When you try to install magento 1.3.x on Blacknight Unix hosting you may (immediatly) get the following error:
'Whoops, it looks like you have an invalid PHP version.'
Well, don't panic, this is a very similar situation to the one outlined in this earlier drupal post. Your hosting does have the correct version of PHP installed (5.2.x) it's just that the default version is an older one. You just need to disable the older PHP version, wait a few minutes and things should be ok then.
I was half asleep this morning, windows was doing some automatic updates on my laptop, it asked me some questions which I answered as best I could in my hazy state - and now I've got IE8!! Oh Man - I really hadn't planned on that, I hope life isn't gonna get terribly difficult for me now, MS only knows!
Q: How can I remove the 'Submitted by' text that is always displayed with my CCK type?

This post once again deals with how to re-configure some of drupal's default behaviour so that your website more closely matches your target web design.
Q: I was changing some PHP code in one of my blocks, saved it, and now my website won't display at all - how can I fix the problem?
A: This is a real pain, but to get around the problem you can update your drupal database directly to switch off the block, your website should then work again and you can fix the PHP error.
Wouldn't it be great if you could merge the best Content Management System with the best e Commerce system going? Sound too far fetched? Well it's something we've been looking into, mainly because the usefulness of something like this would be simply mind blowing.
Q: How do I get the fivestar widget to display on CCK nodes when using a content template to format the CCK type, I have enabled it for my type but the fivestars widget does not show up at all?
A: If you're using a content template to display your CCK node you have to explicitly add code to display the fivestar widget by outputting the contents of: $node->content['fivestar_widget']['#value'];
