Managing Test Users in Facebook

Today I found this cool little application to help create and manage test users for facebook application development. It sounded easy to install so I went ahead and downloaded it.
Facebook Test Users Manager

After installation, I came across couple of issues.

The first one was that in the .htaccess file that came along with the project, the developer had this line:

php_value xdebug.profiler_enable 1

I do not have xdebug enabled on my machine so this caused a misconfiguration error. I had to comment it out.

The second issue was that I was getting the following message:

"SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed".

After a google search came up with this fix (instead of disabling the verification):

  1. download mozila.pam file. See this page for more info:
  2. copy file to C:WINDOWS\system32
  3. Add this to $CURL_OPTS array in facebook.php:

CURLOPT_CAINFO => 'C:WINDOWS\system32\mozilla.pem'

That̢۪s it. I hope it helps somebody

Enable pgpass under Windows 7

Last year I have written a post about enabling pgpass under Windows XP . Today I repeated the procedure for Windows 7. Basically everything worked as before, with the following exception - the APPDATA directory in Win 7 is different. What I did first was to check the name of the user running PostgreSQL server process. Then log in as that user and find out where is the APPDATA directory for that user. echo %APPDATA% From that point on, just follow the instructions in the previous post. Good luck!

Numeric Drop-down With PHP ranges

Here is an easy way to generate form numeric drop-down with ranges. $form = new Zend_Form(); $ranges = array( range(1, 20, 1) , range(30, 100, 10) , range(200, 1000, 100) ); $a = array(); foreach ( $ranges as $range ) { foreach ( $range as $r ) { $a[$r] = $r; } } $form->addElement('select', 'quantity', array( 'label' => 'Quantity' , 'required' => false , 'class' => 'form-control' , 'multiOptions' => array( '' => '--Select--' ) + $a )); Please note that the ranges are with different steps. Here is the result:
