  1. You left out stupid statements
  2. I've not had the opportunity (yet) to post the official message - but it was a combination of exceeding limits and outdated software. Both issues were not only resolved but addressed to prevent the issue from occurring in the future.
  3. Everything is a matter of perspective. One could easily debate there (w3fools) approach is not the most appropriate way to initiate change. But the simple fact is, if there is misinformation, errors, or any other inaccuracies they should be fixed. The authors of w3schools are making changes and corrections. It may be one's opinion that these changes are taking too much time - but they are being made and that is surely better than them not.Here are a couple articles dating back to the beginning of the year when this was "in the news" that might be of interest to some:W3Fools Takes on W3SchoolsW3Schools Responds to W3FoolsWhat is comforting to me, having been associated with w3schools (particularly the launch and success of the forums), is that this has not turned into a mud slinging battle. I respect Kai Jim and the rest of w3schools authors/staff for not getting sucked into what could have easily turned into a situation that would really turn people off. Instead, the response to the criticism (whether you like the angle or not) has been well played and everyone benefits - w3schools.com is being updated, w3fools mission/egos are being served, but most importantly the end user (the web development community) is getting the best, most user friendly collection of online web development tutorials.
  4. Yeah that's where I started too. An index file of each extension (php, asp, aspx, cfm, htm) with a functional tag of each respective language and opening in localhost all worked out. But then ... lol ... I think its working, I probably just have to close out of Firefox as it has proven to cache alot of DNS related stuff.(vm server is rebooting)
  5. err, but only by server name (local and remote). When I access the site pages using the domains I entered in the host header I get the 500 Internal Server Error. But lets see if that is a caching issue that get resolved after I do a shut down, snapshot, and power up....
  6. I tried it but since I"m not well versed in PHP I can't tell if it does a good job or not. I do know it's only for IIS7...ok so I was multi-tasking (writing and setting up) and it turns out that after I used the tutorial you referenced I (tried a few other things) and then used PHPManager for IIS and simply "registered" php with it and everything works now. I know what I did but it is a little bit of a blur because of how many times I did, undid, redid various things.I'll have to save this snapshot and try it again (for fun).Thanks for the reference, it definitely help (somehow).
  7. I am suspecting it is a permission issue but I"ve run through all the options I can imagine or have found in the research I did.I've used both local and domain user accounts/groups and run into the same thing. I'll check out the tutorial you posted - thanks - and let you know what I get.What sucks is that I can't run the same site of 32bit PHP and 64bit ColdFusion - as it seems. It would be nice if I didn't have to associate the application pool with the web site or at least have it set to run off the default pool assigned to an application language (if you get what I mean).Ideally, I'd like to have asp, php, and coldfusion pages in one web site so I can migrate everything more seamlessly. The jury is still out on whether or not I can do that. I think I can - I should anyway, I'm not sure why the site cares when its the engine behind the request (php, asp, cfm) that needs to know.(I digress)I'll let you know if that tutorial helps.ThanksBTW : Have you used PHPManager for IIS?http://phpmanager.codeplex.com/
  8. I have a VM Server I"m setting up for my test applications - Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit.I, simply, can't get PHP to work and I've followed a lot of processes: used installed, didn't use installer, used v5.3.x, used v5.2.x, used thread safe, used non-thread safe, used isapi, used fastcgi, and with all other other tweaks (application setting to make it run in 32bit mode) and I still end up with a 500 error.Here area a couple of links I referenced:http://www.codingday.com/php-installation-...-windows-vista/ http://www.iishacks.com/2011/02/14/how-to-...ows-2008-iis-7/http://www.lazynetworkadmin.com/knowledgeb...-server-2008-r2I've been taking snapshots of my server just before trying each one and I've been able to successfully load asp, aspx, htm, and even ColdFusion pages. Now, I understand int eh Default WebSite those are running in 64 bit and when I switch them to my 32 bit pool I expect them to crash (their engine is a 64 bit afterall) but then I expect PHP pages to load and they don't.Anyone else have this much problem with PHP on a 64 bit platform? Any advice?BTW, I need PHP because I am migrating two web sites to ColdFusion.
