Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 4:46:17 PM

Ow.
 
I haven't moved (or messed with) any critical files within the directory at all, just placed them as a job lot into a subdirectory call aspprotect.
 
All I did was put all the files directly into a directory rather than into the root because some of the subdirectories had the same name as some already in use and would therefore have been overwritten.
 
I'll go back and have another look in the cold light of day (its too late tonight UK time).
 
Thanks anyway.

Hello Chris:

Yes I'm using the Option Pack.

-Ricardo

,



sorry, I am guilty of being very tired and didnt read your message fully.

I know this forum area is called "database connection issues" but it is only meant for generic issues.

Issues specific to a particular application need to go in that applications area in the forum. It keeps the forums more organized and helps other people fnd help later on.

So please post in the correct area.
I will answer this question soon. I have to do something 1st though.

, I did not set that variable in the IPN code that aspprotect uses. It is optional.

You will want to download PayPal's IPN documentation and see what the variable is called and then add it to the IPN form code if you want to use it.

it will be a hidden form variable (one line of code added to) paypal2.asp,

If you have found out that parent paths are disabled on the web server you can still use the application.

Before you continue.

If it is your server consider enabling parent paths to solve the problem.

If it is not your server consider asking them to enable parent paths for your web site to solve the problem.

If that is not possible please download this zip file.
2005-02-20_150703_aspprotect_v7.x_alternate_include_file_pat hs.zip

This zip file contains 3 sets of alternate files depending on your situation. You simply replace your existing aspprotect v7.x files with these new ones.

The zip file contains the following folders and files.



Below is the contents of the readme.txt file which explains everything.

The following folders each have a version of all the files in the ASPProtect system that might need to be edited in case you need to change the paths for the server side include files. There are 3 different scenarios.


(parent paths enabled) - This is the way the application comes.
The files in this folder have FILE server side includes containing "../" information. While these includes will work when the applicaion in is any location of a website they will not work if parent paths are disabled on the web server. Generally you will want to use these on your xp development machine. You can of course use them on your real server if parent paths are enabled. Parent Paths are now disabled on II6 by default and some hosting company will not enable them.


(domain root)
The files in this folder have VIRTUAL server side includes in them.
These includes only work when the applicaion is installed in the root of your web domain. For example if your domain was called "www.somedomain.com" the following aspprotect files and folders would end up like this
"http://www.somedomain.com/check_user_inc.asp"
"http://www.somedomain.com/password_admin"
"http://www.somedomain.com/users"


(domain directory)
The files in this folder have VIRTUAL server side includes in them.
These includes only work when the applicaion is installed in a directory called "aspprotect" in the root of your web domain. For example if your domain was called "www.somedomain.com" the
following aspprotect files and folders would end up like this
"http://www.somedomain.com/aspprotect/check_user_inc.asp"
"http://www.somedomain.com/aspprotect/password_admin"
"http://www.somedomain.com/aspprotect/users"

You can change the name of the "aspprotect" directory but you will will have to edit the includes in the files.


Lastly, if you are on a local machine and insist on using the VIRTUAL INCLUDES you would also use the (domain directory files) even though you dont have a domain on your local machine most likely
For example if your site was installed like so.
"http://localhost/aspprotect/check_user_inc.asp"
"http://localhost/aspprotect/password_admin"
"http://localhost/aspprotect/users"


cwilliams38403.6836342593,

Hi,

I need to be able to add about 9 checkboxes to the register.asp. would I be able to use one of the custom fields?

The other thing is once I add the checkboxes the value must be written to the DB and later read when displaying the person's Album.

Any idea on how I can do this.

Thanks

 

, well, ultimately it comes down to this and this is stated in the footer of every page in the cjwsoft family of websites.

"In some cases in order to receive proper tech support your application will be need to be installed on a live professionaly setup server on the Internet. We simply cannot troubleshoot all issues when the application is only installed on your local machine."

and if you have some sort of weird timeout going on on your local machine and cant even give me a detailed error message there is just no way I can possibly troubleshoot it... I told you what to check and thats really all I can do... all my applications run on XP. As a matter of fact I do all my development on XP boxes.

It could be any numbers of things... odbc drivers, versions of vbscript... other software on the pc interfering such as antivirus script blockers like norton... all sorts of issues can pop up on personal machines running xp

If you put this up on a live professionally setup web server I can help you. On your local machine there is only so much I can suggest. , well, I think John just told you what the deal is. He knows more about ASP.NET than anyone else I know.

If you are going to run a non-standard setup then you are going to have big problems like you are having. ,

ALL FIXED.. tested with real paypal accounts and a live system
works perfectly

THIS FIX IS ONLY FOR PAYPAL SUBSCRIPTIONS

Download this file "ipn.asp" and put it in the "paypal_sub_signup" folder
2005-03-10_164645_aspprotect_subscription_fix.zip

Basically somehow an older version of the this file was in the original download archive.

