a challenge?





roee
do you want to make a "frihost php challenge?"
it can be anything to do in php and maybe use mysql or txt file..
eepman
I'm up for it. I just taught myself php, but with my knowledge of other languages, i think i could complete something. I also know how to access mysql. So anything would be good. Smile

ill have ago

i think it would improve my learning on php and mysql

gives me summet to research and code
Ducksteina
This sounds pretty nice.
It should be hard, but not much. Nobody wants to write an own forum. Smile

And those who want to write a forum, can always join the [COMMUNITY PROJECT]Frihost Forum

so what challenges is there?
roee
maybe think about ideas and post them in this topic and then we will choose a center idea for challenge

creating the most secure login system?
asiddle423
my ideas on the secure login would be similar to a banks login system

where you set a password for the system to use
then it asks you for certain letters from that password

it would also need to be encrypted using base64 and/or rotate13
logs ip address
blocks the account after 3 attempts
stop php/mySQL injection attacks

And what's wrong with md5?

Anyway yeah I'm up for something like this so long as it is Frihost based/limited. We could either create new scripts or mods for existing scripts like for phpbb Smile

My Ideas
  1. [MOD]Cash mod for phpbb
  2. [MOD]Quiz mod for phpbb
  3. [SCRIPT]Directory/site listings
  4. [SCRIPT]Generator for meta tags etc
  5. [SCRIPT/MOD]FAQ script or phpbb mod


All I can think of now Brick wall
jabapyth
how 'bout a general script to make mySQL interaction esier?
or a sophisticated image generator?
asiddle423
forgot bout md5
thats good aswell

there are lot of dedicated web pages out there who have already done this. maybe something more than this..it lacks someting. if we want to enhance our skills in php and mysql, maybe we could just use our skills to develop something for frihost. something that they need, work as a team and teach each other..i think that's better.

Done what? We haven't decided what to do yet

Bondings like to code everything himself and anything that would be coded would require existing code to be given to make it work. That isn't going to happen Sad
BlackSkad
Coding something for frihost would be nice, but Bondings is very protective about the source of frihost. He didn't want any help to script the directory (according to n0obie4live, even his sister can not see the script Wink )
So I doubt that the script will realy be used when it is finished. But asking doesn't harm anyone, I guess Smile
Rhysige
MD5 encryption is getting easier to brute force as the size of online rainbow tables grow, the easy way to get around this is use 2 encryptions.. for example you encrypt a password with MD4 then encrypt with MD5.. or even use MD5 twice, this will screw up all online rainbow tables Smile
mathiaus
as this is dying ...

What if I were to run a contest where everyone had to create one of the required functions for a script and then when its over we all get together and try and work out which is the best and how we can improve upon it and do a part every week?
asiddle423
sounds good

brings lots of different styled code together so we can choose the best 1's

and then people might learn something from the chosen script
