At CodeProject we spend an awful lot of time playing with room heaters, or as others like to call them, "servers". Over the years we've seen it all, some of it smoking, most of it usually working just nicely until something happens.
What that something is can be hard to find so we've created a quiet place for those battle scarred and frustrated to get a little help.
My company has developed a system hosted on WCF using SQL Server & SSRS.
For each new client we typically deploy a new server including new SQL licenses etc.
I would like to consider going the SaaS route using MS Azure, but it's rather confusing from their website to determine what I'll need.
A. Do I need to take both the virtual machine (for IIS & WCF) AND a SQL Server contract, what about SSRS?
B. Can I create multiple DB's (one or two for each client)
C. Is there a limit on the amount of concurrent connections to my WCF services?
Is there a webpage somewhere that explains the Azure packages and how the fit together more simply? Many of the links on MS's websites go to 404 not found, it's very frustrating.
We have a web site which can be viewed from the old device and the content is returned as wml for those devices automatically. It's working all the way. One day, we cannot see the web site from the devices anymore. So we try to peek into the response data from the server and found out that it's not wml anymore, so the device cannot show this info.
We checked the IIS settings such as MIME, Handlers and so on. We still cannot find the cause yet.
I know the information is so vague for you to help.
However, please share any kind of advice or guess or your similar experience for now we run out of the idea and any other hint to try out will be very useful for us.
Regarding to WAP gateway, is there a way I can check how my server is handling this or so?
Hi, I am using windows server 2008 R2. I forget the userid and password. I used many tools for crack the credentials but they are not working so is there any other way to login and get the data with out loosing.
I have a desktop PC with Win 7 pro. It also has installed vs 2008 (.NET Framework 3.5) and SQL Server 2008 and 2005 express edition.
Now I have to bring support to a number of legacy applications coded in VB6
I have searched on Internet if vs6 can be installed in that operative system and found that it is necessary to download and install Win XP Virtual PC
But another unsolved issue appeared, according to the readings if an app is installed under win XP Virtual PC, can be seen in win 7, and launched from there.
In that point I realized that the core functions of legacy app mentioned are the massive use of ADO and DAO components.
Another search was started again, related with this questions:
* Will not be any problem with having two visual studio versions, vs 2008 and vs 6, despite been installed under different OS
* In order to interact my vs 6 app with a database do I have to downlaod an sql server express edition and installed under the win xp virtual pc, despite the DB's already installed due to 2 different OS scenario
If one of them is installed under Windows 7, and the other under Windows XP on the virtual machine, then they are totally separate so there will be no conflicts.
I'm not sure about the second question, you could try connecting to an existing SQL server on the Windows 7 system, via its real IP address. If that does not work then you may need another version loaded in the XP system.
There was a patch involving .Net 4 not recognizing IE 11. So the first thing to do is make sure that the test server is fully patched. This requires a reboot of the server after the patch has been applied.
Hi friends, I'm new to the website industry and so I need advise with how things work. Basically I want to set up a website which mainly will only display the product catalogue and I would like to create an application (possibly using C#) that will allow the user to get the data from a remote database (Possibly SQL Server) and from there they can just hit publish and HTML pages will be generated and uploaded to the web server.
Now, if I setup my own server (installing Apache and MS SQL Server) I can integrate them all. But what about if I'm using services provided by others? I've been doing some research and most of them only emphasize the web hosting bits and hardly mention about relational database.
Also, how does their FTP for the web server works? I've only use putty and FileZilla for FTP on Windows Azure and Apache so would it be the same with theirs?
Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here. I would like to ask if what's the ideal internet connection for home-based server? We have a website that loads normally here but when we're trying to load it in other locations in took 1min to load. Any advice regarding this? Thank you very much.
A very simple approach is to look at the network tab in Task Manager (make sure that it shows bytes sent/bytes received). That will give you some hints on the amount of data transported over the network for your page, and consequently you can calculate the required speeds for desired loading times.
Note: many internet lines are not symmetric - upload speed is just a fraction (often less than 10%) of download speed. The office with the server needs the high upload line.
And also think about reducing the amount of data to be sent - do you need background images, background music, high-resolution bitmap images,...
1. You can get a server of your own from any ISP.
Advantage ==> one time investment
Disadvantage ==> maintaining the server is tiresome.
2. You can get the help of sites like godaddy or hostgator. They provide space in their servers for your site to run. You will be given a username and password to fully control what you are going to do.
Advantage ==> You don't have to maintain anything other than your site.
Disdvantage ==> they usually have yearly payment schemes.
Hello Friends, how was the day? When you designed a website with asp.net, and you want to host. After hosting it, can visitors access the site with mobile phone? Or you will have to rebuild the website for mobile phones?
Yes, they can. Any device with a web browser should be able to access your website. However, a website designed for viewing in a 1024x768 laptop screen will probably not be easily viewed in a device with a much smaller screen. For this reason, you should design a mobile version of your site targeted to those users.
See this[^] useful overview of how to rethink your design for mobile users.
I understand how to use the IIS AppPool\website in assigning permissions to the website folder in a workgroup server. But when I make the web server a member of my domain, I'm not able to use the same AppPool Identity. I tried DomainName\IIS AppPool\website. So In the meantime, I made the server a workgroup member.
I want to experiment with the Hyper-V hypervisor and put 3 virtual servers on it, that feed off a special share from 1 of the hypervisor drives, and I'm having trouble with the permissions. I experimented with the NLB, but was missing a couple of things on the shared disk drive.
I still haven't figured out how to use domain permissions for the Application Pool using the ISS AppPool assigned to the Application Pool on a web server that is a domain member.
I've come to the conclusion that if your web server is a domain member, your probably only running one website, so you can just make a machine account for it, and assign it to the App Pool and then the folder.
If your hosting websites, then running the web server as a work group member is the way to go. I'm not going to make hundreds of special accounts for the app pool now.
So what about the SQL Server, make it a domain member or a work group member. Now I ponder that question, but I made it domain member using SQL credentials.
Now I have the 3 virtual machines running on the hyper visor, normally I would dedicate a physical server to database programs, and separate the 2, but I'm thinking that the 2 virtual machines constitute separation.
Well no awnsers here at the moment, still waiting for an expert to comment on it.
I did figure out how to setup the web server to run on a hypervisor server core, and the virtual machines are cores as well. Uses much less memory now, I think I bought way too much RAM now.
One thing funny is that I run FFMpeg and had to adjust the core to minimum GUI so I can get the shell and scrape it for data. Didn't think of that when I set the server up.
Hello friends! Please I need your advice over this issue. I designed a site with asp.net and sql server 2005, the site has about 20 pages. Now, I want to host the site. The question is; how can I host the site so that it can be accessible by everyone within the global world? And also, I would like to be paid per click performed by visitors(how can I achieve the payment issues?). I have searched many articles but couldn't understand the flow. Any help is welcome!!!
The question is; how can I host the site so that it can be accessible by everyone within the global world?
How "everyone" does it need to be? One usually puts it on a public server (if you don't have a host yet, give it a free try with http://www.aspspider.com/[^]). Anyone with internet could then access it, in theory. In practice, you'll come across things like blacklists that might prevent your site from being shown.

