  1. Sounds like register globals may be turned on on the Unix box. If so, be sure to research the security implications of running with register globals enabled if you don't know. I believe register globals is being removed from PHP6 due to the number of security exploits it allowed.

  2. You might try something like this. It should redirect any requests for files that do not exist to your blog.


    As a transparent rewrite:

    >RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /myblog/ [L]


    Or as a 301:

    >RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . http://www.mywebsite.com/myblog/index.php [R=301L]

  3. You are getting the server not found message because you removed the subdomains in cPanel. Without the subdomains set up, there is no DNS entry for the subdomain and the request never reaches the server.


    You need to recreate the subdomains in cPanel and either use the redirects OJB gave you in .htaccess or just go ahead and let cPanel handle it for you.


    That last redirect could be handled in .htaccess with:


    >RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^graphics\.mbstia\.com
    RewriteRule ^content/view/139/113/$ http://mbstia.com/helpful-info/77-5-ways-to-save-money-when-working-with-a-web-designer [L,R=301]

  4. Cool. I was concerned when I first checked the reports and saw 100% uptime for servers that I knew had not been available 100%. I've dealt with hosts in the past that liked to proclaim uptime numbers that were taken from within the DC and therefore only reflected the status of the server itself and not the network infrastructure, internet connections, etc. which seemed to be responsible for most of their downtime. I didn't think TCH was doing that. For some reason, it didn't occur to me until I was typing the original post that hyperspin may have simply been on an unaffected route. It's reassuring to know that's all it was. My faith is restored (not that it was all that shaken.) lol


    Nice response time dealing with last week's outage, BTW. Keep up the good work.

  5. Wired will be much more reliable and faster than wireless. I wouldn't recommend connecting workstations wirelessly in an office environment.


    As far as hub vs switch, I don't think either one should require any configuration. As stated previously, a switch gives better performance, though with only 6 PCs on the network, congestion shouldn't be a big issue. A switch will also increase security by preventing someone at one PC from using a packet sniffer to see traffic destined for another PC on the network (emails, password, etc) if you're concerned about something like that.

  6. It is somehow being processed by magic quotes twice. Maybe it's a value passed in through POST from a form causing 'O'Neill' to be escaped as 'O\'Neill'. If the value were then written as is to a cookie, when it was later passed back to PHP the backslash (\\) and quote (\') would again be escaped resulting in 'O\\\'Neill', etc.

  7. No, mysql_real_escape_string() is used to guard against SQL injection attacks. It doesn't care about any HTML that may be contained in the string. Something like strip_tags() can be used to remove HTML tags (but won't escape quotes, etc. that are used in SQL injection.)

  8. The RewriteRules you listed look to be to prevent people from hotlinking images from your site. Anytime someone requests an image (files ending in jpg, jpeg, gif, png, bmp) that wasn't linked from your site, the RewriteRule is redirecting them to /index.html.* which obviously doesn't exist. That is triggering the original "file does not exist" error you were seeing in the cPanel error log.


    The 301 in the raw log entries would seem to indicate that the request for /index.html.* was also redirected, but I'm not sure about that. Anyhow, removing the ".*" from the RewriteRule should fix it.

  9. Don't include the domain name in the first part of the redirect. The 2nd part should begin with http://domain/. So, using the example from your original post, it should be:


    >Redirect 301 /science/top-10-ideal-future-inventions-and-technologies

  10. You shouldn't need to switch to DADA. Here's a link explaining how to adjust PHPList's send rate: http://docs.phplist.com/PhpListConfigSendRate


    Edit: I just reread the original post and you say that someone at TCH has already set up the batch processing. If it was just set too conservative, then adjusting PHPList's setting will work. If it's already sending the max allowed, then that's as fast as they can be sent regardless of which script you use.

  11. My account with the new live interface can't forward to non hotmail/msn accounts either. As a matter of fact, it even says so right on the page where you set up the forwards.



    You can forward your mail to one other e-mail address that ends in hotmail.com, msn.com, live.com, or custom domains. You'll receive an e-mail at that address asking you to verify your account.


    Maybe Bruce has gotten grandfathered in or something?
