  1. Wondering Soul added a post in a topic Apache under Mac OSX Lion   

    Managed to get this fixed!

    After I replaced the httpd.conf file with the default one, everything started to work again, I just had the problems with files and directories that I mentioned above. I had forgotten that I also changed my user specific configuration file /etc/apache2/users/name.conf. I had the wrong RewriteBase value in here and that's what was causing all the 404's.

    Just seems a little bit weird that the first time I needed htaccess support, it wouldn't work out-of-the-box. Yet when I make the necessary file edits, it breaks, and when I put it back to the same default configuration it was on, it works? Unless the configuration file in /etc/apache2/original/ was different than the one OSX comes with..

    Thanks for your help as always!

    Ok I have just saved the current, edited httpd.conf file to my Desktop and replaced it with the default one out of the 'original' folder inside the apache2 folder. I haven't changed anything inside this file and now mod_rewrite works. Kinda.

    It is now routing what it should be to my PHP script, but doesn't seem to be working entirely as I was expecting. I'm using this widely used .htaccess rewrite snippet to route the URL path through to my project:



    RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /~Matt/my_project/ DirectoryIndex index.php RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?route=$1 [L,QSA]
    However instead of this directive only sending any file or directory that doesn't physically exist through to index.php, it is sending everything. Even real file paths..

    Apache under Mac OSX Lion
    Hi,

    I've had to start using the pre-installed Apache/PHP services that come with OSX, mainly because ever since I upgraded to Lion, MAMP doesn't work for me regardless of the fact they say its fixed for Lion. I downloaded and installed MySQL (as it doesn't come with that) and got all three working together fine, also installed phpMyAdmin.

    Things were going great until I needed to use .htaccess. First of all I tried including a .htaccess file in my projects root directory and got an "Internal Server Error" so I went to check the logs only to find mod_rewrite was not enabled/allowed. So I opened /etc/apache2/httpd.conf in terminal using nano and changed the second instance of "AllowOverride None" to "AllowOverride All". Chose the second instance because it was a set of rules for the directory "/Users/~NAME_HERE/Sites/" which is the root web directory. Still nothing after restarting Apache so I went and found /etc/apache2/users/NAME.conf, opened it up and once again, changed "AllowOverride None" to "AllowOverride All". Restarted Apache, now all I get whenever I visit ANY file or directory within ANY folder inside the "Sites" folder, I get 404 Not Found. I have reversed all the changes I made and restarted everything and still now get this error.

    Does anyone know of how to actually enable mod_rewrite on OSX Lion? I've tried almost everything on the first two pages of Google and nothing has worked on Lion.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you would like this type of capability, might I suggest Wordpress MU. It does this very well. There are however some requirements of your server. For example, you need to be able to add a wildcard DNS setting to allow any sub-domain to work, you then also need to be able to edit your websites vhost file.

    If you don't have access to server configuration, its probably not the best way to go.

    Which is fair enough and I do agree. However, you could surely guess that at some point, shutting down these websites instantly will not be enough for them. They will want to prosecute heavy users of such websites. Which then means the co-operation of ISPs informing the appropriate authorities when a customer has been visiting one of these websites. It just goes on and on and broadband customers will end up having every action they take on the Internet being logged and storred.

    I was surprised recently to see that web giant YouTube won their case against Viacom. Although as I was following the case, I was intrigued by some of the developments. I have to say that I agree with the way YouTube has to handle infringement notices. I don't think it should ever be up to a governing body to make the decision to remove any offending content. It should be the sole responsibility of the copyright holder. The correct procedure should be followed and the authorities involved if required. There aren't many hosts who will ignore a DMCA notice. Each situation should be handled individually. Penalising an entire community for the actions of the minority is ridiculous.

    The day the U.S Government ceased those domains with no prior notice, will definitely go down in the books as one of the worst days in the history of the Internet. Makes me wonder how long it will be before popular search engines start "disappearing" or the compulsory introduction of keyword filtering.

    Privacy on the Internet is slowly disappearing. Whether it be at the hands of a server administrator or your ISP. It's not that I'm condoning this type of behaviour on the Internet, it's just the processes that will be introduced in order to catch the people in question, will end up putting the data of others' at risk.

    As for IPBFree, I had a community board there back in 2006. Only took about 3 weeks of using the site before I decided to switch to a hosted community here at IPS. Another year and I moved to an external server and got an IP.Board license. I loved it and my members loved it. Definitely feel sorry for the people with large communities that lost everything. It takes a lot of work to make a decent community!

    They're closed today. So no phone support and tickets will probably take a while to be resolved. Back to normal tomorrow though.

    After a quick search, I think this is what your looking for:

    I believe that it works on 2.3.x as well.

    Glad to finally hear something about this!

    Actually sounds a lot more interesting and feature rich than I thought it was going to be!

    Look forward to getting to use it :D

    PredictAd
    Hey all, I just stumbled across a website called PredictAd and what their main product is, is basically a Javascript drop-down from the search form that shows suggestions based on what you have typed into the search field. At the same time, it gives you an opportunity to to earn some money from their ads system.

    Im just wondering if anyone has used this before or uses it currently? I have an Ajax search drop-down that suggests possible keywords as you type that I came up with myself, but this one appeals to me because its a way to make a little more money from my site.

    Sounds like a great improvement!

    Can't wait to see it in action :D
  13. Wondering Soul added a post in a topic AJAX powered quick-reply?   

    Yes I believe it has been suggested before. In fact, I think there is a modification for it somewhere!
