Is anyone running a Joomla 1.5.26 CMS site.

I am having a little security problem.

The reason I still have this site is because, if I upgrade to latest Joomla, many of my extensions will no longer work and there are none to replace them.

I opened up the computer and managed to find the CMOS battery. I measured the voltage and found it to be 2.3V down from 3V so I bought a new one. Before I installed the new battery, I shorted out the CMOS Reset pin to reset all CMOS settings. I put the battery in and then closed the computer, powere...

With respect to the CMOS battery.

I assume it is OK to just take it out
Will anything get screwed up if I take the battery out.
Is there a time limit on how long th CMOS battery can be removed.

I just do not want to corrupt anything and make matters worse

Please advise

How can it be the cables.

I never opened the computer until it started to act up
Then I only changed position of cable to other SATA port.

I am not sure what to ask my host. If they are blocking outbound port 25, how would I convince them to open it. As mentioned, I really do not want to send emails. All I want to do is to be able to validate an email address. Is it possible for them to block email data but still allow outbound connect...

I still do not understand the problem. I do not want to send emails. I only want to try to validate an email address. You indicated previously that with the web source I was using: "That is only for inbound on port 25 though. The test that you are running is from another server that is trying t...

I modified the script to include the OZZU mail server and put it on both websites.

Each website was not able to connect to your mail server.
Got error 110, Connection Timed Out in both cases.

But this is the problem I have been enquiring about in this thread.
I can connect locally, but not remotely.

Post Posted: September 12th, 2012, 8:27 pm

I used your script and changed it to echo a message back.

On both websites port 25 is open and available.

Actually, I had also used a similar script to check port 25 which was found to be open and available on both websites.

Post Posted: September 12th, 2012, 4:03 pm

When I do use the website resource I mentioned I can communicate with both SMTP servers on both websites and I do get responses back from each server when I connect and then use the standard HELO, MAIL FROM, RCPT TO, RSET and QUIT commands. The servers respond to each command I send. If port 25 were...

Post Posted: September 12th, 2012, 12:16 pm

I have not seen any further responses.

Does this mean I am out of luck

Post Posted: September 8th, 2012, 2:44 pm

checking inbound is basically what I want. I want to be able to verify emails like they do. I have a script that when someone registers on my site, I check for proper syntax and that an MX mail domain exists. As a last test, I want to connect to the smtp server to see if it actually exists. I realiz...

Post Posted: September 7th, 2012, 5:28 pm

I used a script myself to check that port 25 was open on both websites and it was.

A couple of posts back I indicated that the following url

could access both mx hosts on port 25 with no problem.

I do not think port 25 is the problem

Post Posted: September 7th, 2012, 11:32 am


Both websites are hosted on different hosting account.

First I used my home computer to ping both websites.
I was able to ping one but not the other from my PC

I then went to each website and pinged each website from the other and that was OK. Each website was able to ping the other.

Hi Zealous I found a website where you could enter the SMTP host and port number for testing at: [url] [/url] I entered my SMTP host names and port 25 and it was able to connect to both hosts on port 25. If they can connect I should somehow also be a...

Post Posted: September 5th, 2012, 11:16 am

The only ports open on both websites is port 25

I have no control over the other ports.

Is there another way, other than fsockeopen to connect to the smtp server.

There must be something as other websites can connect to both of my smtp servers on both websites

Post Posted: September 3rd, 2012, 1:32 pm

Hi Zealous I was able to figure out my script by adding stream timeout and and HTML <br /> break as follows: [code] if ($con) { while (($buffer = fgets($con,4096)) !== false) { //Set stream ouput time so doesn't take forever stream_set_timeout($con, 5); echo $buffer."<br />"...

Post Posted: September 2nd, 2012, 11:00 pm

I have what I hope is a simple question. When I do get to the smtp server, I can get back 1, 2 or 3 220 responses dependent on the server. Right now to get the response I use:
Code: [ Select ]
echo trim(fgets($con));
however, the above only gets the first response. To get all 3 responses I need to get...

I went to a couple of websites that verify email addresses by connecting to the SMTP servers:

I put my script on two other separate shared hosting websites. If I use the script on each website to connect to the mail servers for the website, I can connect to both no problem. If I try to connect from one website to the other website's mail server then I always get the 110 Connection timed out ...

Post Posted: September 1st, 2012, 11:09 am

Hi Zealous I don't know if this makes any difference but both websites are on two different shared web hosting sites. No files permissions are needed. On each website both have chmod of 644 Checked port 25 on both websites and they were both open. I have no idea about firewall on server allowing con...

Post Posted: July 11th, 2012, 12:58 pm

I think I understand now why due to the reloading which makes sense. You state if they are all in the same form element this will not happen. If I combine both forms into one, I will still have two submit buttons. As you stated, since page gets reloaded, wouldn't this still clear data depending on w...

I still do not understand

Even if they are ignored, what about the values that had already been found and displayed in the first form

Why are they being cleared

Post Posted: July 11th, 2012, 9:48 am

When I send from one form, results are displayed

Whne I send from second form, results are displayed but results from first form disappear.

Why is this happening since I am not resending first form
I would have expected results to still be visible

I am still baffled as to why this is the only way I can get the images to be displayed

I would have expected the img src link to work also but it does not display.

If I paste the image URL into a browser:

I can see the image

Any suggestions

  1. <head>
  2. <base href="" />
  3. </head>
  4. <body>
  5. <img src="pic.gif" />
  6. </body>

It did not work. Would not display images
