Rainbow TheHostingTool v1.2.2
Posted by: Kevin - 06-18-2010, 07:20 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (16)

The rest of the team and I are very proud to announce to you today, the release of TheHostingTool version 1.2.2! This is yet another milestone in the active development of the best open-source web-hosting management tool. This release includes over 9000 40 Subversion revisions, and many user contributions. Here's just some of the things covered:

Changes from the SVN Repo

  • Made a much more reliable security check to make sure the installation file is being called directly. r5
  • Fixed a problem where the Next Step button wouldn't be disabled when there was an error. r6
  • Fixed a buggy installer. This includes the problems where you would get a red number instead of a more helpful error message when entering your SQL details. r8
  • On install, it will now try to automatically generate a working Site URL. Hopefully this will help a few of you. Wink r9
  • Anything related to the API was deleted. Not happening in the 1.2 series. r11, r44, r45
  • Fixes to the footer. r12, r13
  • The RSS Reader on the admin home is now PHP 5.3 compatible. r14
  • Changed database encoding/collation to utf8(_general_ci) r15, r42
  • Fixed multiple FPD (full path disclosure) exploits. r16, r17, r19.
  • Fixed a major exploit relating to the mass mailing system. r21
  • P2H fixes. r22
  • Email template fixes. r23
  • Platform-specific installer fixes. r24, r25
  • Fixes to the service status checker. r26
  • Complete rewrite of the change user password function. r27
  • When passwords are reset, they are now synced between cPanel/WHM and THT. r28
  • The pesky subdomain bug. r32
  • [Issue 7] Invoice "due date" bug + patch r34
  • [Issue 10] Wrong caption when searching for users r36
  • [Issue 12] Unparsed data on client invoice page. r38
  • [Issue 13] Client search does not recognize status 4 r39
  • WHM Importer now imports emails too. Thanks to Zack. r40

This release patches some major security exploits. Please upgrade as soon as possible. This is a only a few of the new trinkets directly commited to the Google Code Subversion repository. KuJoe has added many more new fixes and features which can be viewed here. This release is only for upgrading 1.2.1. Upgrades from the 1.2.2 beta, nightly builds, or subversion snapshots are not supported.

Special Upgrade Insturctions
If upgrading, please delete your "xml-api" or "api" folders from the main THT directory if they still exist. Development on them in the 1.2 series has ceased and leaving them there may add security risks to your installation. As always, remember to backup both your MySQL Database and your files just in case something goes wrong.

What are you waiting for? Oh.

PS: Did you catch that we've switched to a new bug tracker? No?!

  New and Improved Bug Tracking!
Posted by: KuJoe - 06-11-2010, 12:40 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (1)

In an attempt to make life easier for both you the users and us the developers, we have decided to close the THT Bug Report forum and are moving over to Google Code's built-in Issues feature which allows us to better document the bugs along with the fixes and integrates with the SVN for easier tracking and instant access to bug fixes for users who wish to impliment the fixes themselves.

If you would like to submit an issue to our tracking system you may do so here, all you need is a Google account. Big Grin

If you report any bugs on the forum or any other means we will direct you to that site so save us all some time and energy and submit your bugs there!

Brick Announcing Google Code and Nightly Builds!
Posted by: Kevin - 05-22-2010, 09:14 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (6)

Today, I'd like to bring to your attention two new services that we can now offer.

Google Code
Google Code is a service that let's us host our project's files and manage bug reports with its issue tracker. It also provides our Subversion hosting. Subversion is a version control system that allows us to easily make changes and collaborate with the rest of the team on improving and building on TheHostingTool. It also provides a good way to see what's been going on as far as development goes.


Nightly Builds
What are nightly builds? Essentially, they are snapshots of the main line of development (/trunk) in our Subversion repository. They are, as the name suggests, automatically made every night. These are not for production use and are not guaranteed to work! We offer them so that you can easily get a recent development copy of TheHostingTool for you to test. If you are willing to take a little harder route, we recommend checking out the Subversion repository directly.

