Testing webpages

 3:59 pm on Nov 12, 2007 (gmt 0)

Help needed Badly...

I am new to creating a website. But finally i got everything designed and ready to be posted. Except that I can't seem to test my *.asp page. I can test html pages but not the asp ones. And having a bit of problem with the local/remote/test servers. Am trying to figure out how to get my files on the testing server. Tried viewing a couple of pages which seems okay. But some just can't seem to load and i get an error.

What should i do and how shall i go about this? driving me crazy...

Thanks guys.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, jenny.

error messages would be useful information, here.
what tool are you using to get your files on the server? ftp?
what problems are you having?

are you testing your asp pages on an asp-enabled server?
have you correctly named the file?

i just noticed that here on WebmasterWorld there is a tool to check HTTP response headers [webmasterworld.com].

i usually use lwp-request for this but i thought others may benefit...

Hi there.

Thanks for replying.

i am using FTP. Don't mind me coz i am new to this.

what i do is type in the URL on the browser to test the file which i can also do so by clicking f12 through dreamweaver. But i am testing see..

what i did now is type in the url which is http://example.com/pagename.asp

the page appears which is great! but where's my flash that's supposed to be part of the page?

pages run normal through f12 yah, but not through the testing server.

I hope i am making sense... :(

i can't help with the dreamweaver details - perhaps someone else will if necessary - but it seems like that is going ok.

to your problem - my guess is that you have a reference to your flash file (.swf) - perhaps in an object tag and/or an embed tag (or maybe in some javascript widget that loads your flash object.)
that flash file should also be uploaded to your server and the url on your .asp page should properly reference (relative to the .asp or absolutely) the file in its new location.

other pages with flash work fine except for this particular page... oh man...

sooo strange...

I guess i will try again and again..and again.. Thanks!
