1. cheap webhosting w/ php provided?

    Date: 08/26/04 (PHP Development)    Keywords: php, software, html, asp, hosting

    i've been using pair networks to host my html only page for www.fablesoft.com for a few years now, but i'm going to need php hosting soon and would rather not pay upwards of $20 just to have php enabled.. i've come across doteasy.com for $9.95 a month... but i dunno, any suggestions? any horror stories?

    one thing i can say for pair is that they are RELIABLE, not that my silly software site needs ultra-reliability hosting or anything, but that's a nice aspect of pair.

  2. how to make an ecard?

    Date: 08/25/04 (PHP Development)    Keywords: php, html, database, web

    Hello! Sorry if this is an inappropriate place to post this, I'm in a hurry and other places have been little help as of yet.

    I need advice. I am trying to create e-cards. I have the images, I need a way of sending them to people. This is for a friend's site that I'm building, and unfortunately she'd really like it within the next two weeks, so I'm trying to find something reletively easy.

    I have found many tutorials on the web - this one seemed fairly straightforward with the exception of the MS Access database. I am new to databases of any kind, and don’t have MS Access. I’d like to be able to convert it to PHP but don’t even have a clue how. I did this tutorial as well, but when I used the PHP file that came with it, no text would appear in the card. When I replaced the PHP file with a new one that supposedly fixes that issue from the message forums, I got an error that a lot of users on the site got, but all of them fixed it without explaining how. I am very new to PHP and don’t know how to edit it correctly. I’ve included the PHP file under a cut tag at the end of the post just in case any of you can see what’s wrong with it out of context.

    In theory I’d like to find either a very basic tutorial or something I can plug my images/info into, if such a thing exists. Thanks in advance for your help, it’s very much appreciated.

    I have this error "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CASE or T_DEFAULT or '}" on line 9. I only included the first part of the text after HTML,HEAD, & TITLE since the error is somewhere in line 9. I’ve tried switching the quotes around and using single quote marks instead of double quotes, etc, etc.

    $ENum = $_GET["ENum"];
    $EcardText = $_GET["EcardText"];
    switch ($ENum) {

       case '1':
       $goto = "Ecard1.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText;
       $gotoFooter = "EcardFooter.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText."&EcardSelect=1";
       $Dimensions = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=525";
       $DimensionsFooter = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=250";

       case '2':
       $goto = "Ecard2.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText;
       $gotoFooter = "EcardFooter.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText."&EcardSelect=2";
       $Dimensions = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=525";
       $DimensionsFooter = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=250";

       case '3':
       $goto = "Ecard3.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText;
       $gotoFooter = "EcardFooter.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText."&EcardSelect=3";
       $Dimensions = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=525";
       $DimensionsFooter = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=250";

       case '4':
       $goto = "Ecard4.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText;
       $gotoFooter = "EcardFooter.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText."&EcardSelect=4";
       $Dimensions = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=525";
       $DimensionsFooter = "WIDTH=700 HEIGHT=250";

       case '5':
       $goto = "Ecard5.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText;
       $gotoFooter = "EcardFooter.swf?EcardText=".$EcardText."&EcardSelect=5";

  3. network status monitor project

    Date: 12/14/04 (Algorithms)    Keywords: browser, html, web

    Here is the gist of some project we are working on

    1) ping defined machines

    we have a ping.c program based on stevens but slightly modified so as
    to suit our project needs , it is basic and only verbose mode has been

    - It outputs to screen if run in verbose mode as ./ping -v localhost 32 2
    here 32 is packet length and 2 is the number of packets to be sent for
    ICMP echo reply
    -we compiled as cc ping.c -o ping

    2) portscan and portcheck

    we scan all ports via portscan.c program that will scan ports
    specified as argiments from start port to end port.
    It connects to ports and returns success else error thats all

    3) pingme file

    this has the hostnames or addresses in dot notation that define whom
    to ping upon .

