DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Easy DotNetNuke Performance Improvements

clock Februarie 13, 2015 06:39 by author Ben

I have been seeing a big number of concerns not too long ago with regards to DotNetNuke functionality and items that will be done to help improve the overall performance in the internet site. Usually these questions surround the SiteLog and EventLog tables so I thought I'd post a number of simple queries which you can run to assist hold your database lean that will preserve your DotNetNuke website running at peak efficiency.

Website Log

I'll start off using the Internet site Log table, the website log functionality isn't a single that I truly utilize in my site, nonetheless for all those of you who use it in yours you are going to need to hold an eye on it, I have noticed that right after the log has grown to more than about 4-5 thousand records that you could begin to notice some efficiency decreases. Furthermore if you're like myself and have turned off the internet site log I found out that it will not necessarily clean itself up in case you turned it off, therefore in my case I had 1000 lingering records, which just unnecessarily improved the size of my database.

To check the amount of records within your Site Log use the following query

SELECT Count(*)
FROM SiteLog

To find the oldest record in the site log use the following

SELECT MIN([DateTime])
FROM SiteLog

Soon after you've viewed this details you can establish your necessary course of action. In my case since the internet site log is disabled on all portals I simply deleted all records in the table employing a basic delete statement. Within your case you could only want to purge certain records but that determination is outdoors the scope of this short article.

Event Log

The Occasion log shops portal certain event details like logins, invalid login attempts and actual errors. If you have a pretty active portal this table can grow very big really quickly. For my sites with their visitors of about 100-120 guests per day I have noticed an EventLog of over 2000 records within a two.five month period. Now unless you happen to be auditing logins or undertaking particular tracking you are able to normally rid yourself of those records without much impact. You'll be able to purge these portal by portal via the "Event Viewer" inside DotNetNuke, or it is possible to view and modify records by way of the database. Beneath I'll give you two valuable queries.

To determine the number of records, as well as the quantity of records per portal. Note, inside the benefits in the per portal query, you are going to discover a lot of entries listed having a NULL portal id, that is for DNN installation wide things, like scheduler and application events.

--Overall total
SELECT COUNT(*)
FROM EventLog

--Total by portal (null is not portal specific)
SELECT LogPortalId, COUNT(*)
FROM EventLog
GROUP BY logPortalId

To identify the oldest records you can use one of the following queries, again an overall minimum and a per portal minimum will be found

SELECT MIN(LogCreateDate)
FROM EventLog

SELECT LogPortalId, MIN(LogCreateDate)
FROM EventLog
GROUP BY logPortalId

Once again for deleting these records the decision truly depends upon your portals use on the Occasion Log and any require for user login auditing. In my case I once again don't require this details and at present I've resolved all of my routine errors that had been taking place, for that reason I removed all records in my listing across all sites. I try to complete this at the very least as soon as as month to ensure that the table size has been decreased.

Viewing DB Size

If you would like to view the size of one's database files you are able to make use of the query below to view the size of every single file for the present database.

SELECT *
from SYSFILES

Making use of these ideas you'll be able to start to acquire a better understanding of the database size and you can assist handle it and preserve your DotNetNuke website running at peak efficiency!

DotNetNuke Hosting with ASPHostPortal :: How To Uninstall DNN Module Programmatically

clock Februarie 11, 2015 17:38 by author Mark

Uninstall DNN Module programmatically

To uninstall the DNN module is actually quite complex via code. There are couple of table modules related and depends on each other. Fortunately, the DNN framework has a built in delete method for these modules. There are 3 tables in the database that are related to the module definitions. They are: DesktopModules, ModuleDefinitions and PortalDesktopModules. The DesktopModules and ModuleDefinitions tables are global tables that are linked to all portals. While PortalDesktopModules table contains a relationship between each portals and what modules can be used by each individual portal.
Lets say you want to remove a list of modules containing a name started with MyModule_.

/* Firstly, you need to include these namespaces on the top of the code */
/* This namespace for Dictionary collection */
using System.Collections;
/* These namespaces for module collection */
using DotNetNuke.Entities.Modules;
using DotNetNuke.Entities.Modules.Definitions;

The next part is to grab a list of module definitions collection and compare if the name contains MyModule_

/* Declare ModuleDefinitionController object */
ModuleDefinitionController objModuleDefinitionController = new ModuleDefinitionController();
/* Declare DesktopModuleController object */
DesktopModuleController objDesktopModuleController = new DesktopModuleController();
/* Get dictionary module collection */
Dictionary<int, ModuleDefinitionInfo>  moduleList = ModuleDefinitionController.GetModuleDefinitions();
/* Perform a looping in the module list */
foreach (int i in moduleList.Keys) {
    /* We only delete the module friendly name contains MyModule_ */
    if (moduleList[i].FriendlyName.IndexOf("MyModule_") >= 0) {
        /* Delete the module from table module definitions */
        objModuleDefinitionController.DeleteModuleDefinition(moduleList[i].ModuleDefID);
        /* Delete the module from table desktop modules */
        objDesktopModuleController.DeleteDesktopModule(moduleList[i].DesktopModuleID);
        /* Delete the module from portal desktop modules */
        DesktopModuleController.RemoveDesktopModuleFromPortal(PortalId, moduleList[i].DesktopModuleID, true);
    }
}

