phpABC v1.41 - Cookie support

With v1.41 you can now save your config settings in a browser cookie and/or on the phpABC server. Saving your settings in a cookie increases security since it will only be possible to access phpABC from your browser.

phpABC 1.41
For users of phpABC 1.32 and lower. Unpack phpABC 1.41 into a new directory.

phpABC 1.41 upgrade
For users of phpABC 1.4 . Unpack in your existing phpABC folder.

Hi there,

I’ve been using the old PHP4ABC for ages and discovered today that the project has been discontinued. I then found your website and immediately went to check it out. Very impressive, I must say. I’m glad there’s still development for the wonderful ABC client.
There is, however, a problem I run into. The webserver I use knows me only as restricted user, meaning i can put content on it via FTP, and access it via HTTP as well, but php content is not allowed to write directly onto the server. Now I used the “Save as cookie” option, but pressing “Update configuration” still came up with an error message:

“Warning: file_put_contents(./includes/config.inc) [function.file-put-contents]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /phpABC/config.php on line 121″

It seems it still wants to write to the config.php, despite the cookie-option.
My PHP is as good as my Fortran, therefore I hope you have a solution for my problem ;)

Only the Domain, Port and Key are saved as cookies, the Skin setting is still saved to the config file. You should also get an error on like 157, unless the script hangs on the warning.

I’ll look into making a version that doesn’t need to update any files. In the meantime you could edit the config file manually if you want to use phpABC
