php5 3 years old and php4 7 years old

php 5.2.3 release!

from php.net

"The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.2.3. This release continues to improve the security and the stability of the 5.X branch as well as addressing two regressions introduced by the previous 5.2 releases. These regressions relate to the timeout handling over non-blocking SSL connections and the lack of HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA in certain conditions. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this release."

I’ll do upgrade for my box but my hosting service still use 5.1.2 ( from phpinfo() ).

While php4 already  reach 7 years of deployment make this version still in my favourite ( I install php4 as apache module and php5 as cgi)

for windows user xampp or wamp provide the latest version of php for complete. Switch to php4 and php5 very easy as switch menu available.

with slow migration php4 to php5 then php6 become more difficult to adopt since it force user to make secure programming with superglobals and register_globals Off.

Life is option so with the php version :-)

Oh no, fedora 7 is out too, no ‘core’ , just plain fedora in the name.

time for wget 😉

Install Local FTP server in Windows XP

At previous post about install wordpress in localhost, I got new question :

What about FTP server, is it possible to install local FTP server to make simulation like upload to real server?

The answer is : Yes

Just install FTP server in computer and point it’s shared folder, for example :

C:\appserv\www

Here’s the steps :

1. Download latest version from here

filezilla.PNG

2. Download FTP client, for example coreftp from here

3. Install FTP server and FTP client

4. Add any password you want, like 123456

5. Add user and password for accessing folder in FTP server, I use : alamster and password : 123456

6. Add shared folder, this folder is destination folder like ‘public_html’ or www in real production server

7. Try login to FTP server with defined user and password at previous step.

Free Blog on Your Own Domain with Free Email Hosting Part 1

Finally I buy paid hosting for my rasyid.net domain and I got free .info domain for 1 year.

Now I’m waiting for transfer domain process and I just think about using my domain rasyid.info for blogging too 😉

I’ll start this blog (rasyid.info) from scratch and host it in blogspot.

At the end of this process I get :

1. Blogspot blog with my own domain ( http://www.rasyid.info)

2. My own email xxx@rasyid.info, will be host by google using google apps ( free version)

I consider it as ‘from zero to one’ process, so I’ll make it as series, might be usefull for anyone who want to start blogging with his/her own domain.

Uncle Ben or aunt May may use blog too as alternative writing media beside watching soap opera :-)

Here’s the general process :

1. Setting dns at domain registrar and register for account in mydomain.com .

2. Register account at blogspot and configure blogpot to use my domain as url address.

3. Testing phase, stop writing start blogging :-)

Ok, let start from part 1 ( Setting dns at domain registrar and register for account in mydomain.com).

1. My idea in the beginning are hosting blog at blogpot and hosting email at google apps.

To accomodate those things I need more flexible dns management.

I prefer to use mydomain.com .

Mydomain provide powerfull dns management for free not only for top level domain but also for other country domain like .id (Indonesia).

To use mydomain I must change dns entry to point to mydomain dns server :

 

ns1.mydomain.com

ns2.mydomain.com

ns3.mydomain.com

ns4.mydomain.com

Input this data to my domain control panel :
