TRAIN TRACK Web Version User Manual




This application needs to be installed by an IT professional with knowledge about your network and web server. She/he must know how to set up a web application to run on your intranet, with appropriate security in place. She/he will also need to set up a DSN on the server, and install the SQL Server database. Liberty Labs cannot provide support for your network connection issues or your web server configuration.

The web-based interface is designed to work with the client/server application and run on your web server. Before installing the web components, the client/server application should already be in place. You may wish to use a test copy of the database for testing prior to releasing the application to end-users.


1. Set up TRAIN TRACK Client/Server version.

See instructions that came with the client/server application files.

If the web server is running on your local computer, you can use localhost instead of a domain name. Enter one of the following localhost URLs to match your web server:


If the page doesn’t open as expected, check for the following errors:

4. Create a new folder for the application inside the root folder.

For example, using IIS, \Inetpub\wwwroot\TRAINTRACK\

5. Unzip the .asp files into this folder.

6. Set up a DSN on your web server. 

Add the user IUSR as a login. Under user mappings, select the database and assign datareader and datawriter  to the user.

7. Open your web browser and Browse to the location of the .asp files.

For example: http://www.localhost/TRAINTRACK/login.asp
