Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 4:58:03 PM

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 ,

The Read-only attribute i was referring to is at the windows explorer level when looking at the folder properties under the general tab. 

ASPNET and IUSR have full access to the _database folder as you suggested - Yet still I get the permission error noted above.

,



Thanks dude, I'll figure it out.  I've been ripping apart pieces of the code to get it.  I'm in the process of pulling some things out to make functions that do specific tasks based on your code.  I actually had a lot of luck yesterday with it. ,

The ASP error on the home page has been solved -There was aproblem with the path that was including the home page file and we fixed it.

However the error on the member page remains - any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated. This is the error:

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 0x748 Thread 0xad8 DBC 0x214734c Jet'.

/aspboard/forum/global.asp, line 15

 

, humm, I am curious

If these people are employees and sales reps why are are you using expiration dates at all ? and why the renewing issues... etc etc

I am sure there is a reason but you did not explain.

it might help me to better understand and possibly think about new features for new versions in the future.,

Regarding installation in a subfolder

Though this should be common sense and ASP.NET 101 "so to speak" One thing not mentioned in the docs..


If you do not install ASPProtect.NET in the true root of a web there a key in the web config you must adjust.

it looks like this

<forms name=".aspprotect~net" loginUrl="/aspprotectlogin.aspx" protection="All" timeout="60" path="/" />

The way it comes it is valid for a root installation..

lets say you installed the application in folder called.
"aspprotectnet"

the key would change to this


<forms name=".aspprotect~net" loginUrl="/aspprotectnet/aspprotectlogin.aspx" protection="All" timeout="60" path="/" />

cwilliams38454.3830439815,

People who have the option pack have a new feature called groups.

Groups are meant as a replacement for using the access levels as they are much more powerful. Support for pages protected using access levels is left in tact for backward compatiability for a customers older protection code.

A customer recently told me groups could not be used like access levels and that 8 access levels was not enough. This is how I explained that groups can do everything access levels can do.



Groups can honestly do everything access levels can do if you really think about it.
Using groups and protecting pages accordingly you could actually create a system that basically worked identically to the way the access levels works.

For example..

You make 8 groups and assign users to them accordingly


Protection code on page allows access to groups 1-8
The aspprotect system generates this code for you…

<% GROUPACCESS = "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

In this case a user assigned to any one of those groups would have access..

 

Protection code on page allows access to groups 2-8
The aspprotect system generates this code for you…

<% GROUPACCESS = "2,3,4,5,6,7,8" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

In this case a user assigned to any group between  2-8 would have access..

 

Protection code on page allows access to groups 3-8
The aspprotect system generates this code for you…

<% GROUPACCESS = "3,4,5,6,7,8" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

In this case a user assigned to any group between  3-8 would have access..

cwilliams38114.800775463,

You should read my article on server side includes… the path to the include file must of course be adjusted depending on where in your web you are.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

You will also notice if you look at the provided example pages that the include paths have been adjusted to make sense.

If it is 2 directories down it should probably look different..

example:)   "../../checkuser_inc.asp"

It’s weird that if you are not getting an error because if the path to the server side include is wrong you should get a nasty server error.

Also..

The ASPProtect system and any pages it protects must also be part of the same Application in IIS. It’s the nature of forms based authentication. Do a google search if you are not sure what an application is in IIS.

Lasty…. If you are logged in at the time

Whether your current session at the site is still active… or you have the cookie set to remember you.

Well, nothing will happen… cause your already logged in and you will just see the page as normal.

Perhaps things are working and you just don’t understand that part ?

You need to go to the log off page.. log off… then close all instances of the web browser windows..

Then come back to the site… then see if it prompts you to log in.

cwilliams38228.9837152778, 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.

Hi Chris,

Our company has a big dilemma on how to manage the database for accounts that are expiring/expired.

We saw the function to email a batch of users who are expiring soon but this doesn't help us to complete the renewal process.

Once the email is sent, what happens afterwards? how can we setup the system so that we can renew their expiry dates or accounts without too much hassle?

