Hi,
#to put html use the following example:
Code:
<img src="http://websitenamehere.com/imagename.jpg">


I dont use html codes since my website is Ravenuke Powered which uses FCKeditor.

#I dont know which particular module you are talking about but I am using a video streaming module which is good enough. you can get it at Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

#to make a block use the below example:

Code:


<?php
if (eregi("block-imageblock.php",$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])) {
    Header("Location: index.php");
}

$content = "";

$stuff = <<< End_Stuff
PUT YOUR HTML CODE HERE

End_Stuff;

$content .= $stuff;
?>


Put your html codes Example:
Code:
<a href="http://yourwebsitename.com"><img src="http://websitename.com/imagename.jpg"></a>



Save the block as block-imageblock.php ( or anything you would like to) and upload it into your block directory eg: /blocks/block-imageblock.php

Activate the block and you are done.


#To keep your site safe and secure simply follow the steps
1. Back up your website at least once a week. Do it more often if you are adding a lot of content to the website or blog. Back up the website code and also back up the website database (can be done through Cpanel or Phpnuke Administration Menu ).

2. Keep your softwares/scripts/modules/versions upto date. Keep up with your security updates. Install them immediately when they're released.
3. Don't steal softwares Wink
4. Change your passwords regularly and don't share your passwords with others
5. Don't use obvious usernames like admin, administrator, sysadmin for your account names
ANd lastly, but not the least, switch to RavenNuke if possible since it is the most secure Nuke;)

have you searched the forum before posting your questions? Please do so if you haven't! All the above questions have already been discussed. Laughing

Hope these tips help you along the way;)

REad Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! you will find most of your answers there! and secondly and the most important while in the forums... please search the forums becoz almost all the questions which you asked have already been discussed.

You can change your passwords whenever u feel is ok. As for me, I changed the passwords at least once in 2 weeks. I do database backup every three days! Wink

You can backup your site database using Cpanel as well. Or phpMyAdmin. To backup the entire files use FTP and transfer it into your PC.

ok i ftped the www folder and public_html folder to my desktop. do i ftp every folder or is this fine.


secondly i checked out all threads and none can refer to my problem. i have no idea how to backup my db

when i go to my admin panel, and click on backup db i get this:

Previous versions of PHP-Nuke and RavenNuke(tm) provided a backup routine that could be accessed from the Administrative Control Panel (ACP). In testing for the RavenNuke(tm) 2.20 release we found that (a) the program had serious bugs that produced invalid backup data and (b) in most server conditions, due to the expansion in the number and size of the MySQL tables, the backup process could not be run successfully.

As a consequence, we have decided to at least temporarily remove the backup program from the ACP.

There are two alternatives that are preferable to using an ACP based backup process. The first is to check with your host to see if it provides an automated and regularly scheduled MySQL dump process. Usually these are located on your cPanel or vDeck or other host management panel. Since there are many varieties of hosts involved, it is up to you to talk to your host and make arrangements for this. The second alternative is to use phpMyAdmin and dump your files with that tool. Again, while most hosts provide access to phpMyAdmin, it is up to you to make those arrangements.

In arranging to dump your data, you should also take a look at options for restoring it. As we stated above, many hosts place resource limits that will make restoring a typical NUKE database impossible without additional tools. The one we highly recommend is BigDump which can be found at:

We strongly recommend that you download, install and test BigDump in conjunction with your chosen backup method before you reach a crisis situation where the restore needs to be run immediately

Yeah, so what part of that don't you understand? Smile Smile Smile

When I was on shared hosting, I used phpMyAdmin to backup my database. See if your host provides that to you.

It's host dependent. We can't know unless you give us your login details. If you have cPanel or Plesk there is usually a way to drill into your databases and launch phpMyAdmin on them. See if your host has any FAQ's or guides.
