    Retrieving Files of Suspended Account?

    My account was suspended due to inactivity, and because of the backend upgrades I've been unable to re-create my account for about two months. I've switched to a different host so I could have my website back up and running, but as a result of all this I've lost the content for my blog. I was...

    I have been unable to access my website today, or When trying, I get the following page: And no matter how many times I pass the Captcha, I get sent back to this. I've tried with my laptop and my Android smartphone. It seems specifically tied to the...

    BOINC on Free Hosting?

    For a school project, I'm dabbling with BOINC for a project. Would BOINC be an unfair use of my free hosting account? My main worry is that it could transmit files and folders that are over a gigabyte in size, and that might brush up against the limits for a free account.

    Can't Create New Database but I'm Not at Maximum!

    I currently have two databases (and according to PHPMyAdmin, a third one called information_schema). When I look at my cPanel, it says I have two databases, and that I can have up to four. When I use MySQL Database Wizard to create a new database, it invariably fails. I'm told there was an...

    Mind Boggling PDO Query Failure

    I have set up a basic "guestbook" script. It uses a table named guestbook and currently has two rows in it. Using the mysql_* commands I can successfully access the table and display the information as desired. However, I'm trying to look into PDO and currently am attempting to convert the code...

    JavaScript Animated Tabs

    I'm experimenting with a new design for my site. I'm using jQuery UI and have a simple tab setup in place. <div id="tabs"> <ul> <li><a href="#tabs-1">Foo</a></li> <li><a href="#tabs-2">Bar</a></li> <li><a href="#tabs-3">Baz</a></li> <li><a href="#tabs-4">Blah</a></li>...

    Bigint Not Updating to Current Timestamp

    I'm toying around with PHP and MySQL. A piece of code I have is intended to fetch the current Unix timestamp and update a BIGINT with that value. Problem is, the BIGINT won't update unless there's some echo, var_dump, or other similar statement. Is there something I'm not doing right? (Yes I...

    Wiki Slow/Unavailable

    My personal wiki at (snipped for privacy) (if this is made a public thread, please remove the URL if possible) has a history of being slow or even unreachable. It's not uncommon for it to be slow to process whenever I go to a page or make an edit. On my Samsung mobile phone running Opera Mini, I...

    Persistent 500 Error, et. al., on Personal Wiki

    About 12 hours ago, I installed MediaWiki from Softaculous (probably misspelled that). Since then I've been able to make several pages. However I've noticed that about a third to a half of the time, when I click on any link I receive a 500 error, which requires me to go back and click on the...

    Infinite Disk Space?

    My cPanel tells me I have infinite disk space. And the pie chart where I can log into cPanel or webmail reads Used: 3 Mb Total: -3 Mb. I don't know if this was intentional or accidental, as I haven't seen any posts on the forum about such a change. Thank you!

    MySQL Server for mysql_connect()

    What would be the name of the MySQL server for this command? I'm on Boru, if that helps anyone. Would it be and then the number that comes after that, as it appears in the URL bar? Or would it be, since 3306 is the port for MySQL...

    <?xml> for XHTML Prevents PHP Code from Running

    When it comes to standards, I like to comply. As such, when I make an XHTML document, I begin it with this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> However, this creates a problem. Whenever I try to put PHP code using <?php ... ?> the site will give me an error about the PHP parser on line...

    PHP: time_sleep_until()

    (Grrr I despise PHP's use of the underscore. I so prefer it to be timeSleepUntil() like how they're set up in my native script, JavaScript.) Say I have this code: <html> <head> <title>time_sleep_until</title> </head> <body> <?php echo "Loaded"; time_sleep_until(time()+1); echo "1...

    Hello everyone, as my username gives away, my name is Shawn. I switched over here from a very not-so-good free host callled [name here]. They gave me lots of issues and although I got through them all, the straw that broke the camel's back was when they allowed CPALead to block people from...
