Javascript Web Development

A Weekend Full of Learning

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

What a crazy and full weekend! Many thanks to Demitrious for helping me out this weekend with PHP. If you are a beginner, check out Demtrious’s article: Poor Man’s Debugger. This article helped me greatly over the past weekend and I feel like I now have a good handle on what to do when things go unexpectedly.

After finally getting some to to set up my development environment, I began thinking…why am I not using Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.1.2? What made me think about this? “Legacy Release” The phrase “legacy release” is what httpd.apache.org described Apache 1.3.x as in their news section. I have been using Apache 1.x for several years now, only ever really thinking about migrating to 2.0 because of the need to run a subversion server. I have a solid web server solution in place that has made me very happy for the last few years using Apache 1.3.x, but it is finally... Read More » Read more

the art of php include().

If you have a common header, footer, block of information that needs to be on multiple pages and the thought of only editting something once instead of on multiple pages, php include is for you! (assuming you have php installed on your server) Example: To include a common header: (you would place this statement in your code wherver you would like your header to be located) Once you make a change to header.html, all...
