Re: How hard would it be to share User DB across domains?

domain name is 100% irrelevant. the relevant part is the database used. if you use the same database for both boards with different prefixes (this may or may not be an easy fit to accomplish, depending on your hosting scheme), all you have to do is one minuscule thing: install the two boards, but do...

Re: phpbb fulltext versus mySQL fulltext searches

you can change the minimum length of word mysql will index by tweaking the mysql configuration file. while at it, you might want to disable the mysql list-of-words-to-ignore which is seriously brain damaged and you'll be much better off without it. if you do either of those, i presume you'll need to...

Re: Few suggestions to later versions

1: this is technically possible, but too expensive (basically, every topic would have to remember not just how many times it was viewed - a singl number - , but a full list of all those who viewed it - much more expensive, and then on each new view you'll have to search this list to see if it's a ne...

Re: phpBB vs. vBulletin

And the reason they don't exist is because they're too hard to get, define, and standardize. Everyone's server setup is different. I might be running MySQL and Apache on one box. You might have a cluster of separate machines all on a private network. i don't know that this argument is productive, b...

Re: phpBB vs. vBulletin

unfortunately, to this day i was not able to find any serious comparison that relates to performance. That's because performance is too subjective, whereas a straight list of features is to-the-facts and objective. i do not agree that performance is "subjective". at least not if you have a watch. i...

Re: Use this instead of another software

smf is not free. or rather, it is free as in "Free beer", but not as "free speech", and for me this is a deal breaker. as far as quality of software (and performance!) goes, phorum is actually ahead of phpbb. i like prosilver better than anything available on phorum (that i'm familiar with, at least...

Re: phpBB vs. vBulletin

there are many matrices that compare features. i do believe that these two products are pretty much comparable regarding to features, but you can check it here: http://www.forummatrix.org/compare/phpBB+vBulletin warning: the feature matrix may not be 100% up to date, but it's sure very close. i also...

Re: [3.0.x] Tweaks for large forums

sphinx is (almost trivially) better performer from mysql fulltext, native fulltext or postgresql fulltext. even if you do not enable "cron indexing" sphinx is much more performant, and if you do, everything becomes instantanous. comparing to mysql fullttext, sphinx has the added advantage that it al...

Re: [3.0.x] Tweaks for large forums

I found I was able to get a btter improvement by moving away from mysql-fulltext method, Although I did that to convert to innoDB I now have converted back as I have found innoDB to cause load spikes. when you say "away from mysql-fulltext" do you mean you use "native fulltext", some other search i...

Re: Discuss: phpBB moves code versioning from Subversion to

in most common workflows you do not commit (locally) and push (to the "master" repo). you commit locally, and then either send a pull request, or just publish a patch to be applied to the master repo by the maintainer. for instance, i do not recall *any* commits to the phpbb repo by davidiq, so this...

Re: Discuss: phpBB moves code versioning from Subversion to

I think he means what GIT refers to as "Staging"... You have to "stage" a change, before you can commit it. this is what i thought, and this was exactly my answer: you can tell git to state-and-then-commit-in-a-single-step by executing "commit -a". Or it could be the commit-then-push that git has i...

Re: Discuss: phpBB moves code versioning from Subversion to

.... Git makes you do an extra step when committing. But if it means more contributions to the project then so be it :D what extra step? you mean having to add "-a" to the commit command? (if this is your preference - you don't have to). you can teach git to use "-a" by default if this bothers you ...

specifically comparing to smf, for me the main issue is the license.
mybb i do not know, but for me it's not an option because of lacking language support.
