Got a question, hope someone can answer... I just bought a iPage site and I dont know where to start? Thanks for any answer or 2. 2nd question I got is.. Im not sure whats happened but now when ever I modify anything in the admin area it basically erases that related information from the database and wont update.

Eg.

Select option true or false for any field and when the page relods there is nothing there in the spot where it should say true or false after checking the db the field has been emptied and I have to manually edit database..

This is happening with everything, I cant add products as it wont accept file for upload(image) and when I click update it clears all existing product information..

I have no idea what I must have done.

Any ideas would very muchly appreciated..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

Yep I found my problem bout 10 mins ago it was a .htaccess file I added this morning that changed the url from domain.com to www.domain.com to aid my ssl certificate, now I have to find another way around that problem. I disabled the .htaccess file and it all worked again in the back end..

Comment #2

Altec, how did you disable the .htaccess file ? I don't know anything about this kind of file...

Comment #3

I just renamed it so it wouldnt be read.

Eg changed from .htaccess to blah.

Then everything werked again..

Comment #4

Why use an htaccess file, change your configure.php file from.

Http://domain.com.

To.

Http://www.domain.com..

Comment #5

Thank you, but my problem doesn't come from the .htaccess file. We just had nearly the same problem but for different reasons. You found yours, but I didn't find mine....

Anyone can help ?

Hi DjebbZ.

I have 2 textareas that I have added to customers.php in admin. They are doing the same thing. If I enter the information in CreateAcct.php and accountedit.php it updates the database and displays on the refresh. When I go to admin and view the customer the data is there. If I cancel and reenter edit mode the data is there. However ...

Here is my code snippet for one of the two boxes..

<tr>.

             <td class="main">.

<?php.

              if ($processed == true) {.

              echo $cInfo->customers_medicationstep_draw_hidden_field('customers_medications');.

                 } else {.

               echo tep_draw_textarea_field('medications', 'soft', 70, 5, $cInfo->customers_medications, (($file_writeable) ? '' : 'readonly'))'&nbsp;'(tep_not_null(ENTRY_MEDICATIONS_TEXT) ? '<span class="inputRequirement">'ENTRY_MEDICATIONS_TEXT'</span>': '');.

                 }.

?>.

             </td>.

             </tr>.

Any ideas? I am sure I have overlooked something obvious ... as usual...

Sorry I'm not gonna answer you.

But just group the questions..

My problem is similar, but everything is working apart from an option I added in the administration tool, group : configuration. It's a theme system i'm developping and i'm gonna submit it as soon as it's finished (it shouldn't be long)..

My problem is the same than Altec, when I wanna update my option (choose a theme among several) the value is just emptied from the database. And everything else is working..

I suppose it comes from /admin/configuration.php, in case "save" : $HTTP_POST_VARS['configuration_value'] might be empty for my specific option and filled for anything else. (Altec : it could be the reason, i'm not sure).

Do U have any idea ? I'm sure it will help both Altec and me...
