  • PHPSC eWeek Interview, by Ben Ramsey
    the open source movement and Linux I was just a little bit surprised to see them interested in covering PHP Today eWeek published the article on their Web site a very quick turn around The article addresses the PHPSC from the angle of security in terms of the recent Santy worm most likely because the author saw this as an excellent way to follow up on an earlier article about the worm bq The formation of the consortium was triggered by the recent Santy worm attack against Web forums running phpBB a message board software written in PHP The problem with this angle is that the PHPSC was announced on December 7 while Santy was released on December 20 Although the Santy worm created some extremely negative press for PHP due mainly to the untimely release of security fixes in the PHP language itself the article is quick to correct this FUD and for that I commend them Nevertheless the creation of the PHPSC could not have been more timely There are many PHP applications out there suffering from poor coding practices and the goal of the PHPSC is to remedy this through educating people and exposing vulnerabilities The article

  • CarneyStudio.com, by Ben Ramsey
    several reasons one of which was to create search engine friendly URLs to help boost their page rank Another was because I wanted all data files to reside outside the Web root as include inc files The PHP logic behind the site calls the specified file mod rewrite allows this to appear as though there s a logical directory structure which there isn t all the data files reside in one directory For example take this URL http www carneystudio com babys first year maternity It s really being rewritten for the application to http www carneystudio com index php cat babys first year subcat maternity Anyone who already knows mod rewrite is probably saying Gee Ben this is all so elementary I agree but it s not something I ve had the luxury of playing with for a while Another reason I chose this particular structure with the data files residing in a directory of their own and outside of the Web root was to allow for a flexible template driven site that is easy to update and even add pages without some sort of CMS I was also able to employ some Javascript and Dynamic HTML techniques I
