  1. ginerjm's post in Notice: Undefined offset: , CSV Fileupload PHP was marked as the answer   
    Your query is trying to insert 5 values into 4 columns.
  2. ginerjm's post in cron jobs was marked as the answer   
    The original idea was to have my php script do this thing.  I have no access to do windows things on my host's server which is probably not a windows one.  Anyway - I think we've beat this topic to death.
  3. ginerjm's post in Using <select><option>?</option></select> to display text. was marked as the answer   
    Try this instead
    $select_tag = "<select onchange='reload(this.form)'>"; $select_tag .= "<option>test one</option>"; foreach ($data as $output) { $select_tag .= "<option>" . $output['header'] . "</option>"; } $select_tag .= "</select>"; Now - in your html area simply place the $select_tag var where you want this html to show up.
  4. ginerjm's post in unlink first, then file_put_contents() is behaving weird was marked as the answer   
    Have you done a search of your script for another call to unlink?
  5. ginerjm's post in Displaying Data to Specific User was marked as the answer   
    That would be "an extra column".
    Now you need to revert this query back to a prepared one so you avoid un-filtered input being used.
  6. ginerjm's post in md5 sum help was marked as the answer   
    There's probably more elegant ways but I would do a strpos on the string looking for a space.
    Then I would grab the beginning part up to that position for the hash and then grab the part after that position for the filename.
    Do a trim on each to get rid of any other chars.

    $pos = strpos($string,' '); $value = trim(substr($string,0,$pos)); $filename = trim(substr($string,$pos));
  7. ginerjm's post in Token Authentication - Cookie question was marked as the answer   
    You simply create a cookie FROM THE SERVER in the script that authenticates the access. Then wherever you need to check for a proper signon, in each script you simply check for the existence of that cookie. You can also store (perhaps) a value or two in the cookie if you need to know something about the user. DO NOT STORE any sensitive info in the cookie
  8. ginerjm's post in Scope of calling exit was marked as the answer   
    Placing the exit() call following the function DOES make it as "readable as possible". Imagine you are looking at someone else's code where you see a call to a function and nothing after it and you wonder where the code is supposed to go next....
  9. ginerjm's post in Left joins not being implemented correctly? was marked as the answer   
    Use different result names for your two different results. If you assign the name to both "opt_value"s, it's not going to look good coming out.
    Ie, Tbla.opt_value as Opt_a, Tblb.opt_value as Opt_b
    I didn't notice this in the code I myself posted for you.
  10. ginerjm's post in Get "true" from multiple "if" was marked as the answer   
    You should do a little reading on the use of the if/else statement. Any php reference can help you understand how they are used. Especially the official PHP manual at php.net
  11. ginerjm's post in rearrange info copied and change data pulled was marked as the answer   
    Step 1 - change the line that has $emp['city_name'] to something that has your group price value :  $emp['group_price'] .  I used 'group_price' since I don't know what you actual "group price" field is called.
    As for the rest of the code you posted - why?
    As for the whole thing in general - I can understand why the author is un-reachable.  Hope you didn't pay too much.
  12. ginerjm's post in Checking for available rows while navigating to next or previous element in the database was marked as the answer   
    If your row count is 0 then don't create the anchor tag.
  13. ginerjm's post in Form Issue was marked as the answer   
    Try using an input element for your submit instead of the button one.
  14. ginerjm's post in PHP script, selecting and inserting into mysql without duplicates was marked as the answer   
    Doing queries inside of loops is definitely to be avoided.  Your situation does not necessitate breaking the rules here.
    If you modify the structure of your prod. server's table to eliminate the AI setting on the PK, then you can simply do the query I suggested earlier since the keys from the phone server data will not conflict with the production server's db structure.  
    Get your Sql query writer to write your queries for you.
    1 - Either keep track of (somehow) the id that was last added to your prod server.  That or do a query on it to get the max value of id there.
    2 - Write a query to insert into the prod server using the sub-query results that a query against the phone server where id > the last id inserted into the prod server (from #1)
    That's all there is.
    // first get the last id on the prod table $q1 = "select max(SESSIONID) as last_id from proddb.tablename"; $q1_ans = $pdo->query($q1); if (!$q1_ans) {     echo "Could not get last inserted id from proddb";     exit(); } $row = $q1_ans->fetch(); $last_id = $row[0];   //  now do the insert query $q2 = "INSERT into proddb.tablename (specify every column name in the order of the phone server's table structure here)                 SELECT *  FROM phonedb.tablename                   WHERE phonedb.SESSIONID > $last_id"; $q2_ans = $pdo->query($q2); if (!$q2_ans)     echo "Could not do insert query"; else    echo "Insert query ran successfully";  
    Note:  not exactly sure about the syntax of the #2 query.  You may have to specify all of the phone server fidnames in the sub-query instead of the *.
    Plus - I have never done queries that access separate servers before.  Don't know how that is done but this is how it would work if using separate dbs on a single server.  There may have to be some research into that.  If it can't be done, then you could output the results of a query on the phone server to a table and use it in your #2 query after getting it to the prod server.
  15. ginerjm's post in Piped email suddenly not working was marked as the answer   
    Well, while waiting for some input on this, I backed off all my edits on one of my 'offending' scripts and the problem went away.  I have no idea what line(s) was/were the culprit.  If anyone does have a good idea of what I may have done (hah!) I'd appreciate hearing about it.  But - if you don't have a sure answer, then don't waste your time on my now-resolved problem.
  16. ginerjm's post in 'Guess a number' - Help with hidden fields and arrays was marked as the answer   
    When you say it doesn't work, how do you know?  Are you getting error messages?  Is php error checking turned on (see my signature)? 
  17. ginerjm's post in special trim ? was marked as the answer   
    While looping thru the number lists I was not properly recognizing the results.  I was looking for a False result to indicate an error/bad value when I should have just checked the "corrected" value and replaced the original/bad one with it.
    Now that I am doing that my process works.
    Thanks for your interest!
  18. ginerjm's post in Warning: mysqli_stmt_execute() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli_stmt, boolean given in ... on line 42 was marked as the answer   
    The prepare will fail if the query is not formed properly.  Any invalid column names, any missing parms ie, a mismatch in the number of values and fields.  It's up to you to debug it.  Remember that you cannot use a parm for the table name.
  19. ginerjm's post in Implode array not working was marked as the answer   
    From another reader - properly stored data is never saved as an array.  If you read up on RDBMS or 'relational databases' you will learn about how data should be stored.
    In this case you will need to create a separate table that will have a key field related to the primary record (wherever you were planning on storing this array) and a field to store one item from this proposed array.  This will create multiple records in the new table with all of the elements you wish to save.  This may seem  an odd way when one is so enamored with the array concept, but in the long run you will see the reasons.  Of course no you have to understand how to do joins when you write a query, but that will come easily when you begin to read up on that!
  20. ginerjm's post in Off topic but.... was marked as the answer   
    Hooray!! It seems that this problem has been resolved. Today I saw the 'black box' ads once again but they are different. They not have a single little icon in the right corner and now say 'Adchoices' like most of the time ads show. And they don't grab focus from other open windows.
  21. ginerjm's post in PHP looping issue was marked as the answer   
    Have you attempted to do any reading/learning of php so that you might glean some knowledge of your own?
    This is how it s/b written.

