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

,

Is there any way to make the ads in ASPClassifieds end on a day of the week. I would like all of my ads to end on Sunday night and was wondering if there was a way to automatically do that in the database??

 

Thanks

It is refered to as the internet guest account but that isn't the actual username. The username is different for every machine. It usually starts off with "IUSR_" and then your machine name. "Internet Guest Account" is always the account's full name as labeled by IIS when it is installed.

Regardless,

If an account isn't listed you have to add it.

Click (add-advanced-find now) and it will list off all the user accounts on the machine

You can also click (add-advanced) and simply type in the account name or part of it.

Some more tips:

If on a local machine you always just give the "everyone" account full control which is pretty much going to make anything work.

You can also go to computer management in your server's administrative tools and view all of the accounts  and groups there under "Local Users and Groups".

cwilliams38417.7186689815, Can you be more specific on the javascript I should look for? Can it be combined with ASPBanner?,

sorry,

there is not.. it gets really complicated
its practically a miracle it does what it does due to the nature of the web

perhaps with some modications it could do mroe but the current version pretty much does what it does

,

Chris,

Another question on V7.  I set up all the paths as required for the extras like user pics and exports on my site.  They were working fine.  I created an export, then as you recommend, deleted the file on the site to ensure it doesn't get in the wrong hands.  I did this a few times to test it after a number of people logged in.

About 2 days later, I went to do it again and the system came back with an error saying the directory didn't exist.  I know it did because I created it and it worked fine.  I then created the directory again thinking I was losing it.

Then today, I went to do another export and the directory is gone again!  Can you help me understand why this might be happening?  I am the only one with FTP access to the site so there is no way that it could be someone else doing it.  The error I get is:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c'

Path not found

/password_admin/export.asp, line 78

 

Thanks,
Dave

For pay signups you set the groups during signup it like this thread tells you to

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo186-1.htm

only difference is you need to specify the groups info like so
(basically getting rid of the commas and just leaving behind the group numbers with a * around everything)

Also be sure to have no double asterisks

so, *1*,*2* would just be *1*2*

so, *1*,*2*,*5* would just be *1*2*5*

cwilliams38460.5969444444,

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!

,

Our knowledge base which is hosted at a remote location is protected by ASPProtect Full Version 6. I would like to allow our employee to access the knowledge base from within our internal network unchallenged. Is there a way which I can modify the code "check_user_inc.asp" to allow any one coming from say 10.1.X.X to access the site unchallenged?

Thanks,

Mo

, Personally, I really wouldnt worry about. Personal Client virus software like that is not really meant to run on servers anyway. That software is meant for client machines, not web servers.

Any Server designed virus product will not incorporate script blocking features because servers often need to run scripts when dealing with ASP, PHP, CFM, etc etc

That article I link to has more on all of that.

Turning that off is nothing to worry about. I been running IIS servers for 8 years.  ,

I just added this line to the paypal1.asp page

<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="CAD">

and it worked.  Clearly other values can be entered for other currencies.  Everything was listed in this manual https://www.paypal.com/en_US/pdf/subscriptions.pdf.


Cheers
Roy


 
, no, and none of the ASP based systems I know of can do anything like that.

A zone can only produce 1 banner at a time.

What your are talking about I have mostly only seen done using very complex javascript code available freely on the web if you search. ,

The sql script creates aspgalleryuser

dataconn_inc.asp out of the box indicates aspgallery as the user.

GalleryConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=127.0.0.1;Initial Catalog=aspgallery;User Id=aspgallery;Password=temp;"

,

someone has to do something other than me.. i've given up

if i give u the username/pw can you set this up on the network solutions host and ask them to set whatever permissions are needed?

cant do it anymore....

, Chris,

D'oh! How completely obvious!

I got it now. (In Step 4, by the way, you need to click on the web site, not the directory. The directory has its own Properties menu, which is competely different than the Properties menu for the web site.)

