Title: Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 10:29:01 AM
I will be releasing a 1.4 version but am needing more information from you guys...

What bugs have popped up that we've needed to tackle?

If I can compile a list, I can fix them and get this package out.

I will also make it support 4.2 with register globals OFF.

Hmm... all I can think of now are that all the hardcoded language parts should be added to the .lng file so that they can be also translated. Quote: , Quote from: , Code, Your MSN email address etc.

I already sent you an important bug via IM... ;) ;D

Not sure which one you're talking about...if it's one I'm thinking of, I am pretty sure we fixed it?  IMs?
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...

I only got the one we already talked about :)
support for the register_globals is Off by default in php 4.2.0.

thanks i really appericiate all your efforts. If you can make something so it supports referral links it would be great.

example:  
if i am posting a hotdeal i put in  

goto staples  and you can order it online if staples would link to something like my refferal link

staples=http://referral.com  etc.. but it would still say staples that would be good, i can make a lot of money from affiliate program if it would change the staples  word into staples linking it to my referral id.

THANKS

b4zz, I have a fix for that, email me at jeff@lewismedia.com and you can be the guinea pig ;)

Postdeals: I don't quite understand what you're asking and I'm not planning on adding much int he way of features, mostly want to fix some bugs up.

What will be the differences between 1.4 and 1.3 with the bugfix installed?

I've got no real problems with my board the only issue I've had is here (http://www.yabb.info/community/index.php?board=163;action=display;threadid=8144)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: PHPlugin on May 14, 2002, 11:19:46 AM
I guess 1.4 will only be more bugless than 1.3.
There wont come new features I think!

right?  ;D
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 11:33:37 AM
Don't know what all I am putting in, mostly bug fixes.  I got TWO scary emails with lists of requests :)  I can't get that all in guys :)

The driving force behind this is the need to have it work with PHP 4.2
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Spaceman-Spiff on May 14, 2002, 11:51:40 AM
if its just bugfixes, why not make it 1.3.1 or 1.3.2 ;)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Meriadoc on May 14, 2002, 11:59:24 AM
the Report to Moderator email is a bit off. Under subject it has the name of the person who reported it. It's just a little confusing....check your email about it Jeff.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 12:02:50 PM
Meriadoc, yeah I fixed it in this - used a suggestion from Compuart.  It's in the bug tracker as well.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: vorapoap (vory) on May 14, 2002, 12:14:09 PM
Surpirsedly, ^_^ Why does YaBBSE work very smoothly on my Win2K-Apache-PHP4.2

And I agree that if it is just a bug fix and to make compatibility to PHP4.2  the version number should be 1.3.1 and 1.3.2 or something like that.

 ;)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 12:27:21 PM
Yes thank you everyone for our input on the version number  ::)

It works perfectly fine on my 4.2 install as well but chances are you have register_globals set to on.  By default 4.2 is set to off which will cause a lot of issues for others.

But I have changed my php.ini here to have it off and it's working fine with the solution I have added.  I have also fixed 12 bugs for this release...
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...

Not sure which one you're talking about...if it's one I'm thinking of, I am pretty sure we fixed it?  IMs?


It's the one about the possibility to read all the posts in the 'hidden boards'. But I think you already fixed this because I got this IM a while ago:

Thanks for the heads up.  We've got a fix we shall release soon!

;)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 01:26:10 PM
Yep, fixed...or should be.  I have to find who did it and make sure, although I was sure we posted the fix for it :)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: groundup on May 14, 2002, 04:38:02 PM
omg!! the last release was just released like a month ago.  this is too fast for me :)

hmm.. maybe we can get some optimized stuff into the next one (after 1.4)?
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: groundup on May 14, 2002, 05:03:48 PM
Hey I am happy though.  Just found those bugs that I posted were fixed.  Thanks Jeff ;D
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Patty on May 14, 2002, 05:27:58 PM
Maybe this has been mentioned elsewhere, but I had a user sign up with spaces in his name. The account works, but you can't send him any IM messages as a result.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 05:50:21 PM
Patty, i posted a fix for this a few weeks ago in Bugs 1.3 :)  IM Error is what the thread is called.

