Posted by starams5 on 24 June 2017 - 02:19 PM

Thank you Les you are the Best !!


But the social engine plugin are broken, In fact I can acces to fils or folder of plugin

The extension for groups or forum (for example) are .1

You can update this package  ?


Hi. If you extract the .tar you get a file with no extension. Add a .zip or .rar to the file and extract it again. Hope that helps.

#140276 How to install ImageMagick and imagick on Windows server (Working 100%)

Posted by starams5 on 12 May 2017 - 12:45 AM

This tutorial explains how to install ImageMagick and imagick on a Windows server



1. Download and install ImageMagick for Windows, get .dll version.



Example : ImageMagick-<version>-Q16-x64-dll.exe

During the installation, don't forget to check the option to "Add application directory to your system path"

Once the setup finishes, you can test Imagick in a new command prompt:

magick -version

2. Download Imagick for PHP

Now navigate to the Imagick package in the PECL website and select the "DLL" (Windows icon) from the latest available version.



Exaample: php_imagick-3.4.3-5.5-ts-vc11-x64

Copy php_imagick.dll file and paste in the php/ext folder

 enable the extension in your php.ini file by adding the following line:


3. Download required Imagick binaries


Example: ImageMagick-6.9.3-7-vc11-x64

Once the content of the file is extracted, open the bin folder and copy all the files (EXCEPT ImageMagickObject.dll) and then paste the copied files into the apache/bin folder.

Restart apache, and check phpinfo

#131738 How To Stop Spam Sign-ups

Posted by starams5 on 21 January 2015 - 01:30 AM

Create profile question in admin and name it "Please put a check in the box" (or whatever).  Done, automated spammers can't check the box on the sign-up page where the question is.  Wasn't sure it this was shared already. :s

#130685 Installing Responsive Filemanager in Social Engine

Posted by starams5 on 17 November 2014 - 05:09 PM

FIX: Responsive Filemanager breaks "Announcements" TinyMCE editor in the admin area.  Go to line 56 .


Replace this:

protected $_config = array(
    'mode' => 'textareas',
    'plugins' => array(
    'table', 'fullscreen', 'media', 'preview', 'paste', 'print', 'code', 'image', 'emoticons',
    'textcolor', 'jbimages', 'responsivefilemanager'

With this:

 protected $_config = array(
    'mode' => 'textareas',
    'plugins' => array(
    'table', 'fullscreen', 'media', 'preview', 'paste', 'print', 'code', 'image', 'emoticons',
    'textcolor', 'jbimages'

Alternatively, you can just remove this from the end:

, 'responsivefilemanager'

#125700 Basic Security for SE

Posted by starams5 on 16 January 2014 - 03:56 AM

Ah, THAT kind of aliasing. Gotya. Now it makes sense.
Yep, can never be 100% secure, but you dont want to make it too easy for an opportunist either right?

That's right, all you can do is make it as hard as possibly for them.

#125695 Basic Security for SE

Posted by starams5 on 15 January 2014 - 11:37 PM

Thanks. Im not sure I understand what you mean by alias. Can you give me some hints and I will go research...

In a nut shell ... in Apache you can set up an alias in the httpd.conf file, I don't know anything about Lightspeed. Hacker web bots will scan your site for vulnerabilities eventually (disable indexing). Most are looking for WP site, no need to worry about them. But when they start scanning for phpmyadmin (check server logs), and you've taken no actions to protect it, you could possibly be in trouble if it's somebody who knows what they're doing.

When you create an alias, all your doing is renaming the phpmyadmin directory. Give it some crazy name no one will think of. There should an alias setting in your web server config file, you'll have to change the name there to match the name of the phpmyadmin directory.

As for disabling indexing on your site, see Apache example below (found in web server config file). The "-" sign in front means the option is disabled, no "-" means enabled.

Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks -Includes ExecCGI

Do all you can to protect your site ... but nothing %100 effective, just ask Facebook or twitter.

#125678 Basic Security for SE

Posted by starams5 on 15 January 2014 - 01:18 PM

What basic measures do you take to protect your SE site? I'm running my site on Linux CentOS with Litespeed web server....
Looking for pointers in any of the following areas....

.htaccess settings
MySQL: are there permissions that can be revoked from the SE user account?
File permissions, which directories to lock down?
Any other general, basic security tips appreciated... reps given too of course!

I'm on a totally different setup ... Windows, Apache. See if any of these tips help. Someone with a similar setup can probably help you better.

Use an alias on phpmyadmin.
Disable indexing.
Make your .htaccess files read only.
Set your web server up to not allow anyone outside of your www directory.
Password protect phpmyadmin (no brainer)

There are tutorials all over the internet on how to secure your web server. Some of the measure you find may be good for some, but not all websites. Before going live with a new security tip, test it ... because it just might shut your site down or cause something to stop working.

#120146 how to speed up se4

Posted by starams5 on 07 June 2013 - 02:31 PM

I agree with SPQR, your desktop specs aren't going to cut it on a live site with traffic. I'm still on my first server which I built two years ago, and no where near capacity. The only bottle-neck is the connection, 27Mb down, 7 up. The connection starts to slow down at 450-500 users online. CPU usage 1-3%, memory 12% usage.

Mem - 16Gb Kingston DDR3 (Server)
x2 Intel Xeon E5620 Processors (12Mb Cache)
