Securing your Website with SSL

Why is SSL Necessary for your Website and the Benefits of using SSL Certificates

Why you need SSL security on your Website in 2020 Is the implementation of SSL important for your website? The answer to that is simply YES… And we are about to list some of the common reasons that SSL encryption on your website is more important than ever. But first, let’s explain exactly what SSL encryption is… What is SSL/TSL Encryption Putting is simply, is is when you access a website using HTTPS:// before the address in place of HTTP://. Websites that use https:/// are using some cleaver encryption that ensures that information sent to the website browsers and from the website browser to the website is secured and cannot be intercepted by people spying on your connection. Sites without this encryption send information back and forth as plain text. Making it super simple for anyone who is looking at this information to read all of it.

Adding Application Pool Identity in IIS to a Folder

KB – Granting folder permissions to IIS application pools     Skip to end of metadata   Go to start of metadata   Whenever a new application pool is created, IIS creates a security identifier (SID) that represents the name of the application pool itself. For example, if you create an application pool with the name “Smartcrypt,” a security identifier with the name “Smartcrypt” is created in Windows. Resources can be secured by using this identity. However, the identity is not a real user account and will not show up as a user in the Windows User Management Console. This can be configured by selecting a folder in Windows Explorer and adding the “Smartcrypt” identity to the folder’s Access Control List (ACL). Open Windows Explorer Select the directory the Smartcrypt Manager is installed under (eg: c:\web\mds) Right click the directory and select Properties Select the Security tab Click the Edit button and then Add button Click the Locations button… Read More »Adding Application Pool Identity in IIS to a Folder

DotNetNuke Upgrade Error on Snowcovered

Noticed this today: DotNetNuke Upgrade Error The Assembly Version ( [ASSEMBLYVERSION] ) does not match the Database Version ( [DATABASEVERSION] ) ERROR: Could not connect to database. Cannot open database "Snowcovered2" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user ‘snowcovered’. It appears that the professionals have troubles too! Strange from an admin point of view that their Database Connector name would be something as obvious as “snowcovered”.  I wonder if their pass is “dotnetnuke”?


HSV GTO & GTS Coupe (December 2001) GTS Rim HSV believes the GTO and GTS Coupe, based on the Holden Monaro coupe, will turn the high performance luxury market on its head The Coupes, officially unveiled at HSV’s state of the art new headquarters in Clayton, VIC, will sell for $73,750 and $94,750 respectively. And HSV managing director John Crennan believes it’s the high-end Europeans that should be worried. "I believe that, if the HSV Coupe was released as is but with BMW badges, the price would be $150,000-plus." He sites BMW’s M3 coupe and M5 sedan, as well as high performance metal from Mercedes-Benz, as potential victims at the altar of HSV’s first ever two-door. Bold stuff, indeed. Whether mentioning the HSV Coupe range in the same breath as established supercars from Germany is a clever marketing association, or an honest appraisal of the Coupe’s ability remains to be… Read More »GTS RIM
