  1. There is a command in the code to extend the time limit that will work in some situations. However, it won't work if your server is in safe mode so you may want to check with your host to see if that is the case. Many hosts will turn it off when asked. You can also try placing sleep commands in-between the various sections. For example, in admin/includes/functions/sitemonitor.php, find this line

    /************** SEE IF THERE ARE ANY NEW FILES ****************/

    and add this before it

    sleep(100);

    where 100 is 100 seconds. You can use any number you want. That will work on some servers but not on others - worth a try though. However, if it works and you have a bunch of them in the file so that it takes 10 minutes, for example, to complete, that is a ten minute window for a hacker to make changes that might go unnoticed. Probably very unlikely but something to be aware of.

     

    I am getting a similar fatal error when I click on delete reference file or execute site monitor...strangely, manually check for hacked files works, so I have been using that. The error I get is:

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/html/DantGo2/includes/functions/sitemonitor_functions.php on line 780

     

    But as you see, the error occurs on a different line as previous posters...not sure if that means anything. I also noticed there are 5 updates. Can you tell me what I should do? Will getting the updates , perhaps, solve the issue.

     

    How do I go about doing the update? Thanks Jack!


  2. This contrib needs updating to allow for that, Simple Multi Images stores the image filename data in a new form for efficiency & to allow an unlimited number, code has to be added to this so it can understand that.

     

    I will provide the code as soon as I`ve time. wink.gif

     

    I believe I need this too as many of the images it is saying can be removed are my pop-ups. I'll be keeping my eye out for this.


  3. I have downloaded this contribution and am getting ready to try and install it. After reading the readme I am unclear on this portion of the instructions

     

     

     

    Can you please explain this for an idiot such as myself, I find it easier to understand fully than to "forge ahead" and then really mess things up! :blush:

    Thank you ahead of time for your understanding and patience with me.

     

     

    Well, I forged ahead and messed it up. Really wasn't sure what I was doing at that last bit of instructions. When I run the remove images I get this error:

     

     

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '/' in /var/www/html/admin/remove_unused_images.php on line 89

     

    I entered on line 110 (I counted) as follows but I have a feeling it is absolutely wrong.

    $root_dir = /var/www/html/

    $base_dir = http://purplemartins-r-us.com/

     

    The directions :

    Open the remove_unused_images.php and go to Line 110 (SETTINGS) - and replace enter your site details.

     

    $root_dir = the actual SERVER side address of your website eg: C:/serverinfo/yoursite/httpdocs/catalog

    $base_dir = this is the actual URL of your website catalog eg: http://www.yoursite.com/catalog

     

    are not clear to me if anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

  5. On Xsell I can add items just fine. My problem is trying to remove them. I click add/remove and nothing happens.

    I have read several posts about issues with xsell and the fix that Lindsay used , I can't find where to even look for that code.

    As I did not install this contribution (and am pretty much a novice) I need some help..please!

     

    I have googled and see similar issues with it not working at all but that is not my problem. Like I said, it adds them on great but unfortunately I made a small error and can't get the item removed from the article.

    Am I better off deleting the item then just adding it back on again?

     

     

    thanks to all for your understanding and help


  6. I looked through thhis thread trying to figure out how I can utilize the Pseudo pages portion of this contribution. I am a novice so I don't have the base knowledge I probably need. Even still I have gotten some pointers here and there but can not find a true "instructions on Pseudo pages" anywhere.

    Can someone please post a step by step on how to implement Pseudo pages?

    From what Jack told me on another thread, I am sure this would work great for me as I have several articles that I would love to get noticed.

    Thanks so much for your patience! :blush:


  7. little question about this contribution.

    Can the free product be an item that is inactive? for example if I want to give them a token gift that I do not sell (a promo item) will this contribution work for that? Or is there something else?


  8. I saw this software thats called "PDF Catalog Creator for Oscommerce"-download. (off site) Was wondering if anyone has ever used this, if its anygood, if its worth 70 bucks. Its for making a printable catalog to be mailed to customers.

    Any input?

     

    It could really be a godsend for me.

     

    I looked and looked in the contributions area and I did not see anything like it here. The only thing close was for customers to print pages with items but not a true catalog.