    $select_var = "<select name='size' id='size'>"; while ($lrow = mssqlfetchassoc($tres)) {    if ($row['tsdescription'] == $info['size'])        $selected = 'selected';    else        $selected = '';   $select_var .= "<option value='" . $lrow['ts_id'] . "'  $selected>" .  $row['description'] ."</option>"; } $select_var .= "</select>";

    Always try and stay in php mode until you finally output your entire html doc.  Here you build the necessary dropdown into a var.  Down lower in your script where you assemble the bulk of you static and dynamic html, insert this var where it needs to be and your page will display it properly.  Don't keep spitting out pieces of html and then doing some php and then spit out some html.  It's confusing and hard to follow and even harder to maintain later on.
  22. ginerjm's post in SQLSTATE[HY093]: Invalid parameter number: parameter was not defined was marked as the answer   
    The message says you have a discrepancy in the parameters you setup for your query. Take a look at it again. It's pretty simple.
  23. ginerjm's post in IMAP functions was marked as the answer   
    Problem solved. Found some new material and after a bit more experimenting got it all working.
    For those interested:
    To make an ssl connection using IMAP with no 'real' certificate use this:

    $host = "{domain.net:993/ssl/novalidate-cert}INBOX"; $mailbox = imap_open($host, $emailaddr, $emlaccess);
    I was using this in a script that was handling forwarded emails on STDIN so the following got me the current message #

    $imap_obj = imap_check($mailbox); $msg_cnt = $imap_obj->Nmsgs; // get last msg no. that we just processed
    With the messge number I could then move the message out of the inbox to a specific destination folder that
    I wanted to archive these emails in:

    Note that my dest folder had to be named as follows:
    rather than how some parts of the manual said it had to be formatted.
    Last but not least and as the manual did tell me, when you do a move like this the original message still sits in the inbox. You have to turn on the flag in the imap_close function to cause this message to be removed once the inbox is closed

    Note the value is a Constant and needs no quotes.
    This all had to be done as IMAP since one cannot do folder moves using POP3 apparently.
