  1. Why don't you use relative paths instead?
  2. Thanks for the link to the extension, I solved the problem by entering serverXX.totalchoicehosting.com as the mail server instead of mail.example.com.
  3. I had a problem with backup timing and my site being slow, I opened a ticket and the help desk was very helpful in sorting it out, I was moved to the UK server where backup timing fits more with my local timing, the whole process was painless, I'm simply amazed by support here, it just rocks! Thanks everyone, and especially TCH-RobertM
  4. Hrm, what's up with TCH? First it was the major announcement thing and now this. Hope it's good news anyway
  5. Amazing, thanks for sharing!
  6. http://www.nukefixes.com/ If your're going to patch your installation, please test it on your machine first, to make sure not to break your online site.
  7. For the second question: >RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^index\.html$ index.php RewriteRule ^index\.htm$ index.php
  8. 1) Not that I know of, I have been here for 10 months, maybe someone else who's been around more can confirm, I'm interested too. 2) I don't remember having any downtime during those 10 months, if any happened, it was for very short periods or something. 3) Yeah they know their stuff very well, and reply to tickets very fast, I usually get replies that solve the issue within minutes. 4) I guess I knew your current host, they don't have cPanel right? It would have been easier if they used cPanel, anyway it's still quite easy to trasfer the database and files, download/upload files in FTP, then import the db dump in phpMyAdmin or upload it and open a ticket for the techies to import it, if it's larger than what phpMyAdmn can handle. HTH
  9. You can either use the email auto-forwarding feature in cPanel (it's under mail), this will forward your emails to another server, however, I don't think this will help in case of downtime. Another option is hosting your email on another server, you can do so by changing MX entries for your domain(s) (also under mail in cPanel).
  10. Well one way I can think of is using the "background" property in CSS, edit phpBB CSS file and add: >body { background: url(/map.png); } Check out this page: http://www.w3schools.com/css/pr_background.asp You may need to experiment with the other attributes of this property. I think this will do the trick, HTH.
  11. The username will be in the global variable: $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] More info here: http://www.php.net/features.http-auth EDIT: TCH-David was faster than me
  12. The other day phpbb's sessions table got corrupted on my account too, have no idea why, I deleted and recreated it, and everything was back to normal, good thing the table's data isn't vital for phpbb.
  13. There are many ways to do it, I use: >wget -q -O - http://example.com/file.php HTH
  14. If you use a proxy, your IP will be in the x-forwarded-for header, check out the examples on this page: http://www.php.net/getenv To get an idea of how to find the correct IP address. HTH
  15. Send a private message to a red admin, including your name and domain info.
  16. You need to create the albums directory using cPanel's file manager, you can create it under public_html for example, the path will be: /home/YourUsername/public_html/albums Then set the albums directory permissions to 777. EDIT: Now that I notice this is your first post, welcome to the family cneal
  17. Check your Internet Options for proxy settings (it's under the Connections tab), if there is a proxy, configure Firefox to use it too.

    Drupal Anyone?

    Just park all the domains over the main domain where drupal is installed, then follow the instructions in INSTALL.txt. Use the parked domains icon in cPanel.

    Drupal Anyone?

    Welcome to TCH Actually it is possible to use the same Drupal installation for more than one site, INSTALL.txt explains how, you need to park all the domains that run Drupal in the same account, more info: (quoted from INSTALL.txt) Using the same installation for all the sites makes it easier to upgade Drupal later on, OTOH, you need to park the domains in the same account as I said.
  20. Hehe, yeah thank you very much.
  21. Hi, Is it possible to change PHP error reporting in .htaccess? If so how? Thanks.

    I'd like to add Ubuntu to the list, the distro is very easy to install and manage. EDIT: Didn't notice that schussat already mentioned it...

    FYI, firestarter is a frontend for iptables, it's possible to configure iptables using the commandline, but firestarter makes it a lot easier and faster for basic configurations.
