A web server refers to the software that helps to deliver web content that can be accessed either through the Internet or through an intranet. The primary function of a web server is to store, process and deliver web pages to clients. The communication between client and server takes place using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The most common use of web servers is to host websites, but there are other uses such as gaming, data storage, running enterprise applications, handling email, FTP, etc.

Hello,

I am running IIS 10 on Windows Server 2016.  I created a custom 404 error page called 404.asp and placed it in the root folder of the website.  This is my web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <staticContent>
            <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseMaxAge" cacheControlMaxAge="14.00:00:00" />
        </staticContent>
        <httpErrors>
            <remove statusCode="404" subStatusCode="-1" />
            <error statusCode="404" prefixLanguageFilePath="" path="/404.asp" responseMode="ExecuteURL" />
        </httpErrors>
    <rewrite>
      <rules>
        <rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="(.*)" />
          <conditions>
            <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
        </rule>
      </rules>
    </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>


I thought that this was the correct way to implement the custom error page but the website just goes to the standard 404 error for IIS.  Any help diagnosing this would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Dear expert

We are having problem with list component of CRM dynamic 365. Its a old product with no longer has support of MS, its a ActiveX frame based program that you add into the CRM sites, now we having two diffirent problems.
1. Chrome is not working to start the list component (That is because Chrome is not supporting ActiveX without a plugin), IE shows a frame error with red cross, however this works after you checked view content in compatibility view.
2. System is slow, very slow, its a 8GB Ram and 2 cores cpu powered.
We dont know how to debug CRM and check every lines and process with that is it that is causing those problems.
Any idea?

Hi, Please help me to approach this project in the best way possible and can be done in the shortest time.


Create      PHP      classes      for      Student,      Program      and      Course      (plus      child      classes      as      described below).      All      of      these      classes      should      have:

(1)      Appropriate      overall      class      structure;      use      comments      to      identify      sections      and       elements      of      each      class.

(2)      Constructors      that      populate      object      properties,      either      directly      within      the      constructor      AND/OR      passed      to      the      method      when      an      object      is      created.

(3)      For      all      classes,      demonstrate      proper      encapsulation,      with      properties      and      methods made      public      ONLY      if      other      coders      need      direct      access      to      that      element,      and      only      if      the      element      can't      potentially      break      if      it      is      accessed      directly!

(4)      Student      class      should      have      a      property      of      'paid',      which      is      true      or      false;      student      objects      should      also      have      an      'enrolled'      (true/false)      property      and      an      enrol()      method;      the      method      first      checks      to      see      if      the      student      in      question has      paid,      then      only      enrols      him/her      in      a      program if      so.

(5)      Student      should      also      be      the      parent      of      GradStudent      and      Undergraduate      classes;      these      child      classes      should      differ      in      at      least      1-2      significant      ways      (e.g.,      GradStudent      has      an      advisor      property,      as      well      as      other      properties      and      methods,      that       Undergraduate      does      not      need).

(6)      Program      should      have      title      and      info      properties,      minimally;      neither      of      these      properties      should      be      editable,      only      returned      for      echoing      out.

(7)      Course      should      have      basic      description      information      as      appropriate.

I'm migrating 3 sites from Server 2003 iis6 to 2008 r2 iis7.5 using MS deploy 3.5 via the packaging method.

The sites on the source server are located on the E;: yet the destination server only has a C:

Will using the below command work? I have done a whatif and can see the following lines which to me indicates there maybe issues as E: is referenced or is that reference purely to the location of the site on the source?:

If my commands won't work, what do I need to do to make the sites go to C:\inetpub\wwwroot on the destination server?

Bankrupt Company's Data Resold on Craigslist

Heads up for any members who have ever purchased through NCIX. Looks like their server equipment was sold off without being scrubbed.
This is a good reminder about letting a third party store your credit card data.

They can sell the data to any company that continues the business (as a whole)  in one part.  (restart of business with new owners)...
(that is data that will still be used for what it was provided for.... ) Data is NOT provided for anything else then conducting business with THIS company.   (If EU customers are part of the data GDPR is important here, or even if non-EU citizens did business from the EU).
So there is no license on the data for a lot of different things.

The new  owner of the data ALSO inherrits this license/restriction on the data is not that  the data is free for all after it has been flogged off... (In legal theory...,  i am afraid it will be a free for all in practice).

What are the steps required to change an IIS hosted website from HTTP to HTTPS?

Today, all of a sudden, our Web server started intermittently rejecting traffic from a partner that sends large amounts of traffic day in and day out. When we hit the web service from Internet Explorer and Firefox sometimes it connects and sometimes it doesn't.

I know very little about websites / web site management.

I used to use FrontPage to publish rudimentary websites and to back them up / copy them onto my PC to back them up.

I need to move a website from 1 server to another.  What's an easy (free) app to use these days? Hopefully graphic / GUI not command line.

I set up an FTP account for the server where the files are now. And know the credentials for the new server.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

I'm assisting with the re-deployment of an online store that gets a few thousand visitors a day, lots of traffic.  The problem is, the current hosting seems to have issues.  We lose DB connection, slow performance, etc.  The store requires a dedicated server.  What are the best hosting options?  Should the hosting be cloud based?

