cache-control: private


This text does not appear when using Netscape 4.x cwilliams38325.741099537,

I am in process of upgrading from v6 to v7.  I have made database changes, can connect to database and get in to Administration area just fine.  However when I go to create a new user I get the following error

 

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0cc1'

Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

/password_admin/save.asp, line 227

Thanks

 

,

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,

I believe I'm having trouble with Domain masking in that it appears to affect the ASP Photo Gallery login screen.

My address is forwarded and masked by my domain "company" (in this case: Godaddy.com). It is forwarded to a Win2000 Server running at my static home IP.

From outside of my network, the website appears to work fine...even the default.asp page works to the point of the login page. After entering a login and password - you hit the login button and the page simply reloads only with all of the header and footer information removed.

I found that by eliminating the domain masking feature at the domain company, the problem gets eliminated and the entrie site works fine.

Has anyone else run into this problem? I'm guessing it's the way the domain name is held in the browser cache but I'm not sure how to resolve it so that the ASPPhotoGallery scripts and pointers work correctly.

Eric

 

 

epeterson38365.6397569444, Did you do what that thread said so you see a more detailed error ?


Can I see the site and look around.. ?
I just am not sure what is going on from what you are explaining ?

If so private message me with the admin account details and tell me what to do to reproduce the error. ,

Why all the pages at the directory .../password_admin/ are very slow to open online?

vaghelis38300.5280208333,

Our webhost changed converted all sites from c: to d:, and without us doing anything else, our customers now get the following error message when trying to access our Classifieds site:

***********

Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Not a valid password.

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=D:\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.

************************************************************ *********************

We did everything the web host asked us to do, that is, changed all references to the C drive to new references to the D drive, but the error is still there.  We also never changed any passwords (as far as we can remember).  Can someone please tell us where to look (also which file might tell us what the correct password is in case it has in fact been changed.

Editing the look of the login page.

In this version editing the look of the login page is very easy.
You can make this login page look exactly like you web site if you like.

You want to edit the "scripts/login_form_inc.asp" file.

It can be edited with any editor as long as the existing bits of server side code in it and the login form remain in tact.

The best thing to do is back it up before you start editing it.
Then if you goof it up you can revert back to the original.

If you edit this page with FrontPage enable the "show all" feature.
Its the little PIE sign in your icons. It will show the server side code as yellow things on the screen so you know where they are and can be careful not to delete them.

Hi Chris

I've just recently purchased ASPBanner and have been testing out serving multiple Tradedoubler code using the IFRAME method. I have four types of banner on the same page refreshing every 15 seconds. (this will change on the live site) 

I've been leaving the IE page up for x hours and coming back to find between 1-3 of the banners has stopped and in place is an "internal error".

BannerZone=3&Refresh=15|40|800a0046|Permission_denied 80

I thought it may have been the SQL permissions from one of your other messages so I gave the banner user the DataReader and DataWriter permissions.

Its still happening and around the same time in the logs theres a couple of file not found errors.

BannerZone=2&Refresh=15|23|800a0035|File_not_found 80 - 80.65.240.159

BannerZone=4&Refresh=15|25|800a0035|File_not_found 80 - 80.65.240.159

BannerZone=1&Refresh=15|25|800a0035|File_not_found 80 - 80.65.240.159

Any ideas? I'm hoping its not the server as there is currently only 2 sites on it and this is pretty much the only traffic.

Thanks

Colin

,

ok...

you got problems if you cant import a file created by the system..

You using SQL or MSACCESS and do any of the users data have apostraphes in it ?

,

Upgrade from V6 to v7.x with an MSACCESS DATABASE

1st of all, backup your existing ASPProtect files and database before performing this upgrade. Please be really careful while performing this upgrade. Version 7.x  is a highly advanced application compared to any previous versions. CJWSoft under no circumstances is responsible if you lose information or have website downtime.

BOTTOM LINE: (PERFORM THIS UPGRADE AT YOUR OWN RISK)

To do this upgrade you're going to need to have the Microsoft Access Application.
To work with an Access .mdb file it can not be newer than the version of Microsoft Access you are running.

That being said, on with the upgrade..

Open you're existing Acccess Database up in Microsoft Access..
You should see this something like this.



