First of all -- this really depends on your server configuration -- if such modifications are allowed to be performed on directory level (section is not locked on parent/server level). In order to disable execution of specific file extension yo need to know the handler name that is responsible for this. On each system this name can be different, especially ...

I can confirm the observation, using IE 9 on Win 7. Checking in the IE settings (Tools → Internet settings → General → Fonts), I can see BatangChe mentioned as the font under “user defined” for normal text, and the font used for serif looks like Batang Che but has different spacing. And setting fonts there does not seem to change this. I guess they only ...

OS is winxp sp3. The Apache Friends download page for XAMPP states that Windows XP is no longer supported by the application. However, an alternative link is given for this OS. Windows XP or 2003 are not supported. You can download a compatible version of XAMPP for these platforms here. It seems that the latest version of XAMPP that is compatible with ...

Microsoft has now launched modern.ie, a website dedicated to testing web pages in Internet Explorer. It includes downloads of virtual machines for testing (although not currently for IE 6): http://www.modern.ie/en-us/virtualization-tools

One good and easy way to prevent execution of certain file extensions under an specific folder is to use the "Request filtering" feature of IIS to prevent accessing them altogether. Go to the folder in IIS and in the "File Name Extensions" tab of the "Request filtering" feature, add "Deny file extension" rules for the file extensions that you want to lock. ...

You should take a look at Windows Azure Web Sites. Web Sites offers a very straightforward way to deploy your apps to Azure without worrying about any virtual machine setup. It also has a free tier, which you can then upgrade when you feel you need more capacity, want to add SSL, or add a custom domain name. Web Sites offers ftp access, but also has full ...

This is a known issue with Raleway and some versions of Chrome, it's related to anti-aliasing of fonts. This is a fix for windows, using SVG in the css /*FIX FONT FOR GOOGLE CHROME ON WINDOWS*/ @media screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio:0) { @font-face { font-family: 'MyFont'; src: url('fonts/myfont.svg#myfont') format('svg'); font-weight:...

This depends on how your network is setup. If you have a central DNS server on your network (as many enterprise business networks have) then you can add a zone record for whatever domain you wish for it to show up as. If you don't currently have a central DNS server you could set one up to achieve what you are after just the same. If both of those options ...

Particularly on windows there are some nasty looking warnings about running installer exe's. These can be made much less scary by signing your code release. We make sql charting software, with our setup.exe you only get this one warning: Notice where it says publisher, this means the user gets less warnings and seems safer. I say seems as the only ...

You need one additional thing to connect: the address of the server. It can be either an IP address or a host name. After you have the address you can log into the machine through secure shell (SSH). SSH gives you command line access to the machine. You could also use secure copy (SCP) to place your files on the machine. From a Windows machine you ...

Of course you can, why not? You only need to make sure that your current plan support 2 domains or not. Then, please ask your current provider to install it for you. Good luck. :)

Assuming that you want the uploaded files to be served as static content (or else you could just save the uploads outside the root folder of your application): Inside your root web.config (which can't be overwritten by users), use this (as suggested by Javier G., but with allowOverride=false): <location path="upload" allowOverride="false"> <...

Ok, so we have confirmed that our calculations were incorrect. Our provider was giving us reports based on the number of "visits". A visit is calculated based on the amount of time a user spends on our website. However, IE7 users might be rare but they might spend more time on a website compared to a Chrome user. This meant that the percentage we were going ...

Simple answer. You are going to have nothing but trouble with a file name of setup.exe. In fact, any file with the .exe extension is going to ruin your day. The good news is, I am pretty sure your not a hacker! (humor) Use WinZip or some other compression file application and create a .zip file with your install in it. Have your users download the .zip file ...

The fonts on various websites should offer the same experience than any other operating systems, of course they are never pixel perfect since the rendering engines vary. But with this said it shouldn't be as bad as you say it is and I imagine that something else is causing font problems on your screen, one thing it could be comes to mind and that is early ...

You need to set maxAllowedContentLength, not maxRequestLength to up the allowed upload size for IIS. the former is the IIS request length limit, the latter is the ASP.NET request length limit. Also important to know is that maxAllowedContentLength is the length in bytes, whereas maxRequestLength is the length in kilobytes. See this question on SO for more ...

For an Azure website not running in a VPS, you just need to supply a .pfx file (this step of the tutorial). You can use the Utility running on any Windows machine (including your local workstation) to create the .pfx file as described in the tutorial.

Your Mac is probably retina, which means it uses twice the amount of pixels to display things. Some articles with more information: http://blog.endpoint.com/2014/05/supporting-apple-retina-displays-on-web.html http://www.leemunroe.com/designing-for-high-resolution-retina-displays/ You can emulate retina displays on Windows in Firefox by changing the pixel ...

IIS supports header expires, simply add them to your web.config file. Examples: SOURCE <configuration> <system.webServer> <staticContent> <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseExpires" httpExpires="Tue, 19 Jan 2038 03:14:07 GMT" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer> </...

For want of a better solution, and to get this working, I've ended up creating multiple sets of the codebase onto 'fake' domains and pointing a number of the aliases toward each one. If anyone has a better approach I'd still be very interested to hear about it, and change the accepted answer.

We are a software developer and we had the same issue. Our products are packaged as installer EXEs and then hosted on our site. All our EXEs are digitally signed by our code-signing certificate issued by Thawte CA. Our website has been registered with GoogleWebmasterTools (GWT) since 2011. Initially we had our hosted our EXEs and they were being downloaded ...

Could be several reasons but more than likely that the file has not been scanned by Google. This a commonly asked question on several media sites and below is a snippet from a similar question being asked on Stack Overflow.

According to this article: https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2015/05/testing-for-windows-phone/ As Microsoft acknowledged in the past, the version of Internet Explorer found on mobile devices is similar but not identical to the desktop browser version. There are a few key features that are not available on Windows Phone: HTML5 touch drag-and-drop ...

As far as I know, the Internet Explorer found on Windows Phone uses the same engine as the desktop version of IE. I think the only difference between them is the viewport/screen sizes that they'll be viewed on. I think really you can test mobile sites on the desktop version of IE the same way you would with Safari, just resize the screen.

Here's the thing...there is only one ASP file... default.asp. Like with other server-side scripting/applications, those "ASP-type" URLs are generated dynamically based on requested parameters - so you can't do page-to-page 301 redirects easily. Options number 1 & 3 would require keeping the previous site with ASP running, and redirecting based on query ...

2.) This is a common problem for PHP in Plesk due to the security settings that it adds: Find httpd.include in the vhosts directory you're running the PHP script from and set the value for safe_mode to off. Also make sure you have enabled PHP Support under: Websites & Domains -> Web Scripting and Statistics, as covered here. 1.) There could be a ...

It seems very unlikely that Google Analytics is causing your site stability problems. The code for Google Analytics runs client side (not server side) so it shouldn't be putting any additional strain on your servers. In fact, the Google Analytics JavaScript doesn't even call back to your servers for additional resources, it reports usage statistics to ...
