How to generate pkcs12 certificate on windows?

Open a command prompt and go to the bin directory under the installation directory.

To create the private certificate type: “openssl genrsa –out private-key.pem 1024” and press [Enter].

For the public certificate type: “openssl req –new –key private-key.pem –x509 –days 365 –out public-cert.pem”
Now it will ask you to enter some information, you can just skip them by pressing [Enter].

Now we need to create the p12 file. Type the following in the prompt: “openssl pkcs12 –export –in public-cert.pem –inkey private-key.pem –out my_pkcs12.p12” followed by [Enter].

Razor Code and Configuration for Umbraco Examine Search

Examine allows you to index and search data easily and wraps the Lucene.Net indexing/searching engine. Lucene is super fast and allows for very fast searching even on very large amounts of data. Examine is provider based so is very extensible and allows you to configure as many indexes as you like and each may be configured individually. Out of the box our UmbracoExamine library that is shipped with Umbraco gives you Umbraco based implementations for indexers and searchers to get started quickly.

Step 1: Open the ‘ExamineSettings.config’ file from the ‘config’ folder.
Step 2: Create a new Index Provider in the ExamineIndexProviders section:

<add name="MyIndexer" type="UmbracoExamine.UmbracoContentIndexer, UmbracoExamine"/>

Step 3: Create a new Search Provider in the ExamineSearchProviders section:

<add name="MySearcher" type="UmbracoExamine.UmbracoExamineSearcher, UmbracoExamine"/>

Step 4: Open the ‘ExamineIndex.config’ file from the ‘config’ folder.
Create a new Index Set in the ExamineLuceneIndexSets section:

<IndexSet SetName="MyIndexSet" IndexPath="~/App_Data/TEMP/MyIndex" />

@using Examine;
  var searchTerm = Request.QueryString["search"];
<ul class="search-results">
  @foreach (var result in ExamineManager.Instance.Search(searchTerm, true))
        <a href="@umbraco.library.NiceUrl(result.Id)">

Yahoo Mail SMTP Settings:

         enableSsl="true" />


if (IsPost) {
        library.SendMail("", "", "Subject", "Body", false);

Solved: Handler “PageHandlerFactory-Integrated” has a bad module “ManagedPipelineHandler” in its module list

It turns out that this is because ASP.Net was not completely installed with IIS even though I checked that box in the "Add Feature" dialog. To fix this, I simply ran the following command at the command prompt

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

If I had been on a 32 bit system, it would have looked like the following:

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.21006\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

How to Use CDATA in XML?

All text in an XML document will be parsed by the parser. But text inside a CDATA section will be ignored by the parser.

XML parsers normally parse all the text in an XML document.
When an XML element is parsed, the text between the XML tags is also parsed:
<message>This text is also parsed</message>
 The parser does this because XML elements can contain other elements, as in this example, where the <name> element contains two other elements (first and last):
and the parser will break it up into sub-elements like this:
 Parsed Character Data (PCDATA) is a term used about text data that will be parsed by the XML parser.

CDATA - (Unparsed) Character Data

The term CDATA is used about text data that should not be parsed by the XML parser.
Characters like "<" and "&" are illegal in XML elements.
"<" will generate an error because the parser interprets it as the start of a new element.
"&" will generate an error because the parser interprets it as the start of an character entity.
Some text, like JavaScript code, contains a lot of "<" or "&" characters. To avoid errors script code can be defined as CDATA.
Everything inside a CDATA section is ignored by the parser.
A CDATA section starts with "<![CDATA[" and ends with "]]>":

function matchwo(a,b)
if (a < b && a < 0) then
  return 1;
  return 0;
In the example above, everything inside the CDATA section is ignored by the parser.

  1.  string CDATAStart = "<![CDATA[", CDATAEnd = "]]>";
  2.  LongDescription = CDATAStart + mcLongDescription.Trim() + CDATAEnd;
Notes on CDATA sections:
A CDATA section cannot contain the string "]]>". Nested CDATA sections are not allowed.
The "]]>" that marks the end of the CDATA section cannot contain spaces or line breaks.