  9. Pretty much done - just need to build out my review detail pages.Website-in-a-day project continues...[8 hrs. in so far]
  10. I'm not looking for anything specific here - so go to town. Any and all criticism/suggestions welcome.Thank you in advance.http://reviews.iribbit.net/
  11. That is funny - a corporate site done in well formatted [anything].lolMy analysis thus far has: 2,328 pages (not that bad) 523 web forms 206 mailto references (which equals spam) 75 server side mail functions 2,484 orphaned files (lol - but understand that includes things like .htaccess 'cause not linked to) 1,108 broken links 8 public application integration points (where we use a vendor with an associated domain) 11 private application integration points (where we use a vendor with an associated domain) 2 databases with 34 tables between them Needless to say, I wasn't expecting to see well-formatted pages - lol.
  12. So I've been digging around trying to find a software program that I can use to mine some basic information from a website. The short of it is, I've got a new job and will be managing several web sites. I need to get an idea how each of these sites link back anbd forth to each other or to other areas. And, I need to understand the myriad of server and client side technologies being used - a sort of detail summary of how many times a particular file extension is used in link or form.I've downloaded these two applications - both falling short of my requirements:GSiteCrawlerDRKSpiderAgain, basic requirements for a report/export:a.) a count and list of unique domains and sub-domains referencedb.) a count and list of file extension referenced throughout the site - a href, form action, document.location,etc.Anyone have any suggestions?
  13. This could be the right direction. Is the web server and the database server used to be on the same server (hardware/box) and they are not separated - then I would look there first. Test your network connection between each box and ake sure your new box (the new database server) is built correctly, i.e. enough memory and processing power and not being bogged down by something else.Tackling all that, would address the location and hardware aspects of my advice. From there, it is software and programming.Nothing else has been introduced into these environments? Is this correct . . . OLDBox A - Apache, PHP, MySQLNEWBox B - Windows/IIS, PHPBox C - MS SQL
  14. That information does help, but it still leaves the finer (more important) details out. You seem to be describing what your set up is now. What was it before. I understand the operating system has changed, was the database on a separate sever before? Was MS SQL installed on the old MySQL server before? If you removed the "LIMIT" restriction from your queries, did you replace them with "TOP"?Without these answers, I could speculate your slow down could come from a server that once only had MySQL installed and now has MS SQL on it as well - hogging/consuming more resources.ORIt could be as simple as removing LIMIT. There would be a big difference in PHP outping everything a query returned if the query had a LIMIT 10 versus an unlimited query return 10,000 record and PHP capping the display to 10.These are the types of analysis you need to dig into if you really want to get to the bottom of this.Location, hardware, software, code.:-)
  15. You have to handle that melodramatically - although someone might know a little more about MySQL and therefore there could be away that I am not aware of to handle this strictly int he database (I'm not 100% sure). In code, though, you could write your insert/update queries several different ways to pull off the same end result.
  16. There isn't anything real tricky about this. It is all static content manipulated by advanced javascript and CSS definitions. Using hover actions and javascript to change the propoerties of na object (div) you can swap out content - view the source and you'll see all the content there, it's just swapped out using hover and js.Expanding that concept, one would use something called AJAX - which would dynamically populate that region of content through javascript calls to a remote database, where you would not be able to see anything in the source code that resembles the content displayed on the page.Does that help?
  17. That is quite a change. First, you need to eliminate certain variables. Like, most notably, the environment. Is this on the same server or network? Was this migration internal to external or vice versa? That is where I would start.From there, I would look at the SQL scripts - converting them from MySQL to MS SQL could have introduced several changes - especially if you're talking about store procedures and views.But, in general, for what you describe, here is the order to analyze the changes in:1.) location2.) hardware3.) software4.) programmingIn this order, determine what has changed and if that could have made a difference based on what is known about the respective advantages and disadvantages of the products being compared.Hope that helps.
