You should NEVER put variables from user input straight into mysql. You should ALWAYS use mysql_escape_string() first. so that code should look like [php] if($_GET['p'] >0) { $offset = ($_GET['p']-1)*10; $offset = " LIMIT $offset, 10"; } else { $offset = " LIMIT 0, 10"; } $message = mysql_query("...

here's another idea. This method is probably better
PHP Code: [ Select ]
 if ($number < 10) {$output = '00'.$number;} elseif ($number < 100) {$output = '0'.$number;} else {$output = $number;}
(notice that you don't need to do an && because elseif's are only executed if none of the previous if's...

Post Posted: July 3rd, 2004, 7:09 pm

I haven't tested this, and it's probably not the best method. It's the first thing I thought of:

PHP Code: [ Select ]
$output = '';
for ($i = 1; $i++; $i < 3)
if ($i < strlen($number))
    $output .= '0';
$output .= $number;
  2. $output = '';
  4. for ($i = 1; $i++; $i < 3)
  6. {
  8. if ($i < strlen($number))
  10. {
  12.     $output .= '0';
  14. }
  16. }
  18. $output .= $number;

if there are a lot of pages involved, then in the longrun, learning PHP would save you a lot of time.

But remember that you still need to use HTML, even if you use PHP as well. Your PHP code that is embedded into HTML.

Post Posted: July 3rd, 2004, 4:25 am

2 that you want.

1. AWStats (runs on your server, requires PHP and quite possibly mysql)
2. Data Archiving Services (runs remotely)

those two are the best out there IMO, and I'm sure many here will agree.

Post Posted: July 3rd, 2004, 4:08 am

yes, but how much time you will need to spend depends how many pages you have and how they are designed. You are much better off doing it dynamically in PHP now than doing it in HTML and converting it later. PHP is not hard. In fact, PHP is quite simple. It would probably only take me an hour or two...

that is not too difficult to do. PHP/MySQL is ideal for that type of job.

To search them do a sql query something like:
select kit_id, kit_data
from kits

the WHERE part is the important part as far as searching them is concerned.

rtm, the security risk depends on whether or not any of the variables in the eval come from user input. If they do, you have a security risk (unless you are VERY careful to properly escape them and such) If your motivation is easy editing, then do something like this: [php] <?php $string = 'this ...

that's a pretty crappy method. The proper way to do it is to use SQL queries that only return the results you want. The way to do that with mysql is 'limit'. Look it up in the mysql manual. BTW, the reason it is so terrible is that mysql still has to return the unwanted rows to the php script. This ...

I don't get an A, E, or C, so that would say I have a northwood with a 500mhz bus? I don't think so though because Intel's utility says I have an 800mhz bys, which is what I asked for when I bought this PC.

I want to know whether or not i should overclock my PC, and I read that northwoods can be overclocked much more safely than prescotts. So how do I tell which one I have? I downloaded a prog off Intel's site that gives info about the CPU but it didn't tell me which of those it was.
