  • PHPwiki

    PHPwiki


    PhpWiki is a WikiWikiWeb clone in PHP. A WikiWikiWeb is a site where anyone can edit the pages through an HTML form. Multiple storage backends, dynamic hyperlinking, themeable, scriptable by plugins, full authentication, ACL's.

    A WikiWikiWeb is a web site where anyone can edit the pages through an HTML form. Linking is done automatically on the server side; all pages are stored in a database. This may sound rather simplistic, but a Wiki is a very unique way to collaborate on the Web. I set up a few while working at the New York Times on the Web, and the technical staff really took to them in a big way. They wrote 500 pages in just a few months (all to document the internal systems). The addictive quality of a Wiki is that making pages is as simple as making a link to them. If they don't yet exist, the page link will be followed by a hyperlinked question mark; follow that link and you can define the new page. With this setup, you can update and create pages from anywhere there is a web browser handy. Visit the PhpWiki here at Sourceforge. You can try it out yourself! Installation of PhpWiki is as simple as untarring the source distribution. PhpWiki works right out of the box. You will want to make configuration changes later for better performance and permanence, or to run PhpWiki off a relational database like MySQL, mSQL or Postgresql.

  • PHP - How to define magic_quotes_gpc

    PHP - How to define magic_quotes_gpc


    You can Enable / Disable magic_quotes_gpc for php in your account by setting this directive in .htaccess in httpdocs folder:

    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc On

    or

    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off

    The magic_quotes_gpc is a function which automatically escape $_GET, $_POST and $_COOKIE variables. This cause a lot of (poorly written) PHP scripts out there which blindly rely on magic_quotes_gpc, to be wide open to various SQL/XSS-injections.

    If you run a website that relies on magic_quotes_gpc for escaping user input, we strongly recommend that you disable access to such scripts until a version fixing this bug is released.

    By default magic_quotes_gpc was turned off.

    Setup fetch email using Yahoo! Mail


    Why Should I Use Fetch Mail Instead of an Email Forwarder?

    We are committed to improving the stability of services.

    Unfortunately, it is very common for mail forwarding to cause blacklisting with many large email providers. This most commonly occurs when large amounts of mail are forwarded and then marked as spam after it has been received in the end user's inbox. This results in our server's sending reputation being penalized since it was the last server to send the mail. Ultimately, our server will be blacklisted with the email provider and it will affect all of other users on the same server.

    A solution to this is to disabled mail forwarding altogether. change to using mail fetcher, you can access mail in a other system without having the mail routed through that system's server. This way, you can mark a message as spam without it affecting our email server's reputation.

    The following articles explain how to set up mail fetching for other services and are for reference only.

    To login to your webmail use the following url:

    http://webmail.yourdomain.com

    *where yourdomain.com is your domain name.

    The login name is the full email address i.e. you@yoursite.com and the password is the one you setup when you created the email in PLESK.

    Login details are your email address and password you setup in your PLESK control panel or Online E-Store System.
    If you also use an email client like Outlook Express to check your mail and still want to access the mail with Horde, make sure you check the option to leave mail on the server. If you fail to do this, all your mail will be downloaded to your email client and won't be accessable via webmail with Horde. Please be aware though that leaving your emails on the server will increase your used disk space as well.

  • Google 7.68 Terabits Per Second Cable

    Google 7.68 Terabits Per Second Cable


    Search giant finalizes plan for Pacific fiber being ran.

    The recent quakes in Taiwan highlighted a lack of redundancy in the Pacific, where fiber runs have about half the capacity found across the Atlantic. A number of companies are planning to rectify that -- including Verizon, who is working with a number of companies to run an 11,000 mile, five terabits per second (Tbps) cable from the United States (Oregon) directly to mainland China, Taiwan and South Korea.

    Google is also laying Pacific fiber as part of a consortium named Unity, formed alongside six international companies. The coalition is building a 6,200 mile, 7.68Tbps capable fiber run from Los Angeles to Chikura, located off the coast near Tokyo. Google today announced they finalized the deal on the $300 million project. According to the press release Trans-pacific bandwidth demand continues to surge:

    According to the TeleGeography Global Bandwidth Report, 2007, Trans–Pacific bandwidth demand has grown at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 63.7 percent between 2002 and 2007. It is expected to continue to grow strongly from 2008 to 2013, with total demand for capacity doubling roughly every two years. "The Unity cable system allows the members of the consortium to provide the increased capacity needed as more applications and services migrate online, giving users faster and more reliable connectivity," said Unity spokesperson Jayne Stowell.

