I am using codeigniter as a framework, and it keeps logging users out.

- it ethier logs out randomly after a few minutes, or hours.
- it logs out when a user updates their order
- then as an admin if i get logged out randomly, and i log in into another account, it logs me back to the first account (the one i got randomly logged out from).

Whats the issue here? i found that i need to change the session time, but im not sure its working for me.

We have an intranet that's behind a username/password page and one of our biggest struggles is search. We've implemented a basic search tool and it does okay at best. If searching for the word book, it'll return pages with the word book in it. However, it runs into issues when using multiple words, quotations, and does not rank the results for the user. Our intranet is using php and CodeIgniter. I looked around at codecanyon.net for php search engine scripts, but nothing really stuck out to me. Does an expert have a suggestion on what a good search solution might be for an intranet?

My manager asked me updating a website from codeigniter to  
backend: API using PHP (Symfony) or node (expressjs) or Drupal 8 . or any other framework. can you give me explanations?

And for single page applications Angular 4 or Vue js
Hello! I'm trying to select some information from my database using drop-down lists, but when I pass my variables from my controller to the view, I get the "undefined variable" error. I can't understand why I get this error, because I've implemented other functions in a similar way and they worked. Also, I know the function in the model works, because I get my info using print_r.

This is my controller function.

This is my model function.

This is my view.
this is my view
This is the error I'm getting.
And this is what I get when I use print_r to see what my function in the controller is returning. It's correct,  just can't post it.
Please, help me!

This is what I am working with:

  • IIS 10
  • Codeigniter 3

This is what I have done:

Installed IIS URL Rewrite 2.1

Modified the web.config file that is located in the application folder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <rule name="Index">
            <match url="^(.*)$"/>
                <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/>
                <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/>
            <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php/{R:1}"/>

Open in new window

Modified the config.php file:

$config['base_url'] = '';
$config['index_page'] = '';

Open in new window

Modified the autoload.php file:

$autoload['helper'] = array('url');

Open in new window

The results:

When I go to it works fine. When I remove the index.php I get the following error: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am working with some folk who are using Expression Engine Version 2. something.  They are considering upgrading to the latest version.  I know that version 2 and version 3 have a different directory setup.  Is there any definitive docs on how to upgrade with minimal pain? Tutorials? Plugins? How to videos?  I'm in the exploratory phase of this project and will appreciate any input on upgrading EE from 2.... to 3.0 - 4.0 and beyond!
I have an admin panel in codeigniter project.
There is a sidebar (<ul> <li>xxxxxx</li> </ul>) at the left and the content area in the right.
I store the content of the relevent option of sidebar in a variable , i.e the whole view and show inside a particular div in the right side content.
The functionality is working , but i want to do this without page load (i.e, by using ajax)
Here is the code in my master page
But it does not seem working

I shall be thankful if you kindly look into the issue

        e.preventDefault(); //To prevent the default anchor tag behaviour
        var url = this.href;
        $('.content').load(<?php $this->load->view('admin/manage_student_form',$data, TRUE); ?>);

$('#MyFlex') .flexOptions({ url: urlAction, newp: 1 }).flexReload();

here is my controller:

class Site extends CI_Controller

	function index()

		$data = array();
		if($query = $this->site_model->get_records())
			$data['records'] = $query;

	function create()
		$data = array(
			'title' => $this->input->post('title'),
			'content' => $this->input->post('content')


	function update()
		$data = array (
			'title' => 'My NEW UPDATED title',
			'content' => 'NEW UPDATED content; UPDATED'


	 function delete()



Open in new window

Here is my model:

class Site_model extends CI_Model {

	function get_records()
		 $query = $this->db->get('assets');
		 return $query->result();
		// $query = $this->db->query('SELECT * FROM assets');
	    //echo $this->table->generate($query);


	function add_record($data)
		$this->db->insert('assets', $data);

	function update_record($data)
		$this->db->where('id', 3);
		$this->db->update('assets', $data);

	 function delete_row()

I am getting these errors: errors
Where am i going wrong ? i have tried exhaustively to search for answer or hint but i am lost, i am obviously pretty new to codeigniter.

The problem I'm facing is in the pagination part, while searching using the restaurant name, it retrieves all the records but while moving to the next page of the pagination link the total row count is set to 0, although retrieving the data values from backend.

In the else part of my controller res_search(search controller) the search is being carried out for using the location options, and its working fine.

**res_search (CONTROLLER)**

 public function index()
	    $where_clause = "status = 'Y' ";
        $search = ($this->input->get("resTitle"))? $this->input->get("resTitle") : "NIL";
        $search = ($this->uri->segment(3)) ? $this->uri->segment(3) : $search;

        $total_row_res=  $this->common_model->res_count($search,"") ;
        $limit = 3;        

        $config['base_url'] = base_url()."res_search/index/$search";
        $config['total_rows'] =  $total_row_res;
        $config['per_page'] = $limit;
        $config["uri_segment"] = 4;
        $choice = $config["total_rows"]/$config["per_page"];
        $config["num_links"] = floor($choice);   
        $config['full_tag_open'] = '<ul class="pagination">';
        $config['full_tag_close'] = '</ul>';
        $config['first_link'] = false;
        $config['last_link'] = false;
        $config['first_tag_open'] = '<li>';
        $config['first_tag_close'] = '</li>';
        $config['prev_link'] = 'Prev';
