Visual Studio 2013 Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How Visual Studio 2013's Editor Eliminates Parentheses Pain

clock January 7, 2014 10:02 by author Mike

Visual Studio 2013 is New versions of Visual Studio usually coincide with updates to the .NET Framework and one of our biggest releases yet. It comes purpose-built to help you thrive in an environment in which ideas are at a premium and speed is of the essence.

With Visual Studio 2013, even the little improvements can make a big difference in your work. Keep up your rhythm going with automatic bracket completion and keyboard shortcuts for moving lines and blocks of code.

Visual Studio 2013 has been out in preview since Microsoft’s BUILD conference last month. One simple but useful feature that has been added? Whenever you type in an opening parentheses (whether it’s curly or a regular bracket), its matching counterpart is automatically added.

As the Visual Studio blog points out, this option already existed in the Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools add-on, but is now part of the core product. Called ‘Auto Brace Completion’, it is language sensitive, and covers more than parentheses; in C++, for instance, it adds semi-colons for class types.

Hit the blog post for details of some of the other auto-complete features built into Visual Studio 2013, including a handy 'Peek Definition' feature for viewing definitions without leaving your code. Right now that’s a view-only feature, but Microsoft says it is working on adding edit options for the final release.



Visual Studio 2013 Hosting :: What’s new in Visual Studio 2013?

clock December 12, 2013 05:47 by author Mike

Visual Studio 2013 is New versions of Visual Studio usually coincide with updates to the .NET Framework and one of our biggest releases yet. It comes purpose-built to help you thrive in an environment in which ideas are at a premium and speed is of the essence.

This post lists out the ASP.NET features that you get when you create a project in VS 2013 and a brief introduction about them. Visual Studio 2013 allows you to work interactively with the rendered page markup, fully integrated with the source code that rendered it.


From the .NET developer's perspective, highlights include:

  • Automatic binding redirection support
  • LOH compaction
  • EventSource improvements
  • Better overall performance.
  • 64bit Edit and Continue
  • Better async debugging
  • Call stack visualization
  • Editor improvements
  • Enhanced scrollbar functionality
  • Inline Viewing of definitions
  • Better XAML design time support
  • New Team Explorer home page. It’s a bit more visually appealing and provides access to things like your web based task board. But, my favorite thing of all, is that it includes the list of solutions in your workspace. This gives you an unbelievably nice “home” from which you can navigate to whatever you are looking for. So, as soon as you connect to your Team Project, you can just click on the solution you want to work on and switch between them easily.

love Visual Studio 2013

In addition to the next round of improvements to our web based test case management solution, today Microsoft introduced a preview of a brand new service –cloud load testing. Since VS 2005, Microsoft supported Load Testing. It allows you to validate performance, scale and reliability of your server apps. However, you have to set up and configure your own infrastructure to run load tests. With our new Team Foundation Service based load test solution, you can now load test your apps without configuring any infrastructure. Just use Visual Studio Ultimate Edition to create a load test and point it at Team Foundation Service and soon you have load test results for your application. It is going to be particularly valuable for people building Azure applications who want to verify the scalability of their apps before opening them to a broad user base.

why to love Visual Studio 2013

In my personal opinion it is very useful feature, because right now in 2012 Visual Studio load and perfomance testing so painful and lie gonna be a bit easier after this feature is available. We are using load testing in Azure and it is very nice to find bugs and optimize our projects in further.

Visual Studio 2013

To run a cloud based load test on Team Foundation Service, just create/record a load test and choose the option in your test settings.It keeps getting better. Scott Hanselman for an update on next version of Visual Studio 2013. New ASP.NET dialog, amazing CSS3 support, new scaffolding engine, ASP.NET MVC 5, Web API 2, Web Forms, SignalR 2, and also learn about OWIN, ASP.NET identity improvements and much more!

I am hoping that this post would be a starting point to learn about the new features and then you can drill down into the details of these features.



ASPHostPortal.com Windows Hosting Support WordPress 3.7.1

clock December 4, 2013 05:55 by author Mike

WordPress 3.7.1 is in development including much requested features and fast on the heels of the 3.6 release. There are some great changes in store for WordPress users soon, but most will not be visible changes for website visitors. WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) that can be used for anything from a personal blog to a full business site.

WordPress 3.7.1 can be upgraded to (or installed) using any of Installatron's products. Use Installatron's optional Automatic Update feature to automatically apply WordPress updates as new versions are released, or use Installatron's Clone feature to duplicate an existing WordPress install to test the 3.7.1 upgrade prior to applying it live.

WordPress 3.7.1 Features
The features listed below are the main attractions of this new version of WordPress:

  • Automatic updates - This is perhaps the most anticipated feature of WordPress 3.7.1 now, whenever an update is available, WordPress will automatically update your current version. Automatic updates will save a lot of time for a number of individuals. However, individuals who do not want this feature will have the option to turn it off.
  • New Password - This meter will encourage people to choose stronger passwords that the previous version’s meter did not really do.
  • Language Packs Feature - New language packs have been introduced to support other languages better.
  • New WordPress search - This option allows the search to be more efficient than ever before.

