Now, this works fine on my home computer. Is there anything I'll need to do with IIS or ASP.NET (possibly in web.config) for this to work properly on a production machine? Settings or permissions that may need changing?...
It will be on Window 2003 with IIS6 and ASP.NET 3.5 SP1.
I'd like to allow users to upload a .pdf file via the file upload control (if that's the best method), save the file to the db and then retrieve it so they can click on a link and open the .pdf they've uploaded. I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do this but keep running into methods of saving the file directly on the server in a directory, not in SQL server (using Linq and VB by the way)
I'm working on a web app that'll allow us to upload audition tapes and then allow clients to review each audition. I've got it so it all works locally (takes the video file I want, saves it to a directory, stores appropriate paths to the database), then when I log in with a dummy client account, everything works just fine. When I upload my files to the server, it all runs correctly, yet when I go to view the audition on a client account, it does not upload/save the video to the directory I'd like. How come when I run it locally, it saves to the directory, yet when I upload to the server, it doesn't? Does it have something to do with MIME settings? I've had some problems playing .FLV files and that was all MIME-related. At this point, I'm thinking it's something to do with folder permissions, yet when I spoke with the IT guy who manages the server, he said he gave the directory IUSR access and gave it a network service (I assume he added write permissions to the IUSR account). What do you think it could be? I have some IIS knowledge myself, as I manage a server running in my house, so if you guys have server advice, let me know.
I have started a similar thread ([URL] but i may have over complicated it a bit.Im having an issue with the virtual path provider handling static files (images, css etc). I need the VPP to handle aspnet handled files (.aspx, .cs etc) which it is doing. I also need it to handle static files which i cant seem to get it to do.Im developing with vs2005 on Vista64. I will be deploying to iis6 on win2003 so i have set iis7 to run the apppool in classic pipeline mode, and set wildcard maps etc to capture all static files (as a test). I am tracing when a request is hadled by aspnet, and also when the VPP is called (FileExists), but none seem to fire. So i have the following questions:
When using iis7 in classic pipeline mode does it still use the <system.webService> config node or does it use <system.web> for handler / module mapping? It still seems to use <system.webService> when precondition is set to integrated???
I creating a page where our clients can view advertising images and then able to download the images in different file formats. So I need the images and the different download types all saved into the same row in the database so that when I go to display them on the page when they select a picture the right download links will be there. So here where my problem comes in, I don't know how to code it so that I can insert mulitiple file paths into the database at once. The images are saved in a table called images. The downloads are saved in a table called Image Downloads.
Here is the code for the page I have it coded to submit the images to the database but not sure how to add the rest. I have got three different sql datasources for each table not sure if that's the way to go.
Over here I have created a folder with name Data inside my solution, so the Server.Mappath("Data") as well the statemet for converting assigning the src property of the IFrame I1 is working properly. But I want to use the files from a folder which resides in a network folder like
Here is what I am basically trying to accomplish I want to upload images to the server separated into categories and save the file path into the database. I have found plenty of documentation on saving to a file and the file path to a database. But, I haven't found anything that will allow me to seperate the images into categoies.
I have made three tables in the database
What I am trying to do is create a gallery for our clients to browse and download different vesions of posters and ad cards.
I couldn't upload anythink to a server using FileUpload control (access denied exception). I changed permissions for required folder and gave aspnet user full access. It did not work (I got access denied exception). Than I changed permissions again and gave full access to all users on the machine - now upload works. As far as I understand, it makes my site vulnerable and I should give full access to only one user. Could anyone tell me which user IIS 7.5 uses?
i made a file uploader to folder named (Books) and i saved the name and the bath of the uploaded file to my DataBase but when i wanna download the uploaded file from the server ? how i make it ? by hyperlink ?
I am working on some project where I am needed to allow users to upload files, but only in pdf and .doc format. Now I know how to let users upload files, but I do not know how to check whether an uploading files is pdf and .doc or not. How could I know that? And how could I know the size of each file, for the file should be no greater than 3 MB?
Also, I have alloted a separate folder for the files that are uploaded by users. I have one page that displays the links to download the files in that folder. I needed to know how could I keep the track of the folder, for the files get uploaded every time? Or in other words, how could my 'downloads page' know about the files in that folder and create links for each file in that folder for the download? Also, if I create a link of a file for downloading purposes, will the file be downloaded when one clicks the link?
I created a website using Visual Web Developer Express and SQL Express 2005. I uploaded the files including the MDF file to a hoating server.But I am getting this error...System.InvalidOperationException:The type specified in the TypeName property of ObjectDataSource'ObjectDataSource1' could not be found.