Post by: Chris Cromer on May 14, 2002, 09:18:19 PM
I know of a bug, the cry smiley doesn't work in 1.3.1 because somebody wrote :/' ( instead of :' ( in the array.

If I think of any other bugs, I will be sure to report them here.

Also, how about adding the global mod center for 1.4(sorry couldn't help in asking this ;))
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 14, 2002, 09:31:24 PM
The thing witht he cry smiley is that some setups work one way, some don't work the other way.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 14, 2002, 09:34:06 PM
Oh, ok. Any chance of the global moderator center though? ;)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 15, 2002, 02:37:51 AM
Found something that needs to be changed. When an admin alters someones profile, it saves the admins IP to that persons profile instead of keeping the users real IP address.

I noticed this when I altered one of my users profile to give them a certain member group.

Post by: Evil-Eddy on May 15, 2002, 03:55:20 AM
The File Attachment bug is a big one for me.... don't know about others.  If a bug fix for this was added to 1.4 or 1.3.2 or whatever that would make my day.  I am talking about the bug where if you or a global mod deletes a full thread it does not delete the file from attachments but does remove it from the attachments manager list.  If you try to upload same file it says it already exists.... so on.  Mediman was working on a fix I think, but I have kinda lost track of it.

Progress is good.  Love to see it!

Post by: Chris Cromer on May 15, 2002, 04:05:41 AM
Here is a though, when somebody enters the wrong password, it logs it into the forums error log unencrypted which means the admin could see what the password is because it wasn't encrypted. This is bad for instance, if I typed in my password but was 1 character off, the admin might be able to easily guess my password, and if my password was the same for not only the message board but other things as well, this could be a very serious problem.(No, my passwords are different for different things but it is still a bit of a security risk for people that are foolish enough to make all their passwords the same.)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: vorapoap (vory) on May 15, 2002, 05:47:29 AM
Yes.. I was thinking to tell this for sometime but always forget... Indeed, they incorrect password shouldn't be displayed to the user at all..

erm guys can u make real time chat mod in version 1.4 ?
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 15, 2002, 06:27:01 AM
That password display I won't change...

No chat for 1.4...

File attachment bug?  I'd need FTP to look at what is happening there...

Make it faster?  Not for 1.4 although SE 2 you will see some very large differences...
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 15, 2002, 08:46:00 AM
Well...here is what I've done so far...anything else guys?

Post by: Chris Cromer on May 15, 2002, 08:51:08 AM
I remember another bug that has been a problem for a few people. If you try to turn off sticky topics in your admin center then when you try to open topics it says "This topic does not exist on board x" where x is usually a random number and not the actual number of the board the topic is in.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...

Post by: Ben_S on May 15, 2002, 11:10:01 AM
How about changing the way IP's are logged? At the moment it gets REMOTE_ADDR I think it would be better if it looked for HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR (netapps and squid caches) and HTTP_CLIENT_IP (inktomi caches) so you can ban individuals and not whole ISP caches...

Yabb gold changed it to work like that....

Would be nice to have that back again...

Oh how about getting rid of the mod list from the tree menu thing as if you have a lot of mods, it can grow quite long....
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: David on May 15, 2002, 11:29:44 AM

tore- that isn't really important is it?

It is a very easy thing to add and would be appreciated by many people.  If you have the time I would seriously consider putting it into thei release.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 15, 2002, 11:34:26 AM
You're right it is easy, has anyone added it to their boards yet?
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 15, 2002, 11:36:44 AM
Well they have a mod that adds it... so I am guessing some people might already have it. I of course don't want it *ack* if you do add it, make sure to make on off check for the admin so he won't have to use it for his board.

2 things Jeff:
1) Not sure if you've done this but you know in the Mod Settings area, well have a looksee at the "censor whole word" mod. The "checked" bit is out of the input box.

