    The Feedmachine Solution

    Hi Lech, Great contribution! I got the Google upload working fine in no time, so I decided to add the Bing upload into the FeedMachine: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7979 It creates the Bing file okay and I can use Filezilla to connect and upload the file just fine, but with the same FTP settings the FeedMachine automated process does not connect, it gets this error: Could not connect to ftp server: ftps://feeds.adcenter.microsoft.com Any idea why I can connect using Filezilla, but with the same settings it cannot connect using FeedMachine? Thanks for the help.

    Thanks Jack. That worked. One minor change (at least for my host) is that the email address needed to be in double-quotes: mail("your_address@aol.com", $subject, $results, $configuration['store_name']); Thanks again for all your help, Chuck

    Hi Jack, Thanks for the new version. I noticed the sitemonitor_hacker_cron job is sending the email report to the store owner's email address from the store configuration and not the email address in the sitemonitor_configuration file. My store owner has no clue about this report. Is there any fix for this to use the config file email address? I also wanted to point out the sitemonitor_hacker_excludes.txt is not used, it uses sitemonitor_hacker_excludes_0.txt Thanks, Chuck

    True, but I use a popular host, so it might be worth mentioning this option in the readme instructions to help you reduce your support efforts later. :) Thanks for all your help! Everything is working well now. Chuck

    Hi Jack, As far as running the cron job with instances, I forgot to mention the cron job needs to be run with curl and not php. Here is the command line that worked with my host: /usr/bin/curl -s http://www.yourwebsite.com/catalog/admin/sitemonitor.php?instance=1 Cheers, Chuck

    Hi Jack, I figured out what was wrong. The cron example in the readme.txt has an '&', but the correct syntax should be '?'. Thus it works fine when I changed it to: .../sitemonitor.php?instance=1. Just letting you know so you can correct the readme.txt example to: php /home/username/public_html/catalog/admin/sitemonitor.php?instance=X. BTW, I was wondering why the report keeps showing "New Files: Found a new file named admin/sitemonitor_reference_0.php", even though I just ran the 'Delete Reference File'. Shouldn't the report show no new or changed files? Cheers, Chuck

    Thanks Jack. The 2 instances run fine manually from the admin, but there seems to be an issue with the cron jobs running multiple instances. I setup 2 separate cron jobs for the 2 instances 0 & 1, but both reports are coming out for instance 0. Have you tried running multiple instances via cron? Here is the syntax I'm running: .../catalog/admin/sitemonitor.php&instance=0 and .../catalog/admin/sitemonitor.php&instance=1 Is this the correct syntax? FYI, I'm running the sitemonitor_hacker_cron and several other cron jobs successfully. Any idea what's wrong? Thanks, Chuck

    Thanks Jack. I split it into 2 runs and now it works fine. Might be a good thing to note into the instructions. Quick question: As I split the directories into the 2 separate instances, can I assume if I exclude a directory (ie, admin), all the sub-directories within admin are also excluded, or do I need to explicitly list all the sub-directories too? Thanks for your help! Chuck

    Great contribution! Thanks for all the hard work! I was using version 2.6 for over a year with no issues. I just upgraded to version 2.8 for the better security features, but now it's timing out or running out of memory. I keep increasing the time and memory limits in the php.ini, but even though that helps it run longer, it eventually times out or runs out of memory. I have all the same config settings in v2.8 that I had in v2.6 (ie, the same excluded directories). But with v2.8, unless I exclude the image directory, I cannot get it to complete the run. Can you please check what changed from v2.6 to v2.8 that would cause the same store to run so much longer? Thanks again for great contribution. Chuck

    Full Catalog Backup

    Great contribution! Everything works fine, but when the catalog backup finishes I get this error message: [an error occurred while processing this directive] When I go back to the catalog backup page, I see that the backup worked fine, but I am just wondering why I get this error message, rather than a message telling me the backup was successful. Regards, Chuck
  11. Hi Sam, I am having this same problem "Generation Error: Missing SID Please Refresh browser". My site has been working fine with this add-on for over a year and I have not made any changes to the site in several months, but now it's getting the error. Per the documentation, I checked the anti_robotreg table and there are 4 entries in the table. I then tried running http://www.yourdomain.com/catalog/validation_png.php?rsid=with each of the 4 session ids, and all 4 got the error. I called HostMonster to validate what you suggested (GD library, XBM & jpeg support), and all are enabled. They said nothing has changed on their end with these items. Here are some host details: Server OS: Linux 2.6.28-10.40.intel.E1000E.BHsmp HTTP Server: Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS) mod_ssl/2.2.15 0.9.8l DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 PHP Version: 5.2.13 (Zend: 2.2.0) Database: MySQL 5.1.47 Any idea what is wrong? Thanks, Chuck

    QBI Quickbooks Import

    Hi Adam, I ran some tests and it writes to the database just fine. The problem is the $stage variable and all the config variables are never getting set when the qbi_config.php program is recalled after pressing the Update button. Can you just let me know where these config variables are supposed to get set when the program restarts after pressing Update? I will try to debug it from there. Thanks, Chuck
  13. I installed the Easy Enable and Disable Product Categories. It works well, except in the admin/categories when I disable a category, the category is then displayed twice for the two languages I use (English & Spanish). It also does not let me edit a category unless the category is active. Does anybody have a solution?
  14. Thanks Scott. This fixed the "Next Ten Results" button. Cheers, Chuck

    QBI Quickbooks Import

    Adam, I am having the same problem as Kane. It does not save the configuration when I press Update. Just as Kane did, I had to manually run the SQL to create the tables. But now I am also stuck on the Configure page. There are no errors in the error log file related to QBI. I am not sure if this helps, but in the qbi_config.php on line 34, the IF logic is never true, so the program never goes into where the update is performed. I am not sure where the $stage variable and the other config fields are suppose to be set, but in my system they are all null. Thanks, Chuck