    4) pinger shell script

    This shell script logs to /var/www/html and file created in pingme.html
    -executes the programs mentioned above and basically reads args from
    pingme file for the programs.
    - the output is logged to html file
    -execute as ./pinger

    5) open in browser
    we open http://localhost/pingme.html in browser

    Results is as below

    Statistics for ping on Mon Dec 13 21:57:51 IST 2004 from machine

    Hostname Reachable? Port 80 Port 21
    localhost: yes yes nope

    * ping
    * portcheck
    * portscan
    * script to integrate all components
    - add html output

    todo for networking project:
    * network congestion check
    * run all periodically
    * add eye-candy to html output

    Now this is project specifications we created

    Implementation of a network status monitor that can perform these steps

    1) ping all defined machines in the network from time to time, and
    alert (by an indicator on a web page or screen) when some machine is
    (2) periodically check HTTP and FTP ports of important machines (like
    your intranet server) to verify that services are running and
    responding properly
    (3) can check if there is any networking problem like ping delay or
    HTTP server responding slow
    (4) sysadmins can add custom service ports (other than HTTP/FTP) to
    their checklist
    (5) your application will then check if those ports are open from time to time

    1,2,4,5 are done so far ...for 3rd step we think some network
    congestion algorithm is needed and implementing it is needed. but
    simulation of congestion in lan is going to be tough right...any
    solutions ideas.....;)

    What more features we can add to this project to make it look l33t and
    impressive ....please do suggest some ideas.

    Deadline is approaching so please hurry....thanks again.

  4. Editing .htaccess File

    Date: 02/25/05 (Web Development)    Keywords: html, hosting

    I can't have SSI in my subdirectories according to my hosting company unless I enter in a few lines of code into the .htaccess file. Simple right, you open it in vi, then edit, and save! Yay it's working, but it's not working. I tried to alter the /var/www/html/ .htaccess file, but it doesn't work. I am not sure why it does because I have tried putting the lines of before and after their code. Then again, there are several other .htaccess files I could edit, but that doesn't make since either. I sent them a message about this, and I will expect an answer in 3-7 days. *roll* Granted, it's not like my page is credit sheerly on SSI, but I do use it for a few simple scripts like the date, time, and modification date.

    Anyone have a clue?

    This is the lines of code I am to enter:

    AddType text/html .shtml 
    AddHandler server-parsed .shtml 
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes

    This is the .htaccess file in the /var/www/html/ directory:
    # -FrontPage-
    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from all
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    AuthName www.mentalward.org
    AuthUserFile /home/virtual/site60/fst/var/www/html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
    AuthGroupFile /home/virtual/site60/fst/var/www/html/_vti_pvt/service.grp

    It worries me to see the "IndexIgnore"

    If this isn't the right place to ask, please direct me somewhere that I can. Thanks!

  5. PHP Blogging Script

    Date: 02/27/05 (PHP Community)    Keywords: php, blogging, html, security

    I hope you don't mind me asking this here (seems a good a place as any, in my opinion), but I've got a quick question.

    Can anyone offer some suggestions on a good PHP-based blogging script? It just needs to work for me (meaning it doesn't have to be community-oriented). All I really need is a subject, entry, basic archives, comments, post icons, html formatting (but auto newlines would be handy), music, moods, screening (security), and ... that's about it. Sounds longer when you write it out.

    I've looked over Bloxsom, and it looks good, but it's only in Perl. I've seen a couple of Bloxsoms in PHP, but not sure what to use...

    I've also seen PHPBBlog, or whatever it's called. Anyone have an opinion on that?

    Of course, like a true PHP Guru, I suppose I should build one myself.

  9. VBScript???

    Date: 01/27/05 (Asp Dot Net)    Keywords: html, asp

    I need to write a vbScript function on the client that is called either after or during the server-side Page_Load event. My boss seems to think I can just throw in script tags, like in old ASP, in the middle of my form and it will fire when it renders the html.
    However, it is not firing, but giving me the error:
    Statement cannot appear outside method body.

    I am assuming I have to put my script in an event of some sort, which leaves me with the page_load, which I cannot use, and a control's event, which I cannot use.

    Does anyone know if what my boss is saying is true???

  13. Problem with anchor links on LJ

    Date: 02/10/05 (Opera Browser)    Keywords: browser, html

    Does anyone else have a problem with LJ comment pages and Opera jumping to the bottom of the page every time you switch a page? This is in cases where there is more than one page of comments on a post, and the page numbers and links are in two places - at the top, right below the entry, and at the very bottom.

    When I click on, say the link to page 2 of comments, the link points to page 2, anchor link named "comments". It switches the page all fine and good, but invariably scrolls all the way down so I have to manually scroll to the first comment on the page. This gets very annoying especially when reading posts with several pages of comments on them.

