Drupal 7 create a user using rest and curl

<?php
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"http://base_url/user/login");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'PHP script');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "cookie.txt");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, 'cookie.txt');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "name=username&pass=password&form_id=user_login");
ob_start();  //dont print out this output 
curl_exec ($ch);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"http://base_url/drupal7/test_endpoint/users");

Drupal 7 connect to Drupal with curl and use rest services

<?php
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"http://base_drupal_url/drupal7/user/login");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'PHP script');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "cookie.txt");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, 'cookie.txt');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, 
"name=username&pass=password&form_id=user_login");
ob_start();  //dont print out this output
curl_exec ($ch);

Writing regular old JQuery the regular way in Drupal 7

This doesn't use the Drupal behaviors or attach detach stuff, just plain old jquery straight up:

(function($) {
   $().ready(function() {
     alert('hello');
   });
   $('#submit').live('click', function(){
	      alert('ack!');
	    });
})(jQuery);

this works and says hello to you on page load, and upon clicking a submit button wrapped in a div with an id of #submit:
it says 'ack!' to you

Note you only need to wrap your javascript one time with the

Setup for running stored procedures and sql from php / ubuntu on sql server

1.)

sudo apt-get install php5-sybase

2.)

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

3.) Third you need to do this: (copied from the internet -- tested it and it works, it will allow you to run stored procs)

In researching the problem before posting I saw references to configuration changes needed to FreeTDS, but apparently I was implementing the change wrong, but that is the solution.

Drush Commands

I'll add notes to this at a later time.

To download a module (masquerade in this case) using drush type in:
