unable to login into website on iis 6.0

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have created a website that uses the default aspnetdb.mdf database for membership and I have a login control on my index.aspx page. I have restricted access to certain pages through using roles and it all works fine. But when I deploy the website to my iis site that uses the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot i am simply unable to login. It does not come up with an error it just says my username or password were unsuccessful. I cannot find why it is not working. I believe iis is configured correctly, and I have made sure all my application names are correct as per scott guthrie's blog on the subject. My site still implements an authentication system because i cannot type in a page in the url that is restricted, its just that i cannot login myself.

 Any help would be very much appreciated i am struggling with this.

 Thanks in advance


p.s if there is any part of my web config or anything that you need me to post please tell me.

>>> Open a Popup window on Successful Login if something new added to website.

Hi, I would like to open a Popup window in Parallel if user Login successfully. The popup will give updates to the user that what's new added to the website. The popup will open only once if user login. If he logout and will re-login then it should not popup as we'll assume that he has been notified earlier. I have users table with user id's. It is for information that I am working in Framework 2.0 and not allowed to use any third party or AjaxToolkit. Therefore javascript or any other technique will resolve the issue. Any idea with coding example would be helpful.

Unable to login

 Hi everyone. I am struck with this simple configuration problem that just doesn't let me login to my application.  I have a project to which I added a simple login page with an ASP.NET login control on it. Then I configured the web.config to add connection strings /membership settings etc. I used the ASPNet_regsql.exe tool to point to my database instead of the default. Then I used the ASP.NET website administration tool to create few users. But when I try to login, I get an error---- "Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again." I see the users that I created in the membership table of my database. In the provider tab, when I go for advanced settings (Select a different provider for each feature (advanced)), I see both  MySqlMembershipProvider. When I click "Test" it works fine (successfully connects to the DB).However, in the "Select a single provider for all site management data", I do not see my default provider. Can anybody please help me with why my login page isn't working? It should be pretty simple but I can't figure out why it isn't working. Here's my web.config: ( I replaced the actual server and DB names with generic names)   <configuration>      <connectionStrings>      <add connectionString="Data Source=ServerName\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;In

Login from another domain to my website


Hello every one and thanks in advance any help is much appreciated.

I have a small website that uses the asp login control and now i want to allow a user login from another website that i have. The problem is the other website is only html not aspx and i'm not sure how to write the form to login. here is the login i'm currently using:

  <asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server" onauthenticate="Login1_Authenticate" Width="235px">
                                        <table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse:collapse;">
                                                    <table border="0" cellpadding="0">
                                                            <td align="center" colspan="2">
                                                                Customer Login</td>

Password protecting entire website (that already has a login feature)?



I have a website that's still in development however I've placed it up onto our new domain name to allow a few others to see what's going on with the site development.

I want to prevent anyone else from coming in to see the site just yet however, so I want to have the site redirect to a login whenever you try to hit any page within the site.  Here's the problem though....my website already has it's own login included as part of the website in order for a member to get to their account info.  So I essentially want 2 separate logins: 1 just to see the site and a 2nd one as part of my overall website user account details section.  My concern is if I develop this new login to block users to see the site, my other login may experience issues.

How can I create this login to protect my entire site while still in development and yet keep login credentials separate from my actual website's login feature?  Or even better yet, is there some 3rd party tool I can implement to do this for me?


Can't login to website from Visual Studio 2010


I created a local copy of my website, so I could work on it in Visual Studio 2010. I am using a SQL membership provider that is running on discountAsp.net's SQL Server 2008 R2. The website works fine online, but when I run the website from Visual Studio, I can't log in. It's strange because if I open up my website in Visual Studio I can still use my admin pages to add and delete users, view users info, change passwords, etc., but I just can't get authenticated. This just makes it hard to test my pages that are restricted to certain users and roles.


Anybody know what this might be? Thanks in advance.

ASP.NET Website Login


Hi All,

   I am using the Login Object with ASPNETDB. Very strangely, a user account will no longer be allowed to login. It returns an error message that the "login attempt was not successful". If I recreate the account in the database, it will work again. Any ideas what is going on? Looks like the user account gets corrupted.


Thank you in advance,

Restrict login access to website from specific machine


Not sure if this is the correct forum section but I need to restrict access to my website by physical PC.  When a user signs up I want to be able to restrict access to one machine for that account so it cannot be shared round, if, for example, somebody else in the same office wanted to access the system on their PC they would need a seperate sign in.

I have done some investigation and I "think" the only way is installing an ActiveX component (which isn't an issue that is restricts to IE only) and then read the users MAC address.  Am I trying to over complicate things or is that the only way?  I realise that MACS can be spoofed but this is not much of an issue.

Unable to crawl External Website for indexing


I have been trying to add an external site to crawl on our SharePoint 2010 site for a few days now and keep recieving the same error with nothing getting crawled.  Error in Crawl Logs says...

"Item not crawled due to one of the following reasons: Preventive crawl rule; Specified content source hops/depth exceeded; URL has query string parameter; Required protocol handler not found; Preventive robots directive."

To set it up I went to CENTRAL ADMIN > SEARCH SERVICE APPLICATION > CONTENT SOURCES and added the URL of the site I wanted to crawl.  This is actually the first time I have set something like this up so not even sure I am doing it correctly.

I thank you in advance for any help with this problem!

Also the external site does not have any permissions set up.  Let me know if you need anymore info.  Thanks again!

Unable to login to express 2008 remotely

Creating Website for app causes login authenticaiton not to work


I have an ASP.NET application that uses the security created by an aspnetdb database.   The application works OK when it is running under the default web of IIS.   But I am working with my Network group and we are trying to create a simpler url for the application.  The network group asked that I create a Website for the application.  I did this in IIS 6.0 and I have the website point at the folder where the application resides.   But now the login dialog does not work right.  When I try to login using the new Website that application gives off an message that the password or login is incorrect.  This seems to be a configuration problem with the new website.  Perhaps that authentication database does not match the application name correctly.   How can I configure this new website so that the login dialog works OK.  It still works when I run the application from the old web located under the Default Web Site.  Any suggestions.

Thanks in advance,  Ed
