  1. Trying to view AWStats, getting "There are no domains which have awstats stats to display." Site www.austinmodelsandtalent.com. Can you assist? Thanks in Advance, Eric
  2. Photographing bands is tough because its usually so dark and the performers generally move a lot. To compensate for the movement and darkness you generally have to use a fast lens and high ISO. The high ISO makes the pictures grainy though. Having a fast lens will help a LOT (By fast I mean large aperture) but then its impossible to get the whole band in focus - and fast lenses can be quite pricey. You're probably better off using night mode if you're using automatic settings but really you're just going to have to experiment. Forget about getting the whole band in focus in one shot if they are spread out at all. The large aperture will make that difficult. Here's a couple shots I took with no flash, 1600 ISO, f4. I don't have a faster lens so I had to crank the ISO up. 1/25 shutter This one 1/50 shutter You can see the graininess - and that's after Paint Chopping it. I generally don't do this style of photography but if I were planing on doing it more often I'd pick up a faster lens (f1.2 or f1.4). Good luck!
  3. I used Fantastico to install phpBB on one of my sites, and I've since used Fantastico to keep that install up to date. Now phpBB is missing from my list of items in Fantastico on both of my sites. What's up?
  4. Thank you for the update. I was suspicious of some issues at the new DC (one of my domains is hosted on Naboo) but I didn't have enough evidence to submit a ticket. So I posted a question here on the forums which was promptly deleted. I then got a PM saying if I was having trouble to open a ticket. I wish he would have just told me that there were known issues. I then attempted to submit a ticket via email (which is how I've submitted low-priority issues in the past) and got a reject message of some sort. I blew it off, thinking you'd get it all fixed up eventually. Luckily for me I don't run this site to make money. I've had to endure complaints from my friends though, but I can handle that.
  5. There's about a bazillion tutorials on the 'net on PHP. But I really like to have a book to reference when it comes down to learning something. A little while back I picked up PHP in Easy Steps and loved it. An excellent beginner PHP and MySQL book. Its a couple years old now but the info is still current however some of the mysql stuff has been replaced with advance commands. http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearc...N=9780760747865 G'luck.
  6. The SQL export is about 60 MB so I guess I'm out of luck without support doing the upload for me.
  7. I guess I'll have to try that however I was hoping to not have to rely on support. You see I want to set up a test database and will have to refresh it with live data on occasion. I found in phpMyAdmin where you can copy a database to another but I always get access denied when phpMyAdmin tries to create a DB. Looks like the only way to create a DB is to use the mysql tool that's in Control Panel. However phpmyadmin won't copy a database to an existing one, it always tries to make a new one which fails of course.
  8. I'm trying to import a database backup in to a test database using MySQLAdmin however the import times out because it is too big. Regardless, is there any way to import, or essentially copy a live database to a test one?
  9. I think you'd be much better served setting up an MRTG graph with thresholds for alerts.
  10. Likewise, I also took advantage of this service and TCH took care of the MX record change quickly and without fuss! And though it took me a bit to get use to Google's email client, I really like it and their spam checker is outstanding!
  11. I can't view your link, it seems to be incorrect. However, you can go to http://validator.w3.org, input the correct URL, and it will spit out errors that make it invalid HTML. I've found that if I correct all the errors that the validator shows then the site will look pretty much the same in IE as it does in Mozilla.
  12. Just curious what forum software is running this forum. I like it
  13. OOooh OOOhhh! I see "my" server! Well, one of my web sites is running on Naboo. SWG was such a fun game but I haven't played it in over a year. Wookiee FTW!
  14. Great work! And I'm one of the first to use the new DC woohoo!
  15. Outages should be reported to the help desk, not to a community forum. That might be why you didn't find a place to post your outage report.
  16. I get the feeling this will get a fairly high post count.
  17. I found the problem. Sorry guys I had FireFox set to load images only from the originating site. I thought that would save me from getting ads and other crud on 'net... Since those PNGs are linked to a different web site URL, firefox didn't display them. I found this by installing the Beta 1.5 of firefox. Instead of just not showing the images, it actually puts a broken image placeholder there, giving me the hint in the right direction.
  18. Yes, no problem. (also edited the previous post)
  19. I have flash installed and can view flash items without any difficulty. What I can't see with Firefox that I can with IE is the graphs. Which is truly odd since they appear to just be PNG images. Here is what I see when I view that URL. I used about a 2-week old installation of Firefox 1.0.6. But you folks can see them just fine? Eric Edit - Viewing the source I found the image at http://server81.totalchoicehosting.com/mrtg/index-day.png, I punch that in to firefox and see it just fine. But I can't tell why in the heck the images aren't showing up on the page.
  20. Have you tried THIS link? It doesn't seem to support Firefox either...
  21. Is there any voice chat service such as Ventrilo or TeamSpeak available from TCH? If not, can anyone recommend a good, low-cost solution? aTdHvAaNnKcSe! Eric
