I have been using my HOSTS file for years to dummy out ad sites by adding entries like 127.0.0.1 www.ukbanners.com A while back I installed [Unchecky](https://unchecky.com/), a program which automatically unchecks all of those software extras that some installers like to enable by default (like McAfee). Today I noticed nthat Unchecky added entries like 0.0.0.0 media.opencandy.com to the end of my HOSTS file. A google search resulted in conflicting and ambiguous information as to the use of 0.0.0.0. The most complete explanations (in geek-speak) are usually of the "it depends" variety. Can anyone explain, in non-technical terms, the difference between …

So i started creating a basic website for a small project im working on. I took a 2 week break where i left everything in working condition. Decided to load up WAMP server today afternoon and as soon as i try to access my index file i get the error: The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. This is my index code. <?php session_start(); require_once('../Controller/loginController.php'); if(isset($_SESSION['user_session'])){ header("location:accountSummary.php"); } ?> …

Hi all, I need some help with this problem. I have a function that has 2 fields, name of the folder to be created and the featured image to be put inside. This code works fine online, but when I imported it on my localhost (MAC Mavericks+XAMPP), the code creates the folder but no longer uploads the image inside it. $ftp_server = "localhost"; $ftp_conn = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or die("Could not connect to $ftp_server"); $login = ftp_login($ftp_conn, "AdminUsername", "AdminPassword"); 1. I thought of permissions problems on the folder, so I set the permissions on 777 on HTDOCS for all, but it is …

Web.py outputs 0.0.0.0:8080. On windows, localhost and 0.0.0.0 work. But on mavericks, localhost doesn't work! 0.0.0.0 works, though. Can someone explain what 0.0.0.0 is? Why does web.py say you can enter a ip and port in command line and it will run there? (You can't run on someone else's ip,can you?)

Okay so I've been going through my HTML lately and I discovered that I was still using the <base> element to define my website's base path. I want to get rid of that - I would like to be able to use relative URLs all the time, without having to rely on the <base> element. Now, the problem is that using URLs like "/this/that" doesn't work the way I want it to on "localhost/project". It would lead to "localhost/this/that" instead of to "localhost/project/this/that". I don't want to prepend `<?php echo $site_root_variable; ?>` to all my URLs either. Does anyone know …

Hello Community, I was wondering if there is a way to use some kind of local server such as Wamp, Xampp, easyPHP etc... something like that and set it up so everyone on the same network can access the database on the server. The server will be running on a dedicated server computer (A computer stored in a room running the server), an online database is not an option it needs to be a lan database. F.Y.I: I have never worked with servers before so I don't know how they work I only know what they look like so I …

Hi, can someone please tell me if there is a way to make my server accessible from the outside world? it works pretty well on localhost. I tried port forwarding, opening the ports it uses, but nothing works. I read somewhere that it only allows connection from the same network, but then my question is, what's the point in that? :/ Thanks in advance

Hi. I'm currently developing a CRM in ASP.NET 4.0. It has a database connection that resides on a separate computer. The development and dev-hosting of the site is done locally. Until yesterday everything worked almost flawlessly (except for those part I'm working on), but suddenly all postbacks and redirects slowed almost to a crawl. And for the life of me I can't figure it out. I read one blog that said that it's always a good idea to use the overloads for Response.Redirect, and to enter False as the second argument. So, I changed those in some of the places …
