  1. MAMP installed OK. Seemed to work pretty well, except for the fact that I could not get it to enable error reporting. Had to find some PHP code to add to each of my docs to get that to work. The MySQL server stopped turning on after the first day of use. Wasn't using it anyway so I ignored while I finished the PHP course. couldn't find any easy fixes, so I unistalled and reinstalled. Again worked for one day an then stopped turning on. Downloaded WAMP instead. So far so good, but it does have a very different user interface. If anyone has experienced similar issues with MAMP and has any easy fix, I'm all ears.
  2. Do you think it would help to uninstall, then reinstall MAMP? Should I maybe switch to using WAMP, or one of the other servers? Are any of them beginner friendly? (Yeah...guess, using PHP includes would be good practice. LOL.)
  3. Verified the version of PHP that I am using in MAMP, which is 7.2.10. Chose the corresponding php.ini doc. Searched for display_errors and found that it was off. changed to on. Saved doc. turned off Apache server. Closed MAMP. Restarted MAMP and server. Reloaded the php doc for this lesson ch4-lesson-1.php. Still not showing the errors?!. What am I doing wrong? Found a work around on Stackify by pasting in the following code into the PHP doc: ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); This works, but only on a doc by doc basis.
  4. I'm on the PHP course chptr 4 lesson 1 We are checking out the php.ini doc for the first time. My doc has the date.timezone commented out and with no time zone set: [Date] ; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions ;date.timezone = Is this a problem or should I ignore? Should I uncomment it out, and set to UTC? On StackOverflow, they recommend using the date_default_timezone_get() function to see the default timezone, I added that to this lessons document, saved and refreshed, and got nothing. -Keith
  5. I'm new to web development, but I do presently run my own lawn service business with my wife. Getting customers is the hardest part, of probably most businesses. From what I have heard and tried myself, creating content is the best way to get customers. First off you need a site, then you need to optimize it for SEO, meta tags, keywords, relevant terms in the text of the site. You'll need to set up Google My Business to recognize it. Including a blog on the site for you to publish short articles and images would help. You'll also want to set up a Facebook page for the business, and accounts through Twitter, Instagram, Google+. Videos on Youtube would also help. All of this stuff will point back to your site and should slowly increase your ranking on Google. These are just some of the basics. You'll have to do some other things to get the flow of customers started. Try getting on Upwork, maybe try Craigslist, Youtube videos giving advise to non-techies about websites, with a little helpful self-promotion, would probably be a good way to start funneling people to your site. Stef has some courses on this stuff. I haven't tried them yet, still learning the basics of web dev. John Morris on also has a TON of videos about getting customers through Upwork, you might check those out. I have a close friend who works for a SEO service firm. I plan to eventually give them a shot once I start the ball rolling. He says they are very good. This is kinda my general game plan anyways.
