No, I mean PHP.  The 4.2.2 release was a security fix for 4.2.1 only.
None of the changes for the past couple of months, including this one, is
in it.

Yes, you will have them for your whole site.  If you want to limit them to
a certain directory or a certain file, tell them to put the settings
inside appropriate <Directory> or <Location> blocks.

and upload_max_file_size IS being changed by my .htaccess settings...(only 
post_max_size is not working)?! confused..! 8-)

        You can also do this all in a php file without changing the directives in
either .htaccess or the httpd.conf file.

Here is a sample:

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="<? $PHP_SELF ?>" method =
"post">
<input tpye = "hidden" name = "MAX_FILE_SIZE" value = "4096"
#1024 each meg :)
<input name="uploadedfile" type="file">
<input type = "submit" value = "Upload">

Hope that helps,

Subject: [PHP] File Upload size limit


Sorry for bringing up an old problem, (there seem to be many articles in
the archives already) but I couldn't find the solution there so here is my
version of the problem  ;-)

I am running php 4.2.2 on a virtual host, so I have no access to php.ini.
But I can use the apache directives in .htaccess which has worked well for
me so far. So i have the following directives in the .htaccess in the
directory where the relevant upload script is located:

php_value memory_limit 34M
php_value post_max_size 33M
php_value upload_max_filesize 32M
php_value max_execution_time 600

So I have memory_limit > post_max_size > upload_max_filesize

experimentation shows that uploads greater than 8M bomb out. So I check
phpinfo() and guess what? It reports post_max_size = 8M. The other 3 config
settings have been changed correctly from their master (default) values.
but for some reason the post_max_size 33M has been ignored.

I know that some priviledges are required to be able to change these
settings via .htaccess (namely "AllowOverride Options" or "AllowOverride
All" privileges) but i thought that these applied to all the settings. So
since I can change the first three why not the last one?

Can my host stop me from changing a single config? If so how, and what do
they need to change so I can get post_max_size = 33M?

Or have i missed something really really stupid?

Thanks very much in advance


Oliver

Look into http://linuxwebhost.com

The price is higher, features lower, but it works, and that is more
important isn't it?

The only reason I am endorsing them is because I use them and they are
very good. Just don't pay for them with anything besides a credit card

Subject: [PHP] Need a Web Host for php/mySQl

Glory,

I'm looking for a new Web Hosting company, to host my
sites. I had been with Aletia, but i'm experiencing
some technical flaws with them, so i need a new one. 
Aletia is very economical, with $7.95 a month for 200
MB, 10 GB Bandwidth, sub-domains, dbs, and a hell a
lot of goodies. so i would prefer someone like them or
better then them. I'd really appreciate if someone can
find me a better Host.

Thanks,

Hmmm...  Is it a risk?  Well, theoretically everything is a risk; they
might as well just shut down their servers now since they don't want to
compensate for risks.  And anything can be buggy, too, so they'd better
wipe those disks clean of any nasty utilities, servers, or operating
systems.

I guess whether or not it's reasonable depends on what they want their
business to do.  If they want to serve FrontPage web clients and perhaps
a little bit of POP3 email, they don't need php.  They don't need apache
for that matter, either, since it's all configurable and dangerous and
everything.

They are basically saying that what you are paying is not worth the 
effort of upgrading PHP version recompiling ith with such extensions.

They are so many hosting companies in the world, why are you still 
hanging on a company that thinks what you pay is not worth it? It is 
time to switch.

Doesn't pose issues with some spam filters looking for obvious stuff like
2000 names in the Bcc header?

By the same token, is a CSV file faster?

Of course not. Bcc headers are virtual. They do not get sent with 
messages that are delivered to any of the recipients. Do you seen any 
Bcc headers in this message that you got from this mailing list?

It depends on what you do with it, but in general yes as long as your 
new message rate is faster than the subscriber list change rate.

No, good point.  Maybe i'm confusing it with something else I've seen on
this list -- perhaps 2000 emails in the "To:" is the problem :)

So, Bcc is definitely an option -- the only problem I've now got is
personalisation.  I like to be able to provide detailed things such as:
"
You are subscribed as [EMAIL PROTECTED]  To unsubscribe, click on this link:
http://site.com/mail.phpaction=off&id=187 etc etc etc.
"

Even seeing your address in the "To:" can help you unsubscribe (I for
example have multiple address', so trying to unsubscribe from Bcc stuff is a
huge pain sometimes), and this isn't available with Bcc.

I think my ISP also puts a restriction of 100 address' per sent email... or
maybe that's just a rumour :)


Thanks for your help.

