Problems with saving web files to site
Posted on 2000-04-10
I have had an ongoing problem when it comes to saving various files to a web site, but now I need to find a solution : ) In the past I have run a database and asp pages off of my site, the problem was whenever someone came to the site and went to the asp pages, the database was 'locked' and you could not write or save to it. It continued to be locked for a few minutes after someone accessed the page. Now the same thing has happened with plain o' htm files. If someone, anyone in the world, has the file open, then the person that needs to update it or save to it can not write to it. The program that they are using to write to the html page comes back saying that a permission error has occurred, although permissions are set up correctly. I am suspisious of some sort of 'caching feature' in IIS on the web site side that may be causeing this, if anybody know ifs IIS automatically does this.
I am running IIS on NT 4, users contect to the web site through a shared folder through a LAN. Proxy server is also running on the same machine and it is used for access to a T1 by about 250 computers.
