eNewsletter Pro Enterprise Edition for ASP.NET
SQL Installation Instructions for Shared Servers

Once purchased, the database and program are emailed to you.  Follow these directions to install and configure eNewsletter Pro™. 

Pre-Installation Instructions

  1. Make sure .net 4.0 is installed on your server.  If it is not installed, you can install it through the Windows Update utility.

Unzip Files

  1. Unzip the eNewsletterProEnterpriseDotNet11.zip file in a temporary location on the web server.  Do not place the file in a web folder.  A great place to unzip the files is in a folder on the desktop in /eNewsletterProEnterpriseDotNet/

    You will then see these sub folders:

Install Database on SQL Server

  1. The eNewsletter Pro™ database is sent as script file and can be found in the /eNewsletterProEnterprise/Database/ folder.   Follow these directions to create the database.
  2. Now add a user for this new database

Install eNewsletter Pro Web-Based Interface

  1. Determine the web site where you will install eNewsletter Pro.  This could be a new web site or a sub-folder in an existing  web site.  If installing within an existing web site, the directory must be made an Application Starting Point so that eNewsletter Pro can use it's own Global.asa file.  Click here for instructions on creating an application starting point.   Make sure this application pool is set to run .net 4.0 instead of 2.0.
  2. Copy the files from the /eNewsletterProEnterpriseDotNet/eNewsletterPro/ folder into the web folder that will house the web interface. Be sure to INCLUDE all the subfolders (admin,databaseuploads,imageuploads,images).
  3. Set the database connection in the web.config file.  The variable is called DBConnectionString.

    name="DBConnectionString" value="server=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX;UID=eNewsletterPro;
    PWD=yourpassword;DATABASE=eNewsletterPro" />

    Server=The IP Address of the SQL server
    UID=The Username you assigned to the database.  The default username is eNewsletterPro
    PWD=The password you assigned to the database
    DATABASE=The name of the database.  The default is eNewsletterPro

  4. If you will allow users to upload images to attach to the newsletters, give the USERS user AND ASPNET user WRITE permissions on the folder called "uploadedimages".  Also do the same on the "databaseuploads" folder and "ChartImages" folder.  This folder is used to store temporary databases that are uploaded to import subscribers and the ChartImages is used to store graphical charts.  You should also give the anonymous users delete permissions on the databaseuploads folder so the databases are deleted after the data is imported.
    Note: For security reasons, turn off execute and script access on both these folders.  This will prevent a malicious user from uploading and executing a damaging script or executable.

  5. Run the eNewsletter Pro administration console in your browser.  The administration console is located in a folder called /admin/.  The default file name is default.aspx.  For example, if you installed the software in a sub folder called enewsletterpro you can use... http://www.yourdomain.com/enewsletterpro/admin/default.aspx 
  6. Login using Admin1 for the username and password.
  7. Click setup and define the setup information including the license key that was emailed to you.

    Note: The Admin area is located in an /Admin/ folder.  The user login area is in a folder called "user". 

    Admin console /foldername/admin/default.aspx

    Ex. http://www.yourdomain.com/enewsletterpro/admin/default.aspx

    User console /foldername/user/default.aspx

    Ex. http://www.yourdomain.com/enewsletterpro/user/default.aspx

Installation is complete!