 Thanks for the fast response!

,

What about browser caching ? It can happen easily especially if you update pictures over one another.

emtpy out the temp files of ie (take a while usually).. close all ie windows and go back..

Otherwise I need detailed info on the problem. What you told me is not enough to troubleshoot. There are so many factors like what image  image rezie component you are using, the size of the pictures before conversion, server resources, what your doing regarding 3 albums.... etc etc

I have imported 100 pics at a time into an album on a fast server with no issues. Thats using any of the image resizing components.

If an album is new what your describing should never happen. Again, it think what your seeing is browser caching playing tricks on you. We have anticaching things in place so thumbnails never do that but not for the large images.

cwilliams38235.5737615741,

IMPORTANT UPDATE - READ THIS
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=205& ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ;PN=1

The 2Checkout Support Pack which is built in to ASPProtect 7 contains all the pre-built scripts you need to implement 2Checkout Payments with ASPProtect. You must be using version 2 of the 2checkout system. They are phasing out version 1 regardless so everyone will be using version 2 very soon if they are not already.

THIS IS NOT INTENDED OR DESIGNED TO USE 2CHECKOUT SUBSCRIPTIONS. (see bottom of this thread for more info on that)


This Support Pack basically gives you an additional signup and registration directory "2checkout_signup" and it should not interfere with any changes or customizations you have made to your ASPProtect setup in general. New users can register in this directory and pay for membership at the same time. Existing users whether active or expired can be sent to this directory where they can lookup their account and buy additional membership time online. You can also assign various Access and Group Levels during signup and you can set up various prices for various amounts of time as well. This is a real-time setup for the most part. As soon as a user pays via 2Checkout your system is updated and they will have access.

The 2checkout pack is NEW.. and was released on March 19, 2005. If you don't have it and would like it please just ask.

To start using this edit the "2checkout_signup/2checkout_config_inc.asp" file

You will be entering your 2Checkout Account number in that file as well as the URL you want a user to go to after payment. It is all commented in that file. (There is also a testing variable you can set to True if you want to do testing without real charges being applied)

After editing that file run this page.

http://www.mysite.com/2checkout_signup/show_postback_path.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

It will report back that postback url you need to use in the 2checkout system.

Log into your 2checkout version 2 account and under the "look & feel section" enter that postback url for both the "Approved URL" and the  "Pending URL"

Trust me: You want the URL there for a pending URL because the 2Checkout system is quite random and 95% of the payments that come in go to the pending URL and end up being legitimate sales. (at least for me they do)

Now make sure the Direct Return option on that page is on as well. 

If set to Yes buyers will be immediately directed to your URLs below once they click the
Complete Order button. If set to No the buyers will have to click a button to return
to your URLs below. 

Save that page... and leave 2checkout.


Now, delete this page from your ASPProtect setup.
http://www.mysite.com/2checkout_signup/show_postback_path.asp

It's a minor security risk and is no longer needed needed.

The basic setup is finished. All you have to now is set up payments options the way you want them.


Changing Payment Options

In the "2checkout1.asp" file there are form options set up.

They look like this and you can have as many as you like.

<option selected value="30,9.95,3,">30 Days, 9.95</option>


In this option... A user has the option to purchase 30 days for $9.95 and he will be set to Access Level 3 when payment in completed.

Here is how it works.

The value setting (red) is essentially and array that can be made up 4 elements separated by comma's
They must be separated by a comma and there can be no spaces. In this example the 4th value was not used but the last comma must still be there. If you didn't want to set an access level and left out the "3" there would 2 commas at the end.  etc etc
Basically there must always be 3 commas but you only have to set the 1st 2 values which are days and price.

days,price,access level,groups

The 1st value is the amount of days.
The 2nd value is the price for the amount of days.
The 3rd value is the access level you want to user assigned to.
The 4th option is the groups you want the user assigned to. (see PayPal subscription thread for examples of specifying group info)

Now, the label for the option in (blue) can say whatever you like.

