I thought it would be helpful if everyone submitted different solutions for when a script fails to work during coding.
For example, checking folders for permissions.

Hey Bargess. Considering that there's an infinite number of problems that can occur when coding, this would probably turn into a very random list. Also, submissions would vary by programming language, platform, language version, etc.
Instead, what do you think about posting resources that people have found to be helpful for solving coding problems? For example:
Ruby documentation (http://ruby-doc.org/).
Learning Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/).
Ruby questions on Stack Overflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/ruby).
#ruby and #ruby-lang on the Freenode IRC channel (http://freenode.net/using_the_network.shtml).
Ruby mailing lists (http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/community/mailing-lists/).
The PickAxe book (http://pragprog.com/titles/ruby3/programming-ruby-1-9).
Ruby Toolbox (http://ruby-toolbox.com/), a directory of various Ruby gems and plugins.
The official PHP documentation (http://php.net/docs.php). The search tool is extremely effective.
PHP questions on Stack Overflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/php).
#php on the Freenode IRC channel (http://freenode.net/using_the_network.shtml).
PHP mailing lists (http://php.net/mailing-lists.php).
Keep in mind that this isn't a definitive list. It's just what I use on a regular basis.
