  1. Whats the best way to automate a mySQL DB BACKUP? I tried using a crontab with this >mysqldump -udbusername -pdbpassword dbname > mybackup.sql but when i try to restore via phpmyadmin I get this error >MySQL said: You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '--------------------------------------------------------- -- I'm almost sure whats causing the error. Its some of the lines that start in -------, instead they need to have ###. Is there a way I can have the mysqldump use #'s instead of -'s.
  2. hm, I'm not sure I understand your question. If you want to make your computer into an ftp server. U can try bulletproofFTP or ServUFTP. Those seem to be the most the popular. If you want to use your site and make that into an ftp server where friends use it as a file server, That violates the AUP, so don't even try.
  3. Still new at cron jobs / unix command line so go easy. Whats the most efficient way to run a php file through the crontab. The php file i plan to execute resets a certain counter in my database, i want to have this done weekly. I've come up with >00**0 lynx -dump http://www.torrentlinks.com/reset.php However, I'm not sure if there is an easier way than using the lynx browser...is there? If someone could give me a nice site on sample crontabs that would help a bunch... Thanks, Dave
  4. Um, just wanted to make sure,can I have 2 silver plans and host 2 diff sites? Looks like my 2 personal sites have grown too much and are going to ask for more than 10GB per month. BTW, When did u guys run out of servers? I just found out. Congrats on the great business you're doing, I'm happy for you.
  5. WEll that makes sense. Its a good u pointed that out then. Hopefully they can get that fixed up.
  6. lol... true... but a few pixels...bah, i wouldn't worry about it.
  7. Try an ftp client like smartftp.com my favorite... www.smartftp.com 1. right click on file/folder >properties (should be obvious from there).
  8. You've come to right place.... TCH Rocks I still don't know how they do it...
  9. Looks like they are going to be interesting... T3, X2, and the hulk also...
  10. I don't know how u guys do it....hehehe Keep up the excellent work, bill and staff... New webiste design and additions are just superb.
  11. Alright, thats what i thought... Thanks for the reply... dave
  12. I'm assuming this is what http://afraid.org uses. Is there anyway way for me to get similar results...
  13. not redirecting it using the .htaccess file..I mean redirecting using a 3rd party free domain pointing... I don't see how this answered my question anyhow...haha
  14. I hope this hasn't been asked b4, i searched and came up with 0 results...So, is there an easy way of masking/cloaking a url w/o using frames or a redirector. Thanks, D
  15. Tried all ftp clients..I like smartftp the best...
  16. hey bill, The cron jobs link seems to have some problems. Or is it just me...goes to a dead link.
  17. Thanks for the reply lianna... I don't know what I was thinking..I didn't notice it was putting a folder on the public_html because i had a folder with the same name already in that directory...Thanks for the help anyway.. D
  18. Yup, since I've gotten no reply to my question. I've come to the conclusion that its not possible
  19. hm...I'm not sure what you are asking. my goal is to create this stats.subdomain.domain.com to point to domain/subdomain/stats/, and as I stated earlier, this isn't working. So my question is, am I doing something wrong or is this not possible?
  20. uh, can u make a subdomain of another subdomain. Cpanel does allow it, but i can't get it to work. Normally when i create a normal subdomain it creates a folder that corresponds to that subdomain and inside is a .htaccess file which redirects to whatever. However, in this case, there is no folder being created. I even created a folder manually and still no luck. Any suggestions?
