use EXPLAIN to get more information about how postgres executes this query.
I'm not sure about this, but there are some issues with fields of type int8.
It may help to cast explicitly the fields involved in join like:
    
     WHERE bible.book::int4 = books.id::int4

Ask it the postgres mailing list, too!
btw, what version of pg do you have?

Subject: [PHP] PostgreSQL query taking a long time


| Hello all,
| 
| I have a PostgreSQL database that is storing The Bible.  It has 31,103 
| records in it and I have a PHP page executing this query:
| SELECT
| books.book_name, bible.chapter, bible.verse, bible.versetext
| FROM asv_bible bible, book_bible books WHERE bible.book = books.id ORDER BY 
| random() LIMIT 1
| 
| The database schema is:
| 
| /* --------------------------------------------------------
|   Sequences
| -------------------------------------------------------- */
| CREATE SEQUENCE "book_bible_seq" start 1 increment 1 maxvalue 2147483647 
| minvalue 1 cache 1;
| 
| /* --------------------------------------------------------
|   Table structure for table "asv_bible"
| -------------------------------------------------------- */
| CREATE TABLE "asv_bible" (
|    "id" int8 NOT NULL,
|    "book" int8,
|    "chapter" int8,
|    "verse" int8,
|    "versetext" text,
|    CONSTRAINT "asv_bible_pkey" PRIMARY KEY ("id")
| );
| 
| 
| 
| /* --------------------------------------------------------
|   Table structure for table "book_bible"
| -------------------------------------------------------- */
| CREATE TABLE "book_bible" (
|    "id" int4 DEFAULT nextval('book_bible_seq'::text) NOT NULL,
|    "book_name" varchar(20),
|    CONSTRAINT "book_bible_pkey" PRIMARY KEY ("id")
| );
| 
| Right now it takes 9 seconds to return the results.  I was wondering if 
| anyone could offer any help with lowering the time it takes to run?
| 
| Or if this is the normal runtime for a database of this size, I'd just like 
| confirmation.
| 
| Thanks,
| Kevin

Hi all, 

I've a problem which I don't know how to get over, think it could more be an
HTML problem, but anyway.

I've a select box with long options names, this makes the box appear huge on
screen.
I was wondering how I can change the size of the box, so that when the user
clicks on the drop down, the options expand outwards.

Is this possible?


Thanks
Sam

Also I'm only on the digest so could you reply to me as well, cheers.

I don't think what you want to do is possible..
and it is a HTML problem :)..
Maybe JScript could do it by populating the dropdown once you click it, but
I don't know if thats possible...

This may make no difference what so ever, but try removing config.cache,
then use my suggestions and see if you get a different result.

Well, that got me headed in the right direction. I ended up combining all 
the commands on one line and removing the references to openssl (I'll mess 
with that later) and it worked. I have no_idea why...

If you installed openssl from something like an rpm or deb package, you
may need to get the -dev version which contains all the libraries
configure is looking for. You may only have the shared libraries and
configure is looking for the header files, etc. If you install those,
configure might properly pick up openssl.

Yeah, I know. It's not an urgent matter, but I'll probably do with that 
what I'm doing with php and mysql, etc.: rip out the rpms (rpm -e) and 
install from source with my own config files, then symlink openssl-whatever 
openssl. Just so much more control that way :))
Thanks!

Hello Everybody,

we have a problem to implement a PGP-function into
a PHP-Script. PHP 4.0.6 as CGI, Apache 1.3.11, FeeBSD 4.2

a)
PGP from the command line works:
% pgps -ato test.sig test.txt -z passphrase

b)
Calling a little PHP Script
$kommando  = "/usr/local/bin/pgps -ato test.sig test.txt -z passphrase";
exec("$kommando",$antwort);

to do so, also everything works fine:

  % virtual /usr/local/bin/php /etc/test-pgp.php
  Creating output file test.sig
  X-Powered-By: PHP/4.0.6
  Content-type: text/html

c)
But when we use this very same PHP-code within a script, and call this
script through the web, it's not working anymore and the error_log
says

  Cannot open configuration file pgp.cfg
  Cannot open secret keyring "secring.skr"
  Cannot open public keyring "pubring.pkr"


Why is that and can this problem be solved ?

Thank you very much.
Juergen

This happens because when you run this from the shell, it's picking up 
your environment. Apache has a completely different environment.

