I currently have 2 web servers: My local (test) is Win7/IIS7 and my Live is Win2003/IIS6/Plesk
I have the following domains, subdomains, and directories:
Those with * are on my Live server only, the remaining are on both.
I'm using abc.com/includes for lot of things, including file
includes for abc.com/admin, abc.com/cart, ..., and as virtual
include for abc123.com/cart, abc123/payments, etc.
The intention of test.abc.com/includes, however, is to serve test.abc.com/admin, which is my server test site before I launch live. I also use test.abc.com/includes to test my includes as well. All files in test.abc.com/includes are exactly the same as in abc.com/includes, EXCEPT
that in one include I have location = "test"
in the other location = "live"
which I use as a switch to connect to my live or test db.
So, when I upload file.asp to abc.com/admin - it connects to my live db; when I upload it to test.abc.com/admin - it connects to my test db - I don't have to change a thing in file.asp, the switch is in my include.
With everything said above, I need to MOVE abc.com/admin to abc123.com/admin (my client wants it moved, not redirected so he can see the URL), and I'm not sure how, especially if I want to keep my includes working the way they are?
My first thought was changing include file=... to include virtual=... - this worked on my local Win7, but when I upload it to test.abc123.com/admin I get
Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0126'
Include file not found
/admin/Index.asp, line 3
The include file 'includes/common.asp' was not found.
My next question is, why is the VIRTUAL working locally, bot not on the server (mind you- pages from abc123.com/cart are already successfully reaching abc.com/includes)? Do I need to give permission specififically to test.
abc123.com, and if so, how?
Does Plesk have a seperate user for abc123.com and seperate for test.abc123.com? How can I find out?
I realize when I get test.abc123.com/admin working, it would be connecting to my live includes. Without changing my code in admin/*.asp, is there a way of setting up, so when i call include VIRTUAL=... from test.abc123.com it uses test.abc.com/includes, but when I call it from abc123.com it uses abc.com/includes? Or, I'm open to suggestions.
Finally, is there a way to get a listing of all virtul directories?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