  18. Send me a PM with a link to your existing site and what programming needs you specifically have. I will share my rate and an estimate.
  19. Its going to be a little more complicated that what is offered by thescientist - I think.You could try a subquery but I think you'll run into limitation on the WHERE or ORDER BY clauses. In a stored procedure, you could use a combination of queries and temp tables to the results you're looking for.
  20. The TITLE attribute offers advisory information about the element for which it is set.re: http://www.w3.org/TR/html40/struct/global.html#h-7.4.3Although I've never used TITLE in the BODY tag, I could see it be used similarly to that of the META name DESCRIPTION. Technically, one could use it for search engine optimization, but having never used it in that respect, I'm not sure what value there is. Since META tags, in general, are useless with respect to SEO, I could see the TITLE attribute in the BODY tag being used as mentioned because of that. Don't get me wrong though, there are plenty of proper uses of META tags as they relate to search engines - but not for rankings.I'm not sure what version of IE you're using, but I just did a little test and I can confirm that a tooltip is displayed by FF 4.0.1, IE 8.06, OP 11.0, CH 11.06, and SF on my Windows XP Professional Desktop.
  21. Free will come with ads.Ads will imply free hosting.Free hosting will imply cheap.Cheap will communicate unprofessional.If this is a portfolio and you truly intend to point potential clients there and you really want this to work out in the long run, then I would suggest investing some cash. Without knowing your site technical requirements (language, database, etc.) I couldn't give a strong recommendation right now. You can get hosting services for as little as $5 a month - even cheaper I'm sure. But you get what you pay for so think about it.
  22. It's possible, but in a hosting environment that you don't control, the technical requirements to make it possible are not likely going to be permitted.Having said that, one question I would ask is if the second site needs the database from the first site in real time? If not, how often would it need to be updated. The solution here would be to FTP the database from Site A to Site B on a regular schedule - of course, you would code your site to make sure all database connectivity was disabled during that time. This is not pretty, but its an option.Alternately, you could build a series of web services that synchronizes your data between the the two sites. Again, you can do this in real time or have it a scheduled task. Without know how much traffic and data we're talking about, I couldn't tell you whether this route is feasible either - but its a step up (at the very least) from the first solution.Does that help?By the way, unless there is an offline need/use for the data to be stored in MS Access, you should really migrate the data to something more appropriate for web use - like MS SQL or MySQL.
  23. <cfscript>objNTAuth = createObject("java", "jrun.security.NTAuth");objNTAuth.init(arguments.domain);objNTAuth.authenticateUser(arguments.uname,arguments.pword);request.status = objNTAuth.GetUserGroups(arguments.uname);result = "pass";</cfscript> Turns out, when I try it with straight Java, I get the same results. So, my issue is not what I thought it was but rather a network services staff member changing things around without my knowledge. The results I was coding for here was no longer being returned due to the changes the staff member made in Active Directory. Brilliant!
  24. Good - is subjective. You're going to need to define a little bit more about the functionality you desire. There are a ton of "good" pre-coded news flash and gallery applications out there. But they vary from being simplistic with little or no creative functionality to being extremely complex and utilizing databases and server side scripting.For what it's worth, Light Box is a commonly used gallery that I've found to be very flexible - handling static and dynamic content. As for news, it is usually easier for me to code one myself (this is heavily dependent on your requirements).
  25. I am coming across an issue where the results of this tag are being truncated. In the dump of the results, the status.groups value is limited to 66 characters. Is this a windows of coldfusion issue? <cfntauthenticate username="#arguments.uname#" password="#arguments.pword#" domain="#arguments.domain#" result="status" listgroups="yes" throwonerror="no" />Anyone ever see this?
