    Question Counter problems.

    Hi everyone, i'm new in the coding and programing for asp, but i'm currently helping a friend out with his website. After a bunch of troubles with the new server (godaddy) I was able to set the website just the way he had it before, but now i realize that there is a problem with the counter, I typed the address of the website and I get this message at the bottom:

    Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0046'

    Permission denied

    /index.asp, line 94

    And I just find out that the 94th line in the index.asp is my counter:

    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile(fp, True)

    My counter asp file is now like this:

    <%@ Language="VBScript" %>
    <% Response.Expires= -1
    Response.AddHeader "Cache-Control", "no-cache"
    Response.AddHeader "Pragma", "no-cache" %>
    if Session("ct") = "" then
    fp = Server.MapPath("count.txt")
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set a = fs.OpenTextFile(fp)
    ct = Clng(a.ReadLine)
    ct = ct + 1
    Session("ct") = ct
    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile(fp, True)
    Set a = Nothing
    Set fs = Nothing
    ct = Clng(Session("ct"))
    end if
    <p>You are a visitor number <%=ct%>! </p>

    And since I have that error message I don't know what could be wrong, if somebody could help me out and tell me what my problem is I will much appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance.

    Here what your code on line no 94 doing is creating a text file in a folder where count.txt file resides.

    But, this folder doesn't have the write permission so it is not allowing the script to create a folder and throws an error.
    That's it...

    Yea the "Internet Guest Account" (IUSR_COMPUTERNAME) needs write permissions or you wont be able to create/write to files. (Same goes for read permissions etc if it doesn't have them)

    However, I have no idea how godaddy lets you use files and their permissions, I have my own servers.

    By the way that should be Server.CreateObject and you should probably avoid Sessions where possible in favour of cookies.
