Common Support Issues

Database Permissions
If you receive an error when setting up ASP Content Managment similar to the following.
Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80004005) The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'c:\inetpub\data\acm.mdb'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data. /common/dbconn1.asp, line 7

It is most likely the permissions on the database. Check that the .mdb file is not read-only, and check the permissions on the .mdb file. The user named "IUSR_your_machine_name" needs to have write permission. Also double-check your path in "/common/dbconn1.asp" to be sure your pointing correctly to your database location.

Windows 2003
Must enable parent paths on Windows Server 2003, this is now disabled by default on new installs.

<%Response.buffer = true%>
at the start of the script and then use