2) Remember we spoke about the way MySQL querys were done? And how it should be fixed by breaking them up to allow mods to be compatible, well I take it you're doing that yeah?  :)
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 15, 2002, 03:58:11 PM
I haven't fixed the URLs no, Joseph may be a better one to look at that though.

Big P, not sure what you mean about the checked.

As for the queries, the queries won't be changed for this release.

Like I said, I mostly wanted to address some outstanding bugs...
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 15, 2002, 04:03:34 PM
How about the bug where it makes small avatars bigger when a avatar size limit is set. This should be taken care of because I have small avatars that bloat themselves on some boards that have the limit set and looks really weird.

Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...

Big P, not sure what you mean about the checked.

Erm, me either! I just looked at the code and its written fine, odd how it outputs:
"checked" on the line below "Censor whole word".. Odd that..

I take it SE2 will have redone queries then?

Jeff: I'm not sure if you checked the thread recently, but I added a few more fixes and named the mod 0.4 Alpha.

Perhaps the Alpha label is overly cautious, but I am unsure of how many people have tested it apart from me.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 15, 2002, 08:02:31 PM

Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Jedi~ on May 15, 2002, 08:07:27 PM
My mute users mod might be a nice small feature to add in 4.2, I need to clean the queries up a bit on it if it were to be used in 4.2 otherwise it should stay the same (compatibility.)

Cosmetic bug:

the YABBC tag commands "Insert Table Column" and "Insert Table Row" used when posting are not labeled correctly.

Clicking the "Insert Table Column" inserts the tags for a row  
and
Clicking the "Insert Row Column" inserts the tags for a column

The graphic icons for those tags need to be switched also.

its annoying, not really a bug - but Jeff, you did say you would change it.

I found something, have a look at http://www.agigames.com/boardmod/index.php?action=recent

and also look at http://www.agigames.com/boardmod/index.php?board=;action=search

now just look at the regular board. See how the search and the recent posts don't display using the proper css colors, the rest of the board at http://www.agigames.com/boardmod/ has the correct colors and style but just the search and recent post don't.

Looks like I just found another part that doesn't work right either, http://www.agigames.com/boardmod/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=37

See where it has the word poll and the picture for the poll... it doesn't have the correct colors their either.

There is a thread with a fix for this.  Change the field type in the database that stores karma from int to bigint.  Although I think 1.4 should fix this in the upgrade and install.

There seems to be something wrong with the email people receives, if the server is set to generate user passwords.
The username makes it into the email, but the password doesn't.

Jeff, as you know my board is also using php4.2.0, which i think is why this doesnt work anymore.

Haven't spent too much time looking over it, but you might want to check out 4.2.1, see if there's anything in that release that could cause conflicts (which is what my server is now running on and it's pissing me off because I thought I had caused a bug with yapp screwing everything up and I spent 2 hours fidiling with it to discover that my server was now on 4.2.1.  :-\ )

something that isnt really a bug, but should be changed IMO:

For PHP 4.2 Register Globals support, will YaBB SE turn the feature off explicitly and not make any assumption about this feature being disabled in php.ini?

Many applications still require Register Globals enabled to run and I suspect that sloppy admins will leave it enabled. Sensible applications should disable Register Globals for themselves.

Post by: Jeff Lewis on May 22, 2002, 06:19:49 AM
register globals does just that.  So by calling a page like the address above... action=post, with register globals you could just access $action in your code with it on.  With it off, you have to use $_GET[action] or $_POST[action] from a form or you can use a catch all.

For 1.4 we have added a small loop to turn all into regular globals.  We haven't used ini set at all...

I assume that you you extract all $_GET and $_POST vars, right? But that will create the same kind of security problems that existed before version 4.2.0, when global were ON by default.
You just extract vars from those arrays, but I guess you don't check if they exist. It means that you can get a parameter passed by an URL, when you expect a post.

I only use the new associative arrays from 4.1.2+
The code is much cleaner and I know what kind of info i'm using. Sessions are also much easier to use, because you only deal with the $_SESSION array, nothing else. No session_register/unregister, etc, ...

