please check the following code.

$imagebaseurl = 'support/content_editor/uploads/$name';

The $imagebaseurl is a variable that is containing a link to my image folder (uploads) and inside the folder I have some other folders which are named after my users name. for example: I have a user who's name is john, so the the link should look like this-> support/content_editor/uploads/john.

The main idea is when any user is logged in and browses his image gallery I want to take him to his own gallery which basically is named after his name.

When he will visit the gallery the value of $name in the link will come from the user's login name (from session). Now the problem is as you probably have already understood that the placement of $name in the above link is wrong and that is why it is not working. I am getting this whole URL> (support/content_editor/uploads/$name) instead of (support/content_editor/uploads/john)

Now could you please tell me how to use the $name in this $imagebaseurl = 'support/content_editor/uploads/$name';


$imagebaseurl = 'support/content_editor/uploads/' . $name;


$imagebaseurl = "support/content_editor/uploads/{$name}";

Note that if you use double quotes, you can also write the above as:

$imagebaseurl = "support/content_editor/uploads/$name";

It's good though to get in the habit of using {$...} in double quotes instead of only $..., for times where you need to insert the variable in a string where it's not obvious to PHP which part is the variable and which part is the string.

If you want the best performance, use string concatenation with single quotes.

Here's what worked best for me when trying to script this (in case anyone else comes across this like I did):

$ pecl -d php_suffix=5.6 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

$ pecl -d php_suffix=7.0 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

$ pecl -d php_suffix=7.1 install <package>
$ pecl uninstall -r <package>

The -d php_suffix=<version> piece allows you to set config values at run time vs pre-setting them with pecl config-set. The uninstall -r bit does not actually uninstall it (from the docs):

vagrant@homestead:~$ pecl help uninstall
pecl uninstall [options] [channel/]<package> ...
Uninstalls one or more PEAR packages.  More than one package may be
specified at once.  Prefix with channel name to uninstall from a
channel not in your default channel (

  -r, --register-only
        do not remove files, only register the packages as not installed

The uninstall line is necessary otherwise installing it will remove any previously installed version, even if it was for a different PHP version (ex: Installing an extension for PHP 7.0 would remove the 5.6 version if the package was still registered as installed).

have you tried this?

foreach ($this->cron_hooks as $name => $options) {
    echo "Hook '$name' will run every ${$options['frequency']} seconds.";

$query = "INSERT INTO `" . $mysql_tb . "`
VALUES ('".$studno."','".$firstname."','".$lastname."')";

Never used any of those, but they look interesting..

Take a look at Gearman as well.. more overhead in systems like these but you get other cool stuff :) Guess it depends on your needs ..
