You want to test multiple domains/sites on your local computer. Each site need to run on root level without urls without subdirectory. You have to create multiple vhosts. For each virtual host creata an entry in windows host file: hosts
Run a text editor as administrator to have right to make changes under windows.

Invalid utf8 character string

If you get this error: "Invalid utf8 character string" when you are using iconv you should convert from utf-8 to utf-8 to.

$htmc = iconv("ISO-8859-9", "UTF-8//TRANSLIT//IGNORE", $htmc);
$htmc = iconv("UTF-8", "UTF-8//TRANSLIT//IGNORE", $htmc);

Dont forget: //TRANSLIT comes before //IGNORE

Black-White theme for Notepad++ (for Programmers)

Submitted by n8coder on Fri, 10/01/2010 - 14:40

If you are a programmer who have to stay long hours against a display, you will need always less light and more constast. This means you need a black background and white font color. To do this you need to create a Nopepad++ theme and install it after each NPP install. Instead of this I add my theme here; you just need to save it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\themes\A1_Res_u_Spi.xml and restart/run your NPP as administrator once and in "settings->style configuration" change it to A1_Res_u_Spi.xml. See screenshot/attachment for look of that example.

Notepad++ FTP problem (NPPFtp doesnt work under Windows7)

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 09/28/2010 - 21:07

If you run MS Windows 7 and just installed Notepad++ you will recognize a problem later. You run NPPFtp and try to create a FTP profile. Whether changes to "profile settings" or "general settings" will be lost. Because when you dont run Npp as administrator, NPP will not have rights to create that profile files. But you will not get feedback, error messages etc. Therefore run Npp as administrator firstime and later as normal user. Run as admin when u need profile changes or add a new ftp/ssh server etc.
