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.

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);

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.

Strange Bot

Jul 4, 2007

I don't quite know what to make of this, but I am getting hits to my search pages with the following:


There are multiple occurrences of this at any one time, and the interesting thing is that it appears to be spoofing the source IP addresses - most are all different with few exceptions.

Has anyone else seen this and know of a solution? Normally I would simply use IP deny but given the addresses appear to be spoofed and too numerous it would be futile.. I thought if I programmed OSC to quit if it matched the keywords might be a decent solution, but so far I haven't had any luck

I searched google and this forum to see if I could find out anything with no luck at all, so I'm guessing this
is fairly new.

mysql -uroot -p

use mysql;

alter table `user` modify `User` CHAR(32);



service mysqld restart

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 :: Access Forbidden If URL Contains Special Characters

Jun 3, 2013

We have many intranet document what linked on our intranet site. We use "apache builed in" directory listing to handle documents on browser, and make accessable to users. Because this not so user friendly we try to use a template (h5ai-[URL] ....) for mod_autoindex.

Unfortunatelly if file or folder name contains special characters (like é,á,ű,ő,ú,ü,ö,ó) than get Access Forbidden - Error 403. If change the folder name, than its ok.

I use xampp. how to solve this.

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.

Strange RAM Status

Aug 22, 2008

This month I just pruchase dedicated server, spec are AMD X2 with 1GB RAM.

On ssh, the memory result is:
root@server1 [~]# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 883 836 47 0 163 397
-/+ buffers/cache: 275 608
Swap: 2047 0 2047

My question:

1. Why the total ram just 883MB? I think it should 1024Mb?

2. The server still empty, but why I see the total used memory is 836Mb?

I only have experience with cpanel vps and when my server empty it only use around 200MB RAM and around 400MB ram usage when my vps load with 30+ account.

Singapore, Singapore Packets lost (70%) 257.4 260.3 262.5

I'm trying to figure out if this is a network problem or a problem with my server. I don't get it, because there are no lost ICMP packets when I ping another hosts from my server, or when I ping my server from home PC.

And here is what server4sale support wrote:


This is what we received from data center and will update you, when they get back to us.

"We apologize for the delay in responding to you. We are aware of an issue that involves our upstream provider, and we have opened a ticket with them to get the issue resolved ASAP. We have asked them to investigate this issue and attempt to isolate the cause. Once we have more information from them, we will update you here in this ticket.

In the meantime, if you note any changes (good or bad), please provide traceroutes BOTH "TO" your server, and "FROM" your server, as well as a 300 count ping summary. This request has been made by our upstream provider, as we will forward any additional pings and traceroutes we receive directly to them. Without the traceroutes both to and from the servers, the information will not be useful for their investigation.

We will provide you with updates thru this ticket as we receive information from our provider. If you have any additional questions, or need further assistance, feel free to contact us. We appreciate your patience, while we work with to resolve this issue."

Second message from support:


The data center has informed that they have not yet received an update from their upstream provider as they used to inform them after performing changes.

However, for better investigation and providing the results more precisely to their upstream provider they have asked you to provide the latest:


1) 300 ping results from your PC to server

2) Traceroute from your PC to Server and

3) Traceroute from Server to your PC

I'd really appreciate if you help me to get these results and isolate the problem.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: URLs With Special Characters - Error 404 Not Found

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: HTTP 414 Errors On URLs Only 256 Characters Long

Oct 29, 2014

My Linux (CentOS) server with Plesk 12 is giving HTTP 414 errors ("URL too long") in response to URLs which are over 256 characters in length. They happen to include a GET variable in the query string which accounts for most of this length, and if I shorten it manually, it works. But I can't change the script to submit a shorter URL or send it by POST, because it comes from an external payment processing server which I don't control.

Adding the following lines to my /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and restarting Apache does not work:

LimitRequestLine 8190
LimitRequestFieldSize 8190

The URLs I'm trying to use are well short of 8190 bytes; they are around 800 characters long.

Is this something that Plesk affects / can control? Is there a way to see what the current maximum setting for URL length is, and to change it?

If Im reading this right these two unprivileged ports are open and talking to my privileged http port 80. Does this seem right? Why would these two ports on my machine have a connection. All this attention was sparked by abnormal spikes in load. Now Im getting paranoid that something may be off even though Im clean when scanning for rootkits etc
