Yeah, it's a bit out of scope. The code's not _that_ hardcore, once you understand the roles of the two different passes we make.

It would've been nice if you told us what OS and webserver you're running.

Anyway, netcraft says you're running IIS 5 on Win2k. There's a known problem with IIS and autologin (see our sourceforge bug database). It's actually due to a known issue in IIS that MS has been ignoring for years.

I for one am desperately hoping that PHP will some day ship with the XML and XSL/T extensions built in by default. Then.. Oh, let's see, about 2 years after they do that, we can MAYBE expect everybody to have that version of PHP installed, and we can start using it. For comparison, PHP4 shipped over...

Yeah, but we don't support Oracle yet. So you can feel free to drop 5 figures on a piece of software that just sits there taking up space and looking pretty, but it's not what I'd recommend :)

Oh yeah, and I kinda doubt phpBB2 can handle the sorta load the hocp boys would be putting on it... Hard to say without knowing what their hardware's like though.

Will netscape 4.x do XSL/T on the client side?

I can't disagree that it wouldn't be nearly as widely-useable as phpBB is. There are a lot more issues around the specifics of your server setup for a java-based app. But if you're doing something large-scale that needs to seriously perform, it's a pretty damn good solution.

Yeah, except we'd be throwing away compatibility with non-ultramodern browsers. No thanks.

josh: I'm afraid I don't see what your point is. How exactly would that makes things either easier or faster?

Anyway, it's mostly a moot point because the templated bbcode made things more complex in the second-pass, requiring regexp replacements for everything.

Replies: 7
Views: 1680

You might be able to chown them as part of the upgrade hack... The problem is that the webserver (and therefore php) runs under the nobody userid, not under yours. The other option would be for the upgrade hack to chmod them to be world-writable. That wouldn't be very smart though, 'cause obviously ...

As much as I hate to say it, your best solution for something that big might be Infopop's OpenTopic. Its hosted on their beefy systems, backended by Oracle, and witten (I think) in Java (this is the downside of it IMO). But it'll cost you big bucks.... Java the downside? Say what? Man, I *wish* we ...

You want detail? Ok, you asked for it. :) This is what I posted waaaay back when we first cam up with this stuff: ----------- Here's v2.0 bbcode in a nutshell: The problem is that parsing the nestable tags (code, quote, and list) is necessarily slow. There's no way around that, other than not actual...
