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.

But that's just it - I can't.  My paid account is in the plesk system, and when I use the upgrade page, it shows me the info appropriate for my unpaid (and unused) freepgs system account.

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)
Alright, in that case, are there any other ways to send email from the plesk server?
Another question - if I switch to the freepgs server, can I still use my domain, email, subdomains, etc?

Yeah, okay.  I'll give that a try.  :)  Thanks for the suggestion.

its not a code error if uploaded the first 39 images...

Haha.. Well, I've had stranger problems.
Question - have you changed anything since uploading the initial 39?  If so, what?
One other thing, by any chance would you have reached your disk usage limit, thus causing it to fail?

Internal Server Error
That tends to imply it has something to do with the .htaccess file.  That's what I've experienced, at least.  Might want to undo whatever changes you made to the .htaccess file, see if that'll clear it up.
If it only works up until 39 images, that would imply that there is something different with the 40th, or something done differently with the 40th.  I really don't know what in your code might be doing this, since I haven't seen it.
Could it possibly be something wrong with the image you are uploading itself? I ask because 40 is a rather odd number for things to go wrong at.  100 makes more sense because it adds another digit, but 40 does not, which is why I find this so confusing.  If you could provide a sample of any code that is breaking or that you suspect is breaking, it would help a lot.  :)

First and foremost, add this line to your .htaccess file.  If you haven't got one, create one, and add this line:
php_value display_errors 1
Now you should see any php errors that are occurring.  Hopefully this will provide some insight into the problem, and we can work with it from there.
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?
Ah, okay..  Well is it possible for it to be re-enabled on a user-by-user basis, so that we don't all have to suffer for the transgressions of the few?
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

When ever I do this:

$SQL = "select * from USER_characters where username = \"$username\" and character = \"$chara\"";

I get this horrible "not a valid MySQL Resource" Error.

Could it be that character is a reserved word?  I've had issues with those before, and I dare say I would have described them as demonic, too.
Try this, see if it works:

$SQL = "select * from USER_characters where `username` = \"$username\" and `character` = \"$chara\"";
Quoted (if you could call those quotes, can't remember what they're called in any case) both column names, just in case.

Aside from that, I can't see anything wrong with your query - it all looks good to me.
Well, there are just some things you can't do with CSS.  :P  At the moment I'm using it to make a browser detection script so that some images I have that fade to the background look great in almost everything, and fairly decent in IE.  And if IE 7 supports alpha transparency, I'm gonna have to add in version checking as well.
Although I am aware that there are ways to get IE 6 to do alpha transparency, I'd rather just stick to something short, sweet, and to the point.
Plus I think you can use it for crawler detection as well, at least to some extent..  Could come in handy if you've got an intro page or something to that end that you want to redirect search engine crawlers past.
True, I suppose I could - but it starts to get a lot more complicated once you start checking for specific versions of specific browsers on specific operating systems..  And get_browser() makes all of that easy to the point of it being cheating.  :P  It would really simplify my code, and make my life that much easier.