The system currently doesn't have any renewal functions or to allow batch changes on multiple accounts at the same time so we have to manually edit one account at a time. This is extremely tedious if we have over 1000 accounts to manage (and we will).

If you have anything to suggest on all this I would appreciate it :)

Thanks alot
Sylvain

, Oh, to clarify the above.  We did not change any columns in your [Users] database or any other table.,

dsn-less is the way to go..
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo9-2.htm

you also need to use newer versions of the database as the odbc drivers on the server are sometimes very new and no longer work with access 97 databases

,

Christopher

Thanks for a speedy reply.  This is what I have used most recently...

ListingsConnectionString = "DSN=longreach;UID=lradmin;PWD=skipper;"
DatabaseType = "SQL"

but that throws an error of:

 [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

I have private messaged you my SQL server IP address.  I am a fast learner with ASP (I think!) but some things really catch me out!

,

Tony,

ASPBanner.NET was discontinued about 14 months ago. It is no longer supported in any way because quite frankly the classic ASP version is faster, more stable, has more features, and is a lot easier to install and get running.

If you PM me via the forum you are welcome to a copy of the current ASP Unlimited Version. It can serve banners to any type of page extension. All you have to do is ask for a copy.

Whether or not your existing ASPBanner.NET database is exactly the same structure I do not know, but I believe it is. You should compare the two if you plan to keep using the old database and make any neccessary changes so the old database has the exact same structure as the new version. If there are any differences they are very few.

,

its just an example connection string in the datacon_inc.asp file
you have the edit it to make sense for you..

 

the readme.txt file with the sql directions tells you this if you use that script

------------------------------------------------------
Examples of using DSN-LESS connections.

The "SERVER" and "Data Source" settings are either the Network Name for the SQL Server or the IP Address.
For local servers you can also use an IP of "127.0.0.1"

GalleryConnectionString = "Driver={SQL Server};UID=aspphotogalleryuser;password=temp;DATABASE=aspph otogallery;SERVER=127.0.0.1"

or

GalleryConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=127.0.0.1;Initial Catalog=aspphotogallery;User Id=aspphotogalleryuser;Password=temp;"
------------------------------------------------------ 

cwilliams38325.8980324074, 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., 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!
, Chris,

I'm setting up the subscription locally so I can't test it out until I put the site live.  I have a question in how the paypal subscription works.

1. What is telling paypal to return the info to the ipn.asp page for processing?  Is that something I have to set up in my paypal account?

2. I'd like to use Paypal's auto return.  I assume the return page would be  ipn.asp?  Would I just need to add a redirect  to the login page at the end of the appropriate txn_type if/then statement?

Thanks,
Michelle

P.S. I did finish the integration of the webwizforum with ASPProtect.  Thanks for the great headstart on that!  Will be putting everything live in a couple weeks.


,

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,

let's try this... edit that page with a text editor like notepad...

Carefully replace any instance of "Cint" with "CDbl".. I may have missed some of those when testing the last time I edited the code.

,

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.

Hi Chris,

When I run the physical map test this is what I get:

The Physical path to this virtual website is: \\NAWINFS04\home\users\web\b2623\rh.vickery2004

Will that work correctly without a drive letter specified?

Thanks

Rhona

 

, Got it.  Thanks Chris!

SQL Server Datareader Datawriter Permissions..

here is a screenshot that shows how to set datareader and datawriter permissions on an aspbanner database using "SQL Enterprise Manager"

In this example we are making sure the aspbanneruser has those permissions on the aspbanner table in the database


cwilliams38325.8002893519, I wouldn't bother doing that. If pic uplading doesn't work it is most likely permissions to the directory pictures are uploaded to. If they are not set correctly it will not work. That dir needs the same permissions the database folder needs. ,

I used Dreamweaver4 to make my site is there anything I can do to make it work?

,

I do not think it it anything to do with the Application.

You most likely have some sort of ad blocking software that is doing it.

It is seeing the word "banner" or "ad" and blocking the images in your browser.