,

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.

cwilliams38448.8132638889, Does ASPProtect 7 work with SQL 2005?, Thankyou, that was very helpful,

I am trying to import a file, and I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03f9'

Expected 'Then'

/aspprotect/password_admin/upload_post.asp, line 6

If Session("Admin") <> "True"
-----------------------------^
 
Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Thank you.
,

This issue came up once before and when I investigated I could find no error in the html that aspprotect generates and those files do exist where they are supposed to. We concluded it was a parsing error from the log file system.

There just really isn't anything I can do about it. I spent a week trying to figure it out. It is just the log parser screwing up under certain circumstances where there is no reason anything is wrong. They have trouble dealing with some of the complex URL/querystrings that the ASPProtect admin area uses. They think there is a 404 eror when there isn't... etc etc

,

I have just purchased ASP v7 and loaded.  Followed instructions.  Obtained codes not prob.  Get to single field login screen, enter password and following page appears:

Method Not Allowed

The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /temp/aspprotect/password_admin/get_me_in.asp.

Added folder aspprotect under (temp web) folder - temp, but also tried under root folder of web site.

Still no luck.

Chris.

After I had you install ASPProtect I added the ASP protecting code to the top of my home page:

<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<% CHECKFOR = "1" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="../../check_user_inc.asp"-->

Then I made my index.html page my login page buy using the script "Login form on a non protected page" on that I changed <form method="POST" action="memberarea.asp"> to <form method="POST" action="home.html">. 

When I try to log on to that page I get en error page HTTP Error 405 - The HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed. Internet Information Services (IIS). I checked with my hosting company GoDaddy.com and they informed me that due to the fact that they do not have ASPProtect instaled on there systems they can not support it.  In recent conversations you told me that you have customers that do use godaddy and you products. 

Can you please tell me what I can do to get this working?

Thank you for your time and help.




 

 

, I tried the iFrame method that you have shown, and it works great!!!!,

See, and that's what I thought.  What's interesting is that if I call either an aspx page or an asp page in the iframe tag, it asks me if I want to open the page, it doesn't display it.  I'm using IE6 so there's not problem with the support for the tag.

I'll keep looking to find out what's going on. I think the iframe method might work best.

, question 2 is answered best here

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=319&KW =paypal

Ok, got it.  Didn't know if there was something already set up for this that I was missing.


>>I should also mention that the paypals scenarios used in ASPProtect can not be tested using PayPal's sandbox.

Ok.  Thanks.


>>Also test using two real PayPal accounts and on a live setup. (You'll allowed two paypal accounts) then you can log into the other and refund the transctions and of course it makes sense to use low amount like 1 cent and what not.

Yeah, been messing around with that.  Got everything going except the return page which I can't do until the site is live. 


>>Also, I'd love to see what you came up with with the integration. I have been working on it here as well and took it in a different direction as I plan to sell directions for it as an add-on for aspprotect.

Ok.  Will email you with a username and password for access to the site once it's live. 

Sounds like a great add-on for ASPProtect!

Thanks!
Michelle

 


, ok, 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.

You can't do that. ASPProtect 7 does not work with ASP.NET.

It is a classic ASP application. As the web site states it can only be used to protect ".asp" pages written using vbscript.

ASP and ASP.net are completely different animals.

Thats why we have a .NET version.
http://www.aspprotect.com/more_info_net.asp

 

,

if you use either of those options the mail server info you use must of course be valid (example: mail.somesite.com) your host can provide that info

you should also make sure your sending the emails using an account at your email server.. not some other email you have


other than that if it does not send emails it could be because your hosting company may require authentication for outgoing emails...

ask them ...

if that is the case the version of ASPBanner you have does not support sending email that way and you would need to add the necessary code to any places that send email... in order for emailing to work

,

We would like to use some of the variables from the user account in our web pages after they log in (something like, 'hello <user>"), but for professional printout reports using company name and user.

