  1. Hi, with reference to chapter 10 and 16 of Mr. Larry's book "PHP 6 AND MYSQL 5 FOR DYNAMIC WEBSITES visual quickpro guide" low price edition, please i'll like to receive help from this forum too as well as to configure Xampp in order to be able to send mails. Please i'll be ever grateful if i can receive help from here. i have gone through various links and videos but to no avail did I succeed I as well watched this video on youtube inorder to configure mercury to send mails but still didn't succeed. Thank you.
  2. In case you need to have both C++/Magick++ and Imagick on your PC (localhost), after much trial and error I found, with thanks to those who posted the guidances and data following, how to install it correctly. My environment is Windows 10 with the latest 64bit XAMPP from: https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html I installed XAMPP/PHP version 7.3.7. My development environment in this case is Visual Studio 2019 and Dreamweaver CS6. The primary guidance is from: https://herbmiller.me/installing-imagick-php-7/ with many thanks to this gentleman. But if you follow this exactly you will not have C++/Magick++ available. Regarding compatible Imagick dlls and ImageMagick versions, see also: https://mlocati.github.io/articles/php-windows-imagick.html with thanks to Michele. But again, the ImageMagick zips will not give you the C++/Magick++ headers or sub-directories. For that you need to do the ImageMagick install from an exe and you can get this from: https://ftp.icm.edu.pl/packages/ImageMagick/binaries/ with many thanks to that institution. You need to select the C and C++ headers option as well as the legacy option during the installation. You need to be extremely careful to install the correct/compatible versions in all cases as advised in Herb Miller's post. By following this guidance exactly I managed to get one installation of ImageMagick with the PHP/Imagick and Magick++ functionality available. Cheers
  3. The Xampp Control Panel is not in the Windows 10 start menu. There also is no shortcut on my windows screen. It only came up on first download.
  4. Hi, I recently posted a question here but have not heard anything back. Is anyone still moderating this forum? (if you click my name you'll find my post). Just bought this book and could use help from time to time. Thanks, Chris
  5. I installed everything from appendix A and tried everything people say but after i ran Apache, MySQL, Mercury, I went to chrome and type http://localhost:802/ (802 cus port 80 is used) and it give me this error " This site can’t be reachedlocalhost refused to connect. Search Google for localhost 802 ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED " please help thank you!
  6. Dear Larry and friends, Hi there! I hope everyone is well. Please kindly note that I just downloaded XAMPP so that I can work on a video tutorial plus revisit Larry's PHP book series, and I've come across the information that XAMPP won't work due to a blocked port. The Skype function that is blocking the port is invaluable to me as I podcast, so I'm not sure how to change the port for the XAMPP. Please, some kind soul, let me know how to change the port that XAMPP is associated with or find some other solution for getting XAMPP to work. I don't want to mess around with the Skype occupancy of the Port at present. Here is the error message I get when trying to start XAMPP: Apache WILL NOt start without the configured ports free! You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port Attempting to start Apach app... Status change detected: running Status change detected: stopped Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly. This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method. Press the Logs button to view error logs and check the Windows Event Viewer for more clues.
  7. 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
  8. Hello. I'm working through the most excellent The Yii Book. The app I'm working on is named myApp. For development I use XAMPP on my mac and the htdocs directory contains various projects (in various states of disarray and madness), so the structure is something like: XAMPP ->xampfiles ->htdocs -myApp (the Yii Book) -anotherApp -someWordpressThing -EdwardPlaysTennis I followed the setup instructions in The Yii Book and moved the "protected" & "framework" folders outside of my htdocs folder. Something seems not so right about that as now the model, view & controller and other folders associated with myApp are in the "protected" folder - external to myApp. At some point, I figure I will develop another Yii application on my machine. I can't have two "protected" folders in the same folder. Did I do something boneheaded (wouldn't be the first time) or does one rename the "protected" folder while developing another Yii app? Why doesn't one keep all of the associated folders inside of that App's space? Thanks for the info. Rock on.
  9. I am just starting and have "successfully" downloaded XAMPP using the instructions from Appendix A. I am having a challenge starting Apache from the Conrol Panel. The following screen shot offers clues ... http://webskillswork.com/images/apache_xampp.png My read on the problem I need to solve ... Port 80 in use by "system"! Any and all advice as to how to resolve this conflict is appreciated. Thanks!
  10. Windows 7 SP1 2GB RAM I followed the installation instructions in the bonus appendix to the book for XAMPP and installed the programs, scripts, etc on a new partition in the folder H:\XAMPP. When I open the XAMPP Control Panel I get the following message: XAMPP Component Status Check failure [-2] Current directory H:\xampp Run this program from your XAMPP root directory. I have checked the source of the file that runs the Control Panel and it is H:\XAMPP\xampp-control.exe which is in the root of the XAMPP directory. The XAMPP Control Panel shows the following status: (tick) Scv Apache Running (tick) Scv MySql Running (no tick) Scv FileZilla (not running) (no tick) Scv Mercury (not running) When I open XAMPP in my browser the Welcome page says "Congratuation you have successfully installed XAMPP on this system and the Status page shows: MySQL database ACTIVATED PHP ACTIVATED Common Gateway Interface (CGI) ACTIVATED Server Side Includes (SSI) ACTIVATED SMTP Service DEACTIVATED FTP Service DEACTIVATED FTP Service DEACTIVATED What is the problem with the installation that causes the error message? One further problem, when I try to stop either the Apache or MySQL service in the Control Panel I get another error message which states: This program must be run from the XAMPP root directory. Busy.... ERROR: -1
  11. Hi Larry I have been using your book for some time now (I was a poster about 3 years ago on this forum) and have to say that it still amazes me what a comprehensive and well written publication it is. I wish you would write a javascript tome in the same manner. The question is that I have installed php and MySQL onto the D: drive of my XP Home laptop using XAMPP from www.apachefriends.org and it now appears to run well according to the XAMPP Control Panel showing Apache and MySQL "Running" but when I run a php program using Firefox it appears that php is not actually running. The browser displays the html part of the php program and looking at the Firefox source code, one can see the php code. This software works perfectly on the 1and1 server. Am I missing something?
