Support Requests / mail() disabled yet again?
August 20, 2006, 08:47:05 PM
The php function mail() had been previously disabled for security reasons - this was explained as being because of spammers.
Recently it seemed to be available again, and my scripts could send emails again.
It seems, however, that mail() has been disabled yet again for the same reason.
Is this going to continue happening for forever?  Because quite simply, I have a lot of important things that depend on being able to send emails - without these scripts/sites/etc. being functional, my account here is all but worthless to me.
I have had a lot of good experiences with freepgs, but if this keeps on happening, I'm gonna have to go elsewhere..  It just isn't possible for me to keep anything running with this happening constantly, and there isn't any viable alternative for me to use aside from mail().
If this is just a (very) short-term, soon-to-be-corrected issue, that's fine.  But if this is going to keep happening with this regularity, please tell me.  I cannot afford to sit by and wait for this to stop happening when I have no indication of any end in sight.
Support Requests / Hosting plans
August 16, 2006, 08:12:31 PM
I am considering upgrading my (paid, plesk) hosting plan to something a bit bigger, but I've got a few questions - for starters, how many subdomains does each plan provide?  Another thing that isn't clear is how much the upgrade costs - for example, if I have the $3 account, (which I'm quite sure I do), does it cost $3 to upgrade to the gold ($6) plan, or another $6 on top of what I've already paid?
Last of all, how do I actually upgrade a plesk account?  Correct me if I'm wrong, but the automated upgrade system is for upgrading plesk accounts, or so it would appear.  (I've actually got two accounts - my plesk account, (paid), and a linked account that I don't really use.  They have identical usernames)
Support Requests / browscap.ini
August 03, 2006, 08:47:28 PM
This is the second time I've made a topic about it and the third time I've mentioned it, but nobody seemed to pay much attention either of the last 2 times, so I will ask again - would we please be able to get browscap.ini installed?  You can download it over here..
If this isn't possible, or just isn't gonna happen, that's alright, but I'd like to at least be informed as to wether or not it's gonna happen, so I can stop wondering/asking about it.
I was just wondering if mail() usage was going to be restored any time in the near future.  I imagine I'm not alone in saying that it's absence is causing a fair number of problems for me..   Surely there is a better way to combat spammers than taking mail() away from all of us?
One of my scripts keeps throwing this error:
Warning: mail() has been disabled for security reasons in /var/www/vhosts/ (etc..)
I don't think this is any of my doing, but it'd be nice if I could get it re-enabled.

On an unrelated note, if this is possible and the admin has the time, it would be awesome if we could get browscap.ini installed..  I've brought it up before but nothing really happened, so I thought I'd beat the horse a bit more and see if it's dead.  ;)

I see from looking at some older posts that this issue came up recently and was apparently fixed.  Although the last post on that thread was 6 days ago, and I just got the error today, so I guess my report still stands
Is there any chance we could get browscap.ini installed so that we can use get_browser()?
This really would make my life easier, and I'm sure there are others that would feel the same way.
Support Requests / FTP problems
October 29, 2005, 09:22:32 PM
As of 15:15 MST on 2005-10-29, I can't connect to FTP..  It was probably broken before now, but it was just now that I tried connecting.