I am trying to put together some pertinent questions in regards to our corporate website, in terms of technology, hosting, support, roles & responsibilities etc. This is to assist in an independent review of the website by a 3rd party from both accessibility, performance, security etc. Can you suggest some relevant 'fact finding' questions that if you needed to understand the setup of a website, and its hosting, and all the various technology components used to develop and maintain the site. It is not something I have ever had responsibility for, so having some queries in order to get a better understanding would be most useful.

when you use a 3rd party to host your website, where does the responsibility typically split in terms of the technology stack on who has to apply patches to all the relevant components of the web stack? e.g. do they typically patch your CMS and any underlying databases, or only lower levels of the stack?

I have a query in relation to CMS support lifecycles. One of our partners uses a legacy version of concrete5 to maintain there website, who issued an end-of-life announcement last month:
https://www.concrete5.org/about/blog/community-blog/official-end-life-concrete5-version-6x 

The note does clearly say that critical security updates will still be applied for a further 12 months, but I want to identify the risks in using this at present. Apart from 'critical updates' what other types of support/update would you receive if you move to a supported version of the software, that they will be missing out on while still operating the legacy version? I would like them to be more reactive and rather than wait right up until the end of the 12 month period, and upgrade now to a supported release, but I need some more examples of why this is required at this stage/what they are missing out on/risks in using the legacy version.

How can we use the secondary Citrix NetScaler Server, in an H.A. pair to safely test out new configurations before the same changes are propagated to the other NetScaler?

We have 2 x version 12.0 Citrix NetScaler Servers in our environment.  They both are setup for auto-sync and propagation by default; but according to websites:

- https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX124439 
- https://docs.citrix.com/zh-cn/netscaler/11/system/high-availability-introduction/configuring-command-propagation-high-availability.html

There are commands to that can be executed to turn the HA Sync and HA Propagation off and then back on later.  At my company we would like to test out a 2 factor authentication option (during a planned maintenance window) and see how that works before it is available for all of the users.  I am thinking of doing the following:

1.  Enable the 2 factor authentication settings on the Authentication server.
       a.  Whatever it may be, that is a separate topic from this question.

2.  Then after the Authentication server is ready, disable auto-sync and auto-propagation on the NetScaler HA-Pair.

3.  Then configure the secondary NetScaler to work with the 2nd factor Authentication server.
        a.  Then plan a maintenance window to temporarily make the secondary NetScaler Server into the new primary NetScaler Server.
        b.  When I fail over the primary server, the secondary server will then become the new 'primary' server …

I have a silverlight app hosted on windows 7 and IIS, it works fine

I'm trying to move to a different box (windows 10) and its not working
I've run fiddler tool and can see the SVC binary requests are not found (404)
As this is a direct copy of the published code, I assume its setup related
If i run the project through visual studio it works fine, but in IIS does not

Here is an example of the url that isn't found on the new box:
http://localhost/MasterUI/ClientBin/MasterUI-Web-GuiViews.svc/binary/GetV_gui_TempAlarmGraph_by_Site?site=0001&ent=FFFFFFFF
The above gives a 404 in fiddler

The previous request to the XAP file works and does NOT 404
http://localhost/MasterUI/ClientBin/MasterUI.xap

I've tried to duplicate the IIS setup as much as possible, but for some reason it isn't working

My solution consists of 2 projects
MasterUI (silverlight stuff here)
MasterUI.Web (this is the non silverlight app - .aspx files)


The windows 10 box is a fresh install, so perhaps i'm missing some components, but as its working in visual studio on this windows 10 box, I assume it's IIS setup related?

If you mean what I think you do, you can set up a .htaccess file to do this. In there, you can create a rule to redirect users to a specific url. So, if they type in www.yoursite.com it will redirect to http://yoursite.com

OWASP: Threats Fundamentals

Learn the top ten threats that are present in modern web-application development and how to protect your business from them.

My company merged with another company and I needed to redirect the merged company's old domain to point to our website.
Their domain is managed with CPANEL 74.0.6

I have managed to set a redirect for the root domain URL to our website.  www.olddomain.com  -> www.ourdomain.com
The problem I have is at that of you try go to a URL subfolder (eg. www.olddomain.com/sub ) it will still go to that page an not redirect to our website as it does with the root URL.
With the root folder redirect you just need to redirect / to the other website URL.  I tried to add a second redirect with /sub and when you mouse over the link it created you get www.olddomain.com/sub but it does not redirect.

Any assistance in getting this right will be appreciated.

Hi Experts,

I have the following code which works fine for Win8 OS, while in Win7 it gives me an error, "cannot connect to the server".

Someone already helped me set this up in one Win7 pc, however now I need to move this over to another pc.

    Dim objHTTP As New WinHttp.WinHttpRequest



            Set objHTTP = New WinHttp.WinHttpRequest
 
            url = "https://MyAcct.caspio.com/oauth/token"
            objHTTP.Open "POST", url, False
            objHTTP.SetRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
        
            objHTTP.Send "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=MyID&client_secret=MySecretID"
        
            ResponseText = Right(objHTTP.ResponseText, Len(objHTTP.ResponseText) - 17)
            access_token = Left(ResponseText, InStr(ResponseText, """") - 1)

Open in new window


PS. this only happens when trying to access secured accounts (Hipaa).

As far I remember we did applied those attached last time, but so far this didn't help.

Thanks in advance.