Paid by "whom"? The visitors of your site? Most people do not pay to access a public site.
The term is often used when talking about advertising on a website. In that case, payments will be made by the company that provides the advertisements. Google for "AdSense" for an example

Ok Eddy. What I meant by everyone is that, the site can be visible to everyone so that they can register as members of the chat site. When they are chatting, they will pay per click. For example facebook...
Hi.. When i upgrade any web application and when i click on report/application log i get the below error message. Can any one advise how to solve this problem. I tried by giving full access to "C:\Windows\Temp" folder for "NetWork Service. But its now working for me..

I have a dedicated server with windows server 2008 R2. I have installed HyperV & created 1 VM & provided this VM a virtual adapter so it can use internet connectivity of my dedicated server. I am able to do Remote deskop to my VM from Host using Remote Desktop of Host & Remote Desktop in HyperV Host.
Now I want to connect this VM using Remote desktop client of my local laptop, which is outside this dedicated server network. I don't know how to do that. This VM has private lan ip of 192.168.137.130 under my dedicated server static ip. I can remote desktop my dedicated server from laptop using my dedicated server static IP.
What settings I need to do so i can access my VM using remote desktop client?
I see two possibilities:
- Change the network of the virtual machine to your "normal" network (that's what we usually do with our VMWare virtual machines).
- Add a route to the network of the virtual machine.
Change the network of the virtual machine to your "normal" network (that's what we usually do with our VMWare virtual machines).
This solution require each VM have static IP and I am limited to only 5 static IPs. I am going to have 20 Virtual Machine on my dedicated server. I can't afford each unique static ip assign to each vm. This is wrong way of doing it. Are there any way to use static ip of main server to port remote desktop to HyperV VM seprately, rather than assign each static ip to each VM?
Yes, I copy pasted your code, substitutuing the domain name, to he live server - but see my other post in reply to this...
While the certificate is installed on this server (of course) the domain's DNS is handled by a third-party, adn it *seems* as though what is happening is that when the original request comes in, the DNS server is requesting authorisation from the certificate before passing teh request on.... is that how it works? It would explain it, but leave me in a fix...
The DNS server shouldn't be requesting anything from your site. It's simply an address book which maps an entry like www.mydomain.com to an IP address.
From your other post, it sounds like the browser is making the request for https://mydomain.com, and then barfing when it gets a certificate for www.mydomain.com, since they might not be the same site.
Many certificate authorities will issue a certificate which is valid for both www.mydomain.com and mydomain.com, so it might be worth seeing if that's an option. Otherwise, you'll need a spare IP address and a second SSL cert to avoid this error. (You could probably get away with a free cert from StartSSL[^], since you're only securing a redirect to the real site.)
"These people looked deep within my soul and assigned me a number based on the order in which I joined." - Homer
Yes, I was afraid that might be the case. Given that it's pretty much a standard that mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com be the same site, you'd think this would be a standard too for SSL certificates. Sigh.
Thanks anyway for your help.
