    I don't know if it's appropriate for your application or not but you could always trigger it on a page call...ie someone visits one of your store pages and the call gets executed.

    burt reacted to ArtcoInc in PHP and the newest cPanel   
    I have two live shops. One is running the Community Edition osC v2.3.3.4 (yes, it's that old). The other is running the pre-gold Community Edition osC v2.3.4. I am working on a new site using Phoenix, but that's still in development.
    I had configured my host to use PHP v5.6 on my shops, and everything was running fine.
    My host recently did an unannounced upgrade to the cPanel tool set which, unfortunately, upgraded all of my shops to PHP v7.3. Needless to say, there were problems.
    The first issue I noticed was that I could no longer run the Security Check module in Admin for either shop. I verified that the code against a backup to make sure that it hadn't been hacked. It wasn't until I ran the Server Info module in Admin did I notice that the version of PHP had been changed to v7.3.
    I logged into my host's cPanel, and discovered that the oldest version of PHP available was v7.0. I rolled back to v7.0, but that did not fix the issues I was having. I contacted tech support through their chat function <grumble, grumble>. I explained the problem, and asked if my sites could be rolled back to PHP v5.6. Yes, but not through cPanel. The new version of cPanel only supports PHP versions 7.0 and up. The tech support person was able to roll back my sited to PHP v5.6 by editing the .htaccess file(s) for all of the sites. They are back up and running now. Server Info shows I'm running PHP v5.6, even though cPanel says I'm running PHP v7.0.
    I hope this info may assist someone who may run into a similar issue.

    There is absolutely no problem with discussions about other carts, so long as the discussion is in the context of us here at osCommerce. 
    For example, there would be absolutely no problem in someone asking;
    At the moment I am using "whatever-cart", I'm thinking about changing to osc...does osc have XYZ feature? And no problem in someone replying;
    It doesn't have XYZ, but if you install osc and then download this addon...you will then have something very like XYZ There is a problem in that person given advice such as;
    Keep using "whatever-cart" It's a matter of common sense.  Does the reply that is being made "help the situation" with regards to osC gaining positivity.  If yes:  post it.  If no:  dont post it.

    My advice is, always;
    make for your own needs if possible try to do it without core code changes
    this simply makes things easier in the future for upgrading
    also makes it easier to share with others If it was me;
    I'd create a spreadsheet with the ID and full name of the taxonomy - spreadsheets are easy to keep updated if google decide to change taxonomies... I'd create a dropdown box using the spreadsheet data
    this box would do exactly as your input box performs, just update the category_id appropriately Keep It Simple.

    @Garret Krampe let's stop with the drama.  I think we all understand that you made a series of sub-optimal choices, now you have to take a 30 minute step back and try to rescue the situation;
    how long is the timeline until you need a working site of that list you posted which are "super important must haves" and which are "want it, but not immediately" Once you have those in place, then decide which piece of software comes closest to your needs in the short term.  That may or may not be a version of osCommerce.