Yes we extract them but 1.4 is only being made to WORK with 4.2.

I should find i change of assinging members to the kategories very useful
I would like to be able to assing members by their usernames instead or let me choose if i want to assing by membergroup or by name.
Example

if you have three users lets call them 1,2,3 and you want to give them access to different boards but they all should have access to one board that others dont have access to you get a problem.

assingning them to the same membergroup gives them access to the board they shouldnt see.The only way i can fix this is to let them have differant logins and that isnt i nice way of solving this.
If i have missed something and you can do this already i will be happy to know how  ;D

I am trying to fix it, but am haveing trouble.

The problem is that, the password being sent to the e-mail address for some reason is not the same as the one that is in the member table... I don't know why it is doing this either. I don't know much about how the crypt function works so I beleive the crypt function is somehow tied into my problem.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: John R on May 24, 2002, 12:09:49 AM
The encryption works pretty much the same way in PHP as it does in Perl.  As I understand it, the way it works with the SE scripts is that the password is encrypted and stored in the membertable.  When a user logs in, he enters the un-encrypted version of his password.  Once he has entered his password, the password is encrypted and compared to the password stored in the membertable.  If it matches, he is logged in otherwise you get the incorrect password error.

To answer your query, the password that is emailed should be the plain version of the encrypted version that is stored in the membertable.  It shouldn't be the same as what is stored in the membertable.

I really think that storing encrypted passwords in a password protected database is useless and a waste of programming time. Protect only the password in cookies.

Post by: Mach8 on May 24, 2002, 06:36:41 AM
Okay listen up here's a real example as to why the passwords should be encrypted:

About 5 months ago, a friend of mine signed up on a forum running a rival's forum software which DID NOT encrypt passwords. he'd spent the day doing stuff in his online bank account, then for a break went to this forum. Everything seemed normal.

Then he went to the bank's site the next day and noticed a problem... he couldn't login. The fact he needed to check something urgently made him email the bank. It turned out someone had logged in using his details, and changed the password.

The only site he'd been on that MONTH apart from the bank site was the forum. He had a good firewall which blocked personal data from being sent, so packet sniffers would find it hard to get his password.
Although he could never prove it, he knew someone with authority on this forum must have obtained his password, found he'd come from the bank site, and logged in.

I never use the same password across multiple sites, simply because if that one password is found out, then one person can login to all those sites at once.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 24, 2002, 07:06:09 AM
Alright, here is what I have:

Code: [Select]
      $pswd = $member['passwrd1'];
      $request = mysql_query("UPDATE {$db_prefix}members SET passwd='crypt($pswd,substr($pswd,0,2))' WHERE memberName='$user'");
      sendmail($member['email'],"$txt[700] $mbname", "$txt[733] $pswd $txt[734] $member[user].\n\n$txt[701] $scripturl?action=profile;user=$euser\n\n$txt[130]");


The only thing is it is sending a different password to the user than is being put into the table, any suggestions/ideas why?
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Neil Darlow on May 24, 2002, 07:47:19 AM
I don't see how you can use the crypt function within the MySQL query like you are. I would expect you'd need to assign the crypted password to a PHP variable and put that variable into the query.

I will be releasing a 1.4 version but am needing more information from you guys...

What bugs have popped up that we've needed to tackle?


Not really a bug, perhaps an enhancement to existing features... One of the things I was really hoping for was better control over group access to boards/categories.

For example, I have board Cat1 & Cat2, and custom labeled groups 1, 2, and 3.  I want custom group 1 to have user access to Cat1, group 2 to have moderator access to Cat1 (but not Cat2) and group 3 to have moderator access to Cat2 (but not Cat1).

Maybe I'm not looking deep enough, but I don't see a way to do this without a lot of unnecessary work, and without relying on "# of posts" ranks.

(Sorry if I've put this in the wrong area... Looked like the best place for it, since I figured it would be a code change.)

