I hired a couple of coders to make a sort project that works very much like how tables come out and the data within can be sorted at torrent sites such Mininova and Demonoid. In this case, the data are awards entries for an event my company manages. The project also includes user registration and login.
They apparently used ASP, Dreamweaver and SQL Server Management Studio Express.
They were able to make the project work offline, but they are now finding difficulty making it online in one of our domains.
I cannot express enough my grief over this matter, though a previous coder (vb.net) myself, I do not have time to code anymore (more on management now) and I am really disappointed as to how this paid project is coming down into my own hands.
To start, when I try to load the .asp page, Error 500 occurs. I'm pretty sure this is concerned with initiating the db connection. Here is the connection string they put in:
set connect=server.CreateObject("adodb.connection") set rs=server.CreateObject("adodb.recordset") set rs2=server.CreateObject("adodb.recordset") connect.open "DSN=dhaboss"
I'm not really sure what dhaboss refers to. The database file is an MDF paired with the usual *log.LDF. I could really use some help over this, as I'll be needing to present this project soon to my director.
I have contacted my host (INetU) to enable ASP support in my domains and they already had. Prior to this, the ASP pages appeared with code snippets on them. After enabling ASP, Error 500 now occurs.
Thank you very much for your time.
