I'm still here, figuring out this thing that have been pestering me for 3 days now, the PHP-MySQL connectivity, and there's still hope for me. I tried another installation and/or configuration but it requires you to restart your pc. I think I'll just continue this tomorrow since I just found about this awhile ago. I hope it works.Ü

It's been two days since I started to try to connect to MySQL using PHP. I don't know what seems to be the problem. I have read and followed the installation and configuration for both PHP and MySQL many times but still no progress. I'm starting to get board seeing the same error again and again. For me, it's better to see different errors once in a while when you try something different than to see the same error again. It just says that you're just doing the same thing even when you're not, know what I mean? When could I get pass this problem?!

I continued to fix the problems that I had yesterday. Then came lunch break and I haven't fixed that PHP-MySQL connectivity. After lunch my supervisor asked me to look at this software, teiPublisher, a software designed to validate XML files, convert it to HTML and things like that. It's a bit tricky because its a .jar file but I figured out how to install it. I made it work but couldn't understand how it works. It validated the sample xml file. I tried ko convert it to a html file, it generated an html file but it doesn't have any content. I don't know why but atleast I made it work. :P

I have installed MySQL Server 5.0 this morning. Then problems came up when I tried to connect to it using PHP. I have setup and configured it just like what its said in the installation instructions in http://www.php.net/ and http://www.mysql.com/. It is also recognized by the Apache HTTP Server but I don't know if I have to modify some settings in Apache because it is not mentioned in the installation instructions. I hope I can fix it by tomorrow.

4th Day: I have accomplished something! :DThe Request for Evaluation Copies page is now finished. After hours of uploading the same files again and again, one trial after the other, the page works now. And I said to mysely, what a relief that I have finished that thing. It was kind of complicated for me becuase I'm not used to working PHP, Apache, and SMTP. I am used to JSP and Resin but not PHP and Apache. For SMTP, I didn't dwell to much into it, but that got me thinking for a while. Next assignment is the database for the site. I hope I can still remember all of that concepts, designs and implementation used in databases. Ok, bye for now.Ü It's Sunday tomorrow, no work!Ü

I am ok, I was typing codes and setting up formmail.php until this SMTP thing got in my way. I don't know anything about SMTP. I've heard it before but that's it. After reading some stuff about SMTP, I think we should go and edit online where there is an SMTP Server. I Hope I can fix thing tomorrow.
I'm still debugging the website. I'm still on that formmail.php and I can't find what seems to be the problem. My supervisor said that its working before they changed servers. I think their are some files missing. As you can see, I skipped one day in putting my entry. That's because there is no internet connection the other day. I'm connected to the network but I still can't access the weblog. Ok thats it, back to debugging...

It's my first day today and I was asked to look at their old website in which the forms doesn't work anymore. PHP was used in the creation of their website. It was the first time I encountered PHP and this truly was a relatively new technology for me so it took me a very long time to figure things out, things like the installation and setting up of the web server, which is Apache, and installation and setting up of PHP. Actually up until now, I don't know if I did the right thing or not. But the web server is up and running and it can now interpret PHP codes so I think its ok to say that I'm doing just fine, just fine for someone who just had his first day. Ok, that's all. Bye bye for now.Ü
