Hi Guys
We had a "difficult" (being polite) time with a web design/hosting company spent far too much money for zero result but before we permanently parted company with them we managed to grab a copy of our web directory and database.
Transferred it over to IIS running on small business server 2003 so we can use the shop as a local catalogue/reference as we have over a 1000 products and also wish to use it in our shop as a display tool.

Now I know Iím doing something wrong as I cant get it too work & donít have a vpasp 5 manual or the original files as our hosting company "lost" them and we had a machine die so we lost our copy (yes we back up everything now) so only have print outs of emails etc.

I have edited all asp pages I can find that reference the original .mdb file location to the new one, for now set everyone to have full access.
I can get the front page - but when I click onto a product category I get the generic template page - but no products though no displayed errors

I can now log in as root admin and appear to be able to edit orders etc so I am guessing that I have the dbase paths etc right.
SO what am I missing to make the shop work locally ??

Thanks for any ideas - or if someone has a manwell for V5 would be appreciated

Hi Kev,

You can find the guides for older versions at:


It is a bit hard to second guess what the issue but have you looked in the template file itself and made sure that when you downloaded it the file came down fully?

Sometimes when you ftp files up or down they do not process fully so you have a file on your pc that is blank.
