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.
