I’m frustrated

Where are solutions to solved questions kept?

I found a question similar to mine re:sayHelloweb.php errors. The question was marked solved but what is the solution? Where is it located?
Below are the error(s) that I get when I enter a name and therefore call the .php part of the lesson. This is for ch2 of php & mysql missing manual.

( ! ) SCREAM: Error suppression ignored for
( ! ) Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0

  • Hi Ken,

    I'm not sure what's going on with that, so I have passed this on to the author to see if he knows. We'll see what he has to say about it.

  • 22 days have passed since I asked this question. 12 days since it was passed to the author. I still have answer.

  • I’m frustrated and angry that no one took the time to deal with my problem
    At the top of this page it says "O'Reilly media employees are here to help". Its been 2 months since I asked this question and have had no response except to say that the question has been passed on. Obviously no help!!!!
    BUT here is help for those that follow me. The problem was that WAMP could not find anything that was a reference in the code therefore several errors occurred. My solution was to chuck out WAMP and install XAMP which immediately produced the results suggested in the book example. Therefore O'Reilly should figure out what is different between the 2 installations(both were installed straight from the download) and provide instructions on how to change the parameters for WAMP so that it works the way the instructions say it should.
    Needless to say I don't think much of your support efforts in this matter.

  • Hi Ken,

    I got a response back from the author about this problem, but he didn't have a specific solution to your problem. He said:
    ----
    Sorry for taking so long, I've done a fair bit of hunting on this myself.

    As best I can tell, this is mostly likely a permissions error (I know it says that) related to the WAMP directory structure. There are some rather obscure reports of a document root in the WampServer install being moved and that creating some permission issues.

    What I've not been able to find are details on how this would occur on Windows, since there really isn't a clear idea of permissions in the Linux/Unix-style where you can just fix permissions recursively. (Why oh why does Windows not implement "-r" and "-R"?) But it's acting like the web root isn't set to 755, as you'd normally have a document root.

    What I'd probably recommend (somewhat blindly) is to uninstall and re-install WampServer as a starting point.
    ----
    Let us know if that doesn't help and we'll try to find another way to help.

  • Hi:
    I think I provided the answer in my post above that I sent this morning. Use XAMP instead.