    It's obviously a nice deal for Google, given the content operator gets access to bandwidth at build cost. NEC Corporation and Tyco Telecommunications will build the fiber run starting immediately, and it should be completed by 2010, assuming that the undersea cable cutting bogeyman leaves them alone.

Glossary

  • Cookie

    Cookie


    The term Cookie derives from "magic cookie", a packet of data a program receives but only uses for sending it again, possibly to its origin, unchanged. Magic cookies were already used in computing when Lou Montulli had the idea of using them in Web communications in Mar 1993.

    Purpose
    HTTP cookies are used by Web servers to differentiate users and to maintain data related to the user during navigation, possibly across multiple visits. HTTP cookies were introduced to provide a way for realizing a "shopping cart" (or "shopping basket"), a virtual device into which the user can "place" items to purchase, so that users can navigate a site where items are shown, adding or removing items from the shopping basket at any time.

    Allowing users to log in to a website is another use of cookies. Users typically log in by inserting their credentials into a login page; cookies allow the server to know that the user is already authenticated, and therefore is allowed to access services or perform operations that are restricted to logged-in users.

    Many websites also use cookies for personalization based on users' preferences. Sites that require authentication often use this feature, although it is also present on sites not requiring authentication. Personalization includes presentation and functionality. For example, the Wikipedia Web site allows authenticated users to choose the webpage skin they like best; the Google search engine allows users (even non-registered ones) to decide how many search results per page they want to see.

    Cookies are also used to track users across a website. Third-party cookies and Web bugs, explained below, also allow for tracking across multiple sites. Tracking within a site is typically done with the aim of producing usage statistics, while tracking across sites is typically used by advertising companies to produce anonymous user profiles, which are then used to target advertising (deciding which advertising image to show) based on the user profile.

    Browser Setting
    Described in " How to Enable Cookie " section.

    Cookie Expiration
    Persistent cookies have been criticized by privacy experts for not being set to expire soon enough, and thereby allowing some websites to track users and build up a profile of them over time. This aspect of cookies also compounds the issue of session hijacking, because a stolen persistent cookie can potentially be used to impersonate a user for a considerable period of time.

    Identification
    If more than one browser is used on a computer, each usually has a separate storage area for cookies. Hence cookies do not identify a person, but a combination of a user account, a computer, and a Web browser. Thus, anyone who uses multiple accounts, computers, or browsers has multiple sets of cookies.

    Likewise, cookies do not differentiate between multiple users who share a computer and browser, if they do not use different user accounts.

  • SPAM

    SPAM


    Spamming is the abuse of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, which are universally undesired. While the most widely recognized form of spam is email spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, mobile phone messaging spam, internet forum spam and junk fax transmissions.

    Spamming is economically viable because advertisers have no operating costs beyond the management of their mailing lists, and it is difficult to hold senders accountable for their mass mailings. Because the barrier to entry is so low, spammers are numerous, and the volume of unsolicited mail has become very high. The costs, such as lost productivity and fraud, are borne by the public and by Internet service providers, which have been forced to add extra capacity to cope with the deluge. Spamming is widely reviled, and has been the subject of legislation in many jurisdictions.

  • SSL

    SSL


    Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols which provide secure communications on the Internet for such things as web browsing, e-mail, Internet faxing, instant messaging and other data transfers. There are slight differences between SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0, but the protocol remains substantially the same. The term "TLS" as used here applies to both protocols unless clarified by context.

  • PNG (Portable Network Graphics)

    PNG (Portable Network Graphics)


    PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a bitmapped image format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve and replace the GIF format, as an image-file format not requiring a patent license.

    PNG is pronounced "ping" , but can be spoken "P-N-G" to avoid confusion with network tool ping. PNG is supported by the libpng reference library (platform-independent), with C functions for handling PNG images.

  • HTML

    HTML


    short for HyperText Markup Language, is the predominant markup language for the creation of web pages. It provides a means to describe the structure of text-based information in a document — by denoting certain text as headings, paragraphs, lists, and so on — and to supplement that text with interactive forms, embedded images, and other objects. HTML is written in the form of labels (known as tags), created by greater-than signs (>) and less-than signs (<). HTML can also describe, to some degree, the appearance and semantics of a document, and can include embedded scripting language code which can affect the behavior of web browsers and other HTML processors.

    HTML is also often used to refer to content of the MIME type text/html or even more broadly as a generic term for HTML whether in its XML-descended form (such as XHTML 1.0 and later) or its form descended directly from SGML (such as HTML 4.01 and earlier).
