php serverpackage online creator

Postby thor918 » 2007-09-14 01:28

Okey.
I just created a very easy script using php programming.
I have no idea if anyone would be interested in something like this, but i'm all for sharing ideas. the script requires a webserver with php capabilities.

With this online creator, you could have one package, and just change pchelpware settings in strings (in the file getPackage.php) instead of building the package using the viewer. the server package(singleclick pchelpware exe) is dynamicly put togheter when someone access getPackage.php page.

If you have any questions or some comments, go a head and post theme!
and it would be nice if anyone posts feedback if they find it usefull!

Thanks for the update.
well from the activity on the forum, one could come to the conclusion that the project is dead.. so it's good to hear that it's progress going on.

and for the script. it seems like nobody had use for it.
at least I find it usefull :D
I got sick and tiered to create a new package and upload a new package, when the only change was the ID or connection setting.

hopefully we can see a pchelpware with full vista support soon ;)

problem is with uvnc 1.02 and the dsm plugin not with pchelpware. Also if using encryption with single click you may have issues with vista. The DSM plugin is hit and miss on vista and they are trying to correct that..

thanks for pointing out that it does work in vista.
I just tested it my self, and it seemed to me that it worked without flaws

Hi there Matt.
jeiiii... a comment :p after almost a year after post date

error messages can be deceiving...
have you used any non-english character's in the variables?
does other php-scripts run fine?

I have used this code for near a year now on my server, no problems yet.

Yes, I like it even more that you still be active after a year here ! that's good and not often seen that people check their old topics :)

As far as I can see everything is stock, other script are running OK... I'm debugging now.

Do I need some extra packges on the server for the server itself or PHP maybe ?

At least it's good that it works from your side.

non of the code require any extra packages.
I noticed that I used short tags, so you can at least change <? to <?php

what server do you use? IIS/Apache? windows/linux?

Shorttags is indeed something that can be added, but still, that's no solution yet.


I run

Apache/2.2.8 (Unix)
PHP Version 5.2.5


As you can see linux.

It's really something I can't find out yet, I think we can come to something :)

so you tried with longtags?

My system is running a similar setup:
PHP Version 5.1.2
Server version: Apache/2.0.55
Server built: May 29 2006 01:52:53
Linux Debian based
php: safe_mode Off
php: short_open_tag On

looks like I will have to update my system soon ;)

can you post your test variables?
$customPackage,$sfxPackage,$downloadFilename,$repeater,$ID,$password

If it ain't broken, don' t fix it ;)

Maybe you miss some stuff, but I think you even don' t need it :)

$customPackage,$sfxPackage,$downloadFilename,$repeater,$ID,$password


Mh.. I use your package as stock, so.. like it's in the package you have it for download.

What must I change in in your idea ?

/me is going to check the short/long tags further in the time between.

oh yes. it should work even if the download package is changed. I just tried the 7z-content here. worked without any errors.

the code dosent report any errors with php shorttag support is turned off. it's just posts the whole php.file as it's suppose to do.(I was thinking for a moment that it returned an error)

hmm. the only thing I can recommend is to try, commenting out line by line from the bottom and upwards till you see a change in error code.

I have tried that, if comment the the following line out, I get output of the configTXT in my browser:

header('Content-length: '. filesize($sfxPackage) + filesize($customPackage) + mb_strlen( $configTxt, '8bit') );

So, it echo' s it than, and something there is going wrong.

I was not able to see what goes wrong using var_dump and so on.

Thanks so far already, nice too see this progres.

hmm strange...

what does these return?
Code: Select all
 
   echo filesize($sfxPackage)."<br>";
   echo filesize($customPackage)."<br>";
   echo mb_strlen( $configTxt, '8bit')."<br>";


on my server the total bytecount of the message using the stocked files and vars is this:
Code: Select all
header('Content-length: 394935');


that header is required to have compability according to HTTP spesifications:
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc ... tml#sec4.4
however I may have used another header that conflicts with this line.
as I recall that I struggled a little to have IE follow. there may be a header there just to suite IE :p

I get the following:

98816
295946
170

Everything together makes indeed: 394932

This is weird if you ask me.

OK, I managed to get it done, the Content-length: was not parsed right, so I ripped that part out and seperated it and made a variable of it.

works ok now :)

Just place the stuff in the content length in a variable and place that variable in the content-lenght.

That's all.

Actually we also can check why the contentlength is not parsed right, so I know it's there, maybe we need to place it between () ?

okey then.
it's most likly that php got confused by str, number and +
(perhaps newer php versions are more strict)

so perhaps it's just, like you say and pack the numbers in a ()
or we can have a variabel just for total byte count of the body message, like this
Code: Select all
$Contentlength = filesize($sfxPackage) + filesize($customPackage) + mb_strlen( $configTxt, '8bit');
header("Content-length: $Contentlength");


thanks for your input ;)

Indeed, that is what I do now, I thought to post it later on when I know for sure the way you made it will not work, some PHP guru's thought it also should work.

Maybe you can check it when you upgraded your box ;)

if the code I posted above works for you, there is nothing to dwell about ;) that code is more easier on the eyes to read, so I may change the original download with this change...

Thanks. one bug destroyed/avoided ;)
