  • online.php called from another domain

    Okay i figured out how to call a file online.php from several domains on the same server as my vB by placing the file online.php in the root of each domain i.e. call http://www.eva2000.com/online.php from this page using SSIhttp://www.eva2000.com/movies/index.shtml

    Problem
    it works but when i close the forum from the admin panel, the included code on other domains chucks a fit and displays a bunch of garbled up text

    is there a way around this so that when i close my forum a simple message is displayed on the online.php output

    i.e. instead of

    forum users: 45 members + 124 guests : Register!

    it would say

    forum status: maintenance be back soon.. : Register

    the file has the following code
    Code:
    <?php 
    chdir("/home/user1/public_html/");
    require("/home/user1/public_html/global.php");
    
    if ($displayloggedin) { 
    $datecut=time()-$cookietimeout; 
    
    //$loggedins=$DB_site->query_first("SELECT COUNT(*) AS sessions FROM session WHERE lastactivity>$datecut"); 
    //$totalonline=$loggedins['sessions']; 
    $loggedins=$DB_site->query_first("SELECT COUNT(*) AS sessions FROM session WHERE userid=0 AND lastactivity>$datecut"); 
    $numberguest=$loggedins['sessions']; 
    //$numberregistered=$totalonline-$numberguest; 
    
    $numbervisible=0; 
    $numberregistered=0; 
    //$loggedins=$DB_site->query("SELECT DISTINCT user.userid,username FROM user,session WHERE session.userid=user.userid AND session.userid<>0 AND invisible=0 AND session.lastactivity>$datecut ORDER BY username"); 
    $loggedins=$DB_site->query("SELECT DISTINCT session.userid,username,invisible 
    FROM session 
    LEFT JOIN user ON (user.userid=session.userid) 
    WHERE session.userid<>0 AND session.lastactivity>$datecut 
    ORDER BY invisible ASC, username ASC"); 
    if ($loggedin=$DB_site->fetch_array($loggedins)) { 
    $numberregistered++; 
    if ($loggedin['invisible']==0 or $bbuserinfo['usergroupid']==6) { 
    $numbervisible++; 
    $userid=$loggedin['userid']; 
    if ($loggedin['invisible']==1) { // Invisible User but show to Admin 
    $username=$loggedin['username']; 
    $invisibleuser = '*'; 
    } else { 
    $username=$loggedin['username']; 
    $invisibleuser = ''; 
    } 
    $location=$loggedin['location']; 
    eval("\$activeusers = \"".gettemplate('forumhome_loggedinuser')."\";"); 
    } 
    
    while ($loggedin=$DB_site->fetch_array($loggedins)) { 
    $numberregistered++; 
    $invisibleuser = ''; 
    if ($loggedin['invisible']==1 and $bbuserinfo['usergroupid']!=6) { 
    continue; 
    } 
    $numbervisible++; 
    $userid=$loggedin['userid']; 
    if ($loggedin['invisible']==1) { // Invisible User but show to Admin

    eval("\$activeusers .= \", ".gettemplate('forumhome_loggedinuser')."\";"); 
    } 
    } 
    $DB_site->free_result($loggedins); 
    
    $totalonline=$numberregistered+$numberguest; 
    
    $numberinvisible=$numberregistered-$numbervisible; 
    
    } 
    
    echo "<FONT FACE=\"Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif\" SIZE=\"1\"><b>forum users</b>:&nbsp;

        Have you tried something along the following lines?
        PHP Code:
        if (!$bbactive) {
          exit();

          didn't work or i might not have put it in the proper place in the online.php ?

            Try adding
            Code:
            $bon = $DB_site->query_first("SELECT value FROM setting WHERE varname='bbactive'");
            if ($bon[value] == "0") {
              echo("Sorry the forums are closed");
              exit;
            }
            right before
            Code:
            if ($displayloggedin) { 
            $datecut=time()-$cookietimeout;

                You'll actually have to do some (kludgy) hacking to the global.php.

                Or you can just remove the global.php require()'ment and do the processing without bothering to check whether the bb is closed.

                  Couldn't you do an eval and check if any errors occured?

                  Or how about adding an '@' to the require function, which should prevent error outputting.

                      What I meant was add the following '@' before the function any PHP won't ouput error messages, instead it will die gracefully.

                      PHP Code:
                      <?php 
                      chdir
                      ("/home/user1/public_html/");
                      @require(
                      "/home/user1/public_html/global.php");

                        You might also consider using '@include()' instead of 'require' as it will continue processing even if was unsuccessful in including a file, as long as the @ is prefixed.

                        Also consider setting 'error_reporting(0)'.