Take a look at some of the dedicated mailing list managers, and see if
perhaps you can modify them to get their subscriber list from your
database.  EZMLM by all accounts is very nice, although I believe it
requires Qmail.  Majordomo is another option.

If you don't want the complexity of those types of programs, look at
some Perl-based solutions.  I've been learning Perl as time allows,
and I've found that it's not too difficult if you're already a PHP
person to pick up Perl.  A search on www.hotscripts.com or
www.freshmeat.net may turn up something.

I'm using a very basic Perl-based mailing list manager called
Minimalist, which I am modifying to read it's subscriber list from a
database.  It may be too simple for your needs, however, as it does
not do any spacing of mail delivery or anything like that...but in
case it's useful in some way here is the URL:

That is a much expensive solution because it forces you to queue 
separate messages for all recipients. Message generation will take 
period of time that is proportional (if not exponential) to the number 
of subscribers and it will take much more disk space in the local mailer 
queue because you will be queueing N distinct messages.

An alternative is to have an address to process subscription requests 
that is handled somehow by a PHP script that can lookup your subscriber 
list and provide automatic personalized assistance.

That is a silly restriction that in reality means something else that 
usually is, for the money you are paying you are not allowed to do any 
sort of bulk mailing. If your ISP has that restriction, you'd better ask 
them if you can do any bulk mailing at all because I guess they don't 
want you to.

Hi.

Try something like the link having an ID and the other page that generates
the content pulls that
ID from the uri and then generates the page according to the ID.

Ie. <a href="content.php?id=1">Category: Cars</a> and content.php pulls the
id from the uri with $_GET["id"]
IIRC. Consult the manual about this.

I've run into a problem and there has got to be a way to do this.

I'm searching a mysql table and finding all rows that have the same ID. I need to 
output that ID, but I only want it to print once. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

what about something like a simple select statement eg

SELECT * FROM table where id = $ID;


then do something like

echo $ID
echo $other values.
blah blah blah blah

with the echo in a loop so it gets all the values..

just a thought..

Well, the only problem is, the data will be outputted into a dropdown box, so a loop 
would cause duplicates of the ID. 

Guess I should have mentioned that there are approx 50 ID's and they are not unique. 
The only way I can think of doing it is something like:

$foo = mysql_query($whatever)

while ( mysql_fetch_row($foo) )
{
    if ( $id  == 1 )
    {
             $id1_count ++;
    }
    if ($id == 2)
    {
            $id2_count ++;
    }
}

if ($id1_count >=1)
{
    print "This ID";
}    


But something like that on a larger table will cause problems with server load after 
time (I'm assuming)... 

Any other possibilities out there?

Thanks again.
Justin

Are you just looking for duplicate ID's?  If so, put the work on the
SQL server, not PHP:

select id,count(*) as cnt from table group by id having cnt > 1

When a user hits the submit button I'd like to do some client-side 
validation before sending the form data to the server.

What is the proper way to do this in Javascript? I.e. should I use the 
form's Sumbit button's "onClick()" event to trigger the client-side 
Javascript validation function and the call "document.location.href" 
from the function? (Will this pass the POST data?)

Thanks!

I have jsut recently installed a php development kit on my windows platform.
Im interested in using the session functions but I am recieving this error
when I use session_start():

Warning: open(/tmp\sess_540ded508edf231c47fe85bd970f936a, O_RDWR) failed: m
(2) in d:\phpdev\www\phpdev4\samples\samp13.htm on line 4

 Im assuming it has got to do something with the location it store the
seesion id file. I had a look in my php.ini file and here is the the
following configuration:

[Session]
; Handler used to store/retrieve data.
session.save_handler = files

; Argument passed to save_handler.  In the case of files, this is the path
; where data files are stored.
session.save_path = D:\phpdev\php\temp;

; Whether to use cookies.
session.use_cookies = 1

; Name of the session (used as cookie name).
session.name = PHPSESSID

; Initialize session on request startup.
session.auto_start = 0

; Lifetime in seconds of cookie or, if 0, until browser is restarted.
session.cookie_lifetime = 0

; The path for which the cookie is valid.
session.cookie_path = /

Im not to sure why this is all ways happening. If anyone haas a solution or
knows why this might occur could you please respond or email me at
[EMAIL PROTECTED]

Much appreaciated

Daniel

i wrote an ecard script and added 'send at a future date' feature.
this feature is implemented via cron that runs daily at 1200 hours

$> crontab -l looks like:
00 00 * * * wget http://ecard.domain.com/futuresend.php 2&1> /dev/null

it works great but everyday there will be a file being written to my ecard
directory.

this file is named futuresend.php.1
the next day there will be another file called futuresend.php.2
so on and so forth.

how do i stop Solaris/Linux from spitting this file out ?