DotNetNuke Hosting With ASPHostPortal :: How to Automate the Packaging of your DNN Module

clock Februarie 9, 2015 15:53 by author Mark

Today we will learn How to Automate the Packaging of your DNN Module, let me to show you step by step :

 

  • Delete all source code and start over from scratch with my templates installed.
  • Open your project in Visual Studio
  • Install the MSBuildTasks project from Nuget:

   PM> Install-Package MSBuildTasks

  • Create a BuildScripts folder in your project
  • Add two files (source for each here)
  • ModulePackage.targets
  • MSBuild.Community.Tasks.Targets
  • Right click on the project in Visual Studio Solution Explorer and choose “Unload Project”
  • Save changes if prompted
  • Right click on the unloaded project and choose the Edit option
  • At the bottom of the file, before the </Project> section add

        <PropertyGroup>
          <Extension>zip</Extension>
          <DNNFileName>CHANGEME.dnn</DNNFileName>
          <PackageName>CHANGEME</PackageName>
          <MSBuildCommunityTasksPath>$(SolutionDir)\Build</MSBuildCommunityTasksPath>
        </PropertyGroup>
        <Import Project="BuildScripts\ModulePackage.Targets" />
        <Target Name="AfterBuild" DependsOnTargets="PackageModule">
        </Target>
        <Import Project="$(SolutionDir)\.nuget\nuget.targets" />

  • Change the “CHANGEME” text to match the name of your .DNN file and the name of the ZIP file that you want the package created as.
  • Save the Project changes.
  • Right click on the project in Solution Explorer and choose Reload Project.
  • Switch into Release mode in Visual Studio and do a Build of your project.

This should create two files, ModuleName_Version#_Install.zip and ModuleName_Version#_Source.zip.
What I typically do then is install the module to a test DNN install to make sure that everything is working correctly. You’ll want to make sure that the ZIP files created contain all the right files, and they get installed correctly, so a test installation is the best way to go through that process.
If something fails, try to track it down, then do another Build in Release mode, rinse and repeat the installation process in your test install until you get everything working properly.

Now going forward, after you do a release, you go into your AssemblyInfo file, change your version number there, and into your .DNN File and change your Version number there. Next time you build in Release mode the module will create a new VERSION number ZIP file, leaving your last version builds there as well.

DotNetNuke Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com :: GetTab Method without DNN Context

clock November 30, 2014 20:22 by author Mark

GetTab Method without DNN Context

As you know, the simple method GetTab(int tabid) was obsolete and has been replaced by GetTab (ByVal TabId As Integer, ByVal PortalId As Integer, ByVal ignoreCache As Boolean). If you want to call the new method, we have to pass the additional parameter “PortalId”.
In common,  the object PortalSettings can be easy to get with DNN context, such as special dnn module & page; however, it may be inaccessible in some sceneries, such as separate aspx page or handler. Then is there any way to get the correct tab info with this new method? Now there is a simple trick to do it with passing into Null.NullInteger as the parameter PortalId. So the coding looks like that:

var tabController = new TabController();
var blogPage = tabController.GetTab(tabID, Null.NullInteger, false);

Deeping into the source code, you will find out that it always tries to get the correct PortalId for this tab/page object:

//if we do not know the PortalId then try to find it in the Portals Dictionary using the TabId
portalId = GetPortalId(tabId, portalId);
//if we have the PortalId then try to get the TabInfo object
tab = GetTabsByPortal(portalId).WithTabId(tabId) ??
        GetTabsByPortal(GetPortalId(tabId, Null.NullInteger)).WithTabId(tabId);

Hope this trick & tip helps if someone has the same issue.

Cheap DotNetNuke 7 Hosting :: How to Fix 404 Handling Error on DNN 7

clock Junie 5, 2014 06:15 by author Ben

404 Handling is the process of managing what happens when a visitor comes to your site and enters a Url/follows a link which isn't valid. The correct handling of 404 errors can really mean the different between a professional looking site, and one that still looks like it is in development. The name ‘404 Error’ is used because the web server returns a response code of ‘404’, meaning it couldn't find a matching file/resource for the Url. A well developed 404 strategy will retain users, keep search engines up to date and in general make your site look like a polished and finished effort.