If you're wondering how it works, it's just a bash cron job script that is set to run every night and a little .htaccess hacking. And if you're interested in obtaining the source, feel free to Private Message me.


Enjoy. Wink

  TheHostingTool added to OpenSourceCMS
Posted by: Jonny - 05-09-2010, 07:46 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (1)

I'm proud to announce that we've been added to the very popular open source demo website opensourcecms.com. This will hopefully broaden our audience who see our work here.

This will also give us other benefits as it will provide a working demo what we can use here at THT for your needs.

If anyone wants to check out the page it's here.

Information TheHostingTool 1.2.2 BETA!
Posted by: KuJoe - 05-05-2010, 09:25 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (28)

Hello everyone, I am happy to announce that the progress of 1.2.2 has been coming along nicely but the area we are lacking right now is in the QA/testing aspect. I have been testing each feature as I put it into the code but that does mean that it will work the same on every server configuration or every THT setup.

Luckily, I am sure many of you out there are willing to help us out and test some code for us! Big Grin

Now the attachment I am providing is a BETA RELEASE of my code changes! This means that it IS NOT SUPPORTED! Any bugs you may experience are to be reported but any questions or additional support outside of the current stable release (1.2.1) will not be handled due to time constraints.

DO NOT UPGRADE A LIVE THT INSTALLATION TO THIS VERSION! Again, this has only been tested briefly by myself and we cannot guarantee that this will function properly on all installations (which is why we are releasing this so you can help us out!)

I am requesting all interested parties to download the 1.2.2b ZIP and either copy your current installations to run as a test setup or install it brand new for testing.

Not all of the new features are working 100% but while those are receiving the final touches I would like for you all to build a list of bugs (hopefully none, but unfortunately that's a rare case in any script) to work on once those features are done so we can speed up releasing a stable version.

What I can guarantee:
1.2.2b works without any issues on both my live system (upgraded from 1.2.1) and my test system (clean install of 1.2.2).

What I cannot guarantee:
1.2.2b will work without any issues on any other system (so do not upgrade a live 1.2.1 system!).

I know some of you requested the diff report to manually upgrade your heavily modified systems... unfortunately since this is a beta release you will have to hold off until the stable release (or use a program such as DiffDaff).

So for the brave, patient souls out there...

  Let's not do that again...
Posted by: Kevin - 04-11-2010, 05:38 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (13)

Don't ya hate it when simple things end up going horribly wrong? Like rebuilding Apache & PHP to fix the Unknown Location bug? Of course.

So essentially Apache was offline for a bit (couple hours or so Dodgy) due to it failing to compile. Which was in turn because apparently upgrading to MySQL 5.1 is a pretty big no, no. Turned out MySQL 5.1 and cPanel don't play so nice together. Which somehow, caused EasyApache to screw itself over. Fun stuff.

With help from the awesome guys at Server Complete (seriously, they got back to my ticket in literally a couple minutes.) we were able to figure out the cause and downgrade MySQL. With a few more tweaks it was smooth sailing. Apart from SVN complaining, but I'll spare you that. :p

On a different note, I invite you to check out the new Drupal powered main site: http://thehostingtool.com/ I implemented Jonny's multi-column theme and was able to add a bit more functionality to... make it more functional. Enjoy the changes, and don't forget to update any old links that link to the old /site/ directory and its files.

