  1. 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 a great consistency of ensuring to send you down as many rabbit holes as possible. So because I was so frustrated looking for answers, I felt it was necessary to step away and get back to what I know. I tried installing Workbench, but for some reason it does not let you connect to 3306, so I tried changing that by reinstalling and reconfigured the port and the x-protocol port. But when I tried that, MySQL would still be attempting to connect to 3306. Then on top of all of this, MongoDB/Mongoose are having similar issues. When I would try to create a cluster on atlas and use the provided connection-string ALONG with setting my user, password, and made sure I whitelisted my IP. Then I would run a script to connect, then i get prompted to make sure my ip is on the whitelist page on my atlas. Please if anyone has encountered these issues, I'd pay for the answer because all of this is preventing me from being able to complete projects, because without a database then I'd onl be forced to make simple apps that do not require a database. And when you are striving to enter this career you have to use databses. SQL being most important for employment, but this issue is preventing me from working with it. If I have to pay extra for the answer let me know so we can work something out! Thank you and God bless all of you! Have a splendid day!
  2. 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 could work without those errors telling me I'm wrong but then the code runs. So I had to fix this because if I deploy a PHP site and that could happen, then I would be very concerned if I were running a business. I was thinking maybe have a method that had a bucket that traps prototype pollution; not to say that all of those are bad, that's how social-media fetches data for ad-campaigns. The concern is the potential for malicious activity to hide in the mix, that could range out to anything. Given the nature of the cyber world, that is a rational concern to have, in my opinion. I do hope this helps anyone encountering the same and/or similar issue! Have a great day everyone!
  3. 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 then it's a joke. However given the circumstances going on the world wide web lately, it's safe to say it is not just a coincidence. If others have had this issue and know how to properly fix and prevent such things, I'd appreciate some guidance. If it's a case of "don't worry about it", that will not work for me because then I will not be able to deploy any websites/projects (unless that is the goal of this 'joke') until I get this situated.
  4. 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 experienced this type of obstacle when starting out trying to land an entry level/junior web developer position. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you! I hope everyone has a great evening.
