  1. I am not sure whether this will work but try naming your select MBS-Services-of-Interest[] With the square brackets at the end then when it has posted it might be an array which you can run through each option selected.
  2. I was handed my redundancy notice a month ago, which expires end of November.... Being a web developer I am sure there are others in a similar situation so I imagine there are going to be more unemployed people than jobs available... which sucks. But aside from that I can't really say I have been that affected yet, I just hope the media is making it out to be worse than it is and we see an upturn sometime soon. The one thing which might help me out is the state of the housing market, when I buy a house with the lady we will be first time buyers... there are LOADS of houses/flats on
  3. You say the data could be coming from anywhere, but surely you have a query at some point to add the data into the db? So in your insert query do something like this: >$query = ' INSERT INTO tbl_name (fld_name) VALUES(\''.strtoupper($the_value).'\')'; i.e. convert the string to uppercase as you insert it into the db or is this not what you want? if you want to write an update query it will be something like: >UPDATE tbl_name SET fld_name = UPPER(fld_name) WHERE fld_name = 'blahblah'
  4. I am a Brit, with dual-nationality - my second nationality is American... I guess I am eligible to vote, but I have never done so in the past because I have lived most my life in Britain... But, if I am eligible I will be casting my vote for Barack I think.
  5. turned out my dns had propagated fine, but my DNS zone settings needed synching and updating for those two domains, which TCH help desk did very quickly for me now all is well thanks guys!, I am a very happy bunny
  6. Everything went swimmingly... I asked to be moved to a reseller on Sunday evening (I guess the staff who do migrations don't work Sundays) on Monday I was informed my sites would be migrated early Tuesday morning overnight... This was the case, everything has been set up and everything seems to work... except two of my domains seem to be taking their time propagating... Can anyone else test these for me: http://www.mixforme.co.uk and http://www.mixforme.com What is weird is I also changed the DNS on another parked domain for that site: http://www.masterforme.co.uk/
  7. Thanks guys I have submitted my ticket to the help desk... hopefully it will be smooth running
  8. Thanks Dick, One final question... do I contact Billing, Tech Support or Sales to get this migration in motion?
  9. Thanks alot Mike... settled my nerves a little!!
  10. Hey guys I currently have 3 sites hosted with yourselves, 2 on deluxe and 1 on starter. Domain 1: Deluxe Hosting - I receive: 140GB bandwidth and 3000MB server space for $98 per year Domain 2: Deluxe Hosting - I receive: 140GB bandwidth and 3000MB server space for $98 per year Domain 3: Starter Hosting - I receive: 40GB bandwidth and 1400MB server space for $44 per year Domain 1 uses on average 15GB bandwidth per month and roughly uses 1300MB of server space Domain 2 barely uses anything as its very new and I completely overbought my hosting... currently it uses: 200MB per month
  11. This will need to be a cron job yes. I had a quick google search for a mysql export to csv PHP script, I came across a few. You would have to tie in the emailing thing yourself, or find a script that can send attachments. Beware though if your database is large and you try executing a query to grab a lot of data you may end up locking your mysql tables for a long period (hence rendering your site's database unusable until the backup has finished). Also, if you try sending a large CSV file there are limits to the size of file that can be emailed from TCH servers so this may cause an
  12. If you haven't taken the plunge and uninstalled follow these instructions. Log into your Cpanel (go to http://www.YOURSITENAME.com/cpanel) Enter the username and password provided to you by TCH to log in. Scroll to the bottom of the page and find the link for PHPMyAdmin Click that link, when PHPMyAdmin loads in a new window you should be presented with a drop down list (top left of the page) with a list of all your databases in. Click on the database you set up for Zen cart. Take a look at all the tables in your database (they are listed in a column on the left hand

    try scouting out: hxxp://www.opensourcecms.com it has preinstalled examples of loads of CMS systems that you can try before you install..
  14. what you have returned is a resource, not actual data you need to do something like this: >$queryDinnerNumber="SELECT SUM(dinner_number) as total FROM data WHERE dinner = 'yes'"; $resultDinnerNumber=mysql_query($queryDinnerNumber); while($row = mysql_fetch_array($resultDinnerNumber)) { $actual_results[] = $row; } print_r($actual_results); // this will print out your results array so you can see the values! echo $actual_results[0]['total'] .'people have been invited to the dinner.';
  15. have a look at: http://www.opensourcecms.com there are loads of CMSs you can trial before you install, all are open-source (hence free - and in the case of the more reputable ones, very well supported) have a look under the portals section as I believe these may be what you are looking for?
  16. For me they look identical in both FF and IE7... just loads really slowly in IE

    How Do I?

    I would personally do it with PHP and dynamically change what appears in the right pane as Bob Crabb said
  18. If its a 404 then it means that the page you have pointed it to doesn't exist... So i guess its something to do with: RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/?$ /read.php?id=$1 [QSA,L] Im no good at mod_rewrite so I dont know If it was a 500 error it would have been a .htaccess error.. so I imagine its that line I have pasted above. Its possibly looking in the wrong directory? Not sure
  19. As Bruce said, its by using RewriteRule in your .htaccess file - essentially it is apache mod_rewriting but not done at a server level but rather directory level (as on shared hosting you obviously don't get access to the http.conf file) have a read of this: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_rewrite.html
  20. could check if the post array is non empty (hence the form has been submitted) and also check the referring page if one or more of them doesnt match what you expect then redirect somewhere else something like this: >if(!isset($_POST['input_button_name']) || $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] != 'whatever_you_expect_it_to_be') { header("location: index.php"); } bare in mind though for security reasons that http_referrers are set by the user agent... which means they aren't necessarily secure
  21. will anyone be allowed to access process_userupdate.php???
  22. when I use the php mail function mine was like this: mail($to, $subject, $msg, "FROM: support@piazza.cc"); this seems to work for all my messages.
  23. Hey, Im sure there are more header variables you have to set than that... try looking here: http://www.phpit.net/code/force-download/ and adding in the missing headers... most notably i think is the missing mimetype/content-type obviously I can't guarantee this code works as I didn't write it, but worth a shot?
  24. Sorry to post again in the same thread, but this is getting a bit confusing and worrying. I contacted the help desk and they have told me they have changed some server settings but it should work. Problem is it doesn't. I put a die('Are we here'); just under my if (isset($_POST['uploadfile'])) at the top of my upload script (it posts back to itself) and then submitted the form. The same 'connection reset' error popped up and my die statement was NOT executed. This to me tells me it can't be a coding issue surely? If its not even getting back into my script the problem must lie
  25. Hey guys This kinda follows on from that Large POST upload thread. I finished coding my site a while back and don't recall having this problem before but now when uploading files, anything under 8MB works a treat. Anything over 8MB does not even seem to attempt to upload. It just dies straight away with (in FF) a connection reset page and in IE a cannot find server The page cannot be displayed error. Now, if it were an execution time issue im sure it would at least attempt to upload and then die part way through not just die immediately upon clicking submit! I have also alt
