We are working in a project about DBA (Data base administrator) and CRM (Customer relationship management) for a web site. I have a question. What are the administrator functions?
The page contains functions that clean-up, compact, edit, and backup our web-based database tables. We also have other functions helpful to maintaining a web site such as functions to create indices, links to web-based documentation, a way to send E-mail, a way to view files uploaded to our site, and a way to do mass E-mails.
Most of the functions on the administrator page are password protected so that web surfers can not execute the functions.
E-mail -- E-mail grabbing webbots
E-mail -- Hiding addresses from spammer bots
I'm trying to assist the web master of a site for a computer club of which I'm a member. We have a great many e-mail addresses listed (forwarding types). As you might expect the spammer bots have picked up some. On your web site I noticed that you have a scheme in place to thwart the bots. Could you point me to a resource where we could get some how-to info. Thanks.
This trick works because web spiders follow links but do not submit forms.
How do I get a User ID?
I am a long-time dancer now interested in calling. I love your site and resources and would like to know what I need to do to get a user id. It does not seem obvious on the site.
To obtain a User Key for one of my computer programs, you must purchase the program.
I see you make use of extensive PHP files.
I would be curious what type of database system you're using and how much of your PHP files are custom vs. generic from other sites.
Any insights into your design would be intriguing.
We use MySQL under PHP4 as the database system.
One reason I started our web site was to learn a better way to do web-based databases. I had a project at work using a Mustang WinServer, Bluestone Sapphire Web, and an Oracle 7.3 database. I wasn't happy with how it all worked (primarily with the WinServer), so I started playing around with MySQL/PHP.
I'd say over 95% of our site is PHP instead of HTML.
About 90% of the PHP scripts are custom written by me.
I use three 'freeware' PHP applications:
The first two applications are for database administrator functions, although I had to write a few such functions myself (primarily backup and restore functions).
WebExplorer is a nice alternative to FTP.
A few times a year, I look at some of the PHP resources listed on our tools page ( http://www.ceder.net/tools.php ) for PHP scriplets that might be useful.
PHP is excellent for including files, accessing databases, doing redirection, creating files, and all other sorts of server-side CGI tasks.
Hi. I'm a caller, and my web site is nearing completion. I would very much like to include a link from your site to mine. Would that be OK with you? I'd also like you to link to my site. You've got a great site with important (and cool) information to share.
This will automatically create a page on our site for you similar to http://www.ceder.net/callerdb/viewsingle.php?RecordId=393
This will also automatically place your web site on our list of 'Callers with Web Sites' at http://www.ceder.net/callerdb/caller_web_sites.php
As for our Links page, http://www.ceder.net/links.php, I only list sites that I deem contain significant and important information.
I'm also curious as to your background. I'm going to guess you have a programming background (or that you're an active S/W developer).
