Is there a good pre-existing class for dealing with URLs in PHP?

Is there a widely accepted class for dealing with URLs in PHP? Things like: getting/changing parts of an existing URL (e.g. path, scheme, etc), resolving relative paths from a base URL. Kind of like a two-way parse_url(), encapsulated with a bunch of handy functions. Does something like this exist?

PHP, MySQL on IIS - MySQL not being loaded when serving pages

I have, as best as I can manage, set up IIS (6.0), PHP (5.2.8) and MySQL (5.1.30) on Windows Server 2003, with all the involved mucking about (I think) in IIS and PHP to get things talking to each other. PHP does work - however, I cannot use the mysql or mysqli libraries from a PHP page. Fatal error: Class 'mysqli' not found in... Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in... Information relating to MySQL or MySQLi does not appear when using phpinfo() in a PHP page. However,

Where do you "Load Balance" an ORM in a PHP MVC Application

The Problem: Object models built using an ORM often need to perform multiple queries to perform a single action. For example a "get" action may pull information from multiple tables, particularly when you have a nested object structure. On complicated requests these queries can add up and your database will start blocking long before it would if you were manually writing SQL. The Question: Where do you load balance the ORM to cut down on the number of queries that need to be made, and more imp

Php Caching data by using hidden divs

I'm trying to speed up response times in my ajax web application by doing the following: Say the user requests a page whose contents don't change (e.g a web form). When the user makes a different request, I 'cache' the form by putting it in a hidden div. Before displaying the new information. So the form is basically still loaded in the browser but not visible to the user. If the user requests the same form again, it gets loaded from the hidden div. That's notably faster than doing a round-tri

PHP/Apache, options +indexes in htaccess doesn't work for root directory

I need to offer a directory listing of the root directory of my site, so I created an .htaccess file containing options +indexes It works for subdirectories, but for the main directory I get the Test Page for the Apache HTTP Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux page.

Php How to properly preload images, js and css files?

I'm creating a website from scratch and I was really into this in the late 90's but the web has changed alot since then! And I'm more of a designer so when I started putting this site together, I basically did a system of php includes to make the site more "dynamic" When you first visit the site, you'll be presented to a logon screen, if you're not already logged on (cookies). If you're not logged on, a page called access.php is introdused. I thought I'd preload the most heavy images at this p

PHP: optimum configuration storage?

My application gets configured via a lot of key/values (let's say 30.000 for instance) I want to find the best deployment method for these configurations, knowing that I want to avoid DEFINEs to allow for runtime re-configuration. I have thought of pre-compiling them into an array via a php file pre-compiling them into a tmpfs sqlite database pre-compiling them into a memcached db what are my options for the best random access time to these configuration (memory is not an issue) ? the b

Php Authentication for SaaS

What would be recommended as an authentication solution for a Software-as-a-service product? Specifically, my product would have clients that would typically have low information technology skills, potentially not even having an IT department within their organization. I would still like to have my application authenticate against their internal directory service (eDirectory, Active Directory, etc.). I don't want them, however, to have to open/forward ports (for instance, opening up port 636 so

PHP -- automatic SQL injection protection?

I took over maintenance of a PHP app recently and I'm not super familiar with PHP but some of the things I've been seeing on the site are making me nervous that it could be vulnerable to a SQL injection attack. For example, see how this code for logging into the administrative section works: $password = md5(HASH_SALT . $_POST['loginPass']); $query = "SELECT * FROM `administrators` WHERE `active`='1' AND `email`='{$_POST['loginEmail']}' AND `password`='{$password}'"; $userInfo = db_

PHP session corrupt

Using symfony framework 1.4 I have created a website. I'm using sfguard for authentication. Now, this is working great on WAMP (windows). I can login to several accounts on different browsers and use the website. I have ubuntu server 9.10 running apache (everything up to date and default configuration). On my server, when I login to the website in one browser it works great. When I on my other computer login with another user account on the public website, the login is successful. But when I r

PHP not obeying my defined ETags

What I'm doing I'm pulling an image from the database and sending it to the browser with all the proper headers - the image displays fine. I also send an ETag header, using the SHA1 of the image's content as the tag. The images are getting called semi regularly, so caching is a bit of an issue (won't kill the site, but nice to have). The Problem $_SERVER['HTTP_IF_NONE_MATCH'] is not available to me. As far as I can tell, this is because of PHP's "disobey the cache controls" life style. I can

Php How to properly display utf encoded characters on my utf-8 encoded page?

Force timeout on a MysqlQuery from PHP

Is there a way to force Mysql from PHP to kill a query if it didn't return within a certain time frame? I sometimes see expensive queries running for hours (obviously by this time HTTP connection timed out or the user has left). Once enough such queries accumulate it starts to affect the overall performance badly.

Php Kohana 3 ORM: constructor "after load"

Is there any way in Kohana 3's ORM to run a chunk of code in a model, but only after that model has been loaded from the database? A simple example is a required has_one relationship. ORM::factory('user')->where('name', '=', 'Bob')->find(); Now what if all users have to have some other property, so if Bob doesn't exist, it will have to be created? Right now, in the place where this line is running, I'm checking for null primary key, and instructing the model to add that relationship

Php How to merge two dates into a normal human readable date range

Say you have the following date range: 2010-04-10 - 2010-04-15 As a human, I might write this as April 10 - 15, 2010, or something like that. Not sure if there is a defined correct way of writing ranges like that, but anyways, if you were to do something like that, how would you do that? I'm not even sure where to begin... I'd like to do this so that the date ranges potentially can be more compact, easier to read and also nicer looking.

Php How to install a Google search box with suggest on MediaWiki?

I have found several extensions for MediaWiki which allow you put a Google search box for searching the web on your MediaWiki site. However, none of them seem to have an option to enable suggest, which populates a drop down menu of possible search terms based on what the user has typed in so far. How can I do this? I posted this to Stackoverflow, because the solution will most likely require programming. FYI, the existing extensions I found are: -

Php Alternative to block a table

I have a table called 'messages' (INNODB) where the user can insert their own posts. I want to put a limitation. In my php script when the table gets to 10 records, you can not add more.

My difficulty is in properly managing the possibility of two user who do the same thing simultaneously. If the user A is in

Php Session Data Not Showing When Cookies Disabled

I'm pretty new to PHP and am experimenting with cookies and sessions. So, in IE, if I set my Privacy settings to Block All Cookies, obviously all cookies will be blocked but what about sessions?

In other words, whatever I set for the session variable should stick with the browser for as long as the browser is open but this does not seem to be happening. My whole thought proc
