A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I’ve learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I’m a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment How to really master MySQL?
Lots of people hate PHP (for various reasons, some of them very good), but its documentation is excellent. One reason you find the PHP docs easier to follow than the MySQL docs is not the nature of the languages but the nature of the documentation.

comment Mysql Connector J lisence
The term "free licence" has a few different meanings. Please [edit] your question to clarify which you intend. While you're at it, add a link to Connector J. I assume they have a website?

revised What do Christians mean by "holy"?
Tidied some grammar. Tidied attribution. It appears that the Meyers Großes Konversationslexikon is an encyclopedia, not a dictionary. Changed link to point directly to entry.

comment "Do Not Disturb" tags in hotels, how can they be improved?
I've never seen signs with just a string: that would be likely to twist. I've always seen a hole in the card which slots over the handle.

I'm stuck, then, but I'm no Server Fault professional. I'd suggest [edit]ing all the above clarifications into the question body itself, rather than leaving them buried in the comments. (Don't do it as "edit to add" notes: that's just messy. Simply incorporate all the information into a rewritten question.)

Which domain are they having trouble with? (For me, www. issues a 301 redirect to the main domain, which works fine.)

@HarshalMahajan. You took code that the OP left in a comment and incorporated it into the question body. That's good. Thanks. But your edit comment was "Improved formatting". What? If I'd been reviewing that edit, I'd have rejected it. The one thing it did not do was improve formatting. Please pay better attention to edit comments, especially for suggested edits. "Incorporated information from comments" is a good one for this situation.
