  1. Hi friends, quick question and Im new to all of this. I didnt use a preconfigured package like xampp and wamp, learning from online tutorials. I installed everything manually by hand. Apache 2 and PHP5 on Win7, and my site looks good on localhost. Took me forever and sleepless knights LOL to get Apache and php working, and recently I installed Joomla 2.5. Im having problems with installation on 2:Pre-installation check, the database support says no, so I figured it was cause I didn't have Mysql installed. So I installed Msql5, and configured it by following the instructions. I restarted Apache and started Joomla installation again, and it still says Database Support: No, at the top right. Installation wont let me go any further till I fix the problem. I looked around google on it, saying something about enabling extension mysql.dll in php.ini file or something. Confusing stuff when im a newbie, did anybody came across this problem, and or does anybody know how to do fix this and tell me step by step. Thanx everybody
  2. Cool, got it to work, thanx all friends who viewed at least for the support. If you or anyone have the same problem or similar, let me know. Ill let ya know what I did.
  3. Hello my friends, Im new to Apache. Does anyone here use Apache server with Vonage router. Im a little confused and stuck on trying to get my site live for the internet for the past 5 days now. I can see my site from the browser at localhost and localhost/index.html. So Im assuming everything is working good so far, I configured the httpd.conf file and PHP5 to work together,sense Im only hosting my online resume and portfolio, I html/css hand coded. My original isp is verizon "DSL westell modem", but recently my parents got Vonage "vdv22-vd" so they could set up home phone for international calling. I don't get my internet through Vonage, but through Verizon. Vonage router is hooked into the westell modem, then vonage to my computer. So now I can't access the westell configuration menu, only vonage menu with ip - So I had no choice but to portforward vonage to :80, it sucks. The port is open, I ran a port checker and status says port :80 open. My server ip "im assuming static ip" is - 71.178.xxx.xx, and default gateway "im assuming is the vonage router ip" is - , do I use one of these ip's for something. Not sure, maybe in apache httpd.conf or host file something. I signed up with freedns and got a subdomain name, nothing fancy "rjapzdesigns.dynet.com". I also have the freedns update software installed and running too, don't know much how to use the update, i guess it updates Ips or something, so I just keep it on. All this is running on another pc/server, not my regular pc. I have a feeling im overlooking or missing a few things, where do I go from here, going crazy with this, how do I get my site live guys, and link my freedns "rjapz.dynet.com" to my home server 71.178.xxx.xx.
  4. Hello everybody, Im new to the forum and Im a little confused and need your help. Im more of a graphic designer then a web designer and I have done a few hand coding ''html/css" sites for local businesses. I am familiar with web designing. I’ve done some easy sites with simple links like, home, about, service, products, gallery and contact pages. And copy/paste free simple PHP forms. And today, I got a client needing me to just redo his website, I said ok no prob, I just get a new template and edit it with my html editor. My client runs a talent show case business or something for talented people to be noticed. Then he sends me this this long email, Im only posting part of the email, the complex part for me: {Members} sign up are free, they'll able to watch videos, vote in contests, and leave comments but they can't upload videos. Show casers pay $9.95 a month to upload 3 videos per month or $14.95 a month and ASFUT will place all 3 videos on the desktops of every Talent Seekers in our database. Talent Seekers will only be charge when they make a request for the Talent info. We need to put a gateway (pay pal) for rein-current fees. Please help, I don't even know where to start, what scripts do I use for this, or point me to the right direction, a hint or clue. Never done something like this before, I don’t want to look bad, and let him down, and plus it’s great experience for me. Is this mysql or javascript or something like that, is this something that his website host has to take care off, or some script I have to add. I know Youtube has the upload function, but how do I add the upload videos, forms to fill and for him to except payment. Im sorry guys for this long post, I just need a clue, Im lost. For what I read, it sounds like 40 pages at least, and I never done no more then 8 pages. HELP!