I am VERY SORRY

Anyone who purchased ASPProtect 7 before March 11, 2005 should download this fix.

cwilliams38421.7018055556, After a user edit his information (name, email, etc), the session variables are not updated.  In the user_area.asp page, I "Response.Write" all the session variables, and they are still showing the old information. I tried refreshing the page but to no avail. The only way to update the display is to log off and login again.

please help.

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

, I checked the SQL table and had 1 banner with no zone ID. I added it in
directly through the SQL interface and now it seems to be ok.,

When a new user adds themselves to the db thru the registration page, no user id is assigned in the User_id field.  I can't access the page on-line due to an user_id related error on the page.  I must use access itself and add the user id.  After that, everything works as expected.

What have I done?

,

yeah.. thats an old graphic probably only seen in a few places.

it is not on the main site
http://www.cjwsoft.com/
or here
http://www.aspprotect.com/
or here
http://www.aspbanner.com/
or here
http://www.aspclassifieds.com/
or here
http://www.aspphotogallery.com/

but I am sure there are a couple of pages left over still using it like the aspvendor and asplistings pages.. etc    I am aware of it, just been too busy to go change them and I didn't consider it a big deal

2003 servers are NT based anyway

,

I am trying to protect and ASP page written in Javascript.  The first part of the page goes:

<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT"%>
<!--#include file="../Connections/connWINGAP.asp" -->

When I insert the aspprotect code it looks like this:

<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT"%>
<!--#INCLUDE VIRTUAL="/GIS/WCGIS/GISProtect/check_user_inc.asp"-->
<!--#include file="../Connections/connWINGAP.asp" -->

and I get this error: 

Microsoft JScript compilation error '800a03f7'

Unterminated string constant

/GIS/WCGIS/GISProtect/check_user_inc.asp, line 2

I think I understand that your code is written in VBscript and that is why it is not working.  If this is the case, how can I switch to VB to execute your stuff then switch back?

Thanks,

Jess

, look in the "check_user_inc.asp" file

try editing this part by hard coding the body info you want to use

 Response.Write("<BODY" & Application("BodyTagInfo") & ">")


I would also suggest reviewing the generated source code in the web browser and examining the html to figure out exactly where the body tag info you dont want is coming from
,

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,

as far as permissions are concerned I wrote two large articles about permissions that cover everything in detail on how to properly set them

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/info11.htm

see the windows 2003 and windows xp permission threads

From things you are saying I assume this is your server. My comments about the path looking funny are because very few commercial hosts would use the "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\" directory. If you are using that and that is correct info then that is fine.

as for knowing whether or not the filesystem object is working the best thing to do is to try to write  a text file somewhere in your web and see if it works. Testing something under the most basic scenario is the key to troubleshooting asp issues.

Hi - When I try the mass email feature, I get an error that says:

ODBC Microsoft access driver) too few parameters expected 1

/aspprotect/password/admin/send_mass_email.asp line 280

Oddly...this feature works fine when I use the original admin user that you setup. 

But I setup another one with my username and password (not test) - because I was afraid anything with "test" could get deleted. 

Any ideas on why the new admin userid would not work?  Note: I have not change any code from the original installation.

 

,

so use the connection string the readme.txt in the sql installation folder file tells you to... it has the correct username.. I just posted that info above

or change the username in the connection string so its rigfht

or go into sql and give any user you want access to the database and use them



Any connection strings that come in the datacon_inc.asp file the way it ships are examples. We fully expect people to edit them.

Also.. the SQL scripts primarly goal is give you a properly set up database with correct files and table settings. Users and permissions often need a little extra attention from the installer as that part doesn't always get set right by the scripts It really all depends on what sql user you are when you execute the scripts. Many times the user someone logs in with doesn't have permission to make users and set permissions.

cwilliams38325.9116898148, thanks!, 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.


,

Understood.... can you point me to a place where there are other methods of calling banners?  Do you mean not use Flash?  I am new to this and will need some pushing over the cliff!

 

Thanks

Dave

, CDOSYS is the way to go usually...
My article may shed some light on the different ways to send email using CDOSYS
http://www.powerasp.com/content/new/sending_email_cdosys.asp

As for eliminating the registration its pretty much like what you said.. manually remove the links and what not... etc etc and dont send users to the registration pages..

If you dont want people to be able to edit their info ever... or retrieve lost passwords.. you can delete the users folder completely..

though it's probably better to leave some of that stuff and just disable the registration links and page...

The paypal and 2checkout folders can be wiped out completley either way as you won't be using them at all.  , its that server, it's way underpowered when it comes to running dynamic code and databases.. and that other app is probably stealing all the leftover odbc resources..... did you try doing the import on another machine running ASP? Thats the way to go.. I am afraid I won't be much help at the moment.. I am battling with a crashed system and a lot of lost data,

Hi, I haven't heard anything from you.

