    I installed MySQL and PHP and now no one can get on from the outside. *sigh*

    AND I'm not sure I installed them properly. I'm just the web developer. I wish someone else would take care of this stuff for me . . .

    It was cleared up by noon, but I seriously considered leaving right after that.

    It's been a long time since I made mud pies :thumbs:

    Did you figure out what went wrong? I've never had any serious problems with PHP/MySQL, although admittedly I rarely use it on windows. I do have a SBS 2003 server here at the office that is running it with no problems.

    It wasn't me!

    Some switch got thrown by one of the IT guys that required log-in permission to view the site. *whew*

    WebDevs need to know PhP and MySQL, you could outsource the work to me if you wish :)

    mmmmm I've been trying to learn, but it would be easier if I didn't have to teach every day too :D

    I plan to figure it all out, but the word Eventually really comes to mind.

    I had the domain years ago and then lost it, now I have it back, it seems to be being spammed from all over the place. I have an email account setup for it but only give it out to friends and clients. I might setup a mailer form on the site but to be honest I think the service is more personal over the telephone.
