.NET project for a Backup, Restore, Migrate and Fix WebSitePanel accounts.
This project is meant to use WebSitePanel (formerly known as DotNetPanel or DNP).
The project was migrated a couple of years ago to the open community and is now available for a download from sourceforge where you can find the solution files.
WebSitePanel (WSP) has a built in functionality for backups and restore.
However, the backup and the restore development were halted at a certain point and today they are pending certain limitations and present very limited ability.
The underlying base assumption is that the "User" is always existing in the system.
WSP creates a user in the WSP db with the same name that it creates it in the Windows Users group.
Once a user is created from the WSP,. The user can add resources, plans, remove them etc. When the backup process runs, it backs up all the resources that are tied to that user.
You can delete all the resources inside the user,. And then using the restore option in WSP,. You can then restore from a backup all the resources back into the user's account.
However,. If you by mistake deleted the actual user account (either from the WSP or from the Windows Users),. Then there is no way to do a full restore.
This also applies to a situation when the user is required to be migrated to a new server, where his account was never created before.
There is a partial work on the restore of an account in the WSP. It actually nearly does a complete restore of an account, but it fails on the registration and updates in the WSP database itself.
What this project is all about:
We are looking for developer who can take on this challenge and assist us in building an app that is a standalone EXE,. But interacts with WSP and does a complete backup and a complete restore (with trigger questions such as "what happens if a resource in 'that name' already exists on the system?").
This is not a very complex project as most of the code is already available as part of the WSP solution. It does require you to be familiar with the various services (and all of the interaction is actually already done on the WSP original source code).
This is more of a debug to understand the methods and code of the current system rather than a 'build from scratch'.
There is going be some development work as we want the app of the backup and restore to be a standalone EXE (that uses bits and pieces from the .sln from the WSP).
Estimated time to complete this project is 7 days.
We require the source code (.sln) of the completed project and it must be provide on every milestone.
Estimated project budget is $500-$700.
We will provide you with an instances of windows server with WSP installed on it so you can do testing and also demonstrate us how the functionality is working. (you will get full RDP Administrator level access).
We use the Freelancer Escrow service and it is payable as follow:
First milestone (5%):
Second milestone (5%):
Third milestone (25%):
Fourth milestone (25%):
Fifth milestone (15%):
Specific Details about this project and each milestone are available in the word doc attached to this project.
We require .NET with C# deep understanding and know how.
If you have specific questions, please ask using the PM.
Please do not try to bypass the freelancer system. We found Freelancer to be a great service and want to keep it running.
You MUST show us work you have done before in order for us to consider you.
YOU CAN PROMOTE YOURSELF if you run and provide us with the first milestone as proof of you proficiency. It is a very small milestone from our perspective.
In any event, please read the detailed spec document.
Best of luck to you all.
