Common Problems with MySQL and PHP

July 13, 2006 § Leave a comment

We get some common problems during our development work by PHP/MySQL. Here is a short list of common problems with MySQL and PHP along with possible solutions:

  • Error: Maximum Execution Time Exceeded: This is a PHP limit; go into the php.ini file and set the maximum execution time up from 30 seconds to something higher, as needed. It is also not a bad idea to double the RAM allowed per script to 16MB instead of 8MB.
  • Fatal error: Call to unsupported or undefined function mysql_connect() in …: This means that your PHP version isn’t compiled with MySQL support. You can either compile a dynamic MySQL module and load it into PHP or recompile PHP with built-in MySQL support. This process is described in detail in the PHP manual.
  • Error: Undefined reference to ‘uncompress’: This means that the client library is compiled with support for a compressed client/server protocol. The fix is to add -lz last when linking with -lmysqlclient.
  • Error: Client does not support authentication protocol: This is most often encountered when trying to use the older mysql extension with MySQL 4.1.1 and later. Possible solutions are: downgrade to MySQL 4.0; switch to PHP 5 and the newer mysqli extension; or configure the MySQL server with –old-passwords. (See “Client does not support authentication protocol”, for more information.)

    Google Checkout API :: Another Option for Online Transaction

    July 6, 2006 § Leave a comment

    Google Checkout is a checkout process that you integrate with your website, enabling your customers to buy from you quickly and securely, using a single username and password. Once they do, you can use Google Checkout to charge their credit cards, process their orders, and receive payment in your bank account.

    Google Checkout works with Google’s search advertising program, AdWords, to increase your sales and minimize your expenses. Shoppers who see the Google Checkout badge on your AdWords ads will more easily find you when they search, and for every dollar you spend on AdWords, you can process $10 in sales for free.

    Google Checkout will spread light to the world of online transaction — no doubt.
    Google is greatly serving the online peoples and making life easier.

I got 33.33% votes among all classes nominated in May, 2006. My thanks to the users those liked my class and voted me.

    Graph Coloring is one of the most important branch of Computer Science. Efficient graph coloring is very muh useful in many applications. Graph Coloring even can encrypt huge data. I have done a bit research on that. My paper “Graph Coloring for Encryption : A New Approach of Huge Data Secretion” was accepted and published in the proceedings of International Conference on Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering (ICEECE), 2003. This was also an innovative work and has been marked so. You can find a lot of innovative research topics in Graph Coloring. So lets start innovative works.

    The winners ranking list (of month May,2006) is here:

    PHP Classes authority has given me a badge to let me mention that my
