Configuration :: Configuring Original Settings For New Website Based On Site Files From 1st Website & Password Q
Oct 19, 2010
I want to make a 2nd website and am using a copy of the site files from my 1st site built for me, I added them via FTP to the hosting company. I realise when I edit the new site via the CMS it is editing both sites plus when I try to change anything to the CSS file I get the following error -
So my questions are what do I need to change to be able to deploy a new site with the files I have to make a new site?I also don't understand where the password is coming from, I can see the User ID comes from the database. in the Asp.net connection strings are the following:
site Data Source=sql7.hostinguk.net;Initial Catalog=***;User ID=***;Password=*** - Where is this password coming from?
membership Data Source=sql7.hostinguk.net;User ID=***;Password=***;persist security info=False;initial catalog=***;
I have finally designed the school portal. I am having another challenge now. I have created the recover password page. But when it comes to clicking submit I recive error. How do code this so that the password will be sent to my members email.
I wish to keep the site settings like ProductsPerpage, SiteName, MaximumFileUploads etc in web.config file I wish to add a "Change Settings" form in the web site in order to change settings. Is it a standard method to access and edit the system.config file programmatically for changing site settings? Else what should be the good approach I should follow?
I am using AJAX in some pages. this causing my website to grow. 300K is ajax. I would like to lower this to a normal size so the site can be loaded quicly.I have IIS7 and I already have encription for files. What else should I do to handle this problem?
I have a .net website that I've built but here's the catch - when it's deployed I don't know whether it will be deployed to the root of the site or to a sub folder of a larger site (and it needs to be able to move around between places)
And - here's the important bit - we will have zero access to IIS on the live server so this just has to run straight away.
So far I've managed to find work arounds for things like paths to resources but I now need to use a 3rd party component (.dll).
Normally this would go in the bin folder and, if I run my site in the root of the website it works fine but, as soon as we move the site to a sub folder, the reference to the 3rd party component wont work.
Now - I know normally you'd suggest creating a virtual directory under IIS but remember - I HAVE NO ACCESS TO IIS.
So - is there a way to still use 3rd party components in my project and have my project all run in a sub folder of a website?
And no - I can't move just the bin folder to the root of the site - it all has to sit within its own folder.
Our site as it exists now utilizes only the bin file. We are going to re-migrate our site to use the .cs files to compile on the fly. What settings do I need to set to allow for this and what disadvantages if any are there for using the .cs files in prod?
We currently have two web servers that are load balancing a website. Each server at the moment has its own copy of the site on their own hard drives. We have recently installed a SAN thats accessible by both servers so what I would like to do is move the website files on to the SAN for easy management of upgrades to the site. What steps should I take to ensure this works correctly with IIS7 and the web.config files and possibily machine.config files. For additional information the web.config's on each server is currently encrypted, how would I be able to achieve this with a SAN?
When I have a HttpHandler class in C#/ASP.NET mapped to a file extension in IIS any file with that extension fails to download/display in web browsers (it's downloaded as a 0-byte file in some browsers and nothing at all in other browsers). After removing the application mapping for the HttpHandler in IIS so it doesn't call the IHttpHandler class in C#, the web browser downloads the file successfully.
This was tested with an IHttpHandler class in C# that has an empty ProcessRequest method.
I have subdomain "s1" which points to "a" folder. I want to know how could I access to files stored in "b" folder form subdomain "s1". My issue is that files I have some html content which saved in DB Records and their path are base on webroot i.e. "<img src="/b/movie1.avi" /> .Could any one tell me how I could show these files via subdomain "s1"
since installing VS2010 I have problems with configuring membership. Using a online sql database what I prepared with the aspnet_regsql tool tables are there connection string is ok! when I open the ASP net config tool, I do not manage to select the membership provider. Underneath my web config file. can sombody tell me what is wrong??
In IIS 7.5 i configured my asp.net website for "http,net.pipe" in "Enable protocols".
net.pipe configuration is done to call another module within the website (SOA). Every thing worked fine with simple asp.net & net.pipe service invocation calling other module. But When i try to call RIA service from silverlight 4 i get the following error
The provided URI scheme 'net.pipe' is invalid; expected 'http'. Parameter name: context.ListenUriBaseAddress
How can i configure my website to work in http & net.pipe configuration ?