    I took a look at the source of LJ comment pages and found that they have actually TWO anchor links named "comments" - one at the top with the comment page links, second at the bottom links. I suspect this is the problem. Opera picks the latter link every time, other browsers (IE, Firefox) pick the first one and put my at the start of the comments. Behavior quirk or bug? Would this be the "fault" of Opera or LJ? (I don't think having two links named the same is exactly good HTML at least.) Is there a way to fix it so I could stop scrolling all the way up every time?

    Using Opera7.54u1 build 3918 WinXP, but the behavior has been the same all the way through version 7, can't remember about 6.

  14. VERY Incorrect Statement!

    Date: 01/28/05 (Opera Browser)    Keywords: browser, html, web

    Earlier, I was going through "TotalFark" reading various posted links and ran across an article on "The Observer Online" site entitled, "Stop using Internet Explorer immediately".

    In the article, on page two, third paragraph down, is an outright incorrect statement:

    "Find a Web browser that suits your needs, it doesn't matter which browser you use, so long as it is not Internet Explorer (be careful though, some browsers, like Opera, use the Internet Explorer engine, and so should not be considered safe)."

    Needless to say, I fired off an email to correct them. Haven't heard back yet though. I think the articles author, Lance Gallop, must have Opera confused with the IE shells like Avant or Maxthon.

  16. Decimal Unicode or Hex Unicode?

    Date: 02/25/05 (Mozilla)    Keywords: php, mysql, html, xml, sql

    Do any of you bright minds know WHY some programmers decide to use Decimal Unicode notation (e.g., Firefox), whereas others decide to use Hex Unicode notation (e.g. the Gnome/libxml2/xmllint folks)?

    My wish is that:

    1.) They had all gotten together and decided on just one,
    2.) They had all chosen Hex, padded on the left with zeroes so that all characters are represented by a full four digits (e.g. &#x00C2; rather than &#xC2; for Â), the latter of which is NOT conformant to the Unicode specification, which requires four to six digits, not bloody darn one, two or three).

    I know they are functionally equivalent, and I know it's a simple mathematical calculation to go from one to the other, and that Perl and PHP both probably have built-in functions that I could use to convert from one to the other, but GRRRR. I long for consistency, and god forbid, standards-compliance.

    Also, why if Firefox smart enough to take UTF-8 input in an HTML form and convert it automatically to Decimal Unicode (which mySQL 4.0 can actually understand), but Safari is not smart enough (and of course, neither is I.E., duh).


    Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Safari. Safari is FAR better than Firefox at rendering certain difficult Unicode glyphs, like Devanagari (Sanskrit) that has internal HTML markup inside conjunct consonants (Opera 6.03 comes close on this). However, when it comes to Hebrew, Greek, and Romanian (the others I've had to deal with recently), Firefox is just hands-down better.

    Date: 01/28/05 (IT Professionals)    Keywords: browser, html

    Jailed for using a nonstandard browser
    A Londonder made a tsnuami-relief donation using lynx -- a text-based browser used by the blind, Unix-users and others -- on Sun's Solaris operating system. The site-operator decided that this "unusual" event in the system log indicated a hack-attempt, and the police broke down the donor's door and arrested him. From a mailing list:
    For donating to a Tsunami appeal using Lynx on Solaris 10. BT [British Telecom] who run the donation management system misread an access log and saw hmm thats a non standard browser not identifying it's type and it's doing strange things. Trace that IP. Arrest that hacker.
    Armed police, a van, a police cell and national news later the police have gone in SWAT styley and arrested someone having their lunch.

    Out on bail till next week and preparing to make a lot of very bad PR for BT and the Police....

    So just goes to show if you use anything other than Firefox or IE and you rely on someone else to interogate access logs or IDS logs you too could be sitting in a paper suit in a cell :(

    Update:: The source that told me about this has corroborated it with more detail in private email, but is leery of going public. I hope that more publicly available details appear soon, and will post them when I have them.

    Tridgell is currently working on the next major release of Samba, version 4, that has five goals: protocol completeness, extreme testability, non-POSIX backends, fully asynchronous internals and flexible process models.

    "Samba4 is reaching an important milestone as a complete re-write of the old Samba code with the ambitious goal to be able to become an Active Directory Domain Controller," Tridgell said. "I'm excited about my new role with OSDL and being free to dedicate my energies full-time to Samba."