Two solutions:

(1) Use lynx (or links) instead of wget, with the -dump option.
(2) Otherwise, use the wget's -O option with a dash to get it to
output it's file to STDOUT, which you are trashing anyway:

wget -O - http://ecard.domain.com/futuresend.php > /dev/null 2>&1

Hey Roger, when you want to write a new email to this list don't reply 
to an existing posting and just change the subject line. It ruins it for 
people who follow messages using threading.

You did that with my message and now both of our "message threads" will

Just a friendly reminder. Please don't do it again.

I would like to be able to do the following:

www.sample.com/path/file.php/additional/path/

Unfortunately on IIS, this gives an error.  Interestingly, the following
does not:

www.sample.com/path/file.php/

I need to have a single PHP script be responsible for a series of resources,
but I do not want to use a query string (for various reasons) to identify
those resources.  So, how can I do this?  Is this an IIS-specific problem or
does PHP just not allow this?

TIA.

Its an IIS problem. With apache there are several ways,
www.phpbuilder.com/columns/tim20000526.php3 is IMO the best way, i currently

Hi all.

I have a small problem here. I have this full-PHP site working with a
MySQL db and came to a dead road when trying to delete a record from it
from the Administrator's page. I have PHP to make this decision after
the Administrator selected the record to delete and answered YES to the
┐Are you sure...? The last part will pass a hidden value of $editpic
which tells the deleting script which artid to delete from the db. This
is the code that does the deletion:

else if ($deleteyes)
{
        $query = "DELETE FROM saav_arts WHERE artid = '$editpic' LIMIT
1";
        $result = mysql_query($query) or die (mysql_error());

        if (!$result)
        {
                echo "The Picture could NOT be deleted<br>";
                echo "<form action=\"".$PHP_SELF."\" method=\"post\">";
                echo "<input type=\"submit\" name=\"cancel\"
value=\"Back to Edition\">";
                echo "</form>";
        }
        else if ($result)
        {

You have made some wrong assumptions in your code here; it is quite 
possible that $result may be true but no entries have been deleted. You 
perhaps should look at the possibility of testing mysql_affected_rows to 
determine whether any rows have been updated/deleted.

WHERE artid = '$editpic' 

implies that you expect artd to be a text field of type char or 
varchar because you have enclosed the value that you are testing in single 
quotes; if artid is in fact an integer type, this query will not affect 
any rows, as the text value will never match an integer field value.

Thanks. I must apology as I made a mistake when writing the incoming
variable's name. I had it wrong so it would pass the variable but the
incoming script was looking for a variable that wasn't passed. In the
meantime, and now that I correct that, I'm still comparing artid to
'$artid' (with single quotes) and it does it well... it is an int(4)
field and now that you mention it... how is it possible?

MySQL lets you compare numbers and strings pretty liberally:

mysql> create table foo (x int, y double);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.02 sec)

mysql> insert into foo values (1, 3.1415);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.09 sec)

mysql> select * from foo where x = '1';
+------+--------+
| x    | y      |
+------+--------+
|    1 | 3.1415 |
+------+--------+
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

mysql> select * from foo where y like '3.14%';
+------+--------+
| x    | y      |
+------+--------+
|    1 | 3.1415 |
+------+--------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

I have PHP 4.0.4p11 on RH Linux 7.1. Today I downloaded PHP 4.1.2-7
rpm packages (10 packages) from RH web site. These packages are
come with RH Linux 7.3. I don't want to upgrade Linux but just upgrade
PHP so I tried rpm -Uvh php-4.1.2-7.i386.rpm. 

I got following error message:

Any idea? Seems like it is impossible to directly upgrade from 4.0.4
to 4.1.2-7....Please advice. Thanks in advace!

Just a thought...

If you have downloaded 10 packages perhaps you need to upgrade ALL of them 
AT THE SAME TIME.

So, instead of doing:

    rpm -Uvh php-4.1.2-7.i386.rpm.

Try this:

1. Put all packages in the same folder
2. rpm -Fvh *.rpm

The "F" (instead of "U") updates all INSTALLED packages only.

I didn't really check but it might work. If not, perhaps, you need to have 
more packages other than the ones you've already downloaded...

