Default Dynamic Table

Hi Imar,

On chapter 13, I've used dynamic table to display available records in a recordset. I hit the below error message when I try to have the page run, could you please advise?

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0131 : 80004005'

Disallowed Parent Path

/soccer/Admin/showEvents.asp, line 2

The Include file '../Connections/connTheSoccerSite.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.

I think this error is caused by a security setting in IIS.

In earlier IIS versions Parent Paths were allowed by default, but in Server 2003 and later, they are off by default.

To fix it, open the IIS Manager, locate your website, right-click it and choose Properties.
Switch to the Home Directory tab and click the Configuration button.
On the Options tab, check the option for Enable parent paths.

Make sure you read a bit about the security risks this may bring. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ty+risk%22+iis is a nice start.

Alternatively, change your include statement to something like

include virtual="/SomeFolder/SomeFile.asp"
