Hi All,
Does anyone know if there is a good php development environment around, you
know something that will hold a list of functions/classes so you don't have
to scroll through thousands of line of code looking for a few lines of
spurious code...and all the other goodies that come with that sort of
thing.. At the moment I use homesite which is pretty cool and makes all me
lines come out in pretty colours, but I am getting frustrated as things are
growing..
Thanks..

Biggest downside to it is that it doesn't manage your projects.

I use the Maguma Studio environment (http://www.maguma.com/). It features
some pretty little colors in the code too. It also makes it easy to find
what you need from all your classes and other files in a convenient style,
and it is almost totally customizable. You can even customize PHP and HTML
tags and variables, etc. Not to forget that all lines are numbered and it
has a find feature. It has it's own browser that acts like IE's browser to
test your scripts while you write them. It also has an autocomplete feature
(kind of like with Interdev). Give it a try, I'm sure you'll like it. I like
it better than Homesite, Dreamweaver, Interdev or lower-end environments.

Hi
I'm wondering if something like this will be possible.

I am correct in thinking that POST and GET data are sent as plain text?
And, that being plain text, they should probably be highly compactable
by zip utils?

The reason I'm thinking this route is that I have a couple of forms for
some client websites that are particularly large, some of the POST data
sent are more than 2 MB, but obviously it can vary depending on the
amount of data entered by the user ( I cannot limit this, as these forms
are assessment forms, and they need to contain all relevant info,
regardless of size ).
All fields are text fields.

So, what happens now is that for some users on slow connections, these
forms can either take years or they simply time out every time.

Being a specific application with controlled number of users, I wouldn't
think it bad practise to force the user to install a "zip" package on
his pc; that's to say if it would be possible to write some client side
script (JS?) that will receive the form data, zip it, then send the
zipped packet via POST or GET as per usual to the server, where, upon
receipt, the POST package is "unzipped" and the handled as per usual.

Would something like this be possible or feasible at all? Are there
other better ways to accomplish this?

Thanks

Hi
Yes, I thought your last comment would also be "doable", but it would be
nice to have this zipping done on the user' behalf. The whole reason why
I *think* this is possible, is because you can unzip and process the
data on the server side in an automatic way, so it *should* be possible
to do this on client side as well, I just don't know how...
Something like a "zip-wrapper" for form data, or any data for that
matter...

Hope someone else can shed some ideas???

Hi all,

I am setting up a new production server. Assuming that I do not need
register globals, what does everyone suggest for setting it up:

Linux machine
Apache 
PHP 4.2.3

My real question is whether I should install with Apache 1.3.27 or
Apache 2.0.43 This implies 3 questions:
1. Does PHP 4.2.3 work properly with Apache 2.0.43? In a production
server?
2. Are there features in Apache 2.0 that would be beneficial?
3. What is the learning curve line from moving to installing,
configuring and running Apache 1.3 to 2.0?

Thanks

Production Server -> Apache 1.3.x

Apache2 is not even to be considered.

Apache2 and PHP are not "bedfellows" yet.

Whats the difference between require_once and include_once?

I been running into a problem, perhaps someone can help.

I require_once in a Pear database extension. Inside that pear database
extension
is a require_once("pear.php") and a require_once("db.php")

This file, Thomas Voxs' DbPage.php file, gets require_once inside yet
another
file (my file).

The problem is, my file brings in many require_once file's, some of which
require_once(db.php) inside of it. All I get redefinition problems all over
the place.

It appears to me that require_once doesn't work as advertised? For if it
did,
there should never be redefinition problems.

Why didn't all PHP code do like we do in C/C++ with
#define BLAH
if !defined(BLAH)
{
   your code here.
}

I realize the #define trick works as I used it in my own PHP code... but
when
the basic PHP core files don't have this in them, it sort of  makes
require_once
and include_once hacks! (that don't work)

Any ideas suggestions?

The problem is that under Windows, case sensitivity is important on
require_once

require_once("DB.php")
is different than
require_once("db.php");

Arggggggggh! I hate you Windows.

Well, the way I've read it is that if you use require within control
structures then all files are included, regardless of whether the script
exits before it reaches its next if...elseif...else or case statement. With
include that does not happen. So the general rule of thumb would be to use
require() if you are not using it within these control structures, and use
include() if you actually do need to use include statements in your control
structures. Now, that said, I'm really not sure if that is true for the
require_once and include_once functions also. You might want to look into
that. Hope this helps a little.

That's how it *used* to work (somewhere back around 4.0.3, if memory
serves).  Now, the only difference is that the require versions will produce
a fatal error if the file is not present, whereas the include versions will
only generate a warning.

Cheers!

This is the query I am running on my database:
 
$query = "select orderid from receipts order by receipt_id DESC LIMIT
0,1";
 $orderid = mysql_query($query);
 
That should return the last record in the DB? Correct?
 
I currently get a number returned which is the number plus 1.
IE if 423 is the last DB record then 424 is returned.
 
