  1. What did you finally do? I have been using aMember since November 2013 and it does everything you are looking for in your post. You control site access by the product they sign up for. Easy to do on our HTML / PHP site, easier on a WordPress site.
  2. I too am having trouble with a script that claims to be compatible with PHP5.4, however, I see error messages indicating the problem is related to connecting to the DB. I have seen other sites say the issue is with how PHP5.4 connects to MySQL. Using old password hashes is the main suggestion for the error. If I change the MySQL password for the DB user with PHP5.3 set to something else, I see the exact same error messages as when I run the script with the MySQL password set correctly and PHP set to version 5.4 This suggests the issue is more about how PHP and MySQL exchange passwords when connecting. Note: I already have a support ticket open with this information.
  3. Thank You all for your hard work and long hours today.
  4. The smf forum on our site is not working either. Instead of the correct folders and files in the forum folder /smf/, there are a number of core.???? type files in there. core.10001 for example matra server
  5. endor is now showing a 500 Internal error when attempting to access the site that has been working since 10am.
  6. matra is running but site is not working yet get a 404, NOT FOUND Apache error when attempting to access the site.
  7. Site on matra is still down. Site on endor is working fine now Thank You for keeping us informed during this busy time
  8. I have been using Trillian Pro for a number of years and Astra (Pro) since early on in the beta program. I love the meta contact feature that lets me group multiple accounts under one name that I can select. "Dave" for example contains his AOL, Yahoo!, IRC, MSN and GTalk accounts under one contact entry in my buddy list. Who can remember who dlb4675 @ aol might be? If I want to choose which IM service I use with him I hover the contact name until the various accounts appear below. If you have a camera and buddies with cameras, Astra lets you video conference with the IM clients (Yahoo!, MSN, etc) of other users or a Trillian version if your buddy also runs Trillian. Trillian was the first program that let me talk to anyone no matter what IM service they used, I just needed an account on each service and the combined buddy list in one program. Because I never could get the online version of Astra to work as expected, I mostly use meebo.com now. For two compelling reasons 1. No software to install across multiple computers (I routinely use 3 computers) 2. IM with Chat log history is available from any computer with a browser. This allows a conversation to continue even after I go home/to work. Both programs have the same look/feel for using IM no matter what service the users are on. I really like that feature. I looked at Digsby but didn't see any compelling reason to try it.
  9. I run php forums on my own website as well. However, the setup we are looking to convert is not quite as easy as that. Yes, My guess is both the directory structure and folder / file case issues will be areas for clean-up before the conversion. It's the other unknowns that bother me too. Thanks to both of you for your comments.
  10. I have a site hosted here at TCH and am recommending that TCH host an application for my company. Currently the system is running in a WindowsXP / Apache / MySQL / PHP / Filezilla setup. I am suggesting that if the code is written properly the O/S should not matter. That switching to a Unix/Linux / Apache / MySQL /PHP setup might give them more options. Can anyone give me clues on what problems we might encounter...or at least suggest what to look for when considering conversion from Windows to Linux?
  11. ice cream (as in rocky road..)
  12. I notice that a new web crawler, its a pic dot com, is pulling message posts repeatedly from my SMF forums. Every hour pulling data at a rate 2 times my normal daily traffic. (I submitted a ticket to support already). It looks like it changes the message every minute. (Pulling the same message about 20 times per minute. I don't know if anyone else is experiencing the same issue or not but a quick look at my bandwidth report was a shocker. Does anyone have any info about this thing?
  13. You can use CPanel to setup redirects too but that is not as easy as what Bruce shows. If you replace your html files (delete them) with php files (upload them) your site will use the new php files without the redirects...AS long as you change all the site navigation links on your pages and menus. (Your menu links will be to contact.php instead of contact.html for example as you said) If your site has been up for awhile the redirects will help convert external links to your site.
  14. I am looking for suggestions on the best way to get e-mail to one of my site members. (He handles all the info@mysite.com mail) Volume is light, about 4 to 24 messages per week and he uses AOL for access. He has been very patient with the whole process but continues to have problems logging in to Squirrel Mail. He does not want to stop using AOL for his ISP and does not know how (or want to) setup Mail on his Mac machine so he could use pop mail. He is willing to use a reliable webmail program though. First we used forwarding to a Yahoo! account and when that option went away we switched to Squirrel Mail (via ...mysite.org/sqmail) Additionally I found out that 1. Squirrel Mail keeps all the mail, including mail stored in SPAM folders, on the website (in it's own folder of course) and 2. Site backups include all Squirrel Mail folders This is a problem when there is any malware mail in the SPAM folder. My A-V program quarantines the entire site backup file when it finds anything. I do not want to have to delete all SPAM mail on the server before doing any site backups. I've thought of: - Setting up Thunderbird (or some mail application) on his Mac but that means another unwanted program on his computer AND it limits him to one computer - Switching to Horde or Round Cube but I don't expect either of those solutions to address the SPAM mail issue. How does your site handle user e-mail? Or what options might you suggest? Thank You in advance for your thoughts and ideas.
