  1. No, you would not be able to run Intalio|Server on a TCH Shared server. It requires a Java server which TCH doesn't provide, or require you to run your own which TCH also doesn't allow (TCH doesn't allow user programs to remain resident in memory, nor open ports on the server for listening).


    It would require a dedicated at TCH to run it here. It's a rather involved process for running on a shared host anyway.

  2. Haven't forgotten you. I just need to fully test out the concept before sharing it as I wouldn't want you accidently deleting files you want to keep. :)


    Just been swamped with work and my daughter's 6th birthday this weekend. I'll get to it shortly.

  3. The short answer is yes.


    The longer answer is it would take some thought to make sure you aren't deleting files you shouldn't be, but it can be done.


    Do you want to only delete emails in the INBOX? Or do you want to remove emails from other IMAP folders as well?


    Do you want to remove emails that are unread as well? Or only those that have been read?

  4. Remember, my original plan was to use Apple's Mail App and Gmail.


    Ahh... now it makes sense. Yea, I use Google Apps for one of my personal domains (primarily just to help others troubleshoot problems with it). Google has pretty aggressive connection limits that can cause occasional authentication failures (this is the main problem I run into on occasion). Other than that, it's been pretty reasonable. You should have less problems with those kind of things IMAP'ing to your TCH account.


    And I am using Thunderbird on my Mac. So far it's still my favorite, and I like the ability to run add-ons. Currently I'm using Lightning (calendar that supports Outlook meeting requests), LookOut (tnef decoding... more outlook support), and Mail Redirect (redirect emails in whole... useful if you want to redirect an email and retain the original from, instead of forwarding it).

  5. My main question is in regards to folders and organizing my email. I currently have a LOT of folders (and sub-folders) set up in Mail App. So much so that I started to get lazy and throw things into a "file later" folder (one of the reasons I wanted to try out Gmail). Anyway, I'm not clear on if I will be able to have my Mail App folder structure mirrored on the TCH IMAP server.


    As long as those folders are created under your TCH account in either mail app, they will exist on the TCH server, so you should be fine. I've used both successfully for some time (although now I'm primarily a Thunderbird man).

  6. As we have a lot of phpBB users here, I want to mention that due to the phplist 0-day exploit, phpbb.com was compromised and the password hashes for all accounts were posted publically (which means that people could figure out the passwords given enough time).


    If you have accounts on there as well as anywhere else that you may have used the same password, you should change them. See phpBB.com's announcement for more details.

  7. I'd prefer the Blackberry Bold, but since I'm on Verizon and hate AT&T, I'll probably end up with the Storm and hope the software improves soon (and it should).


    A Bold on Verizon would be my dream. (Verizon should be getting the Curve 8900 mid-year, but that's not quite the bold).


    Currently, still using my 8703e.

  8. I have never used dbMail but having briefly reviewed their site, you won't be able to use dbMail on a virtual (shared) account, because it requires modifying the Mail Transfer Agent which you cannot do since everyone else on the server uses it as well.


    Are you trying to install this on a hosting account, or a dedicated server?

  9. Is it worth while moving them all onto the same server? Will all my sites be migrated for me? Will I experience any downtime? Will I still have 3 separate CPanel logins to manage each site individually? On domain 1 I have moved my MX Records to point to Google, will these sorts of settings also be migrated? Are the server settings the same on resellers as shared hosting? With my sites all being PHP based I am well aware that server settings can differ and cause functionality changes (I recently experienced this with a development version of a site performing differently to a live version on a different server). I take it all I will need to do is change my DNS settings with my domain registrar to point to the new nameservers? Will my payment settings be transferred from being 3 separate payments to being one lump sum every month? How easy is it to add a new domain onto a reseller account, so if I do create my 4th site with yourselves, how easy is it to add this to my account? Will I incur any cost for moving from shared -> reseller?


    The value of having them on the same server under a single reseller account is objective, but I'd say it's worth it.


    They staff should migrate the sites for you if you'd like them to and I believe they do that at no cost. They'll carry over all over your current settings into your reseller account. Each account will have a separate cPanel account just like they do now, but you'll also get a single Web Host Manager account to create, modify, and delete your cPanel accounts. Adding a new account at that point is simple and does not require contacting TCH to do.


    The server settings will be the same. You would have to change the DNS servers at your registrar, I believe.


    As far as billing, yes, your 3 separate payments would be terminated and you'd only be billed for the reseller account.



    Sorry for all the questions, it feels like it could be quite a big step and I just want to make sure I know all before taking the plunge.


    No problem. Hope my answers help! :helpsmilie:

  10. I'm assuming you are talking about connecting to your MySQL database in a shared web account at TCH. If that's teh case your domain name would work fine for the server variable.


    If you find it doesn't connect, however, you will want to enter a help desk ticket. I don't believe TCH has mysql open to outside connections by default.

  11. Oh and just to add that apparently Mozilla has a new Javascript engine that they are introducing in Firefox 3.1 and some claim it may be better than V8 but we shall see.


    Firefox is reporting that TraceMonkey is indeed faster (whether it is or not, it definitely is comparable on my system).

  12. No Google paid a company to make the new engine for them. To my knowledge the main engine parts of Chrome (the renderer an Javascript engine) are both made by third parties.


    Well, largely the same thing. A new javascript engine was created for the google browser.


    And yes, the rendering engine is webkit, developed by Apple.

  13. I took Chrome for a test ride and was very impressed with the speed!!!


    Google wrote their own Javascript Engine (poorly named V8) which is up to 10 times faster than other versions. With the heavy usage of Javascript, AJAX, etc... on websites, this will give a decent improvement in performance on most sites. However, being open-source, you may see some of this filter over to Firefox which Google still has an invested interest in at least through 2011.


    Whether Google's browser gains any significant market share or not, hopefully it'll help push others to optimize and become better featured and standard compliant.
