Illegal Characters In Php Pages

Aug 30, 2007

I have a cpanel 11 server with php 4.4.6 installed. my site use php scripts and one day even if the file was not edited, not touched at all , i get errors like

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ']' in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-includes/post.php on line 37

I checked and could find a lot of illeagal characters in my php file. See below. for post_status , it became post_statuó and edit_date became edit_date<8d>. If you read through the code, you can see a lot of illegal characters. This is why i get parse errors. I had to replace the file from backup and the issue fixed. But this problem continues to occur for more files and i can't find a reason for this. Again I am the only one with access, I use BBedit to edit php files when needed in Mac OS X, and beleive I know what is being edited and again, those file which gets errors does not need to be edited for nothing, not even to modify wordpress.

iN ( 'draft' == $post['post_statuó'] && empty($postarr['edit_date<8d>]) && empty($postarr['post_date¯]) &&
('0000-00-00 00:00:00' == $post['post_date']) )
$clçar_date = true;
$clear_nate = false;

// Merge old and"new fields with new fields overriting old ones.
$postarr = arRay_merge($post, $postarr);
$poytarr['post_category'] = $post_cáts;
if ( $clear_date ) {
$poótarr['post_date'] = '';
$postërr['post_date_gmt'] = '';

éf ($postarr['post_type'] == 'at|achment')
return wp_insert_atachment($postarr);

Why Non-ssl Pages Are Blank, Ssl Pages Work

Feb 1, 2008

I am moving to a new server. At first the [url]version of the site was fine. I had trouble getting [url]working. Once I had the path to the certificate file correct, I was good to go. So, I started moving data. I also ran some updates on the new server (installed mysql, php, related pkgs). I don't know when the [url]pages stopped working, but I didn't realize it until I had everything moved over and tried to go live. The pages are completely blank. If I view source, I get this: ....

Illegal Content Scanner

May 20, 2009

While reading a lot of posts and blogs about hosting, I just wanted to ask if someone has an idea on how to find files with illegal content.

I just tried a few bash scripts, but if there are a few thousand files, most of them stop working or produce server loads that stop the whole server.

Is there any software already out there or any script to scan the content on server for phrases?

Masking Connection To A Website, Illegal?

Sep 13, 2008

I am not a web host. I do have my own server that I host my company sites on and some of my friends use it as well.

I had someone ask me if I could host about ten pages on my server for him. He said the following," Hello. What is your base hosting price... say for a dozen page static site? (making some Page Rank sites on different hosts to mask the connections to my main website)"

This question gave me an uneasy feeling, but then again I am not familiar with this tactic. I have two questions since the above was asked.

1. Is this illegal by search engine rules.
2. Can my websites be affected if it is.

How would I go about reporting a website for illegal hacking and other activities?

Their host is fully supporting them. They have even given them the ip address of the proxy I used, in which case the client of theirs have added the proxy to their htaccess deny list.

Sell Illegal Templates In CD And Hostgator Will Host It Legally

May 29, 2009

Last week my brother puchased a CD which promised contains thousands of unique templates through [url]

He sell it locally for Indonesia market and leave no contact info.

He showed me and I'm surprised that what did guy did is copied from all sources included majority which is available alot of through the net (example: [url]burn it into CD and sell it illegaly.

I reported the site to and got the followin reply:


Since there are no templates on the site, you will need to provide evidence of this some how.

Richard F.
Network Security Administrator
ISP Blacklist Administrator/Level 3 Systems Administrator
PGP Key: [url]

I'm not trying to bash HG, but I need your opinion: is the HG respond is already correct?

So learn from the same thing, if I set a website sell cracked properties and only delivery the product through CD or email (not downloadble one) I can host it with HG as long as no offensive files in their server? Or in this case HG just ignore it because could not understand Indonesia languange?

Weird Characters

Mar 29, 2008

I'm seeing weird characters on my support home page:

That's found right below "Home > Support"

The source code shows the following...


<td style="padding:0px"><p>Welcome to our Support Area.</p>

I've checked the two template files (header.tpl and homepage.tpl) but did not find such characters. Its boggling me. Not even whitespace.

Characters Displayed

Sep 12, 2007

I have an oddball problem here that I haven't seen.

When you visit, characters are displayed like the files are not being properly read. However, when you visit all works fine. I thought this would be an .htaccess issue and tried simply removing it, but this doesn't fix the issue. I checked httpd.conf and all looks fine there too.

Accented Characters With Apache

Jan 7, 2008

Recently we have moved our Invision Power board (version 2.3.3) from InvisionPower hosting to a dedicated server. On our new server we have:
Apache 2.2.6
PHP 5.2.4
MySQL 5.0.24

Things seem to be about 95% OK, however, there are occasional problems with posting: several members tried to post Hungarian and French characters, like
&#336; &#336; &#368;

These are not getting through, and they get an error:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Apache/2.2.0 (Fedora) Server at Port 80

Members have been asked to try with Explorer, Firefox and Opera, and all get the same results. This is strange, as most Croatian and Serbian characters that are accentuated, like:
&#269;, , &#263;,

These go through just fine, as well as Cyrillic alphabet is OK as well.

