Save a remote URL to local server securely/safely?

Using PHP or some such, how would I give people a form, they enter a JPG URL from another site, and it wgets/whatever that JPG and saves it to a local folder?

Basically want to make it easy for people to attach remote pics to a small forum (eventually via a bookmarklet).

It’s probably something really basic i’m missing.

Using PHP to WGET the image just seems insecure and stupid?

Ok so i’m googling, would I be right to use curl to grab the image, put it in a temp directory outside world readable areas, check it for the file headers etc to make sure it’s an image, then move it into an attachments directory?

I Might be really late to this. But .xxx domains are here? ($129/each)

, prob old news but thought I’d share. Anyone buy one yet? I can’t justify spending $130 on a single domain..

Seems like a massive cash grab. There is a huge market of suckers when it comes to the domain market.

There is some sense in obtaining a decent domain name, for some tactical advantages or so that it may be easily remembered.

The .XXX domain on the other hand is obvious by the fact that it uses shock value to draw attention to it and fear in order to draw people to buy it. People don’t want to go through the pain of defending their online domains.

Cheap reliable Magento hosting?

Looking for recommendations for a cheap and reliable host. Big companies really, not small firms.

Magento is buggy with Hostgator shared, but Magento seems to be the best e-commerce solution out there, most of the open source stores on a design level look pretty outdated.

I have ran it on my hostgator shared and never had a problem with it

Runs on Bounceweb, albeit not very fast. Haven’t ran it on my reseller account.

Heard Hostgator VPS is a decent way to fly. I’ve got a client account using AspirationHosting for one Magento setup. I….dunno about them. I mean, I didn’t have any huge problems with them I guess. Not the fastest on response time, but they weren’t horrible or anything. Speed was OK, but had some strange ass issues with dowtime. I get the impression they are a one man show that’s blowing up, and will probably spiral out of control before too much time.

Separated another script,in another folder & using another DB? For security

For a website, sometime we used more than a script that separated, yes separated and dont have connection at all each other

for example
domain.com is a forum, using vbulletin
domain.com/blog is a blog, using wordpress
domain.com/store is ecommerce, using oscommerce
domain.com/article is article cms, using joomla
etc

so for security best practice, like if one of the script get hacked or get something wrong,
another script files in another folder,

Adwords Image Banners? A few questions for PPC.

I want to start doing banner ads on adwords.. Looking at this page:

What’s the most common size used, anything I should keep in mind with design? Also is it hard to setup image ads, I’m perfect at PPC text ads, but have never used image ads before. And don’t even know where to start.. They want to give me another $300 credit. (I go through a ton of text ads ~$3-4K/month.)

MediaTemple.net- 3rd Time this month slow dead server, Anyone else have problems?

Websites keeps loading super slow at night, to the point where I can’t even do anything in wordpress.. (Sites get no traffic at all, so it’s not me) Then they keep having database errors and won’t even load after the slowdown.. Did a pingdom test, took over 60 seconds and it still wouldn’t load.. Sites operate super fast and function fine in the morning, but almost the same time 6PM-10PM they are so slow it’s impossible to even access them.. And then they just stop working..

Hey Guys! I’m looking for free hosting, vbulletin, themes, domains, and SEO…

If you can take care of that all, and manage it for me too that would be great. I’m looking to do it all for free or maybe $10 at the most. I don’t see the point in paying anyone anything or more than $10 to do all of that. I don’t want any cheap shit either, it needs to be all professional top quality stuff as well. Also my Adsense account is banned so I need you to figure out how I can make an income. Also vBulletin? Just pirate it bro.

I just bought a new domain. How can I rank #1 for "Forex" in a week and preferably for free?

FBA – fucking bitches asses!

fuck this forum died

I have a new daughter ready to be popped out in another month or two and I realized I should probably actually get off my ass and make some money again lol.

Where are all the FBA homies at? I’m jumping in head first and could use some hot tips

Don’t have the know-how or capital to private label, don’t have the the wholesale info yet or probably the capital to make real orders so retail arbitrage it is

I know a few of you are kicking ass with amazon. Probably way late to the party but I’ll bring the hot chicks!