Here is the tips how to fix 404 Handling Error on DotNetNuke 7 :

Keep in mind that a prerequisite for this strategy is that you must be using ASP.Net 3.5 SP1 or later. This will not work in earlier .Net Framework versions. Look at the customErrors section below in web.config:



There are a few things to notice here. First, the addition of redirectMode=”ResponseRewrite”. This enables a rewrite of the error page rather than a redirect. The next thing to notice is the specific instruction on what page handles 404 errors. Rather than ‘TheErrorPage.aspx’, 404 errors are handled by ‘404.aspx’.

Now we get to some specifics in DNN. In your DNN site create 'TheErrorPage.aspx' and '404.aspx' (or whatever you want to name them) in the root of your website. From my testing this does not work if you were to add this as a page within DNN itself (i.e. via Pages → Add). Instead, manually add these error pages in the root of the site.

Lastly add this bit of code to the 404.aspx error page:


This code simply ensures a 404 status is returned when the page loads, which should only be for 404 errors. You could do this in C# as well. You can add any HTML you would like to this page so you can provide a friendly 404 error page.

404 Error on DNN 7 Installation
If you are encountering an issue with DNN 7 installations that causes most of DNN's URLs to result in 404 errors then please try to following fix.

Within your site's web.config file locate the opening tag for the "modules" section of the web.config file which is:
"<modules>" (without quaotation marks)

Then modify it so that it reads as follows:
"<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">" (without quotation marks)

Then save the web.config file and restart your site.
That should resolve the issue and allow your links and pages of your DNN 7 installation to resolve correctly.

Free Trial DotNetNuke Hosting :: How to Hover Dropdown Menus for Responsive Twitter Bootstrap Skin for DNN 7

Bootstrap is a free collection of tools for creating websites and web applications. It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions.

Twitter's Bootstrap is an excellent set of carefully crafted user interface elements, layouts, and javascript tools, freely available to use in your next web design project. This video series aims to introduce you to Bootstrap; taking you all the way from downloading the resources, to building a complete Bootstrap-based website.

While in the process of developing our own Responsive Twitter Bootstrap Skin for DotNetNuke 7, we had to jump over a couple of hurdles. First we had to figure out how to implement a dropdown on hover menu. Secondly, we had to overcome the Bootstrap issue where once you are on a child page, you cannot navigate back to the parent page in the menu. Bootstrap is against both of these features, however we feel as though these features provide a user friendly interface, especially while using a tablet or smartphone. With that said, we wrote this article to save you the headache to incorporate these two features in your Responsive Twitter Bootstrap Skin for DotNetNuke 7.

 

The real beauty was that I realized, I had included both the data-toggle="dropdown" and the data-hover="dropdown". You must only use the data-hover="dropdown" to fix both issues! The correct code is below:

Now you will have dropdown on hover menu items AND will be able to navigate to the parent page from the child page.

DotNetNuke Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Optimize Your DNN Installation for Speed and Efficiency

clock Februarie 7, 2014 07:58 by author Jervis

Review some of the default DotNetNuke configurable settings, most of which have been configured for general ease of use. This article will show you how to modify some of these settings ito improve the overall performance of your DotNetNuke installation.

DotNetNuke is a large and flexible web platform and as such has many configurable settings. Most of these settings have been configured for general ease of use, so it is recommended that we review and modify some of these settings if we wish to improve the overall performance of a DotNetNuke installation.

1) Host Settings Configuration

Configuration - Check For Upgrades
When this option is enabled, your website will communicate with “DNN Corp” to check for upgrades. An upgrade check will be performed every time you view the module definitions page or if you view a page with the DNN control bar embedded.

We should turn this option off to reduce overhead and remove the annoying nag images.

Appearance - Show Copyright Credits
This feature injects the DNN copyrights into the page, this just adds more page weight and is not required.

We should turn this option off to reduce page overhead.

1.2) Request Filter Settings

DotNetNuke introduced the request filter feature starting with DotNetNuke 4.5.3, this feature enables you to setup request filters to block or redirect users.

If you do not specifically need this feature, then we recommend that you turn this option off.

1.3) Performance Settings

The default DotNetNuke performance settings are ok for testing environments but production environments will require these settings to be modified. The following sub sections will outline recommendations for the configuration of these items.

Page State Persistence
This setting determines whether the page’s view state is stored in the page or server memory. Although changing this option to “Memory” could reduce the overall size of the request sent to the user, in most cases it causes other problems and I personally recommend NEVER changing this value to anything other than “Page”.

Module Cache Provider
The module caching provider setting configures how DotNetNuke will store the output cache of its module objects. The proper configuration of this setting is dependent on the specific environment that the website will be hosted in. Shared Hosting and Dedicated hosting environments will typically see better results using “Memory” caching. In Cloud computing environments, disk based caching makes sense as website content is stored on a SAN or similar device with very good write speeds, and memory availability is limited.

