Zend path not found in NuSphere PhpED debugger on Windows XP Xampp

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

If you add to the PATH but it doesn’t take you can add the path items manually in index.php:

ini_set('include_path', ini_get('include_path'). ';C:\Zend\library;');

Joomla JEvents Won’t Show All Events

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

The menu item specifying the calendar component limits the categories displayed by that menu. If event categories are created after the menu is created those event categories won’t display until you update the menu to specify the new categories.

  • Each domain name is a Cloud site.
  • Each IP number is the same site as the domain name version but on a different host.
  • The 208.85.243.55 is slightly smaller because there’s one extra text-only module published on the home page of the Cloud based version
  • The timings were random based on how long it took me to tab format the results before moving onto the next test
  • 6:20pm #1 is a reminder of the “ah c’mon not 8 seconds” conversation from yesterday.
  • Out of 5 randomly-timed requests, one was 14 seconds.
  • I’ve had customers routinely report multi-second and multi-minute web site hangs.
  • In order to meet the terms of the bait and switch SLA (bait: marketing, switch: the burger king wrapper that is your cloud waranty), a web site hang doesn’t happen unless you are1) around to notice it
    2) not so busy that putting in a ticket doesn’t seem like a giant waste of time

    Since these two conditions are extremely unlikely to happen the SLA will never come out in your favor.

  • When you can guilt an associate into seeing your point of view, instead of a refund you get MORE MONTHS OF THIS crap added to your account.In that spirit, I’m running a contest.First prize will be one month hosting on the cloud.Second prize is 4 months hosting and the third prize is an entire year.

JoomlaPack Joomla Site Restore When Files are Too Large

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

The database sql file in a JoomlaPack JPA file is stored in installation/sql/joomla.sql.

The correct specs to upload large files into the Joomla LMS file library is .htaccess:
php_value upload_max_filesize 100M
php_value post_max_size 100M
php_value memory_limit 2048M
php_value max_execution_time 120

I gigantic Joomla sql file (205 MB) is possibly 135 MB jos_session. Don’t backup jos_session, or, edit it out using Jujusoft JuJuEdit, or split the sql file into pieces using splitter.exe, then piece back the pieces you do want.