I had some headers that were working on one server (4.0.6), but isn't
working on my (nearly) fresh install of 4.2.2.  Here's the conundrum:
    header("Set-Cookie: mid=$mid");
    header("Location: $location");
    exit;
worked just fine.  I moved it over, and now the cookie doesn't take
effect.  But here's the interesting part:  when I interrupt it, then
uninterrupt it, it works.  Let me illustrate: 
    header("Set-Cookie: mid=$mid");
    echo "stop that location header!";
    header("Location: $location");
    exit;
then edit the script to remove the echo and the subsequent error, and
hit refresh, the cookie holds.
This is both in IE and Moz.
 
Does anyone have any clue what might be causing this?  I assume it's
something with my PHP.ini, but can't (seem to) find any significant
differences in the two ini's.  One other feasable difference is that the
4.0.6 was on a *nix box with apache and the 4.2.2 is on 2k's IIS, but I
doubt that is the problem.
 
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Scott

Actually, that *IS* the problem.  This is a bug in the way that IIS
handles CGI-generated headers, and is detailed in knowledgebase
article Q176113.

It seems that if a "Location: " header is sent from a CGI program, IIS
will ignore any other headers that come with it.  So you cannot by
default set a cookie and redirect on the same page.

The workaround is to rename the script so that it begins with "nph-".
(I'm serious).  This stands for "non-parsed headers mode" and it tells
IIS to leave the headers alone.  Then you have to generate the headers
manually rather than using the setcookie() function built into IIS.

I had this exact same problem on a script that I was working on.  In
my script I was attempting to set a cookie and then redirect the
browser upon successful authentication.  When I discovered that this
does not work with IIS + PHP (cgi mode) I moved the login and logout
functionality to seperate files called nph-authenticate.php and
nph-logout.php, and I generate the headers manually, like so:

header("HTTP/1.0 302 Redirect");
header("Location: $location");
header("Set-Cookie: mid=$mid");

it's the WHERE clause, it's illegal there.

what are you trying to do? if you want to change the heading & paragraph
columns of every row in malibu_data where the page_name & par_id match
your values, this should be an UPDATE.

if you want to create a new record in malibu_data for every record
that meets your criteria - which would be a kind of strange thing to
do, but whatever - you'd need to write it like

insert into malibu_data (heading,paragraph)
select '$heading', '$paragraph'
from malibu_data
where page_name = '$page_name' and par_id = '$par_id'


Always try to run your queries in MySQL directly first. You'd
see the same error, and remove worries about any kind of PHP coding
problem.

If you aren't supposed to be able to use func_get_args() as a function
parameter, but you can get away with it if you make it the *first* param,
is that a bug or a feature?

works:
        funcy(func_get_args(), 'p1', 3);
fatal error:
        funcy('p1', 3, func_get_args());

i assume this works because whatever func_get_args() reads gets
rebuilt in the course of processing a new function call. and that
in the 1st case, it hasn't begun the new list yet, so it can
still read the current one.

Hi,

I want to pull information out of my mySQL database and use it as a pull
down menu ona web page.  There are two sets of information that I need, one
is a color, and the other is the color_id, so I want to use it in the way
below but without having to physically enter all the data.  I'd like to use
color_id as the value and the actual color name as the text in the pull down
button.  Can someone please help me on how to pass the info into a useable
way to get the info out of PHP and into HTML?  I've haad no problems going
from HTML to PHP, but can't seem to grasp going the other way, especially
with a list of things.  I've been banging my head against this for two days,
but something tells me it's extremely easy.

Thanks,

Brian

Something like this should work:

  after mysql_connect() and mysql_select_db() ...
  
  $sql = "SELECT color_id,color FROM mytable";
  $result = mysql_query($sql);
  echo '<form blah,blah,blah>';
  echo '<select name="color_id">';
  while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
    printf("<option value=\"%s\">",$row["color_id"]);
    printf("%s</option>",$row["color"]);
  }
  echo '</select>';
  echo '</form>';

PS
Check the manual for printf() if you're not sure how it works...

Just the pseudocode to give you an idea...

query = Select color, colorid from table
run dbquery

<form name="tester" action="script.php" method="get">
 <select name="color">

loop through dbresults
  <option value="<?php echo colorid?>"><?php echo $color?>
end loop

 </select>
</form>

See the mysql functions for exampls of how to submit a query and use the 
results in a while loop.

Hi,

I upgraded php from 4.0.4p11 to 4.0.6 with up2date (a RedHat Update 
Agent). The new php includes a huge manual but I cannot find where is
it after installed, and I don't know how can access it. And more, my free
disk space is only 120M. So I am thinking to uninstall this manual. Any
one know how can do uninstallation? Thanks in advance!

