Increasing the PHP file upload limit for phpMyAdmin on IIS/FastCGI [SOLVED]

Recently I encountered a somewhat unusual web host. They were running FastCGI/PHP on MS IIS and they needed their PHP file upload limits increased. This is trivial on a normal PHP installation, but it took a bit more sleuthing to determine the proper location(s) for php.ini on this IIS install. For reference, here are the locations: C:\Program Files\PHP\v7.4\php.ini C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\v5.3\php.ini The changes needed were: upload_max_filesize = 200M post_max_size =200M A few tips: Make the changes to the proper php.ini

Enable PHP error reporting on Turnkey LAMP Stack

Recently while using Turnkey Linux I had some PHP scripts that were totally blank. This was just a local test server and I had a pretty good idea there were some PHP errors so I enabled PHP error reporting. If you are on a production server you would probably NOT want to do this. However, if you are like me and just doing some testing, here are the steps to enable error reporting: PHP error reporting is disabled – won’t

Data truncated for column ‘status’ at row 1 [SOLVED]

Recently I encountered the following error: Data truncated for column ‘status’ at row 1 This was specifically in a PHP based web hotel/reservations app that uses MySQL for the database backend. When trying to add a new dropdown option value of ‘departed’, the form submission would always fail with the aforementioned error. Thankfully, the solution was easy once I checked the table/field definitions. The column ‘status’ was of type enum and thus needed to have the ‘departed’ value specifically enumerated in
