Whaddya know how to install PHPMotion script?

Are you having issue installing the PHPMotion version 2.0? Here's a simple guide to help you resolve this issue.

Web Server Background:

  • Server is running Linux Apache environment
  • PHP 5.2.x version

Installation of PHPMotion version 2.0

  • Identify your existing web server environment.
  • Create a file to your webserver with this code " "
  • With the information from phpinfo, you will be able to identify the right version to download e.g. 4.o or 5.x php released.
  • Download the script (, go to download section
  • Unzip the file to your local folder.
  • Upload these files and folders to your webserver, in root directory.
  • CHMOD all the following files and directories to 777 the following folders
  • CHMOD all the following files and directories to 755
    /cgi-bin/all files in there
    /cgi-bin/audio/all files in there
  • Start the installation wizard by going to (replace with your real domain name)
  • Follow and provide the information needed e.g. MySQL database username and password, etc.

When I first check my installation for, I've got this error:

Warning: dl() [function.dl]: Temporary module name should contain only filename in /home/xxx/public_html/classes/config.php on line 2PHP script /home/xxx/public_html/classes/config.php is protected by phpSHIELD and requires the phpSHIELD loader phpshield.5.2.lin. The phpSHIELD loader has not been installed, or is not installed correctly. Please visit the phpSHIELD php encoder site to download required loader.

To resolve the phpSHIELD error, check your php extension_dir. You can find this information through your, see above what specific code to put to info.php file.

Ex. extension_dir = /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/ ;

You will then need to copy 1 file from your ftp folder into this "extension library". The file to copy is located in the "phpshield" folder and its named phpshield.5.2.lin.

Example of how to copy this file. (This is done via ssh as root user)

cp -a /your_local/folder/phpshield/phpshield.5.2.lin /usr/local/lib/php/extensions

where; /usr/local/lib/php/extensions is the location of your extension_dir

Now, visit and you will be able to see the default install of PHPMotion version 2.0. Please note replace with your actual domain name.

I hope this help.

  2. @sinha,

    You can see your current web hosting configuration setting through reading phpinfo.

    If you don't have phpinfo setup to your website, please read this article:

    The phpinfo will provide you all the information about your webserver. You may also approach your hosting service provider to help you out.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
