registration / adding to the site

Good morning,

I have been asked to do a site that people can register for automatically and then be able to post a resume.

what is the best way to possibly do this?

Thank you.

Registration is a fairly simple problem, well solved on the various script sites. You’ll want to find a system that does post-back confirmation (the server sends an e-mail to the registered address, and the account isn’t activated until a code link is clicked).

If your members are to post a résumé as plain text, then it’s a matter of a simple CMS (albeit a CMS that doesn’t trust anyone). You should strip out anything from their input that isn’t plain text (code or tags) and store it in a database or something like that.

If they are to upload their résumé as a binary file, say a Word DOC or PDF or something like that, then you have another issue with someone uploading a virus-laden file or the like. Not so much that it would hurt the server, but that anyone who downloaded it later to read it might get infected.

To be fair to you and your client, user-generated content like this is a huge bag of hurt, not something you want to dig into without doing your homework and understanding how things work at a bits-and-bytes level. You might be able to find a script on HotScripts, and it might work, but I wouldn’t necessarily TRUST a script unless I had read it through and understood precisely how it was securing the uploads, or one that I had written myself.

Thank you. I am glad to hear the registration part is fairly simple.

so, to post a resume as plain text as it sounds like the lesser of the 2 evils… how do you do that? what CMS should be used etc?

You’re going to need something custom, because you’re basically making a form that anyone (well, anyone registered) can post to.

A traditional CMS allows an authorized user to modify any content, not just their own. You want the opposite. Using a traditional CMS, even one with a multi-author model, would be massively painful.

This is what I meant by a simple CMS: one designed to serve just this purpose, basically adding a “This is my Résumé” field to the membership data model, storing only plain text, and keeping it completely lowest-common-denominator.

Start by picking out a membership system, preferably one that allows the members to see private content. It shouldn’t be a huge deal to extend it if it’s well written. Post some links to what you find.

Walter,

here is the membership package I think is the most versatile (plus cost effective)

Oh my, this looks very useful. I think you can probably use this without modification to create your résumé form. This is a nicely-abstracted kit, and it allows you to create additional fields on the forms you create with it. I recommend you set this up on your server, following the install directions, and try out the admin system. I think you should be able to create a text field and just let people type that in as they update their “profile” in the membership system.

Walter,

I went to go install and got a 500. I was told that I needed to adjust the apache write permissions… but unsure how do do that.

ALso, maybe I am getting ahead of myself,

how do I integrate the membership signup in this with a FW website?

Thank you

Figure out which folder the error is referring to, and file a support ticket with your hosting provider asking them to set the folder as writable by whatever user Apache runs as on your server.

For a start, I would just get it running, use whatever generic template it comes with, and see if the form it creates and the members-only restrictions it allows you to create will work for you. Baby steps, IOW. My impression was that you could define a restricted folder with this system, and any request to any file in that folder would redirect you to the login if you weren’t authenticated by the system already. So that means you wouldn’t need to do anything in your Freeway files besides upload them into one or another of the protected folders.

Walter

Thank you

Ok,

Thank you I emailed James.

I had uploaded the files through cyberduck and changed the permissions all to 777 through cyberduck.

FYI the error I was getting was:
~~
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, email@hidden and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error
more information may be available in the server error log.

additionally, a 404 not found error was encountered while trying to use and ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I figured I was getting ahead of myself.

Walter,

I talked to James and he told me apache writing was already enabled on the server. I am using cyberduck to upload since there are many files and folders that are part of the program.

He said in a ftp uploader like cyberduck, when you choose a file there should be an option for allowing the app to decide the kind of file the app is uploading and deciding what protocol to use. This could corrupt your files.

I don’t see this option. do you have any better thoughts;

FYI:
when i upload through cyberduck and not change the permissions (leave them at 700)

I get this error:

Forbidden
You don’t have permission to access /install on this server
additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encounters while trying to use and errorDocument to handle the request.

when I change permissions on the Admin and Install folder to 777:

I get the error here:

http://grwblog.com/INSTALL/

any suggestions would be appreciated

The default permissions for a folder that you WANT to be visible to the world are 755. That means (left to right) Owner can do everything, Group and World can read and execute (open and look inside). The Apache server usually runs as an unprivileged user, so whatever applies to World applies to it. This is one of many security measures taken in that server.

James’ advice pertains mostly to non-text files, like images or Flash, and I doubt that’s your issue here.

Have you followed the installation instructions precisely? I suspect you may be trying to do this piece-meal, and not getting the larger picture. You should have a single folder of files when you decompress the download package, and you should mirror that folder (with your FTP application) into your test server’s Web root. Don’t try to install this on a sub-folder at this time. Make a new virtual host with a subdomain (cPanel will show you how) and do everything there. Let this be the entire site and look at it running before you start thinking about how to integrate it with Freeway.

I thought I did, but I will do it again.

So I should place the entire folder phpmambers up into the public_html .

then remove items from that folder into the public_html?

here are the instructions:

I went to go install and got a 500. I was told that I needed to adjust the apache write permissions… but unsure how do do that.

ALso, maybe I am getting ahead of myself,

how do I integrate the membership signup in this with a FW website?

Thank you

Oh my, this looks very useful. I think you can probably use this without modification to create your résumé form. This is a nicely-abstracted kit, and it allows you to create additional fields on the forms you create with it. I recommend you set this up on your server, following the install directions, and try out the admin system. I think you should be able to create a text field and just let people type that in as they update their “profile” in the membership system.

Walter,

here is the membership package I think is the most versatile (plus cost effective)
http://www.phpmembers.com/

my group that I am doing this for is a N-F-P.

You’re going to need something custom, because you’re basically making a form that anyone (well, anyone registered) can post to.

A traditional CMS allows an authorized user to modify any content, not just their own. You want the opposite. Using a traditional CMS, even one with a multi-author model, would be massively painful.

This is what I meant by a simple CMS: one designed to serve just this purpose, basically adding a “This is my Résumé” field to the membership data model, storing only plain text, and keeping it completely lowest-common-denominator.

Start by picking out a membership system, preferably one that allows the members to see private content. It shouldn’t be a huge deal to extend it if it’s well written. Post some links to what you find.

Thank you. I am glad to hear the registration part is fairly simple.

so, to post a resume as plain text as it sounds like the lesser of the 2 evils… how do you do that? what CMS should be used etc?

If I’m reading their directions correctly, you would mirror the phpmembers folder into your public_html folder. The contents of the phpmembers folder would replace the current contents of your public_html folder, in other words. Then you would visit the site in a browser, follow the on-screen directions, and see where it takes you.

would uploading the folder up through cyberduck work then copy all the contents of the folder and paste them into the public_html ?

And isn’t the Public_html where I want to upload the main folder?

I’m sorry to ask all these questions -but this part I am new at with this and want to ensure I understand.

Thank you again!

First of all, you need to create a new subdomain for your testing purposes. Do not try to combine this with another site.

Once you have a new subdomain ready, go into the public_html folder for that subdomain with CyberDuck. There should only be an index.html in it, put there by the cPanel when it created the site root. You can delete that file.

In the left pane of CyberDuck, locate the folder named phpmembers that you downloaded to your Mac. You should see all of the files and subfolders in that main folder on your left pane, and the now-empty public_html folder on the right. Now upload everything from the left to the right.

Make sure when you do this that you allow hidden files to show. There may be an .htaccess file in the downloaded phpmembers folder, and unless you upload that, you won’t be able to do much. Then again, their installer may create one, I don’t know.