You need to create a dummy keyring for Apache's user in the location
this may provide:

<?php
$effective_user = posix_getpwuid(posix_geteuid());
print 'Apache is: ' . $effective_user['name'];
print '<br>Home is: ' .  $effective_user['dir'];
?>


Or you can use putenv() to make apache temporarily use another $HOME 
that has the correct keyrings.

YMMV

It may be because of that ^^^ line. Try this:

header("Location: dis_3.htm");

Or check your server's error_log (which is bound to give you the reason
why).

Heya,

Can PHP count the number of a certain ftile in a directory and then print
the result to the screen? I have articles on my site that are in XML/XSL
format like:

root/articles/00_head.xml
                    00_body.xml
                    01_head.xml
                    01_body.xml
                    02_head.xml
                    02_body.xml
                    etc... (with appropriate XSL stylesheets too...)

and I want to have a main "article page" with the head.xml info on it:

Article 00:
By: <author>
Date: <whatever date>
Subject: <subject>

and then a link to the article itself (which will be an XSL stylesheet
loading both the header info and the article body.xml).

Can php count the number of articles etc in the dir and then automatically
create the page? (or can anyone think of a better way of doing this???? :-))

Cheers,

Martin

Just a suggestion: use exec("ls -1 root/articles/??_head.xml",$article_files) to
find out the files -- then walk $article_files, parse the file and echo whatever
you please. :-)

u can use the function

function GetDirArray($sPath)
{
//Load Directory Into Array
$handle=opendir($sPath);
while ($file = readdir($handle)) if(($file!=".")&($file!=".."))
$retVal[(isset($retVal))?count($retVal):0] = $file;
//Clean up and sort
closedir($handle);
sort($retVal);
return $retVal;
}
//and then
count($a=GetDirArray($sPath))

configure can't figure out what kind of machine it is. For example, on
this machine:

(/usr/local/src/php-4.1.0)% /bin/bash config.guess
i686-pc-linux-gnu

What do you get when you run `/bin/bash config.guess` in your php source
directory? (Judging by what you wrote, it'll tell you nothing, but just
try it and see. Make sure you are in the top level of the source directory).

Does anybody know of or can recommend any freeware text editing tools for
editing PHP code in Win32?
I can manage with Windows' Notepad but something with code highlighting etc
and of a similar footprint to notepad would be useful.

Deron,

By doing a Post to itself, this form will cause an error everytime someone
clicks the Back button on the browser (after the first post, of course).

What I do is have two forms, first invoked with a get via hot link or
redirect.

Form_1.php checks to see if variable $s has been passed (in the URL, of
course), if not it initializes and displays the form.  The Form action on
this displayed form indicates to "Post" to Form_2.php.

Form_2.php displays nothing, just processes variables on the form.  This one
would insert the row, and to avoid thread problems (multiple simultaneous
inserts, from multiple users) has a unique "autoincrement" variable as the
primary key to the table (MySQL will make the insert "thread safe").  When
the insert is successful this routine redirects the browser back to form_1
like so;

        Header("Location: Form_1.php?s=$insertid");
        Exit;

When control is passed to Form_1.php again, this time the variable $s is set
and the row is retrieved from the table (instead of using initialization
values) and displayed in the form giving confirmation of the updates that
were done.

Because Form_2 redirects to Form_1, Form_1 is the only one on the browser
history list(each separate instance is tracked, of course), and it is always
entered via a Get, meaning that the browser does include the passed variable
values in the history list (it doesn't do this with a Post). And the Back
button works.  In the Post error you are working toward, the browser
complains that it does not have a record of the "Post" variable values (the
Data Has Expired).

There may be other ways to deal with this, but this is one way that I have
found that works.

Good Luck,

Warren Vail

Subject:        [PHP] "Talkback" or community type participation.....

Hi there!

I have this script I just made based on a tutorial I found online and was
wondering if there was a better way to do this or not. Everything works
great so far except for a couple little things. Once the $submit is clicked
and runs the INSERT data into the table... I am looking to be able to have
the page auto refresh and display the new entry as well as the form again.
Here's my current code: (I have this built into the main review page via an
include. The entire page can be viewed here:

http://www.metalages.com/2002/reviews/reviews-test.php?band=Evergrey&album=I
n%20Search%20of%20Truth

Feel free to post a dummy message, nothing is live yet, all in test mode :)

you'll notice once the entry is submitted also, if you try to refresh the
page it wants to readd the data again. any help or guidance appreciated, I
am a self professed "still learning this stuff"! kinda guy.


