Some scripts and snippets to simplify your tasks Joomla
In this repository, you'll find a few scripts that I've written for my own use. Perhaps one of these scripts will be useful for you too.
Display a nice bootstrap images carousel on your Joomla website. This script is straightforward : put images in a folder of your website and add just one line in your Joomla's article to get the carousel.
Easy way to display a carousel on any Joomla website. Use Bootstrap, ReReplacer and Sourcerer of Register Labs.
Quickly check if your database is up and running and obtain the list of tables (and number of records in each of them.
check_db.php will retrieve the database's configuration from your Joomla's
configuration.php file and will establish a connection with your server. In case of failure, you'll obtain technical informations about the encountered error.
Want a very easy way to take a dump of your Joomla's database ? Don't want to enter to your admin or hosting cpanel ? Perhaps you don't have such access (just FTP and nothing else).
dump_db.php script will generate an extract of your database and immediatly send it to the browser (there is no file generated on the server).
Want a fast way to clean your database ?
kill_db_tables.php will display the list of tables found in your database and, thanks to a filtering, you'll define a pattern like f.i. "backup" for matching every tables with that word in their names. Then, after confirmation, the script will remove these tables from your db.
Small implementation of a FTP connection to retrieve and download a file from an another server. You can use this file to, for instance, download a big file from one FTP to an another without, first, download the file on your computer.