I have YaBB SE-1.3.0 plus the bug fix package. Looking at Profile.php the password crypt manipulations are done on variable $queryPasswdPart which is modified by escaping from the string and concatenating the crypt function result using the . operator back into string mode.

What you showed earlier is not like this at all.

      sendmail($member['email'],"$txt[700] $mbname", "$txt[733] $pswd $txt[734] $member[user].\n\n$txt[701] $scripturl?action=profile;user=$euser\n\n$txt[130]");
      print <<<EOT


and also replace this:

Code: [Select]
   mt_srand(34028934023); //pseudo-random seed
   if( $member['passwrd1'] == '' && $emailnewpass && strtolower($member['email']) != strtolower($settings[2]) && $settings[7] != 'Administrator') {
      $member['passwrd1'] = crypt(mt_rand(-100000,100000));
      $newpassemail = 1;
   } else {


with:

Code: [Select]
     mt_srand(time());
     if( $member['passwrd1'] == '' && $emailnewpass && strtolower($member['email']) != strtolower($settings[2]) && $settings[7] != 'Administrator') {
           $member['passwrd1'] = crypt(mt_rand(-100000,100000));
           $member['passwrd1'] = preg_replace("/\W/","",$member['passwrd1']);

Not sure about that substr call. crypted passwords are two (2) salt plus eleven (11) characters. Why are you extracting the first ten?
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 24, 2002, 09:24:55 AM
That makes the password 10 characters long instead of the super huge password you would normally receive.

There was 3 bugs not just 1. The first was the password would contain special characters that it wasn't supposed to, the 2nd was it was too long, and the 3rd was it not saveing the password to the database after you change your password and you have e-mail password on e-mail change set.

You can see more about these other bugs here (http://www.yabb.info/community/index.php?board=140;action=display;threadid=8558).

Post by: Neil Darlow on May 24, 2002, 10:09:21 AM

Neil, that is how we are creating password in Register.php


As long as you are aware that giving the user the salt and 8 characters of the password potentially weakens the password over that provided by crypt itself.

The other effects noted by Chris Comer are the expected outcome of MD5 and Blowfish encryption. These are documented in the PHP crypt function description (although I would add that FreeBSD natively generates a salt beginning with $2a$ for Blowfish encryption).

Passing a two character salt from the DES crypt character set (0-9A-Za-z./) should enforce the DES mode of encryption, if it's available on the platform, giving the expected 2 salt + 11 character encoding.

Giving the user the salt is unnecessary as it's available in the database for use by the verification logic.

If you give the user all 11 characters of the password you retain password strength at the expense of sending 11 characters instead of 10.

Why give the user redundant information and weaken the password strength for the sake of a single character? And, IMHO, no password mechanism is too secure.

Post by: Silver Dragon on May 25, 2002, 11:22:59 PM
I believe there is still a bug with censored words.  If you set a word with two ** then it breaks your entire forum.  I don't know if this was fixed yet.

To be honest, I'm not sure it's a big deal, just a slight annoyance.  If it didn't make it into 1.4, I don't think anyone would notice.  Could be wrong though.

Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Silver Dragon on May 25, 2002, 11:42:15 PM
Simple.  Go to your censored words.  Add 'A**=Smurf' and take a look at the damage.  Brings the whole board down.  Fortunatly you can still get in and change it back...  All goes back to normal.  Again, it's not a big deal since the word getting censored is already censored (if you will).  But a bug nonetheless.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Chris Cromer on May 25, 2002, 11:45:53 PM
Oh, now I see what you mean... but why would anyone censor already censored text. :P

But still I will take a look and see what I can do.
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Silver Dragon on May 26, 2002, 12:04:23 AM
See, that's why it's not a huge concern.  I think we are the only ones that would do that (all words, including pre-censored words, get renamed to 'smurf' terminology.  It's actually funny to swear up a storm on our forum.)  It's just a small bug, but not one that merits lots of man-hours.

