So it’s been a while hasn’t it? It’s August, I haven’t wrote here since January, wow, I hadn’t realized it was that long, does it matter though? Not much has changed, gotten worse actually, but that’s life I guess.
So I went to bed last night with a fully functioning website, I woke up this morning with one that looked like this:
Yeah I think there is something wrong there.
I spent hours trying to figure it out, I thought maybe I was hacked. I know I didn’t do anything to it to make this happen. So after hours searching I find that it’s a PHP problem and these errors only show up with Mambo CMS when you try and use PHP 5.3.6 with it as it’s not compatible.
I knew I didn’t change the PHP version so I emailed GoDaddy support and they told me no we didn’t do anything it must be something you did.
So after some time messing with the code I got access to the backend of the site and did some snooping around and I found my site is using PHP 5.3.6 !!!
Here’s a screenshot:
I’ve sent GoDaddy support this screenshot five times now and they still keep telling my that no I’m not running that version of PHP and they keep sending me some copy and paste response. They will not acknowledge the fact that they update the PHP without my knowledge, they should have told me they were going to do this.
Here’s the PHP info where you can plainly see I’m running PHP 5.3.6:
I have numerous emails where they insist that I’m NOT running PHP 5.3.6! Really? Then how the fuck do you explain that what I have above?
I mean seriously I get tons of spam email crap from GoDaddy about all kinds of offers, they couldn’t have let me know about something important like this?!
What pisses me off the most is that I lost $100 in advertising income because of this, I was planning on putting that aside and buying my kids their school supplies with it.
Not to mention of course the other income I am losing as well because the site isn’t exactly in working order.
GoDaddy will not admit they did anything wrong, when it plainly shows right there that I’m running PHP 5.3.6. I did not upgrade it to that, so someone else did. I highly doubt that someone hacked into my account and changed the PHP version so that leads me to they did something on their end.
No, I don’t mean my actual life I mean the website MyLife.com
I’ve never joined them, never knew about them until I found myself listed on their site four times.
Since 2009 I’ve been asking them to remove me from their website and they refuse to. I never joined the site. They added me without asking and emailed me about confirming my membership. I never confirmed it, I ignored it. Forgot about it actually. I’ve emailed them four times now since September of last year asking to be removed and they won’t respond.
In their TOS it says, and I quote:
To request that a Member Profile or Public Profile be deleted, please contact Customer Care at 1-888-704-1900 or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon receipt of these requests, and confirmation that you are requesting that your own profile be removed, please allow MyLife 10 business days to complete this removal. It may be necessary to contact you to validate that you are the profile owner requesting the removal. This is to ensure the correct identity and profile ownership before completing these requests, and is for the protection of our users and their privacy.
But apparently they don’t care to abide by their own terms or service.
I want removed from their site and I also want my deceased mother removed as well but they refuse to respond to my emails at all.
Stay away from MyLife.com as all they care about is collecting data on people and using it for whatever purposes they deem fit.
They don’t respond to emails even though it says right there to email them about being removed. it says it takes 10 days, but I’m at 8 months now since the first email with no response. So they’re liars in my book, and I hate liars.
