Hi pecoes well I just came up with this - not my solution unfortunately - I don't understand why but it did make the difference!!!! I'm tempted to think my ISP who I'd also written to has fixed something. Let me know if it works "Are those includes outside of your www-site? If not, then this should ...

Thanks for the responce - at least there is some comfort in knowing I'm not alone!!!

If the CGI root is the only way I'll have to start at the beginning 'cos I ain't got a clue!!!

I do know however that I don't have .htaccess access!!!

open_basedir restriction in effect - I'm confused!

Hi I've been looking for a solution to this problem but only found similar problems and no solution (certainly not one I understand as a solution anyway!!) This script I'm running is in the dir called admin. and the line is a simple - include "/inc/connectdb.php" This is my error message: open_based...

Again thanks for the idea. In Germany credit cards are not the norm - hence you can still buy things on the internet and be billed after delivery! Putting these sorts of barriers between me and the client would probably result in me not having the client. I come from UK where the idea of these payme...

back doors for non payers

Hi, I've been developing my first php sites as a freelancer and have a slight payment problem. I would like to give the client the site, as more work is promised, but I'm not over convinced he's going to pay! I want to build a back door that will allow me to delete the database tables. Probably not ...

LAST_INSERT_ID( )

Hi, My basic question is . "is LAST_INSERT_ID( ) a value returned everytime an insert query is run?" Why? Inserting into two tables: The second insert contains the auto_increment value from the first. I have two users on line. User X clicks the button to send the form which is saved in the database....

moving between 2 windows - what if opener has been closed!!

I would be grateful for any ideas with this one. Can I assign a name to a window after it's opened. I want to be able to move back and forth between two. My first window opens a second called "secondwindow" Moving between the two as "opener" and "secondwindow" is no problem unless some shuts the "op...

drop down list width

Can I control the display width of a drop down.

Some of the options are quite wide so I'd like it to work logically. About 150 pixels closed but when open display to the width of the options.

Am I asking too much??

Thought I'd let you know I eventally worked out the problem why I could get $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] to work.
I'm running IIS. When I upload to my apache server it worked!!!

Many thanks -(and sorry for doubting!!)

Hi, Many thanks again for the promt answer. Your print_r($_SERVER) worked beautifully unfortunately though it told me I was barking up the wrong tree. $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']! didn't give the URL that was typed. Although I think that one does give the refering URL if it's from a link. From what I've...

capture the typed URL on custom error

My end goal is to make w (actual page will not exist as such) redirect to a page that will take the URL, and split out the "anyname" into a variable. My idea was to create a custom error page using .htaccess. It works fine when accessed from a link but of course if the URL has been typed in there is...

understanding global variables $GET $POST ect

Hi I'd like confirmation that I understand something please. If I set Global variables to "OFF" I should still be able to use "$POST, $GET ect to retrieve values from a form. Does this mean that the receiving page will only take note of the values actually posted (or getted!!) from the form therefor...
