DNN Popup Greeting–Kill it Good!

In the recent DNN 7 releases, they have unfortunately made by default a popup greeting after sign in, that in theory would drive clients to signup for their spam.

Problem is (like lots of recent DNN features) that the “tick to never show again” does not work, and in some really recent releases, the popup goes crazy and does not allow you to progress into the site.

In other words, they killed their own product with spam crap.

Easy fix. Open the file in the web root, called: Default.aspx.cs

Look for this line: ManageGettingStarted();

Just throw a // before it to comment it out.

Save and restart the IIS site. Should fix it fast and for good.

Error The transaction log for database “domain.com” is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases

While accessing a DotNetNuke website today, I was getting this error all the time.

Error   The transaction log for database “domain.com” is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases

I found this one a little perplexing. On further investigation I found that the transaction logging for the SQL server supporting this was massive. Around 980 meg when I would expect it to run around 15 meg.

Initially I tried killing all processes with active connections to the database, but that did not have the desired result. (We all know what a pain that can be in SQL). So I set the database to “Simple”, and tried to Detach the re-attach.

Still no joy!

All of this round and round ended up with an IIS server and SQL server reboot. All came good and the net result is that I cannot explain the fail or fix it.

Hope this helps someone make the reboot decision faster than I did. That’s another 2 hours of my like I will never get back!
