  1. I replied to the original setup email from TCH and requested assistance. Tina responded immediately and fixed the problem with the nospam.TCH password reset email no getting through. TCH support is the reason I remain a customer!!!
  2. Signed up, now wife isn't getting email relating to kid's school, scouts, PTA, etc. Went to nospam.totalchoicehosting.com and did the lost password option but neither of us ever received a password reset email. Tried a gmail address associated with TCH and at least it recognized this was not an email address associated with the spam filter. Where is the "button" you speak of and all the quarantined emails? In the nospam.TCH site? I'm sure its all no-brainer simply, but right now the wife and I just can't figure it out...and I'm catching flack from my better half. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
  3. I hate to disagree with you since I barely understand this stuff, but after much more trial and error and additional research, I think the following is what is needed to clear up the new archive folder error: >#==== NEW DEFAULT FOLDER PERMISSION ===== DirUmask 0022 First note spelling of "DirUmask" and, second, note that the perms command works differently than the mask command, in short, it works backwards. Anyway, the above code is what worked for me.
  4. And or those of you coming to this thread with Movable Type problems, I just posted the below in the MT forum: When the upgrade hit my server, my Movable Type blog developed multiple problems namely a lot of "Error 500 Internal server error." The following is what I learned the hard way as to how to fix the problems. Maybe it will save someone the hours I spend figuring it out. First, you need to change the file permissions on all of your Movable Type files that end in ".cgi" to 755. For me, most of the .cgi files were found in public_html/cgi-bin/mt4 folder and I found one straggler elsewhere. Second, long...oh, so very long...story short, the MT default, at least for version 4.x, is to assign permission 666 to all files it creates. This causes problems with the new PHP upgrades. Additionally, manually tweaking the permissions will only provide a temporary fix as MT will change the permission back the next time it creates the file. I was able fix the errors by making MT assign permission 644 to all files it creates. I accomplished this by adding the following at the very end of my mt-config.cgi file: >#==== NEW DEFAULT FILE PERMISSION == HTMLPerms 0644 Since making these changes, everything has worked fine.
  5. Recently TCH began upgrading PHP on their many servers as discussed here.

