Hi Victor I have a question regarding the extended personal starter kit. There are two page files, one concerning the password and the other, security question can you explain what your plan was for these pages. I see that they are in the root of the site
I would have though that they would have been placed in the admin folder with of course admin permissions. Unless they were there for learning purposes and expecting the user to place them there in the admin folder themself. I'm a bit confused can you please
instruct me in their purpose I don't see them in the sitemap. I ask only because I am a novice user of asp.net and like to ask questions before dive in to things. Thank you for your time.

I think you are talking about the RecoverPassword.aspx and ChangeSecurityQuestion.aspx pages. It has been sometime since I have looked at the codebase from the default install, so I'm not sure if these were implemented. These pages are for users to recover
their password and change their security question once logged in that is why they are not in the admin folder. The RecoverPassword is linked from the homepage just below the login form and the ChangeSecurityQuestion is linked from the Profile section once
Hope this helps.

Much thanks to Victor as well. Great job! I can host the website just fine with GoDaddy. The issue I run into is with the connection string. The default connection string in the Extended Kit is the following:
<add name="Personal" connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=|DataDirectory|Personal.mdb;" providerName="System.Data.OleDb"/>
<add name="PersonalAccessProvider" connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=|DataDirectory|ASPNetDB.mdb" providerName="System.Data.OleDb"/>
I think on any other host this would work. On GoDaddy, however; they require you to put your Access Database in their access_db folder that is created when you setup using an Access Database. The problem here is the DataDirectory part in Source=|DataDirectory|Personal.mdb;
for example. Based on the following website:
the DataDirectory folder refers to the App_Data folder which is where a database would be by default but NOT with GoDaddy.
My question is simple: how do I use the Extended Kit with GoDaddy with an Access Database? Is this even possible? I think I can use this connection string if I refer to the access_db folder instead of the App_Data folder. How do I do that? Help here would
be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Wow. This is awesome! Thanks so much. Had no problems. Just do an Open Web Site within VS2005, and works every time!
Was even able to modify the entire application and db to store pics on a file system instead of inside the MS Access DB, which was getting very large. I store the pic's path as a string in the DB. Works great.
Thanks so much!

You likely figured this out by now :)
I, too, have godaddy and use this setup. I bypass the godaddy setup of having to put the access db file in their access_db folder. I have found that the MS Access DB file doesn't have to reside in the access_db folder. I completely ignore this folder and
place my Access DBs wherever I desire. I just ensure the godaddy folder that houses my Access DB file has write permissions. My godaddy access_db folder is actually empty right now :)
My personal.mdb lives in the App_Data folder as the kit suggested. I never touched the kit's default settings. I loaded the kit on my local machine, ensured it worked, then just uploaded all the files from my local machine to my godaddy website, and it
just always has worked.
Were you able to change the web.config settings in the kit to accomodate the godaddy access_db folder? This would be great info to know.

Mine is currently using VB.net with access:
The only problems I've had so far are the permissions management. That doesn't work. I have another site in our company's intranet that uses SQL w/VB.net and everything works fine.

Can you share out how you got the website to work with godaddy I'm guessing you did have to change the connection string.
