HP chat support - how to get some
article #438, updated 1874 days ago

The excellent Mike Martinez found this:

http://h50203.www5.hp.com/HPISWeb/Customer/Product.aspx?option=activechat&origin=acc&callfrom=hp&ctype=d&cc=US&fromAD=1

which works for many products. If it doesn’t find your part number and serial number, try the “HP Support Wizard”:

http://h50203.www5.hp.com/wclweb/wclentry.aspx

And if that doesn’t work, we have:

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/contact.html

As of this writing, there is a link on the far right of the above to a page entitled “HP Products”, subtitled “Live chat with HP support specialist”. On that page, enter the product name, not any number. Here is a direct link:

Setting up a web file manager
article #387, updated 1958 days ago

A web file manager can be a very useful tool. The best one I have found so far is this:

http://pfn.sourceforge.net/

One of these needs special PHP settings to run well (especially to handle large files), and if you’re using hosted web services, you’ll want to do this by special lines in the .htaccess file. The below is satisfactory if your provider’s web server is very powerful with lots of space reserved for you; if not, reduce reduce reduce!!!!!

php_value memory_limit -1
php_value upload_max_filesize 800M
php_value post_max_size 800M
php_value max_execution_time 50000
php_value max_input_time 50000