I've been thinking about this for a couple days but still would like some feedback on the best way to go about this:
I have multiple sites (domains) that will be running the same code. However, there are a couple settings I have in the appsettings web.config file which are relative to each site. (ie: defaultSiteTitle, emailFromAddress, etc).
I would like to deploy this application in only one location (folder) and point the domains in IIS to that one directory.
To do this, I believe I cannot use the web.config file to hold these settings...
So, I decided to make a SiteSettings.xml file and load the site settings in there:
<sites> <oSite domain="abc.com" defaultSiteTitle="This is Site ABC" emailFromAddress="firstname.lastname@example.org" /> <oSite domain="xyz.com" defaultSiteTitle="This is Site XYZ" emailFromAddress="email@example.com" /> </sites>
So when I need to access the site settings I just call a function in my datalayer that reads this xml file and via the httpRequest I pass it it determines which site settings to use.
Okay, that works when I call it from a page where I have the httpRequest...
Howver, now when I'm into some business layer functions say sendEmail and I need to find the emailFromAddress from the SiteSettings.xml file, I don't have the httpRequest. I know I could probably hack something together and pass it someway...
But I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this...
I don't really want to store it into session.
Is it possible to tell IIS what web.config file to look at, if I had multiple web.config files? (I don't think this is possible).
I've a solution which consists of a web project and a class library project. The web project solution directly references a wcf service. There is a 2nd wcf service, but it is the class library project which directly references it. I'm adding the class library (output) as reference to my web project.
Hence in my web project's web.config I now have two scf services configured. This process was easy since I had manually copied the app.config (system.serviceModel part) directly to the web.config, and then configured the web project to talk directly with another wcf service (directly, not through any dlls).
My web project needs to talk to a 3rd web service (asmx). Again I plan to bring this as a class library and include the dll into my web project. (This is a separate solution). When I took a look at this particular class lib project's app.config, I thought i just copy those necessary sections and merge it correspondingly with my current web.config.
So for the 3rd class lib project (which references the asmx service) I happened to notice that it had, under the bindings node, a node called basicHttpBinding, and next, a customBinding. Then further under the client node, there were two endpoint nodes which had the service attributes. (I don't understand why there should be two end points here first of all).
So I copied what came under the bindings node (from the 3rd class lib prj app.config) and appended it to the bindings node (in the web.config). I did a similar process for copying the end points too. But now when I try run the web site I get an exception which halts at the time of initializing the soap client (asmx service): it says something like its not able to determine the endpoint for this contract.
The web.config before I add the asmx web service looks like this:
I'm trying to run a website (site2) that I've placed inside a folder (dir-site2) of another website (site1). The default file of site2 displays fine in every browser on my local computer, as in when I type http://localhost:45912/www.site1.com/dir-site2/default.aspx. But when I upload everything to my host's server and type this
http://www.site1.com/dir-site2/default.aspx I get a server "can't access" error message. I can't display any file that is inside the subdirectory, dir-site2.
Am running asp.net web application.I need to modify the appearance of my web page..I want to bring a table that contains some labels and textbox to the centre of the page..I changed the align to centre..it is not working...i changed the padding pixels which is in default...it is also not working out...i feel CSS in not applying.
This is a general question and is not about any particular issue that I am facing right now.As configuration settings in the child level can override the ones in parent level,errors can occur when you have 2 web.config files one redefining configuration settings that you cannot override such as authentication or session state.Issue happens when you have authentication / session state set on the lower level web.config and also in higher level web.config. Is there any other configuration settings like these ?
Question: Suppose my browser language is Swedish(sv-SE) then this code will run because it find CurrentUICulture and CurrentCulture values as sv-SE.
Now if suppose browser language is Swedish(sv) only, in that case values will be set as
CurrentUICulture = sv; and CurrentCulture = sv-SE
Now the problem is that user can able to view all text in Culture neutral resource file that i kept as english while all decimal saperators, currency and other will be appear in swedish. It looks confusing to usr.
What would be right approach. I am thinking following solution.
1. i can create extra resource file for sv also. 2. I check value of CurrentUICulture in base class and if it is sv then replace it with sv-SE
Please correct me which one is right approach or Is there any other good way of doing?
I have created .msi and .exe installer for one website. I now want to install this on Windows server 2003 with IIS 6. As the installation is on a already existing site on IIS I want the installer to remove all the exisitng files but retain the IIS settings of the already existing site(such as default document and directory security).
