  1. I just realized now that you cannot upload an image file via application/json. Instead I somehow need to convert my project to use multipart/form-data in a MERN app. But the app uses JWT, so if i use multipart/form-data for registering/logginIn would jwt not work unless i use application/json? But without json how would it be possible to complete this app so that a user auth works so that they are signed into their userProtected Routes so then also user can select their own profile pic so that it shows on profile and user posts? Everything in this app works besides the image upload. Something
  2. I have been trying to find out how to fix an app I had built from a udemy course a while back, I am realizing that gravatar does not work. So I am trying to do a manual file upload for setting a profile pic. I felt discouraged to even ask of this here because there was not a segment on MERN via the course videos. In my actions file i have an auth.js with a register method, I was trying to take the avatar parameter and trying to use the .replace() to strip the C:\fakepath\ prepended string to the filename so that a user image will appear on the client. Has anyone ever encountered this obstacle?
  3. Good evening everyone, I am having incredible difficulty understanding the differences between the different apache environments. I am trying to start wordpress and it says I have to have php and mysql installed but if php isnt available on the command line via php --version || php -v does that man I would have to do another install for php itself even if it is on xampp? Also very important question:: Is it the same thing to install wordpress via Bitnami than using wordpress.org? Lastly, to note, when installing xampp I noticed one of the programs was called Fake Sendmail. And I want
  4. Good afternoon everyone, For a while now I have been trying to complete a chat application to add to my portfolio to get work. Because it is something not that simple, so that when an employer-recruiter sees I worked on and finished one then I could hopefully get a job in this field. I'm puzzled to either or not add messages to the database, because when deploying it it may cost a lot of money to hold the space for a first version to later be built on further. Also the main thing I'm trying to figure out is there a set list of things to have when working with a chat app that uses socket.io?
  5. I was also wondering if anyone here has any experience using namecheap with wordpress? If you need to purchase the hosting per month and as well as buying MAMP Pro to be able host a site with wordpress public on the web? As I have read that the free version is primarily good for development and testing purposes.
  6. Good afternoon everyone, I want to build my first Wordpress site from scratch thanks to the fundamental lessons taught. I was wondering if anyone had any advice as for if you use the standard Free version of MAMP is there any sort of project-management handling being that all PHP projects are stored in a single htdocs folder. I'm sure this may sound humerus to experienced Wordpress developers. I wanted to be sure that I wouldn't have issues, being that MAMP is a free service, if that is understandable? Because if I ever plan on providing websites/web-services and/or Wordpress/PHP jobs; I
  7. Good afternoon everyone, I was working with the PHP x MySQL course and noticed that if you change the root password from default 'root' to your own unique password. it automatically locks you out. I already am aware some may read this and think why not just leave it like that then change it later for production; that is the catch-22 of this situation. Because if you just go with the flow of it, you are setting yourself up for problems that could arise from any rootkits hidden on your computer that inject malware and trigger DDoS at any moment. I'm still trying to pinpoint but google has
  8. I was able to resolve my issue by having made a new working directory, since whatever it was making the errors appear was ousted upon a new instance. So first I removed the old file I was working in, which had this anomaly. Then when working in the new one, the error came back. Thanks to paying attention where Stef explains what the underscore does I was able to realize that whatever was being done was pointing to specific directory/files, depending on if you are working on it or not. So to fix it I re-ininitialized that pointed file so whatever is being done there is stuck there so then I cou
  9. Good afternoon everyone, I'm learning how to work with PHP for wordpress and I have noticed some funny/peculiar things. Not sure if its a joke/hack/test/etc (that's later T.B.D), I was working on the custom functions lesson and I noticed that I would get an error to add another parenthesis/curly bracket, but when I try the code still says an error, but in actuality the code runs. Which leads me to believe that whatever the source of this is, it still allocates the code but the code is more than likely printed elsewhere: to emulate a fake error to possibly mislead someone. If it's a joke t
  10. Good evening everyone, I am a little over a year into web development (8 months out of coding bootcamp), with a background in MERN stack. Since completing that course,I have since then been attempting to rerun through what I was taught, along with diving into different languages, in hopes I'd find what I like best (still trying to figure that out). Where I then found out about this program and felt it was the perfect thing to get involved with. Besides trying to find out what to add to past projects, I am having just as much of a hard time deciding what exactly to build. Has anyone else e