Has this issue been resolved ?

Thanks

,

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,

well, assuming that function works and is vbscript not vb
(if it is vb code it may need some conversion work)

anyway

in "users/add_new_account.asp"

you would put the code for that function anywhere in the page.. it does not matter where as long as it is in code tags <% %>

then.. right under this part of the same page

If Zipcode_Postal_Code_Required = True Then
 If  Zipcode_Postal_Code = "" Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a Zipcode_Postal_Code.\n\n")
 End IF
End If


add this

If Check_Postcode(Zipcode_Postal_Code) <> True Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a Valid Zipcode_Postal_Code.\n\n")
End If

No guarantees but that is the gist of it

cwilliams38381.6456828704,

Hello,

Unfortuantely I can not help you much regarding the javascript because I am a server side code kinda guy. Client side javascript just isn't my thing. That was free javascript code that I used for that function. I really do not know enough about editing client javascript. Sounds like you might though.

Style 1 is really a relic left over from the standard version. I just left it in in case someone wanted to use it. Like I said because it is javascript making it do more than it does is tricky (at least for me)

Now,, for actually getting description code. The thing to do is check out how that all works in the pic_window.asp file which is what style 2 two uses. Bascially descriptions for an particular album get stored in one text file. We read that test file. Put the lines into an array. Then display the info which gets run through a functions to convert some special characters used when saving back to normal.

I tried to look at your site but it woulnt load for some reason.

 

cwilliams38420.0809259259,

Ok I used the following for the sql string.. is this correct?

SELECT COUNT(Album_ID) AS Alb_Count FROM " & tbl_label_albums & " WHERE (User_ID = " & CmdListUsers("User_ID") & " AND Album_Active = '-1'" & ")"

,

This article from my old powerasp.com site explains what Server.MapPath is and also why you can't use it to specify the data connection in any of the CJWSoft applications.

Use ASP to determine the Physical Path Of Your Virtual Website

As this article mentions you can still use it to determine the path, but you can't use it in our data connection strings because the data connection page is an include file and server.mappath will report back different paths for the different directories....... meaning it will work in one directory level but not another as the path will be different.

 

cwilliams38084.7454282407, 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. ,

Have you thought about language file so users dont have to go into the code to put it in their language??

,

I wonder if this could this be a FrontPage problem. I deleted the skins folder and re-ftp'd the original one that only contains default and Solid Black. I logged in and tried to change it back to default but it won't. I'm going to try making this folder a Frontpage subweb to see if that makes a difference.

The Pop-Up Javascript Date Pickers will only show up of your server's regional settings are set to one of two lCID values.

1033 which is English - United States
mm/dd/yyyy date format

or

2057 which is English - United Kingdom
dd/mm/yyyy date format

 

Many servers are set to run the default LCID which is 2048 so the banner system will not show the date pickers.

This setting can however be easily overwritten when using the ASPBanner system.

Edit the "config_inc.asp" file with a text editor.

Add this code between the <% and %> tags.
Near the top is good 

Session.LCID = 1033

or

Session.LCID = 2057

depending on what date format you are looking to use

Save the file and go edit a banner. The date pickers should be there now.

cwilliams38325.7403125,

Sorry, not really.. not without a lot of changes to the code.
the recent activity info recycles.. it is not meant to be day by day

My suggestion there would be to look at both the log files and the user activty screens...

Different Versions of the Access Database

Below is a zip file with many alternate versions of the Access Database provided to help with installation and general usage.

2005-02-20_155310_ASPProtect_Database_Versions.zip

ASPProtect.mdb is saved as an Access97 database (password "temp")
ASPProtect_access2000.mdb is saved as and Access 2000 database (password "temp")
ASPProtect_access2000.mdb is saved as and Access 2002-2003 database (password "temp")
ASPProtect_access2002_no_password.mdb is saved as and Access 2002-2003 database with no password set on it

Try to use the newest version as server odbc drivers sometimes have to use the newest version for everything to work correctly. No password version is provided because sometimes there are issues connecting to a database with a password set on it.

Default username for access databases is of course "admin" but you really dont use that except in the data connection information.

cwilliams38403.6840277778,

FYI:

The articles you references were read over by me like 3 hours ago... way passed that and prob. in deeper sh*t than i was since im trying everything possible without knowing the true reason this is not working.

,

Some users have reported an error during the registration process.
Here is what I believe is happening.

When you register you get sent a validation email that has a link in it that looks something like this.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum//activate.asp?ID=testAD3AD2 97BC

That link can only be clicked on once which will activate your account.

If you somehow run that link more than once you will get a message telling you there was an error.


I think some people are double clicking on the link they get sent and running it more than once.... or clicking on it again after registration is complete. It probably happens very fast so they never see the success screen.

Either way, if you can login to the forum nothing is wrong and you are already activated.
