    Installations on CS v2.1

    Has anyone successfully installed CommunityCredit on any beta version of CommunityServer v2.1?

    I'm having problems with v2.1 Beta 2, in particular.

    Hi Andrew,
    which problems are you experiencing?

    dotNetSide is using the addon with cs 2.1 beta 1 without any problems.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Good morning, Simone

    Thanks for your response.    I'm getting a CommunityServer error whenever I make the change to the CommunityServer.config file to enable the add-on.    When I get home, I'll post the contents of the eventlog.

    On a whole, I think it's because I botched the secret key Big Smile

    I have the DLL in the \bin folder, and I've tried putting the add-on code at the beginning or the end of the CS Modules section, but as soon as I enable the code, it goes south and generates the errors (which I'll post tonight).

    Since there's at least one site running on some version of v2.1, then the problem is quite likely to be me.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Okay, I received my updated info for my code and key (thanks, David!), and I installed it on my CS 2.0 RTM installation at work to test it.

    I added the .DLL file directly to the /BIN folder.

    I copied the text to my CommunityServer.config file and made the proper changes to reflect my code and key.    The next time I clicked on a page in my site, it generated the error as seen below in the EventLog.


    CS.Web Stopped CS.Web Stopped

    _shutDownMessage=Change Notification for BIN

    _shutDownStack= at System.Environment.GetStackTrace(Exception e)

    I was going to post a screenshot, but I don't have upload rights.  :)

    I'm going to try restarting the web service...   be back shortly.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    It's starting to look like I should have used the other forum for outlining this problem.  :)

    Anyhow, here are some more details...

    Here is a snippet from my CommunityServer.config file with my Affiliate info obscured:

      <CSModules>
       <add name = "CommunityCreditPointSubmission" type = "CSCommunityCredit.CommunityCreditPointSubmission, CSCommunityCredit">
        <AffiliateKey Value="B-------------" />
        <AffiliateCode Value="U-----------" />
        <Trace Value="false" />
       </add>

    I have it right up at the top.  In my tests prior to today, I was putting it at the very bottom.

    This last time, I uncommented the entry, and restarted the entire IIS service.   When I tried to get to the website, it generated the customary and generic "Community Server" error.

    My eventlog looks as follows:

    As soon as I commented the line, and saved the file, I was able to get back to the website without error.  I didn't need to restart any of the web services.

    Any assistance in this area would be most appreciated.  I would love to be able to start using this add-on on my sites.

    Thanks!!

    This means that the server has just restarted...
    should try to access after a few seconds :-)

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    That seems to me a normal shut down operation.
    Did u try adding the bin, changing the communityserver.config file, and then restart the webserver manually?

    I hate to ask you that stupid question, but:
    "Are you sure you copied the CSCommunityCredit.dll file inside the \bin folder of your online CS web application"?

    The only thing that is non standard is the physical name of the folder that hosts the entire website, but I don't see why that should be a problem for this app only.   It's all fine from an IIS perspective, and I haven't previously had any issues adding modules or running the site on a whole.

    I tried accessing the site from multiple systems, not just my own.

    Same problem, although it only generated a single Exception error in the logs.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Left no stone unturned... :)

     

    I *just* tried it again to be sure, and it still fails, no matter what part of the file it is under.

    I don't understand what the issue is.    This is happening across 3 different systems that I've tried to install the add-on.

    I'll see what happens when I get home again...

     

    Is my BIN file supposed to be somewhere in my system path?

    You said you are running it on the RTM version of CS 2.0, isn't it?

    Will try myself on a new installation of CS and let you know

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Hmmm.  No, as far as I know the BIN directory does not have to be in the system path.  In an earlier post you mentioned, "The only thing that is non standard is the physical name of the folder that hosts the entire website, but I don't see why that should be a problem for this app only. " Now, I would not expect that to be cause an error either, and since you are getting the error on 3 seperate systems it would eliminate that since I am assuming that the physical name of the folder being nonstandard is not the case for all 3 systems.  The physical name of the folder should not be relevant either. 

    One thought that comes to mind is permissions.  Can you view the permissions of the dlls in the bin directory to see if there is anything different from the Community-Credit dll than the other dlls in the folder?  In my experience, one reason that files may be considered "not found" is that they do not have the correct permissions set.  It is a bit of a longshot, but perhaps you can give it a look at to see if there is anything that seems to be different.

