Is there a way to read a FORM varaiable into PHP variable.  The kicker here
is the form variable is in a framed window.

Example, I have my main page in a 2 part frame (90%/10%).  The bottom 10%
has a form on it called 'fileform' with one text box called filevalue

-- source snippit --
<FORM METHOD=POST NAME="fileform">
  <input type="text" name="filevalue" readonly maxlength=11 size=11>
</FORM>
-- end snippit --

Now inside the 90% window, I have ANOTHER frameset (broken into 3 parts.. a
left menu bar, a bottom instructional bar, and a main window.  I NEED the
main window to grab the value from the 'fileform.filevalue' and return it to
a PHP variable.

Any ideas????
Dave

What do you mean, "return it to a php variable"?

The closest I can come to understanding your question is that you want
the form input in your bottom frame to be sent to another frame in your
top window for submission.

If that's any place close to correct, you need a javascript solution. In
any case, it won't/can't become a "php variable" until it is sent back
to the server. So why not submit the form from your bottom frame with a
target of the frame that you need the variable in and refresh that
frame?

You wan to submit the form and display the results in another frame?
What is you FORM action above?
I assume some PHP program.
You have to submit the form, PHP is server side.
You want the results to go to a certain frame window.
I have no idea, maybe the TARGET="frame window name" attribute as part of your FORM.

- You can use an absolute path. 
- You can also specified all the includes path that will be find by php 
automatically in your php.ini. You might want to specify your /libs directory 
there, if you're including a lot of files from that directory.
Either or both should work

Greetings all, I am using fOpen to try and create a new file in a local directory on a 
remote server. Each time I run my script is says "PERMISSION DENIED" but the sys admin 
swears the entire directory is set to 777.

Does anyone know if a setting has to be set in PHP for dynamic file creation to take 
place?
I can use fOpen to read a file, I just cant write without the above error.

Please, any help is appreciated, my deadline is looming.

Thanks

Because sometimes you just want to check if something is set due to null, 
'' and 0 being important.

   $var = '';
   empty($var);  // evaluates to true
   isset($var);  // evaluates to true

   unset($var);
   empty($var);  // evaluates to true
   isset($var);  // evaluates to false

Yes.  They do the same thing.  Couple things to think about, though.  If 
$_GET['op'] is 0, those commands will turn it into ''.  Probably not what 
you want.  Also, though less important, if it's already '', there's no 
need to do the step of resetting it to ''.  Sometimes, a cleaner test is:

  $op = isset($_GET['op']) ? $_GET['op'] : '';

I just moved my domain over to phpwebhosting.com. The transfer went very
smoothly and so far I've been satisfied. The only hitch I can see in
your requirements might be the background processes (bots, what?). But
it's probably worth asking them about.

Not exactly, but in some aspects it is/will be better like the ability 
to generate executable standalone PHP programs that you can distribute 
independently. There is also the question of the price that for Zend 
Encoder is ridiculously expensive.

Other than that, if you're main concerne is protecting your PHP code, 
you can do very well with bcompiler.

Definetly YES, because you do not need compile the scripts before each 
execution as they are already executed. Think about the speedup more or 
less like you were using Zend Cache, except that you do not need to pay 
a fortune to use it! :-)

I am trying to create a really simple proxy using PHP.

Basically, i need to:

1. read in the contents of a URL.
2. get the content-type
3. set the content type for the response
4. write the contents of the URL to the response.

here is what i have thus far:

$dataURL = "http://www.foo.com/data.xml";;
$fp = fopen($dataURL, "r");
$content = fread($fp, true);
echo($content);
fclose($fp);

I am running into two problems. One, the second param for fread takes 
the size of the file / content. how do i get this?

there is a comment at:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.fread.php

which says to just specify a constant and it will work, but what ever 
number i specify, that is the amount of data that is read.

how do i retrieve the content type?

thanks for any help...

