  • Database Backup

    Database Backup


    對於“電子商務”系統的持續運作,均依賴可靠而穩定的“資料庫”記錄所有的資料,而每當頁面的取存、顧客的各種動作、以及管理員的日常維護,都會改動“資料庫”中相關的資料表。

    由於“資料庫”的內容隨著各種的“讀”、“寫”、“比較”、“搜查”,都會不停地改變,所以備份的工作將顯得十分重要。

    我們的系統已經內置每天備份“資料庫”的功能,管理員一般無需刻意處理,但是備份點只會在每日指定時間,由系統自動執行,所以只會備份執行當時之前的資料,而未到下次的備份之間將存在一些不可預知的風險。

    所以我們建議管理員每次進行商店的維護或較大規模的增減資料工作前,以手動方式進行備份及下載備份檔,可確保維護出錯時前得到修復的機會。

    “資料庫”的備份,只針對文字及數值的資料,任何檔案、圖片、以及客戶上載的檔案將不會在此得到備份。

    其他如系統檔案等,備份的工作將由伺服器在例行備份時處理,但這些備份檔我們不會提供給客戶下載保留服務。

    進入“資料庫備分”管理:
    1. 點擊主選單的“系統工具”

    2. 點擊左選單的“資料庫備分”

    3. 選用主螢幕的合適功能

    針對“資料庫備份”:
    1. 點擊主螢幕的“備份”按鈕

    2. 選擇是否備份後下載檔案,如只儲存在伺服器端,將會佔據儲存空間

    3. 如資料龐大,備份時間將會稍長,請耐心等候,備份未完成前切勿處理其他維護工作

    針對“資料庫回存”:
    1. 點擊主螢幕的“回存”按鈕

    2. 上載在您電腦內的備份檔案

    3. 或選擇伺服器端的備份檔案後,點擊“回復資料庫”

    4. 如資料龐大,回存時間將會稍長,請耐心等候,回存未完成前切勿處理其他維護工作

    針對伺服器端“備份檔案”的動作:
    • 回復資料庫
      選擇合適的伺服器端檔案進行回復

    • 刪除
      將伺服器端檔案刪除

    注意事項:
    • 在已知的問題中,龐大的資料庫可能無法順利進行“備份”或“回存”,若在必須的情況下,請通知我們為您處理

    • 下載後的“備份檔”應保留完整狀態,不應修改或增減內容,否則無法進行回存

Glossary

  • 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).

  • JPG (File Interchange Format)

    JPG (File Interchange Format)


    JPEG is a commonly used standard method of compression for photographic images. The name JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the name of the committee who created the standard. The group was organized in 1986, issuing a standard in 1992 which was approved in 1994 as ISO 10918-1. JPEG should not be confused with MPEG, the Moving Picture Experts Group, which produces compression schemes for motion pictures.

    JPEG provides for lossy compression of images (although there are variations on the standard baseline JPEG which are lossless). The file format which employs this compression is commonly also called JPEG; the most common file extension for this format is .jpg, though .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif and .jif are also used.

    JPEG itself specifies both the codec defining how an image is transformed into a stream of bytes, and the file format used to contain that stream. The file format is known as 'JPEG Interchange Format' (Often confused with the JPEG File Interchange Format), and is specified in Annex B of the standard. It is possible for JPEG data to be embedded in other file types, such as TIFF format images.

    JPEG/JFIF is the format most used for storing and transmitting photographs on the World Wide Web. For this application, it is preferred to formats such as GIF, which has a limit of 256 distinct colors that is insufficient for color photographs, and PNG, which produces much larger image files for this type of image. The compression algorithm is not as well suited for line drawings and other textual or iconic graphics, and thus the PNG and GIF formats are preferred for these types of images.

    The MIME media type for JPEG is image/jpeg (defined in RFC 1341).

  • C2C (Consumer-to-Consumer)

    C2C (Consumer-to-Consumer)


    C2C (Consumer-to-consumer) electronic commerce involves the electronically-facilitated transactions between consumers through some third party. A common example is the Ads28.com, EBay, Yahoo!, in which a consumer posts an item for sale and other consumers bid to purchase it; the third party generally charges a flat fee or commission. The sites are only intermediaries, just there to match consumers, they have do not check quality of product being offered.

  • e-Commerce

    e-Commerce


    Electronic Commerce is exactly analogous to a marketplace on the Internet.

    Electronic Commerce (also referred to as EC, e-commerce eCommerce or ecommerce) consists primarily of the distributing, buying, selling, marketing and servicing of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks.

    The information technology industry might see it as an electronic business application aimed at commercial transactions; in this context, it can involve electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, e-marketing, online marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), automated inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Electronic commerce typically uses electronic communications technology of the World Wide Web, at some point in the transaction's lifecycle, although of course electronic commerce frequently depends on computer technologies other than the World Wide Web, such as databases, and e-mail, and on other non-computer technologies, such as transportation for physical goods sold via e-commerce.

  • Internet Protocol

    Internet Protocol


    Internet Protocol (IP) is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol standard (IP)—in simpler terms, a computer address. Any participating network device—including routers, computers, time-servers, printers, Internet fax machines, and some telephones—can have their own unique address.

    An IP address can also be thought of as the equivalent of a street address or a phone number (compare: VoIP (voice over (the) internet protocol)) for a computer or other network device on the Internet. Just as each street address and phone number uniquely identifies a building or telephone, an IP address can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on a network.

    IP addresses can appear to be shared by multiple client devices either because they are part of a shared hosting web server environment or because a proxy server (e.g., an ISP or anonymizer service) acts as an intermediary agent on behalf of its customers, in which case the real originating IP addresses might be hidden from the server receiving a request. The analogy to telephone systems would be the use of predial numbers (proxy) and extensions (shared).

    IP addresses are managed and created by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The IANA generally allocates super-blocks to Regional Internet Registries, who in turn allocate smaller blocks to Internet service providers and enterprises.

  • 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.

  • Twitter

    Twitter


    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

    Since its creation in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Twitter has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as the "SMS of the Internet", as it provides the functionality—via its application programming interface (API)—for other desktop and web-based applications to send and receive short text messages, often obscuring the Twitter service itself.

  • Setup fetch email using Google Gmail

    Setup fetch email using Google Gmail


    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 instructions below provide steps on how to fetch mail from our server so you can access them via Google Mail.

    Google Mail Fetcher is easy to set up and free to use. It uses POP3 to pull all the contents of an email box into Gmail and then parses the emails for spam. Mail Fetcher can download messages from up to five other email accounts, allowing you to centralize all your email in Gmail.

    Once Mail Fetcher is set up, Google will check those accounts on a regular basis, and new mail will appear automatically in Gmail.

    • Log into your Gmail account.
    • Click the gear icon in the upper right corner of the page and select Settings.
    • Click the Settings and Accounts and Import tab and locate the Check mail from other accounts (using POP3) section.
    • Click Add a POP3 mail account you own. (Note: Google does not allow the use of self-signed SSL certificates, including our shared SSL certificates.)
    • Enter the full email address of the account from which you'd like mail fetched.

    • Click Next Step.
    • In the Username field, enter your full email address.
    • In the Password field, enter the password for the email address you provided.
    • Select Port 110 for a POP3 connection.
