Support Requests / Re: Spam from FreePGs?
July 30, 2006, 10:47:34 PM
Yeah, I also got one.. but hey, what can you do, SPAM happens, and the only way to eliminate spam is to get rid of methods of communication that could allow spam, and that is PM system, forum, email... and those are obviously things you can't get rid of, so we just have to live with the spam and hope the Administators will deal with the person appropriately (i.e. ban them)
An ftp uploader should have no problems uploading files regardless of their size. The online web interfaces for managing files do have limits though as to reduce server load, so this may be why you are having trouble.

What are you using to upload them?

The builtin net2FTP has a size and execution time limit on them (as to try and reduce server load). If you have your own FTP client you will not encounter problems with sizes and time limits.

Windows has a builtin FTP client in Explorer. Just open up my computer, in the address bar enter

You will get an error, thats normal. Press ok, to close the error and go to the File menu and select login as, enter your freepgd username and password in the dialog box and click the Log on button.

You should be able to view your files now, to upload a new file simply drag it / copy it over from another explorer window.
When it gets really slow like that its often cause some *censored* either accidentally or purposefully ran a script which contains for example a never ending loop which just causes everything to freeze up while the computer tries to process the commands etc. Usually its someone who constantly opens new connections to mysql databases and fills them with useles information... these users are usually temporarily suspended from their account etc.

Use the contact page to contact the Administrators directly. The community won't be able to tell you why you were specifically suspended.

Yes, the speeds are inconsistant sometimes, and can vary siginficantly. A lot of the time it is running slower than normal, its due to someone running a script which is hogging the CPU power.
Support Requests / Re: TK Domain Setup

A CNAME record is optional, not required for it to work. As far as I know its simply a way for example to forward a subdomain like www, to the domain so the user can put in both and just I think your could probably set up a www subdomain with freepgs if your .tk domain provider doesn't auto forward to

Remember to request to add the domain to your account through domains page in the options panel and wait up to 24hrs for a response from the admin for it to start working.

May you have to request a new subdomain from freepgs? Not sure though, since the whole subdomain thing is a new system just put into place.
Hmm maybe they simply mean this:

just using a very simple script to get external ip<?php
file_get_contents ('');
"The Freepgs Server IP seems to be: ".$file;

There is a simple solution... buy a domain.. I mean they're only $5 a year... and you really can't make a popular website without a domain.

Users who have a domain are not affected by the change. And overall its much better for you and your website and your visitors to have a simple domain name for your site.

As much as I agree with you that freepgs should have
1) Given warning
2) Allow both subdomains and the folder to work for the first couple of weeks atleast as a change-over period so you have time to update all your links etc.

I still think that regardless of your age, or financial status, $5 a year (or less than 42 cents a month, or just over 1 cent a day) is nothing to pay for such a necesity. Without a domain, your website appears unporfessional, visitors can't remember your address easily, visitors decide not to click a link because you are using a free subdomain service instead of a real domain. I hope you realize a couple of cents or less a day, is certainly worth it for such a valuable thing.

I myself just purchased another domain today.

Did you add the domain to your plesk account?

How will it know which site to go to if you just point it at the name servers? You need to tell the server its pointing to what to do with address.. I don't know about LVCS, but on freepgs you can request the domain to be added through a form.

QuoteAlso, when linking images or pages in my coding, is it still [or] or is it now [or]?

From now on you should make it a habit to use relative path coding, its much better for various reasons.

That means, <img src="hey.gif"> will look for the image hey.gif in the same folder as the html page displaying it. This means it writes the url in for you, so if they visit your page with, it will automatically look for the image at, and if you put it will look there.

"cool/hey.gif" tells it to look for the picture hey.gif in a subdirectory of the folder the HTML page is in called cool.
"../hey.gif" tells it to look in "one level up" of folders. IE, if you are in the Sub directory cool, ../ will take you back to the home directory, as it is the next highest level.

So as you can see there are various uses for using relative paths. It means if you need to change the domain to your site, or anything like that, you don't have to make any physical changes of links on the page. It also means you can test your site at both and, where as absolute path will simply make the links on both of them lead to the former, so you can't really test it on the freepgs link if you need to.

You can host downloadable talkshows, but you can't stream it off the server like you would  from your home computer.

You need to chmod the file causing the problem so its writable (eg 777). Its not the actual function thats the problem, its freepgs has changed the default chmod permissions of new files so you need to manaully make the necessary files writable.
