Trying to create a data file of users for login purposes

Post by jpactuary » Fri Mar 31, 2017 8:48 pm

When I select a file name, the system tells me "no remote ftp publish profiles were found. Please create one..."
When I try to publish, it asks me for all sorts of info about location, pages to publish and other info. I'm trying to create the data file of users on my c drive. What should I do?

To be able to create a data file on the server you will need to setup a FTP publish profile first, otherwise the file cannot be uploaded.
Alternatively you can create the file manually. See the help and tutorials for more details.

Hi, I went to your instruction link. I did step one and the first sentence of step two. I don't understand the second sentence. Where is the built-in FTP tool?

You can access this from File->Publish. See also the following for further information.

I tried that - it published to a folder on my c: drive - the same one that has the users file, but I get the same error - that no remote FTP publish profiles were found. Can I create this database just on my c:drive for now?

Did you read my suggestions?
There are instructions in the help and tutorial how to create the file manually (without the wizard).

Hi - thanks very much for responding! yes I tried it and it did not work. I'm now putting Apache on my c: drive and trying to use that as my server. Am I on the right track?

What do you mean by 'it didn't work'?
What is the error?
Basically all that needs to be done is create an empty file in the right folder with write permissions).

I tried to create a data file wizard. it gives me the error that no remote FTP publish profiles were found. I tried to publish to my c: drive and it didn't work. I did create the user text file ok.
Thanks!

Correct. Because you need to create a FTP profile to be able to upload files to a web server.

You if you do not have a FTP profile then you will need to create and upload the file manually.
This is documented in the help and tutorial (please read carefully).

Do I need an FTP profile to use the login tools?

You cannot use the wizard if you do not have a FTP profile but that does not mean you cannot create the database.
The FTP profile is only needed for the wizard.
You can also create the database manually as described in the tutorials and help!

In other words: you do not have to use the wizard to create the login database. It is only meant to make it easier, IF you already have FTP set up.

Did you try the steps in the tutorial?
Where exactly does it stop working for you?

Hi again -

How do I set permissions and how do I configure the database?
Thanks.

You can usually do this on the server (via the control panel of your webhost)
Or else use FileZilla or any other FTP client.
Or if you create a FTP profile in WWB then you can also do it directly from the application.
