  1. You could give them all FTP accounts, that would probably be the best way to transfer large files. And since you will have web pages for the bands, it probably wouldn't be much more work to also create an FTP account when you setup their webpages (or automate that).
  2. VI (stands for "VIsual editor" so you can get an idea of how old it is) is a Unix editor. It's pretty cryptic (but powerful if you know how to use it). It is found on virtually all installations of Unix, Linux, etc... It's not an HTML editor, it's just a text editor, kinda like using Notepad on a windows machine to code HTML. However, recent decendants of VI (like VIM, VI iMproved) have added a lot to the original editor including color coding so it's easy to spot missing tags, open quotes, etc... I wouldn't recommend VI to anyone who doesn't do a lot of work in a Unix environment though. The learning curve is rather steep.
  3. Hmm.... my html editor of choice is still VI. One of these days I should try something new.
  4. Possibly. I joined right before they switched to a new invoicing system I believe.
  5. Just keep in mind that part of the reason Movable Type rebuilds the affected pages when you post an entry and not on the fly is so that what is being served is static. Typically there is a lot more reading than posting happening on a blog, so this reduces the load on a server (and can speed up page delivery). Just something to keep in mine when looking at "on the fly" blogs, especially when using shared servers. I haven't looked at wordpress personally.
  6. Mine wasn't. I had to request access through Rob.
  7. Send a PM to TCH-Rob to gain access. Include the domain name of your reseller account so he can verify you qualify.
  8. Just edit the entry through the admin interface and remove the text that looks something like this in the beginning of the entry text: ><a href="public/img-1076104670.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="public/img-1076104670.jpg" align="left" border="0" width="75" height="75"></a> That should remove the image from your guestbook.
  9. That one definitely made me laugh out loud. Thumbs Up
  10. I know it doesn't really help much, but the "main PHP" for the guestbook is all those templates it lists under the templates menu. It uses those to build the pages you see, so you would likely have to modify several of those to get the look you want, if you wanted to do it within guestbook, instead of framing it.
  11. There are some decent ones at Dynamic Drive that you might want to check out.
  12. You are likely using the shared SSL certificate of that server. The way SSL certificates work, is that it gets delivered to your browser, your browser then checks the certificate and the sitename used to access that server (in your example, "plain.rackshack.net", and checks them against the certificate authority that issued the certificate. If they don't match, you will get an error like that. In the case of your setup, though, the certificate is a probably a dummy one that wasn't issued by a Certificate Authority so that the server can provide SSL to any number of domains, just without the verification. In plain English... the SSL certificate that is running on that server is not for plain.rackshack.net, so it cannot verify that the site you requested is what you actually got. If you say yes to allowing it, the connection is still secure (and encrypted) though. The reason for verification is to protect against someone stealing information by redirecting people to another site that claims to be the original, but without the proper ID (which would prompt that error). As long as you are sure you are connected to the correct server, you can select "forever". You should get another prompt in the event that certificate ever reports differently. The reason there isn't a certificate for your domain is they cost money and they require additional resource, since every SSL certificate has to run on it's own IP address. To put an analogy to it, imagine a person has the name of John Doe, and they have a drivers license with the name John Doe on it. Your server is John Doe. You can think of the websites on a server as "nicknames" for John Doe. Say he goes by "Bud" or "JD". Although you can reference John Doe by his nicknames, you can only verify who he really is if you know is real name, and check it against his ID. He would have to have additional ID's for his nicknames (assuming that was legal) if he wanted to be identified officially by them. Then depending what you called him, he would give you the appropriate ID. Hopefully somewhere up there I made sense.
  13. Yea... what bruce said. As far as I know that image is freely distributable (but I'm working on confirming that by trying to find it's original source).
  14. Not sure on the site updates. Make sure that you are putting the new files in /public_html. Also try doing a shift-click (hold shift down on keyboard and click) on your browser refresh button to make sure your browser isn't loading a cached page. You can also use File Manager from cpanel to look at the files in your account.
  15. It's all about the magic banana.
  16. If you want an alternate way to try to check your webmail, though, look at this thread about going directly to webmail.
  17. You can try to go to your webmail directly instead of through cpanel: http ://mysite.com/webmail or http ://mysite.com:2095/ Replace "mysite.com" with your account domain (and remove space after http). If you are trying to check mail of the account your domain is under, login the same as you would for cpanel. If it's for an email account you created within cpanel, using the following format: Name: user+mysite.com Password: (whatever you entered when you created it) Hope that helps.
  18. Understandable. I had attempted to reproduce your problem though, on my account, and couldn't. So it would pretty much require seeing what how your cpanel is linking to it to really troubleshoot it.
  19. It would appear when working (or possibly just loading?) an htaccess file, it can trigger NIS to think there's an attack. All I could find was I've got an attack called Raq_Apache_dot_htaccess which mentions the same scenario. Since the vulnerability Raq_apache_dot_htaccess is specific to antiquated cobalt servers, you shouldn't have any concerns. Were you working on your htaccess files per chance, today? [edited by D. Scott Demmin: changed the link text to be more descriptive ]
  20. If you haven't found the problem, you might want to open up a support ticket so TCH can look in your cpanel directly.
  21. Don't fall to Mr. Anonymous' level. I think TCH's service speaks for itself. Rock Sign
  22. This should do it for you (scroll down to the last post). Thumbs Up Copied here for your convience. Note, you will find gb.class.php in the "lib" directory of your guestbook, and header.php in the "templates" directory (but header.php is also editable through the guestbook admin interface). Also the example below just adds a link to your home page. Change that, and add additional links as needed in the same location in the menu_array list. 1.) Open gb.class.php and edit around line 73 >function generate_JumpMenu() { $menu_array[] = "<select name=\"entry\" onchange=\"urlJump('self',this)\" class=\"select\">"; $menu_array[] = "<option value=\"http://www.****/\" class=\"select\">Back To Home</option>"; $menu_array[] = "<option value=\"0\" selected>".$this->db->LANG["FormSelect"]."</option>"; if ($this->db->VARS["entries_per_page"] < $this->total) { $remain = $this->total % $this->db->VARS["entries_per_page"]; $i = $this->total-$remain; while ($i > 0) { $num_max = $i; $num_min = $num_max-$this->db->VARS["entries_per_page"]; $num_min++; $menu_array[] = "<option value=\"$remain\">$num_min-$num_max</option>"; $i = $num_min-1; $remain += $this->db->VARS["entries_per_page"]; } } $menu_array[] = "</select>"; $menu_array[] = "<input type=\"submit\" value=\"".$this->db->LANG["FormButton"]."\" class=\"input\">"; return $menu_array; } Replace *****/ with your homepage URL 2.) Now add a javascript function to the guestbook header. Search for the file header.php and add this: ><script language="javascript"> <!-- function urlJump(target,selObj) { var optionValue = selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value; var isURL = /http:/; var regMatch = isURL.test(optionValue); if(regMatch == true) { eval(target+".location='"+selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value+"'"); } } // --> </script> </head> <body bgcolor="$VARS[pbgcolor]" link="$VARS[link_color]" vlink="$VARS[link_color]">
  23. Congrats, Tracy! Keep up the great help! Thumbs Up
