Does any of your software contain ads or spyware?
No, absolutely not.
Does your software work on tablets / mobiles?
All new software is built to be responsive for tablets / mobiles. Older software will be updated, so please refer to the relevant website.
Does your software work on Windows and Apache servers?
Yes, it will run on both platforms.
Does your software work with PHPv7.0?
Yes. Maian Script World build and test with the latest PHP versions, but please check the relevant software website for more information.
How do I generate a licence for your software?
Please log into the licence centre
and follow the instructions.
Does your software work with PHPv4.0 / v5.0?
PHP4 is simply too old and is no longer supported in the latest builds. PHP5 will also be dropped in the future, so for security you should
always use the latest versions. Please check the relevant software website for system requirements.
Why should I buy any commercial software from you?
Firstly, my support is second to none. You`ll get a reply from me quickly, even at the weekend. Second, unlike other software companies who outsource work, you are in contact with the developer directly. Issues are fixed in minutes, rather than days or months.
And third, I like to think I offer great value for money. All future upgrades are free.
Does your software work with register_globals ON or OFF?
Register_globals has been a main bugbear of PHP when it comes to security. Many exploits are down to poorly coded scripts and register_globals being enabled on a server. All my software will work with register_globals ON or OFF, however if you have access to your PHP.ini file it is recommended they run with this set to OFF.
The PHP development team are addressing the issue of register_globals in future PHP versions.
How secure is your software?
I like to think they are very secure, but minor security flaws do appear from time to time as it does with all software. If you do hear of an exploit in any of my software, please let me know and I`ll update it. In general, all security issues are fixed within 24hrs of them being reported to me.
Can I remove the copyright notices in the software?
Yes, please see the licence
page for more info or the relevant software website.
Can I resell or rebrand the software?
Yes, if a white label licence is available. Check the relevant software website.
Can you recommend a good hosting company for your software?
There are many good hosts and I don`t endorse any particular one as everyone has different experiences. Shared servers are NOT recommended and should
never be used. Use a good quality VPS or Dedicated Server for better performance.
Do you offer software installation services?
Yes, please see the installation service on the relevant software website.
Are older versions of your software available?
All older versions of my software have been discontinued and are no longer supported. If you require an older version, you can contact me
, but I can`t promise I`ll make it available.
What guarantees do you offer when using your software?
There are no guarantees. All software is a work in progress and may contain small bugs. You use them at your own risk as you do any software. I would encourage anyone who finds a bug to report it to me as soon as possible. Thanks.
Can I hire you to do custom programming work?
Yes. Please contact me
with more details on the kind of work you require and I`ll get back to you. I can`t always guarantee I can help, it depends on my current workload and the turnaround time you are looking for.
I need to submit a support ticket. Where`s the link?
A support ticket system isn`t currently available. Please see the support options here
If I pay a donation to remove the copyright, can I rebrand the software and sell it as my own?
No. Should you wish to rebrand any software, please contact me
or check the relevant software website for a white label licence.

Sure. If the right offer comes along and its genuine, I may be tempted.
