Mambo Problem with PHP 5.3.x

Mambo Problem with PHP 5.3.x

When we updated our Apache and PHP to 5.3.1. This caused our old Mambo installations on our Promutheus server to fail with PDO error warnings. This only affects Mambo and not Joomla installations. We now have a fix so read on as this may happen if you Host company upgrades automatically. 

The error you may see is

 Call to undefined method mosMenu::mosDBTable() in /var/www/mambo/includes/core.classes.php on line 899

This is due to deprecated issues with any version of PHP 5.3.x and upwards. A solution is unlikely as Mambo is not being updated.

Obviously it is better to update to Joomla or Wordpress and we can help wuth that. We ahve toold to migrate or at least extract articles so as to cur the costs of this. IT is important to be using modern safer software so you should update all Mambo asap.

To fix this!

Also we can fix many mambo errors including the above. If we can be supplied with FTP access the above will cost €20.00. We can also fix many of the other Mambo errors so please contact us.

 

Joomla CMS websites

According to the Jooma website.

"Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone."

A CMS is a content management system, this means once set up you can log on and edit and make changes. The website will then show those changes immediately. This s great for many users who want to or need to update their websites. You don't need to pay us to do this, you need little experience as editing a page is similar to editing in a word processor, and we can easily teach you to do this.

Therefore you can firstly update your website in real time when you need to and save money on having it updated!

AND!!! Joomla is free!. However it does need to be set up and set up properly, also there are some additions that you may want, like nice templates, slideshows etc and these can cost money as they are written by independent developers. But a lot of these item are relatively cheap.

So why do you need us? Well it needs to be set up, made secured and set to look and function how you want it to be. Also it needs to be set up to be found in the search engines or no one will see it no matter how good it is.

Once running, it will need maintaning, backups taken regularly, updated for security etc.

Wordpress websites

According to the Wordpress website.

"WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time."

Wordpress started life as a system for mainly blogging. However now it is one of the largest CMS systems used worldwide. Many major companies and projects use Wordpress and whilst for some it is not as "serious" as say Joomla or Drupal it is very polular and easy to use. A whole industry has begun to make great Wordpress websites that are easy from the user side.

While Wordpres is free it does need to be set up and set up properly, also there are some additions that you may want, like nice templates, slideshows etc and these can cost money as they are written by independent developers. But a lot of these item are relatively cheap.

Website Design

Obviously we create websites!!!

We can use CMS systems like this site where you can log on and edit update it your self, and we offer full training and support for this. Sites like this are great to save you money in updating, allow to keep it up too date and fresh.

We design sites in PHP and html. Many sites we have created are totally custom sites from the ground up. We can also create banners, graphics and many exciting add-ons like slideshows and other multimedia items.

Sometimes you have an idea, sometimes just a look based on your business style and stationary sometimes you have no idea! We will work with you to find a site that is usable, effective and presents your online presence to the work in a way you feel reflects the best of your business.

Also we have access to many great template design ideas where we can point you in the right direction and save on the costs of a totally from the floor up project.

When we are working with you, we first after consulting you provide a quotation. This will detail what we have agreed with you, costs and time frames. 

Our terms our simple. You pay upfront the domain name costs, any extras for purchased add-ons and templates is we are using them and aprox 50% of the total project cost.

You pay the balance ONLY a) when it is complted and b) you are totally happy however long this will take.

Usually we start with a temporary website so we can start the SEO process, Recently we had one website featuring in the top 5 results of google even though it was only 50% completed due to the client being busy. We dont want to rush a project but it needs to be found as soon as possible so you can start to get a return on your investment
