What should be the easiest part of doing the website is causing me the most trouble.

All I want to do is a simple select, order by, and display. But nooo.

I'm really frustrated right now. Really really frustrated.

How are you trying to do it?

PHP4 and MySQL. There's something in the script that's causing it to flake out completely; no part of it is getting through, not even the head information at the top of the file. I know PHP and MySQL will talk, because I can use scripts to insert and modify information in the database with no problem.

*swoons* Geektalk! *happysigh* Oh, absolutely, php and mySQL will talk wonderfully...

I have swo much experience with this. I wish I could see your code...

All I could suggest is to lace your code thoroughly with print statements to trace your system's status...

I put lines before the php started, and nothing's coming up at all, which is the weird part. The code is laced with print statements to try and figure out what's breaking it, but.. yeah. Nothing at all comes up. All the html is ignored.

Then either the program's quitting out very early on... (possibly from included files?) or...

Is it possible you left an html tag open? Have you looked at the page source to see what the raw HTML that results from the PHP looks like?

I'm sorry if you've tried all of these, I'm just trying to help. *^_^*

Huh. Interesting. When I view source, nothing comes up at all in Opera. When I do it in IE, I get the generic blank < head > information, but nothing else.

This is really strange.

Hrmmm... any way you could show me your code? Do you know my email addy? Maybe post it up, but run it through a filter to make it HTML safe? (change < signs to &lt;, etc...)

What's your email address?
Apr. 2nd, 2004 05:53 am (UTC)
I *think* I just sent it to you. Did you get it?
Apr. 2nd, 2004 06:15 am (UTC)
It's something in the PHP, the server logs are throwing a parse error before anything can even be displayed. Not sure what's making it cranky yet, but at least it's a start :P
Apr. 2nd, 2004 06:45 am (UTC)
Okay, mystery solved, there were just a few syntax errors in the PHP, all fixed :)
Apr. 2nd, 2004 06:57 am (UTC)
Oh good!

Wish I could have helped a little more. I'm such a geek, but I absolutely love coding PHP/mySQL stuff. :)

Oh, I'm sure she'll be quite happy to come to you with plenty of PHP/mySQL questions now...I didn't get the whole gallery working, I just fixed the compile errors ;) The work on the page itself has just begun!

*earperk* Gallery? I already have some freely movable auto-image gallery code with admin functionality made... do you want to see it? I'll be on tonight, my AIM account is joewolfbrother...

I see programming has already driven you to smoke. How much longer before you pick up the drink?
Apr. 2nd, 2004 11:38 am (UTC)
Let's see, it's...1:38 right now. I get out at 4:00. Make it a half hour commute, means...

2 hours, 52 minutes til I pick up the drink ;)