One other small thing.  I think that if I search for a word that is censored, it will actually display the censored words un-censored in the results page.  Unfortunatly I can not verify this right now, so I could be smoking green crack.

Well I wrote a little work around for it, it doesn't fully fix it. I tried it out on my board and it works fine.

Basically now it won't censor the word if it contains more than 1 * in the vulgar word.

Well, I just found this post and applied it to my board and it works 100%

Thanks to PtPazuzu for pointing it out!

changing :

Code:
$db = preg_replace("/[^0-9A-Za-z#%+,-\.@^_]/","",$db);


to

Code:
$db = preg_replace("/[^0-9A-Za-z#%+\s,-\.@^_]/","",$db);


fixes the problem 2. This adds the space to the list of characters not 2 remove from the string.

Nevermind, they can register with those characters.

Also... I have a temp solution to fix the + problem... don't let it be used in the registering name at all.

A better solution would be to check to see if the user name has a + for the first character... but is there a command to check a specifc character to see if it is a certain letter?

Since 1.4 is mostly bug fixes, I think you shourd only charge *half* of what you would for a full version.  I'm sick of spending USD $0.00 every time you guys upgrade the software.  At least make it a reasonable USD $0.00 for the bug fixes and USD $0.00 for 2.0.  That way we don't feel like we are spending our money on nothing.  Man, YaBB SE is getting expensive all of a sudden!

Post by: joefish on May 28, 2002, 01:04:16 AM
i find that even thoough i set myself to stay logged in forever, i still end up logged out when i come back the next day. or sometimes it says im logged in on the active users list, but i still have to choose 'login' and enter my username/password when i want to use my board. is this a bug or something else ??
Title: Re:Version 1.4 on the way...
Post by: Silver Dragon on May 28, 2002, 01:32:26 AM
On that same note, another neat new feature of 1.4 or 2.0 (your choice) would be the ability for the admin to choose if the 'always stay logged in' checkbox is active by default or not.  

The same applies to the registration agreement.  I would like to have 'I agree' checked.

I can see where some admins would NOT want these checked, so I think it has to be defined in the admin center.  That way those worried about security or legaleese can have it set up like they do now, and those who like to post the root password in there forum for all to see (like me) can have it the other way.

I'm not sure either of these warrants immediate attention, but it would be nice to see in 2.0 at the least.  Ohhh, and an animated cow in 2.0 would be cool too.  Dragon GIF files like to eat cow GIF files for lunch.

I have used wBB and there was a nice choice of path to bgimage and also for fixed bg image. Suspose it wold be nice option?

How about IP tracking, what systenm it gonna be, I vote for tracking the real IP without proxy. Also what about give specific users right to specific forums by name, let us say after 10 messages. This was the option I missing earlier, you remember?

dwp: Yes that is possible to have a fixed image in your template, I used to use one myself but it got a bit annoying.

Just put this into the body tag of your template:

Code: [Select]
background="URL_OF_IMAGE" bgproperties=fixed

Change URL_OF_IMAGE to the location of the image you want for a background.

For instance my body tag looks like:

Code: [Select]
<BODY text=#000000 link=#0033ff bgColor=#f5f5f5 background="URL_OF_IMAGE" bgproperties=fixed>

Remember the body tag is already in the template. :)

open your notepad or other text edit, type the codes above in Mephidmann's post
then save it as phpinfo.php, upload it to your host
after you've created that file,
if when you view it in your browser it shows only the code, that means u dont have php installed in your webserver
if you do, it will show a bunch of tables of information about the php versions, variables, mods, etc thats installed there

 :-[ I try to save this code to *.php file
1. paste this code to notepad
2.Click files-save- change "text file"--> "all file " and write this file: phpinfo.php
but when I see this file ,it's  "phpinfo.php.txt"
I known this way to save a code to the other file(*.exe,*.php),but this code:
<?

phpinfo();

?>
I can't
And I don't know why ???

Well then after you save it just remove the .txt part.

Or enter "phpinfo.php" within quotes when saving it - That will force Windows not to add any other extension.
