Automated Way Of Running EXE Without Dedicated Server Or VPS?

Mar 12, 2010

I'm working on a site that will offer a free service. It's a very simple site: A visitor will choose some text files from their PC, and once he has finished choosing them, he will click on the "Submit" button. This "Submit" button will simply upload the text files to X folder on the server and run a 3rd-party executable that will process these files. That's it. The exe will be doing all the work and creating a new file that the user will be downloading. This is the problem: I've found out the hard way that shared hosting plans don't allow executables on their servers. So it's been suggested that I purchase a VPS or dedicated server plan for this, but the cheapest one I found is $39/mo.

Although my site will have a "premium" service, it's mostly free, and I wasn't expecting to spend too much on hosting. As a matter of fact, I was planning on using my current shared plan for this. My question is: is there any other way of being able to do this? It would need to be automated; being free, tons of people (hopefully) will go to the site, start uploading text files, and wait for the result. I could do it manually (download the text files from the server, run the EXE locally, and finally upload the result and email the user), but that's almost impossible.

How To Host A Dedicated Server

Oct 27, 2010

Is it true that ASP.NET and IIS hosting is more more expensive that PHP and Apache? Say I want to host a dedicated server, then will the difference be that big?

- Another thing, do I really need a license for SQL Server database and IIS or something like that when I pay for a company for the dedicated server or they will pay that?

Send Email From A Win2008 Dedicated Server?

Oct 24, 2010

I know how to send email from using my pc and my provider smtp server. But doing the same thing from a Win2008 dedicated server is confusing for me. I have installed the smtp server and configure for my virtual web as explained here :


But I'm confused by these two lines

serv.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.PickupDirectoryFromIis;
serv.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SmtpServerUserName"], ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SmtpServerPassword"]);

1°) Why PickupDirectoryFromIis since in configuration localhost smtp server has been chosen and not pickup directory ?

2°) When setting up the smtp server no login / password has been asked so is the same as the computer login / password ?

DataSource Controls :: How To Configure To Allow Windows Services Running On The Web Server To Access Sql Server

Jan 14, 2010

We have a cient we are stting up that has 2 separate physical servers, one that is the web server the other the database server. Using impersonation we have been able to get the website to connect and retrieve data from the sql server so that part is not an issue. The problem is I have a windows service application that must be installed on the web server (as it process files downloaded to an ftp site) and it must be able to connect and write to the sql server as well.We tried adding a system.web block with the impersonation stuff to the app.config file which of course did not work. Can anyone tell me what/how we need to configure this properly?

C# - .NET Automated & Manual ETL Process?

Oct 28, 2010

Here's an interesting problem. I have an ETL script written in c# that I have been running manually on a somewhat regular basis. It is used to update my web app's database.

I want to automate the ETL process AND create an interface for the web app admins to manually start the ETL process.

I could have sql server kick off the ETL process on a schedule and implement a button or something on a web page that will do the same thing, but I don't want to put my code in 2 different places because I don't want to update it in 2 places when it changes. But I don't know how to make my web app tell SQL server to manually start a scheduled process. Can this be done? OR

I could somehow implement the scheduling in the web app itself, but by now most people are familiar with the problems that are faced when trying that (app may not be running at certain times, must wait on request to start a process (without some trickery)). Also, since the ETL process takes a while, I don't want to make some poor end user wait on a response, so it would definitely have to use a new thread.
