PHP Sockets Loop


$jsonPing = "{\"c\":\"ping\",\"d\":{}}\0";

while (1) {


if($i == 1000) {

$data = "";
$data .= @fread($socket, 4096);
$data = str_replace("\x1f", " ", $data);
$data = str_replace("part", " part", $data);
$data = str_replace("join", " join", $data);
$data = str_replace("said", " said: ", $data);
$data = trim($data);

$jsonData = json_decode($data,true);

if ($jsonData['from'] == "ayt") {

if( ($jsonData['u']) && ($jsonData['t']) && (strpos($data, "said")) ) {
echo $jsonData['u']." : ".str_replace($jsonData['u'], "", $jsonData['t'])."

Check to see which server is which (XML output)

header("Content-type: text/xml");

$getBeta = `/usr/bin/dig A +short`;
$getBeta = trim($getBeta);

$amIBeta = trim($amIBeta);

if ($getBeta == $amIBeta) {
$IAmBeta = "true";
$IAmBeta = "false"; }


Quick header file to use include or require with in PHP:

$mysql_pass = "mysqlpassword";

@mysql_select_db($mysql_db) or die("Unable to connect to database...");

foreach ($_REQUEST as $key => $value) {
$_REQUEST[$key] = mysql_real_escape_string($value);

XInetD config

Just a quickie so I don't have to go dig it up again...

insert a new file under /etc/xinetd.d/ (under Ubuntu, anyway):

# default: on
# description: xinetd service to emulate Flash Remoting banner
service dummy
disable = no
id = dummy
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
server = /usr/local/bin/dumbdumbdumbdumbdumb
wait = no
port = 843

contents of /usr/local/bin/dumbdumbdumbdumbdumb:

echo "Oh, fiddlesticks..."

exit 0

Make sure /usr/local/bin/dumbdumbdumbdumbdumb is +x

Tomcat setup to only listen on localhost (for use with Apache Mod_Proxy)

server.xml changes:

< Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" connectionTimeout="20000" redirectPort="8443"

address=""/ >

Note the "address" section....

httpd.conf for mod_auth_mysql

Auth_MySQL_Info MySQL.Server username password
Auth_MySQL_General_DB DB with auth info

Getting Mod_Proxy to bounce to Tomcat (FINALLY)

This particular problem has been plaguing me for months.  How to make HTTPD proxy to a Tomcat instance.  Finally got it figured out.  BONUS:  Also configured it to authenticate via MySQL before proxying the connection.  This is using a self-signed SSL cert.

Post Vars as an Array

$result_storeList=mysql_query('SELECT * FROM stores');

while($arrayStoreName=mysql_fetch_array($result_storeList)) {
echo "".$arrayStoreName['name']."(put html checkbox here with $arrayStoreName['ID']).(other HTML here)\n";

Submit that to:

$getStore = "SELECT * from stores";
$getStoreQuery = mysql_query($getStore);
while($getStoreArray = mysql_fetch_array($getStoreQuery)) {
        $totalStoreNum = $getStoreArray['ID'];

if(htmlspecialchars($_POST[$getStoreArray['ID']])) {

$storeChoice = $getStoreArray['ID'];

$sql_Query = "INSERT INTO storeItems (storeID,itemID) VALUES ('".$storeChoice."','".$recordID."')";

mysql_query($sql_Query); }


File Uploading

// Where the file is going to be placed
$target_path = "/tmp/";

/* Add the original filename to our target path.
Result is "uploads/filename.extension" */
$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['itemUpload']['name']);

if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['itemUpload']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
    echo "The file ".  basename( $_FILES['itemUpload']['name']).
    " has been uploaded
} else{
    echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";

$localFile = "/tmp/".basename( $_FILES['itemUpload']['name']);

$remoteFile = "/var/www/push/".basename( $_FILES['itemUpload']['name']);

$scp_connection = ssh2_connect('remotehost',22);
ssh2_auth_password($scp_connection, 'username', 'password');

ssh2_scp_send($scp_connection, $localFile, $remoteFile , 0664);

Upload a file via HTTP, then SCP it to another server.  Been using the hell out of this so I can "sanitize" what files get uploaded to the production server (and force them to push it to Dev first).
