    Java Chat / Volano Chat

    We provide your choice of Basic Java Chat or Volano Chatprograms for use on your domain. Extra charges apply for use of this feature. See our fee schedule for pricing. Examples of these chat programs can be found on our site located within the "Site Map" key on the navigational bar above. If you have applied for Chat, look on your website for a chat directory. It will already be configured for your server. To join the chat, with your browser, go to:

    http://www.yourdomain.com/chat

    The page can be customized, but leave all the tags alone that have to do with <APPLET CODE>.
    These rooms are capable of upto 50 users at one time.

  • Real Audio/Real Video/G2

    Real Audio or Real Audio/Video is including on some accounts and on all others it's available for an extra charge. See our fee schedule for details.

    Real Audio is a real time audio transmission/player system. A digital audio stream is transmitted from the server over the Internet to the destination and played immediately, rather than being stored to disk first and then played.

    Each audio clip requires two files: a metafile with extension .ram, and the digital audio clip itself, with extension .ra.

    The .ram file holds one or more lines of ASCII text, each of which references the .ra file to be played when the .ram file is accessed by the browser.

    Entries in .ram files have the form:

    pnm://machine.propagation.net/your-user-name/name-of-clip.ra

    "machine.propagation.net" - replace "machine" with the actual name of the server you are on.

    Place your .ram and .ra files in the realaudio subdirectory under your web directory. Remember that .ram files must be uploaded in ASCII mode while .ra files must be uploaded in BINARY mode. You may then access these files via a web browser at:

    http://www.yourdomain.com/realaudio/file.ram

  • Miva - HTML Script

    Miva makes building dynamic, data driven web pages as easy as HTML. You can quickly develop interactive web pages that are 100% browser independent. Miva runs on the web server, interprets the Miva tags and outputs pure HTML to the browser. You can also use Miva to output Javascript and other browser languages, and use the built-in database to easily manipulate and publish data.

    Full documentation and usage support for HTML Script can be found at http://miva.com/. Miva offers a variety of features and you should visit their site for more information.

    We are running version 3.22 of HTML Script. The following is what you will need to know for use on your domain.

    The script being called is "miva", which is in your cgi-bin. The active pages (pages with .hts or .mv) need to be placed in your root www directory, not in subdirectories. A sample URL call for this would be as follows:

    http://yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/miva?yourpage.mv

    HTMLSCRIPT has a variety of pre configured products that require path information
    we have preconfigured miva to automatically look into the www directory for data files, so the following would be used if the data files are in the main directory

    EXAMPLE.

    <export file="file.dat">


    To call Htmlscript thru the secure server use the following:

    https://machine.site-secure.net/cgi-bin/smiva?yourdomain/yourpage.mv

    Machine should be replaced with the name of the system your on, i.e. bob, vermillion, crimson, etc.

  • More On The Miva Engine.
    The Miva Engine makes building dynamic web sites as easy as writing HTML. Quickly develop server and browser independent dynamic sites using the XML standard. Dynamic sites that integrate scripting, database, and commerce can be developed and tested on a Microsoft workstation and deployed on Microsoft or Unix servers.

    SUPPORTED STANDARDS
      HTML   SGML   XML   HTTP
      POP3   SMTP   ISAPI   CGI
      NSAPI   UNIX   WINDOWS   JAVA
      ODBC   xBASE   APACHE   JAVASCRIPT

    Miva runs as a pre-processor on the web server, interprets the Miva tags and outputs standard HTML, XML, Javascript, and other user interface code to the browser. Use the built-in database and ODBC interfaces to easily manipulate and publish data. Anyone that knows HTML can use Miva.

    Miva (Htmlscript 3.0) tags are XML compliant and include:

    <MvEVALUATE>, <MvIF>, <MvELSE>, <MvWHILE>, <MvEXPORT>, <MvIMPORT>, <MvCOMMERCE>, <MvLET>, <MvASSIGN>, <MvCALL>, <MvHIDE>, <MvEXIT>, <MvCOMMENT>, <MvFUNCTION>, <MvMAIL>, <MvOPEN>, <MvCLOSE>, <MvFIND>, <MvSKIP>, <MvGO>, <MvADD>, <MvUPDATE>, <MvDELETE>, <MvUNDELETE>, <MvMAKEINDEX>, <MvSETINDEX>, <MvREINDEX>, <MvPACK>, <MvPRIMARY>, <MIVA>...

