I am newbies in asp web development..i had a problem when after i uploaded my web to server.i couldn't find my database when i trying to login.i am using server.mappath("../register/db1.mdb")



when i use it in my local pc i am using it like this server.mappath("db1.mdb") .it's working...



i name my path "../register/db1.mdb" because i have a domain name infront of it. something like this.



http://www.lookup.com.my/register/db1.mdb



please help me...

why not use the absolute path instead of the relative one you're using now?  the "../" is telling the app to look in the parent directory of the directory it is currently browsing.  just use the whole thing.. or see if you can use the <BASE> tag somewhere (sorry, though, i know nothing about asp, but this problem doesn't seem asp specific).

Server.MapPath translates a virtual path to a physical path. Your virtual path is,

/register/db1.mdb  'Pass this to the Server.MapPath function

Server.MapPath("/register/db1.mdb")

my experience with working with urls and internet paths is that they're case-sensitive a lot of times.  do the casings of your url/db match up?

Post your code so we can see how you've coded your connection string.

Ask your web host what the proper path to your database is. They should be able to help you establish a connection.

why not use the implicit itinerary instead of the congener one you're using now? the "../" is informatory the app to examine in the parent directory of the directory it is currently eating. fair use the complete target.. or see if you can use the tag somewhere (worthless, tho', i bed cipher active asp, but this problem doesn't seem asp unique).