I have some code that allows users to upload file attachments into a varbinary(max) column in SQL Server from their web browser. It has been working perfectly fine for almost two years, but all of a sudden it stopped working. And it stopped working on only the production database server -- it still works fine on the development server.
I can only conclude that the code is fine and there is something up with the instance of SQL Server itself. But I have no idea how to isolate the problem.
I insert a record into the ATTACHMENT table, only inserting non-binary data like the title and the content type, and then chunk-upload the uploaded file using the following code:
code with windows application and it works in a good way and files uploaded to server successfully using text box control and open file dialog,but when I tried it with upload control on Asp.net application it doesn't work and gives error : Could not find file .......this is my code in windows application under button click FileInfo toUpload = new FileInfo(this.txtFile.Text); FtpWebRequest request = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(this.txtAddress.Text + "/" + toUpload.Name ); request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
I have made an application for some customer that I'm going to transfer to a webhotel.I want to make sure that the application is not copied and used elsewhere without my knowledge. So I have thought of stripping the aspx files from their code behind, that is not the aspx.cs file itself. But from all code inside the cs file, not the one that is automatically generated like page_load etc, but everything else. And when done, then just upload the compiled DLL file(s). Does this work? Are there something to be mindful of if I carry out with this plan.
I'm trying to use an asp:FileUpload Control to allow users to upload files (.doc, .gif, .xls, .jpg) to a server that is outside of our DMZ and not the Web Server. We want to have the ability to look at these files for viruses, structure, etc prior to saving them into another directory that would allow access to outside users. From what I have read about this control is that it will allow for files to be uploaded to the web server. Can this control be used to upload files to a server other than the web server? If it can be done where should I look for this type of functionality or how do I force it to go to https:servernamefolder name (Where server name is not the web server)? Would I have to read the file then write it to the other server?
My web application is on a Webserver that is in a DMZ .
the web application must save on the server in LAN some files, but the webserver cannot access the file server because has no right to access. i wouldn't create an account for the web server, but i would that any time the application has to upload a file onto the file server make a connection that encapsulate credentials, then the upload starts ,finally the connection closes.
Is possible with some Objects to do this type of work?
Online, I've found many great apps that upload files (images, docs, pdfs, audio, etc.) to a directory on a server. I've also found code that will create a directory with a hard-coded name, something like this:
but I want to create a unique directory for each visitor who uploads files, probably using the email name that the visitor enters in a form field. The visitors are at a hospital Website and are uploading their
success stories after surgery, including their stories in a textarea and up to three images. if this group of files went into a unique folder and that the email name would be easy to identify each person's story.
Is there a way to create a new directory with a unique name for each upload of files?
I am trying to create a templete for an outside vendor (who will be hosting that section) that is going to be doing a portion of our website. I need to give reference to our header and footer for the outside vendor to reference. I am getting the following error.Parser Error Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.Parser Error Message: 'http://www..mywebsite.com/CorporateHeadLinks.ascx' is not a valid virtual path.Here is the line of code that is creating the error:<%@ Register Src="http://www.mywebsite.com/CorporateHeadLinks.ascx" TagName="HLinks" TagPrefix="HeadLinks" %>When I go to the url I get404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.The file does exist. I am assuming the 404 error has to do with the ascx page not having opening and closing html tags. The page is referenced in our locally hosted pages as follows and works fine.
I want to run my new web application with forms authentication under the ASP.NET Development WebServer (Cassini), but not at site root "/" (rather, at the path it will reside in production; "/New").However, the build process gives the error:
"It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS. New.MvcWebobjdebugcsautoparameterizeoriginalweb.config"
Now, I understand what it is saying.I have forms authentication enabled in my web.config in a virtual directory.The error goes away when I remove the web.config, or remove the "virtual path: /New" debugger configuration, or move debugging from Cassini to IIS and manually create an application at "/New".
But it is only a 'virtual' directory in the mind of the Build System. The path IS application-enabled in a production IIS setting. Also, if I remove the web.config, Cassini will happily publish "http://localhost/New" as an application (for example, Server.MapPath("~") returns my project directory without the "/New" suffix); however I need forms authentication (an application-level web.config parameter) enabled in it.How I can avoid this build error while retaining my desired features?
The project is currently configured for "file-system" site development. This and Cassini are supposed to make it easier for my content creators to participate in development and testing with their local copy of VS2010, without having to install IIS on their Windows PCs. I will also one-click publish to my local IIS for testing, then package/publish/deploy to public test, then finally publish to production. In my mind I imagine Cassini being a very helpful part of this whole process.
