Technical Support / Can you help me update my website?
« Last post by tmazanec1 on September 22, 2018, 02:24:18 pm »
I last updated my website in April 2014, when I still had a PC.
Now I have a Mac and don't know how to do it.
Any help?

Hi and thanks again for the response:

In response to Question 1:
I am hoping to make something of an "Official" blog that I can write articles related to the photos and videos I take. Being a man on a fixed income some of these services (eg: Wordpress) ask for money to host these ad-free sites or becoming a pro or core member which I cannot afford plus there are a lot of benefits to Wordpress that appeal to Videographers and Photographers which I admire. I thought of your service because I have seen it advertised online so I thought I'd take a shot at it.

Now for Question 2:
I used to manage web sites for individuals so I am pretty fluent in FTP and I am familiar with installing and managing Wordpress as a friend had me help him out with it once so yes I do have a bit of technical skills in me

I hope this answers your questions and thanks again for reading my application

Sorry I'm so slow to respond to this. It's been ages since someone last applied for an account, so the forum isn't nearly as active as it used to be.

Nice photos! You've clearly been at it a while!

That said, I'd like to ask what plans or needs you have that make a better fit for your site than any of the services more directly dedicated to art/photography. E.g. what're you planning/hoping to do that you couldn't more easily do on sites like flickr, photobucket, deviantart, or even itself?

Secondly, the services here are pretty low level. You get file and shell access, but you'd have to install and maintain wordpress (and anything else you use) on your own. Do you feel you have the technical skill to be able to do that?

I am a hobbyist photographer from Chatham-Kent, ON Canada. I take pictures quite often of anything ranging from birds and wildlife to local events and landmarks across Canada and other places. I am hoping to have some space on Xepher so I can have a wordpress oriented site to share my photography with more people. (My stuff is currently hosted on Flickr) So, without any further ado:

Username: throughdanielslens


Site Description: Photography and videography by Daniel Swan featuring posts that tell audiences the stories behind the captures

My current homepage is my Flickr Account:

The current site has many photos that I have taken some from as far back as 1997 and some as recent as a few weeks ago.

So, hope you like my photos and think I have something to offer your audience, and hope I can get a site hosted here.
Thank you for your time in reading my application. :)

I sent you an email, and the site seems to be working, but just wanted to follow up here, see if you got it sorted.

PHP 5.6 is approaching its end of life, and is no longer receiving regular updates from upstream. That means it's time to move on to the next version, which is PHP 7 (6 was experimental and doesn't count.) I've updated the server to PHP 7.2, and if you're using older PHP software, you may notice errors appearing on your site. If you see messages about mysql (specifically mysql_connect being an "undefined function") then there's a temporary workaround you can add. In any PHP file you need to still use the old MySQL functions, you can add this line right at the start of the PHP section (just after the <?php tag ideally):

Code: [Select]
Ideally, if you didn't write the code, you should just update to a newer version that supports php 7 and not use this. But until this, this workaround might help. If you have other problems (or notice errors on any of the main pages) please let me know. My own code is using this shim, as it's ANCIENT, and I don't have the patience to rewrite it quite yet.

Can attest this works, just happened to check the forum saw the message, went to check the site to update the WP install... lo and behold. :B
