    Yii and instagram API PHP

    Instagram is a free photo-sharing program and social network that was launched in October 2010. The service enables users to take a photo, apply a digital filter to it, and then share it with other Instagram users they are connected to on the social network as well as on a variety of social networking services.

    Too many developed great apps for this platform such as which is a great implementation of the public API.

    instagram gives developers a great API, however there’s a php API of course based on the original instagram API but much more simpler to use in your PHP project.

    This API called PHP-Instagram-API .

    To use this API in your Yii project please download it from here.

    extract to downloaded ZIP file. You will see three folders “Examples”, “Instagram”, “Tests”.
    Just take “Instagram” folder and place it under “protected/components/”.

    I created a nice class and called it InstaConnect, which you can place all your functions inside it (in components folder).

  • MAMP, phpMyAdmin “The server is not responding” Error.

    I’m using MAC OSX Lion 10.7.3, I had a problem with MAMP, in general starting mysql and apache along with previous installed mysql on the system.

    I managed to start mysql (included in MAMP) by executing the following command in terminal: sudo killall -9 mysqld

    anyway after struggling in getting mysql to work, of course with a different port on the system which is 8889, I had another problem when going to phpMyAdmin:

    It seems that many users tracked the problem to the browser cache. The consensus is to clear out the browser cache when this problem occurs. I have tried this several times already, and it is doing the trick. Each time I get the red error screen in phpMyAdmin, I clear out the cache in Firefox, close down the browser. and then reopen the MAMP admin page. I can once again access the phpMyAdmin panel.

    for a bad day I had another bad issue after upgrading my Firefox to 10.0.1.

    after deleting my MAMP 2.0.5 and reinstall MAMP 1.9.4 problem still exists !!!!!!!!
    after an hour searching I tried access phpMyAdmin from Safari guess what it worked !!!!!!
    firefox 10.0.1 has problems with phpMyAdmin, for some reason some scripts is broken on it.
    so my bad day ends in hating firefox new update which is 10.0.1, and switching to Safari for the time being.
