[XoopsTeam] - seth_sd - XOOPS Advisory Team - Member

The idea of a XOOPS advisory team is excellent.

I am the Director of Information Technology for a publicly traded medical device firm in San Diego,CA. We made a strategic decision to use XOOPS as our Intranet Portal well over 3 years ago and am very interested in its continued success. In addition, we have made Open Source software a critical part of our IT strategy by moving all of our core applications and storage to Linux.

I have over 10 years of experience planning and implementing IT projects ranging from ERP to Storage to Network Infrastructure.

XOOPS is one of the best Open Source products I have ever come across. The news of the last couple of days is an excellent development and I would be happy to help in any way that I can.

Hopefully, my experience and willingness to use XOOPS strategically in a corporate environement allows me to contribute in a meaningful way as XOOPS heads in a new direction.

The advisory team proposal by PHPPP is exactly what I am capable of offering the community if you'll be kind enough to have me.

Thank You,
Seth Miller

Re: LDAP Authentication into eDirectory

Yep, think you got that right. I can't remember who was working on that but he's making good progress and I think is working on syncronizing the directories as well so no more maintaing users in two places.

One thing I noticed is that once you get the user in both places, login to xoops, logout, change user password in your LDAP directory and then you can login to XOOPS with both the old and new password....kind of convenient as your users would never forget their password(well that might be wishful thinking) but not very secure.

Check this - LDAP

Re: Xoops Authentication system (LDAP)

So when you say "syncronization" you mean that we'll be able to use Ad for username and password and it will update when the user changes the password in AD? We experience the problem where a user changes their password in AD and this module still alows them to use both their old and new password.

Excellent work by the way!

Re: Apache on port 8081

Quote:
I am running Xsas on a Windows 2003 Server box. I have previously run my website, using Xsas, on a Windows 2000 box with no problems. However, on the Win2003 box I cannot run Apache on port 80 as that port is already in use. I have edited the httpd.conf file as follows:


Why not stop the service that is running on 80 so Apache can run on 80?

http://www.sysinternals.com/Files/TcpView.zip is a nice tool to find out what it is if you don't know. Maybe you do know but don't want to stop it in which case you can ignore my suggestion?

Too bad it has all those other posts in the way.


Oh yeah, that is a classic isn't it! I wondered if it would be as funny if you didn't know baseball but I had to post it because it just seemed so appropriate for this thread!

I can give you another good example of the same misunderstanding...

A customer buys a hard drive from a shop.

The hard drive is advertised as being "lead free".

The customer gets the drive home, and is upset...

the customer returns to the shop and says "Where is my free lead?"

the shopkeeper explains: "It is not a free lead (as in cable) but it is free from lead (as in the metal) ... as it has no lead (the metal) in it"

Both are right - but the word being spelt the same caused confusion.

It is all too easy to misunderstand people...


I'll take a guess and say davidl2 is british or australian because an american would look at the box and wonder what the hell they are are going to do with a heavy, malleable, poisonous piece of metal! Can it get any more confusing? That is of course if they read the same way as one that thought they were getting a free lead(as in cable), sheesh let's just stop now!

Re: Php forum

Gambero,

I think Herko's response was very light hearted and was meant to be humorous, he wasn't blaming you for anything. While you're welcome to leave I think it would be much more productive for you to move on and forget about it. No biggie!!

Not to continue to fuel the fire but, when he said "I'm trying to find a good php forum where I can get help from." I was still reading that as wanting to find a forum written in PHP that was well supported??? So still not sufficiently clear in my mind either.

Re: Php forum

That was a classic. Two people with two totally different ideas and both of their comments actually make sense based on what they were thinking. It's amazing that this doesn't happen more often with people coming from so many places and having so many different native languages.

I have to say I was understanding it the same way as Gambero.

A classic from Abbott and Costello might be appropriate here :

**********************************************************
Abbott: Well Costello, I'm going to New York with you. You know Bookie Harris, the Yankee's manager, gave me a job as coach for as long as you're on the team.

Costello: Look Abbott, if you're the coach, you must know all the players.

Abbott: I certainly do.

Costello: Well you know I've never met the guys. So you'll have to tell me their names, and then I'll know who's playing on the team.

Abbott: Oh, I'll tell you their names, but you know it seems to me they give these ball players now-a-days very peculiar names.

Costello: You mean funny names?

Abbott: Strange names, pet names...like Dizzy Dean...

Costello: His brother Daffy.

Abbott: Daffy Dean...

Costello: And their French cousin.

Abbott: French?

Costello: Goofè.

Abbott: Goofè Dean. Well, let's see, we have on the bags, Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know is on third...

Costello: That's what I want to find out.

Abbott: I say Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know's on third.

Costello: Are you the manager?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: You gonna be the coach too?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: And you don't know the fellows' names?

Abbott: Well I should.

Costello: Well then who's on first?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: I mean the fellow's name.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy on first.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The first baseman.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy playing...

Abbott: Who is on first!

Costello: I'm asking YOU who's on first.

Abbott: That's the man's name.

Costello: That's who's name?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: Well go ahead and tell me.

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: That's who?

Abbott: Yes.

PAUSE

Costello: Look, you gotta first baseman?

Abbott: Certainly.

Costello: Who's playing first?

Abbott: That's right.

Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?

Abbott: Every dollar of it.

Costello: All I'm trying to find out is the fellow's name on first base.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy that gets...

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: Who gets the money...