Additionaly, one member reported a problem that 3-4 times he got an error while posting (but is usually OK to post), and he writes in Serbian Cyrillic - which seems to be usually fine, but there is an odd problem and error message:

Method Not Implemented

POST to /forums/index.php not supported.
Apache/2.2.0 (Fedora) Server at Port 80

We asked Invision Power Board tech support, however they say that the errors are on the server end in the Apache configuration, and not IPB. Which seems logical, as before the move on the new server (I don't think the old server used to run Apache), nothing like this used to happen.

PHP/DNS/Excessive Null Characters Error?

Apr 5, 2007

I'm having a problem that I've never run across before, and was wondering if anyone might have any ideas as to what may be causing this.

Basically, on 3 of 5 new servers on a brand new private rack from The Planet, we're having what we've narrowed down to be a problem with PHP or Apache. Loading any sort of PHP page with a larger output (even such as a simple 'phpinfo' call) results in, depending on the computer or browser in use:

- The page loading for a split second then reverting to a DNS Server Not Found page (observed in IE)
- The page loading, but filling the source code with vast amounts of extra blank spaces, making a simple phpinfo call download 5+mb of HTML (observed in both IE and Firefox)
- The page loading part way, then hanging (observed in Firefox)
- Occasionally the page will reload over and over again all by itself until it ultimately goes to a DNS error page (observed in IE)

Pages not including PHP, including very long .HTML and .SHTML pages, load just fine.

Here's a link to a page calling a simple phpinfo string, and nothing else (as this is my first post, I can't link directly to URLs, sorry):

Apache :: Characters In URL But Not In Query String

Feb 21, 2013

I have an [URL] ....

I use htaccess to rewrite it to: [URL] ...

and there is a problem, because I do not get what I need. The result is: [URL] .....

The last / sing dous not even matter, because if I write the url without the ending /, the three dots are still removed.

It looks like everywhere in the url the (in regexp) .+/ pattern is replaced with a simple / sign.

The RewriteRule is very simple, I can not imagine it has anything to do with this, but it looks this:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?p=$1 [QSA]

I started to log the rewrite and it looks like if the specific parts of the url are replaced before the rewrite got it.

These are the first few rows of the rewrite log:

add path info postfix: E:/web/service/szerz....odes -> E:/web/service/szerz....odes/action/axgetszerzodesar/ugyfelid/46402/termekid/46032/szerzodesszam/2012.01.01/
strip per-dir prefix: E:/web/service/szerz....odes/action/axgetszerzodesar/ugyfelid/46402/termekid/46032/szerzodesszam/2012.01.01/ -> szerz....odes/action/axgetszerzodesar/ugyfelid/46402/termekid/46032/szerzodesszam/2012.01.01/
applying pattern '^(.*)$' to uri 'szerz....odes/action/axgetszerzodesar/ugyfelid/46402/termekid/46032/szerzodesszam/2012.01.01/'

webserver: Apache/2.2.22 (Win32) PHP/5.2.17
and Apache/2.2.9 (Win32) PHP/5.2.17 (I refreshed it today because of this problem)
os: win7 home premium sp1

It is tested on a linux os too, but there were no such problems.

But after all of this was done I was and I am still unable to connect to mysql anymore with/without password.

SSH Commands - Deleting Files And Escaping Characters

Jun 26, 2008

I have two quick questions.

Question 1
I had a script create a backup of every file on my site using the following format "filename.php.bac". I want to delete these files now and I tired to use "rm *.bac" but that only deleted the files in the current directory. How can I delete ALL those files in EVERY directory and sub-directory starting at the public_html directory?

Question 2
How can I escape semi-colon's (;) in a perl script? I'm trying to run a search+replace script to update some Analytics code and I have a ton of files to update but for some reason if there is a semi-colon in the find varable, it assumes that it has reached the end of the contents in that variable.

Here is the code. Take a look at the $find variable and you will see extra semi-colon's. How do I tell the script to not treat those semi-colons as the end of the variable? .........

Apache :: Get Parameters With Cyrillic Characters In URL String Are Not Visible

Oct 30, 2014

I've migrated from Apache 2.2 to Apache 2.4 few days ago. It is installed as a service on my Windows 7 developer machine and works in bundle with PHP 5.6.2.

Today I've discovered that GET parameters with Cyrillic characters in URL string are empty.

For example URL looks like this:

URL-encoded string here is Иванов (%C8%E2%E0%ED%EE%E2)

When I try to use this GET parameter in my PHP script - the variable $_GET['q'] is empty. If I put latin characters in this parameter - $_GET['q'] is taking the corresponding value.

Doesn't look like it's a problem of PHP as I think. Otherwise at least something should stay in the variable. And also I would like to add that this was working absolutely normal on Apache 2.2.
