display php errors in browser

While M3′s default display php errors in browser is off for security reasons, you may enable it on your site(s).

Add this to your site’s root .htaccess file:

WARNING – MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR .HTACCESS FILE FIRST FOR EASY RESTORE.

NOTICE – When you are complete, you should disable php display errors since this provides would be attackers with knowledgable information regarding your site’s setup and therefore weakens your security.

If something goes wrong, server error 500 page, just restore your .htaccess file with your backup – no need to panic nor wake up your programmer.

If you don’t have a .htaccess file, just create one with your favorite PLAIN TEXT editor (not MS Word or other non plain text editor).

Add this line of code to the top of your .htaccess file:

php_flag display_errors on

Save the .htaccess file and upload it to your server. Refresh your page. Unless your php application is supressing php errors, any php errors will be displayed on your page.

Why forwarding email is bad

Example ticket:

> not sure what you mean by stopping forwarding

Note: We use gmail here in this example, but this pertains to any and all 3rd party mail servers, such as aol, hotmail, yahoo, etc.

Forwarding email:
bob@yourdomain.com >> bob223@gmail.com

Email sent to one of your addresses is “forwarded” to another 3rd party domain. We call these email aliases that forward mail to 3rd party servers.

Spam sent to bob@yourdomain.com is forwarded like legitimate email to bob223@gmail.com. Problem happens when gmail recognizes the spam through filtering inspections and compounded by the user bob223 when he identifies a spam message and clicks spam. This in turn tells gmail that your server is
sending out spam. Google mostly likely will first just defer your messages to give you a heads up something is wrong. But, if the amount of messages are too great, gmail will indeed permanently defer your emails, also known as blacklisting.

What happens to your mail that is forwarded if its blocked? It bounces back to the sender, which often is forged in the email reply to of the message. Spammers use this tactic in a cheap way to send out their spam. We in turn call this backscatter.

How to correct this? Simple. Remove the forwarding email address from your server’s control panel. Then, add it back specifying a user name and password to the email address. This allows you to remotely check the email direct from your server to the mail client of your choice. Mail clients can be any or a combination of the following:

  • Smart phone mail app
  • Computer mail client such as Microsoft or Mac Mail
  • Even gmail can access your server via remote mail check (pop3/imap)