  6. Is this online status indicator service still being provided by TCH?
  7. It's not just an illusion. Each year becomes a smaller fraction of our lives, so with the measuring stick by which we compare each year constantly changing, each year does indeed become shorter as we grow older. In grade school, summers lasted an eternity. By high school they were shorter and by college shorter yet. In my forties, last year I bought a bunch of mulch in the spring to spread around in my flower gardens during the summer. Summer came and went before I realized I hadn't opened a bag. Kids growing up so fast. The realization that we are only on this earth a short time. Make today count, there aren't enough tomorrows.
  8. TCH Blog Looks like posts went up starting on February 4, 2008, and ended 8 days later on the 12th. Dead project?
  9. Grrrr... Yes, I want to do the correct, official, recommended, approved, proper, not-a-work-around, way to access SquirrelMail both securely and insecurely (two links). Surprisingly, this is not a simple question. 1) Can I access Squirrelmail in the recommend manner which won't go away soon directly, without first going through WebMail and then Selecting SquirrelMail? 2) Does your comment refer to both links I posted in bold or only to the secure link? 3) I can't access WHM (WebHostManagement) to alter ports such as 465 and 995 and proxy settings because I don't have a reseller account, correct? _____________________________ In other words, for evryone's benefit, what are the six official direct links that TCH customers should use to access Horde/SquirrelMail/RoundQube both securely and insecurely???
  10. I submitted a ticket and the awesome TCH folks fixed it right up for me. All is working well, and for anyone who come across this later, here are the secure and insecure links for SquirrelMail: E-mail (Secure) https://felucia.tchmachines.com/sqmail/ E-mail (Insecure) http://www.domain-name.ext/sqmail/
  11. I tried the link and got the following error message: I'll submit a help ticket and report back. Thanks.
  12. And...we just stepped outside my area of understanding. Where and how do I make these settings? I'm really ignorant about everything "ports" related. Does some have a good reference source on the topic?
  13. I successfully allowed the exception but I get the following error message when I go to address:
  14. I tried that and I get the following error message:
  15. I know this has been covered elsewhere, but it has been covered different ways under different circumstances that I'm not sure what now applies since I just got the server update. For my non-secure SquirrelMail, I now use: http://domain-name.com:2095/3rdparty/squirrelmail/index.php What do I use for secure https SquirrelMail access (directly without going through webmail first)? Or can I not do that without my own SSL (?) certificate? Thanks.
  16. Holy coincidence Batman! Thanks for the info, now I won't worry about there being a bunch of other hidden problems that I haven't yet discovered. TCH Rocks!
  17. Correction: too little sleep, I kept looking for the php.ini file I uploaded only to remember I decided against doing that and instead put the following into an .htaccess file in the Gallery directory which worked to get rid of the upload restrictions:
  18. I actually found a post referring to that in my search to find a solution to my problem. However, it does not explain why all my symptoms suddenly appeard this morning after I messed around with stuff last night. Unless they just finally pushed the update to Felusia overnight and my installing Gallery was just a coincidence. Otherwise, this does not explain the source of my problem.
  19. After I've check my squirrel mail and logged out, I go about my business surfing the internet. On Windows XP using Explorer several websites away from my email, I will frequently get a login popup: Does anyone know why this is???
  20. Short Version: I contacted tech support with my symptoms and they very quickly gave me a solution to avoid they symptoms. But, I'm still concerned about the actual problem that caused the symptoms in the first place and so I came here. Long Version:I must have screwed up something last night. What I did: installed Gallery via fantastico and customized it. In order to get around upload limits, I uploaded a php.ini file to the danzfamily.com/gallery directory. I also "looked" at some of my .htaccess files (I thought I only looked at them). Symptoms: this morning, my website (danzfamily.com) was defaulting to index.htm rather than index.php. (I added "DirectoryIndex index.php" to my public_html folder and it fixed this one symptom.) http://danzfamily.com/sqmail no longer pulls up my email. http://danzfamily.com/cpanel, although cpanel pulls up fine, it now has some sort of redirect before it gets there that I'd never seen before I don't know if I deleted a higher root .htaccess file or what I changed to cause the problem. Tech Support gave me new links that I had not been using for cpanel and email For cpanel ---> http://danzfamily.com:2082/ For e-mail ---> http://danzfamily.com:2095/ As for the latter I now use http://danzfamily.com:2095/3rdparty/squirrelmail/index.php to get directly to squirrel mail instead of just webmail. Concern: These two new links fix the symptom, but the problem still exists and I'm concerned about other manifestations of the problem that I don't know about. Any one have any ideas about what the cause of all this was? Thanks!
  21. I have a Movable Type blog, an unused phpBB forum, and a small static backend website and I am approaching 3000MB!. I downloaded and deleted 3 months worth of logs which have been growing to where they just crossed over 100MB for a one-month log, freeing up nearly 300MB of space three days ago. Since then, in three days, with just one short blog post, my disk usage has creeped up to 3000MB again. Any idea what's going on or why I'm using up so much disk space despite doing relatively nothing?

    What Is It ?

    No opening in the bottom which would allow air to circulate to the mouth, but you are on to something with the hanging suggestion. I received this response elsewhere on the interweb:

    What Is It ?

    While cleaning out our parents home, my sister came across the item below. We have no idea what it is, nor do we even remember it. Since, we've never seen it, it's probably 30-40 years old and maybe older. It likely came from overseas, but your guess as to exactly where is as good as ours. China? It's about 2 1/2 feet tall and made entirely of wood. It is far too fragile to be any kind of cane-like steadying device. It has a two inch deep hole, which would fit a dowel rod or cigarette (but probably not a cigar), in the back of its throat. Given the shape of the top of the mouth, my best guess is that it was designed to hold incense. However, the ashes would not drop into the base, which would make it a very large, poorly designed, incense holder. I don't really think it's an incense holder, but that's all I can think of. The off-center base. There are no tell-tale markings or anything anywhere which would give an obvious clue as to its origin or function. Does anyone have any ideas, or even wild speculation?