Alex

P.S. thank @ Edwin for your suggestion for upgrading.

I haven't use up2date but perhaps this will work anyway. Open a terminal 
and execute this:

  rpm -ql php-manual

The 'l' will tell you where the package was installed. While,

  rpm -e php-manual

will uninstall the package...

Getting a bit off topic from php - but have you tried 'man up2date' to 
find out how to determine 1) what was installed where and 2) how to 
uninstall it.

As a Slackware user I am unfamiliar with up2date.

Hi,

I'm running the simplest possible script to test headers:

   <?php header("Location: http://www.yahoo.com/";);
     exit;
   ?>

The redirect works fine when I run the script on my FreeBSD server,
but when I run it on my Windows server, it fails. (The Windows Apache
server is at least Apache 1.3, but I don't know the exact version, and
am not sure how to find it on Windows).

In Netscape 6, the failure manifests itself with a blank page and
an empty session file. In IE 6, a "This Page Cannot Be Displayed
(HTTP 500 - Internal server error)" page shows in the browser, and
an empty session file appears in the temp directory as well. The
Apache error log shows nothing.

Is there something that has to be set in the httpd.conf file for
the header function to work properly? If anyone has any ideas, I'd
appreciate hearing them... I'm stuck.

Thanks,

Well, then, in that case, your original problem about the header() has 
nothing to do with an earlier post (about IIS).

Perhaps, you can try installing the latest Apache + the latest PHP and 
everything might just work. I've ask a friend to try it on his 
Win2K(sp2)+Apache2+php4.2.2 and the code was working perfectly 
fine--without doing anything special in httpd.conf...

Some quick thoughts:

Is the $Namak variable being correctly passed to the query?

Have you tried to echo out the query just to see precisely what is being passed to 
MySQL?

On the first line of the query:

        $query  ="Insert into Kel (NIP,Id_kel,Nama,Status)";

You might need a space after ')' before passing it to MySQL.

I'd like to use the crypt() function and have it use Blowfish 
encryption. However it seems that my system doesn't support blowfish 
encryption since I get:

CRYPT_BLOWFISH = 0

My system is a linux RH7.2 box. How can I make blowfish encryption 
available to PHP's crypt?

Use mcrypt. See the manual.

built: php-4.2.2 with openldap 2.0.25

i tried using the ldap_rename function to modify the dn of my ldap db but
nothing seems to happen. the record was not change at all. i have followed
closely the code-snippet that was given by Mr Stig Venaas at:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=php-general&m=100949195224325&w=2

following is my short code to do this:

<?
//connect to LDAP
$ds=ldap_connect("192.168.10.222");
if (!$ds) {
 echo "Connection to LDAP server failed<br><br>";
 exit();
}

if (!ldap_set_option($ds, LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION, 3)) {
    echo "Failed to set protocol version";
    exit;
}

//we bind to ldap server AFTER the ldap_set_option is successfull
//this is an authenticated bind
$r=ldap_bind($ds,"cn=admin,o=Administrators,dc=mydomain,dc=net", "secret");
if (!$r) {
 echo "LDAP bind failed<br><br>";
 exit();
}

// we want to transfer user roger from Civil Engineering to Credit section in
Finance
$r=ldap_rename($ds,
"uid=roger,ou=People,ou=Civil,o=Engineering,dc=mydomain,dc=net",
"uid=roger,ou=People,ou=Credit,o=Finance,dc=mydomain,dc=net",
"dc=mydomain,dc=net",TRUE);


//Close the LDAP connection.
ldap_close($ds);

print "modification done";
?>

please advise.

Sorry for the vagueness of the subject line but I wasn't sure what to put.

Here's what I'd like to do:

1- user comes to my web site with normal (non-SSL) connection
2- user enter login name and password
3- data is submitted to a PHP script via SSL connection to same web server
4- PHP script checks password
5- If everything is ok user is directed to restricted page

The reason I want to use SSL is simple, so that sniffers can pick up a 
clear text password. The reason I don't want to whole site using SSL is 
because of the overhead in incurs.

I figure I can use sessions to force people to log in. If someone 
doesn't log in the proper session variables are not set and they cannot 
get any of the pages on my web site. (each page would check that the 
proper session var was registered).

Is this approached do-able? Is it recommended?

If this approach is ok what I can't figure out is how to get my login 
page to submit data via SSL.

Suggestions welcomed!

Jc
