I know this may sound like a strange question, but it has a point
Anyway, I have been using this method for a while, and have never encountered an issue with it, and I'm about at my wits end to get it working on the current site I'm working on.
Basically, I have a template system that stores the information for each 'page' of my website in the DB (so there's only one page - but it just calls the information from the DB, depending on what's in the URL). So, if I want to edit a page, I have to be logged in as the super-administrator, and then I can edit the PHP for the page, the HTML, the stylesheets, the scripts, etc.
So, my main concern is for editing the PHP that is custom for certain pages - on a new site I'm doing, it won't allow me to save this way. When I create pages (using a form I've created, and on that same site), I can type PHP in and it will save and accept it, but when I try to EDIT it on a page, it won't let me - it will go through the reload of the page and act like it saved it, but nothing will be changed in the DB.
Any ideas on this? The hosting is the same as other sites I've done as well - so I don't think that's the issue either. The editing page I use on this one is the same I use on the other sites, and it will save any information EXCEPT PHP scripts - I really am not sure what to do.
I have a custom php.ini file on my system, but haven't changed any settings (it's there in case I need to). I have also been on with Dreamhost support for about 2 hours on this, and they say it's my problem, and to figure it out here - so ANY help would be GREATLY, GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
