  1. Thanks for the reply. I'm registered with you and host on www.lunarlog.com. My email is ****@lunarlog.com. It should (I would think) go the lunarlog.com email address on your server.
  2. I have a problem with my website, www.lunarlog.com and emails not being sent through that. I should receive an email whenever someone signs up or makes a comment, however I am not receiving anything. Regular email methods work just fine. I checked my spam folder online, and there's nothing there either. I've run out of ideas as to what is happening with this. Please help!
  3. Thanks Bruce. I posted a ticket after seeing another TCH thread on something similar and am waiting to hear back. For now, my workaround is to simply divide the file into several .rar components/parts available for download. It works, but I would still like to find out the answer to this.
  4. Now I seem to have another wall unfortunately. Files for download (again, hosted externally but through my TCH hosted site) that are above 447 mb timeout consistently even after raising the execution time well beyond 7200. So it appears that I'm hitting a 'roof' somewhere else in the server configuration/.htaccess after modifying the max execution time. At least it doesn't do it on the smaller files now. Does anyone know what's possibly causing the error for the larger +447mb files?
  5. Thanks guys for your information and knowledge. Are there any negative consequences to raising the value below past '120' in the .htaccess file? >php_value max_execution_time "120" I should add that having changed this value to '7200' seconds, that it seems to be working just fine now. Thank you. The reason I changed this to '7200' is that I figured with downloading a 2-3 GB file over a slower connection, that a large file might potentially take someone 1-2 hours to download. Perhaps I'm way off in thinking that a value of '7200' would encompass the script timeout issue. If you think this is a wise thing to have done, please advise. Otherwise I'd like to know of any potential consequences for such a large value. Another issue I've encountered is with Firefox now - as I'm downloading the file (although technically it is hosted remotely), it won't let continue browsing my website while the download is active. It's as if it takes up/locks out resources. Does anyone know what is going on here? On the other hand, if I open up a different browser such as Internet Explorer as that is downloading, I am able to surf the site again.
  6. Okay. So do I have a php.ini file somewhere? Or do I only have access to .htaccess?
  7. The download starts on both of these other sites. Te script works perfectly fine with the author's Wordpress site to pull these files fully down. But it doesn't work fully on mine (partial, then cuts out seemingly randomly.) That's why I was asking here to see if it was a php.ini or .htaccess permission problem - perhaps with some sort of memory or scripting timeout. Maybe I'm completely off base. I don't know - I'm not unfortunately a security expert. I just don't see why it would work on one website and not another. As I mentioned before - the script also works completely fine on mine if I host locally. Unfortunately, I already have the largest plan with you guys and I'm about to run out of space. That's why I'm trying to host all the files remotely.
  8. Background information: I have a website with TCH called www.hdrsource.com. It has been created using Wordpress. I have an online store using the Wordpress plugin WP eStore for Digital Downloads. I'm hosting VERY large images (50mb - 3gb) on an external website called 4shared.com How WP eStore Works: WP eStore works (using php) to encrypt the link of any digital asset you are selling - that way others cannot pass the link around. You can host your files locally, or externally - it shouldn't matter. After an allotted time, the encrypted link goes dead. The problem: When I've hosted the large image files on external websites - mediafire.com and/or 4shared.com, as someone goes to download from the encrypted link created by the WP eStore script (locally), the downloads cut out prematurely. Troubleshooting so far: 1) I've contacted both hosts - mediafire.com and 4shared.com thinking that it might be a security issue on their behalf. Both have informed me that it wasn't. 2) I've been in contact with the WP eStore author for the past few weeks and we've been working on seeing what could potentially be wrong. He informed and showed me that he was able to download one of the test files (60mb)successfully using his website with the plugin. When I try the same exact thing from mine with the same exact file (and same external source), I still gives me a timeout. 3) Direct links to the 4shared and mediafire websites obviously works. 4) When the file is hosted locally with TCH, it downloads just fine. Which leads me to believe that there is some sort of scripting timeout or memory parameter somewhere - except I don't know where to begin to look. And that's why I'm asking you guys. Is there a php.ini file somewhere? A .htaccess parameter that should be adjusted? Maybe it's neither of those??? The question: How to fix download timeouts when using a script to a 3rd party website? Currently works fine with other sites, but not with mine on TCH.
  9. Doesn't seem like a bot - it shows up as an actual 'link' in my pages.
  10. It makes no sense why someone would go to this website month after month and type in 'lunarstudio' into their search bar. What I do is completely unrelated to what they do.
  11. Hello everybody. I'm just wondering about something that keeps appearing in my AWStats: Links from an external page (other web sites except search engines): http://pacificair.com 8 8 This is for my website www.lunarstudio.com. This site is 'apparently' linking to my website somehow yet when I visit it, there's no links back to my site. So my question is, why does this site keep on appearing in my logs as having links back to mine. I looked through its code briefly and couldn't find a link back. Also, I did a google search for 'lunarstudio pacificair' and didn't come across anything. Any idea what's going on here?
  12. Hmmm. Well, wishful thinking for a 'better' protocol... There's a few things it has done which gets under my skin - such as setting up a different folder structure in Outlook (which may not be IMAP's 'fault' per se, but rather that of MS.) i assume this can be remedied after some digging around. Now, only if IMAP could sync Office contacts and calendars...
  13. Wow, okay so far I love IMAP. Thank you. So I've only one problem now lol. When I go to delete an email, instead of Outlook dumping the deleted item into the 'Deleted Items' folder, it just puts a strikethrough it. How do I officially delete the files for Outlook tidyness or am I stuck only to be able to delete items from webmail? Thanks again. NOTE: I actually found the answer to this by simple Googling. The answer is here: h_tp://www.ideanode.com/supportdocs/16/how-to-delete-imap-messages-in-outlook Forgive me for asking, it's been a 12 hour long day troubleshooting two routers and it just hit 2:45 am. I'm off to bed...
  14. Hey thanks for that information - it's consolidated and very handy. It looks like the days of POP are limited (although that article was written back in 05)...
  15. Thanks Bruce for the quick reply. I was trying to compare Imap with POP earlier and got even more confused as I searched the web. 1) Is IMAP a better protocol then POP? 2) Do you prefer Outlook to read IMAP versus POP? 3) Is the setup similar and if so, what if anything changes?
