Installation of Zend Framework on Linux

Hello Friends, if you are trying to install Zend Framework on linux, following steps will help you do so.

    1. We will be using a repository named remi for our installation. You don't need to  know about repository, just run one of following commands according to your server. This will enable remi repository on your server.

  2. Now we will install php-ZendFramwork

yum --enablerepo=remi install php-ZendFramework

  3. Now we have to create a Zend Project, go to any directory and run the following

           cd /home
           zf create project abhishek

  4. Now we have to make changes in apache file. Run following command:

          vim /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

          Make a new Virtual Host:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /home/abhishek/public
    ErrorLog logs/
    CustomLog logs/ common

    Most People make mistake in third line. Document root is public folder and not abhishek folder.

And its Done!!!!!!  Just open your browser and type IP of your server or, whichever works for you and you will see the welcome screen of framework saying,
Welcome to the Zend Framework!
This is your project's main page

This script will rename files as,, 3.xls etc for all files in same folder as scripts:

import os
x = 0
for filename in os.listdir(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))):
    ext = filename.split('.')
    extension = ext[1]
    os.rename(filename, str(x) + '.' + extension)
    x = x + 1



1. extension = ext[1] collects the extension of file. If you skip this line, the files will be renamed without any extension.

2. Script should be in same folder as files. There should not be any folder in the folder.

Tunneling through putty: Accessing a internal website or service outside the network

Hello friends, there are many situation where you have to open a service or website that is neither in your network nor running with a public IP. The site or service is running properly inside the network, but you have to use it outside the network. Is it simple? Yes. 

First you need to download putty.exe. Go, download and then read further. 

All right, let us assume you are working on a local PC, lets say its IP is  There is another website, which you cannot open on your local PC, as this is on different network. If you can access it directly, because of something you have already done, then no need to read further. Lets say you have another server,,  be it different or same as the website hosting server, but it must be on 192.168.3.x network. Then do as below figures:

You will use the port as per the website. In my experience, even if you use any different port, it will work.
Now, put IP of website in destination, port in source port and then add…

from email.MIMEText import MIMEText
from email.MIMEImage import MIMEImage
import smtplib

# Create a text/plain message
msg = email.mime.Multipart.MIMEMultipart()
msg['Subject'] = 'Groove'
msg['From'] = ''
msg['To'] = ''

# The main body is just another attachment
body = email.mime.Text.MIMEText("""Hello, how are you? """)

# KML attachment
att = email.mime.application.MIMEApplication(,_subtype="kml")
