  1. Did you do a clean install of 3 or just installed it over 2?
  2. Yes you are right in regards to it being removed in PHP 6. I would personally just send all your customers an email saying that you are disabling register globals at a set date and that way they have plenty of time to update their scripts. Most scripts they have obtained would of been updated anyway (hopefully) and possibly contain security fixes. If it's their own script then they need to get off their backsides and fix them anyway.
  3. Thanks have disabled them now. Just seems strange having them enabled.
  4. I was just messing about with some code and it told me that register_globals is enabled on my server, matra. Just wondering if this is true and if so why? Last I checked register_globals is disabled by default for extra security.
  5. Given you have now narrowed it down to emails being sent from the pipe script you could pass this information on in a ticket. Although I'm confused as to what you mean by a pipe script.
  6. I'm holding off updating until all the add ons I use have been updated such as Lightning (nightly does work with TB3), Google Calendar Provider, Contacts Sidebar and Virtual Identity. @OJB - You really need all 24,000+ emails? I think you need to do some serious housekeeping.
  7. I just tested using this bit of code >$add_headers = 'From: YYY@MyDomain.net' . "\r\n" . 'Return-path: YYY@MyDomain.net' . "\r\n"; mail('webmaster@carbonize.co.uk', 'test' , 'Just a test message' , $add_headers, "-fYYY@MyDomain.net"); and here is the header >Received: from nobody by matra.tchmachines.com with local (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from <YYY@MyDomain.net>) id 1NG6ly-0001se-39 for webmaster@carbonize.co.uk; Thu, 03 Dec 2009 03:10:46 -0500 Wonder if there is a problem with the sendmail on the habs server or if it is running in safe mode for some reason. BTW this bit of code $add_headers = 'From: YYY@MyDomain.net' . "\r\n" . 'Return-path: YYY@MyDomain.net' . "\r\n"; would be better as $add_headers = "From: YYY@MyDomain.net\nReturn-path: YYY@MyDomain.net\n";
  8. The only solution is the one you have been given. I use the -femail@address.com in my mail sending and this is my header >Received: from nobody by matra.tchmachines.com with local (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from <noreply@carbonize.co.uk>) id 1NFswf-00040K-CZ for webmaster@carbonize.co.uk; Wed, 02 Dec 2009 12:24:53 -0500 So you need to check your code again or if you wish feel free to email me a copy to look at.
  9. It's decided to start working now.
  10. Whenever I click 'Mark Board As Read' the forum returns this error: [#20312] Sorry, but you do not have permission to use this feature. If you are not logged in, you may do so using the form below if available.
  11. Oh I can install any Perl module I want? never knew that Still not sure if I would be Tweeting from dadamail or not just thought I'd make sure I could if I decide to.
  12. Dadamail 4 is in beta and supports Twitter but only if certain modules are installed. Was just curious if the two modules it requires are installed on TCH servers? You can read what they are at hxxp://dadamailproject.com/support/documentation-dada-4_0_0-beta_1/features-twitter_support.pod.html <edit>Why does the forum put a space between support. and pod ?
  13. But XP is broke. The main reason that Vista was made secure to the point of being stupid was because of the amount of people complaining that XP wasn't secure.
  14. If you are not willing to shed your prejudice you will never see the beauty.
  15. Any word on this as, more often than not, when I try to update a plugin it fails.
  16. Windows 7 is, in theory, a lot more secure than XP.
  17. Just remember that extensions liek Auto Pager seriosuly increase the memory usage of Firefox.
  18. If you use lots of different mailing forms then why not learn PHP and write your own? A mailing form script is not that complicated. There was a whole discussion about this along with various tutorial links / download links at lovingtech.net/webmaster-forum/thread-creating-input-forms
  19. Just as a side note you should change the >> to >>
  20. You might find my blog entry on blocking IPs using htaccess useful. http://carbonize.co.uk/wp/2009/05/15/blocking-ip-addresses-using-htaccess/
  21. Why would TCH lose any time over it? Not their problem what PHP chooses to support or not support. So long as PHP works as it is supposed to then that's their job done.
  22. Trillian Astra has now been released as a finshed product but I am not going to use it. Gave it a try again and I found it just to ugly and cluttered. I'm sticking with Digsby for now despite it's flaws and bugs.
  23. Small PHP habit to get in to though is to use single quotes as much as possible, like you did in your require statement, as it slightly reduces overheads and increses the speed of the script.
  24. I stopped using ereg a few years ago as I prefered the power of preg. You can only support old functions for so long until you have to say that's it and turn them off. If we all lived by your philosophy of not changing things we would still be all using $HTTP_GET_VARS instead of just $_GET or we would all still be designing websites that looked right in IE5.5 and Netscape 4. Oh and please learn what deprecated means. Here's what it says on php.net/ereg This function has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 6.0.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged. "DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0" not removed. This means they are planning on removing it and so you will get a warning that the function is deprecated if you use it but, and this is the important part, IT WILL STILL WORK. As web developers it is up to us to keep up with the latest functions, changes, ideas and PHP will give you a warning when something has become deprecated so you have time to learn what it has been replaced with or a better way of doing it.
  25. Actually I have had files and directories that I could not delete using either FTP, File Manager nor PHP for some unknown reason. These things happen, life goes on.