Any ideas why this happens?
 
Also in the same table I have a shipping price variable.
My query for this is:
$query = "select shipping from receipts order by receipt_id DESC LIMIT
0,1";
 $shipping_cost = mysql_query($query);
 
Again this should return the last record?
It doesn't return anything however. Any ideas?

No, it should not return what you want.
When you do 
$orderid = mysql_query($query);
all this does is actually execute the query, and returns an array
containing the actual result set.

What you need to do from here is to do:

$myrow = mysql_fetch_assoc($orderid);
Now, what you have is an associative array in $myrow containing the row
with identifiers being the collumn names in the db, 

So, from your query, you should do:

$my_id = $myrow["orderid"];

$my_id will now contain the id you want...

Well, OK
I think your problem is here:
You sql *could* and probably does return more than one row.
Yet, your code as it is now will only return the first row.

You need to cycle through the result rows with a while statement, like
this:

while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
        $my_id = $myrow["shipping"];
        echo $my_id;
        echo <br>;
}

Now, this will probably be a bit difficult to incorporate "as is" into
your function, as you will have multiple "returns", and each will
override the previous value, so you'll end up with only the last row's
id..

Some pointers:

Use something like $result = mysql_query($sql) instead of saying
$shipping = mysql_query()

It will work the same, but it is easier to read throuhgh your code and
see where you actually invoke a result, and where you are simply
assigning a value to a variable ( which you are NOT doing with this
command, $result only contains the result set identifier of the query,
not the actual result, that's why you pass the $result to a
mysql_fetch_assoc(), only then do you have any kind of "workable" data)

Next, use mysql_fetch_assoc(), instead of ...fetch_array()

Difference is:

array => [0,pointer1,value1,1,pointer2,value2,2,pointer3,value3.....]
associative array => [pointer1,value1,pointer2,value2,pointer3,value3
....]

So, they hold the same data, but assoc's are "smaller" as they don't
have the numerical pointer, which you don't use anyway.
When you do the 
$my_id = $myrow["shipping"];
what you are doing is retrieving the "shipping-th" value from the array,
and you would never do a 
$my_id = $myrow[2]; for instance...

So, assoc's are generally better to use. You can safely change it in
your code, the previous errors you got was not because of this, it was
simply because your result set was empty, and mysql_fetch_array OR
mysql_fetch_assoc would have given the error...

I would suggest you try to accomplish your goal without a function at
this point as to allow you to understand what you are trying to do
better. 
You will have to either build a loop into your function, or call your
function from within a loop, and both can be quite difficult to grasp
initially...

Probably something is already using 127.0.0.1:80. 
As root, run 'netstat -lp' to find out what process it is.

How hard did you look? Going to www.apache.org or httpd.apache.org will

Hi,

I need some help with a regexp for preg_split. I want the string

  str = "this is 'a string that' contains phrases";

to be split into:

  arr[] = "this";
  arr[] = "is";
  arr[] = "a string that";
  arr[] = "contains";
  arr[] = "phrases";

but I'm having some trouble coming up a good regexp that would do the job.
Any regexp gurus out there who can point me in the right direction?



Thanks,

Yes, it's possible. Look into cron to run your script on a schedule.

Sorry to keep on at you guys but this is really getting to me now!

I want to pull a shipping quantity (the very last record in the Db) into
a page and am still having problems. Tried looping through the records
and I can't seem to get it to return anything:

function get_shipping($shippingvar)
{
$conn = db_connect();
$query = mysql_query("SELECT MAX(receipt_id) from receipts");
$myrow = mysql_fetch_row($query);
$shippingvar = $myrow["shipping"];
return $shippingvar;

}

Surely it can't be much more complicated than that? 
Help please. Smoked 10 fags already!

Check http://php.net/mysql_fetch_row ... specifically, mysql_fetch_row specifically is not mysql_fetch_array and the latter is probably what you want. You may also want some error checking in that function if you don't already have any.

I would like to install eXtremePHP - Installation document says :

1. Uncompress the contents of the archive to the document root of your
web server.

2. You will have to auto prepend the xpl/common/common.inc.php file. This
can be done of one of two ways.

a) In the PHP.INI, find the field that says "auto_prepend_file" and change
it to look like below on Unix

auto_prepend_file = "/www/xpl/common/common.inc.php"

where "www" is the document root of the webserver.


b) If you are running Apache, create an .htaccess file under your
document root directory and enter the following line and save the file.

php_value auto_prepend_file /www/xpl/common/common.inc.php



My document root is : /Users/pierreva/Sites

then type

That should be all that you have to do. Now try using the libraries and other xpl stuff.

