Moving a website to PHP 7 and 8

Published: 2021-09-24

The time has come to say goodbye to PHP version 5. Although the CodeIgniter software will run on the new PHP version I prefer not to risk that the day will come when PHP version 5 will be disabled due to incompatibility. That is why I am moving all my sites to CodeIgniter version 4. I really like the framework development and the direction in which its creators are going. Currently in CodeIgniter it is the same as in Yii, in the root directory there is only index.php and .htaccess file. Everything else such as: controllers, models and view files are placed in the area inaccessible from a web browser, that is outside the public_html directory. So far I have moved services such as Download and OpenSource. By the end of September I will relocate all the sites that are left. (more ...)

Technical announcement regarding the server

Published: 2021-08-08

The company I have purchased hosting from has informed me that due to the need for technical work, the hosting service will be temporarily unavailable as planned from: 2021-08-14 23:00:00 to 2021-08-15 03:00:00 (GMT + 01:00).

Message from Hyperreal regarding the use of Facebook

Published: 2021-08-01

Welcome everyone! We urge you not to use Facebook to discuss psychoactive substances or their use! There are several reasons for this: Facebook has long been an advertising delivery platform - you have probably already encountered the statement that "the user is a Facebook product sold to advertisers". Facebook is a for-profit company, meaning the sole purpose of their existence is to pay Mark and his team. For the above reason, everything you do on Facebook serves only to profile you and your interests in order to more accurately deliver ads from Facebook Inc. clients. Vocabulary tracking algorithms work out what you talk about most and match your profile to the advertiser's target audience. This system can be hacked for purposes other than marketing - as the Camb (more ...)

Adding the possibility to download applications in software presentation

Published: 2021-06-30

Since several people have suggested that I add the possibility of downloading applications to the software documentation so that it would be easier to try them out I noticed that indeed these people are right. As they say the shoemaker walks in hollow shoes. From now on it is possible to download the latest published file for the application and go to the entire download section. I hope that this will make it easier for people interested in my programs to test them and use them permanently in their homes or businesses. (more ...)