<?php

  if ($submit) {

  // Process Form

  $DBconn = mysql_connect("localhost", "user", "pass");
  mysql_select_db("databasename", $DBconn);
  if (!$DBconn) {
    echo( "<p>Unable to connect to the " .
       "database server at this time.</p>" );
 exit();
  }

    $sql = "INSERT INTO talkback (band_id, album_id,
talkback_name,talkback_email,talkback_comments) VALUES
('$currentid[0]','$currentid[1]','$talkback_name','$talkback_email','$talkba
ck_comments')";
    $result = mysql_query($sql);
    echo "Thank you! Information entered.\n";
  } else {

Do this:

% echo '<?php phpinfo();?>' > /path/to/web/root/foo.php

(of course, change the path to taste)

Then open foo.php in your web browser. Look for the section titled `gd'

That should tell you everything you need to know about gd support in
your build of PHP.

I had a very hard trouble the other week trying to do a fresh installation
of the newest PHP and Apache on the newest Suse (I think 7.3)
with the GD libaries installed!! Everytime it compiled it refused to include
the imagejpeg or imagepng support GD provides.

I ended up just putting the newsest Mandrake that already has the PHP-GD
library rpm for their apache/php build that is defualt on their servers.
I just spent a lot of time on it and thought I would spare you the trouble
if you are indeed using the newest Suse.... It might also have the same bug
on other installations.

Does this work?

function makeyogurt ($flavour, $type = "") {

         $type = (array) $type;

         ...
}

or

function makeyogurt ($flavour, $type = "") {

         ...

since you CAN'T create functions runtime, unles you are using an eval
expression
but that's even slower that create_function..

function bla() {
}

$test = "bla";
$test();

Is not solving the problem since, it doesn't create a function at RUNTIME it
only references a function..
(it references $test to the function pointer blš)

create_function <= Php command

creates a function runtime.
But thanks for all your time anyway!

Warm regards,
Emile

I missed this thread but:

 a) split takes on regex, explode does not.
 b) spliti is case insensitive, spaces don't have cases.

So, in your example, might as well use explode.

  $words = explode(' ', trim($string));

Although, let's say the following existed (it will):

  $string = 'a b     c  d      e f g    ';

Then using regex might be appropriate, and trim() is always nice.  Let's
split the above string by spaces and basically treat multiple spaces as
one:

  $words = split('[ ]+', trim($string));

Otherwise many empty elements in $words will exist.  This will also make
for a more reliable word count although it won't be perfect.

For examples on posix regex (which is taken on by split), see:

  http://www.phpbuilder.com/columns/dario19990616.php3?print_mode=1

Philip Olson

PHP image generation scripts (GD) that could be used to "pretty" up a statistics page. 
The produced image should be a chart, pie, bars or something similar that could 
visually represent various statistical information. It would be great if one could 
specify background images etc. 

The image should be a bit more beautiful from the pie chart at

A bit more customization and visual attraction would be great.

Hello,

I know I can convert a string to all uppercases with the strtoupper()
function. However, what if the original string contains HTML entities?

EXAMPLE:

original string = "funkst&ouml;rung"
                        contains lowercase o with dieresis (&ouml;)
                        properly displayed by browsers
after strtoupper becomes:
                "FUNKST&OUML;RUNG" which is displayed by browsers
                                         literally, because capital O with dieresis
                                         is &Ouml;
The uppercase version correctly displayable in a browser should be:

        "FUNKST&Ouml;RUNG

How can I convert to uppercase everything except these entities? Is there a 
straightforward solution, or do I really put together a regex that puts in 
lowercase everything from the second letter after an ampersand to the first 
colon?

                Thanks,

Try this:

<?
function htmltoupper($str) {
         $trans = get_html_translation_table (HTML_ENTITIES);
         $trans = array_flip ($trans);
         $str = strtr ($str, $trans);
         $str = strtoupper($str);
         $str = htmlentities($str);
         return $str;
}

$string = "funkst&ouml;rung";

$string = htmltoupper($string);

echo $string;

Hi,

I am using mysql with PHP.
I have one table called inventory with an index field of:
Inventory_Id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment

Now I want to create another inventory table, for a different type say
Royal_Inventory where it also has a
Royal_Inventory_Id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment

However, in my script I want to be able to use the two index fields as one
(in another table) yet differintiate between the two Inventories.
I was thinking if I could make the Royal_Inventory table have one char and
then the auto-increcment value it would be a good solution; like r1 or
r20012121 while inventory (not royal) would have just 1 or 20010210 .

If any of you know how to do this in mysql just send me the line I need :-)
It would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Yoed