Then you will have to add the appropriate configuration options to it. You can find an example php.ini file in the
php source code file php4.2.3.tar.gz or whatever it is called. There will be a file called php.ini-recommended, you can
copy the options in this file and use it, or the php.ini-dist file.
I would like to install eXtremePHP - Installation document says :

1. Uncompress the contents of the archive to the document root of your
web server.

2. You will have to auto prepend the xpl/common/common.inc.php file. This
can be done of one of two ways.

a) In the PHP.INI, find the field that says "auto_prepend_file" and change
it to look like below on Unix

auto_prepend_file = "/www/xpl/common/common.inc.php"

where "www" is the document root of the webserver.


b) If you are running Apache, create an .htaccess file under your
document root directory and enter the following line and save the file.

php_value auto_prepend_file /www/xpl/common/common.inc.php



My document root is : /Users/pierreva/Sites
Could you tell me what I have to change in php.ini-recommmended ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

When the user logs in , i create a session with session varialbles, the
session cookie is saved on clients computer.

When i log off i say

session_unset();
session_destroy();
setcookie(session_name());

The session in the tmp is deleted , but the cookie is still there , i know
this because when i login , the same session id is used ! Why is that ?

Thanks
    Shaun

hi.. a newbie here

a user fill up a form with username and password
passing the form through 'POST'
a session was created,
a user login,
a user logout + session destroy,

but after that if the user press back button
on the browser seems like the browser
will repost the username and password back
through the form so the user need not to reenter
his/hers username/password

how to avoid this problem?
thx

Hi,

I have been trying for most of the day to pull a variable from a db.
Finally managed that. Now I need to pass the result of a function to
another function.
How do you do this?
I assume the following if called in another page can be used?

function get_shipping($shipping)
{
$conn = db_connect();
$query = "SELECT * FROM receipts ORDER BY receipt_id DESC LIMIT 1";
$result = mysql_query($query);
//$shippingvar = $myrow["shipping"];
if(mysql_numrows($result)>0)
    $shipping = mysql_result($result, 0, "shipping");
return $shipping;
}

If I return $shipping how can I display that?

I have called it in another page by doing
get_shipping($shipping)

And then 

Echo "test $shipping";

But that doesn't work.

Ideas where I'm going wrong this time?

$returned_variable = get_shipping($shipping);
echo $returned_variable;

Or you can use the returned value directly:

echo get_shipping($shipping);

Sorry for the OT post, quick mysql question...

How do you create a user/host configuration that will allow you to connect to mysql

Hi all,

I upgraded php and apache on my development machine (Windows XP). I am
now running apache 1.3.27 and php 4.2.3.

When I run a phpinfo(), I get my full list of stuff as expected, except
that the apache version reported is 1.3.24.

Has anyone else seen this. Have I done something wrong? 

Thanks

Hi,

I have a form with a checkbox like so:
<input type="checkbox" value="ON" name="shipper_save">

When I submit, the value is always shown as "ON" regardless of whether I've
checked the checkbox or not.  So this begets the question, How can I code my
PHP form processing script to determine whether the checkbox was checked?

Thanks,
Don


--- End Message ---
--- Begin Message ---
if ( isset ( $_POST['shipper_save'] ) ) {
	echo ( "It's Checked" );
}

Or use $_GET['shipper_save'] depending on your forum method.

The syntax as I have used it is (not the cleanest or best way to do
it by a long run - but it works):

<?php
if ($_POST['shipper_save'] == "off") {
  $shipper_save = "";
}
else {
  $shipper_save = "checked";
}
?>
<input type="checkbox" name="shipper_save" <?=$shipper_save?>>

this will have the checkbox be checked by default, also you can do what
ever other things you need to do based on the on/off conditions.

There's no php.sql, so I'll put it here.

I'm trying to do a search from mysql database like this:

if (!$inquiry = mysql_query("select id,link,heading,desc from links where
heading like '%$entry%' or desc like '%$entry%'
or keyword like '%$entry%'",$connection)){
    print "<LI>Search was unsuccesful!";
}
else{
    while ($link = mysql_fetch_row($inquiry)){
        print "<LI><A HREF=\"" . $link[1];
        print "\">" . $link[2];
        print "</A> <I>" . $link[3] . "</I>" ;
    }

}

But everytime I get all the possible entries, even though I'm sure it
doesn't match.

Thanks for your answers.

Echo your query and ensure that $entry has data in it, otherwise
matching '%%' will match everything as you are getting.

Cheers,
Rob.

Okay, that's enough. I'm incredibly disappointed in this list. It's very
helpful at times, but at other times can degenerate into immature
namecalling and fingerpointing like the above and other examples. So this
poster made a mistake. Cut him or her some slack. But I guess since none of
the fingerpointers here have ever made a mistake, then I guess you all have
the right to go ahead and make fun. This person made a post that he or she
shouldn't have made, and since then has been ridiculed on a public forum by
about four or five of us. If we all can look past this mistake and get back
to posting constructive comments, this poster can get back to feeling a
little sense of community here when needing legitimate help. So can we give
this poster a break, or should we continue and then respond to every
fingerpointer with the same lack of respect next time a mistake is made?