Abbott: He does, every dollar. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.

Costello: Whose wife?

Abbott: Yes.

PAUSE

Abbott: What's wrong with that?

Costello: Look, all I wanna know is when you sign up the first baseman, how does he sign his name?

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: How does he sign...

Abbott: That's how he signs it.

Costello: Who?

Abbott: Yes.

PAUSE

Costello: All I'm trying to find out is what's the guy's name on first base.

Abbott: No. What is on second base.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

Abbott: Who's on first.

Costello: One base at a time!

Abbott: Well, don't change the players around.

Costello: I'm not changing nobody!

Abbott: Take it easy, buddy.

Costello: I'm only asking you, who's the guy on first base?

Abbott: That's right.

Costello: Ok.

Abbott: All right.

PAUSE

Costello: What's the guy's name on first base?

Abbott: No. What is on second.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

Abbott: Who's on first.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott: He's on third, we're not talking about him.

Costello: Now how did I get on third base?

Abbott: Why you mentioned his name.

Costello: If I mentioned the third baseman's name, who did I say is playing third?

Abbott: No. Who's playing first.

Costello: What's on first?

Abbott: What's on second.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott: He's on third.

Costello: There I go, back on third again!

PAUSE

Costello: Would you just stay on third base and don't go off it.

Abbott: All right, what do you want to know?

Costello: Now who's playing third base?

Abbott: Why do you insist on putting Who on third base?

Costello: What am I putting on third.

Abbott: No. What is on second.

Costello: You don't want who on second?

Abbott: Who is on first.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott & Costello Together:Third base!

PAUSE

Costello: Look, you gotta outfield?

Abbott: Sure.

Costello: The left fielder's name?

Abbott: Why.

Costello: I just thought I'd ask you.

Abbott: Well, I just thought I'd tell ya.

Costello: Then tell me who's playing left field.

Abbott: Who's playing first.

Costello: I'm not... stay out of the infield! I want to know what's the guy's name in left field?

Abbott: No, What is on second.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

Abbott: Who's on first!

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott & Costello Together: Third base!

PAUSE

Costello: The left fielder's name?

Abbott: Why.

Costello: Because!

Abbott: Oh, he's centerfield.

PAUSE

Costello: Look, You gotta pitcher on this team?

Abbott: Sure.

Costello: The pitcher's name?

Abbott: Tomorrow.

Costello: You don't want to tell me today?

Abbott: I'm telling you now.

Costello: Then go ahead.

Abbott: Tomorrow!

Costello: What time?

Abbott: What time what?

Costello: What time tomorrow are you gonna tell me who's pitching?

Abbott: Now listen. Who is not pitching.

Costello: I'll break your arm, you say who's on first! I want to know what's the pitcher's name?

Abbott: What's on second.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott & Costello Together: Third base!

PAUSE

Costello: Gotta a catcher?

Abbott: Certainly.

Costello: The catcher's name?

Abbott: Today.

Costello: Today, and tomorrow's pitching.

Abbott: Now you've got it.

Costello: All we got is a couple of days on the team.

PAUSE

Costello: You know I'm a catcher too.

Abbott: So they tell me.

Costello: I get behind the plate to do some fancy catching, Tomorrow's pitching on my team and a heavy hitter gets up. Now the heavy hitter bunts the ball. When he bunts the ball, me, being a good catcher, I'm gonna throw the guy out at first base. So I pick up the ball and throw it to who?

Abbott: Now that's the first thing you've said right.

Costello: I don't even know what I'm talking about!

PAUSE

Abbott: That's all you have to do.

Costello: Is to throw the ball to first base.

Abbott: Yes!

Costello: Now who's got it?

Abbott: Naturally.

PAUSE

Costello: Look, if I throw the ball to first base, somebody's gotta get it. Now who has it?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: Who?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: Naturally?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: So I pick up the ball and I throw it to Naturally.

Abbott: No you don't, you throw the ball to Who.

Costello: Naturally.

Abbott: That's different.

Costello: That's what I said.

Abbott: You're not saying it...

Costello: I throw the ball to Naturally.

Abbott: You throw it to Who.

Costello: Naturally.

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: That's what I said!

Abbott: You ask me.

Costello: I throw the ball to who?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: Now you ask me.

Abbott: You throw the ball to Who?

Costello: Naturally.

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: Same as you! Same as YOU! I throw the ball to who. Whoever it is drops the ball and the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to What. What throws it to I Don't Know. I Don't Know throws it back to Tomorrow, Triple play. Another guy gets up and hits a long fly ball to Because. Why? I don't know! He's on third and I don't give a darn!

Abbott: What?

Costello: I said I don't give a darn!

Abbott: Oh, that's our shortstop.

Re: directory is wrong

Or you can try what Pod said. 6 of 1, half dozen of the other. Just remember if you do what Pod said, you'll still need to move everything under public_html/.

Re: directory is wrong

Well, if you've just started you may be best off uninstalling and starting over. Your life will really be easier if you put everythin right on the root of public_html/ . This way it would be something like http://www.yourdomain.com/install/ not http://www.yourdomain.com/html/install/. Then when you go to http://www.yourdomain.com after install everything will work. If you leave it the way it is you'll either have to put a redirection or a page with a redirection in the public_html/ directory.

So to summarize:

Everything below public_html/html/ gets gets put right in to public_html/ no more html/ directory. You must then re-install so that all of the configurations point to the new directory....
