Re: PHP fault on free web space.

My apology, On reviewing the code associated with the PHP call I realised that in updating the code to be transportable I had omitted some key notation, i.e. ../ in the call to the PHP code. I still have unresolved issues with my implementation of this code but can declare that the query re server P...

Re: Forum Logi Log off

Ahh, There is a Log off button, there just isn't any text label displayed for each of the drop down functions. Is this a deliberate omission?

Forum Logi Log off

The "log off" button presumably under your log in name next to "Private messages" does not show a log off button on the drop down it is blank. So how do you log off?

The Exetel free web host no longer supports embedded PHP routines on my web pages. In particular a slide show routine. When selected a new tab opens with the following message: "Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request...

Hi Thy_Zombie, I realise your post was several years ago but, I have the same problem after New Year 2017. I have used eXeSMS on both Ubuntu and Win 10 platforms (3 separate systems).

ADSL Low Speeds

For several months I experienced low speeds "drop outs", "server not found", "gateway reset". It took more than 11 hours to upgrade from Win7 to Win10 not including the 2.5Gb files previously downloaded. It caused problems with antivirus updates and system updates. My remedy over that time was to po...

Re: Email with Attachment not downloading.

Hi Dazzled, Thanks for looking at my problem. I see what your saying, when I examined a successful attachment down load from another source it does have a file name in that place. What is strange is that I could get it from the server by Forwarding it to another of my TB email account. Also what (TB...

Re: Webtrees Genealogy Data Base

Yes it does do a query but that is after you have set up the data base and uploaded the files. Probably quickest way to find out. If the query returns an unsatisfactory result you have to delete the files. There could be a simple script somewhere. My php ref. is 3.3 and that function list out of dat...
