How to make a iPage domain work with a different host?

Click Here To View All Answers...


My 1st question is: How to make a iPage domain work with a different host? Hoping for any answer. Another question... I tried searching a couple of different ways for info on what I want to do and didn't get anywhere. If there is a thread or a contribution that exists I would love to be pointed in the right direction..

Is there a way to pull the link to a product description page or a "buy now" button dynamically into offsite (onsite but in a different location) pages? For example, I have a gallery of photographs and I want them to link back to osc product page, preferably, or buy now, if it is easier to accomplish. But I don't want to build the links individually, I'd rather they could be called somehow, the product id would be the photo name, or the photo name minus the extension..

Could I do it with a search string? And have the search pull in the photo name dynamically?.

Thanks in advance for any pointers!.

Debbie.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Here's an idea....

The osCAffiliate program has that "build-a-link" feature which can link to a specific product page. Maybe there is something there that might help..

Good Luck..

Hummm... there's another idea to check out....

Thanks! Brainstorming usually helps solve challenges..

On the Catalog Anywhere contribution: the catalog.php file contains the database name, user password etc. - Instructions pasted below. My question is: Would't this pose a security risk or am I missing something here? Seems I could look at the page source & obtain the database information....

1) Make the changes at the top of the catalog.php file as follows:.

$db_server = ""; //database server.

Enter the location of your MySQL DB (usually Localhost).

$db_user = ""; //database user.

Enter your username.

$db_pass = ""; //database password.

Enter your password.

$db_name = ""; //database name.

Enter your database name.[/COLOR]..

Wow - that is dug up from quite some time ago!.

I have never even looked at the contribution - just knew of it and tried to help Loxly.

....... so, what security issues there may be I am not sure.... however, the PHP source code cannot be viewed by looking at the page source - you will only see what PHP outputs. The file would obviously need the correct permissions set on it..

I don't think so, this puts a whole page of your catalog somewhere. I'll look at the code though and see if it can be modified to work. It's somewhere to start anyway!.

Thanks!..
