We’re going to install phpBB shortly.Â Like WordPress, the phpBB authors recently came out with a 3.0 version of the software.Â To install that, take a look at my OLD phpBB message board HERE for install instructions.Â Note that this time, we are going to install a “BZip 2” archive (.bz2 file).Â BZIP is a different, but similar program to GZIP that we have used many times.Â The command to use it in Putty is:
bzip2 whatever.tarÂ Â Â Â (create a .bz2 archive from the .tar file)
bunzip2 whatever.bz2Â Â Â Â (get the .tar file out of a .bz2 archive)
An important skill for a webmaster is the ability to password protect a directory. The easiest way to do that (and other cool tricks) is to learn how to create .htaccess and .htpasswd files. Here is a link that helps create those files HERE. Also, a tutorial that explains how to use .htaccess files to do some other tricks can be found HERE.
Working example of a redirect:
Redirect 301 /index.html http://student000.mreliot.com/wordpress/index.php
Another cool thing that an .htaccess file can do is redirect your homepage. Part of your assignment is to get rid of your old homepage, and REDIRECT visitors to your WordPress blog homepage. You can find a tutorial that explains “301 redirects” HERE.
This assignment will be our last working in depth with PHP. Most of the assignment is written for you, but you have to fix much of the MySQL code, which is missing. Check out my working version HERE.
This assignment focuses on arrays and using them with files. In particular, the PHP implode() and explode() functions which are used to store array data in files. Check out my version of the assignment HERE.
For our next assignment, we will create a simple guestbook using a text file. The guestbook will be a form that submits to itself. The key to this assignment is the ORDER that operations are completed. First the file should be written, then read, and then the entry form is displayed for NEW guestbook entries. Check out my version of the assignment HERE.Â You can also see how the data file looks HERE.
Sticky forms are forms that submit to themselves until all data entered by the user is correct. At that point, they give a confirmation message that the form was correct and usually send a confirmation email. Check out my version of AS09 HERE.
This assignment makes use of string functions, if statements, and loops to verify the input a user entered into a form. Check out my version HERE.
Here is my version of Assignment 07. You can use this to test YOURS and make sure it works. It comes with default text on the form, but you can change it to whatever text that YOU would like to test 🙂