A message to all cPanel/WHM users out there: Don't upgrade your server to use MySQL 5.1. Stick with 5.0 if possible. It'll save you a load of trouble. Maybe one day it'll work. Angel

Now if you'll excuse me it is currently 5:38 AM and I have yet to decide if I should sleep tonight. Big Grin

Bug TheHostingTool v1.2.1
Posted by: Kevin - 03-21-2010, 05:49 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (20)

Hello TCom! I'm very happy to announce the release of THT v1.2.1! This is a huge bugfix release. There are also quite a few nice little features and enhancements too. Here's a semi-complete list of changes since 1.2:

Bugs Fixed:

  • Fixed the cant re declare fatal error bug
  • Fixed bug where redirects to payment for every type.
  • Fixed the delete ticket problem with some physically attractive AJAX.
  • Made a better check_email function, validEmail. validEmail is included in includes/class_main.php so it can be used just about anywhere. validEmail does not use the deprecated ereg function. (PHP 5.3 support) Wink
  • Fixed two things. If a username is over eight characters then it is considered invalid. Also, anything put in the username field is automatically converted to lowercase.
  • THT will no longer accept usernames that begin with a number.
  • Fixed bug described here: http://thehostingtool.com/forum/thread-423.html
  • Fixed bug in footer as described here: http://thehostingtool.com/forum/thread-395.html

Features / Enhancements:
  • Updated order form message when paid completed
  • Order Form now redirects straight to payment once completed
  • Updated compiler.php and info.tpl with some update information.
  • Added Drupal P2H support!
  • Changed invoices box in client area to look nicer. More JS.
  • Fixed a notice here and there. Gave compiler.php a new checkForDependencies function that runs at the beginning of every load and checks for basic functions that it needs. Such as MySQL and cURL. More to be added as needed.
  • Added tool tip about keeping the username under 8 characters.
  • Upgraded jquery.js to jQuery 1.4. It doesn't seem to have broken anything after some basic testing.
  • Staff can change a client's cPanel account password
  • Changed XML-API folder to API and added a readme.

The upgrade and install works just the same as before. Remember when upgrading our installing to have conf.inc.php chmodded so that it can be read and written by PHP.

To install:
  1. Create a MySQL user and database for TheHostingTool to use.
  2. Upload TheHostingTool's files to a directory of your choosing.
  3. Go to the folder in your browser and click the link to the install and choose install. Make sure your configuration file can be written to. Fill out your MySQL details and follow the onscreen instructions.

To upgrade:
  1. Backup everything. Files and your database. Save them to your computer.
  2. Upload the files on top of your old THT installation. Replacing all files if prompted.
  3. Re-upload your configuration file to its correct directory.
  4. Make sure it is chmodded correctly and proceed to the /install directory in your browser.
  5. Choose upgrade and follow the onscreen instructions.
  6. Deleted the XML-API directory while you're at it. It has been renamed to API.

Enjoy. Cool

  President's Day Update
Posted by: Kevin - 02-16-2010, 12:09 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (11)

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to give you guys a much deserved status update. I'll cover what's going on with THT 1.2.1, the Dev Team, and the future.

THT 1.2.1:
Without a doubt 1.2.1 covers alot. We managed to fix almost all of the known bugs. Not everything but most. And some new features. When it's released we'll have a full list of what's been done. Right now we only have a few (2-3) more bugs to squash. And then we'll wrap it up with the installer.

The Development Team:
The development team has been somewhat limited due to school, work, and other projects. Nelson has done some wonderful work on the upcoming Wiki/Documentation and we've all been trying our best to keep up with the support requests! If you wanna help out shoot me a PM and we'll talk. Wink

The Future:
We're planning a Admin CP redesign and the API. I've decided now that it will support both JSON and XML so we'll no longer be calling it an XML-API but just API. It will probably be put together incrementally. Meaning that it will be implemented gradually between releases. We want it to be easy to use and easy to understand.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask! We love to hear from you!

  New Developer!
Posted by: Nelson - 12-11-2009, 08:06 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (9)

Hey guys!

Since we're a little shorthanded on developers with Jonny busier than before and quite some work to do on 1.2.1, I've been recruited as a THT developer. I just want to take the time and introduce myself. My name is Nelson (as my username implies Tongue) and my username was formerly simmaster.

I'm a PHP developer and I'm trying to use those skills to win this here contest and help out around the THT community.

Happy Holidays!
