    Member Login Page w/.asp

    I have Dreamweaver MX which I've used to create my website. Now I want to add a members only area to my website so I pulled a project/lesson from my Dreamweaver MX book and that uses .asp and DNS-less connection to an Access Database. The first page is a login page that looks in the database to see if the info passed is present in the database - if true - it takes me to an "Add User" page so I can enter new user/password combinations. For some reason, the information won't write to the database and instead of getting redirected to the page telling me I failed - I get a 500.100 error. grrrrr I've fought with this for several evenings now (I work a day job) and no luck. The bright side is, I guess if I just update the database locally in access and upload a new copy that would work - but it sure would be nice to be able to administrate it from anywhere by anyone through the webpage to add users so that they don't have to even have Access or know how to use Access.

    Anybody got any hints for me on sources - either books or online resources etc.?

    Cheers!

    It's hard to say without knowing the specific error. A few suggestions - check your browser settings to make sure that Friendly HTTP Errors are disabled. This will show you the full error text so you can troubleshoot. Also, a common error is to have the database in a folder that does not have write permissions (at the Windows-level) for the anonymous IIS user (typically IUSR_<MachineName>. Just be sure that you've followed the instructions with your lesson explicitly.

    Another point is that it's good practice to keep the Access database in a folder outside of your web folders. Otherwise, a savvy user (hacker) could download your entire database assuming he/she entered the correct path.

    As far as additional information, there is a wealth of information on Classic ASP out there. Just Google for "ASP" and the specific term you need.

    Hope this helps
