  1. I was doing really well with keeping spam in check and suddenly about 2 days ago I started getting floods of 50 at a time (several times a day), most with Netsky. I havent used the email from my site for much of anything so it can't be that I gave it to someone who harvested it. I have only two specific names I was getting mail for and I have spam assain set. On my machine I also run virus software but Netsky is a slippery one. It got so bad I had to fully shut down my incoming email. I'm wondering if you guys changed anything in the past week or so? Much of the email was also addressed to my server name rather than my site name. Any insight is appreciated -Jill
  2. Thanks Lisa. btw, nice to see a female on staff there! (not that I mind the guys , they're great too!) -Jill
  3. How can you detect this activity? Also, do you have a link that shows the method you used to combat it? Thanks
  4. How do I know what server my sites are on? The are both down
  5. I beta tested TSO & There but didnt stay around for either to go live. I played EQ & FFXI. The "game" I keep going back to, and have a lifetime membership at is SecondLife. There is no story, quests or themes. You make whatever you want. It has attracted many programmers & artists because of the building & scripting capabilities. No "needs" so many burnt out TSOers go there to socialize where you dont have to eat & pee. Like shoot em ups? Go to one of the outlands sims, build guns & blast away. There's a free trial, just kill your account before the 7 days if you dont want to stay or you will be billed.
  6. Yes, mine is at 5. I guess I will check the other suggestion. Thanks.
  7. Bruce, good question. How do I change the level? Mike, I do that but usually using a netscape, hotmail, yahoo or orhter disposable address.
  8. I set up Spam Assassin about a month ago and WOW! My spam was immediately down by 3/4 or more. Now, a month later, I am suddenly getting my pre Spam Assassin amounts. I can't figure out why. All my settings are fine and I don't give out that email address. Its not on my website for bots to find and I never ever post it on forums. Any clue to what my problem is? I so hate spam and I end up occasionally deleting valid emails by mistake when deleting them all.
  9. I know TCH supports PHP. Can someone answer the question if there is PHP GD support? To be more specific, I'm thinking of using Coppermine Photo Gallery.
  10. I have a variety of input devices to suit my mood. Oh, and an alter ego on the right monitor. This is the desk where I work. Since you can have a work and a home entry and I work in my home I'm not sure this second one is a valid entry or not. If it isnt, disregard it. If it is, here ya go (Start 'em young I say!), my 3.5 yo's PII:
  11. Thx for the reply. I ended up deleting phpbb folder. My problems are all based on the fact that I wanted the forums on a sub domain and the simple installation was too simple for my needs . I went to the phpbb website and downloaded what I needed then ftp'd it where I wanted it. I then followed their not so intuitive instructions and viola! It works. I'm just here posting the solution so if anyone else comes searching this issue, its here. -Jill
  12. thanks. "tia" was for thanks in advance . I did try to open a ticket but was told they had no issues even though I still do. When I was specific about the problems (yes it looks like its looking for some of the files like index.php under the main) they told me they dont support 3rd party software. I added it via the control panel and the only option was to put it under the main. I guess I'll try to figure out whats up from the PHP website. I was hoping someone here already went through this so I woudnt have to reinvent the wheel. Oh well. thx Jill
  13. I couldnt seem to figure out how to add a bulletin board to my subdomain so I added it to my domain then dragged the forums folder over. It comes up like it should but I think I hurt myself patting myself on the back because now when I try now to log into the newly created forums I get an error: "Not Found The requested URL /forums/index.php was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. " If I look in the forums folder this file is indeed there. I'm doing something wrong. Help would be appreciated. tia Thumbs Up
  14. Thanks, I use Netscape and the problem persisted even after clearing history, cookies and everything else I mentioned above. I was about to fire up another computer here but decided to give IE a try. That did it. Netscape was apparently saving something somewhere that I didnt ask it to, and wouldnt let it go I think everything is good now and I have to say that even with the (minor) bumpy start, the staff at TCH has been very responsive. I appreciate that.
  15. Ok I'm brand new and trying to set up two accounts. I went into my cp for one (using the " before domain name propagation" link) and got it all set up. Problem is, when I go to set up the second one I keep getting the first one . I logged out, cleared my cache, deleted the cookie and tried the link again and I popped right up already logged into the first one again. How can I access the cp on the second account? Do I have to wait for everything propagate first?
  16. Ok someone fixed something somewhere. It works now Yippee!
  17. Bill, It isnt fine. I know and used the information for the seperate account. Theres no public directory and I dont see your file (although I do see what you posted if I look up my URL). Also, you seemed quite upset in the ticket that I didnt provide my password. No where did I see that I had to provide my password for service.
  18. Rick, I tried to IM you and I did PM you. I appreciate your empathy and support. Hardly what I got from another tech who was able to ftp to my site and insists there's no problem. Heres the thing though. I still cannot FTP nor can I see the file he uploaded (There is NO public directory). I'd like to restate I do have two accounts with you and I did the exact same thing with this one as I did with the other with no problems. I triple checked my entries to what was provided to me and I get the error I stated in my ticket. BTW the second ticket that you left open was closed as "resolved" by the other tech. It isnt. thanks.