Reasons to Use WordPress 3.7.1
This release features some of the most important architectural updates we’ve made to date. Here are the big ones:

  • Updates while you sleep - With WordPress 3.7.1, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
  • Stronger password recommendations - It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7.1 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
  • Better global support - Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7.1 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.


IIS Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Checking and Setting up the Correct Permissions on the IIS Server

clock December 3, 2013 10:56 by author Mike

If you are using an Classic ASP, ASP.NET or PHP application on a Windows Server that requires that you write data or upload to a folder then you will need to check and if necessary change the permissions on the server so that you have write as well as read permissions on the directory and files you wish to write too.


To check or change the permissions on the server go to Windows Explorer and do the following (for NT and Win 2K users only using NTFS file system, Win XP Pro users see note at bottom):
1. Right click on the directory containing the database or text file.
2. Click on 'Properties'.
3. Choose the 'Security' tab form the dialog box window.
4. Uncheck 'Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object', from the bottom of the dialog box.
5. Next, click on the 'Add' button at the top left of the window.

Security Properties Dialog Box

6. Next the 'Select Users or Groups' dialog box will open, highlight 'IUSR_MyComputer' account from the list by clicking on it. Where 'MyComputer' is this will be the name of your computer. 'IUSER' is the Internet Guest Account setup by default when IIS is installed on the system.

Select Users or Groups Dialog Box

7. Next click on the 'Add' button in the middle left of the dialog box. You should then see 'MyComputer\IUSER_MyComputer' appear in the box in the bottom half of the dialog box. Again where 'MyComputer' is will be the name of your computer.
9. Now click on the 'OK' button at the bottom right of the 'Select Users or Groups' dialog box.
10. You should now be back at the 'Security Properties' dialog box where the top box should now contain the 'Internet Guest Account (MyComputer\IUSER_MyComputer)'.
11. Highlight the 'Internet Guest Account (MyComputer\IUSER_MyComputer)' by clicking on it in the top box.
12. Select 'Read' and 'Write' permissions for this account by checking the boxes at the bottom of the window (If you are not to worried about security you could check all the boxes to make sure that you have no problems with permissions).

Security Properties Dialog Box

13. Next repeat all the steps above on the database or text file itself, to make sure the database or text file also has the correct permissions.

Windows Server 2012 Hosting - How to set up an Internal SMTP Service for Windows Server 2012 Essentials

clock October 31, 2013 07:26 by author Mike

Windows Server 2012 Essentials does not come with Microsoft Exchange Server as its predecessor Small Business Server 2011 did. However, many small businesses still use a copier or multifunction device that has the ability to scan to email. Some units also allow a fax to email forwarding service. Unfortunately, many of these devices rely on some form of internal SMTP service to enable them to relay emails to recipients.

 

 

Fortunately, you can enable a SMTP service that is built into the core operating system for Windows Server 2012. Here how to do this.


Install the SMTP Service

  1. Launch the Server Manager. From the Search charm, type in Server Manager to find it.

     

  2. From the Dashboard, Add Roles and Features. The Add Roles and Features Wizard will begin. Click Next on the first screen.

     

  3. Select Role-based or feature-based installation.

     

  4. Select the Essentials Server (which should be highlighted by default).

     

  5. Click Next to bypass the Roles selections.

     

  6. Scroll down the list and tick the SMTP Server feature.

     

  7. A new window will pop up to inform you that some other services will also be installed. Click Add Features to confirm and continue. Click Next to continue past the features selection screen.

     

  8. Click Install to complete the Installation.

     

  9. Click Close when the installation has completed.

     

Configure the SMTP Service

  1. From the Search charm, type IIS. Hover your mouse over one of the selections, and run the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Manager.

     

  2. Click Yes to the UAC Prompt.

     

  3. Expand to SMTP Virtual Server #1, right click and select Properties.

     

  4. General Tab: Set the IP Address to the server’s IP address.

    Note: You can also enable logging is required.

     

  5. Access Tab: Set the IP for the internal devices in the connection button.

     

    Add the same IP to the Relay list.

     

  6. Delivery Tab: Set an external domain – you can use the free customised domain from Microsoft, and you can also optionally add a Smart host, if required. Tick the Attempt direct delivery box, if you want the server to attempt to deliver the email directly first before trying the Smart host.

     

  7. From the Search charm, type Firewall to locate and run the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security console.

     

  8. Add a new Inbound Rule. (Right Click on Inbound Rule, and select New Rule)

     

  9. Select Port.

     

  10. Type in 25 as the local port.

     

  11. Click Next (Allow the Connection).

     

  12. Uncheck Public. (Prevents external access to the server)

     

  13. Give the rule a name, and click Finish to create the rule.

     

  14. You should now see a new rule enabled in the firewall management console.

     

  15. Restart the SMTP Service and set the service for Automatic Start. Open up the Services Management Console. Double Click on the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol service. Stop and then Start the service. Set the Startup type to Automatic.

That’s it. The service is ready and waiting.