    Kindest regards,

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    At home, my internal system is currently running v2.1 RC1 and my public homepage is still on v2.0 RTM.

    At work, I'm also running v2.0 RTM.

    I can't get it to work on any of those sites...

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Thanks, David.

    You're right about the folder and path names not being the same across all 3 systems.   They are almost identical in 2 of them, but that hasn't been an issue for any other add-on.

    I also looked at the permissions, but the same permissions are inherited for all DLLs on my home system.   Later today, I'll check the one at work.

     

    I'm also going to compare my config files to the default and see if any other the other changes I've made previously would potentially impact this...

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Okay, I checked the permissions of the v2.0 RTM installation at work, and I also checked for any weirdness in the Config files vs the default, and there is nothing that even suggests a remote possibility of an issue.

    The permissions are the same on all files in the BIN folder, and the few changes in the 3 major config files couldn't possibly interfere with this app.

    I'll just have to wait and see what Simone comes up based on that last post.

    I'm really sorry, I still didn't have tested to install on a clean install of Community Server. Will try and do it this afternoon...

    As a side note, the final 2.1 version has just been released to the public.
    I'm heading for a few days of holidays around mid-august (which is a public holiday in Italy). Will come back after August, 16th, and will test it on that final version of 2.1.

    Take care

    I upgraded my sites to v2.1 last night and this morning.   I'll test CommunityCredit over the weekend and let everyone know how things go.

    I will also be installing it now that the 2.1 release is out and see if I can replicate your error message.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Thanks, David.

    On a whim, I just tried enabling it again on my local home installation, and no errors were generated!!

    WooHoo!!  Big Smile

    I'm about to push this out to the public site, so I'll let you know if my success is isolated, or the beginning of a nice trend.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    So far, so good.  I pushed the update to my public site, and everything is still running!

    http://Home.UltraTech-llc.com/

    I don't know what made it work, but I'm not going to worry about that until this weekend at the earliest.

    I would like to thank everyone for their assistance and suggestions, and if I ever figure out what caused the issue, I'll let everyone know.

    Hello Andrew,

         Wow, very cool!   I hate to press you on what the actual problem is, considering that you have been so patient in troubleshooting this problem.  It is also pretty late as well. :) From what I can see, one difference between the version that had the error and the one that worked is that the working version was the released version and the problematic instance was with the beta version.  Is that correct?  Naturally, I would love to write it off as a bug in the beta version, but in case it is something different can you thing of any other differences?   I would love to know in the event that anybody else has the same problem.  In any case, I am happy that it is working for you now.  Really Happy Big Smile in fact!

    Kindest regards,
      David Silverlight

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Good morning, David

    I originally thought that it was a bug with the beta version as well, but soon it became apparent that it wasn't limited to that, but was based on something else (which I still haven't identified as yet).

    Here's a bit more chronology on the issue:

    I started trying to use it after I had already upgraded my internal test installation from 2.0 RTM to 2.0 Beta 2.   When it failed, I thought that it might simply be because of changes to the beta code, so I pushed it to my public site which was using 2.0 w/SP1.   It also broke.   I then took it to my site at work, which was running 2.0 RTM, and tried it there, with the same failures as the other two sites.

    During this time, I wasn't sure if there was a problem with my Affiliate Key or not, so I waited until I could get the correct info on the key.  Also, once I found that it didn't work, I didn't remove the code outright -- I merely commented it out.   In all cases, I was cutting and pasting the exact same code between all of my sites.

    So, we had two sites on v2.0, and one which moved from Beta 2 to RC1 of v2.1 -- but the add-on still wouldn't run.    Now, my test installation and my personal site had basically the same add-ons, but the work installation was more vanilla, and still there were problems.   Each time I tested them, I was simply removing the comments from around the code, and in one case I restarted IIS, etc.   I never did reboot the box, though.

    Finally, I upgraded my test site and my personal site to the RTM of v2.1 on the 9th.   Yesterday, while updating other aspects of my sites, I decided to try enabling the add-on again, and it worked immediately on the internal test site.    After posting that here, I pushed the same code to the public site and it started working there as well.   I guess I could try the work site today and see how complete the success is.  Smile

    I have archives from all 3 sites pertaining to the code which existed since I started this endeavor, so in the upcoming week, I will perform some comparisons of the code and see if there is anything that stands out as being responsbile for the previous failures.  Even better, if I can replicate on demand the conditions that caused the error, I will be pleased, as I hate loose ends in troubleshooting. Smile

    I'm very happy that it's working, however, and I hope that everyone else's experience is just a little less *involved* than mine.  Big Smile

    Thanks again for all your assistance.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Good morning, David.