By right clicking on then choosing rename
Rename "Users" to "ASPP_Users"
Rename "Groups" to "ASPP_Groups"

If you do not have a "Groups" table do not worry about it right now.

Now right click and DELETE the Config Table.
Yes, delete it..

You should now see this. (with or without the "Groups" table)



Now, right click on "ASPP_Users" and go into design view.
It should look like this.


Rename the "Password" field to "Old_Password"
Be sure to spell it perfectly using the Underscore
It will look like this.


Now scroll down to the bottom a bit It should look like this.



Now..

If you have a "Groups" Field... leave it alone
If you do not have a "Groups" Field add one and make it a memo field.

Now, we are going to add a few more new fields.

Add a field called "Redirection_URL" make it a "text" field with 150 field size
Add a field called "PayPal_Subscriber_ID" make it a "text" field with 100 field size
Add a field called "Newsletter" and make it a yes/no field
Add a field called "Password" and make it a "text" field with 100 field size

It should now look like this.
(you do not need to worry about the field descriptions.. that part is optional and only seen when working on the database)



Now close that window and save the changes..

Your now going to open up another Access Database while still leaving the one you have on your screen open. You going to open up one of the new databases that came with v7.x. This database has some info we are simply going to copy and paste.

You'll want to open it and put it side by side on your desktop like so.
(the old database is on the left.. the new one is on the right)



Now, for the fun part.

On the new database to the right.. right click on the "ASPP_Config" table and pick "Copy"

Then move your mouse over to the old database on the left. Right click in the open white area and click "paste"

It will ask you for a database name. Type in "ASPP_Config"
Leave "Structure and Data" checked and hit OK

Your old database on the left should now have a nice new "ASPP_Config" table.

OK, now for the "ASPP_Groups" table

If you already have a "ASPP_Groups" table in your old database you are done.

If you do not have one your going to copy and paste the table from the New Database to your old database just like we just did with the "ASPP_config" table.

Your old database should now look like this.



Now, you are done upgrading your database from within Microsoft Access.

The existing passwords still have to be encrytped and moved from the "Old_Password" to the "Password" field

To that we have a special page we run in the application that will take care of that.

So, for now... go install the application, but using the database we just created.
Follow these instructions for the most part...
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=181& ; ;PN=1

When you get to the part where you finally get into the admin area and need to make an admin account you will notice that your existing user database is there but none of the users have passwords if you look at them in the edit screen.

That is normal. Simply do what the instructions say and create and admin account using a username that does not exist..

Then log off... then back in as that new admin account. If that works you are ready to convert the passwords.

This part is very easy.

You want to run a special page via the browser.

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/convert_to_encrypted.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

Once you get the page running you will see a login prompt and one form field just like before with the "get_me_in.asp" page

You will need to paste the "PasswordEncryptionKey" value that you used in the "config_inc.asp" file in the form field and hit enter.

If all goes well you will see a page telling you to click here to encrypt the passwords and copy them over.

So do what it says... dont click more than once and wait.

Eventually it should say it is finished. So go log in to the admin area of the system using the new admin account.

Now edit some users but dont save... you want to see if the passwords are showing up. If they are the conversion worked. If you see nothing or a garbled mess it did not work and you made a mistake during this whole process.

If things went well backup and delete the conversion file below.

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/convert_to_encrypted.asp

You do not need it anymore.

Once you are positive every thing is running smoothly and everyone's passwords are ok you can go in and delete the "Old_Password" field as well.



If things didnt go well.. try again from scratch and go slowly.
If they still dont go well get ahold of us for help.

We are here to help, but if you really want us to we can be hired to do the conversion.

, Chris,

Ok new puzzle. I have now managed to gonfigure it to get the admin screen and update members. All excellent news. Seems to work a treat.

But have used the code you give in your getting started guide to add at the very top of an aspx page to be protected. The path is configured correctly I am sure. the aspx file is in the root, the protect program is in a folder now configured as an application (hence the steps forward to get to the admin screens) on the root, so address should be foldrname//protectpage.ascx.

Proble when I load that aspx page is as above. The exact same config error,oww!

I am sure its a setting on my server now, but I dont know what to ask for, Any ideas...

So close now!

Andy