Yes!  Unfortunately, you'll have to install the special driver on the
Linux/Unix becuase of the communication difference between UNIX & Windows as
well as the language difference between these two.  I tried using iODBC and
openLINK.  After 1 1/2 years, I decided that open source code for this is no
good because they are not compactable and it is such a big, big pain in the
butt!!!  So, I ended up moving the website on UNIX to windows.  Why, because
of the way the data type is being coverted between 2 platform and character
length or type is strictly limited.  I have not tried to buy such a $600 or
$800 driver software to see how well it does because it is a waste of money
and MS kept changing the programming in the MS Access and MS SQL making the
drivers useless.

Nope, never done it.
It'll use the same PHP database commands probably.

Hi List,
I need your help.
I wrote my classes with php where I defined my objects, then I created my 
repository in  /usr/share/php , in this directory are my clasess.
Now, from my directory web I like to call to my classes, then I modified my 
php.ini (/etc/php.ini) and inserted this line, in the option "Paths and 
Directories"
       include_path = ".:/usr/share/php"
and restart apache.
In my page index.php I call to my class with this form
       <?

First thing first!  Open up the terminal and log in.  Then type the command,
if the machine doesn't reboot or if you got an error message, it meant the
command is not correct.  Once you get the correct command then use it in
PHP.  It's much simplier that way.  If PHP can't reboot the machine then it
mean many things, like no authority to do it or path statement, shell, etc.

For linux, it use "shutdown -r now"
For some UNIX, it use "shutdown -Fr" or "shutdown -r", etc.

I just upgraded to PHP 4.2.2 and am trying to make my sites work with
register_globals turned OFF. I notice, however, that with register_globals
turned off any variables I pass via the URL don't seem to be recognized by
the script it was passed to.

So, if I pass "http://my.site.com/page.php?id=2002";, the variable "id" is
empty when I try to access it in page.php ...

if (!empty($id)) { do stuff...}
else { echo "error"; }

With register_globals OFF, the above produces the error message. With
register_globals ON, it works fine.

I thought register_globals only affected session, cookie and get type
variables? Why is PHP ignoring the variables passed via the URL?

Thanks.

'variables passed via the URL' = 'GET variables'

Thanks, Steve.  So, does this mean I now have to re-declare all vars passed
via the URL or a form POST in every script that uses them? Or is there a
quicker, easier way to make use of these vars with register_globals off in a
script?

Thanks!

Variables passed via the URL are GET variables.  In v4.2.2 you can use
$_GET['variable_name'] to access them.

Nah... "" and NULL (and I suppose "\0") are all being changed to the
string "" before PHP attempts to add it. What I think the LDAP server
tries to say, is that the syntax doesn't accept an empty string as
value. I tried to create an LDIF file containing an attribute with no
value, like this:

dn: cn=stig,o=photos,dc=venaas,dc=no
objectClass: photo
cn: stig
description:

and I got exactly the same error from ldap_add(1). So this is in my
opinion an LDAP issue and not a PHP issue. OpenLDAP 2 has more
proper schema checking. Perhaps you could try to turn off schema
checking? Or I guess in theory the syntax for the relevant attribute
could be made more relaxed. You could try to ask about this on the
openldap-software list if you need more LDAP help.

The problem is that $info contains not just the LDAP data, but also
a list of attributes, like say $info[2] == "st". I wish that were
never put in there, but we have to live with it now. You either have
to create a new array with exactly you want in the entry (or I guess
remove these extra values, use var_dump($info) and you should see
what I'm talking of), or instead use ldap_mod_replace() using say

$mods["st"] = "stchamged";
ldap_mod_replace($ds, 'uid=testing,cn=online-leagues.com', $mods);

I'm having trouble getting the XML string to be broken up into the PHP
array.  Here's how it work.  I send the XML request in a string to the
credit bureau through cURL and vice versa.  Most of the PHP scripting I
found everywhere spoke about breaking up the xml tag into the array only
when they come from the file and is use for parsing.  Problem here is it is
illegal to store the credit inquiry information to a file on the server
except temporary storing it in the RAM but then it will have to be destroyed
when it is done.  I don't need to parse it, just want to use the tag name as
the name in the array with the data from the tag as data to that array name.
What is the work around for this??

