auto forum - $$

Post by scottyc5 » Sun Dec 21, 2003 10:04 pm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey, I want to start a free phpbb hosting server where users can sign up from one installation of phpbb. I will be willing to pay 15-20$ if you could get/make me one.

Thanks.

15-20 $ ... u're kidding right ? Do you have any clue how much work it would be? My thought's is that we are talking about 200-300 hours of work. At least I won't do it for 15-20 $ ;)

I'm making a Multi-forum MOD for the moment. This is only one little peace of an phpBB hosting service. Any use of that?

I think you will have performance problems on the long term. phpBB has it's limits.

Make the installation process automatic instead of making one phpBB installation. So when registering there will be some background unix process that will automaticly install a forum.

Several phpBB installations is beter that a big one.

You make shell script that is run when registering a new board.

The script 1) copies all files into a new directory 2) creates an database and user 3) creates the config.php files 4) open the forum

Or try to find some already made scripts like Fantastico.