  • Microsoft Front Page Extensions

    Publishing a Web
    After you have built your html documents and are ready to upload them to our server:
    1. Open the web you've created on your PC using FP Explorer.
    2. Choose File > Publish
    3. If your "Destination Web Server" doesn't appear in the Publish window (it won't the first time you publish to our server)
    CHOOSE "More Webs" and type the location of the web to publish to. Hit return.
    IMPORTANT: Use www.yourdomain.com as the Destination Web Server to publish to our server.
    Leave the "Destination Web Name" BLANK.
    4. You will be asked for your USERNAME and PASSWORD. This is your domain's
    USERNAME and your FrontPage PASSWORD (which may be dfferent than your regular telnet/ftp/POP password). If you're not sure what it is or if you aren't allowed past this point, you'll need to contact us for a new FP password.
    5. You can watch the progression of the upload by looking at the bottom left corner of FP
    Explorer.

    Opening an Existing Web

    1. Open FP Explorer and choose File > Open Front Page Web.
    2. You can now choose to open a previously created web on your PC or your web on our server.
    3. Highlight the appropriate web or type in the web address (www.yourdomain.com) and click OK.
    4. Enter your USERNAME and FP PASSWORD if required.
    5. Make modifications and recalculate links if needed.  (See FP help docs for info on when it's     neccessary to recalculate links.


    Troubleshooting Common Problems with FP98

    Getting error - "Root Web Busy"
    FTP or telnet to your site and remove the "service.lck" file in /www/_vti_pvt.  This usually happens when an FP session is interrupted before completion.

    Server timing out when publishing large sites.
    This difficulty arises when the uploading link times out in the process of copying the web to our server.  The only suggestion Microsoft has offered so far is to break the main web into a group of sub webs on your PC, then upload these individually.  If this problem persists for you, please contact support.

    Getting Error - "Front Page Extensions not Installed"
    We often see this error being reported even when the extensions have been installed.  If you get this error, please contact support and we'll make sure the extensions are installed and repair them if necessary.
    NOTE:  The extensions are easily corrupted.  Please use only FP Explorer to update your web site on the server, not FTP.

    I published but my web's not there!
    This will happen when the "Destination Web Name" is filled in when publishing to our server.
    This box should be left blank.  If you put any other name in this box it will create a subdirectory off of your root web and copy all of your files into it.  Your site will exist under a subdirectory instead of at the top level /www where it should be.

    My counter, bbs, guestbook, etc. isn't working.
    These problems are generally due to incorrect permissions on either the directory, file(s) or cgi script(s) that are associated with them.  Please don't change the permissions of your files or directories unless you have a specific reason for doing so and you know what effect it will have on your site.

    My forms won't work through the Secure Server.
    The call to a cgi script using the Secure Server must not be within a webbot.  Use a normal cgi call in your html script for Secure Server calls.

    My search bot doesn't return any results.
    The /www directory must be world readable AND you need to recalculate links BEFORE publishing (or after editing directly on the server).  If it still doesn't work:  FTP to
    the server and go to the /www/_vti_txt/default.wti directory.   Delete any files that begin with "ALL.".  Don't delete any other files.  Then using Windows Explorer, do the same thing on your PC.  Recalculate links, test locally with your browser and publish.

    FP starts the Web Publishing Wizard when I try to publish.
    Cancel the operation and contact support to have the FP extensions installed/repaired.

    Why is my page renamed on the server when I publish?
    The "Default Document" of your web is automatically renamed by the server to what is required by the configuration of the server.  For example, if you've named the main page "index.html", it may be renamed "default.html".  Just check the links to your main page to make sure they refer to it the same way.

    NOTE: If you are using FrontPage, you should NEVER use regular FTP to upload your files. This will damage the extensions. Stick with one or the other all the time.