Could you offer some help as to what variable string we use to print that information on logged in pages?

By the way,  the program is working great!!!

cwilliams38446.6302083333,

Dear Support Team

I have read and Installed your v8 banner software

exactly as explained on XP pro which contains other asp working app.

I have problems with the " Application " and " Session" in your scripts

things that make the iis fall dead.

also in the file asp _unlimited_config.asp

you have exlained that every thing must be kept without the "" marks.

well i get http 500 error cause of it.

 

Please advise

Thanks

Ran

 

 

,

ok, here is what is going on

you are password protecting an ".asp" page that requires querystring info to run correctly   (example - "somepage.asp?ID=3"")

that is something I never intended anyone to do.. while it does handle and repass the querystring info along during successful login it does not re-pass that info during a failed login as you have found out

this is all by design.. the only reason the system re-passes the querystring info at all is because I wanted to make it smart for the sake of the remember me/cookie feature.. so if someone was using that and bookmarked a page deep in your site with querstring info...then when they went back to that bookmark they would get authenticated and still see the page as intended with the querystring info in tact

it was a nice feature never intended to handle any situations other than what I just described...

now...
notice the url in the browser after failing a login.. then logging in successfully.. it is missing the querystring info

that more than anything is what is going on..  browser caching can cause some confusion when dealing with this because the browser likes to return you to the page minus the querstring info... when that happens a simple browser refresh at that time may very well solve the problem and then you see the page you are supposed to see...

To avoid all of this...

One solution to this is to always start people logging in to an ".asp" page that has no querystring info. That way this won't happen. Once they are logged in you can then offer them links to the pages they need to go to. (you of course still want to password protect those pages)

Another solution is to log them into a page with no querystring info and then do a response.redirect to the page with quersytring info.. thus accomplishing the same thing but without the possibility of the issue because of a failed login.

Another solutions is to do checks in your asp page for missing querstring info.. and if it isn't there do something about it like send them somewhere else.. or display a message about there being an error... etc etc

So,basically you don't want to tell people to login into such and such page with querstring info... and providing a username and password..... You can do it but like you found out it can cause an error if they mess up logging in the 1st time. The system just was not designed to handle that. There are complex reasons for that involving security that would just take me too long to explain.

I hope this makes some sense to you.. it is very hard to try and explain

,

Hi,

I can't seem to find the code where it limits the upload file size. I want to limit the upload size to 1.5 mg for all users. Also I've noticed that the 500 pix doesn't seem to work. As in if an image is bigger than 500 pix the script still uploads it. i am using Upload_post_VBSCRIPT.ASP.

Thanks

,

Access Database Password

By default all of the Access Databases we give out have a default password of "temp"

The Default username that and Access database uses is "Admin" but you should not be concerned with that except in your connection strings.

The default password for the Access Database can only be changed using Microsoft Access to do so. If you have security concerns it would make sense to change the password. The help system built into Microsoft Access best explains how to do that.

cwilliams38403.6820833333, It is common when testing a site that this happens because of the nature of session variables.

Admins have access to EVERYTHING so it is very important when testing different user accounts that you specifically log out... and then close every single browser window before logging in as a different user. This is to ensure session info from the previous user does not overlap in any areas.
(The session variable for admin access being the main one)

Under normal circumstances a user would not log in with many different accounts on the same computer this this would only be a problem for a developer who is testing.

So make sure you go to the to log-off page and log off.. then close all browser windows.. then test another user.

If all this is not the case then something else is going on and I will need more information. I pretty much know the level checking code for ASPProtect Version 6 is correct as there has been no reason to change any of it in over a year. I would have heard reports of problems with it. ,

Hi

I would like to ensure the the user uses a UK style postcode not a clue how to ensure this as I am new to asp. Any ideas?

John
