Sharepoint Hosting

Lately I have been researching on the windows SharePoint services 3.0 and MOSS or SharePoint Server 2007.

As much as I love to implement SharePoint based websites the hassle I am running into is to pick the right type of hosting plan, A plan that will give me peace of mind and as well as the money's worth for the clients.

I have tried to find the best solution for hosting and so far my dealing with 123Together and HostMySite has not yielded in a peace of mind solution.

The basic SharePoint plan I have with 123Together is good which is solely based on WSS 3.0 and all works great except the fact that I cannot backup the website in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2007. The support people tell me that my site is backup daily but I like to have a rollback for at least a week not just a day or two, so I just getting a run around from technical support people.

And the HostMySite hosting is totally different ball game, they have yet to figure out a anonymous user access. Either the technical support or sales people need a training that SharePoint 2007 is not the same as SharePoint 2003 or that they need to really sit down with infrastructure people and really nail it down the issue that they have been having.

I hope one of these days I will find a solution that will work for what I am looking for that is:
1. Easy backup of my site
2. Internet facing website with ability to add forum based user registration not back-end based user moderation.
3. IT Support people who really know the WSS features as well as how to set the permission settings on to turn on and off a custom list, uploaded web-parts.

Its not that I don't know how to turn on and off the WSS features or list permissions but sometimes the basic user account does not have permissions to make updates so when I call the support, it shouldn't be I who has to guide the support person as to what needs to be done to fix the problem.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files.

We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working.

The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for.

I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15302080/fastcgi-500-failure

Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again?

Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Today on Jan 11, 2018, I have received the Grow with Google Scholarship.

I am really excited because, previously I had joined Udacity to complete a Nano Degree, but due to price and family priorities, I had to abandon that goal.

Today, I feel like I am getting a second chance to give it another shot to completing my Nano Degree.