Cache Setting
This performance setting is used to control how much of the underlying data is cached by DotNetNuke.
We recommend setting this option to “Heavy”.

Authenticated Cacheability
This setting is used to define the cacheability of content for authenticated users, this can be used to optimize what can and cannot be cached by downstream routers and machines when working with authenticated users. For more information on the values in this section please consult MSDN

I recommend that this setting is left at the default value.

Compression Setting
Enabling gzip compression is an easy way to reduce the size of the site payload and get a nice boost in performance. It is possible to disable the DotNetNuke compression and use IIS native compression, however, we have experienced issues with some third party modules and IIS level compression. Therefore it is recommended that we use the DNN functionality unless there is a specific need to compress at the IIS level.

Use Whitespace Filter
This setting will strip whitespace from your generated page content following the Regular Expression specified in the Whitespace Filter option under "compression settings". This option is NOT needed if you are using a compression method. If you are not using a compression method and still would like to see a reduction in page size you can use this option which will slim down the HTML size of your pages.

Output Cache Provider (DNN Prol Only)
This provider is used to cache the entire content of a generated page allowing for zero database lookups and page generation activities to be skipped for un-changed content. This option is not available in the community edition of DotNetNuke.

1.4) Other Settings

Enable Users Online
The Users Online feature allows DotNetNuke to show you which users are currently online. This process adds a fair amount of overhead and it is recommended that you do NOT have users online enabled.

Site Log History
The Site Log History setting controls the data retention policy used by the DotNetNuke Site Log.
We recommend that the Site Log History setting be set to “0” days which will disable all site log functionality.

Scheduler Mode
This setting controls how DotNetNuke scheduled tasks are triggered. The default configuration of “Request Method” requires that on page requests a check is performed to trigger any tasks. This mode introduces additional request overhead and can delay end-user experiences. We recommend setting this configuration option to “Timer Method”.

Enable Event Log Buffer
DotNetNuke writes all kinds of log entries to the event log, user login, page changes, etc. Enabling the event log buffer allows DotNetNuke to queue these log items to cache, thus reducing the number of database writes. Therefore it is our recommendation that this setting be enabled on all installations.

Auto Sync File System
This configuration option enables/disables the automatic file synchronization functionality. We recommend disabling this functionality as it is only needed if files are added to the portal via FTP on a regular basis.

2) Admin Settings

On DNN 5 portals, un-select “Enable Skin Widgets” if they are not being used. This will prevent additional page resources from being injected, and increasing the size of the page.

3) DotNetNuke Scheduler

This is another DotNetNuke sub-system that is worth configuring to ensure the website is optimized
for performance. The DotNetNuke task scheduler provides vital functionality, however if the tasks are
scheduled to run too frequently they will have an adverse impact on the websites performance.

We recommend the following task scheduler optimizations:

First disable all scheduler tasks that are not required by this website installation.

Configure “DotNetNuke.Services.Scheduling.PurgeScheduleHistory, DotNetNuke” to run every 12/24 hours (or whatever best fits your portal requirements, based upon how much Schedule Log your website generates)

Configure “DotNetNuke.Services.Search.SearchEngineScheduler, DotNetNuke” to run every 12/24 hours and retry after 24/48 hours. (again depending upon what best fits your portal requirements). Note: updating this setting will yield a significant improvement in performance.

4) DotNetNuke Event Log

Anyone who uses DotNetNuke for any period of time will soon discover that the “EventLog” can produce a significant hindrance on performance. It is very important to note that DotNetNuke by default does not clear the entries in “EventLog” table. Over time this table will grow to be very large.

You can enable the “EventLog” buffer feature, to minimize the impact, but I recommend truncating this table on a daily basis. This allows for a 24 hour rolling history for any diagnostics purposes and avoids rapid transaction log growth when deleting records. This can be accomplished a number of ways;

SQL Server Scheduled Job

Manual process

Or using a custom module.

Also disable all logs that are not essential for the website installation, this will reduce the number of database requests your website will need to perform, in particular:

Disable “Application Start” log entries

Disable “Application End” log entries

Disable “Scheduler Started”, “Scheduler Event Started” log entries

5) Authentication Providers

Starting with DotNetNuke 4.7.0 additional authentication provider modules were introduced. Website administrators can configure which authentication provider/s is used to authenticate the users against.

Most DotNetNuke sites will only require the standard DotNetNuke Authentication Provider. However, behind the scenes the website will incur a performance hit when additional authentication providers are enabled, even if they are not being utilized.

This performance hit is typically limited to the login page itself where DotNetNuke polls all enabled providers to see if they must be rendered, but the performance impact can be major.

It is our recommendation that all non-essential authentication providers should be disabled.
