    The process of getting HAP on the Web

    Hey Guys,

    I am looking to install HAP tomorrow and was wondering after the installation is done, how do you go about getting it on to the internet so that it is accessible by all?

    Installation is going to be on a 2008 R2 server and I've never done anything like it before.

    And if the 2008 R2 server is going to be on the internet how do you about making it secure as possible?

    HAP+ requires HTTPS to work. This encrypts the web traffic between the client and server. This is the secure part. The setup requires setting permissions on the folder structure on the server to prevent any miss configuration by anyone, and passwords are hashed and encrypted in both the configuration files as well as any session variables

    Hi Nick,

    Can you tell me in your documentation under Installation Instructions IIS 7; point 30, you have stated:

    30. Add the permission:
    a. IIS AppPool\HAP (Findable from the Local Machine). Set them to Read & Execute permissions
    b. App_Data Folder: Set to Read & Write
    There is no account called IIS AppPool. Can you tell me where I can find this?


    What's more, having skipped that bit would this cause the problem attached? If not, how do I resolve it? I did remove line 118 but to no avail. The process of getting HAP on the Web-hap.png

    Hi Chuckster,

    have you looked at this post Can't Find IIS AppPool\HAP, the Answer

    I'm pretty sure that will fix your problem.

    I would follow the video. I had lots of issues with the doc.

    There is no account called IIS AppPool. Can you tell me where I can find this?
    I think the user is created in IIS when you create the app pool, one of the first steps in the video.

    In the setup page of the Booking System tab, I try to add/edit a lesson but all I keep getting is:
    Code:
    An WCF Error has Occurred
    And skipping on from that, when I try to log in through the homepage with administrator credentials, it says
    Either your Username or Password was incorrect
    How do I resolve both issues?

    You may need to delete your hapconfig.xml file and re run the setup page. Some part of your AD setup is wrong

    Deleted the hapconfig.xml file and started afresh. Just got to the Book System page and upon the first entry of inputting the first lesson, and then hitting save, I got the error again:
    Code:
    An WCF Error has Occurred

    It's being temperamental and now I'm getting an
    Code:
    internal server error
    message

    Sometimes it'll add the lesson and some other times it won't. If you edit/delete the entry you get the above error. Still nowhere near in resolving the issue.

    If you skip the booking system after adding 1 of everything, if you can, you can then go into the hapconfig.xml file and edit it directly.

    I did that but here's another error displayed at the top the web page:

    Code:
    A Error has occured: 
    Error Saving the Configuration
    
     Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    
     at HAP.Web.Setup.Save_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)

    Ok, that error means something isn't configured. Object reference errors only come up when some configuration is missing from the core.

    I've set up the initial config with little as possible just so I can test HAP.

    I managed to log in but I don't see anything other than the 'tabs' resources, management and me.

    The edit annoucement in the top right hand corner is missing an image but the image it is referring to is sitting correctly in the folder (HAP/Images/Icons).

    So far I've managed to log in and everything appears to be working fine. However, when clicking 'my files' I am presented with this

    Any ideas?