    I spent some time yesterday trying to figure out why my site would break whenever I enabled the CommunityCredit module under the betas of Community Server v2.1, but worked (or seemed to work) when I upgraded to v2.1 RTM.

    I did all sorts of file compares, and could find nothing that stood out as being even a potential culprit.  Still, as I was not receiving any emails for my posts on my site, like I do when posting to this site, I started checking my email settings and came across some interesting EventLog entries.

    For now, I'll have to attribute the changes to something in CS 2.1 RTM, but the failure of the Community-Credit CSModule to load no longer prevents the website from coming up entirely. It's generating the same old error message of:

    A CSModule (CommunityCreditPointSubmission) could not be loaded. The type CSCommunityCredit.CommunityCreditPointSubmission, CSCommunityCredit does not exist

    I don't see why, when I've added this CSModule just like the other ones that are on my sites.

    If anyone has done any testing and can replicate this issue, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.

    It's currently at the top of my module list, and the only other module running on the production website is Dan Bartel's GoogleSiteMap module.

    Thanks, everyone...

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Simone / David:  Any thoughts on this?

    Is there some additional component that I'm missing somewhere, or an extra configuration step that I missed?

    Has anyone been able to replicate this problem on any version of Community Server?

    Hello Andrew,

          I just upgraded to 2.1 and it went without any issues yet.  I tested the Community Credit AddOn and haven't found any problems yet.  In the posts that I have submitted since then, all is working fine.   I recieved my confirmation email and points.  Let me see if Simone has any thoughts on it.  Maybe we should start a thread on the Community Server forum.  I will see if anything jumps out at me today and if not I will start a thread this evening.

    Kindest regards,

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    One other thought.....   Can you email me your CS.config file?  Maybe in some comparison to my own, it will reveal something.  It is a bit of a longshot, I must admit, since it is happening on multiple versions, but maybe something will jump out. 
    Kindest regards,

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    I just copied the Community Credit Addon section of your cs.config file to the one on Community Credit and it worked like a charm.  Here is one more thought.... Can you send me the dlls that you are using.  Maybe they somehow got corrupted when you downloaded them.
    Kindest regards,

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Good morning, David

    Thanks for your assistance.

    I've sent the requested DLL via email, as well as the config file.   I've also sent a full directory listing of my CS installation tree (for my local installation).  Hopefully, this will help in narrowing down this issue.

    Let me know if you need any other info from me.

    Thanks!

    BTW, you mentioned DLLs -- plural.

    Does the Add-on have more than one?

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    One other question, David.

    Is this possibly a .NET 1.1 vs .NET 2.0 issue?     I'm only using .NET 1.1 for all my installations...

    Hmmm.  I had not really considered that, for some reason.   I know that all of the environments that I have tested it in have been 2.0.  I have a hunch that it is the same with other folks that I have tested it with, but I have not asked them directly.   Let me contact them to see if that might be the common denominator.  Maybe you are on to something.

    Andrew,
    the AddOn has been developed, and compiled on .NET 2.0.
    So it's not meant to be run on the 1.1 fw....

    I'm sorry Smile

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    For some reason, it never occured to me before.  I don't know why, but I kept thinking that if everything else is working, and the instructions are as simple as all other instructions, and the files were downloaded multiple times, that this was the only thing that was common with all of my configurations but might be different from yours.

    Re: Installations on CS v2.1

    Drats...  Big Smile

    No chance that it can be compiled to work with .NET 1.1?

    (At least I'm relieved to know that I wasn't botching something minor the whole time...)

     

    I'll have to see what it will take to upgrade my installations to .NET 2.0 and test it at that point.

    Stay tuned, this saga is now only half over... Wink

    Not a problem...

    I have upgraded my internal site successfully, and now the CS Module works.   Before the week is out, the other sites will be upgraded.

    Excellent!  I am happy to hear the news and noticed the entries coming through.  Still a bit embarrassed to not have asked the obvious 1.1 question about 40 posts back, but it is at least good to see all working nicely now.
