PHP Error: Operation completed successfully
July 21, 2006 5 Comments
I don’t care much about php actually. My only encounter with php was in university, the assistant of a course assigned a homework about creating a simple dvd shop kinda web application with php. Anyway I found it to be too primitive and never used php again. There were many php fans at that time, still too.
Me and my main man Mert were trying to build an information base for our project we are currently working for. After setting up the wiki, we moved on with installing a forum and bind it to our exhange server’s mailing infrastructure. First thing we’ve done is to install apache server, than mysql and than the php stuff. The installation of forum went ok with phpmyadmin stuff and only thing remaining was to integrate mailing list to the forum. Phpbb forum does not ship with a built-in mailing list integration but there is a plugin for it called mail2forum(m2f). By the way I really liked the pluggable structure of phpbb, you can install new plugins(mods in php world) easily, there is also a third party mod installer for phpbb. But still I don’t care about php.
Long story short, this “error” was displayed after installing the mod installer called easymod. Check out this stupid error message from the screenshot below:)
I guess the meaning of success is not enough in php. An operation must be completed “perfect“, successfull or good is not enough in php world. I also think the guy who wrote this is a perfectionist, good thing in software development.