Thanks,
 FletchSOD

The example on my page you looked at does get the stuff from a file, BUT,
it takes that content and puts it into a string.  All the xml_parse()
function needs is the string.  So, just feed it the string you get back
from the agency.

I'm using PHP4 and MySQL --

I'm trying to write a small search engine -- got it working, however, what
I'd like to do is return the TOTAL records found.

You see, right now I am using LIMIT within my SQL -- so I only return 15
results at a time.

How do I get the total (say for example there are 2000 records) -- do I need
to COUNT(*) first, then perform another SELECT query for my search?

Or, is there a PHP/MYSQL command that returns the total records matching my
SELECT query irregardless of the LIMIT ??

Thanks
Jason

  You could select everything, count the results, and just show 15 results.

  I am not sure that a COUNT() with LIMIT will perform the desired effect.

You cannot have COUNT(*) without having GROUP BY -- hence, by search query
will not produce the desired results -- I'm thinking that there may be
something within PHP or MySQL (a Function) that reports the total found for
a query whether or not a LIMIT clause is used?

    print "<html>\n";
    print "<head>\n";
    print "<title>Testing regular expressions</title>\n";

    $string = $_REQUEST['string'];
    $pattern = $_REQUEST['pattern'];

    print '<form action="parser.php" method="POST">' . "\n";
    print 'STRING:<input name="string" value="' . $string . '" size="10"><br><br>' .

I have have a PHP script that is core dumping, I'm trying to find out
exactly where.  I carefully followed the instructions on

http://bugs.php.net/bugs-generating-backtrace.php

with a little help in creating an apache debug build using:

http://www.bowiesnyder.com/writings/gdb_apache.htm

however, when I get to the end bit where it's supposed to print out the
function that was causing the seg fault (I've already typed "frame x"
where x is the lowest-numbered execute() call), I get crap:

(gdb) print (char
*)(executor_globals.function_state_ptr->function)->common.function_name
$2 = 0x83a2be0 "\221/\b\024J\b[\b0\b"

where it should say, according to the bugs.php.net page above, something
like:

(gdb) print (char
*)(executor_globals.function_state_ptr->function)->common.function_name
$14 = 0x80fa6fa "pg_result_error"

I can't find any docs anywhere on what else I can ask executor_globals
for... getting executor_globals.active_op_array->function_name returns
one of my functions, but that's not terribly useful without knowing what
line of it caused the segfault.

Any suggestions for futher probing?

What is the difference from using $_GET['some_var'] from using $_REQUEST['some_var']?
I think the documentation says either can be used to do the same thing.

What is the performance difference from having register_globals turned off from having 
it turned on?
I assume the default was changed for performance reasons?

    I don't know what else to title this message with, hence the subject.

    I have a script that defines a few variables like this:

    $var_list1 = Array(...);
    $var_list2 = Array(...);
    $var_list3 = Array(...);
    etc.

    Further down the script I have this piece:

    while (list($key,$value) = each($var_list)) {   // which $var_list?
      if ($$value == '') {
        $url .= "&".$value."=";
        $error = 1;
      } else {
        $url .= "&".$value."=". urlencode(stripslashes($$value)) ."";
      }
    }


    That same script also gets a value ($step) from another one.  Now I need to
figure out which $var_list# to use based on this $step value.  Any suggestion
on how to do this?

I'm trying to use the more secure "register_globals=Off" setting for some
simple scripts that do authentication and use sessions. But I'm ready to rip
all my hair out!

Can someone recommend a good article online that clearly discusses what's
different when you have register_globals=Off? I've spent hours looking
through the PHP site but I'm just as confused as I was before I started. I
thought this setting only affected global variables, but, there are all
kinds of things not working properly, like the header() function. It just
won't work at all with register_globals=Off, but works just fine when I
switch it back on! 

