  SSL in PHP for WAMP


Sometimes when we need to use email service provided by WAMP, we need to use some remote mail server such as Gmail. In Gmail, if we want to use the SMTP server to send email and want to use port 465, then the SSL connection should be setup. But by default in WAMP, the ssl is not usable. So to allow use SSL, what we should do is go to system tray and click PHP->PHP Extensions->php_openssl. Then now you can use Gmail to send email easily....

For website, the data in database will grow quickly, so when we back up the database, the size of the generated sql file may be over 80MB which is the max allowed size when we want to import a sql file for restoring our database using phpMyAdmin. To workaround this limit, we need to review the documentation of phpMyAdmin. Fortunately, I found an online article written by David Pratt  which gave us a ...

  Host multiple websites in Wamp


I have decided to start playing around with the Zend Framework. I have a web host (of course) however sometimes when developing I find it is easier and faster to use a local web server, with all the bells and whistles. WAMP, LAMP (this link is ubuntu specific, but any linux distribution should have easy HowTo guide for installing the LAMP software stack), MAMP, all provide the basic environment for beginning web development, and some have nice little GUIs to help you con...

  I'm Retiring from PHP


I am retiring from PHP as my language of choice for personal side projects and new programming ventures. This was not an easy decision to come to, but one that I think is necessary for my love of programming to continue. You see, I'm not only a programmer because I love programming, but because I can not do anything else. History It all started in 1999 when I was in 8th grade. The Internet was really starting to get interesting and I wanted to start programming. I had picked up...
