Chapter 11: PHP Percolate! Season 5

Hello Tom and all -

Chapter 11 examples posted. Just follow the Chapter 11 link!

Chapter 11 was pretty much a breeze, especially since I took the time (or was forced to do it with some of the exercises of Chapter 9) to familiarize myself with the login procedures to get into a shell / terminal session on my hosting provider. cURL was available and worked. The mcrypt library was available and enabled. I was able to set up a cron job, but was familiar with that from the past. There were no protection issues with the account, I just had to create the top-level 'backups' directory. But after looking at the review exercises, I moved the backup directory above my web root directory, and modified db_backup accordingly.

I am definitely getting a lot of exposure to PHP in particular, but the experience of setting up a website, and knowing how to work "behind the scenes" is very valuable, I would say!

Have a great weekend everyone!
Ken

Here is Chapter 11: http://www.saralevy.c...­

I have a good real life use for cron so glad this was included.

Thanks Ken, after reading your comments I investigated my hostgater account again and found that I can enable sell access with limited capability. I'll have to play with that a little bit.

Excellent work Sara. Both you and Ken are really in the homestretch now!

Hello:

Here are my solutions for Chapter 11

Cron jobs are verified on my own Linux box.

Again,
Just another chapter that is hard to overestimate for my ongoing transition from all-Java environment to light-weight solutions where the tasks are not heavy. And it looks like heavy tasks can be handled nicely with the technology described in the Book of current study.

Finished up with Chapter 11. Had to install Mcrypt on the server - which went smoothly (schwew!). I use Plesk's built in features for managing cron jobs - call it a cop-out, but I don't use all that often - but always good to review the underpinnings.

The work is here
