Slash on server running Livejournal?

posted by vroom on 07:35 PM July 23rd, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Maybe this is the wrong venue to ask in, and I'm sorry if it is, but this question has been nagging me for about the past week or so. I have a personal server running Slackware 8 with a custom-compiled Apache 1.3.27 (with the appropriate mod_perl) and MySQL 4.0.13. This server is currently running the LiveJournal server code and works quite well at this. I'm interested in attempting to set up slash for personal use (the Livejournal code is running for personal use as well), and herein lies the question. Can slash be run on the same server in another VirtualHost without having a separate apache installation/process and doing some fancy trick with mod_rewrite? Or am I asking too much? I will be happy to provide any further info anyone needs through e-mail (the e-mail link above is NOT spam-armored at all).

Best hosting service for Slash?

I'm going to be doing some "big things" with Slashcode but am interested in going through someone to set up Slashcode and the server, so that I can just right in and start building the site. What are the best hosting services out there? Will they set up Slash for me? What kinds of experiences have people had?

Multiple Instances

Please indulge a beginner.
I currently have slashcode setup on a single domain with its own IP address (wwwntm.biz) for testing purposes. Here is my dilemma.
I am setting up a community similar to yahoo/geocities. It will be www.newthoughtcommunity.net and the individual communities will be sub-domains of this domain ex; community1.newthoughtcommunity.net, community2.newthoughtcommunity.net etc
Residents of the communities will be set up as users ex; http://community1.newthoughtcommunity.net/user1, http://community1.newthoughtcommunity.net/user2 etc.

Directory is: /home /newthoughtcommunity
/community1
/community2
I know that slash can be setup with virtual domains, but can sub domains have there own instance.
I need each community to have their own slash.
Also. When I set up a new instance of slash for a virtual domain, do I use the same database and administrator with a new virtual user when I run DBI::Password?
Thank you for any help you can offer

section as subdomain (2.2.5 based install)

posted by Krow on 09:44 AM June 6th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Hello,

I have a slashcode version 2.2.5(*) based site under my command, for which an extension is planned, that would fit well in an isolated (isolate=1) section with a few modified templates put in the section-page (like header;etc;default).

I managed to configure a second virtual host that uses the same SlashVitualUser directive as the main-server with the sectionname as subdomain (etc.myslash.company), overriding the rootdir-variable using SlashSetVar and enforcing the section using SlashSetForm:

SlashSetVar rootdir //etc.myslash.company
SlashSetForm section etc

Everything works fine so far...
I just wondered if it is safe to use the same slash-site (db and all) within two virtual-hosts. And I wondered the more if there isn't an easier way to accomplish this.

As far as I understood mod_perl there shouldn't be any problem, but asking the masters seldom hurts but the professional pride...

* I did fix the released security-holes!.

tia,
kind regards
tomte

Translation Guide?

posted by Krow on 06:07 PM June 1st, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Is there any guide on how to translate slashcode (interface, at least the one seen by the users) to some other language?

Is the slashcode written so that can be easily translated to some other languages (UTF-8 not required) ?

Thanks!
