1) Pausing RSS scroller:

2) http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsspausescroller/

3) I have the script and demo installed on my server, and the cache folder is set to allow full permissions. Cache files are being created upon execution of the scripts, but I still get the message:

I give up trying to fetch RSS feed.

I am running on a Windows 2003 server with PHP 5.2 installed. Other RSS feed scripts work properly, but this one does not.

The demo file can be found here (http://devel.integrateny.com/rss/demo.htm)and here (http://devel.integrateny.com/rss/lastRSS/demo.htm)

The first uses the folder structure and unmodified files contained in the .zip, in the other I have tried to put all the files into one folder with no change to the results.

Where's your scrollerbridge.php file located? I couldn't find it per the referenced path inside your demo (both first and second). In other words as of now the script cannot even locate scrollerbridge.php, as the path to it inside the .js file is incorrect. Make sure to perserve the original structure of the zip file when uploading the demo. For example:

Odd... It's in that location.

It can be seen when browsing the directory, but whenever it's opened in the browser it appears as though it's not there.

Ok, so I solved the problem of the missing scrollerbridge.php (had something to do with the way PHP 5.2 was installed). Now I can interract with that file as seen here (http://devel.integrateny.com/rss/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=dynamicdrive).

However, the demo.htm still times out as seen here (http://devel.integrateny.com/rss/demo.htm).

Any help?

My php configuration can be seen here (http://devel.integrateny.com/test.php).

For those who might want to know in the future...

The installer package for PHP 5.2.0 on Windows Server 2003 is crap... I had to manually configure it to run PHP in ISAPI mode no matter what options I chose in the installer it did not work.

In short, this was not an issue with the script, but with the windows implementation of PHP.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the update. PHP in windows seems to be giving people more grief than its Linux counterpart, at least when it comes to the LastRSS script.

PHP for windows, as you may be aware, has some serious issues. Things are just disabled, etc. For my hosting company, the mail() function works great on linux. But for the one account I have on windows, it does nothing. Might be a specific issue to the host. However, again, windows with php is weird.
