  1. There's some general information at the linked page below. Maybe it can help. From what I gleaned, Visual Studio is well-supported for compiling httpd on Windows and Cygwin/Mingw and other compilers need tweaks. https://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/platform/win_compiling.html
  2. Wow. That's very elegant! I like your approach.
  3. I don't have much experience with Cygwin except installing it. Try running ./configure --help to see what options are available. I think you need to run ./configure with those options. Then try running make again.
  4. Eclipse supports JavaScript and I use it. I also use text editors like sublime text and notepad++. They're all good. I use Netbeans too.They're all good. I think what matters is your preference.
  5. It's a compressed file archive. Extract the contents of the archive just as you would do for a .zip extension.
  6. You can wrap the output in <pre></pre> tags. But this too is HTML (you're sending data to a web browser so you may not always escape it) and it may cause the output to display in monospace fonts.Also, the nl2br() function can be used; you can also use heredoc to format your text so you won't need n.
  7. Won't this code perform the database insert even if success=false?It seems testing for success before the connection to database satisfies his request.Maybe by adding && $_GET['success'] == 'true'to the if condition in the first segment of php will be good.
  8. You want to reverse an accidental submission to a database, correct? That's what my suggestion is intended to address.The code above does not interact with the server. Most likely, it will be helpful in confirming form submission. If the user clicks 'ok', the request proceeds, else it fails. And the buttons aren't what I meant: they're JavaScript dialog buttons, not HTML.You can do it without AJAX.Did you understand my suggestion?
  9. I think he wants to provide a remedy for mistakes in form submission. He can do it by form or by AJAX. I'm not good at this but I may provide pseudocode instead.
  10. It seems you're using two buttons in the markup: one for 'submit' and the other for 'cancel. You can add an onclick function to the cancel button that sends an AJAX query to the post destination to check the database and reverse the last update.Your PHP code can set a variable, say $prev_data, to the previous state of the data in the MySQL database before updating it with new data. If the user, after submitting the update completely, decides it was a mistake, the 'cancel' button sends an AJAX request; the PHP code tests the request for a condition then updates the database with the data in $pr
  11. I had same problem with WAMP. Stopping the web server in the IIS control panel, as Justsomeguy suggested, can resolve it. You can also make one of the servers to listen on a different port.
  12. That will work: on all files in the home directory, I think.Maybe you should consider naming your files semantically. For example, you may suffix files intended to have read-write permission with '_rw' before the file extension and use wildcard matching to set the permission on all of them at a time.(example:example_rw.txt, example1_rw.html...exampleN_rw.php$ chmod a+r /home/*_rw.*)I don't know if such would work but I hope you get the point. Just try it for yourself.I haven't used UNIX or LINUX before: I'm just a beginner with windows. I've seen so many recommendations for linux systems to pr
  13. I think this may help:Opera Mini: Web Content Authoring Guidelines
  14. Hello. I'm don't know python and I'm still a beginner with PHP and JavaScript.The code above seems like a python implementation of the following in JavaScript:x = parseInt(prompt('enter a number', ''));Is this correct?
