( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks for all the feedback from all of you.

I know it's a very general question, and impossible to answer, but you are monks after all. I really appreciate the speed of replies.

I have not decided on an ISP yet, but are looking for something in the UK with full CGI and MySQL support. at the moment Internetters seems like a good bet. I would appreciate other possible ISP's. I have worked with Internetters before, so that is probably why I would go with them. They hosted a site which I developed for my day job and it seems to be OK.

My biggest problems are:
1. I only have FTP access, no Telnet.
2. I don't have access to the Apache error files

Up till now it hasn't been the biggest problems since I developed everything on a development machine and tested it before I uploaded it. The development and hosting environments aren't exactly the same though, which creates a problem now and then.

I am however a bit worried about MySQL development on a remote host with no error logs. Is there any way I can see what is not working without the ubiquitous Internal Server Error message?

My next question regards searching. If I want to search through the MySQL DB, is it going to be as easy as:

SELECT * FROM jobs WHERE creation_date < $search_max_date

or do I need something like that you suggested?

It's been a while since I did any SQL, but I'm sure that it's not going to be the biggest problem.

Here are a list of what I think needs to be done: (My solution in brackets, comments would be appreciated.)

1. User regestration ( .htaccess files, MySQL table for user profile from HTML form, basic CGI)
2. Employer registration (same as 1)
3. Upload jobs (MySQL table for jobs, linked to employer table. html form, basic CGI)
4. Remove jobs (same as 3)
5. Search (???, MySQL SELECT queries?)
6. Credit Card Billing for employers (No idea..., maybe use something like NetBanx, help would be appreciated.)

thanks for everything

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
