  1. Hi all, Thanks always to TCH for the great service. U do ROCK. Sometimes getting the following error message when trying to view my site. Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (11) in /home/username/public_html/includes/functions/database.php on line 19 Unable to connect to database server! Any ideas? My side? TCH side? WWW side? Cheers, Wayne Edit: removed cPanel username
  2. Bill will ride a camel around the seashore of the US as an advertising gimmick for TCH. The camel will have TotalChoiceHosting.com tattooed on it's side. And Bill will be naked except for a big hat. Am I right?
  3. Bruce, thats the one. Thanks. Its a bit difficult to find on the front page. maybe it should be called Members' Pages or something? Thanks again for all your support. Always appreciated. Wayne

  6. Thomas, Thanks for pointing that out. Silly MISKATE. All fixed. Regards, Wayne
  7. I also read mata tags were dead but use them for the better feeling thing. How about header tags? A better way of PR? WM
  8. Beat the bugger 15-11 he he he. Some of those volleys were very fast. Suggest using spin shots. WM

An online shop providing Japanese electronics, gadgets, toys, food, clothing and more. 4. (Hopefully on the way to being) Commercial. Regards, Wayne

  12. Hi ya, Thanks to the TCH family for all the help in the past and no doubt tons more in the future. I have purchased a domain name and have set up ocSommerce and have it running in a subdomain. Will move it to root when all goes live. I see from other osCommerce sites that they are secured by SSL certs. So I had a read through the Help section and forums here and am more confused. What I want to know... -If I only accept orders through my osCommerce site and receive payments through PayPal do I need an SSL cert? -If I need an SSL cert, can I have osCommerce sitting in root? -If osCommerce is in root and someone enters through my domain name is everything secured? Is root SSL'd? -If I use a shared SSl cert from TCH can I get a logo to put on my website for customers to see and feel at ease? Trying to ask as many questions as possible so I dont have to keep coming bak and bugging the Gurus too much. Ahhhh...so many questions and total confusion. Hoping someone can understand whats swilling around my head, make sense of it and even shed some light on it all. Kind regards, WM
  13. Hi all, Im wanting to set up a live webcam at an event to be held here sometime soon. Have had a look on the www and its all quite bewildering. Im currently tinkering with Apple's Broadcast and Darwin Streaming Server. I'll be running OSX 10.3.9 with an iSight camera to a LAN connection. Does anyone have any hints, info, experience they can share with me and others needing to know? Thanx in adavance. Wayne in Japan
  14. Hi all, Sorry if Im not posting in the correct arena. I have noticed in awStats that I have been getting hits but not page views. Some of these are originating from myspace.com. I have also found some sites that are hot linking my images. Just wonder what is the best solution? I have sent email but no responses. I have some of the images in my phpwebsite Photo Album. Is it possible to just put in a stop hot link script for individual images and domains (eg mywebsite.com)? I also use my disk space for my avatar on bbs's. Wayne
  15. Don, thanx always. Yes, I see/saw the extract option. I found that by recompressing it to a tgz I could then extract it TCH side. Managed to get things 99% complete except for a strange line of code at the top of the website saying... session_start(); if (isset($_GET[hide_header]) OR ($_POST[hide_header] == "true")) { $_SESSION[hide_header] = TRUE; } if (!$_SESSION[hide_header]) { I see it in the source file but cant find where its generating from backside. I also opened a ticket with the tech crew and they were of help too. Wayne
  16. Don, thanx. Opened a ticket and the techies unzipped it for me. Thanx, Wayne
  17. Just to add my 2 cents worth. I just checked my AWstats and they hadnt automatically updated since Aug 22. Did a manual update and the stats were all there. Seems to be an auto-updating prob. Wayne
  18. Don thanx for the reply. Actually, this is the second time Im posting this reply. The first one disappeared after I logged out...hmmm. Anyways, I uploaded the .zip to root at TCH and even changed the permissions to 777 but no go on extracting it. Even today I get this message... "phpBB-2.0.17-files.zip File Type: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract Archive: phpBB-2.0.17-files.zip" Maybe I should submit a ticket? Wayne
  19. Greetings all, I got the upgrade or lose it email today. Went to cPanel but cant upgrade... "Sorry, you must specify a directory to install or upgrade!" so am doing it manually...but... When I try to extract the .zip file I get... "phpBB-2.0.17-files.zip File Type: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract Archive: phpBB-2.0.17-files.zip" Ummmmm, any ideas on what to do, before opening a ticket? Regards, Wayne
  20. Greetings again, Thanx for all the input. Greatly appreciated and helpful. I had a look at a few programs on the www and have installed Fm Click Tracker that runs thru the cgi-bin (hope that makes sense). It can be found here. If you track thru their site you can find some other cool add-ons. One point that was brought up here was indexing by search engines. With what I have done, will I be at a disadvantage with search engines now? Regards and good night, Wayne in Japan
  21. Hi ya all, I see AwStats shows clicks to my site but what about clicks out? I want to know how many clicks a link on my site is getting. Maybe there is something I cant find in CPanel or maybe someone knows a handy little script that could be installed. Any info appreciated. Regards, Wayne

  23. Hi all, thanx always for the great help I get here. I have been tweeking The Address Book that I run on my www site to run on my mobile site. TAB has a drop down menu that is used to select a Group inwhich people a listed. When a new Group is selected an sql query is run and the appropriate results are shown. When I run this on my mobile site no sql query is run as they mobile system here in Japan doesnt seem set up for this function. I'm wanting to either convert the drop down menu to a list that links to the same results OR add a GO button to force the change. Is this easily done? Here's some code from my php.... <TR> <TD> <TABLE BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH=240> <TR VALIGN="bottom"> <TD CLASS="headTitle"><?php echo("$group_name"); ?></TD> <TD CLASS="headText" ALIGN=right> <FORM NAME="selectGroup" METHOD="get" ACTION="<?php echo(FILE_LIST); ?>"> Select Area <SELECT NAME="groupid" CLASS="formSelect" onChange="document.selectGroup.submit();"> <?php // -- GENERATE GROUP SELECTION LIST -- // Only admins can view hidden entries. if ($_SESSION['usertype'] == "admin") { $groupsql = "SELECT groupid, groupname FROM " . TABLE_GROUPLIST . " AS grouplist WHERE groupid >= 0 ORDER BY groupname"; } else { $groupsql = "SELECT groupid, groupname FROM " . TABLE_GROUPLIST . " AS grouplist WHERE groupid >= 0 AND groupid != 2 ORDER BY groupname"; } $r_grouplist = mysql_query($groupsql, $db_link); while ($tbl_grouplist = mysql_fetch_array($r_grouplist)) { $selectGroupID = $tbl_grouplist['groupid']; $selectGroupName = $tbl_grouplist['groupname']; echo(" <OPTION VALUE=$selectGroupID"); if ($selectGroupID == $group_id) { echo(" SELECTED"); } echo(">$selectGroupName</OPTION>¥n"); } ?> </SELECT> ....... The Address Book can be found at http://www.corvalis.net/address/ and something Im working one can be found at http://www.fukuokaguide.com/barclubs/list.php Hope someone can help. Regards, Wayne
