how to stop Windows 7 restart after automatic update

Most of the Windows 7 box is configured to do automatic update during mid-night and it will restart your machine.

You may leave your windows 7 running because it is providing services. It might have several VMware guests running on top. A brutal restart by Windows 7 can be horrible.

1 Click the Start menu and type
in the search line and press the enter key. This will launch the Local Group Policy Editor.


On the left side of Local Group Policy Editor, expand to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components. Then scroll down and select Windows Update.


Double click “No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations” option. In the properties window that appears, change the option from “Not Configured” to “Enabled". Click “OK” and close Local Group Policy Editor. Windows will no longer prompt you to restart after automatically installing updates.

install pdflib on cpanel server

If you install directly from within WHM, you will have errors, either


configure: error: pdflib.h not found!



PDFlib extension requires at least pdflib 4.0.x.
See config.log for more information.

That’s because you haven’t got pdflib-lite installed yet.

If you have a rpm based Linux system, you can download pdflib-lite here

and you also need pdflib-lite-devel

To compile the code, you of course need automake, c etc..

Next download pdflib


After you got it, run the following


tar -xvzf pdflib-2.1.8.tgz
cd pdflib-2.1.8
./make install

If you don’t have phpize (you would have phpize command not found error), you need to install php-devel package

finally, open /usr/local/lib/php.ini and add one line


If you have a plain Centos server, you need to create a new file at /etc/php.d/pdf.ini

and add a single line


Don’t forge to restart httpd

in cpanel, run


In plain Centos, run
/sbin/service restart httpd

To test it, create a file called test.php and input one line



now run this test.php in your browser, you should see the pdflib exntension

Ebay Store Integration

If you are selling on ebay and you also have your own online store. You can save a lot of time by syncing the products together.

EBAY API ( ) provides a programming interface so that web developer can sync your 2-store.

Save valuable time and resource by using the Advansys eBay integration module where your ecommerce solution automatically updates eBay via the eBay API (application programming interface) with your chosen products without any manual intervention. Have the ability to instantly list all of your products from your ecommerce website on eBay as a ‘Buy it Now’ product. The eBay integration module allows you to add and remove multiple products giving you full control whilst saving you time and money. It’s the perfect way to easily find valuable new customers.

The beauty of this integral solution is that all processes that you would normally complete on eBay are seamlessly controlled and executed via one single interface. This single interface controls many aspects of eBay, for example, stock and order processing, shipping, order fulfilment and payments.

The integration work will automate the following elements of eBay, second chance offers, submit products to be listed, best offers, counter offers, reclamation of fees for any products unsold, retrieve current listings of ebay categories, retrieve high bid information, leave feedback about other users and display ebay listings on other websites.

We also offer eBay store designs where our designers will customise your eBay page so that it matches the branding on your ecommerce website and keeping your whole company look professional.
why trade on eBay?

Launched in the UK in October 1999 has over 15 million customers and more than 10 million products are sold at any one time via the internet: an ideal virtual shop front for any business who wishes to trade online. From a worldwide perspective has over 212 million customers who buy and sell in more than 50,000 categories: a target market you don’t want to miss out on.

Integrating your ecommerce solution into eBay via their API is a valuable sales tool and gives you another valuable route to market to promote and sell your products online via the internet.
why do you need both an ecommerce site and an eBay store?

There are many reasons why someone would want an ecommerce website that is integrated with an eBay store. If an ebay store becomes really popular with many visitors and transactions, they may want to expand the business and appeal to other markets. The advantage and disadvantage of having just an ebay store site is that you are only really targeting ebay users with ebay or PayPal accounts. An ebay store also doesn’t allow the freedom of adding functionality in the future in the same way that an ecommerce solution can do.

By integrating both the stores into one solution, it gives you and your customer’s one place to find all of your products and services. A professional ecommerce solution can show users that you are a legitimate business and have invested in a website with a distinct brand identity. It also brings the features, functionality and target audience of both ebay and a professional ecommerce website.
