  1. Thanks, HartleySan . I will definitely report back regularly as I work on that project. This in addition to my regular participation.
  2. Everyone, This is a practicum for me. I can use all the concepts (and much of the code) in this book. It will generally make me a better programmer; and I'll end up with a template I can actually use for myself and clients. This thing is neither "aggressive" or overly ambitious because I'm staying focused on what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. I have to stay curious, disciplined, and reasonable. Antonio, Yours is sage advice. Your contribution was meaningful and I appreciate it. It's easy to get so caught up in the "subjective" that we miss the "objective". I agree that the sober
  3. Hello Everyone, I'm currently using WordPress. Eventually, I want to code my own blog from scratch. I don't need to do this "tomorrow", either. But I do want to get away from WordPress (I have my reasons); and I don't want to use a framework ( I have good reasons for this, too). I plan to have this done by June 2014, and I will begin on February 5. I will also post my progress and questions here. For the next two weeks, I will gather my requirements. What features should I include in my blog? More clearly, what features MUST I have? What features would be NICE to have? I know it's
  4. Rock/Larry, I'm dealing with something similar. I am sold on Effortless E-Commerce with PHP and MySQL. But, I am developing a WordPress site. I'm considering the following solution: put the WordPress site on the main domain (www.maindomain.com) and use a subdomain or subdirectory for the store (www.store.maindomain.com). Any thoughts?

  5. You're more than welcome, Larry. I think you're a gift to the industry. So, I'm thankful for the gift. But I'm also grateful for the sacrifice. The former sentiment is just etiquette. The latter expression is plain sensibility. I'll be hanging around a lot more.
  6. Hello Everyone, Below is a tutorial on how to enable Configuration Storage in PHPMyAdmin. XAMPP does it by default. But if you install MAMP—or if you install PMA as an individual component—Configuration Storage (and several other advanced features) are NOT enabled. However, I don't know if the same is true with LAMP or WAMP. Anyhow, you can view the tutorial at David Powers' website http://foundationphp.com/tutorials/pma_config.php. Best, Roland
  7. Hi Larry, Thanks for the response. And I apoligize for my own late response. Post holiday has been very hectic for me. Yes, PMA is a convenience. And soon I will be using the command line, only because of the discipline it requires and the granular control it offers. To that end, I am studing UNIX/Linux and their commands so I can use the Mac Terminal more efficiently to communicate with MySQL at the command line. For now, I have to learn PMA just because it's smart to do so. Anyhow, I should have been more clear in my original post. My issue dealt with (generally) enabling adv
  8. Hello, I am using PMA Version 4.1.3. I created a datbase named "cars". I tried to create a table on that database, but noticed that there were three missing columns/directives. They are the following: MIME Types Browser Transformation Transformation Options Without these, I can only scroll horizontally as far as "A_I Comments". I understand so far that I have to create some additional table (phpmyadmin, maybe?) in order to enable these and other advanced features. But if that's the answer, I don't know how to do that. And the information on the web is rather unclear. I
  9. Hi All, I updated the PHP installed with Mac OSX Mavericks (10.9). The installed version was some flavor of 5.4, I believe. The updated version is 5.5.6. I wanted to turn off output buffering to instruct myself on what happens when it is off and when it is on. I tried to change output buffering like so (these are the grouped directives as given, with the fifth line as my own addition): ; output_buffering ; Default Value: Off ; Development Value: 4096 ; Production Value: 4096 output_buffering = Off I saved the directive, quit the terminal, and restarted Apache (almost
