Natalya sends Boris a spike!

The PHP cross references officially came online in January of 2006, under the domain. They were moved on August of 2010 to the domain, their present home.

Giga the server

November 2004, Gina’s house, the beginnings of PHPXref.

pentpro, the grey computer in the rack, was our web server running Debian Woody (Compaq Deskpro 6200: Pentium Pro 200MHz, 128MB ram, 4.3GB SCSI drive).

giga, home-built-red media server, was running Debian Sarge (AMD Athlon 3000+ 333Mhz, 1.5GB ram, Western Digital Caviar SATA 400GB, Seagate Barracudas 300GB & 500GB).

Giga served the cross references with grace under pressure, from January of 2006 to December of 2008, when we decided to move to DreamHost because of the increasing traffic.

Our VPS at DreamHost has done a great job of serving the static HTML files, it’s just the constant attacks. The other sites hosted here suffer for it, and this has been going on since 2004.

For the last 15 years, I’ve watched the stupidest scripts attack HTML and TXT displays of PHP code. Weirdly named spiders that spend all day sucking up portions of this website, for what?

Make your own, so much easier, and more eco-friendly.

When we reopen, the front end will be accessible to all, even mobile friendly, but the cross references will be behind password protection. It’s the only way to remain open on a shared server environment.

Over 500 PHP projects, past and present, are sitting in a VM on my laptop, and I find new ones every day. Only 237 of them are featured here due to our VPS space limitations. I’ve thought of increasing the disk space, one click away, but I’m still faced with being in someone else’s home, where I have less control over what I can do to you.

Should you have any questions, please contact the front office.

We are in the process of heavy site maintenance, the cross references are unavailable at the moment, sorry.