Thanks.

Look at the chapter "Session handling functions". The setting of 
register_globals affects the using of sessions.

It's called SuEXEC in Apache and compiled in the core of Apache, it's not a
module.

What it does, it allows Apache to use the Group and User directives inside
virtual hosts.

For example:

<VirtualHost whatever>
  DocumentRoot /blah
  User cust001
  Group cust001
</VirutalHost>

In this case, all files in /blah would be owned by cust001:cust001 and
permissions as strict as 0600 can be given on the files in the directory.
Apache's processes serving requests on this virutal host, will drop
permissions to user and group cust001 as specified in the configuration, so
apache would have access to read it.

In other virtualhosts, either the default user / group is used, or they are
specified uniquely in a per-virtualhost basis.  The other virtual hosts will
thus run with different uid/gid meaning that other virtualhosts will not be
able to include code in other virtualhosts, even when they know the paths.

Because Apache drop permissions to the user/group specified, they will not
have access to read/write/execute the included filename in a different
virtualhost.

How ever can ant of the apache restrictions stop any one from including the
script by giving the whole path.

ie /home/htdocs/include.inc or /home/abc/include.inc

Yes or No ?
I use win 2000 so it is not possible for me to experiment! but I have
hostings on servers like www.f2s.net and a project on www.sourceforge.net

If you are familiar with these systems, what do you comment?

I know there has to be an easy way to do this, but I just can't find the
answer.  I need to strip out the first part of a text string.  I've
figured out out to strip out the last part of a string using the
following:

$address = (4455 N. 45th St.);

$test = strstr($address, " ");
echo $test;

The variable $test returns N. 45th St. without the 4455.  Is there a way
to reverse this so I can just return 4455?

Thanks,
-Elkan

Use strpos() to find the position of the first space then substr() to extract 
from beginning to the space.

I'm not sure how sendmail works, but I think exim has a setting that you
have to set so it will allow you to send email as a different user.
Maybe there is something like that you need to set for sendmail also.

Hi,
I am creating a session for user autentication. As I
read from the help there are two ways for passing
session IDs
-Cookies
-URL parameter.

By default its passing it through cookies. I don't
want to use any cookies in my program. Can anyone tell
me how to go for the other way? i.e. through URL
parameter??
Thanks,
Varsha

Look in php.ini and set "session.use_cookies" to 0.

Apache2 is not supported yet.
The latest version from CVS (Concurrent Version System) might work.
If you don't have CVS then use Apache 1. :-)

Hello All,
        I have the following lines in my program to disable the caching with the 
client.    

<?
header("Expires: Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT");// Date in the past
header("Last-Modified: " . gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s") . " GMT");// always modified
header("Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate");  // HTTP/1.1
header("Cache-Control: post-check=0, pre-check=0", false);
header("Pragma: no-cache");
?>

But still the clients cache my pages.Installed versions in my server is PHP 4.2.2 and 
Apache 2.0.39.
Is there any other way to go.
Any help is appreciated.

Advance thanks and regards,
Senthil.

What is the difference from using $_GET['some_var'] from using $_REQUEST['some_var']?
I think the documentation says either can be used to do the same thing.

$_REQUEST holds everything from $_GET, $_POST, and $_COOKIE combined, thus you 
cannot differentiate where the value came from.

If you want to be sure, be specific and use one of $_GET/$_POST/$_COOKIE.

There is no reason other than knowing where it came from to choose one method over the 
other?
For *most* applications it would seem that using REQUEST is better planning.

The index will not do magic by itself, especially if it is not unique.

Sometimes your queries need to be rewritten

Most likely they use Oracle or something as sophisticated that among 
other things can do table partitioning.

Real search engines do not use SQL databases.

Yes, MySQL is good but it is not magic. You can stretch it a bit with 
some optimization of your setup, but what often works better is 
rethinking your application. Does it really need to store 3 million records?
