Thanks! I used this for starting services and didn't know one could launch drivers in this way. No dependencies in this case so it works great!

comment With Windows 7, why is an entry in the hosts file not working?
This is not accurate. I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I don't have time to test for tab or other number of spaces, but I have entries that work with 6, 7 and 8 spaces.

comment Permissions on a typical shared Linux web host
Picture starting to get clearer here. So you are saying no matter how the server is configured (special users, apache etc.), the file and folder permissions can in no way affect the access permissions of a visitor's browser? If I want to control browser access I need to use .htaccess files or obscure folder names etc.

comment Permissions on a typical shared Linux web host
So, you are saying (in a rather round about way) that typically on a shared hosting setup, the USER permission affects what the PHP script running on the server can do, right? And so in that case, unless there is a very special scenario, the GROUP permission should not be more constraining than the USER setting, right? What about a visitor's browser permissions? Is that equal to OTHER?

comment Permissions on a typical shared Linux web host
Thank you for clarifying the name confusion. My FTP program (Filezilla no less) uses OWNER, GROUP and PUBLIC and I didn't know this wasn't the proper Linux names. I'll edit my question to avoid confusion. I think the other information in your answer isn't relevant or I am still missing soemthing big here.

comment Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061), but can via PHP
Brilliant! That was it. Just for reference. I put bind-address=127.0.0.1 under [mysqld] in my my.ini file
