Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    started a topic Port 80 Port 443 and the default URL

    Port 80 Port 443 and the default URL

    I have been running two instances with separate configuration files for quite some time now but after installing AS for IIS I seem to have an issue that I never did before and I cannot solve it.
    I have TWO instances running of the regular AS server - latest official build.

    One instance is on port 80 - (my website built in WebPlus is in the folder the cfg file uses for port 80)
    One instance is on port 443 - (my application built in AA is in the folder the cfg file uses for port 443)

    So the content of each is served from a different folder and each contains separate cfg files.
    You can view the contents from the port 80 instance here - this is my IP address.
    http://184.172.107.2:80
    So what that tells me is the instance of AS server is still there working from the correct unaltered cfg file, however, if you enter simply "www.nwcopro.com" you will automatically get directed to port 443 - this has been working for quite some time as expected.

    Before if you entered www.nwcopro.com into your browser you would get the content from the port 80 folder as evidenced by the IP with the port since it is still obviously working and serving the content.

    If you entered https://www.nwcopro.com you would get the content served from the "443 folder" and config as per the instance referencing port 443 - this still works as expected - the MAJOR PROBLEM that I have now is if you go to www.nwcopro.com you get automatically sent to the secure instance...

    Can ANYONE explain how I can go back to the way it was? I did not change the config files and they are both pointing to the correct folders.
    Also IIS is NOT running so I do not think it has anything to do with it - but something has changed in the way the domain resolves.

    Oddly this IP
    http://184.172.107.2:443 does not resolve at all

    What I want is for http://www.nwcopro.com to go to my instance on port 80 and https://www.nwcopro.com to go to my application served on port 443.
    As I said this has been working fine, I can't figure out what happened. I did not edit my config files or change the setup other than attempt to install IIS - but again I made sure that is not running. I cannot run IIS until I move user created columns from the security tables.

    Many thanks to anyone with a solution.
Working...
