How do I Format a number with leading zeros in PHP

I want to be able to have a variable with a fixed number of digits. If the variable is less than the fixed number of digits I want to add some leading zeros. For example if I have a number 7654321 and I want the fixed number of digits to be eight the resulting variable should be 07654321

Is there a PHP function for that?

How do I stop users from clicking a button multiple times?

I have an old VB.NET web forms application that has a function that takes 30 seconds or so to run when a button is clicked. I need to prevent users from clicking the button multiple times while it is still processing.

Somehow disabling the button to prevent multiple submissions is the ideal for this application. How can I do this?

Reasons for Selecting LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Php)

Although CCD does most of its work using Microsoft products, many people come to us asking about LAMP. The standard reasons for selecting LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) instead of combination of other software programs, servers and operating systems include:
All of those are open source resource. Security of linux can be much greater than that for windows. Apache can be a better server that IIS both in functionality and security. Mysql is the most popular open source database in the world. PHP is faster than asp or other scripting language.

Database Management with MySQL and PHP

Hello CCD:
Our organization is looking for some help with MySQL and PHP. We have a database of clients and potential clients- We would like to publish some of the information in this database on the web so that our team members across the country can easily access it. Is this the sort of computer consulting that you do? I guess you would call it database management.

SQL Server 2008 problem in Germantown, Maryland

We have our data (mostly HR data in the HROffice system by Ascentis) in a SQL Server 2008 database. We are having difficulties backing up the system, transferring it, and getting it back on-line. Do you have a technician or someone who can come to our office in Germantown, Maryland to help us out? I think it would take just a few hours. Thanks,