I doubt it is anything built into xp doing it. XP with SP2 has built in pop-up blockers but no ad blockers like that really. It is norton ad blocker or something of that nature.

, 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

 


, I have found the alternate databases and they do not work either. I then went back and changed the database path in the asptest page to connect to the 2000 and 2002 test databases and it connected successfully to both of those databases, just as it had successfully connected to the asptest.mdb., You should email me and I can give you a copy of the original application., You cannot use server mappath in the connecting string of the application. If you want to know why read my article.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/physical-path.asp

Make your connecting string just like in my example.. do not use the oledb connection string either as it will cause other problems.

If you need to find out the path to the mdb file you can use server.mappath to get that info but do not put server mappath in the connecting string. See my article again.

then if the database folder has proper permissions and the path to the mdb file is valid it will work... otherwise you get useless errors,  its really that simple.

You also may want to download ASPTest from www.cjwsoft.com it is designed to show a person how to setup a working data connection.,

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.

, I am having difficulties importing new Users.

I have exported the existing list and then copied in the additional users and save the file as text (tab delimited) in Exel.

When I go to import the file (browse then upload) I get the following error:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03f9'

Expected 'Then'

/aspprotect/password_admin/upload_post.asp, line 6

If Session("Admin") <> "True"



If I upload the text file by FTP and then try to import it it only tends to import the first two existing rows.

All collumns match but not sure if I need to add "User_ID". I have added it and created consequecutive numbers.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks

Password Retrieval System

I'm trying to setup the email functionality and have the following settings:

Email_Component : CDOSYS (Using Remote Server)

Mail Remote Server: the smtp server in my Outlook account

Use SMTP Authentication: Checked

SMTPUsername: the email address in my Outlook account

SMTPPassword: the password in my Outlook account

Email Notification: sales@tradersreports.com

But I get this when I send the request for via missing password info.

CDO.Message.1 error '80040213'

The transport failed to connect to the server.

/aspprotect/scripts/emailing_subs_inc.asp, line 174

This is running on Windows 2000 server.

Any ideas?

Warren

, while technically that shouldnt be showing that with two slashes that is actually valid and will not effect whether that feature works or not.

so if you are getting an error that is not the reason.. as far as windows is concerned // is the same as slash in that scenario?

what is your error? I need details. Like some code and an error at a line number ?

99% of the time it is permissions and sometimes it is related to the filesystem object being disabled on the server or script blocking software such as norton antivirus ,

That carrot doesn't really exist in the file, so I'm not sure.

I did download and place the ASPTEST file in www.drsweisberg.com/asptest and when I try to load the 2 pages it fails to load.  I have another site on the same server and I uploaded the same exact set of files and the asp pages load.  www.klarman.com/asptest

http://www.drsweisberg.com/asptest/server_info.asp

http://www.klarman.com/asptest/server_info.asp

This is how I set the connection:

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\klarman\asptest\_database\asptest.m db;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\drsweisberg\asptest\_database\aspte st.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

, Hello,

While there is no option in the admin area / asp code we give you here is what I can tell you.

You have the source code and we also use an open database structure. (MSAccess or MSSQL) So that means you can really run any query you want on the database whether with ASP code or directly in your database.  You can even tie other systems and code into the database via OBDC and manipulate data. The sky is the limit.

In MSSQL you can run queries in SQL enterprise manager or query analyzer. Using Access you can run queries in query view.

It's really not that hard if you do some research on SQL Statements and how to use them. You can do some very powerful queries and save yourself a lot of time. ,

I have been working on this all night long. I have been reading every possible article. I have created an ODBC connection on the server.. which i have never done before? Still nothing. I looked at the machine.config file... i read about impersonating whatever the hell that is... I am really stressed out. I have the 1.1 framework installed.

I read about dsn and dsn-less connections. Is there another way i can connect to the database? Without using a username and pw maybe?

 

, I just got home from a lonnng trip.. I will try to answer this 1st thing in the morning.

CJW,

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...
