  1. This is the first time I'm going to be trying to do a cron job backup of my blog's DB. In fact, it'll be the first time I've used a cron job to do anything! I need a bit of clarification as to what the instruction is actually saying... Also, the portion of the command line that says >-ppassworrd Is that correct? Are there supposed to be two letter Rs in there? Finally, there's a line in the Cron Job manager that says I hate to sound stupid about this, but this is not where the backup will be saved, is it? From the way I'm reading it, the cron daemon will perform the backup and send the resultant gzipped backup file to whatever email address I specify. Am I understanding it correctly? If so, how do I make sure the backup stays in my web space, as well as being emailed to me? Sorry for all the newbie questions. I know they can get frustrating at times, especially if you're really experienced at this stuff!
  2. Happy Memorial Day to everyone! And a big heartfelt "thanks" to all of you who are currently serving or have served in our armed forces. I want to thank you for helping this country maintain the freedom we currently enjoy. Now, on to my question... It seems to me like someone, at some point in the not so distant past, posted something about installed PHP extensions. I'm trying to set up a Blogrolling cache to my blog site so that if the BlogRolling.com site starts wigging out, it won't cause my site to slow down unnecessarily. In doing so, I've found a PHP script that will work in situations where the BlogRolling site is down for a short time, but it requires that the PHP Pear extension called Cache Lite be installed. How do I find out which PHP extensions are installed? For Perl modules, I know you can dive right into your cPanel and choose the navigation item "Installed Perl Modules: Click to View" I don't see anything comparable to that for PHP. Is there a master list somewhere of PHP extensions that are installed? Also, does anyone know off the top of their head if the PHP Pear Cache Lite extension is installed? Thanks!
  3. Wow, you added me to your favorites? *blushing big time* I can only say "thanks." Kinda lame to not have something more profound, but I'm too excited/happy to think of anything better!
  4. Thanks to everyone who's stopped by for a visit and left some comments...they really lifted my spirits! And also, thanks to everyone for the very kind compliments about my site. *blushing* I guess you could call it a labor of love. I had no idea how challenging MT would be. I thought it was one of those plug-n-play sort of software apps. I had no idea how many different bits can be toggled here, there, everywhere. Some things give me big headaches, but once I learn how to straighten them out, I start having a grand ole time once again! Thank you all for visiting!
  5. Isn't that odd? Maybe it's some sort of canine/feline psychic link. I've been to your site before, but I don't know a lick (ha...get it?) of Italian, I've never done anything but admire the artwork. Either way, I guess your BlackCat likes my PudgyPuppy! Hee hee
  6. I'm in the same boat as Don on this one. The site comes up just fine for me. Here's a screenshot...
  7. You are so right, Lisa! You were the very first commenter ever. #1, the leader of the pack, the trendsetter, etc. etc. I guess I should have phrased it better ... more along the lines of "my first **unsolicited** comment". Ha! You got me on that one! Thanks for the compliments, too!
  8. Hey everybody! I just had to exclaim how excited I am that I got my first official comment today to my blog! And to top it off, it wasn't even from someone in my family! I was especially impressed that the commenter noted my accessibility statement and that I had made my site accessible. Considering the amount of time I took putting the site together, I'm glad to know that the extra work I spent ahead of time is being noticed and has paid off. Anyway, I just wanted to express my excitement to people who would understand the reason and extent of my elation! Yay!!!
  9. OK, this is a bit tangential to the topic at hand, but ... What exactly is a cronjob? I'm sure its some sort of automated tasking procedure, but what'd I'd like to know is what they are typically used for. I'm sure there's stuff I do manually that could be handled via cronjob.
  10. Thanks for the screenshot, Bruce. Bill, I'm going to take you up on your offer to see a few different skins in action. I'll send you a PM since it looks like you're not online with MSN or Yahoo messenger right now.
  11. Lisa, Without divulging any sensitive information about your site's backend, can you take a screenshot of Monsoon so I can see what it looks like? I tried doing a web search, but none of the links I found had a graphic to see what the skin looks like. Thanks! Kasey BTW -- I like the new look of your site. The faerie at the top is very, very nice.
  12. I was transferring files on a client's site this weekend and discovered that my cPanel screen looks very different from his. I'm attaching two different screen shots -- one of my cPanel and one of his. Why the difference? (He's on server 70 and I'm on 26.)
  13. I'm sorry I don't have time to look at this for you. Things are very busy at work today. But if the problem is still up in the air when I get home, I'll do my best to look into it for you. I'm sure it will be something so simple that we'll all say "Duh".
  14. Rob, you were so right. The XHTML wouldn't validate because of some problems with a couple of comments I had left in the code and a symbol that the XML parser didn't understand (an ellipsis "..." had gotten transformed into a compressed, single-character-encoded ellipsis "…" by some automated feature in one of my coding prorams. Don't ask me how! I've never seen that happen before.) Also, I learned for the first time that the XML parser won't let you use the "--" combination in a comment. So this is OK... ><!-- Here's a good comment. --> But this is not... ><!-- Here's another comment ------ but this one is not cool. --> Ah, the joys of creating clean, valide code! Sometimes ya just gotta learn to read what the validator is telling you. Thanks for catching that one!
  15. To add to the craziness, here's another bit of info for you... The previous error was generated by trying to validate the CSS on the URI http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/. If I go back to the W3C CSS Validator, http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/, and enter just the URI for the style sheet, http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/styles-site.css, then it validates perfectly! What gives?!?
  16. Can someone please tell me what in the world this error message means? (see the attached .jpg image) When I validated my MT blog's CSS earlier this morning, it was fine. Now I get this strange message from W3C. It makes me want to scream! Mad!!! I can provide CSS source and HTML source if you need it to understand what's going on... Frustrated, Kasey
  17. Thank you, Bruce. As usual, you have just the right answer to my question! Rock Sign
  18. Yay, Thomas! I was finally successful in submitting my web site to the TCH Customers Webring. What a very cool idea!
  19. It tells you that to join, you should enter the TCH Customers Webring area. Here's how you phrased it...
  20. In an earlier post, Head Guru Bill talked about putting graphics in your signature line that indicate whether your are online or offline in the various Instant Messenger applications you use. I've noticed many people with the little "Skype Me" buttons in their signature lines as well. Where can I go to get one of those cute little buttons?
  21. Hi Annie, We break the link because of forum policy. In a TCH forum, active links should only point to pages with the TCH domain, proper. You can ask TCH-Bruce for more info. He's the one that reminded me of the policy...
  22. Yes, Annie is correct. The links work, but not the h*tp://www.jikrantz.se/tchwebringinfo.htm link. That's the link we'd need to access in order to sign up for your web ring.
  23. Arvind, You are correct. I had a typo when I tried it... I used instead of Silly me! Sorry for the stupid question! (OK, ya'll can whip me with a wet noodle now! )
  24. Don, Thanks for the info. Here's what the welcome mail says... When I enter the URL given (, I get a cPanel web page that says "There is no web site configured at this address." If I enter the following: I receive a 404 Not Found error message.
