Re: different charsets (latin > utf8) and conversion

I can't provide a solution, but I do have the same problem, which manifests in a "Fatal conversion error" and hundreds of messages along the lines of: frank is the clean username for: » user id: 1 username: frank (1 posts) Yeah, I had that, too. Digging through the code, it looks like there is som...

different charsets (latin > utf8) and conversion

Hello there, Situation: phpBB2 installation which went mysql3 > mysql4.1 > mysql5.0 has database and tables set to latin1. The installation works fine (as does other packaged and self-written software). Installing phpbb3 created utf8-tables, which sounds great. However when trying to import my old d...

http://munin.projects.linpro.no/ Munin, like Cacti, is software for monitoring servers. It' usually installed, maintained and used by the administrator of a server. So it's not a Modification for phpBB (that's why I initially posted it to phpBB Discussion). It's just something that's useful for peop...

Anyone interested in munin-plugin for usersonline+posts?

http://www.fussball-forum.de/MM/munin-temp.png I hacked together two simple plugins to graph users-online and numberofposts for munin-users. If there is sufficient interest I'll tidy them up for a release, otherwise I'll just dump the code as is. So how many munin-users are there interested in such...

I don't think the number of updates in itself is a problem. If you look at mysql ( 3.23.x ) for example, they had 58 releases in a little over 4 years, which equals ~ 14 releases a year. I think the real issue is the "modifiabilibty" and extensibility of phpBB itself. It is clear from the code, that...

There are many ways to make money with open source. Or more specifically: whether you make money or not, is not (directly) related to the licensing of the software. Yet there is only one way to make absolutely perfect code (with time ofcourse) and that is open source. I don't know how you measure "...

You post about negligence is irrelivent because it is based around current law, NOT the law that was standing when the supposed negligence was commited. This is incorrect as was explained several times now. At a time when it was well known (and the tobacco comanies knew) that smoking is dangerous, ...

Re: Server configuration - Win XP, PhpBB

We have a Dual 3gHz server with 1MB ram. Is this going to cut it? Tell you the honest truth, right now even in the production phase these boards are too slow. I don't know about windows, but Nuttzy was managing 100+ concurrent phpBB users on an ancient FreeBSD box that had a 186 Mhz CPU (Cyrix 6x86...
